  • Letter to the Editor: Help make Christmas brighter for a needy child

    There is nothing more rewarding than to see the eyes of a small child light up on Christmas morning after seeing the presents left by Santa.

    Unfortunately, there are many children in our area that will not be able to share that experience.

  • Letter to the Editor: Proud to be an Owen County alum

    Last Friday, I attended the homecoming festivities of Owen County High School. Having graduated in 1967, it was good to go back and see some ‘old’ friends, particularly Larry Dale Perry and Irene Cook Perkins.

    I watched with immense pride the crowning of my great niece as 2010 homecoming queen. Owen County is probably one of the few remaining counties where a young girl who shows big bulls for a hobby can still earn the title of homecoming queen.

  • A helping hand to a banker brother in Dubia

    Greetings From Dubai,

    This message might meet you in (utmost surprise), however, it’s just my urgent need for foreign partner that made me to contact you for this transaction. I am a banker by profession from United Arab Emirates and currently holding the post of director auditing and accounting unit of the bank.

  • 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.
