  • ECTC to add more programs

    Officials at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College have been hard at work adding a number of new programs for students to choose in the coming semester.

    Some of the additions include advanced manufacturing, hospitality management and diagnostic medical sonography. Most are available for the fall semester, but the sonography program begins in the spring.

    The recent additions are a part of a “ramped-up” effort to meet the region’s need, ECTC Provost Tiffany Evans said. The college is continuing to look at more programs to add.

One particular reader had challenged me thinking they knew of a LaRue County location I probably didn’t know of. Ron Whitlock was surprised when I told him not only do I know of the place, I’ve spent quite a bit of time there since my friends own property near the area. Making a trip to the location has been on my to do list for quite a while. I dropped the boys off, called in the office on my way toward New Hope. I took Gap Knob Road toward Hwy 84.

    Thought for the week: The best things in life are the people you love, the places you’ve seen and the memories you’ve made along the way.

    This past two weeks have seemed unreal and so sad due to the deaths of several friends and family members. Last Thursday, I went with the Sunrise Manor Adult Day Care to Sulfur Wells to the Lighthouse restaurant. I really enjoyed spending the day with the Adult Day Care clients. It was another thing checked off of my bucket list.
