Staff Report

Knox County deputies Claude Hudson and Keith Liford received information Tuesday that there were two fugitives living in the Poindexter Trailer Park in Barbourville. One of the fugitives was supposed to be wanted out of Florida and the other from Kentucky. The deputies located Christopher Bruner, 27, of Barbourville, who was wanted on a Kentucky Parole Violation warrant. The other male was from Florida; however, no record of any arrest warrants could be verified by the deputies from that state or any other.

Alcohol in Barbourville? The petition is out.

It’s been three years since a petition was circulated to allow alcohol sales in Barbourville.

On Wednesday, Jan. 28, a petition began circulating around Barbourville saying

“We the undersigned registered voters hereby petition for election on the following question: ‘Are you in favor of the sale of Alcoholic Beverages in Barbourville?’ KRS 242.020

The petitions can be found in local businesses throughout Barbourville.

Those signing the petition are not necessarily asking for alcohol sales in Barbourville, only that an election to that effect be held.

See the complete story in Thursday’s edition of the Mountain Advocate.

It was Peggy Gray’s election and Gordon Hinkle’s re-election that had Judge Skip Hammons working after hours to ensure all Knox County Board members were sworn in officially.

Once everything was in order, future school board meetings were set for the fourth Tuesday of the month at the Annex with the exception of: (March, Knox Middle School), (April, Lynn Camp), (September, Knox Central High).
