■ After more than three decades at the same location, the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission has moved to 342 Waller Avenue.

The new location offers free parking, is on a bus line, offers increased security, and has ample space to extend programming and training options.

Lexington's growing high-tech sector saw the addition of four companies in 2014, bringing more than $3.3 million in grants and capital investment to Kentucky.

The four companies that moved to Kentucky from other states were GISMO Therapeutics, Multi Scale Solutions, Patent Rank and nanoRANCH Environmental Systems. Combined, they will create 17 jobs in the commonwealth with average wages of more than $80,000.

In addition, three Central Kentucky companies have been awarded $4,000 grants from the Bluegrass Angel Launch Grant Fund. The awardees are Endow Energy, Hippo Manager Software and Tryfecta Business Solutions.

The Bluegrass Angel Launch Grant Fund provides small grants to startup companies to help them reach critical milestones in developing their business and/or commercializing products.
