BENTON -- Scott County commissioners are fine with a new Benton time capsule but would like to see a new location for it.

Commissioners looked over the city time capsule's location immediately north of the Scott County War Memorial in front of the courthouse during their regular meeting Tuesday.

"There's kind of like a gravestone marker where it's located," said Christy LeGrand, coordinator of Benton's sesquicentennial events, when interviewed later in the day. "We're going to be digging it up April 24, 2010."
