  • Popular Kids Kollege is in its 34th year at SCC

    You’d think kids would want to stay as far away as possible from the classroom for summer vacation.
    But then again, “Kids Kollege” isn’t your typical educational setting.
    More than 150 kids, ages 6-12 years, from Pulaski County and other areas made the trip to Somerset Community College over the last two weeks for the Kids Kollege program.

  • First Stop owners front.jpg Business booming for new liquor store

    Five liquor licenses were approved for Somerset and the third store to open was this past week.
    Called "First Stop,"the new package store it is located on the west side of U.S. 27 between lights 20 and 21, which is a little north of TSC Tractor Supply. The owner is Charlotte Perdisaris and the manager is Michael Scott.
    Perdisaris has been working on getting the store ready for a number of months but was delayed by the shipment and installation of a large 10 x 20 foot walk-in cooler that lines the back of the shop. Otherwise, she thought they could have opened much earlier and, perhaps, have even been the first to open.With such a large cooler, they have a large supply of beer and wine in it to choose from. As to other spirits, they have a large variety of brands, especially high end brands such as Crown Royal and R&R. In addition, they have beer singles on ice. At this time, they are the only local liquor store selling beer in kegs.
    First Stop is the last liquor store to open that is locally owned and operated. The remaining two licenses are to drug store retailers.
