The City of Morehead, Morehead Housing Authority and Gateway House Homeless Shelter have partnered to open a cooling center at the Rowan County Senior Center located at 200 Heritage Place.

The cooling center will be open on Saturday, July 22 from noon until 6:00 p.m.

A federal judge has ruled that the couples who sued Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis to obtain marriages licenses are entitled to nearly $225,000 in legal fees – and Kentucky should pay up.

The Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet has notified officials with the Ark Encounter theme park in Williamstown that the attraction is in breach of its Tourism Development Agreement, the deal providing for up to $18 million in state tax breaks.

Tony Award winning West Virginia Native Michael Cerveris (Fun Home, Assassins) will guest host during FestivALL Fall.
