  • 2012 Golden Gobble Awards: Reds...

    The envelope please.
    Thanksgiving is here and that means it is time for another edition of my Golden Gobble Awards - my annual look at the biggest blunderers of 2012. The holiday would not be complete without them. They are the dressing to your turkey. They are the gravy to your mashed potatoes. I just hope that, unlike dinner, they don’t leave you with heartburn.
    My first Golden Gobble goes to the United States Ryder Cup team. The team went into Sunday with the lead against the European team. There was no way they could lose.
    Oops.

    The college basketball season is under way with two former Owen County High School standouts in the middle of it all. Sawyer Williams and Rianna Gayheart are both playing college basketball this fall and making history at the same time.

  • Owen County makes a run at state...

    The Owen County High School cross-country team wrapped up its season on Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park.
    The Rebels took part in the state cross-country meet.
    As a team, the boys finished 12th out of 27 teams.
    Owen County was led by junior Hunter Trenary who finished fourth overall. The outcome was an improvement from last season when Trenary finished eighth.
    “I was very happy with the way I ran today,” Trenary said.  “(Saturday’s race) might have been the best race of the season for me.”

  • Deja Vu for Rebels

    They had their chances.
    Turnovers and missed opportunities did in the Owen County High School Rebels  Friday night at Patterson Field. Three first-quarter miscues and several empty possessions led to a season-ending defeat to Holy Cross.
    The Indians defeated the Rebels 42-32 in the first round of the Class 2A state playoffs.
    The game was a rematch of last year’s second-round game when Holy Cross came to Owenton and defeated Owen County 45-0 to end a perfect season. The Indians would go on to win the Class 2A state championship.
