Five more locations are slated to open over the next several years in Georgetown, Shelbyville, Shepherdsville, Owensboro and Danville. The Mount Sterling Captain D’s, at 488 Indian Mound Road, is owned by sisters Jarka Wells and Simona Benes, with Wells’ son, Shawn Drake, managing the day-to-day operations. Wells and Benes have been part of the Captain D’s family for more than four decades, thanks to their parents, Jerry and Elfrieda Benes, who took over ownership of two Captain D’s in Richmond and Winchester.

▪ Midway University’s Athletics Department has launched a redesigned website. The site added several new features, including a “recent recruits” banner, which shows the last five recruits to sign a letter of intent and links to an archive that shows all past recruits, allowing fans to get to know future Eagles before they arrive on campus.
Never miss a local story.
“We not only needed to redesign the site for functionality, but also to better reflect our brand and athletics program,” said Ellen Gregory, vice president, marketing and communications. “The previous website was designed when we were still Midway College. Although we did a quick update of the graphics when we changed to a university, we felt like we needed a fresh start, since we transitioned to a full co-educational institution in fall 2016.”
To view the new website, go to Midway.edu.
