Today's Features

  • Good morning from the Branch, and it’s a very chilly morning here.
    I had to roll out of bed early and I was not ready to leave the warmth of my bed. It really feels like fall.
    I am up before the sun because I made the mistake last spring of making an appointment with Dr. Clements to have my yearly check up on Monday.
    Yes, I still have teeth thanks to Freddie.
    I’ve had my coffee and here I am at the computer before the sun is up typing away.

  • Josiah Sawyer Jury was born May 28, 2014, at 7:21 p.m. in Saint Elizabeth South Medical Center in Edgewood. He was 7 lbs. and 10 oz. and was 20 and a half inches long. He is the son of Tony and Kristy Jury of Glencoe. He is welcomed to the world by his brother Jeremiah, 5. His grandparents are J.O. and Judy Burkhead of Lancaster and Freddy and Jean Jury of Cox’s Creek.

  • I was amused the other day to read some suggested voicemails greetings that truly are a sign of the times in which we live.
    Here’s one that gave a chuckle:
    “Hello, I’m not here right now. In fact, I’m out getting a new parakeet. If you leave a message after the beep, I’ll be sure to get back to you. Oh, and by the way, a word of advice; never try to clean a parakeet cage with a vacuum cleaner.”
    And this one:

  • Anna Garrett Perkins and Bryan Estes are proud to announce the birth of their daughter, Kylee Rose Estes. She was born June 24, 2014 at LaGrange Hospital, weighing 7 lbs., 14.5 oz. and was 20.5 inches long. Her grandparents are Elizabeth Garrett and the late Robert Garrett of Ghent and Diana and Larry Estes of Owenton.  Kylee was welcomed home by her brothers Brandon, Brentan and Jerek.

  • Louisville Courier Journal columnist Alan Trout described him as “a grizzled specimen of cantankerous benevolence.”
    He relished life as a Owenton publisher, Middlesboro banker, U.S. marshal at Covington, and Bryan Democrat.
    Most knew him as a “keen judge of human nature,” and R.C. Ford made a name for himself in the annals of Owen County history.
    Their traits ranged from whimsical to wise to outrageously funny.

  • Andrew and Renee Glacken of Glencoe announce the birth of their daughter, Ashlyn K. Glacken.  Ashlyn was born July 2, 2014 at St. Elizabeth Edgewood. She weighed 5 lbs. 13 oz. and was 17 3/4 inches long. Her paternal grandparents are William and Rhonda Glacken of Glencoe. Her maternal grandparents are Stewart and Melissa Osborne of New Liberty.

  • From 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 31, Cedar Hill Baptist Church and the family of Mary F. Riddle will honor her with a reception to celebrate her 100th birthday. Everyone is invited.

  • Good morning from the Branch. It’s pleasantly cool at the moment  and the sun is shining. Summer has finally arrived.
    We had a horrendous storm on both Friday and Saturday nights, thunder and lightning like I have never seen before.
    Wanda said  it damaged several things at Pat New’s and “got” Barbara’s TV.
    The storm on Saturday night on the Branch didn’t destroy anything but played havoc with all our “programmed appliances.”

  • Stephanie Nicole Powers, daughter of Dawn and Fred Powers, Jr. of Versailles, and Mark Arron Northern, son of Ernie Northern and Kathy and Gary Northern, all of Richmond were united in marriage Saturday, April 26, 2014, at The Ashley Inn, Bryantsville, with the Rev. Todd Probus of Versailles officiating the ceremony.  
    The matron of honor was Jean Allen Ellington, aunt of the bride, of Owenton. Bridesmaids were Francis Rice Hall of Lexington, and Amy Kinsler of Crestview Hills, friends of the bride.
