Today's Features

  • “My Daddy said when he was a young man he was riding horseback one night when this great light came on and followed him as his horse galloped homeward. As the horse and rider passed the Greenup cemetery, the great light suddenly disappeared.”

    Owen County ghosts, goblins and ghouls were  featured in the 1966 Owen County Historical Almanac.

  • It really feels like fall this morning. We had three inches of rain over the weekend but missed the bad storms and heavy rain. We did manage to get a load of wood split, hauled in and stacked in the wood shed on Saturday afternoon, but that was the extent of my nod to “gathering nuts for the winter” this week.
    Fay said they did get the Soup Sunday at church in before the rain ran them inside. She said there was a very good crowd and plenty of soup. They were going to start their wood gathering this week but would wait till the woods dried a bit.

  • Beech Grove Baptist
    Bro. Steve delivered God’s word from Ezekiel 22:26-31 titled “Similarities We Must See.”
    We praised God through songs lead by Dave Jones and were blessed with Mary Marlow’s wonderful talent of playing the piano. It is great to be able to join together with brothers and sisters in Christ to praise God in his sanctuary.
    Our quarterly business meeting will be Oct. 13 after the morning worship. WOM will be having its meeting at 4 p.m. at the church. All women are welcome to attend.

  • “We could never have loved the earth so well if we had had no childhood in it.”

    These words of George Eliot emphasize the splendor of the world viewed through the eyes of children. It is a place of miracles and magic, an enchanted kingdom where colors are more brilliant, the air softer, the love of family and friends more precious and the unfolding of each new day more awe inspiring.

  • I’m not getting up as early on these cloudy, chilly mornings, so I am a bit behind.
    I did catch Fay before they left the house. They have been finishing their haying and running fence around the winter pastures, preparing to move their cattle. It’s not really officially fall but farmers are already getting ready for winter.
    The tobacco crop was beautiful this year and most has already been cut and housed. The fields are being cultivated and laid by for spring.

  • Leslie McNay and Daniel Buchanan with their parents would like to announce their upcoming wedding. Leslie and Daniel began dating in 2005 at Owen County High School where they both graduated. The couple will exchange vows on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013, at 6 p.m. at the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church. A reception will follow at the Owen County Exhibit Building.  Invitations have been sent to out-of-town guests only.

  • They came in all shapes and sizes, and their place of importance in the lives of Owen countians and their communities can never be underestimated.

  • When I sent in the column last week, I wrote a note to News-Herald Staff Writer Molly Haines saying I wasn’t writing this week because nothing will have happened till the weekend was over. Well, I was wrong again.
    I took a notion to go car shopping on Wednesday. Ann said she could go with me Thursday morning. She was taking her car up early to be serviced at Toyota and could get off at 10 a.m. to accompany me to Bob Allen Chrysler to “just look.” Then I could take her back to Toyota to pick up her car. That sounded like a plan.

  • Alisha Kay Tuggle and James Earl Juett wish to announce their engagement and forthcoming marriage on Sept. 21, 2013 at Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church at 5:30 p.m. Alisha is the daughter of Missy and Ricky Mason of Long Ridge and the late Billy Tuggle of New Liberty. James is the son of James Juett of Hesler and Barb Juett of Owenton.  Alisha is a 2008 graduate of Owen County High School and is employed at Dental Care in Florence. James is a 2005 graduate of Owen County High School and is employed at Owen Electric.

  • We’re going in to the last week of summer and Labor Day weekend is upon us.
    I know the calendar says summer doesn’t end till Sept. 21, but the “be all, end all” of weather, Bill Meck, says Labor Day ... it’s Labor Day Weekend.
    He also said it would be hot, hot, hot this week. But then, he said that all week last week and I postponed John’s birthday supper for Friday till his real birthday Sunday afternoon so I wouldn’t have to heat up the kitchen cooking.
