Bonnieville man sentenced in woman's death

A Bonnieville man is scheduled to serve 10 years for his role in a Buffalo woman's death.  38-Year-Old Jason R. Davis is now convicted in connection to the death of Shalayna Skaggs after a routine traffic stop by Lebanon Junction police on November 1st of last year. Davis told authorities that Skaggs, who was a passenger in his vehicle, was deceased. She was pronounced dead by the Bullitt County Coroner. Autopsy results listed the cause of death as “mixed drug intoxication” from “intravenous drug use”.

According to his own testimony, Davis met Skaggs outside of Hodgenville earlier on the same date after talking with her on the Internet.

Davis and two other men were present. Skaggs allegedly self-administered a drug mixture and had a negative reaction. Davis then claims Skaggs got out of her own vehicle and collapsed. The men placed Skaggs in the passenger seat of her own vehicle and Davis decided to “drive her around” hoping she would regain consciousness. Davis said a blanket was used to cover her and that she was still breathing when they placed her in the seat. After driving for an undetermined amount of time, Davis lifted the blanket and noticed her face was blue, saying he knew she was dead at that point. Davis decided to drive toward his mother’s home in Lebanon Junction but Officer Terry Phillips initiated a traffic stop en-route.

At last week’s sentencing hearing, Circuit Judge John Seay followed the recommendation of the prosecutor by imposing a five-year sentence for a charge of reckless homicide and tampering with physical evidence. Davis also received a five-year sentence for abuse of a corpse, failure to report the death of a person and possessing drug paraphernalia. The two five-year sentences will run consecutively, for a total of a 10-year sentence.

Davis’ appointed defense attorney said his client wanted the court to know he never meant for Skaggs to be harmed and that the two were friends.  Skaggs mother was present during sentencing and asked that a letter be read to Davis. The judge denied her request but said it could be used at a future parole hearing.

PBI Bank agrees to settlement

Louisville-based PBI Bank will pay $1.25 million to resolve allegations that it violated federal law in handling a stock purchase for a Northern Indiana company’s employee stock plan.  PBI, which operates 18 banks in 12 Kentucky counties including Hart County, was acting as a trustee to Miller’s Health Systems Inc, which is an operator of retirement and assisted-living centers.

The judgment was announced last week by the U.S. Department of Labor. The agency alleged that PBI violated its duties in an “imprudent and disloyal purchase” of company stock for $40 million, a price far in excess of the stock’s fair market value. It also approved financing for the transaction at an excessive 12 percent interest rate, according the agency. PBI is required to restore losses to the employees’ plan and will be permanently barred from facilitating financial services to any stock plans except its own.  The Employee Retirement Income Security Act sets standards for pension and health plans to protect private-sector employees who participate.  Part of the settlement includes nearly $84-thousand to Miller’s Health Systems and penalties of nearly $114-thousand to the Labor Department.  The bank was pleased that the settlement agreement was “achieved outside of court, eliminating the need for a potentially expensive and burdensome trial,” said John Taylor, PBI’s president and CEO.

A statement from Taylor also noted that neither PBI nor Miller’s Health Systems acknowledged any wrongdoing and the issue will have no further impact on PBI Bank’s financial condition or operating results.  As of Sept. 30, 2014, Porter Bancorp, the bank holding company for PBI Bank, had total net loans of $615.3 million and total deposits of $933.5 million.

KY 728 Bridge work schedule update

Even with non-favorable working conditions, the KY 728 bridge over I-65 near Bonnieville is on track for completion as expected. Rains over recent weeks have made concrete pouring difficult but construction is still on track to be finished before school starts in August. KY 728 was blocked off at the bridge in early June. Bus routes were a key factor in timing of the closure. Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials worked with Hart County Schools and local emergency personnel on a plan for the closure long before the project began. Transportation Cabinet Information Officer Chris Jessie says there have only been a few problems. The original bridge was demolished to make a wider and higher clearance for 6 lanes of I-65.

