  • Anger is growing across the country

    First, my condolences to the families of those dead and injured in the Arizona shooting.
    The mean-spiritedness in this country is worse than I’ve ever seen in my lifetime (I’m 72) especially in the political arena.
    We need to question where the anger is coming from and what can be done to change it.
    I’ve always felt that America would have to endure another revolution and didn’t think I would live to see it, but I might be wrong. My only regret is that I might be too old to be a part of it.

  • Owen ambulance and hospital staff are the best around

    On Dec. 8, 2010, my son found me passed out on my living room floor.
    He immediately called the Owen County Life Squad who took excellent care of me (thank you, Brian and Charles) and dispatched for a helicopter to transport me to Lexington.
    They then transported me to the New Horizons Medical Center Emergency Room.

  • Letter to the editor: Special thanks to hard-working school custodial staff

    We are writing this letter to publicly thank the custodial staff of the Owen County School District for their dedication and faithful service to our schools and this community.
    On Jan. 3,  the new Maurice Bowling Middle School opened to serve students. This was due to a lot of effort from many people, but this could not have happened without the custodial staff of this district.
