New Owensville Skatepark

The Owensville aldermen on June 18th approved the authorization of a new skate park in the city of Owensville. The city hired a designer from Tempe, Arizona to design the park. They are to pay Pillar Design Studios LLC. up to $5,000 for the work on will to develop two conceptual designs of the park, from those two designs one will be selected for the final development for the skate park. The location of the park will be a perfect spot with the Owensville Water Park being right next door, rumors are saying the park will be location where the tennis courts are. The park even made a Facebook and Instagram page to keep the citizens of Owensville updated on the park. A citizen of Owensville is now starting a fundraiser to raise $10,000 for the park to be built with all kinds of ramps and railings for skaters and scooter riding to have some fun.

I’m personally excited for the park because I longboard and it would be a nice change because I’m use to just riding my longboard, now I can learn how to do tricks with it. The park will also another activate I can go and do in the town because there is not that much.




Netflix has blown up after the couple of years of great movies and shows to watch just of a click of a button. It is changing the way people watch television, more people are watching their and movies on Netflix rather than on cable. With Netflix adding new shows and movies every month there’s always something to watch for everyone. Even Netflix themselves are making their own great movies and shows such as: Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, 13 Reasons Why, The Kissing Booth, and The Do-Over.

Netflix also has some classic movies like The Breakfast Club which I just watched last night, I recommend it. Netflix also features a lot of Marvel movies which I love them. In the first quarter of 2018 Netflix brought 7.5 million new customers to the video service. Before Netflix would send you DVD-by-mail, but in 2007 they switched to online video streaming. By 2009, Netflix expanded their online streaming partnering with Xbox 360, Blu-ray disc players, PS3, and Smart TVs. In 2013, Netflix made their first three original series being House of Cards, Hemlock Grove, and Orange is the New Black, those being the beginning of hundreds of greats Netflix originals.

Netflix has brought a lot of friends and family together to enjoy movies and shows. Netflix still continues to grow with new customers and Netflix originals. If you don’t have Netflix I really do recommend it as it has shows and movies for every group of people.
