  • What’s wrong with a little pipeline through KY?

    By Sister Claire McGowan, OP
    Guest columnist

    Some local citizens have heard about a proposed Bluegrass Pipeline to run through Nelson and 17 other Kentucky counties on its way from Pennsylvania and New York to the Gulf area. Some haven’t. Many are seeking more information. It might be helpful to lay out some of the issues from the perspective of community sustainability.

  • Looking at agriculture and Kentucky’s economy

    While it should surprise no one that agriculture is one of Kentucky’s biggest industries, we got a much clearer picture late last month of just how much of an impact it has on our economy.
    According to the University of Kentucky’s College of Agriculture, the commonwealth’s farmers are the foundation for more than $46 billion in annual revenue.

  • 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.

  • Remembering our fallen officers

    The tragic loss of Officer Jason Ellis recently has left our community, the commonwealth and the nation grieving for this outstanding member of the Bardstown Police Department who was passionate about his work and the people he protected.
    As a seven-year member of the police force, Officer Ellis was well known to all of us. He was a dedicated public servant, a devoted family man, and a wonderful citizen. Without a doubt, the passing of this fine brave man is a profound loss for all of us.

  • 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.  

  • Governor’s Scholars are good for state

    A little more than 30 years ago, Kentucky was facing a difficult problem: Too many of our brightest students were looking elsewhere after graduating high school.
