  • Ann's Dance to offer free reading help for local adults

    Beverly Sullivan has clear memories of her childhood, when her mother used to read Janice Holt Giles books to the family. The experience was not only entertaining for Sullivan, it also instilled in her a love of reading and spawned a career in education.

    The fact that some of Kentucky's older residents can't pass along such a tradition disturbs Sullivan.

    Forty percent - 1 million - of Kentucky's working population cannot read at all or have very limited to moderate reading ability.

    "It's a proud day to gather here to honor the dead," said Bob Rotchi, past ceremony chair. "It's unfortunate that the people on this monument can't be here today to say 'Thank you.'"

    The City will operate on a $15.5 million budget for the coming fiscal year.
