Today's Features

  • With  this year’s “Monterey Homecoming Fair” drawing near, there were several people who made it out last Saturday to take part in helping to clean up our town. I would like to take this time to personally thank each and everyone of them. Besides Colleen and myself, there were Vanessa Wilhiote, Johnny, Robin and Kimmie Gentry, Brett Hall, Lonnie Reed, Jimmy, Tammy and Marcus Powers, Monterey Mayor Dennis Atha, Amanda Hammonds, Rachel Hall, Randy Fitzgerald, Robert (Weiner) and Dylan Gilbert and Christina Loucks.

  • Fall has finally arrived along with the World Equestrian Games extravaganza, the University of Kentucky’s umpteenth loss to Florida and our theater season.

  • The weather was just about as good as it can get last week, pleasant mild days and cool nights, great for golf, mowing and sleeping.

    Bruce and Fay cut hay all week. They did Wanda’s field and then mowed our field across the road and the ones on this side too. I don’t think he got three rolls out of the whole lot of them. It has been so hot and dry here most of July and August that the second cutting just hasn’t grown much. It does look nice and neat now though.

  • Linda Smith said everyone has something nice to say about Owen County – and that’s exactly why she decided to bring her consignment shop from Warsaw to Owenton.

    YOUniquely-U recently opened on the corner of West Seminary and Main streets; and Smith said with a new location and more room, she hopes her business will soon take off with Owen countians.

  • For Humberto and Amber Moran, opening a business in Owen County means staying close to family – including their church family at Beechwood Assembly of God.

     

    Humberto, also known as Chino, and Amber have been living in Owen County for three years. He was doing construction work on power plants, but to continue the job he would have had to move to Alabama.

     

    “We just didn’t want to leave our church family. They’ve been great for us,” Amber said.

     

  • The descendants of the Rev. Silas Alexander Hudson (1819-1907) will meet Sept. 5 for the 79th consecutive year. The Hudson-Jones Reunion will convene at 1 p.m. for a potluck lunch at the old New Columbus Schoolhouse, now the private residence of Bill and Faye Prewitt, at 16065 New Columbus Road/KY Rt. 607.

    Family memories and genealogy will be shared, and organizers are hopeful that representatives from each of Hudson’s nine descending families will attend. All descendants, and others interested in the history of the Hudson family, are invited.

  • This coming Sept. 11 will mark a day of remembrance across the country.

    But a special event in Owen County will mark and honor a treasured part of Owen County’s agricultural history.

    A special tractor parade will wind its way across Owen County starting at 10 am. Sept. 11.

    Johnny Stewart, who is organizing the parade, said he hosted a tractor show in May as a fund-raiser for Relay for Life and the success of that event sparked the idea for the parade.

  • As you are all well aware of by now, the 127 yard sales were off and running this past weekend.

    I ended up stopping at a few on my way in on Friday. My first stop was at Colleen’s house. There I saw several familiar faces, some of which I hadn’t seen in quite awhile, including Linda Alexander.

  • The Owen Electric Cooperative is getting “smart.”

    The cooperative is receiving over $1.5 million in matching funds through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act from the U.S. Department of Energy.

    With help from the cooperative research network and 19 other cooperatives, the funds will be used to evaluate the benefits of “smart” technologies for consumer members.
