    Quality health care for adults who need it may only be a few a months away in Anderson County.

    Lately, we’ve had an ongoing discussion at the library, with those on our strategic plan committees. I’m in the camp that people read for fun, aka recreation.

  • Community Actions does more than pay electric bills

    Over the past two years when Troy Roberts has introduced himself as executive director of Blue Grass Community Action Partnership, people have responded in one of two ways.
    “They either say, ‘who?’ because they aren’t familiar with us, or they say, ‘Oh, you all pay electric bills,’” Roberts said.
