  • He was near six feet tall with broad shoulders and a sandy complexion. There is no doubt that commanding a keelboat on the Kentucky toughened his body and expanded his horizons; and although at times his profanity shocked the naive, no one doubted the skill and sincerity of Owen County riverman and wharfmaster Dennis Byrnes.      

  • The weather is changing but very slowly. The theme for this column is bush hogging, cutting wood and policing up the area for cold weather.
    John has cut a large load of wood and stacked it under my porch at the back, so I am ready if it ever turns cold. I have been digging out and spreading small piles of dirt that Adam dug out of the creek when he cleaned it this summer, so if it ever rains again, it will be ready to seed.

  • Every few years I go home.
    Although home for me for the past 25 years has been here in Florida, “home” home is Southern California. My DNA is a combination Valley Girl and the OC.
    Last week I went home to attend my only, and therefore by default, favorite sister’s 40th wedding anniversary party.
    I missed her wedding 40 years ago when I was living in Maine and very, very pregnant with my daughter Alison, who also flew out to California from her home in Maryland, along with my favorite only granddaughter, Caroline.

  • Monterey Baptist Church News
    Our fall festival was a big success Friday night with 10 Trunk-or-Treat stations and over 100 children and adults joining us for the fellowship. Thanks to everyone who donated and volunteered to make the night a success.
    October is Pastor Appreciation Month and our church family presented Pastor Jeremy with a new couch for his office on Sunday morning as a token of our appreciation for all he does for our church and church family.

  • I must start with corrections this morning. I typed Jerry Urie but it was Jenny Urie who was working at the fair, and I put Bruce instead of Ray that was doing the bush hogging. Bruce had hired someone to do his land. That means nothing to anyone else but Ray and Bruce, but Wanda has to keep me straight.
    Mike and Gwen were very fortunate. They didn’t have anything but a few small limbs broke in their yard and a lot of rain. Wanda said they boarded up the larger windows, just to play it safe, but all is well in their area.

  • Today I did not go to Beall’s Outlet next to Publix in Inverness.
    That may not mean much to you, but to me it was a major big deal.
    Lately, I haven’t been able to stop at Publix without checking out the outlet. Even if I park far away I’ll say, “I need to walk more,” and head over to see what’s new at Beall’s.

  • Owenton First Baptist
    Sunday morning we were challenged with a message from John 4 on “What Saving Faith Looks Like.” We ended the day with a message from Genesis 1 on “Creation: What You Believe Matters.” It was a great day of worship with the people of God.
    Manna in the Morning will meet today (Wednesday) at 10:00am. This bible study is a one-hour exegetical study that is open to all.
