  • Ghent terminates building inspector’s contract, first reading on golf carts held

    In a unanimous decision, prompted by a concern voiced by Commissioner David Hendren at the June Ghent City meeting, the board voted to terminate the contract of Building Inspector Paul Shovlin.

    At the June meeting, Hendren questioned whether Shovlin should be terminated for lack of attendance at the monthly meeting despite the fact that he was being paid $2,400 a year by the city.

    The Two Rivers Bass Tournament participants saw the highs and lows of bass fishing during the competition July 16-17.

However, Sunday was almost the other extreme as the day started with one-hour fog delay and extremely hot and humid conditions. The weather made fishing tough on the anglers, and they found the fish non-responsive, as 18 of the 39 teams recorded no fish caught.

  • GSP, GSA and others great opportunities for gifted Ky. students

    Some of Kentucky’s most successful academic programs take place, oddly enough, when the school year is over.

    Several of these got their start in the 1980s, and they have since given thousands of our brightest middle and high school students a chance to come together in a college setting and learn in ways that often extend beyond the traditional classroom.

    The Governor’s Scholars Program is perhaps the most well-known of these.  It began in 1983 and now serves more than 1,100 students each summer over several campuses across the commonwealth.
