3 Dec., 2014 SJ-R: Mount Pulaski names gym for basketball coaching legend Ed Butkovich
    

3 Dec., 2014 The Courier:  Warrensburg-Latham boys basketball coach Vic Binkley picked up many things from Ed Butkovich during his time at Mount Pulaski - The ball press among them. That came back to haunt Mount Pulaski Tuesday night at the newly-dedicated Ed Butkovich Gymnasium. The Toppers committed 15 turnovers and fell to Warrensburg-Latham 62-40.  "That’s what we try to take pride in," Binkley said. "We want to hold teams under 40."  Binkley assisted Butkovich before taking over the Cardinals’ program in 1986.  "He was a big part of my career," Binkley said. "I owe a lot to Ed and the ball press and everything he taught me about basketball. It was bittersweet. We’re here and it’s a business. We definitely want to win basketball games, but we also know it was a special night for Mount Pulaski."

11 Nov., 2014 New Herald News: — The county board has relocated the regular board meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 18 to the ballroom at the Lincoln Rec Center. The move was made because the 3rd floor courtroom at the courthouse is not available that evening. A larger venue is needed to accommodate potential crowds at the meeting when the board will be voting on the petition of Arch Coal to rezone land near Elkhart.

The Logan County Zoning Board will be holding a Public hearing to discuss a request from Meridien LLC to acquire a Conditional Use Permit for construction and Operation of a WIND FARM South and West of Mt. Pulaski. Included on the Wind Farm would be 81 wind turbines, collector lines, substations, transmissions lines, access roads, meteorological towers, and related appurtenances.  <click on map to enlarge>

Place of Hearing:   Mt. Pulaski Christian Church

       Family Life Center-114 N. Lafayette St.

Date:                      Thurs., November 20th, 2014

Time:                     7:30 p.m.

All are invited to attend and be heard.
