    MADISONVILLE — As longer nights, cooler temperatures and harvest time approaches, officials are urging motorists to stay cautious of a common autumn road hazard.

    Oct. 16-22, 2016, is Retired Teacher Appreciation Week in Kentucky.  
    Owen County has over 90  retired teachers. Many of them contribute to life in their communities. Last year, Owen County retired teachers volunteered over 6,000 hours for others, serving in their churches, the schools, and/or civic and youth organizations. They also gave their time to help in district and statewide endeavors such as the retired teachers’ 5th district and at the state fair for 4-H and Homemakers.

  • I must start with corrections this morning. I typed Jerry Urie but it was Jenny Urie who was working at the fair, and I put Bruce instead of Ray that was doing the bush hogging. Bruce had hired someone to do his land. That means nothing to anyone else but Ray and Bruce, but Wanda has to keep me straight.
    Mike and Gwen were very fortunate. They didn’t have anything but a few small limbs broke in their yard and a lot of rain. Wanda said they boarded up the larger windows, just to play it safe, but all is well in their area.

  • Today I did not go to Beall’s Outlet next to Publix in Inverness.
    That may not mean much to you, but to me it was a major big deal.
    Lately, I haven’t been able to stop at Publix without checking out the outlet. Even if I park far away I’ll say, “I need to walk more,” and head over to see what’s new at Beall’s.

  • Owenton First Baptist
    Sunday morning we were challenged with a message from John 4 on “What Saving Faith Looks Like.” We ended the day with a message from Genesis 1 on “Creation: What You Believe Matters.” It was a great day of worship with the people of God.
    Manna in the Morning will meet today (Wednesday) at 10:00am. This bible study is a one-hour exegetical study that is open to all.
