    Seniors in English 12 at Owen County High School have had the opportunity to engage the world of modern literature with “Thirteen Reasons Why,” a modern novel by Jay Asher, exhibiting the stigma associated with suicide.

    The book not only offers insight on a trouble teen’s life, but presents her story to various characters in a way that causes reflection on their actions and how they were, a “reason why” the protagonist took her life.

  • Luke Saunier, Fire Chief with the Kentucky Division of Forestry will present a fun presentation with lots of audience participation after school at 3:15 p.m., Thursday, March 3.

    Those attending will learn how the plants in the forest communicate with each other through an audience-engaging skit where children build a forest and act out the roles of trees, insects and nature.

    There will also be an informative analysis on the importance of trees and plants to Kentucky from a biological, sociological and economic perspective geared for students in grades K-8.

    Raising small poultry flocks on the farm or in the backyard has become very popular. The most important things to remember when choosing the type of housing are provisions for adequate shelter from weather, adequate ventilation and also protection from predators.

    You should choose housing that is easy to build from readily available materials. Housing should also have a low maintenance cost and support the changing needs of your flock.

  • We have about two and a half inches of snow on the ground this morning, but the temperature is rising as I sit here and type.

    The boys at Joel’s cars are going to work as if nothing was on the roads. The weatherman said we would have rain by noon. I don’t plan to be out till tomorrow, so I hope things have settled down by then.

    This is my busy week. Bridge on Tuesday, hair cut on Thursday and Hand and Foot on Friday.

    The Monterey Fire Department is having a chili supper at 6 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 20, at the firehouse.
