MOUNT WASHINGTON—Pleasant Grove Elementary third grader Kingston Davis got the experience of a lifetime when he was chosen to train with some of the world’s best soccer coaches in Barcelona last November.
Davis attended a week-long camp last summer and received his invitation to join the FC Barcelona Camp a few weeks later.
According to Davis’ dad, Brian, only about 7 percent of the kids who try-out get the invitation.

SHEPHERDSVILLE — The new year began with a new leader, though this one was a bit more local than D.C.
Justin Guest is the new director of the Bullitt County YMCA. He replaces June Daugherty who retired in December after serving as the only Bullitt County YMCA director ever for 30 years.
Although he may be new to Bullitt County, Guest is no stranger to working for the YMCA. In 2000, he began teaching swim lessons at the northeast YMCA in Louisville. During summers, he refereed and worked the camps.
SHEPHERDSVILLE - A local teenager went an extra mile in his shoes to make a generous donation.

KYKickFest, based in Lexington, recently hosted a shoe swap sneaker convention at Parquet Springs Conference Centre, with 502 Sneak Geeks as its headline sponsor.
