Reidland school project gets approval

McCracken Schools

At Thursday night's McCracken County Board of Education meeting, approval was given for a couple of items related to Reidland Intermediate School. The Board approved more documents for ongoing remodeling and construction to create the school. Phase II of the project is estimated to cost $2.4 million, and the school for grades 4 and 5 is set to open in fall 2015. The plans will now be submitted to the Kentucky Department of Education for approval. The Board also approved funding of $63,000 to construct a new playground for the school. The playground will be where the practice football field is located and will cover about half of the field area. The same amount of funding was allotted for the playground constructed at Lone Oak Intermediate School. (McCracken County Public School System; Updated: 5:46 am, Friday)

Care packages for law enforcement

A local fundraising drive to provide area law enforcement with care packages this holiday season. "Cruiser Care Packages," sponsored by the Police Wives of Kentucky, is to unite our community supporting those who serve us daily. PWOK members hope to collect items to fill more than 100 bags to distribute to as many agencies as possible. Bags will be filled with hand sanitizer, chapstick, lotion, tissue and other items used by law enforcement during the winter months. Those who would like to donate items can drop them at the Benton Police Department, Marshall County Ambulance Service or Marshall County Sheriff's Office. For more information, call Callie Duke at (270) 906-5917 or e-mail callieduke@rocketmail.com. (Updated: 5:48 am, Friday)
