  • Taking pause to honor public servant Mike Haydon

    The General Assembly is now recessed for a 10-day veto period and will return on March 25 for the final two days of the 2013 Session. While consensus hasn’t been reached on important bills dealing with the public employee pension reform, industrial hemp and military overseas absentee voting, the Senate is ready and willing to work on these unresolved issues.

  • Increasing transparency is the goal

    Although several major issues are still pending, the General Assembly wrapped up much of its work early this past week, and for a “short” legislative session, there is a fairly long list of key bills that have made it to Governor Beshear’s desk.

  • LETTER: Community supports St. Baldrick's pre-event

    The first St. Baldrick's Music/Food Fest fundraiser in Loretto on March 9 was a huge success. Our goal was to raise $2,000, but after the final tally it was more than $5,000. Wow, what a night of fun, food and fellowship for a very worthy cause. Of course there were numerous behind the scene volunteers that deserve recognition also. I kept hearing what a great job we did, but the truth is, we were just the tools that our Lord was using. We had an angel in heaven, Renee Donahue, watching over everything we did. I think she was proud of it.

  • Ladies First

    The Marion County Lady Knights have had quite a ride during the past four years.
    Four straight trips to the Sweet 16.
    Three trips to the final four.
    Two consecutive state finals appearances.
    And one perfect season, ending with the first girls basketball state championship in Marion County history.
    It’s hard to know where to begin in recounting this team’s success.
    They finished the season 39-0 becoming the first unbeaten Kentucky girls team since Marshall County in 1984.
