June 25, 2014


Planning for the 36th annual Prairie Arts Festival, set for Aug. 30, is well under way, with a new design and featured artist to boot.
West Point Clay County Growth Alliance Director Lisa Klutts said this year’s shirts were delivered Tuesday and would feature the artwork of longtime vendor Nancy Waggoner. Waggoner will serve as this year’s featured artist for PAF, as well. Klutts, who has helped coordinate the festival for the last six years, said it was a theme she’d begun last year and hoped to continue going forward.

West Point is another step closer to a new set of sidewalks for Central School and Fifth Street Junior High School. The sidewalks will be funded by a $563,000 grant from Safe Routes to School (SRTS).
The national SRTS program began in 1997 as part of a campaign to reduce deaths and injuries among children walking and bicycling to school.
West Point Chief Administrative Officer Randy Jones said the new or repaired sidewalks will be on Brame Avenue, East Street, Westbrook Street, Fifth Street, Progress Street and Main Street.
