  • Honeysuckle bush is invading county

    Honeysuckle bush is invading county
    The invasion has started! Please help fight back and save our county.
    Have you heard about the worse environmental invader now coming our way – bush honeysuckle? Drive around metro areas in early spring and you will find how this bush has taken over the landscape. It is first to leaf out in spring and creates a thick shade bush up to 12 feet tall.

  • Keep Marion County beautiful

    This column is being written and published specifically for the jerks that continue to vandalize the Scott’s Ridge lookout. It’s also for anyone who knows them. I’d like you to relay this message to them because I’m certain the delinquents who are trying to spoil one of the most beautiful views in Marion County don’t read a newspaper.
    Anyone who has attempted to ruin the splendor of the Scott’s Ridge lookout should know – you’re being watched.
    And, when you’re caught, you will be prosecuted.

  • Spring View Hospital’s staff show genuine care and concern
  • Marion County kids have talent

    Marion County is blessed with so many incredibly talented children.
    Last week, I was fortunate enough to see many of them in action.

  • Crusade for Children is a lifesaver

    Around this time of year when local fire departments begin collecting money for the Crusade for Children, I’m reminded of how blessed I am to be here.
    The Crusade helped save my life when I was born.
    My twin sister and I were born five to six weeks premature, and soon after I was delivered I was having difficulty breathing. The “Baby Buggy” took my twin and me to Norton Children’s Hospital and the medical staff there saved my life.
    So, obviously, donating to the Crusade is a no-brainer for me.

  • Career services help new grads start strong

    By Terri Thomas

    Across the Lincoln Trail region, thousands of high school seniors are counting down the days to graduation and the next exciting chapter of their lives.
    Whether that next chapter is the start of a career or post-secondary education or training, the Kentucky Career Center – Lincoln Trail (KCC-LT) wants new graduates to know about free services that can help them start strong.

  • Do something good

    Our community is full of really, really kind people.
    I’m reminded of that daily.
    Sometimes, it’s the small gestures of kindness I notice. Like the lady who works at the convenient store who gave me an unexpected but very much appreciated compliment recently while I was buying my cup of coffee. Or, the man who stopped me while I was walking down the sidewalk last week to share some positive feedback about something I wrote for the paper recently. Those small gestures of kindness can make a big difference in someone’s day.
