  • Never rile an old mountaineer toting a double-barrel shotgun

    You know you’re getting old when you skip the health foods because you realize you need all the preservatives you can get.

    You know you’re getting old when, if you fall, you wonder what else you can do while you’re down there.

    You know you’re getting old when you come to realize time may be a great healer, but it’s a lousy beautician.

    I’m not sure who authored those lines, but I found them quite amusing. They also got me thinking about what the Bible says about the aging process.

  • Road closure will only affect one city block of Owenton

    BY CASEY ELLIS
    Owen County Judge-Executive

    As we look forward to nicer weather, school being out for the summer and summer activities, I wanted to inform the citizens of Owen County about the road closure scheduled for June 1-30.

    There seems to be some confusion around this subject. The reality is one city block will be closed. That block is from the traffic light at East Adair to the Seminary Street traffic light (and just to the edge of the People’s Bank drive through).

  • Owen's confederate soldiers faced large battles, capture

    With dogged and unflinching determination they met the enemy, and many gave their lives for a cause in which they believed.

    A great tragedy unfolded when the enemy was a member of a soldier’s own family, and during the Civil War, this scenario was played out between more Kentuckians than any other people of the United States.

    At last…a champion
    June 1, 2011 | 5 years ago

    It seemed like it was never going to happen. Instead, the final chapter of Danielle Hoop’s illustrious high school career had a very happy ending.

    In the last race she would ever run in high school, Hoop won the state championship in the 800-meter run. She won it in thrilling fashion as she edged out Ann Eason from Sayre School. The race was so close that officials had to get together to determine that Hoop won by just .005 seconds.
