Takes over school system
Holy Cross Elementary School, long a part of the Marion County public school system, will become a parochial school at the beginning of the fall term. That announcement came yesterday from the Rev. F.M. Burch, pastor of Holy Cross Church, whose parish will operate the school in the future.
The $100,000 building, which has housed the school since September, 1958, is already owned by the Holy Cross Parish.

Distiller seeks to sell bottles on Sunday’s
Maker’s Mark would like the Marion County Fiscal Court to consider amending its existing alcohol ordinance so that the distillery could sell souvenir bottles at its gift shop on Sundays.
The request came up during the July 20 fiscal court meeting. Marion County Attorney Joe Mattingly prepared a draft amendment for the court that would create a new class of liquor licenses just for licensed distilleries, but the magistrates were advised to delay any action until another meeting.
