     Well, this is shaping up, so far, to be the season that wasn’t ... for waterfowlers, anyway!

  • Learning by design

    Brady Spalding had a problem going to the bathroom during the summer.
    During the five weeks he participated in the Governor's Scholars Program, he learned it can be gross relying solely on public restrooms for five weeks. That also got him thinking that there had to be a way to make public restrooms a little less disgusting.
    Spalding and another senior, Matthew Newcome, decided to tackle this problem as their capstone project in Project Lead the Way, a pre-engineering program housed in the Marion County Area Technology Center.

    By the Kentucky Press News Service

    Kentucky Department for Public Health officials have reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that the flu activity level in the state has increased from “regional” to “widespread.”
