  • Four vie for three soil district spots

    For the first time since 2004, local voters will have to choose who will serve on the Marion County Soil and Water Conservation District Board.

    In the spring, Hatchett won the Democratic primary to earn a second shot at Whitfield, who has represented the First District since he was elected in 1994.

  • Sizing up the U.S. Senate race

    Anyone with a television, radio or mailbox has likely received plenty of reminders that incumbent Mitch McConnell and Alison Lundergan Grimes are squaring off for the U.S. Senate seat.
    McConnell, the Republican minority leader, has represented Kentucky since 1984, and is only the second Kentuckian to become his party’s leader in the Senate. He hopes his re-election will be part of a Republican takeover of the Senate, which could push him to be the majority leader.

    On Sunday morning, Presbyterians gathered in Lebanon, which is not unusual in an of itself.

    What made Sunday’s gathering significant was that it was a celebration of 225 years of the church’s impact on the community - a community that came into existence precisely because of the settlers who found the church in 1789.
