The Bill Monroe Foundation recently received some bad news. The Ohio County Fiscal Court recently decided to give a Fordsville Water project about $200,000 instead of the Monroe foundation.

Foundation members plan to use the money to buy the Monroe Mandolin. The mandolin is the instrument Bill Monroe, the founder of Bluegrass music, used to play when growing up in Rosine.

Kenny Autry, the magistrate residing over the Rosine area, says the court is experiencing a budget shortfall and decided to fund the water project instead.
