  • 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.

  • The golf gods were evidently listening, because we had a very nice day to play to play Wednesday. It was cloudy but no rain nor wind. There were 28 ladies signed up to play and 28 showed up. That is a first. I think everybody had a very good day. I want to thank Gilbert and his staff for making our outing a success. All the ladies enjoyed the homemade pies. They always go out of their way to make us feel welcome.

  • After Fay Shelton suffered from a bout of rheumatic fever at the age of 5, her mother sold a cow to purchase a piano for her daughter. Thus began a life-long love of music, which included a career as a music teacher in the Owen County School System.

  • Beech Grove Baptist
    It was a beautiful Sunday coming to the Lord’s House. Bro. Steve delivered a powerful sermon from Malachi 1:6-14. It was diagnosing a sick spiritual life.
    The choir will be starting up again. If you would like to lend your voice to the praise of God, let Dave Jones know.
    The fall festival will be held Oct. 30 after the morning worship at the church. Bring your favorite soup or chili or sandwiches and enjoy the fellowship and games as we celebrate the time of harvest God has given us.

  • Last week’s weather was spectacular. It’s a good thing, I saw tobacco in the field on the way to Owenton last week and there was still a field full of tobacco on the stick in the big field across from the church Sunday morning. This is about as late as I have ever seen tobacco still in the field. Hopefully they got it hung before the rain started.
    I am hoping the rain holds off, too. This is the week our golf club goes to Wheatley for the “Away Play” day. It will be our last outing of this year. My clubs will go to the basement for the winter.
