The Appalachian Regional Commission has awarded funding to launch the Promise Zone program in eight counties in southeastern Kentucky.
On one hand, there are battlefields, on the other, there's Belle Boyd, teenage temptress and Confederate spy.
ARC Federal Co-Chair Earl F. Gohl said the agency was "pleased to be awarding the very first Promise Zone grant, a $250,000 two-year allocation, to support the work of the Kentucky Highlands Investment Corporation as it takes on the leadership role for the Southeastern Kentucky Promise Zone initiative."
