The Judicial Branch is required to report monies owed to the state general fund and the new AR program makes it possible to report this information electronically. Previously, this information was available only through a time-consuming manual process.

  • Beisner hopes first film raises disease awareness

    Feleica Stewart jokes that Goshen resident Thomas Beisner is another member of her family.

    That added a little bit of pressure for Beisner when he was producing a documentary about her son, late University of Kentucky basketball signee John Stewart.

    “She calls me her angel and her son which, now that the documentary is done, is a great thing,” Beisner said Monday. “But it added a lot of fear leading up to that.”
