  • Diverse regional team drives workforce development efforts

    By Tommy Turner

    Now more than ever, driving a community’s prosperity depends on effectively managing and leveraging workforce development opportunities.
    In the past several years, the Lincoln Trail Workforce Investment Board has focused on progressive efforts that have had a positive impact on our workforce, from strengthening partnerships across the bi-state Greater Louisville region to supporting our communities’ preparation for realignment at Fort Knox to helping transitioning veterans and military spouses connect with employers.

  • Kentucky Career Center - Lincoln Trail first to earn region-wide certification

    By Daniel Carney

    As an economic developer for Springfield and Washington County, my job centers on business attraction and business retention for our community. Much like my counterparts throughout the Lincoln Trail region, my success is typically measured in job growth and more broadly what I do to help position the community for greater economic prosperity.

  • Marriage for all, or at least anyone who wants it

    On the national level, a variety of news stories are always competing for attention, so you may have missed what I consider some particularly good news.
    In March, the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) voted to change its official definition of marriage. As a result of that vote, that church body now defines marriage as a "commitment between two people." (See story here: http://goo.gl/c6df3J.)

    Making a difference in a child’s life
    St. Baldrick’s is a great cause and charity for children’s cancer research. A Family Off-Hair held our third annual music/food fest Saturday, March 21. We had an awesome time and raised more than $5,000.
    There are four points I want to cover in this letter. The first is we serve a mighty God that blessed us with a great turnout despite the other events that were going on the same night. He showed me that He is in control.

  • Life-saving, landmark legislation in effect

    Life-saving, landmark legislation was achieved by the Kentucky General Assembly during the final hours of the 2015 short session. Senate Bill 192, a comprehensive approach to address the scourge of heroin addiction in Kentucky, reached final passage after countless hours of bipartisan work throughout this session. In fact, this is the third year that the Senate has led the charge on heroin legislation. The bill was signed into law Wednesday morning, March 25, by Gov. Beshear, and is now in effect due to an emergency clause.
