  • Letter to the editor: Kincaid endorses Stivers for county clerk

    I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Laurel Stivers for Owen County Clerk. I highly recommend Laurel as a candidate to serve as our county clerk.

  • Letter to the editor: Alcorn shares our values

    I just want to start out saying that our family follows all political aspects within Owen County. We have yet, but one, candidate that has cared enough to show up and share his views and outlooks for our county.
    This man is Gary Alcorn. I see how he enjoys meeting new individuals and sharing why he should be sheriff of Owen County.
    There are numerous signs of different candidates that have been through my residence and I feel that unless I meet and hear their values and outlook for our county, I may just be voting for one candidate, and that is Gary Alcorn.

  • Clerk’s Corner: Primary day on horizon

    It’s of no surprise to anyone who has spent time in and around the county clerk’s office that the clerk and staff have been busy. We are preparing for both the primary election May 20 and for the delinquent real estate tax bills to be turned over to the clerk from the sheriff on April 15.
    On May 20, voters will go to the polls to vote on candidates for United States senator fourth congressional district, circuit clerk judge 15th judicial circuit, county judge-executive, county clerk, sheriff and magistrates for Owen County.

  • Guest columnist Julian Carroll: March was a reminder of our history

    Many lawmakers and myself joined thousands of Kentuckians gathered along Capitol Avenue Wednesday to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr,’s March on Frankfort.  Dr. King led 10,000 others in a march up to the front door of our Capitol on March 5, 1964 in support of the Kentucky Civil Rights Act and I was there too.  

  • Letter to the editor: Urge A.G. to enforce state’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage

     A federal district court judge has ruled that Kentucky must recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. Kentucky’s Attorney General Jack Conway says he has not yet decided whether to defend Kentucky’s constitution by filing an appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals of the federal district court judge’s ruling.

  • Letter to the editor: Historians seek Canby stories

    Preserving the history of Owen County presents challenges especially when elderly people of Owen County pass away and their stories and remembrances are not shared with others.
    The Owen County Public Library and the Owen County Historical Society are involved in a joint effort to preserve the history of Owen County communities, the early schools and businesses, and the events that contribute to the traditions that provide a rich legacy for the future.
    Currently, we are searching for information and/or pictures of the Canby community.

  • Letter to the editor: Crash victim, family appreciates help

    Greetings from Lexington.
    My husband is the truck driver who had the accident on Cedar Creek Road last week in Kay’s Branch. One of his co-workers who drives the route frequently, picked up a copy of the News-Herald for us today and told us of the article about his accident.
