Design plans have been unveiled for a new memorial honoring the victims of a 1997 school shooting in west Kentucky. 


The McCracken County School Board is considering whether or not to put stand alone metal detectors in the new consolidated high school. Board members made the decision at last night’s monthly meeting. School Safety and Security Supervisor Larry Zacheretti says school officials aren’t sure if those types of metal detectors are necessary.

“And that’s that was the reason for the proposal last night to put together a committee to put together a feasibility study,” he said.
