  • Two Mile remembrance was a social paradise

    June 13 is a very special day in the history of African-Americans. It was situated in a week that was set aside to recognize that our community is no longer segregated, but unified in an attempt to become viable members of society and to recognize the accomplishments of local communities.

    It was befitting on this special day that the First Annual Two Mile Road Reunion was held on the Gayle and Branom properties.

  • Letter to the Editor: REACH continues to serve the community

    REACH of Northern Kentucky is a Christ-centered nonprofit organization whose goals are to reduce substance abuse among youth and adults and to raise community awareness to the monumental problem of drugs we are facing.

  • Letter to the Editor: Thanks to all involved with carriage ride

    What does the clip clop of a horse-drawn carriage, raspberry-lemon scones, Benedictine On Rye, an 1800s girl’s finishing school, a riverboat pilot, historical museum and a civil war soldier have to do with a world cup gun shoot? For goodness sakes.

    It all happened in Owenton Friday, thanks to the generosity and hard work of a number of people and community groups.

  • Georgia: On her mind

    “Here in Kentucky … [the] past has always felt close and I’ve always felt connected to it, sprung from it, like it or not. Down the road from my house is an old family graveyard. One of the graves there is for a woman whose first name was America. Even though I live in the middle of nowhere, sometimes it feels like I live in the center of it all.”

    Poet Maurice Manning, Southeast Review, 2008

  • Letter to the Editor: Arts in the Park is a success

    I would like to applaud the Owen County Arts Council for the wonderful “Arts in the Park” fair last Saturday. It was evident that a lot of planning and hard work made the event a success.

    It was an impressive mix of excellent exhibitions, talented musicians, accomplished artists, and skilled craftsmen.

    Thanks guys for making this happen.

  • Letter to the Editor: Another tea party planned for Fourth

    This July 4 will find people from all over Kentucky converging on the steps of the capitol building in Frankfort. A great many of these folks will be coming on buses from such cities as Elizabethtown, Louisville, Somerset and many others. This will be the second “tea party” conducted this year at the capitol building. The first one was held on April 15.

  • Protests change one man’s opinion

    Alright, I will admit it.

    I was wrong.

    A few weeks ago, I wrote a column decrying the uselessness of Twitter, the Internet service that allows people to send short blasts of information to a list of people who sign up to receive them. In most cases, these 140-character blasts are used to carry irrelevant tidbits like “home from work now. going to take a nap” or “wearing my new sneakers and they are GREAT.”

  • Owen County continues to grow - Guest Editorial By Frank Downing

    Owen County may not share the doom and gloom stories that we hear from some areas of our county and really worldwide.

    We should be very thankful here in Owen County with the many projects that are under way or have been recently completed.
