  • Dog saves hunter the trouble

    I got my “project” started this week. I decided to build a narrow cabinet in the back hall to store dog food, soft drinks, assorted laundry and cleaning products and miscellaneous items and have a folding surface on top for clothes from the dryer.

  • Bill aims at reducing crime in Kentucky

    This has been perhaps the busiest week of the 2011 session and many pieces of important legislation addressing education, Kentucky’s criminal justice system, and government have been passed out of the House of Representatives.

    The Lady Rebels started last week against Walton-Verona. The Lady Bearcats came into Owenton fresh off an appearance in the All “A” State Tournament where they lost in the first round, 55-54, to Danville.

  • A legend is lost

    Who knew that the final lap would be his last lap?
    As Michael Waltrip crossed the finish line of the Daytona 500 Feb. 21, 2001, his brother Darrell in the broadcasting booth became both emotional and concerned all at the same time.
