Grand Jury Report. We have carefully inspected the Barren County buildings and submit this report:
Courthouse renovation urgent. The roof evidently is in terrible repair because we mound many leaks. Several leaks in the Circuit Court room have discolored the acoustical tile.

The Grand Jury, while in session was forced to move from under the leaks to avoid getting wet and perhaps seriously hurt by falling plaster.
