Update: The Clark County Commissioners consented to a judgment on April 10, 2011, agreeing to repay $20,000 of the $57,500 grant they had received from the State of Missouri to renovate the old courthouse they had demolished. Your tax dollars at work. No word on whether they ever found a buyer for the cupola, or if it was ever really for sale.
Gotta love Post-Modernism, huh? Why, the new courthouse looks just as good as the old one! OK, I’m being sarcastic. I wonder how long this new one will last? By the way, for all of us sentimental types, they saved the cupola from the old building. Last I heard it was for sale.
