Clark Fiscal Court changes course on privilege fees
     The Clark County Fiscal Court, rather than Winchester Municipal Utilities, will now have the final say so on new sewer agreements.

Benefit will help Liberty flood victims
     Behind Cundiff Chiropractic in Liberty, it looks like there’s a yard sale going on run by young Amish women. There are trailers spread with hundreds of items, from raincoats to ropes to light switches, and the women in their bonnets and long dresses are busy attending to each piece of merchandise from True’s Electric that had been under water. So it goes all along the south end of Liberty’s U.S. 127 Bypass, where dozens of businesses devastated by the May 2 flooding are making slow, steady progress along the road to recovery. Meanwhile, on Monday, Memorial Day, the community’s can-do spirit will be on full display at the Ag Expo Center just south of town where the Liberty/Casey County Benefit for Flood Relief will take place.
