    Editor:

    The residents and staff of Carrollton Manor would like to thank everyone in the community that contributed to the clothing drive/adoption at our facility and to others who have donated clothing, food, knick-knacks and their time. A special thank you to Rev. Tim Polley for organizing the clothing drive/adoption and a very special thank you to Reva McManis, without her taking the first step to make people aware of our residents and their situation none of this could have been possible.

  • Trail ride for Kinman scholarship a success

    Editor:

    The third annual Sheriff Jamie Kinman Scholarship Trail Ride, which took place on Saturday, Oct. 15, was a huge success!

  • Rand outlines domestic violence statistics in Ky.

     Each September, domestic violence-prevention programs across the country take part in a one-day census to illustrate what they and the victims they serve face at any given moment.

    The numbers are sobering.  In 2015, the most recent year available, 40,000 people nationwide sought shelter during that 24-hour period and another 31,500 received non-residential assistance in such areas as the courts, childcare and transportation.

  • Pledge to be a ‘Co-op Voter’ and vote Nov. 8

    Editor:

    As President and CEO of Owen Electric Cooperative, I care deeply about the  

    communities we serve and want the very best for every one of our members.
