    The multi-class high school reunion has become increasingly popular and success of such events is due, in large part, to finding classmates.

    That’s where technology has opened the door to more possibilities.

    “Last year, I’d say 80 percent of people we got in touch with was through Facebook or email,” said Carol Brown, 1970 Elizabethtown High School graduate. Brown was one of the coordinators for a combined class, or multi-year, reunion of EHS last year.

  • Radcliff bookstore closing after 35 years

    Technology may have killed a local bookstore.

    The Bookstore on Lincoln Trail Boulevard in Radcliff is expected to close in June. Owner Jerry Brown said he had a couple hundred customers, but he has lost about 10 or 20 percent of them and about half of his sales during the past year and a half.
