Today's Features

  • Ms. Pamela Scott and the late Mr. Edwin Scott of Lawrenceburg announce the engagement of their daughter, Angela Rene Scott, to Joseph Alexander Sparrow, son of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Sparrow of Owenton. The bride graduated from Western Kentucky University with a masters degree in social work and a bachelor of science. The groom received a bachelor of science degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. A July 2013 wedding is planned in Shelbyville.

  • It’s a beautiful morning on the Branch.
    All my yellow lilies are blooming. We had rain again late Sunday afternoon. Fay said it poured at their house and they had over a half an inch.
    The rain means I’ll be on the mower again by mid-week.
    It’s too wet today and I have bridge tomorrow, so that means Wednesday, if it doesn’t rain again, I’ll mow.

  • She was known as the “White Tornado” and “Road Runner.”
    No one is sure whether she ever shouted “beep, beep” as she streaked past, but her energy was boundless, and when she went places her feet hit the ground running. It was as if life was so full she didn’t want to miss any part of it.

  • Everything is gray and damp this morning. I went out to put the mail in the box and checked the rain gauge. We had 8/10 of an inch last night.
    Fay said they got all the hay they had cut rolled by Wednesday, so they did some shopping at Carrollton toward the end of the week.
    She said there were a lot of sales going on there. They went to the big nursery there where they ran into Mr. and Mrs. Smith, who live on top of the cliff across from Old Cedar Church.

  • “Marriage does not only consist of gazing at each other, but rather it involves looking together in the same direction.”

    These words of early twentieth century French author, Antoine de Saint-Exupery, remind us that a successful marriage involves working together toward common goals.

  • It seemed to be just another old wooden spoon, yet the tiny cracks that traversed the worn handle added to the spoon’s character and emphasized the wood’s rich hues.
    The wooden spoon had served generations of Owen countians, and despite its age, was poised as if ready to stir a pot of simmering soup or scrape out the last remains of fried potatoes from an iron skillet.
    Wooden spoons were a necessary part of Kentucky frontier life.

  • I thought summer had finally come, but I’m back in jeans and a sweatshirt this morning. The blackberries are blooming in great clusters, so maybe this will be the last cold snap we’ll have, if you consider 58 degrees a cold snap.
    There was a lot of hay cut last week. I went to Frankfort and to church on Sunday and there was rolled hay everywhere. I have yet to see any tobacco planted though. This has been a bad spring for planting.

  • The families of Morgan Kennedy and David Thomas invite you to join them on their wedding day June 8, 2013, at 6:30 in the evening – 4090 Hwy 36, Williamstown, Ky. Dinner and dancing immediately following the wedding. Invitations were sent to family and out-of-town guests only.

  • They are at the heart of America’s success. Weather does not deter them from their commitment to their families, their communities and the American people.
    With little thanks, they work from sun up to sunset, and they take pride in their labors as they dedicate themselves to the preservation of the land and the gifts that spring forth from the ground.
    They are America’s farming families.
