  • Karsner airplane hangar pending demolition

    For more than 70 years a four-plane airplane hangar near Monterey has carried a message that one local family calls a “shining inspiration.”

  • Making a rock star: OCHS grad., musician returns from first statewide tour

    When I grow up, I want to be a rockstar.
    Patrick Brumback actually wanted to work at Disney’s Pixar when he was growing up, but as it turns out, being a rockstar isn’t too far out of his reach.
    He grew up in Owen County around a family that played music, which fostered a later interest to be a musician.
    “One of my earliest memories is me slapping the strings of my uncle’s electric guitar. I was just making ugly noise but looking back it makes sense,” Brumback said.

  • A fond farewell: Cook follows calling to serve military families

    They say that if you find a job you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. They also say choose a major you love and you’ll never work a day in your life because that field probably isn’t hiring.
    Well, I don’t know who “they” are, but I say, follow the calling of God and you’ll always know you’re where you’re supposed to be exactly when you’re supposed to be there.

  • Entertaining tales of Owen County river men abound

    They were passed down through families, and their content ran from exhilarating to tragic, from rousingly humorous to almost unbelievable.
    They were the stories of life on the fire-belching mammoths that ruled the Kentucky River for over 100 years, and they have entertained Kentuckians for generations.
