  • Owen County teams get back on home track

    The Owen County track team did something last week they had not done for a long time. The teams hosted the Owen County All-Comers Meet. The track was refurbished during the past year, which allowed the Owen teams to host a meet this year. The new surface on the track also allowed Owen County to host the regional track meet yesterday.
    Three other schools were represented last week for the first meet. The Lady Rebels took on Trimble County, Williamstown and Frankfort. Several individuals put in solid performances.

    I really enjoyed the warm days last week. I got the mowing finished and finally got to play golf.
    I know a lot of people got some gardening done. Ann and Tutt got their tomatoes planted, and Wanda helped Charlie a little in his garden. She said this was the latest he’d every gotten things in the ground.
