    On March 29, a bus of OCHS students arrived at St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal Church in Harrods Creek, Ky.

    They took their seats in the church pews and awaited for the concert of Chanticleer to begin.

    Chanticleer is a world-famous all men’s choir, vocalists ranging from soprano to bass. The group is based out of San Francisco, but travels across the globe year-round and rarely ends up as close to Owen County as they did last Tuesday.

  • Poised near the road and surrounded by a tangled web of weeds, it has staunchly stood its ground for many years. Though the elements have claimed the porch roof, the remainder of its structure survived, and today, the Greenup one-room school continues to whisper stories of long ago.

    In 1821 the Kentucky State Legislature passed a public school act for elementary schools. Local taxation was expected to provide for schools, and though the act was not compulsory, it did become the foundation for Kentucky’s educational system.

  • Nicholas and Shelby Carter are proud to announce the birth of their third son, Campbell Ashlen Carter.

    He was born at 8:55 a.m., Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2016, at Frankfort Regional Medical Center. He was 8 lbs, 13 oz. and 21 inches long.

    He was welcomed into the world by his two older brothers, Carson, 8, and Cooper, 4.

  • Kevin and Gabrielle Welsh of Worthville are proud to announce the birth of their daughter, Khloe Grace Welsh.

    Khloe was born at 2:26 a.m., Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2016 and weighed 6 lbs. and 13 oz.

    Proud grandparents are Jim and Pru Grider of Owenton and David and Darlene Welsh of Sheffield, Penn. Proud cousins are Kaileigh and James Grider.

  • Most of the news? This morning it’s house, outbuilding and yard cleaning.

    Wanda said Barbara’s birthday was April 2, so she volunteered to help her clean out her garage/storage building as a birthday gift. It hadn’t been done since David passed away.

    Vanessa came and helped for a while too. She said they got a lot done. David had a lot of stuff, so they spent much of their time with, “What is this for?” and “What about this?”

    The way I like to tell the story, Harold Wainscott was in a restaurant with his wife Betty Jo and their friends David and Mary Marlow while on a senior citizens’ trip to New York City.

    Billionaire Donald Trump was seated at a table across the room. Harold saw an opportunity to impress Betty Jo and the Marlows, his neighbors in Owenton, population 1,300.

  • How much would you pay to have your prayers answered?

    For the past four years, until the Seattle-based website with 1.3 million Facebook fans was taken down, people could pay the Christian Prayer Center between $9 and $35 to pray for them.

    From 2011 to 2015, more than 125,000 people forked over more than $7 million for their more than 400,000 transactions/prayer requests.

  • Monterey Baptist Church

    We celebrated Sunday morning with Brian and Tara Hawkins and their children Austin, Bailey, and Brayden as they officially joined our church family. Welcome Hawkins family!
