    I moved to Owen County in 1995 at the age of 14. I played football, ran track, dabbled in basketball, and was the first male cheerleader for Owen County High School. I consider Owen County to be my hometown, although I haven’t lived here my whole life.

  • Lettter to the editor: Senior center continues to touch lives in new location

    I’ve really appreciated the activities and meals at the senior center service. I lost my job over a year ago, I was depressed and lonely. At the center, I’ve met new friends, my husband and I have enjoyed several day trips with them.
    I know a lot of seniors would come if they had transportation. Churches out in the county should consider bringing a van load to the center once a week.
    Thursday is our birthday/Halloween bash with pizza provided by Snappy Tomato. After lunch, we’ll play Bunco, which was a new game to all of us.

  • All I’m saying is ... Congress should focus on the possible instead of the impossible

    By the time you read this, the federal government will be shut down.
    I’m writing this four days before the deadline to reach a deal  is set to expire.
    How can I go ahead and spend the time to write something when the outcome isn’t assured?
    I have confidence that no deal, no compromise, no settlement, no agreement, no bargain, no treaty will be made before the deadline because I have no faith in most of the Washington lawmakers to do anything that can’t be spun into a total positive for themselves.
