    Boone County officials say the county is now issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Our news partner ABC – 17 says county officials made the announcement just before 11 Friday morning.

    In a statement, Boone County Recorder of Deeds Nora Dietzel said “The Recorder’s office is pleased to be able to offer this important service to all of the citizens of Boone County, and assures that all applicants will receive the excellent customer service and attention that we have prided ourselves on for many years.”

    No word yet if Cole County has started issuing the licenses as well.
