    Weekend Gardner

    There are many gardening tasks that must be done or are better done in the fall of the year.  Things like cleaning up old plant material; fertilizing trees, shrubs and lawns; and protecting tender plants like hybrid tea roses and French hydrangeas.  These chores are all a part of garden maintenance and taking care of them now will improve the quality of your garden later.  Here’s a checklist to remind you of what needs to be done to get the garden ready for winter.

  • As an athlete, there is nothing better than the roar of the crowd. Players and coaches love coming on to the court or the field seeing their school colors filling the bleachers.
    In an effort to say thank you to those loyal fans, a number of Owen County student-athletes spent Oct. 10 taking part in REBELSoutREACH.
    It’s a day for student-athletes to give back to those who support them.

    Doors will open to new water plant
    Oct. 20, 2010

    After years of construction and planning, local residents will get a chance to look inside the new water-treatment plant near the Owen/Franklin County line.
    Kentucky American Water has announced it will hold an open house Friday for the community to get a peek. The plant, located on U.S. 127, became operational in September after two years construction.

  • In Kentucky, the weather always comes first.
    It was 22 degrees Saturday morning, 26 on Sunday and 24 on Monday.
    Everywhere else was registering in the low 30s on the TV map. I think my thermometer is just old and gets colder than most, but it works for me.
