  • ‘Service Above Self’ for some OCHS students

    “Service Above Self” is a motto many Owenton Rotarians have learned well and now Owen County High School students are getting the same lesson with the creation of the Interact Club.
    Interact Club is an independent club based on the Rotary Club, which focuses on the motto of “Service Above Self.” While the Interact Club does focus on that same motto, it also includes a much more youth-focused mentality.

  • A tornado is a tough way to get a death-clean done

    Whenever her adult children got on her nerves, my friend Pat would threaten never to clean out another closet. She’d just leave them to deal with her lifetime of clutter after she was gone, she said, and see how they’d like that!

  • Branch residents plan home improvements, search for ‘sheds’

    More snow this morning. I am so ready for spring. I am starting to bark I’ve been in my house for so long. Dobbs is the only one I see. I did get to church yesterday, which was good. Being with other human beings for a couple of hours saved both my religion and my sanity.
