  • Dog saves hunter the trouble

    I got my “project” started this week. I decided to build a narrow cabinet in the back hall to store dog food, soft drinks, assorted laundry and cleaning products and miscellaneous items and have a folding surface on top for clothes from the dryer.

  • Bill aims at reducing crime in Kentucky

    This has been perhaps the busiest week of the 2011 session and many pieces of important legislation addressing education, Kentucky’s criminal justice system, and government have been passed out of the House of Representatives.
    One of the most highly publicized bills that cleared the House this week is the result of six months of work, research, and collaboration between legislators, judges, substance abuse counselors, hospitals, jailers, administration officials and others.

  • Landscape changes forever

    For 80 years it served Owen County — a notable amount of time to service a community. In a matter of a few seconds it was gone, but memories of days when it was a vital part of the Gratz scenery live on in the hearts and minds of local residents

  • Ladies looking ahead

    It seems to all be coming together.
    The Owen County Lady Rebels kept right on rolling last week as they defeated two more opponents. In fact, they made it look easy.
    The Lady Rebels started last week against Walton-Verona. The Lady Bearcats came into Owenton fresh off an appearance in the All “A” State Tournament where they lost in the first round, 55-54, to Danville.

  • Rebels hope to get on roll

    A week that began well for the Owen County Rebels quickly went “South.”
    The Rebels opened up last week by traveling to North Oldham. After falling behind early to the Mustangs, the team rallied to pick up the 57-51 victory. Owen County trailed 16-7 after the first quarter but turned things around in the second to cut the deficit to 23-21 at halftime.

  • A legend is lost

    Who knew that the final lap would be his last lap?
    As Michael Waltrip crossed the finish line of the Daytona 500 Feb. 21, 2001, his brother Darrell in the broadcasting booth became both emotional and concerned all at the same time.
    The emotion came from watching his little brother claim the checkered flag. The concern was for his racing brother who just seconds earlier had slammed into the wall on Turn 4.

  • We’re all in this together

    Every Sunday afternoon in Placentia, Calif., the Watson family gathers for Family Day.
    Although informal — most every Watson comes either barefoot or wearing flip flops — it has its own set of rules and rituals.
    According to Jennifer (Watson) Fiamengo, the rules mainly pertain to the food served. If they grill hamburgers or hot dogs, her mother MUST make her family-famous macaroni salad. If they have Mexican food, her mother must make seven-layer dip.

  • Salem Baptist

    Sunday, we had a wonderful crowd on such a wonderful Lord’s day.
    Special thanks to our music guests, Mr. and Mrs. Jack and Lucy Parker, and Mary Marlow.
    Bro. Jared’s message was “Being Able to Say I Love You,” based on  John 3:16-17 and Matthew 3:13-17.
