A Pentecostal congregation will find a new home after the church's development plan on Colby Road was approved at last night's planning meeting. The public hearing for the church was postponed at the last Winchester-Clark County Planning Commission meeting because proper notification for the hearing was not mailed. The Rev. Barney Bates and his congregation, who have been renting a building for the nine and a half years they've been in Winchester, returned with their plan for a 3,200-square foot church on 10 acres, which he said at the last meeting would accommodate up to 150 people.

Dakota giggled and wiggled as he sat on his mother's hip. Cassandra Kleitz was thinking about her favorite part of being a mother when her 1-year-old son answered the question for her by wrapping his arms around her neck. "The lovin's," she said, laughing. "Like right now, huh?" Dakota is Kleitz's first child, and the two are learning about each other together in a Boyle County Health Department program called HANDS. The acronym stands for health, access, nurturing, development services, and is available to first-time moms and dads in every county through local health departments.
