  • Kay's Branch News | Golf tournament tops weather this week

    Snow! We have another skiff of snow on the ground as I write this Monday morning. This is April; the trees are blooming, Keeneland is running. This is not snow time, but this is Kentucky. Anything can happen weather-wise. The ground was just drying up enough for some of us to get out and mow the yard. Ray got his done, and Fay said she mowed too, but the wind was too cold for me, and I have had skiffs of snow every morning, so I continue to sit and watch TV and hope it will be better tomorrow.

  • Rose shares ancient Owen Co. artifacts with society

    Like many 10 year olds the young Owen countian spent much of his spare time hunting squirrels. One day while hunting these wily little tree climbers, the boy ducked under a tree branch, and as he cast his eyes to the ground, he spied a perfectly formed arrowhead. That discovery of a single ancient artifact set Owen countian Bobby Rose on the path of a life-long journey into the world of stone points, axes and pipes and fueled his determination to preserve these ancient treasures of the past.

  • Kay's Branch News | Capital Plaza Tower implosion creates excitement locally

    This has been a good week for me. I got to play bridge Tuesday. The sun was shining, and I could see spring just around the corner — then it snowed on Wednesday and burst my bubble. There was a good crowd at church Sunday. The new furnace was doing its job, and everybody was glad to be back in their pews.
    Fay said attendance was good at her church too. She has been staying with her sister Sue some this week. She is bedfast now. Fay has been doing some cooking for her and helping the nurse that looks after her. Their family needs your prayers.

  • Historical Society News | Daniel Boone's nephew original deacon at Harmony Baptist

    The little pedal organ, poised as if ready to share a melodious hymn,  stands in a small niche in the parlor of the Owen County Historical Society Museum. Many years ago its keys, now yellowed with age, rejoiced at the touch of the small fingers gliding up and down its keyboard.
    In the early 1900s, this unique little gospel organ traveled in the buggy of Owen County evangelist John Allie Lee. Reverend Lee’s daughter, Snowdye, accompanied her father and played hymns calling the faithful to worship.
