  • It seems the year comes and goes faster every year. I have hardly put away the lawn mower and I’m changing the house from the beautiful fall colors to the red, green and gold of Christmas. Yes, I said Christmas, can you believe it’s less than a month away?

  • It was moving day for the Orr family.
    By early morning, the household goods had been loaded into the wagon and the cow tied to the back. The rooster was separated from the laying hens and he was none too happy about the prospect of traveling alone in his cage. The horses were hitched and it is quite likely that tears clouded Loulu Orr’s eyes as her glance skimmed the yard and house she had called home for so many years.

  • The children of Gene and Beverly are proud to share in the celebration of their parent’s anniversary. On Nov. 25, 2012, Gene and Beverly Mason will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.

  • “The American people are amazing.”

    These words summarized the enthusiastic description of a bike trip across America. The May trek was achieved by Bro. Greg Guy, pastor of First Christian Church in Owenton, and his daughter, Judith.
    Bro. Greg was the special guest and featured speaker at the historical society Thanksgiving dinner last Thursday. His energy was contagious as the audience traveled alongside him on his rigorous yet rewarding journey through the towns, cities and countryside of our great land.

  • Just a quick note to clear up some errors in last week’s column. I should reread it before I send it rather than reading it when the paper comes out. Gene Rose is Stony’s “cousin.”
    In the paper last week, that sentence bumped up against the line dividing the next item on the page and “cousin” got left out.

  • Jesse and Kimberly Romans of Owen County proudly announce the upcoming marriage of their son, Steven T. Sanders to Nicole Young of Flatrock, Michigan. The couple will be united in marriage Nov. 17, 2012.
    The groom is a 2003 graduate of Owen County High and a 2011 graduate of electrical school. He is currently an electrical supervisor and the bride is currently a real estate agent.
    Both work and will continue to reside in Knoxville, Tenn.

  • The sun is shining this morning. After last week, that is news. I had to build a fire on Friday last. I don’t think I have ever had to start building fires this early. If that’s all I have to complain about I count myself very lucky.
