Today's Features

  • I must start off with a correction. It was not Jeannie Williams Baker who went to the dance with Joyce, Cig and Coleman. It was Jeannie Barber Jones. I’m not sure if it was me reading it wrong or Wanda’s mistake. I do have a tendency to anticipate when I read the e-mails late at night. I may have read “Jeannie,” and because the only Jeannie I know is Jeannie Williams, I just typed in her name instead of actually reading the sentence verbatim.

    On Oct. 28, several retired teachers were invited to Owen County Primary School to be guest readers in classrooms.

  • Age does not deter 80-year-old Don Crugger and his 76-year-old brother, Clay, from their dedication to the preservation of the Smith Cemetery in Breck. Breck was always a small community in Owen County, originally comprised  of several homes and a grocery. Today, all that remains of Breck is a couple houses, the Smith Cemetery, and some who are determined to keep alive the history of the people who lived, died and are buried there.

  • Matt and Meagan Greenlee were married Oct. 1, 2011, at Headgates in Monterey.

  • Robbin and Michael Walker would like to announce the birth of their first child, Rylee. She was born at 1:01 p.m., Oct. 14, 2011, at Baptist Hospital Northeast in LaGrange. Rylee was 6 pounds, 3 ounces, and was 19-inches long.
    Maternal grandparents are Gary and Amanda Gaines of Owenton and Barb and Buster Daniels of Independence. Paternal grandparents are Jeff Walker and Marcie and Jason Weiss of Carrollton.
    Rylee was welcomed home by her grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts and uncles.

  • It was a slow week. No yards to mow, the golf clubs had been stored away, and the wood is ready to start building fires. I did go to my first yoga class last Wednesday. In the beginning I didn’t think I was going to like it, but by the time the class was over I had decided it might do me some good. At least, get me out of the house once a week.

  • Owen County Friends of Animals Inc. has partnered with an MBMS Student Technology Leadership Program group, “Animal Allies,” to offer Owen  countians a low-cost TNR (trap, neuter/spay and return) program for feral cats through H.O.P.E. clinic in Versailles. The program provides altering, vaccinations, deworming and basic vet care for feral cat colonies trapped and returned to the location where they were trapped.
    For this program to be successful, organizers need the following:
    •  Donations.

  • Some of the memories we hold most dear are those of our childhood; and those reminiscences of the past are significant pieces of our history to be shared with others.
    Larry Dale Perry and Peggy McDannell Trinkle remember growing up on East Adair Street, better known as “Dog Hill.” No one knows for sure where the area got the name of Dog Hill, but perhaps the numerous dogs wandering about the streets at that time contributed to its fame.

  • Beech Grove Baptist
    To be in the Lord’s House worshiping together should bring a smile to our faces and praise to our lips. Lord, our Lord, how magnificent is his name.
    Bro. Steve reminded us that everything we have belongs to the Lord. The sermon was from Malachi 3:7-12 titled “Blessings In Tithes and Offerings.”
    Be sure to make your plans for our holiday meal Nov. 27 after the morning service. Please free up the afternoon and bring a dish to enjoy with your brothers and sisters in Christ.
