Napier to seek re-election

LANCASTER - State Rep. Lonnie Napier, R-Lancaster, will seek re-election to the 36th District House seat he has held since 1984.

Napier has served on several committees in the General Assembly, including appropriations and revenue, transportation, state government, tobacco task force and veterans affairs.

According to Napier, "Service on these important committees allows me to make things happen for the people of Garrard and Madison counties that would otherwise be impossible. It is very important that we maintain the seniority we have established on these committees, and this is one of the reasons why I am seeking re-election."


Napier had sought his party's nomination to run for the seat in Congress left vacant by Gov. Ernie Fletcher. Alice Forger Kerr got the party nod last week.

Board grants variance for carport

LIBERTY - The Liberty Board of Adjustment granted a variance Tuesday evening to Earnest Murphy, who plans to build a carport on his property on Allen Street.

The city Planning Commission referred the request to the Board of Adjustment after Murphy made the request. The proposed carport is too close to the property line.

Benny Patton, a neighbor of Murphy, said he had no objection to the carport being constructed on his property line.
