  • Ladies looking ahead

    It seems to all be coming together.
    The Owen County Lady Rebels kept right on rolling last week as they defeated two more opponents. In fact, they made it look easy.
    The Lady Rebels started last week against Walton-Verona. The Lady Bearcats came into Owenton fresh off an appearance in the All “A” State Tournament where they lost in the first round, 55-54, to Danville.

  • Rebels hope to get on roll

    A week that began well for the Owen County Rebels quickly went “South.”
    The Rebels opened up last week by traveling to North Oldham. After falling behind early to the Mustangs, the team rallied to pick up the 57-51 victory. Owen County trailed 16-7 after the first quarter but turned things around in the second to cut the deficit to 23-21 at halftime.

  • A legend is lost

    Who knew that the final lap would be his last lap?
    As Michael Waltrip crossed the finish line of the Daytona 500 Feb. 21, 2001, his brother Darrell in the broadcasting booth became both emotional and concerned all at the same time.
    The emotion came from watching his little brother claim the checkered flag. The concern was for his racing brother who just seconds earlier had slammed into the wall on Turn 4.

  • Owen outlasts Grant

    The rivalry may not be what it once was, but don’t tell that to members of the Owen County or Grant County boys’ basketball teams. The two schools — that for years played heated contests in equally hot and cramped gymnasiums — played another close game Saturday in Dry Ridge.
    The gyms may now be bigger but the game Saturday was equally good. On Saturday night, Owen County held off Grant County for a 73-67 win.
    It was the second win this season over Grant County.
