  • Keep the ball rolling

    Marion County citizens have waited for too long for enhanced 911, and it still may be years before E911 is in place.

  • Letter: Support organ donation

    As Circuit Clerk of Marion County, I have seen Marion County residents support the Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks' Organ Donor Awareness Program. April is National Donate Life Month, and it is a reminder that organ donation truly is the gift of life to a recipient in need. Every day 17 people die waiting for an organ transplant. The medical miracles that are modern transplants would not be possible without the gift of organ donation.
