    The Owen County VFD would like to thank the following businesses for helping our golf scramble be a success. Without your help we are not able to do these things.

  • Letter to the editor: Get involved to preserve KET

    aAs fall begins, I am reminded that we are entering a new season of enriching programming and robust educational services offered through Kentucky Educational Television.

In addition, KET provides distance learning courses in physics, Latin, German and soon Chinese, early childhood education resources and training, GED preparation courses and more serving all ages.

  • Letter to the editor: Obama trying to fool the people

    On Nov 6, 2012, the President and every House seat and 33 Senate seats are up for vote. The 2012 election is more than just a decision between two candidates. This election will determine the kind of government we will have and the kind of nation our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will inherit from us.
    The next president elected along with the congress could make crucial decisions about our future economy, Social Security and health care that will affect all Americans for future generations.

  • Letter to the editor: Letter showed a distaste for the less fortunate

    I enjoy reading The News-Herald. When appearing, I especially enjoy letters to the editor. Some I find amusing, others informative. It is certainly a way to share local news and ideas. Some I agree with, others I don’t.
    The letter appearing Oct. 10, 2012, “Time to Wake Up America” I found not only to be some sort of fairy tale, supposedly occurring in a college classroom, but a cowardly way of making a statement.

  • Letter to the editor: Time to wake up America

    The below e-mail was passed to me with only the initials (CB) to identify it; therefore, I cannot verify the content, but as I pondered the brave men and women who have fought to PASS THIS WONDERFUL COUNTRY to us I felt I must pass this information to a broader reader base than just e-mail recipients.
    Please read this carefully and prayerfully and remember this warning when you vote in November.  If our forefathers had been as naïve as our generation seems to be, we would be living under communist control today.  WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!

  • Letter to the editor: Don’t support Democratic platform

    I will not vote for Wanda Crupper Hammond for Kentucky House of Representatives for our district because she swore: “I believe in the principles of the Democratic Party and intend to support its principles and policies.”
    The 2012 Democratic Party platform is the official statement of Democratic Party principles and policies and I find the principles and policies stated there in support of abortion totally unacceptable.

  • Letter to the editor: Israel deserves the support of Americans

    I will not be voting for Wanda Crupper Hammond for Kentucky House of Representatives for our district because she has sworn: “I believe in the principles of the Democratic Party and intend to support its principles and policies.”
    The Democratic Party National Platform is the official statement of the principles and policies of the Democratic Party to which politicians who run as Democrats must swear to file as a candidate.
    Those positions may be modified by the state, district and county party resolutions.

  • Letter to the editor: Government made the mess and must clean it up

  • Owen High made bad parade decision

    I always thought homecoming was a tradition of students, past, present and future, so I’m shocked and disappointed to learn that this year everyone except the high school is excluded from the homecoming parade.  I’m especially disappointed that the undefeated MBMS Rebel football team and the youth football teams, which are the feeder program to the high school football program are excluded from this tradition.

  • Letter to the editor: People helped make Owen our new home

    Walking is both good for the body and serves as a good time for reflection. There is nothing like viewing a place from the ground level, so when moving to Owenton a little over a year ago, it was natural for me to put on my walking shoes and do some exploring. What I saw was both beautiful and disheartening. Yet, the Lord had brought my husband Bill and I here for a purpose so I was determined to go beyond the obvious issues clearly seen in the aging buildings and look a bit further.
