  • 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.

  • Every year I write about mulch but no ones seems to care. Mounds of mulch still choke the trunks of trees everywhere you look this time of the year. Trees in landscapes look like telephone poles sticking out of soon-to-be-crusted-over black mulch. How’s that for a foreboding tale. Here’s the message, too much mulch is a bad thing. I know, some people have been liberated but we still have some more work to do. The bottom line: 2 inches of coarse mulch that is not piled around the trunk of the tree or shrub is the desired goal.

  • One of my favorite books on my shelf at home is a stolen hymnal.
    I stole it probably 15 or 16 years ago from church and about 12 years ago I told my pastor about it. That was after our church had already gotten rid of all the old hymnals and started putting the lyrics to the songs we sing in the weekly bulletin and on the video screen in the sanctuary during the service.

  • Good Friday Community Service will be held at 7 p.m. Friday at First Baptist Owenton. You are invited to the annual community Good Friday Service. Local pastors will be leading the service. Our theme is “Images of the Cross in Isaiah.” There will be powerful, uplifting music and a nursery will be provided.
