During the noon hour on Friday, FedEx delivered 400 pounds of plastic shields for use in the offices of the Independence County Courthouse.
The shields will be used in the preparation for a soft opening, which has not yet been announced. Judge Robert Griffin said May 18 would be wonderful if the preparation could be completed, but that might be wishful thinking.
We’ll keep you up to date on when Griffin schedules the soft opening.
