100 Years Ago - 1913 For the first time in many years, no church services were held in Hustonville last Sunday and schools in Moreland, McKinney and Hustonville were closed last week due to an epidemic of measles. Hundreds of cases of a very severe form of measles have been reported. However, no deaths have occurred. The strange feature about this epidemic is that several people are having the disease the second time. This has led to the belief that the measles this year are different from what the people used to have.

HUSTONVILLE - A Casey County farmer is offering a $1,500 reward in hope it will help him regain possession of two Honda all-terrain vehicles he believes were stolen early Monday.

LANCASTER - If area 911 officials are successful in securing an upcoming grant, it could be the solution for emergency-call-routing problems in the Hustonville area. Bluegrass Area Development District is applying for an "extensive" grant that would fund, among other things, equipment upgrades for Casey County that would allow 911 calls to be routed properly through a Lexington network, Bluegrass 911 Director Russ Clark said. 911 calls made from phone numbers on the Hustonville-area 346 exchange are currently routed to Casey County dispatch instead of Bluegrass 911, which provides dispatch service for Lincoln and Garrard counties.

HUSTONVILLE - An ordinance that has support from city council members would require people doing business in Hustonville to pay a flat-rate business license fee annually. Council members agreed Tuesday night that they would like to see a $25 annual fee implemented across the board for anyone conducting business inside the city limits, including brick-and-mortar locations; vendors who stock machines or stores; and workers who make house calls, such as plumbers. Mayor David Peyton said the city could use the revenue to help it stay afloat financially.

HUSTONVILLE - The city of Hustonville will likely wind up paying a little less than $15,000 to clean up the collapsed haunted house structure on Main Street. City Council members have accepted a $9,800 bid from contractor Tommy Owens to clean up the remaining debris from the building, which collapsed Dec. 9. Owens was the lowest of three bidders for the job; the other two bids were for $12,500 and $13,500. Owens also conducted emergency cleanup work shortly after the building collapsed, knocking down portions of the structure that hadn't fallen yet and cleaning away debris.
