  • Nurse practitioners gain more autonomy

    Nurse practitioners have more authority to help their patients since Senate Bill 7 was signed into law Feb. 13. Specifically, SB 7 grants nurse practitioners greater autonomy to prescribe medicine for their patients.
    And that’s important, according to Judy Kantlehner, who has been a nurse practitioner for 20 years and, as far as she is aware, was the first one in Marion County.
    “You can’t very well care for your patients without being able to prescribe medicine,” Kantlehner said.

  • Getting involved, staying active

    Kandice Engle-Gray joined the Marion County Chamber of Commerce in 2002 thinking it would help her and her law practice.
    “Originally, I thought it would be a great way for me to meet the other business owners in the community and other people in the community,” she said.
    The next year she was asked to join the chamber’s board of directors. She agreed to do so, although she admits she didn’t really know what she was getting into at the time.

  • Nelson County family accuses pipeline reps of trespassing

    Frances Strange and her husband, Larry, consider themselves “distraught landowners” who live along the proposed route for the Bluegrass Pipeline.
    At least that’s how they described themselves in a letter to the editor sent to the Enterprise.
    The Stranges live on Loretto Road in Nelson County, but they aren’t far from the Marion County line.

  • Knight STRONG

    On Feb 26, Marion County High School held a memorial for Jeffrey Tanner Strong. Strong, 16, died Feb. 19 when he and a friend were tearing down a tree house. Strong was remembered by his church, family, and peers from MCHS. Strong’s classmates have shown their love and admiration for him in many ways since his death. Strong was an avid UK fan, and his friends honored him by wearing blue shirts in the days after his death. During the memorial service, students donned their UK gear, read memories about Strong, walked a lap around the track and released blue and white balloons.

  • Reading and a round of applause

    I usually keep my mouth shut at school board meetings.

  • Keeping up the tradition

    Through sheer adrenaline, sweat, determination, and skill, the Marion County Lady Knights took down the Adair County Lady Indians for the third time this season. The victory also marked the eighth consecutive year that the Lady Knights have secured the district title. 

    “It felt great winning the 20th District Tourney this season,” Lady Knights Coach Anthony Epps said in an email after the game. “That was one of our main goals going into this basketball season.”

  • Senate prepares for budget, legislation continues

    March promises many things here in Kentucky; for us in the Senate it is preparing for the most difficult part of the job, the biennial budget. As we await the House to pass its version, legislation continues in our chamber.
    On the Senate floor, I had the privilege of welcoming students from my district who paged for me during sessions. I also had the pleasure of participating in a Q & A session with students from Mercy Academy along with other members of the caucus. It is great to hear the perspectives of our youth.
