  • Letter to the Editor: Arts council appreciates support from public

    The members of the Owen County Arts Council would like to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to all those who helped make our Sweet Owen Days fund-raiser a success.

    We’d especially like to thank the artists who donated items for this raffle — without whose generosity we could not have succeeded.

    Your interest and support mean so much and is a source of great encouragement.

    Thanks again,

    The Owen County Arts Council

  • Letter to the Editor: Church made the tough but correct choice

    This is in response to Teresa Biagi’s letter to the editor last week. First of all, I would like to say I am writing this as an individual and not as a representative of First Baptist Church. I am a proud and active member of Owenton First Baptist and it was the collective membership of the church that made the decision to take down the Morgan house as opposed to spending a great deal of money to restore the building. I love historical homes. I grew up in one on North Adams Street and hated to see the Morgan house’s life come to an end.

  • GRACE NOTES: Rediscovering Church

    Lately I’ve been fascinated by stories of people who grew up in church and now have abandoned the denominations of their youth, and sometimes church altogether.

    In a very funny memoir, “Mennonite in a Little Black Dress,” Rhoda Janzen writes about having to wear frumpy skirts, granny panties and doilies on her head and eating lots of potatoes.

  • Grace Notes: Lessons on my knees

    As I was on my knees one Saturday afternoon, I had an epiphany.

    Lest you think I was on my knees praying, I wasn’t, although Lord knows I should have been. And it wasn’t so much an epiphany as it was a random thought.

  • Let's have a good, clean fight

    In the next few weeks, the candidates for several different offices in Owen County will hit the streets and try to convince their neighbors that they are the best person for the job.

  • Letter to the Editor: Marcum’s impact goes beyond the field

    In light of recent events, I felt compelled to personally and publically thank Mr. Tim Marcum for his continuing service to Owen County schools, Owen County athletics and Owen County students.

  • Is life after death for cream of mushroom soup?

    The other day, I was throwing together a hash-brown potato casserole at the last minute for a potluck family reunion when I realized the recipe called for a can of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup, an item I’d forgotten to pick up on my run to the grocery store. But not to worry, I thought.

  • Mother finds comfort and healing at home

    In 2006, we were told by doctors in another hospital that our mother would die in the next few days.

    The reason I am sharing these thoughts with you is I was approached by someone who wanted more information on the home dialysis and I feel there are more people out there who one day may need to think about going this way instead of going to a clinic and going through a more aggressive treatment.

    Instead of doing it daily, you do it every two to three days and it is more aggressive.
