  • Kay’s Branch News: Things starting to slow down here on the Branch

    It really feels like fall this morning. We had three inches of rain over the weekend but missed the bad storms and heavy rain. We did manage to get a load of wood split, hauled in and stacked in the wood shed on Saturday afternoon, but that was the extent of my nod to “gathering nuts for the winter” this week.
    Fay said they did get the Soup Sunday at church in before the rain ran them inside. She said there was a very good crowd and plenty of soup. They were going to start their wood gathering this week but would wait till the woods dried a bit.

  • Bad night in Bellevue

    The Owen County High School football team went to Bellevue High School Friday night and hoped to take with them some momentum generated by their victory last week.
    It was not to be.
    The Tigers raced out to a 38-0 lead after the first quarter and never looked back. They would eventually win the game 61-0.
    The win was the second straight for Bellevue over a Class 2A District 5 team. The Tigers defeated Carroll County High School last week.
    Bellevue used a balanced offensive attack from a pair of seniors to win the game.
