with Marshall Schools
A year ago, Marshall
County invested in $55,000-worth of research into the county.
Now the tourism board is combining two of the county's
strengths: the lake and county schools. The hope is the
combination of the two will lead to the answer for the next
needed tourism push. Research the county has found is one of the
real disconnects was between the younger generation and the
lake. The Kentucky Lake Tourism Bureau believed the young minds
at Marshall County High School were a strength more so than a
weakness. The students in the leadership class were tasked with
dreaming up anything that could help promote the lake and
something the tourism commission could use in their business
model. The students will present their projects to the tourism
board on May 8. The board hopes to use the strongest ideas from
each project. (Kentucky Lake Chamber of Commerce; Updated:

threat at Marshall Schools
Yet another bomb
threat led to the evacuation of a Marshall County School
Thursday, this the third such incident this year with two others
occurring at the high school – one in January and one in March.
At approximately 11:20 am, the Benton Police Department
responded to the Benton Middle School in reference to a reported
bomb threat. A teacher at the school located the bomb threat
which had been written on a bathroom stall. Kentucky State
Police Bomb Detection K-9 Unit conducted a sweep of the school,
to find that it was all clear. Shorty after 1:10 pm, students
and faculty were allowed to re-enter the school. An
investigation is continuing into who wrote the threat.
