  • Birds arrive as the season ends

    We got our wish! There are finally some decent numbers of waterfowl, mostly geese, in our area. And for the past week, the water hasn’t been frozen, at least not frozen solid.
    That means we’ve been able to squeeze in some last minute waterfowl hunting. Of course that ended for ducks on Sunday, Jan. 25.
    And all those geese? Well, that season ends on Saturday, Jan. 31.
    So, where did our 60-day season go? It was just a couple of weeks ago that I wrote about the season opener coming up.

  • Deer: Gordon family

    Three generations of the Gordon family harvested a buck this hunting season.

  • Farm Bureau to host legislative forum Jan. 31

    Marion County Farm Bureau will be hosting its annual legislative forum at 8:30 a.m., Saturday, Jan. 31, in the Farm Bureau conference room at 690 Metts Drive, Lebanon. Joining them will be the Marion County Cattlemen’s Association and Central Kentucky Ag Credit.
    Senator Jimmy Higdon and State Rep. Terry Mills will be on hand to discuss current issues in state government.
    All interested constituents are invited to this open meeting. The legislators will be available for questions from the public.
     

  • Hibbett Sporting Goods, Inc. scheduled to open in May
  • Stillhouse sprinkler burst

    On Jan. 9, The Stillhouse in downtown Lebanon experienced some water problems, which were reported to the Lebanon Police when water was seen coming out of the doors.
    “It was just a sprinkler head,” said Taylora Schlosser, co-owner of The Stillhouse.
    She said the building did not receive too much damage as a result of the leak.
     

  • Tracking progress

    Superintendent Taylora Schlosser reviews the goals for the school district during each regular meeting of the Marion County Board of Education.
    One of the goals is for all students in every school to receive a comparable education. This is a priority for the Kentucky Department of Education as well.
    "Basically, it charges site-based councils and boards to actually look at different groups of kids to make sure that every group is performing at a high level," Schlosser said.

  • Heroin will be a focus in 2015 General Assembly

    State legislators met earlier this month primarily to address procedural matters, and they will return for this year's short session on Feb. 3.
    But one issue that has support across party lines and branches of the government is curbing the heroin epidemic in Kentucky. Three years ago, a new state law made it more difficult for "pills mills" to operate in Kentucky, but there was another consequence.
    "As a result heroin became cheaper, more widespread," State Representative Terry Mills said.

  • Perfect 10th

    Jeremy Bowman has had a unique view of the Kentucky Bluegrass Music Kickoff, serving as the emcee since the festival started in 2005 at Centre Square.
    "Did I think we'd stick it out 10 years? That night I didn't," he said. "But I'm sure glad we did."
    If this weekend is any indication, they'll still be holding the KBMK for years to come.
