  • Kay's Branch News: Christmas means family down on the Branch

    I had a very good Christmas. The week preceding was kind of hectic but that’s to be expected. I had gone to Frankfort Tuesday to do the shopping and get gas, so I would have the rest of the week to stay at home and do the last-minute wrapping, make candy and clean.
    It wasn’t to be.
    June Stokley called Tuesday night to ask if I could play dominos on Wednesday. Now I should have said no but one must have their priorities straight. So I went to Garden Point to play dominos on Wednesday.

  • News-Herald Year in Review

    This year has been one for the records.
    Owen County, still struggling with a weak economy, has seen its sports teams shine as never before and become a source of immense pride for nearly everyone.
    Owen countains faced new challenges and although the winds of change have blown through the community,  the majority preferred to honor traditional and stay the course.
    In the past year, we have seen county divide over issues but still willing to come together in the hour of need or for the betterment of the community.

  • No growing pains

    Many kids play basketball but not all of them are basketball players.
    The Maurice Bowling Middle School eighth-grade Rebels are basketball players and they are good.
    The team finished the season with a perfect record and it is not the first time. In fact, the team that has been playing together since they were in the third grade was also perfect last year as seventh graders.
    In fact, the last time they lost a regular season game was in the fourth grade.

  • Perfect ladies

    It’s hard to find much wrong with the Owen County High School Lady Rebels at this point in the season.
    They are 7-0 and have won those games by an average margin of 33 points. That is why when they win by just 18 points against a district rival, it seems strange.
    Owen County defeated Henry County 45-27 Friday night in Owenton but when the game ended everyone seemed a little flat.
    After jumping out to an early lead in the first quarter, the Lady Wildcats were able to get back into the game and close the gap to 11-10 in the second quarter.

  • Rebels rout rivals

    Rebels rout rivals
    Things didn’t get off to a good start last week.
    During the Owen County High School Rebels’ final practice last Monday before taking on Gallatin County, big man Sawyer Williams was injured.
    To make matters worse, during the junior varsity game Dec. 13,  Collin Trammel was injured.
    That is when the Runnin’ Rebels became the resilient Rebels.
