It has been reported by Ohio County Commissioners that last week’s heavy rains washed out the concrete on the downstream side of the Hartford Crossing. A pool of water was gushing around the crossing and commissioners feared the entire crossing would be washed away if it was not repaired soon. This was the first heavy rain and first high water at the location since the crossing was completed last fall.

Rehearsals for a class play have been underway for the past three weeks by members of the Senior Class.
