  • Pipeline partners pen letters to local landowners

    Work on the Bluegrass Pipeline project is moving forward, as are the companies’ promotional efforts.  

    Local landowners recently received letters from the Williams company, and Thursday, Williams and Boardwalk Pipeline Partners hosted a “telephone town hall.”

    Even so, a company spokesperson said the project likely would not come through Marion County, although that isn’t enough to convince some local landowners.

  • Acts of charity

    “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.”

  • Jail may need more funding from county

    Marion County Jailer Barry Brady returned to the Marion County Fiscal Court Thursday seeking approval for a $60,000 transfer, if needed.

  • Renewed faith

    Anyone visiting or driving by St. Charles Catholic Church may notice a bright, white statue depicting the crucifixion of Jesus. The statue was first built in 1946 in memory of a former student at St. Mary’s College, and it was recently restored.

    “It is my hope that future generations of the community will visit it as a reminder of what it represents,” said John Browning, a member of the St. Charles cemetery committee.
