Christmas 2010 is over, in fact 2010 is almost over.
It’s been a good year, if you’ve lived through it without accident, illness, or financial loss. When you get to my age, just to have lived through is a blessing.
The Lady Rebels could not have asked for a better start to district play. After three games against 31st District opponents, Owen County has yet to suffer defeat. In fact they have won all three games by double digits.
The team knocked off Carroll County two weeks ago to begin district play. They then traveled to Gallatin County and Henry County last week and continued their winning ways.
What started out as a promising week for Owen County ended in disappointment.
The Rebels began last week with a tough, hard-fought win at Gallatin County before closing out the week with a loss at Henry County Friday.
The team headed into the game at Gallatin County looking to erase a pair of losing streaks. The Wildcats were riding a three-game winning streak over the Rebels and Owen County had not won in Warsaw since December 2006.
Owen County ended both streaks with a 57-53 victory.

This has been a busy week for me. I’m sure it has for most of my readers too, with Christmas just a week away.
I got the last of the decorating done on Monday. Anything that is not covered with red, green and gold by now will just have to wait till next year. Tuesday was banking day, a trip to the library and bridge. Mary Ann Cobb had it this time and it was our Christmas party.
The sun was shining and we had a very nice afternoon, but this will be our last afternoon till March.
