GRAVES COUNTY, Ky. - Quite a bit of money is on the way to a local county to work with kids to help them avoid substance abuse.

The Agency for Substance Abuse in Graves County, Kentucky is the recipient of $125,000 a year for each of the next five-years.

The funding will enable the hiring of a full time substance abuse prevention coordinator some time in October.

The money is from the Drug Free Communities support program.
