BUDDING ARTIST — Stephen Herrell, 8-year-old son of Stacie and Kevin Herrell of Union City, made sure he got the right placement for the eyes on his ear of corn during the annual CornFest Chalk Art Contest held Tuesday afternoon at the Obion County Public Library. The 12th annual contest was sponsored by Simmons Bank, with Snappy Tomato Pizza and Union City Coca-Cola providing refreshments for participants. During the contest, the Friends of the Obion County Public Library hosted Roger Day in concert. CornFest activities continued today with 2019 Pride of Obion County Sacchi Doss being honored with a luncheon at noon. Thursday’s event will have Tips in the Jar, featuring John Fry and Harrison Fry, and Matt Crosson and Brent Hinson in concert during Music on the Rails at Discovery Park of America at 6:30 p.m. While the concert is free, food trucks will be available for purchasing dinner and beverages will be available on the train.
