Casey chooses brick for new school

LIBERTY - Although a mixed color for brick at the new Jones Elementary School will cost a little more, Casey County Board of Education decided Tuesday to go in that direction.

Superintendent Linda Hatter said several people wanted the colonial gray exterior brick to be a mix even through there was an additional $26,000 cost.


The board omitted stone benches from the plans, and the general contractor and mason company helped out some to get the cost down to $16,000.

Hatter said the brick had to be ordered immediately, so the decision had to be made quickly.

Library book sale nets profit

LIBERTY - Proceeds of the Casey County Public Library book sale were used to purchase a typewriter and a 32-inch television to help inform women about the dangers of alcohol and smoking while they are pregnant.

Tom Ellis, president of Casey Friends of the Library, said the recent book sale made $337.

He said the next fund-raiser will be in November with Maudine Williams in charge, and another book sale is scheduled in January.

The Friends of the Library also has been informed by the Internal Revenue Service that its application for tax exemption has been approved, Ellis said.

"This means we can accept tax-deductible bequests, devises, transfers and gifts, and the donor will receive tax relief in that amount for income tax claims."
