Knox County Associate Curcuit Judge Russell Steele ruled Friday that Margaret Irving, 61, of Shelbina would be placed on probation, after she was convicted on three different counts. She was found guilty of manufacturing more than five grams of marijuana, B felony; keeping or maintaining a public nuisance, C felony; and possession of a controlled substance except 35 grams or less of marijuana, a class C felony.
    On Friday Aug. 22, it took a Knox County jury 22 minutes to come up with a guilty verdict on all three charges against Irving, after two days of testimony.
   The jury then began the sentencing phase that same day and sentenced Irving to jail time. She received 10 years in the Department of Corrections for count I., two years in the Department of Corrections for count II., and four years in the Department of Corrections for count III.
   The judge reviewed the sentence and had the option to reduce it or keep it the same, but couldn’t add to it.
   Testimony stated that 35 marijuana plants were found in Irving’s basement along with paraphernalia throughout the house. She admitted to the personal use of marijuana during her testimony.

   New City Clerk
   Tim Lacy was introduced as the new Shelbina City Clerk at Tuesday night’s City Council meeting. Lacy is replacing Mary Lou Craigg who resigned for the same position in the City of Macon.
   Lacy was hired during the closed session of the last regular council meeting at the Shelbina City Hall.
   Demolition Grant
   Lacy reported that the City has officially been approved for the funding for the Demo Grant that will cover the cost of taking down 36 structures within the city limits. The City will be required to contribute $42,000 to the project as well as $9,000 in like kind contributions. It has $50,000 budgeted for the project.
   The next steps include doing environmental inspections, research titles and notify all lien holders of the intent to demolish, make sure the demolition will not disturb Indian burial or sacred grounds. Properties will also require asbestos inspections by a licensed inspector. Six properties are on the State Historical Society list as potential historical sites. They will require an inspection from an engineer to ensure they are structurally deficient and must be demolished.
   Once all of this is done, the project can be put out to bid. The bid process will probably take place around January, and the entire process should be completed by July of 2016.
   2014 Fiscal Year
   Financial Audit Review
   Gary Luck of Luck, Humphries & Associates was on hand to give a brief overview of the City’s financial audit review.
   Luck gave the numbers as of June 30, 2014. The totals assets (governmental activities) were just under $2.8 million. The business type activities, primarily the utility department was $11.415,000. The total asset structure was $14.2 million. Luck noted that the City’s cash position, under restricted assets, represents cash and cash equivalents. That totaled nearly $7 million. The other significant asset was the City’s capital asset which is the basically the utility plant and any property and equipment. That totals $5.8 million after depreciation. On governmental activities, the City has $500,000 after depreciation.
   The total asset structure of the City after the fiscal year was $14.2 million.
   The City’s total liability structure was $1.2 million. “When we compare that to your total assets, you have a very strong asset to liability ratio,” Luck said.

By Thad Requet
   The Shelby County R-IV School Board had a discussion with representatives from the Lewis & Clark Conference, talked about what the conference had to offer, as a formal invitation has been extended to both Monroe City and South Shelby. This was discussed during the regular school board meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 8 in Clarence.
   Lewis & Clark
   Conference Discussion
   Dr. Kelly Shelby, Superintendent of Westran High School, along with Westran Athletic Director Matt Burton, Mike Nagel, Principal, and Holly Wooldridge, Scholar Bowl Coach from Westran along with Marceline’s Athletic Director Kent O’Laughlin were on hand to talk about what the L&C had to offer and to answer any questions about the conference.
   Shelby noted that the conference was very interested in South Shelby and the conference voted unanimously to invite them. Shelby was quick to point out that they weren’t there to say anything bad about the Clarence Cannon Conference. He said that the L&C may be the best conference in the state for teams of its size.
   He noted that Slater is leaving the conference and Harrisburg will be joining in 2016-17. the last school to leave the L&C was North Callaway back in 1988.
   Shelby noted that the conference has nice facilities. Counting Harrisburg, the L&C will have four schools with all-weather tracks. He also noted Salisbury’s new basketball facility that is being built.
   Shelby said he understands the traditions that have been established in the CCC through the years, and stressed that he wasn’t there to say anything negative toward the CCC. He did, however, say that he thought South Shelby would be a natural fit in the L&C.
   Wooldridge explained that with Scholar Bowl, each school hosts a three match night. The conference tournament is usually held on Saturday. With Art, they said they knew the CCC had an art show that South Shelby’s Zack Grassley actually coordinates. In Music and Band, each year schools take turns being the conference chair and hosting the events. They have a college clinic for band students where college aged musicians come in and work with the students.
