CORRECTION Feb. 12 – In an article on page 6 of the Feb. 12 issue, it was wrongly stated that Knox Pawn Shop was changing into a thrift store. It is not Knox Pawn, but the former City Pawn that will become a thrift store. We apologize to Knox Pawn for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Jeremiah Evans, youth pastor of The First Baptist Church, spoke prior the start of the February Barbourville City Council meeting. He informed the near capacity crowd that the former Knox Pawn shop is being turned into a “Live it” center (thrift store).
Evans said, “Just imagine a county with no needs.”
