    “The Sisters Act” Relay For Life team would like to thank you so much for supporting our annual Relay for Life Fish Fry event. It was a great turnout for the weather and a huge success due to the support of our great community.

    Each year we have asked Sisterly Touch, Tricky Ricky, and the Owen County Historical Society to help and they have always stepped up without any hesitation. Not only do they donate their time they donate their hearts to this special event.

    Editor:

    While there are legitimate concerns about expanding and inefficient government, little is heard about the good work performed by government employees. Last week, after the area received 2 inches of rain in a short period, employees of the state highway department cleared Highway 368 of driveway washout and cleaned culverts and drainage ditches. This work was performed efficiently and professionally. During this same week, state and local emergency personnel spent many hours in the recovery efforts of a drowning victim in Indian Creek.

  • Letter to the editor | Dog napping not just in Gallatin Co.

    Editor:

    The News-Herald said there were dogs missing in Gallatin County.

    Well, they are in Owen County too.

    I, Bert Wooten, had a dog taken from me in front of the county barn. A friend named Walker on Highway 22 East had one taken off the chain at his place. This needs to stop. The dogs had name plates on them.

  • Letters to the Editor | Walker took pride in cleaning position

    Editor:

    “Unfortunately as elected officials we are forced to make tough decisions. This is one of the toughest ...” This statement was made by our Judge/Executive, Casey Ellis, in response to eliminating the cleaning position filled by Regina Walker. If it was such a tough decision why did he not choose to cut his own salary or office budget?
