Clause from 1892 causing issues for church interested in selling property

April 4, 2013

BOURBON — A local church is looking at selling property it uses infrequently to an individual wanting to open a wedding chapel in Bourbon.

Shrinking the gap... (Part 3 of 3) Getting ahead

February 20, 2013

February 12, 2013

MARSHALL COUNTY — A cautionary historical tale: Susan makes her way through high school taking required courses for graduation, but not really thinking about her future.
