Many students are learning online this semester and Kentucky Lieutenant Governor Jacqueline Coleman is wanting to help families pay for internet service.

There are an estimated 32,000 Kindergarteners through 12 students in the state who do not have internet access in their homes.

The "Last Mile" program will dedicate 8 million dollars to connect those children to their lesson plans.

According to the Lieutenant Governor, the goal is to provide high-speed internet service for all k-12 students in low-income homes and no more than $10.00 per month for the next 2-3 school years.

More information on how to apply will be released in the coming days.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
