  • Letter to the editor: Help make Easter special for elderly and youth

    Once again Owenton Manor residents will host the annual community Easter egg hunt on April 9.
    The rain date will be for the following Saturday. Each year our residents stuff plastic eggs with candy and surprises for children 12-and-under to find. We need your help in providing enough candy to fill the eggs.
    You can contact us or leave your donation of candy, prizes of anything at the activity department. We want to thank you for your support.

  • Letter to the editor: People should unite against wet vote

    I would like to express my opinion about making Owen County a wet county.
    I think we need to put our trust in God to meet our needs and not depend of the sale of liquor to bring in more revenue.
    The sale of liquor only causes more problems where it is sold or consumed.
    Do you want saloons up and down Main Street to ruin our town?
    Why spend thousands of dollars to get it on the ballot?
    Let’s stand united and stop it before it goes any further. We need to think about our children so we can bring them up in a more respectable environment.

  • Technology continues to change county clerk’s office

    The routine world of regulations, laws, and practices, accompanied by legislation, court decisions and  agreements’ have led to changes in the Owen County Clerk’s Office.

  • Letter to the Editor: More alcohol won’t help Owen County

    Many are concerned about the future of Owen County, the education of our children, and the hope of local jobs when they grow up — and at the same time – holding to our rural roots.
    In trying to do this, there needs to be a tax-base and industry to provide money and opportunity for all this to happen. Many different people worked to get the gas line to the industrial park, don’t give up on that.

  • Letter to the Editor: What are we the people going to do?

    The Pledge of Allegiance to the United States’ flag is made “to the republic for which it stands.”
    That flag represents a republic, not a democracy, not a dictatorship, and certainly not a world intrusive world empire which we have become. Progressive, Marxism (highly controlling) governments offer us nothing but hunger, torture, oppression, death and tyranny. The new world order, so highly praised by Obama, has made our nation of the sheep or as USSR Joe Stalin put it “useful idiots.”

  • Newspapers bring classrooms alive

    At newspapers and schools across the country this week, a special relationship is being celebrated.

  • House calls for end to furloughs

    Over the course of the last week, the Kentucky House of Representatives honored fallen military members and their families in a solemn, moving ceremony in the House chamber. This tradition began in 2004 and the service has become one of the most significant experiences of the session.
