  • Kay’s Branch News by Bee Spicer: Strong turnout for Arts in the Park

    Last week was a picture postcard week for our area, sunshine, mild breezy days, fit for about anything one would want to do outside. I divided my time between mowing and cards. The third week of the month always has bridge on Tuesdays and hand and foot on Fridays. I did well at cards, won at bridge and split the games of hand and foot. I can take my winnings and buy a cup of coffee anywhere.

  • Uncovering history

    Steve Stewart had driven past the Carr Cemetery countless times and never noticed it.
    Tucked across from the Voice of Thunder Church, the Carr Cemetery had become a victim of time with brush and trees blocking out part of Owen County history.

    Robertson had been researching his genealogy for several years and that hunt led him to Owen County.
    He found the Carr Cemetery nearly hidden under years of undergrowth and brush.
