  • Food banks make changes

    Families who receive emergency food assistance will notice a change in the program Oct. 1. At that time, families needing assistance will go to a food bank designated for their ZIP code. Currently, three food banks distribute emergency food: LaRue County Community Action Agency, LaRue County Church of Christ and Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church.

  • Change can be challenging

    When I was a young student I wrote a significant paper that dealt with human response to change. I no longer have the paper on hand, but I remember its bottom line and have tried to heed its wisdom over the decades.

    That bottom line: most people generally resist change (granted that some among us seem to thrive on it).

    Given that many of us like change in moderation as we live through a period of history heavy with changes, stress is evident in many sectors of society.

  • Settling myths regarding BRAC

    If there are still any BRAC doubters out there, you should have seen the turn out for the Fort Knox Job Information Sessions at the Urban League Economic Empowerment Tour and Career Fair in Louisville earlier this month. We had hundreds of folks show up to learn more about the employment opportunities coming to the installation. Believe me, most were plenty interested in finding out how to qualify and apply for these future positions.
