  • All good things ...

    All good things must come to an end.
    The magic carpet ride that was the 2010-2011 basketball season came to an end Friday night in Warsaw. Anderson County edged Owen County, 47-44, in the Eighth Region Semifinals. The loss ended the season for the Lady Rebels.

  • Owen emergency official urges preparedness

    Rick Morgan, Owen County EM director,  reminds Owen County residents that Kentucky is declaring March 2011 as Severe Storms Awareness Month, urging all Kentuckians to be prepared for severe weather.
