1911Smith Drewery has purchased property beyond the Danville city limits on Perryville Road and will shortly open a soft drink stand selling, as a specialty, cream of hops. Boyle County already has one of these emporiums and it is run in an orderly fashion.

Fair president Samuel Brumfield and secretary Hamilton know how to entertain the multitude. One event is a man who was hired to make an ascension every day is a real corker. He went up to great heights and could be seen plainly from Main Street. He is going to make a double today, which is having two parachutes coming down a distance in one, then changing to the other. It is a very dangerous feat and certain to be thrilling to the spectators. In other Colored Fair news, the dance was held at the Opera House and a band from the fair provided the music. There was a very large crowd and those present experienced a very delightful time.The City Council in Danville has established a bad precedent by permitting the laying of antiquated brick pavements where concrete pavements were ordered. Some property owners who wanted to repair their brick pavements were told that they must put down only concrete pavement, otherwise the town would construct the concrete pavements and sell the property to pay the bill. However, the council granted permission for some brick pavements to be laid on Lexington and Third streets. In order to correct the serious blunder, the council should tear up the brick pavements and stand the cost of putting down concrete.1926Yesterday, Stanford Police Judge W.J. Duncan tried a case over the telephone, thereby probably establishing a world’s record in the history of courts. E.H. Cummins from Mount Vernon was under bond to appear in Stanford on charges of drunkeness and unloading coal within the city limits without a license. Just before the case was to be called for trail, Judge Duncan received a call from Rockcastle County Judge Charley Carter, informing the Stanford judge that Cummins was in his Mount Vernon office and could not possibly reach Stanford at the set time. It was suggested that Cummins be tried over the telephone. Judge Carter agreed to vouch for Cummins and the trial was started. Within four minutes the trial was over. Judge Carter collected for Judge Duncan, a $5 fine and costs on the drunkenness charge and a $15.50 license fee to unload coal in the Stanford city limits.Mrs. E.

In trying to gain interest in forming the group, Mrs. Soper said all interested women should submit themselves voluntarily to an organized Civil Defense group designed to share information on how to survive in case of a nuclear attack and the human problems that will be involved, among other skills. The minimal personal knowledge may save her life or the lives of her family. Through this organization, each woman may learn her part in the preservation of our civilian way of life.Three young men were arrested on Mitchell Lane near Perryville after they allegedly drove off from a Washington County store without paying for gas. The boys were chased through a section of Boyle County by Chief of Police Davis of Perryville and other officers, and some residents. Davis found the men and car coming through Perryville, and pulled up to follow them. The youths turned out Michellsburg Road, but Davis’ car stalled and he temporarily lost sight of them. When he got it running he got close to their auto again but was delayed by a pickup truck coming out of Cumminstown Road. He again resumed pursuit, but before catching sight of the wanted car, Chief Davis heard a crash and soon found the car overturned at the first large bridge out of Perryville on Mitchellsburg Road. The boys ran but were apprehended.1986Garrard County youths who get into trouble with the law could be sentenced to read. A new program to be started in this county will provide a tutor to work with young people between 14 and 21 who come through the court system. In some cases, youths also could be assigned to the program before they get into trouble. The federally funded program allows superintendents and district judges to work together to keep young people in school. The judge can sentence a young person to so many hours of tutoring in reading and other subjects as part of the legal proceedings.A recent request by the Harrodsburg City Commission that the National By-Products plant install a system to treat sewage that is being discharged from the plant could lead to the closing of the firm’s Harrodsburg facility.

But, the luckier ones did return recently with Mrs. Tucker to the Galilean Home in the South Fork area of Casey County where she and her husband Jerry raise their 22 children, most of whom have been adopted, and are mentally and physically handicapped. The three newcomers will be the first of a steady stream of poor and sick Haitian children to live with the family while receiving medical treatment in this country.