Bill filed to protect county clerks and ministers

Two Republican state representatives have filed a bill that would protect county clerks from criminal or civil liability for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples because of their religious beliefs. Reps. Stan Lee, of Lexington and David Meade, of Stanford, are sponsoring the bill for the legislative session that begins in January.  At least two county clerks have stopped issuing all marriage licenses after the U. S. Supreme Court ruled same-sex marriages are legal nationwide. The American Civil Liberties Union sued Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis over the issue. That case is pending. The bill would also protect ministers from liability for refusing to perform marriage ceremonies for same-sex couples.

Crews continue search for flood victims

Rescue crews searching for victims of a Kentucky flash flood are battling mosquitoes and snakes, piles of rubble and mud so thick it sucks shoes off their feet. The rescuers recovered a third body Wednesday, but another man remains missing, three days after the flooding ravaged the rural Johnson County community. The fates of four more remain uncertain. Families reported them missing, but they may have escaped or could be stranded in their homes. Johnson County Coroner J. R. Frisby identified the body found Wednesday as 22 year-old Richard Blair. The body of 74 year-old Willa Mae Pennington was found Tuesday about a half-mile downstream. The body of 56 year-old Herman Eddie May Sr. was also pulled from the floodwaters.

Keep children out of hot cars

As the Kentucky summer is heating up, so is your car and KSP reminds parents not to leave a child alone in a hot car. It may seem like common sense, but every year law enforcement agencies answer calls about unattended children in vehicles. KidandCars.org reports that 32 children died in the U. S. during 2014 from vehicular heat stroke. In 2000, Kentucky passed "Bryan's Law," which makes a person liable for second-degree manslaughter or first-degree wanton endangerment for leaving a child younger than eight years of age in a motor vehicle where circumstances pose a grave risk of death. The law was named after 11 month-old Bryan Puckett, who died July 13th, 1999 after being left in a hot car by his babysitter.

Kentucky spokesman Sgt. Michael Webb offers the following safety tips:

* Never leave a child in an unattended car, even with the windows down.

* Be sure that all occupants leave the vehicle when unloading. Don't overlook sleeping babies. Always lock your car. If a child is missing, check the car first, including the trunk. Teach your children that vehicles are never to be used as a play area.

* Keep a stuffed animal in the car seat and when the child is put in the seat, place the animal in the front with the driver as a reminder.

* Place your purse or briefcase in the back seat as a reminder that you have your child in the car.

* Make 'look before you leave' a routine whenever you get out of the car.

Webb says while a person will face criminal charges for leaving a child in a car, the pain and guilt from making such a mistake will last far longer. KSP asks citizens to keep an eye out for children left in vehicles on hot days and to call 911 if they think the occupant is in danger.

Glasgow School closed session violation

The Ky. Attorney General says the Glasgow Independent School board operated improperly by going into closed session regarding the acceptance and name change at South Green Elementary. The office said when the school board made a decision on the proposed donation by Dr. Reddy, and decided to rename the school after him in a closed session, they violated an open meetings law. The Attorney General's decision is based on a law the school board used to go into closed session focuses on when publicity is likely to affect the value of a specific piece of property to be acquired for public use.  The release from Jack Conway's Office also states that when the board returned from closed session, they didn't make the public aware that a name change from South Green Elementary to Reddy Elementary had been approved. The Glasgow Independent School Board can appeal the Attorney General's decision.

Clerk requests online marriage licenses

A Kentucky clerk of court wants the state to issue marriage licenses online so he doesn't have to. Casey County Clerk Casey Davis says same-sex marriage violates his religious beliefs. He stopped issuing marriage licenses following the U. S. Supreme Court's ruling that legalized gay marriage.  Monday, Davis tried to meet with Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear to ask him to call for a special session of the state legislature so it can pass a law allowing people to purchase marriage licenses online, similar to the process of purchasing a hunting or fishing license. Beshear was in Louisville meeting with Humana officials. But his staff promised Davis the governor would meet with him. A spokesman for Beshear said the governor would have to evaluate Davis' proposal.

