LOUISA — Lawrence escapee sought

LOUISA - Authorities are searching for a woman wanted for escaping from home confinement.

Heather S. Savage, also known as Heather Jude, 35, cut off her ankle bracelet and fled last month, according to the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department.

Jude was charged in Martin County with first-degree drug possession and trafficking, but was home-confined in Lawrence County, the sheriff’s department said.

Savage is believed to still be in Lawrence County or one of the surrounding counties. Those with information about her location are asked to call the sheriff’s department at (606) 638-4368 or 911.

Bellefonte to host parade

BELLEFONTE - The 18th annual Fourth of July Parade will be at noon Wednesday. Lineup will start at 11:30 a.m., beginning and ending at Community Presbyterian Church.

The grand marshal will be longtime Bellefonte resident Clara Marcum.

Trophies will be awarded for best decorated bicycles, cars, floats and lawns and most patriotically dressed boy and girl. Refreshments will be provided.

For more information, call Andy Light at (606) 329-1119.

Volunteers sought for 10K

ASHLAND - The kickoff event of Summer Motion 2012 — the Summer Motion 10,000 — could use some help.

Volunteeers are needed to work the intersections for the road race that begins at 8 a.m. Saturday in front of Park Place across from the Boyd County Public Library.

Volunteers should be there at 7 a.m. to sign up for an intersection.

“This is an opportunity for civic organizations like Rotary, Kiwanis, Jaycees and many others to do volunteer service,” said Lynn Hutchinson, the race director. “Area youth groups from churches or sports team or even just groups of friends can volunteer.”

Workers can be in pairs, and buses will deliver workers to a preferred intersection and return them to the race site at the end of the event. Each participant will receive a Summer Motion 10K T-shirt and after-race refreshments as they are available.

For more information, call Hutchinson at (606) 922-1532 or email summermotion10K@aol.com.

Meetings

Monday


Boyd County High School council, 4 p.m., library.
