Elizabethtown Community and Technical College has a program that makes it easy to take high-quality, noncredit online courses. ECTC has partnered with ed2go, an online instruction center, to offer hundreds of online, instructor-facilitated courses and announces the launch of “Making Age an Asset in Your Job Search.”
Based on research and programs developed by AARP, this course is a guide for people over 50 who want to make a career change, find employment opportunities, or learn the strategies that will give them the best chance of getting hired.
Campbellsville University, by offering reduced tuition in the Adult College Choice for Evening Learners Program, is stepping forward and helping those who have recently lost their jobs.
The university will discount tuition and related fees, not covered by state and federal financial, or other publicly funded programs, for up to two classes for any dislocated, or recently unemployed, adult who enrolls in the ACCEL Program.
It provides adult learners the opportunity to earn a degree in a convenient and accelerated manner at a tuition discount rate of $265 per credit hour.
Perhaps that chain-clanking, mega-moaning ghost Jacob Marley hit on the true Spirit of Christmas when he wailed to Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol, “Business? Mankind was my business – the common welfare; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence were, all, my business.”

A group of about 66 volunteers at Sunrise Manor Nursing Home in Hodgenville, however, would make Marley’s ghost proud.
Holiday seasons often bring extra weight gain. Over the years, these extra few pounds can add up until obesity looms later in life. Discovering how to prevent these extra pounds may also help reduce the risk of other diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, some types of cancer, as well as other serious health problems. To keep from feeling deprived during the holidays, fix traditional favorites, but eat smaller portions.
