"Quilts for a Cause" is something new we are trying to start. This will provide individuals an opportunity to donate something handmade for the charity of their choosing.

All donated items will receive the same publicity and opportunities to raise money. All proceeds from each item will go to the maker's chosen, legitimate charity. In other words, I am donating a quilt to raise money for the Humane Society, that is an acceptable charity.

It would not be acceptable to donate a quilt and have the proceeds go to buy a new car - this isn't a "Go Fund Me" type of opportunity.

Also, while my donated item's proceeds is going to the Humane Society, another person may choose for their item's proceeds to go to the Food Bank or other charity. No one charity (unless only one item is donated) will benefit from this silent auction.

We hope to help many charities in the area. We will also have our quilts on display for our show and other items strictly for sale, not for a charity, just as we have at our past shows and bazaars.

Thanks,
Sandy Stark

LAWRENCE COUNTY – September 7, 2017 – People who use KY 1 in Lawrence County from KY 201 to the Carter County line face significant traffic delays for the next two weeks and minor delays through mid-November, according to Mike Blevins, engineering technologist at Highway District 12. Traffic through this work zone will be directed by signs and flaggers.



Replacement of four cross drains from mile point 12.820 (KY 201) to mile point 14.140 (Carter County line) will impact traffic for the next two weeks. Blevins explained that the drains are underneath the pavement, so the blacktop has to be cut and removed to pull out the old drains and install new ones. Traffic cannot drive through the work zone while this work is under way.

At the same time, state contractors will be replacing entrance pipes, pulling ditchlines, and widening the shoulder of the road. This work will continue into November, but will have only minor impact on traffic.

School buses will be accommodated, Blevins said, both morning and afternoon. Other traffic should find an alternate route for the next two weeks to avoid lengthy delays. After the cross drain work is finished, all drivers should continue to slow down in the work area, be alert for work crews and heavy equipment, and be prepared for intermittent, brief delays.

 

Public Notice:

Once again we would like to advise everyone that Vinson Street that runs behind the court house will be ONE WAY, heading north, during Septembefest.

The traffic change will be made on Thursday evening and switched back on Sunday afternoon. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
