  • 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?

  • Past president questions Chamber decision

    Editor:
    I was surprised to learn that Carrollton Utilities was named as Owen County Chamber of Commerce’s Business of the Year.  
    As a past president of the Chamber and a small business owner myself, I know first hand that there are many businesses within our community that are deserving of such an honor. These are the businesses that donate their money, time and support to Owen County school activities, non-profit groups and other organizations.

  • Letter to the editor: Satterwhite shamble a success

    On April 11 we came together for the 16th annual Charlie Satterwhite Memorial Golf Shamble at Fairway Golf Course in Wheatley. I have to say, God and Judge Satterwhite gave us the best weather we have ever had in the history of our tournament.
    As always, our day of supporting the Owen County Senior Citizens’ Activity Fund and the Satterwhite Foundation would not be successful without the businesses and individuals who helped support this event, either by sponsoring a hole, donating a door prize or giving of their time to help us in some form.

  • A moment with "Big Jim" will never be forgotten

    I  met Jim Ware only one time.
    The occasion was an interview with Jim for information about his uncle Bill Livers. Yet my intended short visit stretched to  over an hour as I was captivated by “Big Jim’s” spell bounding talent as a  storyteller. He regaled me with colorful tales of not only his uncle, but of his own life growing up in Owen County.
    Belying his illness, Jim’s booming voice seemed to fill the room and his laughter was contagious as it tumbled from within him in loud delightful guffawing.

    Not on ballot, but not out of picture
    Editor:

    I am being asked why my name is not on the ballot for Owenton City Council. I was in the hospital Aug. 1-21 and was unable to file for this office.
    I deeply regret not having the opportunity to represent you. It has been a great honor to be on the city council. You have been a wonderful group to represent and I thank you for the help and support you have given me.
