Snow continues to be big problem

County officials say this week's snowfall continues to be a big problem and more is forecast for tonight.

Anyone who has an emergency is asked to call central dispatching at 270-965-3500 rather than any other number or agency in the community. Dispatchers are trained and have at their disposal the resources to properly deal with any situation.

County, city and state workers and contractors are plowing and removing snow as best they can, officials say.

An announcement about schools will be made each day at 5 p.m. While it doesn't look like classes will resume this week, school officials say they will make daily decisions with regard to safety. See more about school makeup days and how the county is dealing with the winter storm in this week's printed edition of The Press, which will be on newsstands tomorrow.
