  • Court ruling a major victory for landowners

    The State Journal

    In his ruling Tuesday on the Bluegrass Pipeline, Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd said much the same as several legislators pushing for a bill addressing the issue of eminent domain.

    Shepherd’s decision saying the company does not have the power of eminent domain doesn’t preclude the construction of a pipeline through Kentucky; it only stops the real or threatened seizure of property from unwilling landowners.

  • Grace will outreach darkness of a ‘Genesis 3’ world

    Let me blunt: I do not enjoy training meetings. As foster parents, my wife and I are required to have a certain number of hours of training every year in order to keep our license and our house open to minister to children in crisis situations.
