  • Teens sought for their 'Insight'

    Beginning in October, the Central Kentucky News-Journal is the place for the teens of our community to have their say.

    That's why the News-Journal will once again publish a monthly teen page. The special page - called "Insight" - will run throughout the school year.

    And applications for membership on this year's CKNJ Teen Board are now being accepted.
