Removing a set of buildings a sidewalk?s width from one of Iola?s busiest streets caused quite the commotion Monday.
Crews from Mueller and Sons removed the buildings ? a pair of two-story structures and a third one-story ? owned by Mike and Melinda Luttrell, at the intersection of U.S. 54 and Kentucky Street.
The buildings have served several purposes since the early 1900s, most notably Maloney?s Grocery.
