Improvements could be made to a highway in Clark County that is prone to flooding, as long as voters support a new sales tax next month.

The stretch of Highway 61 between Alexandria, Mo. and the Iowa state line runs near the intersection of the Des Moines and Mississippi Rivers.

It is shut down at the moment because flood water has overtaken the road.  MoDOT must inspect the road once the water has receded before it can be re-opened.

Unofficial results for the April 2, 2013 election in Clark and Lewis Counties in northeast Missouri.

The former Clark County Courthouse in Kahoka, MO stood for roughly 140 years and it was starting to show its age.

Court proceedings had to be moved to a nearby building over safety and security concerns while the foundation was starting to shift.  There were also accessibility issues and limited space.

Talk of restoring or replacing the facility had been out there for years.  In fact, the Missouri Alliance for Historic Preservation started including the Clark County Courthouse in its list of Most Endangered Historic Places in 2005.