Fireworks Safety

The Fourth of July is almost here, and that means fireworks season.  Officials say the safest way to enjoy fireworks is at a public display.  But the Kentucky Fire Commission, which is part of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System in Versailles, says people who want to set off fireworks in a county where it is allowed should follow these guidelines:  Buy from a reputable dealer and follow manufacturers directions, have water nearby to extinguish discarded fireworks or for an emergency, place fireworks on a flat surface, clear of combustible materials and buildings, light one firework at a time, never point or throw fireworks at anyone, keep bystanders at least 25 feet away, don't let young children handle or ignite fireworks, store fireworks in a cool, dry place, and stop, drop and roll if your clothes catch fire.

Mammoth Cave National Park to Rehabilitate Approximately 2 Miles

Mammoth Cave National Park will rehabilitate approximately 2 miles of heavily traveled cave trail along the Historic tour route.  Those interested in bidding on the contract may visit www.FedBizOpps.gov.  The bid period closes July 17, 2015.  Most of the existing trails used on cave tours were constructed in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps.  A boardwalk and concrete paving stones were installed in the last 15 years as pilot projects to help determine the type of trail that would best suit various cave environments.  Paving stones, like those used on patios, have proved to be the most practical method.  Environmental and cultural assessments are complete.  The contract calls for construction to begin in September 2015 and continue through December 2016.  Tours will be altered during construction.

The new heroin bill that went effect this year provides for a needle exchange. It's up to local governments and local health boards to decide if they want to provide a clean needle exchange. We reached out to the Barren River District Health Department to see if they were providing a needle exchange.  A spokesperson from the department told us, "Barren River District Health Department will be facilitating community discussions in Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe, Simpson and Warren counties to assist community leaders in making a data-driven, informed decision on whether to implement the Kentucky harm reduction and syringe exchange program."  It's not clear at this time when those forums will take place.

Bat concern on I-65

Baby bats have brought one element of the ongoing widening of Interstate 65 to a halt. The Bowling Green Daily News reports the presence of northern long-eared bat pups means workers widening I-65 between Bowling Green and Elizabethtown won't be able to clear trees from the right of way for the project until August.

According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service website, the bat was listed as a threatened species in April.

Lee Andrews, a state supervisor for the wildlife agency, says removing trees serving as habitat for the northern long-eared bat is allowed for transportation projects - but not in June or July, when the pups are in trees.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokesman Chris Jessie says the tree-cutting postponement is not expected to delay the road work.

Post 3 troopers honored at Awards Ceremony

On Thursday June 11, 2015 three Troopers with the Kentucky State Police Post 3 Bowling Green were honored at the Awards Ceremony in Lexington. Troopers Ronnie Reynolds and Jeremy Smith were presented with the Lifesaving Medal, where Smith was also nominated to represent Post 3 for Trooper of the Year, while Detective Matthew Cardwell was nominated to represent Post 3 for the Detective of the Year award.

Trooper Ronnie Reynolds was presented with the Lifesaving Medal in reference to an incident that occurred on February 01, 2015 he responded to a two vehicle injury collision with entrapment in Hart County. Trooper Reynolds arrived on the scene and was the first responder on the scene. It was a horrific scene with two vehicles involved in a head-on collision. A mother and her 4 year old daughter were injured in one vehicle while a mother, both of her parents, and both of her children were all injured in the other. The 2 year old son was killed, and the 8 year old daughter was ejected from the vehicle. Upon Trooper Reynold's arrival, the little 8 year old girl was face down in the middle of the roadway in a puddle of water with water running along the roadway. It was currently raining moderately as well. The little girl was unconscious, not breathing, and had a faint pulse. Being able to determine that it was an exigent circumstance to modify the normal standard of "not moving an injured person", Trooper Reynolds turned the girl over and stabilized her neck. This enabled her airway to not be restricted thus allowing her to take in air. She began to involuntarily gulp for breath. Trooper Reynolds remained with her until EMS arrived and took control of helping her and stated that when they arrived, Trooper Reynolds called for them to tend to the girl who was stabilized on her side. EMTs stated that there was water and blood in the roadway that impeded the airway of the little girl, therefore, Trooper Reynold's actions did directly preserve the little girl's life. Any delay or awaiting of assistance would have been in all probability fatal for the young girl.  Trooper Ronnie Reynolds has been a Trooper for 12 years and has been assigned to Post 3 for all of those. He is a 1986 graduate of Hart County High School and is the son of Raymond and Judy Reynolds of Hart County.

