  • Audree Young is proud to announce the birth of her baby brother, Bentley Carson. Bentley was born July 6, 2011, at Frankfort Regional Medical Center. He weighed 7 pounds, 1 ounce, and was 20-inches long. Bentley was welcomed home by his parents, Joe and Candace Young, and a host of family and friends.

  • On Aug. 19, 2011, Hardin and Katie Lowe of Sparta, will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. They were married at Sanders Baptist Church, where Hardin now serves as minister.
    Virginia McDanell Wheeler, sister of the bride, and Jean Thomas of Hodgenville, were bridesmaids. Joe Lowe, brother of the groom, and Tommy Duncan were groomsmen.

  • They come in all shapes and sizes, but their influence on families, communities, and the world is undeniable. Their stalwart determination and bravery was succinctly demonstrated as a historical society member, Dr. Tom Marshall, presented a program on “Women in War” at the historical society meeting Thursday. Tom, who served in the armed forces, worked at the Veterans Hospital for 32 years. It wasn’t until the late 1970s and early ’80s that women began to receive benefits as veterans of wars, a disconcerting fact for both Tom and the nation.

  • The 127 yard sale has come and gone for another year. From the number of signs and set-ups along the road, it must have been a success.

  • Beech Grove Baptist
    Bro. Steve delivered God’s word from Matthew 3:1-17. The title was “Righteousness Found in Baptism.” If you are not in God’s house on Sunday, you are missing out. It is a blessing to hear God’s word and fellowship with one another.

  • I continue to stand by my belief that my best defense in the garden is me. In the morning I go out and inspect my garden and smash insects and pick off diseased foliage, careful not to spread it to other plants by my own hand. I watch for the beginning of any abnormality and nip it in the bud. However, sometimes things slide by undetected, plus it is hard to determine bacterial brown spot from mosaic if you are not sure what you are looking for.

  • I was pleasantly surprised to find my neighbor and friend John Harrod featured in the “Kentucky Living” magazine this month. It was a very nice article.
    My only negative comment was that they said he lived in Owenton, and he doesn’t even live close to Owenton. He lives on Kay’s Branch just across from my John’s house and has lived there for years. The only connection he has with Owenton is the rural mail carrier that drops off his mail.

  • With great anticipation, the Owen County farming community has always looked forward to summer with its cornucopia of fresh vegetables nurtured in Kentucky soil; although, much of the soil in this area is better suited for a potter’s wheel.

  • Beech Grove Baptist
    Bro. Steve delivered God’s message titled “Reasons Baptists Reject Alcohol.” It reminded us all of the effects that alcohol has on the present and the future generations.
    This Thursday, the kids and youth will be going to Atlantis Water Park for a day of fun and Bible study. Contact Andrea for more information or to get a ride.
    Be in prayer for the sick and for each other. God bless you this week and our churches in Owen County.
    The doors of Beech Grove are always open to you.
