The trial is underway to determine the legality of the proposed Bernheim pipeline.

The first day at Louisville Gas & Electric (LG&E) vs. Bernheim Forest included a detailed timeline of the continued conversation that began in 2015 and potential possibilities for pipeline locations and preexisting pipelines. The Public Service Commission was also brought up, and beginning points were started regarding both parties. It is expected to last 2-4 days.

Several associated with Nazareth attended Day 1 of the trial, including Joetta Venneman PBVM, AmeriCorps Volunteers Brendan Dines and Julia Cordts, SCNs Brenda Gonzales and Kelly O’Mahony, and neighbor Maggie Hettinger.

    Your individual participation in the name of the congregation is crucial! Jim Beam isn’t the only influential employer in the area. Keep up the good work (this is an understatement).
