Consideration is being given to naming the new four-lane to Woodbury after former state Sen. Jerry Cooper, who served in the senate for 23 years until his retirement in 2007. County Highway and Bridge Committee members Gary Prater, chairman, Randy England, David Rhea, Blaine Wilcher, and Melissa Yancy met Tuesday to continue a discussion on what to officially name new Highway 70. Bill Zechman attended the meeting as spokesperson for the Democratic Party, which voted Monday night to recommend the new highway be named after Cooper.“We have an opportunity to recognize a Warren County native and a Warren County resident who has been a tremendously valuable public servant,” said Zechman.
