  • I’m back into my routine -- rush around and get it done on Monday morning. This means the holidays are finally over and I can get back to normal, whatever that is.
    I went to Frankfort on Saturday and stocked up on books and pet food. I have enough leftovers to last me till February.
    It was 0 degrees on my thermometer when I got up this morning. I got in enough wood last evening to last till Wednesday, so I won’t have to get out of the house. We cancelled bridge this week so I have no reason to, but nothing lasts forever in Kentucky.

  • The Delaware Indians called them the “Allegewa”and there is evidence of their presence in Owen County long ago. The remains of a stone tower, believed to have been built by these people, is perched atop a steep incline along Severn Creek.
    From its lofty height a great stretch of the Kentucky River along with the adjoining bottom lands can be seen.

  • “It’s as cheap as dirt, as plentiful as dirt and as dirty as dirt.”

    This quote reflected the opinion of someone who obviously had occasion to live in an era when bituminous coal was king in Kentucky.
    Though there may be truth in this statement the fact remains that coal played a integral part in the history of the commonwealth, and most Owen countians remember the days when area homes, businesses and schools depended on this smooth sooty sometimes smelly resource for heat.

  • The request came as a surprise to the Dunavents.
    As Christmas drew near the wish list of most Owen county girls their daughter’s age included ice skates, nylons, makeup, and the latest fashions on display at the Blue Front Department Store.
    But for Carlene Dunavent, the one item she most wanted was a nice warm robe to ward off the winter chill that invaded  her upstairs bedroom.
