Last week’s weather was spectacular. It’s a good thing, I saw tobacco in the field on the way to Owenton last week and there was still a field full of tobacco on the stick in the big field across from the church Sunday morning. This is about as late as I have ever seen tobacco still in the field. Hopefully they got it hung before the rain started.
I am hoping the rain holds off, too. This is the week our golf club goes to Wheatley for the “Away Play” day. It will be our last outing of this year. My clubs will go to the basement for the winter.

They started on Joel’s new building at Earthtools last week. Some of the framing of the sides are in place. If they have good weather this week, it should be under roof by Friday. They work pretty fast once they get started.
Owen countians have always experienced new beginnings. The first settlers traveled to the area by way of the Cumberland Gap, literally hacking their way through the dense forests. Some were killed by Indians, others suffered from starvation, cold and disease. Yet their desire for a new beginning and a better life strengthened their resolve.
