  • The County Commission announced plans to look into how to provide access to 21 acres of Mined Land Wildlife Area that is currently landlocked.
    Mined Land official David Jenkins asked for help to access the site, just north and west of the Crawford County Historical Museum, earlier this week. One option would be to create an access trail from the loop drive at the museum. Commissioners also asked to look into a potential road just north of the museum, as well as some other options.
    "I took some time at the museum looking at that loop road that Mr. Jenkins was referring to," said Commissioner Tom Moody. "It's really nice. It's like a park unto itself. I'd like to have [county surveyor] Ron [Albertini] survey to the north of the museum and see if we have room for a road up there.
    "That'd be the best option. It's the shortest, most direct route," said Commissioner Bob Kmiec.
    The commissioners also approved closing the county courthouse on July 5 for an extended Independence Day holiday.
    Commissioner Carl Wood and County Counselor Jim Emerson were at conferences related to their county work and did not attend Friday's meeting.
