    Owen County Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Science Judy Hetterman is no stranger to accolades. During her 39-year tenure with Kentucky’s extension service, her awards and recognition have been plentiful.

  • Cemetery at Squiresville set to receive makeover from OCES students

    While many family histories can be found in old books or the internet, many others can be found in family cemeteries. These cemeteries hold years of family decedents that can help draw a bigger and better family tree for the remaining members of their family.
    As family cemeteries grow older, many are left to nature and become overgrown or destroyed.

  • God bless the neighbor lady, my evil twin and alter ego

    It’s been a while since my neighbor lady has wreaked havoc on my life.
    However, this past week she made up for lost time.
    To bring you up to speed on who my neighbor lady is: She’s my evil twin, my alter ego, an overbearing, intrusive buttinsky mother who has trouble remembering that once the umbilical cord is cut moments after birth, it should not and cannot ever be reattached and it is futile and foolish to even try — although she’s been trying for more than 40 years.
