  • He stood six feet tall. His finely chiseled face was framed by curly brown hair, and according to an admirer, his gray eyes “reflected strength of character.”
    One Northern newspaper branded him “the king of horse thieves, a bandit, a freebooter, no better than a thug,” while in the South he was admired as “the thunderbold of the Confederacy.” Most Owen countians supported his cause, embraced his ideology and offered him sanctuary whenever he visited the area.

  • I got up and rebuilt my fire this morning. I let it go out Saturday, laboring under the delusion that spring might actually be here. It was in the high 40s and the sun was shining. Fay said they got out and cleaned their Martin houses and rearranged them. They didn’t have many last year, so they decided it was the locations. They had just gotten the job done and were back in the house when they saw the first scout fly in. The birds are on schedule, even if Mother Nature is not.

  • Her thickly lashed gentle eyes gazing from the photo reflected a serene spirit. Despite her size she was well proportioned, and like many of her kind she holds a special place in the hearts of those who care for her.

  • Wanda has been to Mexico with an MKL tour group. They flew out of Cincinnati last weekend to a near perfect 75 degree, four-star Ixtapan spa. It sits in the foothills of the Sierra Madres Mountains. She didn’t say how many were in the group, but it was a mix of wives and husbands and ladies that needed a break from the winter weather.
