  • Coming down

    The “purple” house at 125 East Perry St. will finally come down after several years of debate.
    According to records from the Owen County Historical Society, the house was built in 1890. It has been vacant for the past eight years.
    Due to a number of complaints over the years about the deteriorating condition of the house, the City of Owenton put a lien against the property in November 2009. The owners now owe the city more than $100,000.

  • Don’t take it so personally

    Whatever happened to the phrase, it’s just a game?
    My son and I watched Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals the other night. Now I realize we may have been part of a small group of people from Owen County watching the game, but I don’t want to talk about the action on the ice but rather what took place following the game.

  • Georgia on her mind: Fortunately, I didn’t raise any sociopaths

    After reading a parenting expert’s column in the newspaper that makes it sound so easy, followed by phone calls from my daughters who make it sound so hard, I realized, in retrospect, that I was a mess of a mother. I plucked tacky plastic Halloween costumes off the rack at Kmart for my children. Fed them un-organic anything. Dressed them in environmentally destructive polyester because it didn’t need ironing – well, it’s a miracle my kids didn’t turn out to be sociopaths.
