    “When our boys have crossed the ocean. There to die in No Man’s Land

  • County Clerk Corner: I’m losing sleep over districting

    What do you think about when you find yourself unable to sleep and looking up at the ceiling in the middle of the night?
    I sometimes think that during this time, I do my best thinking on issues.
    Since the beginning of the year, I have been thinking about changes that are going to have an impact on the Owen County Clerk’s office in 2013 and 2014.
    Questions such as:
    • Will the redistricting be done in 2013 or 2014?
    • Will we be able to get all the maps and description changes done and approved on time?

  • Kay’s Branch News: A new ‘dog house’ opens on the Branch

    The Super Bowl has come and gone for another year. I am not a great fan of football so I opted for “Downton Abby,” but I did catch the tail end of it. I got all the gory details from Fay.
    She and Jennifer taped the commercials so as not to miss Adam’s Coors commercial, but unless it was scheduled during the black out, he didn’t make the cut. Maybe it was meant for just the west coast. I’ll have to get Wanda to call him and clarify.
