  • This community cares about others

    It's one thing to contribute time or money to a fundraiser. It's another to go without - just like the people you're trying to help.

    These teens were trying to raise money to help put a stop to world hunger. And raise money is just what they did - enough to feed more than 80 children for an entire year.

  • Federal appliance rebates going fast

    Those who intend to take advantage of the federal appliance rebate had better act fast.

    Just a week into the program, which began last Thursday, more than 60 percent of the $4 million allotted to Kentucky has been spent. The program continues until the funds are gone.
