  • More than a game

    Last week the Maurice Bowling Middle School volleyball team played a match against Gallatin County.
    While the match may have looked similar in many ways to every other match they have played this season, it was very different. Monday night’s match was not as much about what took place on the court, but rather about those who were there to watch – including one very special coach.

  • Owen County Montessori School officially opens

    Co-founders Emily Lofald and Ellie Petzinger welcomed their six registered students to the first day of school at Owen County Montessori on U.S. 127, south of Owenton. The initial group of students are in the 3- to 5-year old program and, for the first six weeks will be in the “phase in” stage, where they learn how to be courteous to others while in a classroom setting.

  • Committee working to form local alumni association

    A group of Owen County High School graduates have formed a steering committee which is working diligently to organize an alumni association for the school.  The idea was presented at a class reunion last year, and a Facebook group page was created in May of this year for graduates of OCHS that were interested in forming an alumni association.  The group page now has over 1100 members, and membership is growing weekly.

  • Local love stories have often involved sacrifice

    Romeo and Juliet, Cleopatra and Marc Anthony, Robin Hood and Lady Marion, Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler. Love stories, some historic, others fictional, have always ignited the imagination, captured the heart and survived the test of time.

    Family love stories have entertained Owen countians for generations. Some create poignant memories of long ago, while others elicit skepticism at the thought of Papaw in the role of Romeo.
