Tourism partners with Marshall Schools

Chamber Logo

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: 10:38 am, Friday)

Another bomb 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. (Updated: 10:32 am, Friday)
