  • NPR donates more than two tons of food to Bread for Life

    Workers at Bardstown’s NPR of America plant recently struck a blow against hunger and food insecurity when they brought in 4,740 pounds of food and supplies as part of a charity drive.

    Four teams — from first, second and third shifts and the warehouse and office personnel — donated the supplies at collection points set up at the plant from June 4-29.

  • Digging for roots

    One rainy afternoon, Mark Thomas of Louisville was poring over heavy tomes in the Nelson County Public Library’s genealogy room.

    He comes here because the library has resources his hometown library doesn’t.

    “They have a complete set of birth and death books, whereas the main library in Louisville … only goes to 1959, and there are missing volumes. It’s almost easier … to come down here than to go downtown and have to pay to park,” he said.

  • ‘It's electric!’

    The Sisters of Charity are adding electric vehicles to their fleet as part of their ongoing sustainability efforts and invite the community to learn more about the cars at a special event this weekend.

    The local SCNs purchased their first electric car, a Chevrolet Bolt, about two weeks ago.

    “It’s the way of the future,” said Sister Theresa Knabel, chair of Nazareth’s Car Committee, adding that some other countries are already looking to ban the sale of new gas and diesel cars to combat growing air pollution concerns.

  • Teams battle cancer, heat at 23rd annual Relay for Life event

    Randy Hernandez and David Fenwick say they are on a mission.

    “A mission from God.”

    No, they are not talking about a remake of the 1980 John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd movie “Blues Brothers.”

    The two men, who were never acquainted before, were brought together in the fall of 2017 by a common enemy — cancer. Both were diagnosed with stomach cancer.

    Hernandez underwent surgery at the Flaget Memorial Hospital Cancer Center while Fenwick began chemotherapy treatments. Weeks later, procedures were then reversed.

  • Prayers for Crystal

    Sherry Ballard sat in the front row of the worship center holding her grandson’s hand and comforting him as pictures of her daughter Crystal faded in and out on the screen. Having gone three years without closure and without answers in her disappearance, Crystal’s family wants more, and until those answers are received, they will work to keep her memory in the forefront of the community.

    “We promise to never let her name be forgotten,” said Mary Daniel Taylor, a family friend and organizer of a prayer vigil held Monday at St. Thomas Parish.
