Boyle school board to buy land:

Superintendent Pam Rogers told the Boyle Board of Education Thursday the system is moving along "on schedule" to acquire from Centre College 27 acres adjoining Boyle's main campus on Perryville Road.

Rogers said a survey has been completed, and representatives of the district have met with Centenary United Methodist Church, which plans to purchase about five acres.

"We have made Dr. (John) Roush aware of where we are in the process," said Rogers, referring to Centre's president.

"He will have to talk with his board in October, but right now it seems we are moving along on the process."


Rogers also updated board members on the recent lawsuit filed by the Council for Better Education against the Kentucky General Assembly over educational funding levels. Boyle County is a dues-paying member of the council and is party to the lawsuit.

The council charges the General Assembly has violated the 1990 Rose decision mandating an efficient system of funding the state's public school districts.

Due to a reporter's error, information in a Sept. 11 story on the arraignment of Michael and Trena Hays was incorrect.

The reported existence of a separation or pending divorce action between Michael and Trena Hays was incorrectly attributed to Somerset attorney Kathryn Wood, who represents Trena Hays in the criminal case in federal court.

Wood was not the source. The information has not been otherwise confirmed and should be considered incorrect.|9/18/03***
