  • Be ready for earthquake drill Thursday

    Owen County Emergency Management and other official preparedness organizations all agree that “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” is the appropriate action to reduce injury and death during earthquakes.
    The Great ShakeOut earthquake drill (www.shakeout.org) is a great opportunity to practice how to protect ourselves during earthquakes.
    You cannot tell from the initial shaking if an earthquake will stop suddenly or become intense so always Drop, Cover, and Hold On immediately.
    DROP to the ground (before the earthquake drops you!)

    The Owenton City Council has approved the new tax rates for the next year.
    The second reading of the ordinance to set the rates was held Tuesday night.

  • Kay’s Branch News: A column fan checks in on Kay’s Branch

    This has been a slow week. I needed one after the departure of my cousins. They arrived back in Missouri safely. I have spent the week changing beds and doing laundry, and sitting in my chair in the sunroom with Dobbs. We were both exhausted.
    I did get to Frankfort on Wednesday to empty the recyclables. My soft drink can was overflowing. Friday was Hand and Foot day. We played at Barbara Hecker’s house this month. That was a lot of fun. I am back into my routine this week.

  • Rebels win a wild one

    The start of Friday’s game was not great but for fans of the Owen County High School Rebels football team, the finish was fantastic.
    After trailing 19-6 in the second quarter, the Rebels’ offense came to life and beat Carroll County on Friday night in Carrollton, 43-39.
     It was the Owen County football team’s first win of the season.
    The Rebels opened the scoring late in the opening quarter when Jace Bruener raced 53 yards for a score to make the score 6-0.
