  • Resolve to become a better neighbor in 2016

    The new year is off in a long run.

    I watched the ball drop along with Wanda and Ray, not in the same house, but you know what I mean.

    It was less than thrilling, so I went to bed and didn’t start my new year till 8:20 the next morning. The sun was out. That is news worthy because it hadn’t shown for over a week.

  • Rebels enter 2016 undefeated in district play

    It was business as usual last Tuesday night for the Owen County Rebels.

    The last time the Rebels lost a game within the 31st District was on January 27, 2014. Ironically, that loss came in Eminence. It was not to the Warriors, but rather to Carroll County in the championship game of the 8th Region All ‘A’ Classic.

  • Lady Rebels finish third in holiday tournament

    The Owen County Lady Rebels did not have much time for holiday returns following Christmas. Just days after Christmas, the team traveled to Frankfort to take part in the Capital City Holiday Classic on Dec. 29 and 30.

    On Tuesday the team took on South Oldham in the first game of the tournament. Owen County led 30-22 at the half on their way to a 57-45 win over the Lady Dragons. The win was the first for Owen County over South Oldham since Dec. 29, 2009 when they won 42-32 at Western Hills.

  • It's in the Bible: Big babies need to grow up

    BY ROGER ALFORD

    A redneck making his first skydive was falling through the air, unable to get his parachute to open. Try as he might, it wasn’t budging. In a panic, he yelled to a fellow who was flying up toward him: “Hey buddy, do do you know anything about parachutes?”

    “No,” the fellow responded. “Do you know anything about propane stoves?”

  • Don’t put a period where God has put a comma

    The last time we visited the church we like in Tampa, the pastor’s message was titled, “Let’s Eat Grandma — the Importance of Punctuation.”

    My first reaction was, “Hmmm. Punctuation? Really?”

    He spoke about commas.

    I’m a word person and I know a little bit about grammar and punctuation, although not much. And commas always throw me off.
