  • Cemetery at Squiresville set to receive makeover from OCES students

    Off the beaten path may be the up and coming way to gather and protect family histories in Owen County.
    While many family histories can be found in old books or the internet, many others can be found in family cemeteries. These cemeteries hold years of family decedents that can help draw a bigger and better family tree for the remaining members of their family.
    As family cemeteries grow older, many are left to nature and become overgrown or destroyed.

  • District officials pleased with state report card

    Students are no longer the only ones receiving report cards this year. As more information is collected from the previous school year, school districts will soon be reviewing their academic standing in district-wide report cards.
    Nearly a decade ago, the Kentucky Department of Education created the school report card, a process that helps schools revise their academic standards throughout the year. This report card also lists items like career readiness and attendance for each school and school district.

  • Allegations regarding weapon at MBMS false

    Owen County School Superintendent Rob Stafford said allegations that a Maurice Bowling Middle School student came to school with a knife or gun Friday are “completely unsubstantiated.”
    MBMS staff received the allegations around 3 p.m., just before buses began loading to transport students home, Stafford said.
    The late nature of the report caused some delay for students boarding their respective buses, which led to “a massive amount of rumors,” Stafford said.
