Illegal drugs and three pistols were seized by Clinton police the morning of July 17 across the street from Southwest Elementary School.

Ivan Troncoso, 53, who lives at a house where the items were allegedly found, was arrested.

Following 5-0 votes by the City Council, the City of Clinton is upgrading its information technology equipment with a $45,000 package from Hewlett-Packard and a new agreement with Cable One that will more than double its monthly Internet service fee from $450 to $1,000.

Inmates of the Custer County Jail will continue to receive health care from Advanced Correctional Healthcare Inc. of Peoria, Ill., under a contract renewed Monday by county commissioners.

The annual fee is rising slightly under the new contract – from $38,520 to $39,445. That’s an increase of $925, or 2.4 percent.

   Clinton Livestock Auction owner Blake Berry estimates there are 30 to 40 percent fewer cattle than there were three years ago in this extended and continuing drought.
