          SHELBYVILLE -- The county commissioners have ordered a road election in Jackson Township, May 31, to decide whether the  George W. Scott  road, more than three miles in length, shall be improved.  A road matter that had bothered the board for more than a year was settled in the ordering of the improvement of the  Frank McKay  road, nearly three miles long, in Liberty Township, without an election.  The opponents of the McKay road were seeking the improvement of a road that embraces a three-quarters-mile stripe of the McKay road.
