  • Henry Howard “Cotton” Abell, 94, first started taking pictures when he was 10 years old. He won a kite-flying contest and the first prize was a box camera. He continued taking pictures until a few years ago due to macular degeneration. Cotton took most of the photos featured in Cotton’s Corner, but his first cousin, Bill Abell, also took some. Bill gave Cotton his slides when he moved to Louisville in the 1950s. Some of the photos in Cotton’s collection were also taken by Huley Browne. Browne’s widow, Violet, gave Cotton his slides after he passed away.

  • The Kentucky Cattlemen’s Foundation announced Tuesday of last week that the Marion County Animal Shelter will receive $500 from the Animal Shelter Assistance program. In addition to this funding, the Marion County Cattlemen’s Association donated another $250 to the shelter.
    The Animal Shelter Assistance program was funded this year from a donation made by Boyle County cattle farmer Jim Gage. Gage realizes the importance of helping your local animal shelters and knows that both farmers and shelters are in the business of taking care of animals.
