    “After being retired for 15 years, I was ready to get out of the house and try something different,” said Howard. “A friend told me how she enjoyed conducting a bible study at Hardin County’s corrections facility, and I thought that might be a possibility.”

    Her interest aroused, she applied to teach adult education at the LaRue County’s corrections facility, a position she has held since November.

  • College students should take advantage of their meal plan



    Many colleges require students to have a meal plan, especially if they live on campus. Meal plans vary among colleges, but most will give students a certain number of dining hall meals per week. Students may also be able to add flex dollars to use at the campus food court or other locations. The larger the school is, the greater flexibility students may have.
