Today's Features

  •  Have you seen “This is Us?”

    It’s an NBC drama on Tuesday nights that follows the Pearson family: three siblings -- Kevin, Kate and Randall -- and their parents, Jack and Rebecca.

    Actually, Kevin and Kate are two-thirds of a set of triplets. The third triplet, Kyle, died at birth.

  • Monterey Baptist 

    We are very happy to welcome the Todd Woodyard family into our MBC family. We are excited to know what God has in store for this family. 

    Wednesday night has something for all ages. The Rock Stars (children) meet in the sanctuary, the men’s Bible study meet in the fellowship hall and the women’s Bible study meet in the youth room. All begin at 7 p.m.

  • For centuries blisters, bunions and boils were treated with home remedies, as were more serious illnesses. From purging to blood letting to herbal poultices, folks treated themselves, their families and their neighbors, using remedies passed down through generations.
    With the advent of antibiotics, many old remedies went out of vogue. Although leeches and maggots were used since ancient times, by the 20th century they became a treatment of the past. That is, until recently.

  • Unless you have been vacationing in Florida since Christmas you have noticed it’s been raining a great part of the time since before Christmas. Wanda said we’ve had two and a half inches. I know it’s been more like 5 inches. Cedar Creek is full and holding back Kay’s Branch and water is filling the creek clear past Bruce’s barn. On the farm that Ray lives on in Franklin County, the ground is so wet the cows are sinking into the middle of their legs. It makes it hard to feed from the tractors.

  • There’s always something new to click on Facebook, and recently it’s been “What Has 2016 Taught You?”
    According to Facebook, here’s what I’ve supposedly learned this past year:
    “Forgiving is easy; it’s trusting them again that’s hard.”
    The folks or whoever/whatever at Facebook added, “The past year has changed you completely. You’ve seen your life from a completely different angle, and this led you to new experiences.”
    Hmmm.

  • First Baptist Owenton
    We give glory to God for another wonderful day of worship. Our pastor brought a message from John 8:31-31 on the marks and benefits of a Christian. During the evening we enjoyed the Family Fun Fellowship and what a night of great activities, food, and fellowship.
    The Church Co-ed Volleyball League is now in full swing and matches will be played every Monday evening which will result in the basketball court being closed from 5:45 p.m.-closing. First Baptist will play at 7:30 p.m., this Monday.

  • It was said the secret tunnel snaked its way underneath the streets of Owenton from the Owen County Courthouse to one of the nearby banks.
    While attending Owen County Schools, Owen County Senior Center Manager Stacy Sipple Long, heard about this underground passage. The story goes that it provided a safe way for a judge to leave the courthouse if he rendered an unpopular verdict.

  • Here we are nine days into the new year. The 8th was Elvis' birthday. Danny's would have been the 9th, as was Joanne Ballenger-Wright. Everett Hawkins' was Tuesday. He is doing well after his extensive cancer treatments.
    Billy Ballenger picked Everett up on Thursday after the snowfall in his side by side. They four-wheeled over Wanda's farm, Bruce's land and Everett's farm, enjoying the snow. The "buggy" is fitted with a good heater, of course.

  • Gary and Marsha Derringer are pleased to announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Mariah Kathryn Derringer, to Thomas Howard Lackey. Thomas is the son of Regina Novak of Frankfort, and David Neal of Owenton.  The wedding will take place at 6:30 p.m., Friday, June 16, 2017, at Monterey Baptist Church.  
    Mariah is a senior at Western Kentucky University and will graduate in May with a degree in Financial Management.  Thomas is a junior and is studying to receive a degree in Computer Science in 2018.
