  • Federal money helps bring equipment to Owen EMS

    The Owen County EMS recently received a Fire Fighters’ Assistance Grant  to better equip staff on daily runs.

    According to Owen County EMS Director Kevin Luther, with the FEMA grant of almost $70,000 the court was able to purchase the equipment by only spending $13,434.

  • Lady Wildcats walk-off with win over Lady Rebels

    Jensen Wainscott had three hits and scored three runs. Kenzie Criswell had a pair of hits and knocked in three runs. In the end, however, a late comeback was not enough as the Owen County lost its opener against Gallatin County last week.

    After the Lady Rebels rallied for three runs in the top of the seventh inning to tie the game, the Lady Wildcats pushed across a run in the bottom half to win the game 7-6.

    It was not the kind of start head coach Kevin Webster was hoping for.

    The Rebels then travelled to Woodford County over the weekend to play in the Lead-Off Classic. Owen County dropped a close one in the opener against Mercer County. Neither team had a problem scoring runs. In the end, however, it was the Titans who scored one more than the Rebels in their 12-11 win.

  • Georgia: On her mind

    Every year about this time, I come down with a case of March Madness. You see, I absolutely love the University of Kentucky men’s basketball team. If my Wildcats get knocked out of the running early for the championship, the salt goes out of living. If they do well in tournament play, euphoria lifts my flat feet until I fancy I could dance on rooftops.

  • Softball opener delayed

    If the weather would have cooperated, the Lady Rebels would have begun their season Monday at Western Hills but rain forced the cancelation of the season opener.
