The drama students invite all to see the story of Alice as she travels through her wonderland. Ticket prices are $3 for anyone over 12 and anyone 12 and under are free.

Sharp Middle School, and will perform for the Children’s Story Hour at the Pendleton County Public Library. They will be speaking with students at each production on what is involved in creating a show from costumes, scenery, props, make-up, accents, and illustrating differences between a traveling show and a traditional stage production. The younger students will hear about turning a book into a stage production and how they are similar and different.
By Ed Salerno, Reporter By all reports from council and audience members concerning Butler’s daytime Halloween Trick or Treat at Nov. 6, 2017 meeting of Butler City Council, it was a success and a wonderful turnout of children in great costumes. In other news, the Fire Department report noted that there were six runs which were all on Matilda Street. Mayor Greg McElfresh reported that Police Chief Kenny Hale has been put on night shift. He had a total of 65 calls with two arrests last month. Butler City Attorney Joey Verax reported about his efforts to settle the real estate deal with David Bay. It has taken much time and legal effort for Bay to donate property to the city. As one of the last steps, Verax noted that he needed the city’s tax ID. Verax also continues to work at collecting back real estate taxes. The mayor said he is ready to sue one party as their delinquent tax bill will reach $16,000 by January 2018. In audience comments, Bro. Darryl Mullins said Butler Baptist Church will hold a Thanksgiving Dinner at the Community Center in Butler from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Participants can eat in or get it to go.

Keith Smith, Reporter Kentucky Revised Statue 83.660 gives guidelines on the removal of a mayor for a first class city. Circuit Court Judge Jay Delaney had concerns that this statue may play a role in former City of Falmouth Mayor Elonda Hinson’s appeal of her removal from office. Working with Judge Delaney’s office, Hinson’s lawyer, Christopher Roach, and Bob Bathalter, representing the City of Falmouth, determined that with Falmouth not classified as a first class city, the statue was not relevant to this case. According to the Kentucky League of Cities website, a first class city with a population of 100,000 or more. Only Louisville/Jefferson County Metro area is a first class city in Kentucky. Falmouth fits into the fourth class city standard with a population in the range of 3,000 to 7,999. With Judge Delaney’s dismissal of the City of Falmouth’s motion to be removed from the lawsuit, the case has been pending a brief to be filed by Hinson’s lawyer. Bathalter indicated that after the legal petition is filed by the plaintiff and the city of Falmouth as defendants have answered the petition, the plaintiff will file a brief detailing evidence to show the reasoning behind the statements made in the petition. At this point, the brief is being prepared by Roach. He indicated that he expects it to be filed with the courts by the end of this week. Once the brief is received by the courts, the city will have an opportunity to reply. Judge Delaney will review all pertinent information and determine whether he wants to hear both lawyers argue points in front of him. That is expected by both sides
