     Some Powell County students who gave up money raised for a trip to Kings Island to help storm victims will get to go on their trip after all!  On Wednesday, 5th graders at Bowen Elementary School in Stanton decided they wanted to help those in need following last week's devastating tornadoes.  Each 5th grader has been raising money, through a school fundraiser, to attend Kings Island at the end of the year.  After raising $1,700 for the trip, the kids voted to skip it and donate all the money raised to help tornado victims.  Now, a Lexington firm has stepped forward and funded the students' trip to Kings Island.
