Bill and Glenda Long opened their new business – Long Lasting Auto Detail Shop – April 1. Since then, it has been nothing but blessings, according to the pair.
Glenda, the daughter of Pauline and the late Buck Taylor of Magnolia, had moved away for about 25 years and had been longing to come home. Her husband Bill and she had lost their jobs in Charlotte, N.C., where they lived.

A Fort Knox Federal Credit Union spokesman confirmed Monday that a branch office will be built in Hodgenville.
Michael Bateman, vice president of marketing, said few construction details are available, but the land purchase closed last week. The branch will be located in the Cradle of Lincoln development across from Hodgenville Elementary School.
The office probably will be similar to the most recent branch opened in Campbellsville in February. It will be the 13th member service operation for Fort Knox Federal.
