  • Dealing with dead animals is a reality for any livestock owner.  There have been laws on the books for years as far as how to dispose of them, but for the most part, they’ve been somewhat impractical and very expensive for the small farmer who had an animal die on their farm.
    Because of this, many farmers have been dragging dead animals to an out-of-the-way place on the farm and letting the buzzards and coyotes dispose of the carcass.

  • As his lean, nimble fingers glided effortlessly along the dulcimer strings, Ron Devore coaxed a variety of melodious songs from his instrument. The soft-spoken gentleman, dressed in bibbed overalls, delighted his audience Thursday at the monthly historical society meeting.
    At times, the strings jumped as they danced lively to Bluegrass tunes or Appalachian clogging; then would soften to the wailful love songs of 16th-century England. In either case, there was plenty of toe-tapping, hand-clapping accompaniment from appreciative spectators.

  • Throughout the years, Owen countians have dealt with houses displaying leaky roofs, crumbling porches, and weather-beaten exteriors. Many family homesteads were ravaged by insects, rodents and time; yet from one generation to another, families of Owen County gathered to repair, repaint, and rejoice over the ability to rejuvenate the family home yet once again.
