  • What’s on the ballot?

    Kentucky’s presidential primary is so late in the game that by mid-May, when the state’s voters go to the polls, the parties’ nominees have been all but coronated.

    This year, Sen. Bernie Sanders isn’t conceding to frontrunner Hillary Clinton, the former first lady and secretary of state, and Kentucky, which votes Tuesday, is considered competitive.

    Sanders, Clinton and Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been in the state in recent days campaigning.

  • Survivors inspired by Relay for Life

    Bright blue sky and cool weather made Friday a good day for a stroll at Garnis Martin Field.

    More than 20 teams participated in this year’s Nelson County Relay for Life, an annual fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

    Cancer survivors were honored with the first lap. Wearing purple T-shirts, they walked the Bardstown High School track and then released scores of purple balloons into the azure sky.

    They were followed by the cancer caregivers, carrying white balloons, and then the Relay teams took their turn around the track.

  • Relay for Life is Friday

    The tradition of walking around a track to raise money for cancer research, education and support is one that has been taking place in communities since 1985, when Relay for Life founder Dr. Gordy Klatt was inspired to make a difference. Now, more than three decades later, the Nelson County community will come together to continue those efforts in the fight against cancer.

    Nelson County has hosted a Relay for Life event for the past 21 years, according to Relay Chairwoman Paula Simpson, and has raised nearly $2 million in the process.
