  • Amphitheatre’s transparent pricing offers great deal for all

    For the second year in a row, the Lincoln Amphitheatre will present concerts by some of the biggest names in music this summer, all on Saturday nights and all at extremely reasonable prices, compared with what one would pay elsewhere.

We are one of 92 Soil and Water Conservation Districts across the state – and nearly 3,000 across the nation – that provide a neighborly presence to help preserve and protect the natural resources that we all love.

    Back in 2007 we installed a 5-acre, tall-grass prairie with assistance from the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Habitat Improvement Program.  Each year they assist a number of landowners in various ways that improve habitat, prevent erosion and protect waterways. Basically, you do the work but they supply you with the materials needed to get the job done.

    There may be risks in vaping an electronic cigarette, but the government shouldn’t circumvent the existing standards of law in its regulation.
