Clarksville Police are looking for a man accused of speeding away from a traffic stop Monday morning.
Officer William Barnes pulled over 25-year old Aaron Cunningham of Chucker Court just before 3am behind G’s Pancake House on Hadley Drive. Cunningham was clocked driving 25 miles per hour over the speed limit and Officer Barnes writes he smelled of some type of intoxicant.

Warrants were taken out for Cunningham’s arrest for evading police and speeding charges.

Hopkinsville Community College will open up a recently-purchased Agriculture building later this month and the long-term plan is for more expansion.
HCC President Doctor Jim Selbe spoke to the local Kiwanis Club Thursday about the 50 Year Plan for the college, which includes additional expansion if all goes as hoped.
Doctor Selbe says the very long-term plan also calls for purchasing the current Christian County High School building when the public school system decides to build a new facility.
The old Yellow Ambulance building on North Main will be shown off to the public after being converted into an Agriculture building. Doctor Selbe said one of the larger renovations was installing a new door in the old ambulance bay to have clearance for a combine.
