  • Disappointed daughter calls for return of birdfeeder

    This letter comes to you in outrage and the very deepest disappointment.

    My mother, Paula Nye, passed away three years ago. She loved birds and had several birdfeeders strategically placed around her house so she could view them from every window of the room in which she lived out her illness.

  • Feds seek census workers for Owen

    Every 10 years, the government asks us to stand and be counted.

    The census is much more than a head count, it gives our country an opportunity to say who we are and ensure our voice is heard.

    Diane Reed, U.S. Census recruiter for Owen County, said our government is organized according to population. The count will affect everything from the number of representatives in Congress to deciding how the federal government will distribute $300 billion in funds to all the local, state and tribal governments.

  • Think before buying a pet

    Before buying your child or spouse a dog or cat for Christmas, please be aware that you can adopt a dog or cat from a shelter, Friends for Animals or Petsmart. They will also be spayed or neutered, wormed and up-to-date on shots. There are so many strays out there that need a home. Why purchase an animal form a breeder when there are cold, starving animals that will be destroyed or put to sleep if they can’t find a home.

  • Please leave a message

    What is your opinion of the news in Owen County?

    For decades, people have been able to react to stories and issues through the local newspaper’s Letter to the Editor section.

    From my standpoint, getting a letter from a reader is always exciting. It’s kinda like getting a credit-card bill after a long vacation. You’re never sure if you want to open it because it could either be great news or very, very bad news.

    Generally, I treat letters to the editor as an opportunity to learn something.

  • Graham organization files lawsuit in Owen

    Attorneys working on behalf of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association are suing the estate of a former Owen County resident.

    Former Owen County resident Glenn Works was appointed executor of the Jones’ estate and directed to oversee the disbursement of the estate.

    According to the suit brought by BGEA, Works was supposed to be paid $16,950 for his efforts.

  • Special message for Santa

    Dear Santa:

    Wherever you may be right now, I know that you are really busy at this time. So I will try not to take much of your time.

    I know this time of the year is the time for wishes to come true and miracles to happen. So that’s the reason for this letter.

    I am in desperate need for miracles and wishes to come true.,

  • Helping with HANDS

    What do you get when you combine: giggling babies, pumpkins, rubber ducks, good food, and lots of sunshine – a perfect fall celebration.

  • Autopsy fails to discover cause of Brown’s death

    An autopsy has failed to reveal the cause of death of a former Owen County resident whose remains were found in the trunk of her brother’s car earlier this year.

    Georgetown Police and the Scott County Coroner’s Office feared that because of the condition of Penny Brown’s body, it would be impossible to determine an exact cause of death.

  • The Golden Gobble Awards

    It seems like every time you turn on the television there is another awards show. There are the AMAs, the CMAs and the PCAs (not the Politically Correct Awards, but rather the People’s Choice Awards).

    In the spirit of award shows and Thanksgiving, I have come up with what I am calling the Golden Gobble Awards. These awards are for those individuals or groups who have acted like the biggest turkeys in 2008.

    May I have the envelopes please?
