GRAVEL SWITCH - The doors to Peoples Bank in Gravel Switch will be closed permanently for the first time in nearly a century on Wednesday. Bank President Don McCrosky said that dwindling business and scarce prospects for the future made the decision inevitable. "It is just a very low activity office and the location is not in a big growth area," he said. "We could not justify keeping it open any longer. " Jerry Lanham is a director for Peoples. He and two other investors purchased the bank's stock in 1986 and expanded into Lebanon soon after.

People who are awaiting inspection of electrical work should make sure that their house number is legible. Boyle County Code Enforcement Officer Tom Broach said county electrical inspector Michael Shannon has had trouble locating addresses.

Having just moved to Harrodsburg full time, from the north Georgia mountains, I was thrilled to have read Parade Magazine and called Liz Orndorff; she arranged to get me 12 tickets. I rounded up friends from as far away as Morehead, Winchester, Willisburg and Lebanon ( I told you I was new in town) to attend Hollerwood II at West T. Hill Community Theatre. Wow, what a performance by all. My sides are still sore from laughter. If you live in this community, it is a must to support this level of theater, and this play will not leave you in the least bit disappointed.
