Good jobs news from Winchester: Walle Corporation's "expansion will result in 23 new jobs at the plant, which currently employs 114 Kentuckians," says a release from Gov. Steve Beshear's office.

Due to growing demands of its fast expanding shrink sleeve label business, the family owned and operated company is making the investment to increase printing production by 50 percent."

Bad from Highlands: "Amazing Grace Whole Foods and Nutrition Center in the Highlands will close at the end of February," reports The Courier-Journal.
