This past November, Community Corrections staff joined Columbia Gas of Kentucky and its NiVets employees to present the 2nd annual VA5K run/walk. Approximately 180 individuals participated in this year’s event which raised $10,672 for the construction of a Fisher House on the grounds of the VA’s Leestown property.
It has been closed to the public for 60 years, home to rusting heating and air conditioning equipment, an elevator shaft, peeling paint and deteriorating plaster. Today, Mayor Jim Gray reopened the restored dome of Lexington’s Historic Courthouse. And it’s gorgeous.
Lexington’s Division of Waste Management will adjust its collection schedule for the upcoming Presidents’ Day holiday. No collection will be made on Monday, Feb. 19.
