Columbia regional drivers licensing station update

We are reminded that Columbia is one of the regional drivers licensing locations in the state with Gov. Andy Beshear's announcement of a new regional location coming to Bardstown.

The Columbia location is reportedly moving people through with ease and efficiency for regular licenses - once a person can find the building. The problem here is finding the office once in town.

A Horse Cave resident stopped us as we were entering Kay's Cafe this week to ask if she was close - she'd been driving around town until she was frustrated but had previously tried the Bowling Green regional office only to give up due to the long wait.

From Ty Coleman

Troop 185's Phoenix Patrol has returned from Scout Camp. From June 23rd to the 29th Troop 185 made their week at the Pfeffer Scout Reservation for Boy Scout camp. The boys - Xander, Justin, and Ty, as well as two leaders - joined many other Troops from several states in the area at this camp.
