  •  HILLVIEW — What is a trowel club?

    For the Zoneton Masonic Lodge it is the social and fund-raising arm of the organization.

    For others, it is a group of volunteers who make things a little better for the community.

    Ethan McHargue, who recently graduated from Bullitt Central High, will be heading to the University of Kentucky with a $500 scholarship.

  •   SHEPHERDSVILLE - Summer is here and the weather is heating up, but a local agency hopes to help take out the worry for some homeowners needing a little more summertime assistance.

    The Multi-Purpose Community Action Agency is offering its Weatherization program, designed to assist qualified families and seniors in paying utility bills and preparing their homes to be more energy-efficient.

    The program is offered annually with assistance from the Department of Energy and funded in part through the Cabinet for Health and Family Services.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON— Three hundred and fifty thousand miles.

    That’s how far Dr. Denise Allen has driven to and from work the past 12 years.

    In measures of time, that’s an estimated 5,760 hours or 720 eight-hour workdays, the equivalent of three years of work for an educator.

    That Lexington-based drive ended this summer though, when Allen retired as principal at Mount Washington Middle School.

    “I’ve spent 20 percent of my life here,” she said.

  •  FRANKFORT – If you live in Western Kentucky, or are headed that way later this month to view the total solar eclipse, make sure you pack more than a lunch and some lawn chairs.

    Eye safety will be critically important.

  •  Last night during the news at six, I saw a commercial spotlighting French Lick Resort as a great destination for couples looking for a romantic getaway. Without a doubt I concur (after our family visit) to French Lick, Indiana for the 4th of July weekend. The West Baden and the French Lick are both stunning examples of architecture that offer golfing, casino gaming, carriage rides, strolls through manicured gardens, spas, horseback riding and live music. However the cities of French Lick and West Baden are much more than just a getaway for couples.
