Kids Urge Citizens to Buy American

If you’re thinking of joining the call to “Buy American” in an effort to save jobs, there are plenty of interesting items available for purchase that are made in southcentral Kentucky. Take a look around - you can buy a Corvette, art, artisan cheese at Kenny’s Country Cheese, Sun Products detergents and many other items that are produced locally. But the challenge wasn’t so easy for a group of fourth- and fifth-graders at Holy Trinity Lutheran School, whose tastes run more toward electronics. The group set out looking for items made in America after they found so few of them on a fall trip to Mammoth Cave National Park.
