  • Kay’s Branch News: It’s a good time to visit sunshine state

    I guess Fay and Bruce had already gone to the barn this morning when I called. It’s not a bad morning to be out. It’s a balmy 48 degrees this morning. This elevator weather has finally gotten me. I started sneezing Saturday and by the time I got home from church I sounded like I had gotten into the sneezing powder. By evening I had a full-blown cold. I have already cancelled dominos for this week. I don’t think I shall be ready for people in close contact by Wednesday.

  • ‘A’ history-making night

    The Owen County Rebels entered the Eighth Region All ‘A’ Classic last week with a chance to make history. No other Rebel team had ever won back-to-back titles.
    Owen County won the tournament in 1996 and also in 2003 but were not able to duplicate the feat the following season. In fact, in 2004 the Rebels lost in the first round.
    Saturday night at Williamstown, the Rebels punched their ticket back to Frankfort with a 69-47 win over Walton-Verona in the championship game.

    • The tournament begins Thursday morning with opening-round games. The quarterfinals will be held on Friday with the semifinals on Saturday night. The championship game will be played on Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. All games will be played at the Frankfort Convention Center.
    • The Eighth Region representative has reached the quarterfinals in four of the past six years. The last time a team from the Eighth Region went to the semifinals was Walton-Verona in 2004.

  • Lady Rebels’ ‘new’ season begins with win

    Instead of hanging their heads following their disappointing loss in the Eighth Region All ‘A’ Classic semifinals, the Owen County Lady Rebels decided to change their perspective.
    “We’re cleaning the slate,” Owen County High School Head Girls Basketball Coach Bob Osborne said. “Starting today, this is a new season.”
    The Lady Rebels began the new season with a victory last Thursday night at home.
    The 46-37 win over Franklin County avenged an earlier loss this season to the Lady Flyers in Frankfort.
