Woodford County: Dog park has opened

A dog park in Midway has opened behind Northside Elementary School, next to the Walter Bradley Memorial Park on Dudley Street. The dog park was an Eagle Scout project for Midway resident Tim Hagan. The dog park covers nearly an acre of flat land near a wooded area that contains a walking trail. Donations for the completion of last details at the park are being accepted at Midway City Hall.

Midway resident and former police officer John McDaniel was honored at the April 16 Midway City Council meeting for helping a choking victim at a local restaurant. McDaniel received a certificate, a hat and a package of Life Savers candy for his quick action.
