The Barren County Board of Education pays its monthly salary list in cash.  This is something that has been occurring regularly for some eight to ten years and is an achievement that very few County Boards in Kentucky can boast.  The Board not only meets its teacher payroll promptly but pays every other bill when due.  Good management is the secret of success.

The City Council, in view of the Depression, has extended time of paying city taxes, without penalty, to November 1, as suggested by Mayor Clayton.  It was also suggested that, in view of the distressing times, a lower tax rate should be levied and the city property be assessed the same rate as last year.  The Times believes this idea is a good one and will be acceptable to most property owners.

Backers of the Free Fair and Fall Festival to be held September 22-24 are to be commended for their determination to again hold the fair this year.  Fairs all over Kentucky are being abandoned this season, but not in Glasgow.  Many local businesses, despite the depression, have stepped into the breach, supplied the premiums, and showed their determination to keep the fair going after 12 years of continuous showing.  They are to be congratulated.
