West Marshall Fire
The West Marshall
Fire Department has now annexed the Pioneer Fire District,
offering potential cost savings on insurance to more than 400
local homeowners in the area. West Marshall Fire Chief Brian
Andrus reports the county has acknowledged receipt of the
petition and the process is complete and due to be effective as
of March 1. The District will begin responding to calls for
service in April when Pioneer's current contract with the city
of Benton expires. The West Marshall Fire District encompasses
62 square miles in the west and south areas of Marshall County
and offers residents an impressive roster of 33 firemen, 12
trucks and three stations. West Marshall has purchased land at
301 Jackson School Road where they will build a new sub-station.

Kentucky highway fatalities rise in '14
in Kentucky increased in 2014 after a record low in 2013.
Kentucky Office of Highway Safety preliminary figures from a
January 16 report indicate 667 people lost their lives on
Kentucky roadways last year, up from 638 in 2013. However, it
was the second lowest total since 1949, when 573 fatalities were
recorded. KOHS Executive Director Bill Bell said there were some
encouraging trends in 2014 on which to build. "Because more
motorists took responsibility for their driving habits, there
were 81 days last year in which no one lost a loved one on our
roadways, which is up from 75 days in 2013," Bell said.
