    We would like to thank The News-Democrat. We also would like to thank everyone for all the work they have done to keep the memories of Mikie’s Ride going.

    Thanks to all the people who gave door prize donations, all the people who came to the ride, to those who made donations, Carrollton Lions Club, Herb Kinman Chevrolet and people who cooked the food.

    We really just want to thank everyone for all their love and support to keep our son, Mikie Gividen’s memories.

  • Gibsons back Richardson in Owen election


    We would like to encourage the people who are a part of Owen County Rural Electric, to vote for Charlie Richardson as their Director of District I.

    He is a person knowledgeable of the electric business, and had a power line construction business for a number of years.

    As a life long resident of Owen County he has also been a tobacco and dairy farmer and knows what hard work is.

    We have been friends of his since early school days and know him as a caring person who will go out of his way to do you a favor.

    Through our fundraising efforts this year, we raised $12,200 for the WHAS Crusade For Children. This is another record year, for the third year in a row. We want to thank those who help us accomplish this feat: Westside Fire Department, Worthville Fire Department and the family members of the firefighters who helped us with the door-to-door and roadblocks. Also a big “thank you” goes out to Subway, Hometown Pizza, Snappy Tomato Pizza and Papa John’s Pizza who donated food to feed those doing all the door-to-door walking.

  • Quick Money licensed and bonded


    I am writing in response to the article printed in the News-Democrat on May 12, 2016. The article was based on a Fiscal Court meeting pertaining to the sheriff’s office buying a new software program to help solve crimes.

    There were multiple untruths stated in this article. As owner of the only pawnshop in town, I deem it is necessary to clarify the false statements written to the readers.
