Calloway County Public Library may see a smaller expansion than had been proposed. The board has been considering plans with an estimated cost upwards of $7.6 million dollars. The plans have met vehement objection from Judge Executive Larry Elkins, who criticized the board in a public address earlier this week.


Longtime Murray lawyer Rick Lamkin will run for Calloway County Attorney next year.

Sitting County Attorney David Harrington has held the post for 11 years. According to a representative in his office Harrington has not made up his mind regarding another run for the office.
