Judge-Executive Van Newberry says the current proposal outlines a governing body of five members. The Court will hold the workshop within the next few weeks. The court also voted to allocate $12,000 toward transportation for non-public school children in the St. John&rsquo;s area. Newberry says for years, the state has given money to the Court for this purpose, and it has mainly helped transport children to the St. Mary&rsquo;s School System.</p> Tue, 10 Apr 2012 14:55:57 +0000 Casey Northcutt 17578 at http://wkms.org