Trooper Jeremy Smith was presented with the Lifesaving Medal in reference to an incident that occurred when he was on routine patrol in Hart County on December 26, 2012. The weather was treacherous with the temperature at 39 degrees, wind gusts at 35 mph, and moderate to heavy rain. Due to the weather conditions, Trooper Smith was checking the roadways for any possible stranded motorists. While checking I-65 in the early morning hour, Trooper Smith caught a glimpse of taillights of a vehicle off the roadway over an embankment in some trees. Trooper Smith quickly responded to the vehicle and found two occupants inside, both unconscious and trapped. Trooper Smith requested Fire and EMS for emergency response. He then determined that the passenger, a 17 year old male was slumped forward, unconscious and not breathing. Trooper Smith climbed inside the back seat of the vehicle and tilted his head back to open his airway. He was immediately able to take in air. Trooper Smith stabilized his neck keeping his airway open until EMS arrived. The Jaws of Life were used to extricate the occupants, and the injured were transported to Caverna Hospital and then on to Kosair's Hospital where they were listed in critical condition and the operator was cited for DUI. Trooper Smith was the only law enforcement officer on the scene, so this just came to light of the life-saving act when the father of the juvenile sent a delayed thank you message to Trooper Smith. Current Hart County Coroner Reggie Pettit was one of the responding Hart County EMTs that responded to the scene. Mr. Pettit advised that Trooper Smith's actions did directly preserve the juvenile’s life and any delay or awaiting of assistance would in all probability have been fatal for Mr. Perez.  Trooper Jeremy Smith was also presented with the Trooper of the Year Award to represent Post 3 Bowling Green at this year’s Award Ceremony. Smith has been a Trooper for 10 years and has been assigned to Post 3 for all of those. He is a 2001 graduate of Southwestern High School in Somerset, a 2004 graduate of Eastern Kentucky University, and is the son of Wayne and Therese (Deceased) Smith of Somerset.

Detective Matthew Cardwell was presented with the Detective of the Year Award to represent Post 3 Bowling Green. Cardwell has been a Trooper for 9 years and has been assigned as a General Investigations Detective for the last 3 years. He is a 1998 graduate of Warren East High School and is a veteran of the United States Army, where he was in the 101st Airborne Division at Ft. Campbell. He is the son of Leonard and Sharon Cardwell of Bowling Green.

Hart County man dies in shooting

A Hart County man killed after pulling gun on State Trooper died from a self-inflicted wound. Saturday night the Kentucky State Police Post 3 Bowling Green received a call at 233 Maple Grove Lane in Rowletts in reference to a female leaving the residence with her children due to the male subject firing a gun inside the residence. Trooper Justin Roundtree arrived on the scene and was attempting to make contact when the male subject, 39-year-old Jeremy Marth, of Rowletts, exited the residence through a rear window and began to flee on foot. Trooper Roundtree pursued him through the back yard where Marth produced a handgun, where both Marth and Trooper Roundtree fired a round, at which point Marth was struck in the head.

Horse Cave City Council met Monday

The Horse Cave City Council briefly discussed an ordinance last night requiring that goods and services purchased with city funds be obtained in Horse Cave when possible. Council member Allen Harper, who has suggested on several occasions that city purchases be kept local, presented the council with an ordinance proposal stating that purchases by the city are made in the city limits if the goods and services are available. If they are not available, then the purchase should be made in Hart County before spending in Barren County is considered. “We owe it to the citizens who pay taxes to do our business here,” Harper stated. Harper also said that Cave City has an executive order to purchase goods and services within the city limits whenever possible.  The Council agreed to table the ordinance and to fine tune it for discussion next month.

