Kentucky and Ohio officials fight over historic rock
(2008-03-06)
(WOUB) - The border fight over a crudely carved
8-ton boulder known as Indian Head Rock is escalating.

Officials in Kentucky are hauling the mayor of Portsmouth, Ohio into court in their effort to get back the rock, which an Ohio historian and a team of divers pulled from the Ohio River.

The river is mostly under Kentucky jurisdiction.

The prosecutor in Greenup County, Ky., has issued a subpoena for Portsmouth Mayor
Jim Kalb to testify before a grand jury on March 28 as a material witness in the removal of the boulder, which is being stored in a city-owned service garage.
