    Another year is nearly in the books. When one looks back on 2012, there will be plenty of highlights to remember.
    The year began with the boys’ basketball team winning the Eighth Region All ‘A’ Classic. They went to Frankfort and won their first-round game before falling in the quarterfinals. As expected, the Owen County faithful came out in large numbers to support the Rebels during the two games in the All ‘A’ State Tournament.

  • Dealing with the business of death

    I’m getting a slow start this morning. The coffee hasn’t quite reached the brain yet. Last week was a very busy one for me. It seemed like I was at the computer or on the phone most of the week. People to notify, questions to answer for Pat or Rita and finding others who had moved and should be notified. If you have never had to cope with the “business of death,” it’s daunting the first time you have to do it.
    Things did fall into place and Johnny Bob’s memorial service was really nice.
