Hopkinsville Community College will open up a recently-purchased Agriculture building later this month and the long-term plan is for more expansion.
HCC President Doctor Jim Selbe spoke to the local Kiwanis Club Thursday about the 50 Year Plan for the college, which includes additional expansion if all goes as hoped.
Doctor Selbe says the very long-term plan also calls for purchasing the current Christian County High School building when the public school system decides to build a new facility.
The old Yellow Ambulance building on North Main will be shown off to the public after being converted into an Agriculture building. Doctor Selbe said one of the larger renovations was installing a new door in the old ambulance bay to have clearance for a combine.

The report says Brown ran back into the bar when he saw Officer Marcum, but he was arrested on one count each of second degree indecent exposure, disorderly conduct and public intoxication. Brown was booked into the Christian County Jail and released the same day.
