However, the sale doesn’t necessarily mean the cars are permanently lost from Clinton, said Farmrail president and general manager Judy Petry.

Spring Feed set for next week

While Clinton Public Schools is dosed next week for spring break, the school district will once again be providing hot lunches at no cost for Clinton students 18 and under, said CPS Nutrition Director Crystal Sharp. Meals will be served from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Monday through Friday in the Nance Elementary cafeteria. Parents who bring their children to Nance for lunch are welcome to join them for a small fee, she said.
