Marshall County School gets Blue Ribbon
Four Kentucky public schools and five private have been named
2014 National Blue Ribbon Schools, based on academic excellence.
The Kentucky Education Department says the public school
category included Central Elementary in Marshall County.
Education Commissioner Terry Holliday says the schools are
models for others across the state. There were a total of 337
public and private schools recognized.

Local school district receives buses
One local school
district is going green when it comes to yellow. The Crittenden
County school district has been running a propane-powered bus
for the past few years, but this week they got an entire fleet
of them. Gov. Steve Beshear awarded the district about $95,000
to replace older diesel buses with new propane ones. They are
the first district in the state to do so. It is not only
environmentally friendly, but it is saving a little over $5,000
on 16,000 mile routes each year. The extra money saved will buy
textbooks. (Updated: 10:43 am, Wednesday)
Final span of Ledbetter Bridge
The final span of
the Old Ledbetter Bridge is no more. The explosion this morning
was strong enough to shake the piers on both sides of the
navigation channel. The bridge blew about five minutes behind
schedule, but other than that, the process was flaw-free. The
clean-up started moving in immediately. Per an agreement with
the Coast Guard, KYTC has 24 hours to fish all of the steel out
of the river. (Updated: 10:52 am, Wednesday)
