  • Letter to the editor: Election should rebuff corporate greed

    I hope that four to five years from now, we’re on our way to a strong recovery, based on the fact that a record number of voters embraced their rights and made an informed decision at the voting booth in 2010.  

    There couldn’t be a more important election than this one.

    The corporate power behind many of the candidates is not out of generosity, but out of greed and the need for control.

  • Monterey News By Dana Burke

    Theresa recently called to tell me Florence has been undergoing some tests lately. Seems a few weeks ago they had to admit her into the Owenton hospital because she had some fluid around her heart. Her doctor had scheduled her for a heart catheter but she postponed it because she, Sheila, Vickie (their cousin) and Nancy Ballinger had planned a girls’ antiquing trip. Upon returning from this trip, Theresa and Sheila took Florence to Central Baptist to have the heart catheter done. They ended up keeping her overnight where they had to put in a couple of stints.

  • Water works

    Following two years of construction at the Owen-Franklin County line, residents had the opportunity to take a peek into the newly opened Kentucky American Water treatment plant Friday.

    Those who attended were given the chance to take a guided tour of the treatment plant and meet with KAW employees during the open house.

    The new treatment has been named Kentucky River Station II at Hardin’s Landing and is located near Monterey on the Kentucky River.

    The plant obtained its name after the Hardin family, who owns property just upstream from the site.
