  • After a week of cold and clouds, the sun came out and we had a lovely day Saturday. Ann, Pat and I went to lunch at Panera Bread Cafe next door to the Longhorn. I hadn’t been there before, so it was nice to try something new. I liked it very much. We’re going to try it again sometime.

  • A few weeks ago, family and friends gathered around a historical society member, Joyce Hill Smith Hardin, to mourn the loss of her husband, Scott Hardin. Pictures of Scott were on display, and those images conveyed a celebration of a life filled with unforgettable memories.

  • We’re in the Big Dance! And I’ve made it through another weekend without having a heart attack. In case you haven’t heard, UK beat North Carolina Sunday evening. Just one more weekend to suffer through and I can concentrate on golf and yard mowing.
    It didn’t look much like yard-mowing weather Sunday morning — 32 degrees and a covering of snow on the porch and yard when I got up. Welcome to spring in Kentucky.

  • One traditional way that Owen countians have immortalized their families is by collecting, recording, and passing down recipes to their loved ones.
    For most people, food and family are intimately connected, and family recipes are a way of keeping our ancestry, as well as a part of ourselves, alive. Cooking from family recipes can evoke vivid memories of childhood, reminding us of experiences long forgotten and allowing us to relive those feelings of comfort and excitement.

  • Since the beginning of time, women have played a vital role in the affairs of the world. March is “Women in History” month and we reminisce and celebrate the resilient fortitude and achievements of the women of Owen County.
