Those who enjoy drawing upon their artistic skills as they sketch a face, animal or scene might like “painting” pictures in chalk on a sidewalk.
Registration is open for artists for the 14th annual Oak Ridge Street Painting Festival. This popular event will be from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 5 (rain day on Oct. 6) on the sidewalks of the Oak Ridge branch campus of Roane State Community College.
Artists may start their chalk paintings on the afternoon of Oct. 4.

There’s no place like the South for its beauty and hospitality. Savannah, Ga., is the epitome of both with a big dose of history.
So what better place for Sarah Elizabeth Boles, with her trusty Roane County News in hand, to enjoy a fall 2012 vacation?
Boles is described by her daughter, Linda Tipton of Kingston, as “a young 93 years old,” and mother and daughter bring along their trusty hometown newspaper to enjoy while taking in the city’s beauty and historic splendor in a courtyard in downtown Savannah.
Annual Women’s Conference was held at New Covenant Baptist Church last Saturday and Sunday. The theme was “You Don’t Know My Story.”
Featured guest speaker was Dr. Wanda Taylor Smith. She retired from University Hospital in Cincinnati where she held as staff nurse and interim nursing administrator before retiring in 2003. She had a lot to say talking about, “You Don’t Know My Story.” Four videos were shown where these ladies told us “You Don’t Know My Story.”
