Marshall County School gets Blue Ribbon

School Logo

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 demolished

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)
