  • Saline County Court Appointed Special Advocates held their annual Hands Around the Courthouse Tuesday.
    The annual event raises awareness for the program which provides an advocate for each child that enters the court system for any reason in Saline County.
    The CASA volunteers follow the child’s case as it proceeds through what can be a very impersonal system.
    The volunteers humanize and expedite the process for the child.
    Each year they hold a Hands Around the Courthouse rally. They are hoping to someday have enough CASA volunteers to completely encircle the building.
    Judge Todd D. Lambert spoke to the volunteers.
