Today's Features

  • Perennial rose bushes grace either side of the monument; and for the past 90 years they have faithfully sent forth abundant blossoms. It is as if the rose bushes themselves acknowledge the great service rendered by the soldier whose remains rest beneath the ground under their outstretched roots.

  • Easter, all the news in the community is about Easter this week. Well, almost all. All the churches in the area were full. After a less than beautiful start the day turned out very nice.
    Old Cedar had its sunrise service in the church this year. The wind was just too raw to venture out and the rain didn’t add to the ambiance. Our preacher is new and had visions of a sunrise service too, but we nixed it.
    Christians (Disciples) aren’t as hardy as Baptists, but we had a lovely service anyway.

  • 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.

  • Southern Gospel recording artist Kenny Bishop will be singing at Long Ridge Baptist Church on March 31 during the 11 a.m. worship service.
    The public is invited to the special Easter service to hear Bishop, a popular Christian singer who is a regular on the Gaither Homecoming videos.
    For nearly 20 years, Bishop traveled with his father and brother in one of Christian music’s favorite southern Gospel trios.
    The Bishops garnered several industry and fan awards including the coveted Dove Award as well as numerous number one and top ten songs.

  • Cedar Hill Baptist
    We were blessed with special music by The Living Word Trio. We appreciate them traveling and sharing their God-given gifts with us. Bro. Bill’s message was from the book of Ruth on “When Famine Comes.”

  • Everyone who lives in Kentucky knows that the weather here can be fickle, but this is ridiculous.
    After a beautiful spring day and 70 degrees on Saturday, Sunday was a real bummer.
    Wanda said Ray had gathered a can of nightcrawlers and was planning to go fishing, but that plan was snowed out. I saw them, dressed in padded coveralls walking up the road Sunday afternoon toward his sister’s house instead.

  • 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.
