It’s been quite awhile since I’ve submitted anything. A lot has happened since my last submission.
As many of you already know by now, our family suffered another loss. On Christmas Day, we lost a very special member of our family. Vicki Atha will forever be in our hearts and will truly be missed by not only her family but by her community as well.
Nobody can talk about anything but the cold weather. We had at least 5 inches of snow over a three-day period. Luckily John and I hauled two loads of wood to the lower porch before all this started, so I was ready.
The end of the year is usually the time we celebrate and give thanks. It is also time for producers and landowners to consider planning for the next growing season.
Each fiscal year, the Natural Resources Conservation Service sets dates for program application ranking. Although dates may vary from one program to another, landowners may sign-up at any time for all conservation programs.
Calling the new book offered by the Owen County Extension Service a cookbook wouldn’t be telling half the story.
Owen County Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Science Judy Hetterman said the new book, “Living Well: More Than a Cookbook,” offers much more than traditional cookbooks including nutritional information, etiquette tips, financial pointers and plenty of helpful information about running a successful home.
Jacob Nicholas Rider of Owenton, a student at Owen County High School, was one of 96 young people preaching at the first annual Festival of Young Preachers in Louisville Dec. 7-9.
The Festival of Young Preachers offers young preachers from all denominations an opportunity to preach for their family, friends, other young preachers, and seasoned evaluators. The event is hosted by The Academy of Preachers, a fresh initiative underwritten by the Indianapolis-based Lilly Endowment.
