  • Plan approved for Bardstown branch of Lincoln National

     The Nelson County Development Review Board approved the design of a 5,300-square-foot branch of Lincoln National Bank Tuesday. The vote brings it one step closer to becoming the first Lincoln National branch to be built outside of LaRue County.

    The branch may create as many as 10 new jobs in Nelson County, Lincoln National President Doc Meredith said.

    “We plan to hire all local people,” he said.

    Meredith added he hopes the branch will open during the first quarter of 2013.

    Heading into his junior year at LaRue County High School, Sandidge has been running since he came across the high school cross-country tryouts when he was in the fifth grade. By seventh grade, he had run his first 10-mile race.
