The cold front is now working into eastern Kentucky with winds gusting to near 40mph at times. Temps have dropped into the 30s behind the front and we've had reports of sleet and snow mixing with the rain in Lexington.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Louisville-based National Center for Family Literacy says it plans to use a $515,000 grant to fund projects aimed at improving reading and writing skills among children, American Indians and immigrants.
The center received the grant from the Dollar General foundation as part of more than $4.5 million the Goodlettsville, Tenn., foundation awarded to nonprofit organizations for literacy programs this year.
Three of the projects being funded include an early literacy initiative for families, an adult reading initiative for American Indians and a literacy program for immigrant families.
The initiative targets parents and children from first grade until high school.
