Today's Opinions

  • Letter to the Editor: Will rose thief enjoy flowers?

    I planted knockout roses on the graves of my parents, grandparents and late husband last year. I visited their graves at the first of the month to see how they were doing and to trim them up a bit.

    Imagine my surprise when I went to decorate my loved ones’ graves this weekend and found one of them had been dug up, the hole filled and leaves spread over the now vacant spot where it once stood.

    Did you think I wouldn’t notice that I was missing one rose?

    Did you, perhaps think it might grow better in your yard and rescued it.

  • Six years and still lost

    Much has happened over the last six years. My family has grown by two. Kentucky has seen three different basketball coaches, my VCR has been replaced by a DVR and my Internet is now wireless.

    Something else has been happening for a little more than half of the last decade. My wife and I became fans of a little television show called Lost. You may have heard of it. If not, indulge me for a second and let me recap it for you.

  • Letter to the editor: Supporters helped make Sweet Owen Arts in the Park a success

    The Owen County Arts Council would like to thank everyone who came out to support the second annual Sweet Owen Arts in the Park. We had a great day with more than 660 people in attendance.

  • Leadership Owen County

    The Leadership Owen County 2010 Team continued our tour of the community May 5.

  • Letter to the editor: Sacrifices of veterans should be remembered

    It’s me again, Margaret A. Murphy.

    Enthusiasm for the New Liberty Archives with a family research center and the vision for tourism is on the increase within the minds of our people of Owen County. Discussion and your thoughts revealed is good.

    Now, let’s consider adding a veterans memorial – a notable and enduring memory of their service for our country at the same location.

  • Letter to the editor: School staff deserve recognition for efforts

    Although I was unable to attend the (May 10) board meeting, I would like to thank all the parents who did attend. I also want to thank the board members for all their hard work during this time and commend them for asking the right questions. I think that the large parent presence was very encouraging to the staff, and at this point encouraging the staff should be our main concern. Budget cuts are an unavoidable reality and they are everywhere; however, if the cuts are handled correctly our kids will not suffer. 

  • Letter to the editor: District should follow the meetings law

    While I knew that Mr. Cleveland would have a rebuttal to my recent letter the editor, I do wish he had stuck to the truth. He knows exactly why I did not leave. The purpose of my speaking with Ms. Miller was to explain the law behind the request for the information. I’m not a legal expert, but I can read. Yes, I did have the requested documents in hand that morning, but it was a day late and a dollar short so to speak. I had requested them the day before as the law provides and was refused and told to return the following morning. That is why I was there.

  • Letter to the editor: Relay for Life, new center brings hope to cancer patients

    Relay time is right around the corner. It will be held May 28 and 29 from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. at the Owen County Park. As a county, we have so much to celebrate. We have more teams than ever, fund-raising is better than ever and most importantly we just opened the Owen County Cancer Resource Center Sunday.
