What's news this week in Crittenden County

Educational District 5
Three names are being considered by the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) to fill the vacant Educational District 5 seat on the five-member board of education, and all support a proposed tax increase for new school construction. Ryan C. McDaniel, Kenneth O. “Ken” Crider and Michael A. “Mike” Crider were all educated in Crittenden County schools and have children in the local education system, including the middle school, which is targeted for replacement in the school district's construction plan.
