On January 6 at noon, a protest was held to oppose the LG&E pipeline that is proposed to go through Bernheim Forest and neighboring small farms. LG&E has taken Bernheim to court with a court date set for January 10 at 9 AM in Bullitt County, Kentucky. The court will determine whether or not to condemn protected land for a natural gas pipeline. Representing the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth at the protest on January 6 are Chris Kunze, SCN; Joetta Venneman, and Carolyn Cromer. Elisa Owen, also pictured to the far right, is the Executive Director of Kentucky Interfaith Power and Light of which the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth are a board member.
