The New Jail is Moving Along Nicely

The work crew building the new Hopkins County Jail began putting in piers for the foundation Monday. A little bit of dirt work remains to be done elsewhere. A total of 103 piers will be put some 20 to 30 feet deep unto shale. Workers are hoping to have them all done by the end of the week. County Judge Robert Newsom says the project is 11 days behind schedule due to discoveries made during earthwork.
