Safety Issues and practices at the courthouse:  The subject was revisited because of an incident that happened outside of the courthouse a couple of weeks ago where fireworks went off on the courthouse yard.  The dispatcher at the jail was notified that shots were fired at the courthouse.  Undersheriff Kelley said the situation was resolved in a matter of minutes and said that is why the courthouse employees were not notified to lock down.
