  • Kay’s Branch News: Choosing golf, yard sales or AC

    I was pleasantly surprised to find my neighbor and friend John Harrod featured in the “Kentucky Living” magazine this month. It was a very nice article.
    My only negative comment was that they said he lived in Owenton, and he doesn’t even live close to Owenton. He lives on Kay’s Branch just across from my John’s house and has lived there for years. The only connection he has with Owenton is the rural mail carrier that drops off his mail.

  • Owen County Historical Society News: Farmer finds oily surprise on property

    With great anticipation, the Owen County farming community has always looked forward to summer with its cornucopia of fresh vegetables nurtured in Kentucky soil; although, much of the soil in this area is better suited for a potter’s wheel.

  • Bethany school alum unite to remember

    The number of persons attending the Bethany school reunion continues to be smaller, but the enthusiasm remains upbeat.
    In spite of the 90-plus temperature and interstate repair, 18 friends met for lunch and fellowship July 23 at Noble’s Restaurant near Corinth. Some sat in traffic or drove the long way around to attend.
    A former student/teacher, the late Geraldine Hudson Green, had compiled a list of graduates/teachers of Bethany. Remembering faces to put with the names was interesting.
