  • Letter to the editor: Quilt picture sparks memories of mother

    It was such a joy to open The News-Herald last week and see one of Mom’s quilts. A picture was taken at the library showing her quilt hanging on the wall. We, her children, donated the “Flower Garden Quilt” to the library in 1990 in honor of her 75th birthday. She pieced quilts for so many people. She was Mrs. Clifton, Gertrude, Gertie – she had several names – and was loved by all. I hope her memory never fades.

  • Letter to the editor: Owen sheltered from storms

    Last week, a great storm hit Louisville, as you know. Comparatively, Owen County had very little damage. We have often been “sheltered,” when areas around us have suffered severely. It makes me doubly glad that Owen countians the sale of “demon alcohol,” last month. God is in charge of the storms.
    But, now another storm seems to be brewing. Reportedly, the British rioters plan a “Day of Rage,” Sept. 17, in New York City, according to Crosstalk Radio. They hope to ignite riots across America.

  • Letter to the editor: Yard sale helps make lasting friends

    My husband and I have just completed our seventh year of traveling to Owenton from our home state of Wisconsin, to set up and sell antiques and collectibles on the Hwy. 127 yard sale.  
    We want everyone to know just how much we love coming down each year to your beautiful state and reconnecting with our Kentucky “family” in Owen and Gallatin counties.  

  • Letter to the editor: Congratulations to girls golf team

    On Aug. 23, the Lady Rebels posted the third consecutive 8th Region all “A” championship.
    Lead by Kennedi Dermon with a low round of 77, followed by Shelby Power (81), Aly Minch (82), Lynsey Farrar (84), and Julie Spaulding (94), the team posted a winning score of 324.  They will be representing the Eighth region at the State All “A” in Paducah Sept. 10.
    Their history over the past three years has been outstanding.

  • Letter to the editor: Charities should worry less about stickers

    I worked the Owen County booth on the first day of this year’s Kentucky State Fair.
    Like many other booths, we had a fish bowl for a gift drawing.
    I was fascinated to see the majority of people who took an entry card fill out the requested information not with a pen or pencil but a return-address sticker sent to them by a service organization soliciting donations.

  • Letter to the editor: Search-dog team appreciates support

    The Grand Paws Search Dog Team was honored July 13 by being co-recipients of the Owen Countian of the Year Award.
    It has been an honor to  serve Owen County for the past 12 years in a lot of different capacities. Our  members consist of EMTs, farmers, and office workers, but all are volunteers.
    GPSDA members are dedicated to providing well- trained dogs to search for missing individuals in Owen County and surrounding counties.

  • Letter to the editor: Love sparked 'no' vote

    I thank God that we still have the freedom to vote in America. It is a privilege not shared by many countries whereby the people’s voice can be heard. Many Owen County voters exercised that privilege on Tuesday, July 26, to speak out on an issue that could profoundly affect our county and residents for years to come. I, for one, am very glad they did.

  • Letter to the editor: A special 100th birthday message to Bill Livers

    Howdy Livers:
    I want you to know that I did not forget your cool 100th birthday.
    As long as I can remember, you were going to live to be “a cool 100.”
    Livers, you’ve been gone 23 years and the ones who knew and loved you still misses you. Every so often someone will say, “Big Jim, tell me a Bill Livers story.”
