    Before hooking up with the Kentucky Youth Career Center in August, Lana Johnson couldn’t decide whether she wanted to go into nursing or criminal justice. She knows now, after participating in an internship program and other services provided by the KentuckianaWorks program.

    A Campbellsburg man has assisted a vastly overscheduled Santa Claus with his personal appearances locally during the Christmas season since the late 1980s.
    Though Jamie Payton has lived in the same city — in fact, on the same property as he grew up on — his whole life and he can count the months he’s been away on one hand, he’s still pretty tight with Santa and the rest of the elves stationed at the North Pole.

  • Christmas is Bethlehem’s time to shine

    Two of Henry County’s most faithfully kept holiday traditions continue to have a place in the otherwise quiet community — the live nativity and the special manger scene postmark from the local U.S. Postal Service office.
    The Christmas season creates extra demand on the USPS as a matter of course and at the same time highlights the village that shares its name with the birthplace of Jesus Christ.
