Did you miss something in Putnam County this week? Chances are, one of our photographers was there.
Today I would like to take you back exactly 62 years to something that happened in the town of Flatwoods up in Braxton County. Flatwoods itself is a small place. There were only 277 people listed as living there in the 2010 census, although there have been people in the area since at least 1830.

WINFIELD -- If you are looking for something to do this weekend, Sept. 13 and 14, drive on over to Winfield for the 85th annual Putnam County Homecoming, but don't let its advanced age fool you. Sponsored by the Putnam County Lions Clubs and The Town of Winfield, the festival has gone through somewhat of a makeover, and is filled with great food, plenty of entertainment, a cruise-in, a 5K run, a street dance, and a parade, among many other activities.
Teays Physical Therapy Center Inc. & The Putnam Herald are pleased to present this week's Female Gamer of the Week award to Allison Clay of Hurricane High School.
