Several kids who were rock hunting Monday afternoon. They are (from left to right) Cooper Elsen, Pryce Eagan, Kamryn Mitchell, Belle Roush, Draden Black, Charley Roush and Preston Elsen.

If you live in Shelby County, or have spent any time at all in Shelby County for the last week or two, you probably know what “Shelby County Rocks” is. It’s something that local people of all ages has caught on to and spent hours participating in.
   Basically, people (mainly children...but not always) go out looking for decorated rocks that have been hidden in businesses, alley-ways, the library steps, nursing homes, and about anywhere else you could imagine. When you find a rock, it may have a message, picture, design, or just a pretty color painted on it. After spending time finding rocks, then you go back out and hide them in new spots for others to find.
   Heather Christine introduced the idea to Shelby County by starting a “Shelby Co. Rocks” Facebook page.
