  • Tourist commission hungry for more Sunday eating options

    Restaurants in downtown Bardstown are spotty with their Sunday hours, which has at least one tourist official worried.

  • House candidates debate at SCN

    For about an hour Wednesday, the two candidates for the 50th Kentucky House District, Democrat James DeWeese and Republican Chad McCoy, answered questions during a forum at the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth’s motherhouse.

    About 35 people, mostly SCNs, attended the public event, which was moderated by Sister Joetta Venneman.
