Stone carver Keith Middlemas, Oskaloosa, is sculpting four new finials that will replace deteriorating ones on the clock tower at the Douglas County Courthouse. The project is part of a multi-year courthouse restoration effort on the 103-year-old building that began in late 2007. Lawrence artist Laura Ramberg is also working on stone pieces for the courthouse.
