From all indications, Clark County will have to build a new jail to carry it into the first quarter of the 21st century, but one that comes with a $2.3 million price tag. Jail consultant Jim Woodrum presented three options to the Clark County Fiscal Court at Wednesday morning's meeting in the form of a detailed study of the county jail commissioned in June. The architectural consultant for the city-county civic center project has recommended construction of a new, $1.1 million facility on West Lexington Avenue.

Despite severe weather and heavy rains throughout the weekend, Clark County was left with little damage. “We’ve been out checking. … We fared pretty well,” said Kevin Wilson, Clark County road supervisor. Road crews cleared a downed tree from Four Mile Road, Wilson said, but no other damage was reported. On Monday, as the Ohio and Mississippi rivers headed for "historic" flood levels, Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear declared a state of emergency. Most of the hardest hit areas from the series of storms are in western Kentucky.

Although no one hit the $67 million Powerball jackpot Wednesday, a $1 million Powerball ticket was sold in Winchester. The ticket sold at South Main Grocery matched all five numbers but not the Powerball number. The second prize would normally pay $200,000, but because the ticket holder chose the Power Play option, the ticket paid $1 million. No one has come forward to claim the prize yet, but the winner has 180 days from the date of the drawing to do so. Main Street Grocery will receive $10,000 for selling the winning ticket.
