  • Letter to the editor: Award winner appreciates honor

    Thank you, Owen County.

    I was overwhelmed with gratitude for the Rotary Club’s “Owen Countian of the Year” award, presented to me at the Owen County Fair 2010. I was so surprised.

    I was about age 42 when I felt the urge to record Owen County’s local history. My dreams, aspirations and desire of yester years began to unfold into action.

  • Guest Column: Churches show their SUPPORT

    1 John 5:2 says, “This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands.” 

    Notice the word of God tells us to first of all love God and also carry out his commands. During the summer months of 2010, the Baptist churches in Owen County surely showed their love for God and his children; and by doing this they also followed his commands. Almost 100 percent of the Baptist churches collected school supplies for the Owen County Schools.

  • Letter to the Editor: Community needs and deserves dialysis clinic

    My name is Patty Barnes and I have been on dialysis for almost a year.

    Three times a week I travel to northern Kentucky to receive dialysis treatment. I also see Dr. Mital, a kidney specialist in northern Kentucky.

    If the dialysis clinic had opened here in Owenton, I could see him more, instead of traveling.

  • Letter to the Editor: The hard work keeping county clean is appreciated

    I’d like to take a moment to say thank you to those who have been taking the time and energy to pick up trash along the roads in Owen County. I’ve seen them a few times on my way to Frankfort and I saw a group working on the Sparta Road the other day. It surely does make a difference when people care enough to keep our county clean.

    It would be wonderful if people wouldn’t throw the trash out in the first place, but thank goodness there are those willing to pick it up. Your efforts are appreciated. If I were able, I would help you myself.

  • Letter to the editor: “Why Owen County?”

    For 37 years, I have made Owen County my home. It is a home by choice, having decided all those years ago to leave the home of my childhood and the home of my young adult life. From New York to Owen County – followed by many instances of having to address the question posed by all of my family and each of my friends in the North, “Why Kentucky?” And from my new-found friends and neighbors in Kentucky the question, “Why here, why Owen County?”

  • Our neighbors help keep the stories alive

    “Everyone has a story to tell, and everyone can learn from the stories of others. These stories, taken together, are the stories of our communities, our counties, our regions, and unique Kentucky culture and heritage.”

    – The Kentucky Humanities Council

  • Happy wife, happy life

    A wise man once uttered four words that have changed my life. While talking to him about his life and the successes he had enjoyed, he offered me some marital advice that I try and live by. Notice I said “try.” He said, Brian, if you want to find happiness then you need to remember this phrase: “Happy wife, happy life.”eeBefore I go any further let me just say, I love you, honey. eeSaturday night was my 20-year class reunion from Campbell County High School.

  • Mother is a blessing to her children and community

    Edith Rose Stewart was born on Dec. 14, 1923. She was raised on a farm on Stewart’s Ridge Road in Owen County with her parents and nine siblings.
