    Lisa Stewart,  William’s mother and Braydon’s grandmother, arranged for a nice funeral service and burial for her babies and has only recently been able to pay off those expenses.

  • Family with Owen ties safe from crisis in Japan

    Well, I made it through another basketball-filled weekend. In case someone out there was in a cave someplace and hasn’t heard, the University of Kentucky beat West Virginia. So we march on to next weekend. This time we will face Ohio State. I am filling my head with mundane things so I won’t dwell on it.
    Gardening is something to think about. I have seen several plots that have been plowed.

  • Young Rebels eye regional tourney berth

    Experience is important. Even if how you come by it is difficult.
    The Owen County High School baseball team took some lumps in 2010. The team finished with just four wins last year and is hoping that going through that experience will only make them stronger in 2011.
    The team lost only three seniors from last year’s squad.
    Byron Robertson, Brody Layton and Kyle Kelly graduated meaning that many of those coming back this year have valuable experience. This year’s roster does not include a single senior.

     Tim Marcum and the Lady Rebels are hoping to build off a strong season in 2010.
    The team is coming off a 19-win season a year ago that saw them defeat two rivals and advance to the Eighth Region Tournament for the sixth year in a row. The two big wins came over Henry County and Walton-Verona.
