  • I don't believe it!

    When the NCAA Tournament began three weeks ago, one question kept coming up. Who would be this year’s Butler? The answer to that question is unbelievable.
    This year’s Butler is actually Butler.
    The Bulldogs made it to the Final Four for the second year in a row. Butler will now have the chance to get back to the title game where they almost pulled off the biggest upset in tournament history a year ago.

  • Young Rebels eye regional...

    Experience is important. Even if how you come by it is difficult.
    The Owen County High School baseball team took some lumps in 2010. The team finished with just four wins last year and is hoping that going through that experience will only make them stronger in 2011.
    The team lost only three seniors from last year’s squad.
    Byron Robertson, Brody Layton and Kyle Kelly graduated meaning that many of those coming back this year have valuable experience. This year’s roster does not include a single senior.

     Tim Marcum and the Lady Rebels are hoping to build off a strong season in 2010.

    It is March and that can only mean one thing. It is time for me to once again embarrass myself by making my picks for the NCAA Tournament.

  • Lady Rebels’ leader looks back...

    Girls’ basketball in Kentucky came to a close Saturday night in Bowling Green. Rockcastle County defeated Manual to claim its first State Championship.
    The season ended a week earlier for the Owen County Lady Rebels. Despite the disappointment of losing in the Eighth Region Semifinals, the team and the coaching staff have much to be proud of.
    “Great season with 23 wins and a District Championship,” Owen County High School Head Girls Basketball Coach Bob Osborne said.

  • Businesses seek info on Sprint...

    Since its announcement last August, it has been well known in the area that the Kentucky Speedway in Gallatin County will be hosting its first-ever NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race July 9. What effect it will have on its neighboring county from the southwest, however, has been up for debate.
