The board agreed to sell about 20,000 gallons of water per day to Russell Springs for a short period of time while that district builds a water plant. The water will serve residents along Ky. 80. East Casey district buys water from Russell County to serve a few residents along U.S. 127 near the Casey-Russell County line south of Dunnville.

Benefit planned for Lincoln woman:

JUNCTION CITY - Lightning Valley Motorsports park will hold a benefit race and dirt drag Sept. 21 for Amanda Lane, a 24-year-old Lincoln County mother who will soon undergo a kidney transplant.

Lane has been battling the disease Lupus, which affected her kidney functions and has caused her to endure dialysis treatments daily for the past several years. A cousin is donating her a new kidney. After her transplant surgery in Cincinnati, she will have to be there for several months away from her 6-year-old daughter and gathering a large debt. She draws some disability money, but she makes $6 too much a month to receive a medical card to help with these bills, especially expensive medicine.

Surgery is scheduled for Sept. 25, and she is in the hospital now with an infection. To help with her bills, Lightning Valley will run the go-kart track and the drag track Sept. 21. All gate proceeds will go to Lane. Gates open at 11 a.m., and practice starts at 12:30 p.m. For more information, contact Ed and Vicky Hasty at (859) 854-6535, 853-0005 or (606) 365-1669.
