  • Garbage fees to go up July 1

    Garbage pick-up prices will rise starting July 1, but could be locked in until June 30, 2014.
    The current rate per month for garbage pick-up is $13.78.
    According to county judge-executive John Settles, the new rate would rise to $13.99, but would do away with the fuel surcharge.
    “However, in negotiations, (Rumpke) presented $14.25 and we negotiated down to this,” Settles said.
    Under the current contract, the rate started at $13, but had three levels of three-percent increases built in to cover the cost of gas.

    All of Idle Hour Park lights up when Darrol Byrd comes to the plate.

    First of all, he’s seven years old.
    Secondly, there’s Lesch-Nyhan disease. It’s a very rare disease that creates high uric acid in his stomach, which creates kidney stones.
    “As the kidney stones form, it depletes his muscle control,” Rea Byrd, his mother, said.
