    Although none of the five Owen County players made the cut, the experience was quite valuable, according to their coach.

    Owen County High School was 6-0 and coming off its biggest win of the season.
    Carroll County on homecoming was looming next and then a game at Gallatin County.

    If the Rebels were ever going to look past an opponent, it was Friday night.
    No big deal.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Hoping for one final round

    Last week’s weather was spectacular. It’s a good thing, I saw tobacco in the field on the way to Owenton last week and there was still a field full of tobacco on the stick in the big field across from the church Sunday morning. This is about as late as I have ever seen tobacco still in the field. Hopefully they got it hung before the rain started.
    I am hoping the rain holds off, too. This is the week our golf club goes to Wheatley for the “Away Play” day. It will be our last outing of this year. My clubs will go to the basement for the winter.
