The Marion County Judicial Center will close at 1 p.m. Monday, March 31. It will reopen at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 1. The Marion County Circuit Clerk’s Office will be going live with the Kentucky Court of Justice Accounts receivable program on Tuesday.

This school year, Kenny Marrett has been serving as a liaison between the Marion County Jobs Consortium and the Marion County Area Technology Center. In that role, he visited the Marion County Fiscal Court on March 20 seeking some assistance.
Marrett said he would like to help students complete projects, such as a wooden lock and a small hot air engine, which would be more involved than what students have been making.
"We would like to introduce a craft fair at the end of the year," he said.
Spring View Hospital hosted a car show Saturday, March 22, to raise money for Relay for Life. Dozens of cars were entered in the show, and visitors also had a chance to walk through the Incredible Colon, and inflatable tunnel that showed the differences between a healthy and unhealthy colon.
Last fall, Darrel Ballard’s heart started dying.
He was in and out of hospitals for months before he wound up at the University of Kentucky Medical Center, waiting for a transplant. During much of that time, he had only been allowed to see and speak to his children over Skype.
But his nurses made arrangements for his family to visit him on Jan. 28, his daughter Autumn’s fourth birthday.
Kaylee Hughes was a mix of emotions as two stylists starting making several ponytails with her hair. This was the first time she participated in St. Baldrick’s, and she admitted to being a little nervous.
But when all was said and done — and her hair was gone — she still had a smile on her face.
And she has a good reason to be happy about Saturday’s event at St. Augustine Grade School. Hughes was one of more than 70 shavees who raised money for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, which raises money to combat children’s cancer.
