The Crawford County Community Revival will be held at Hood Park in Cuba July 25-31. Worship is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. each evening.
Despite some issues with an electrical problem that twice led to minor fires and an evacuation of the cattle barn, the Crawford County Fair Board is pleased with how the 75th annual event went last week at Hood Park in Cuba. Overall attendance was at or near last year’s level when a record-sized crowd returned after a one-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
The Cuba man charged just a few weeks ago with five felonies after reportedly assaulting another man at a Steelville river access area and threatening the victim with a firearm was at the Crawford County Fair last week where he allegedly assaulted another person.
Personnel, or the lack of it, in the city of Cuba’s Electrical Department looked like it might get even worse recently but will likely get better soon. After the department’s final employee resigned last week, the former supervisor was rehired and more hirings may soon be made.
Just weeks after a new trial date was set in the age discrimination lawsuit filed by City Street Supervisor Dennis Chandler against the city of Cuba, notice was given last week for a long list of depositions to be taken. Some were amended notices to city officials who had already been served deposition notices but there were also several new ones.
