  • BIG MAC DECISION

    Last week, I announced that the Kentucky Department of Corrections would not enter into a new contract with Marion Adjustment Center once the current contract expires on June 30.
    It was a difficult decision, and brought an end to a successful partnership between the Commonwealth and MAC. This success is a direct result of MAC's effective programming and dedicated staff, and is in no way a reflection on the well-trained workforce and efficient operation in Marion County.
    The decision was strictly a function of inmate population and institutional capacity.

  • In search of relatives

    Does anyone have a great grandmother or great aunt by the name of Gertrude who married Thedis Coppage Brown from Bradfordsville in the early 1900s? She and Brown had two children. They were living in Marion County in 1910.

  • Letter to the editor: Community supports the arts

    The Marion County Heritage Center and the Lebanon Tourism Commission have been especially supportive of Kentucky Baroque Trumpets desire to bring the Arts to Lebanon and Marion County. KBT hosted a concert with two of the finest baroque trumpeters in the world and many businesses and individuals really supported  this concert.  St. Augustine Church provided the venue for our concert and Center Square provided a location for the master class and rehearsal space.

  • Letter to the editor - Backyard chickens

    Backyard chicken eggs are the best. Too bad our city council is too closed minded as to allow people to have a few chickens in their yard. The ordinance they adapted was hastily done, politically motivated, drafted without any consideration of responsible pet owners, as they refused to let us in on the "debate" while at the same time allowing the HSUS to draft the ordinance.

    Impressed with Turtleman
    The day I met the Turtleman was absolutely the best day of my life. I’ll have to admit I was very skeptical at first. So many people I have met have let me down.
    But I can assure you he is the real deal. He reminds me so much of my dad, who died when he was 49. I have not found anyone I have fully trusted or loved so much since then. He loved the outdoors and was the best role model a kid could have.

  • Letter: Coach Daniel Johnson - Going the distance
  • Letter: May is National Foster Care Month

    Here in Kentucky, there are children living in deplorable conditions in their own homes – victims of child abuse and neglect. Sometimes we hear their stories when it’s too late. Other times, they are rescued because a concerned family member or neighbor reports the suspected mistreatment and the children are removed from these homes.

    When removed, where do these children go? Is there a warm bed, a good meal and a loving family that awaits to comfort them after their ordeal? Because of parents around Kentucky, there is.

  • Corrections and clarifications - May 1, 2013

    A photo in last week’s edition should have read that Anne-Michelle Hughes, Ja’Kell Johnson and Aundaria Brown performed with the fourth grade during the Glasscock Elementary School student showcase on April 16.

    A story is last week’s edition should have said the Lebanon Main Street Committee is hosting a meeting at 8 a.m. May 8 on the third floor of the David R. Hourigan Government Building.
