    MCDC is a model for other jails
    Kay Carlew, Susan Classen, Elizabeth Croom, Maria Visse and I visited the Marion County Detention Center and were impressed with what we found. The entrance is attractive and landscaped. Inside we found a secure, clean, well-lighted facility with space for programs.  Residents are treated with respect and are expected to treat everyone with respect. Mutual respect permeates the facility.

  • ‘All Shook Up’ on stage in Springfield this weekend

    By G.B. Dixon

    It will not be religious fervor that makes folks shake, rattle and roll this weekend in Springfield, just a love for the sights and sounds of the 1950s and a ticket to the musical "All Shook Up," presented by the Central Kentucky Community Theatre Youth Actors.

  • State will keep its promise to teachers

    As things have seemingly calmed down after the end of the 2015 Legislative Session in Frankfort, I would like to once again address the KTRS issue by reassuring all teachers that we are committed to finding a solution.

  • Kentucky businesses setting export records

    By Kim Huston

    When the U.S. Commercial Service (USCS) office in Louisville - the export promotion arm of the U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration - first approached Bardstown manufacturer Armag Corporation in 2009 about selling overseas, the company was busy running a well-known domestic business in a niche market. With products that can be up to 2,000 square feet in size and take a few months to build, exporting was not part of their business strategy.
