Rumor control
Normally we do not deal with rumors because they are just that and do not need to be addressed.
But, there is a rumor going around that we feel requires an answer because it concerns a very important community investment and facility.
It is being told that the new facility at our high school campus, the auditorium/natatorium, has encountered a major error as the swimming pool is a few feet short of the required length to hold sanctioned high school swim meets.
This is false.
School Superintendent Scott Pierce stated the construction project was on schedule and was  constructed to meet the required dimensions according to the Kentucky High School Athletic Association. The pool measures 75 feet long which is the required length of a sanctioned pool. The pool will be eight lanes wide.
Swimming instructor Ginny Lengel stated the pool was designed according to KHSAA regulations and the region is very excited about having such a new and nice facility to hold meets. Lengel stated it was already being considered to hold regional competitions here and the main concern was the availability of adequate motel accommodations. She affirmed that KHSAA rules and regulations have been involved since the planning and design stage.
We have visited the facility several times during construction and we feel the community is going to be very surprised and pleased when they see the finished product.
In addition to the swimming pool, there is a wellness center that is available to the public, conference rooms and meeting rooms available to the public and the new auditorium is a tremendous community asset.
This auditorium will allow this community to enjoy many events that just have not been available to this area.
This facility is not just a school oriented facility. It is a community facility that could have a very positive economic impact upon this area.

A look at the Chevy engine
Sept. 27 Issue
Russell County News
Back when Chevy first started building automobiles they were powered by a 299 cubic inch six cylinder engine. They could reach a top speed of about 65mph and go from zero to 50 in 15 seconds. That's not too impressive by today's standards but back then Chevy was one of the fastest cars on the road.