Michelle Hines with the BRADD Agency for Aging Services spoke to the Council about the programs her agency provides. Hines said that thirty-two 60 year or older citizens of Horse Cave are served by the Aging Department with a variety of services valued at $86,000. The Department provides services intended to keep the elderly safe and comfortable in their home. Some of the services provided include home delivered meals, respite care for caregivers and personal assistance with activities like shopping, bathing and housekeeping. The city of Horse Cave donates $750 annually to the Agency for Aging Services to help match federal grants.

The council held second readings of ordinances adopting the 2015-2016 budget and amending the 2014-2015 budget.

Horse Cave Police Officer Larry Dale Martin said the police force made seven drug arrests in May.

Fire Chief Donnie Parker reported that his department made 49 runs in May for a total of 202 so far this year. Parker requested approval to appoint a third chief-deputy of the fire department. He reported that the Horse Cave Fire Department collected $14,200 over the past couple of weekends for the Crusade for Children campaign.

Maintenance Supervisor Jimmy Martin reported that the Maple Street Park was being heavily used and that there has been a positive response to the new equipment and facilities available at the park. The department recently hired Robert Poynter part-time, chiefly to mow.

Former sheriff reports to prison

A former south-central Kentucky sheriff has reported to prison after a federal appeals court confirmed his conviction on two counts of witness tampering. The Glasgow Daily Times reports former Barren County Sheriff Chris Eaton was in custody Thursday at the Federal Correctional Institution in Oakdale, Louisiana, where he will serve an 18-month sentence. A federal jury in Bowling Green convicted Eaton in 2013 of directing two deputies to write false incident reports for the FBI. Federal investigators were probing accusations of civil rights violations during a 2010 arrest. Eaton was sentenced to 18 months in prison, but U.S. District Judge Joseph H. McKinley allowed him to remain free on bond while appealing the verdict. Eaton, who has maintained his innocence, resigned as sheriff on the eve of his sentencing.

Demolition of bridge begins Monday

Details of the KY 728 bridge closure over Interstate 65 near Bonnieville have been finalized. Local emergency response agencies were notified of the upcoming closure during an I-65 construction meeting last October and were given basic information regarding construction of a new bridge. On Monday, KYTC Engineers and the District 4 Public Information Officer met with Hart County Emergency Management officials to provide final details ahead of releasing closure information to the public.

With I-65 being widened to six lanes, a new bridge must be built. The current bridge does not allow adequate horizontal or vertical clearance from the interstate. For constructability and acceleration of build time, the contractor will close the bridge on Monday, June 1st, for  demolition. Ramps on and off of I-65 at the Exit 71 interchange will remain open. During the closure, no access to the east of I-65 will be maintained for the general public. Provisions have been made so that emergency services will be able to use a temporary median crossing.

Timing of the closure has been based on several factors including other bridges and school schedules. Currently, construction of the KY 224 bridge over I-65 at Upton is nearly complete. For sake of access east and west of the interstate, the KY 728 bridge cannot be closed until the KY 224 bridge is completed. With much of Bonnieville Elementary School’s enrollment located on the east side of the interstate, the closure was phased to minimize impacts to bus traffic. In addition to engineering challenges that would require significant time and additional resources, complete closure will allow the bridge construction period to be much shorter than maintaining one lane during construction.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Officials understand the inconvenience of the closure. The intent of the project schedule is a shorter closure duration with minimized travel impacts and a lower cost.

Mobile message boards have been placed near the bridge to alert local traffic of the upcoming closure. Work should be completed and a new bridge open to traffic by August 1st.

The Memorial Day weekend begins at 6:00 p.m. Friday, May 22nd, and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 25th. This traditionally marks the beginning of the summer driving season. KSP expects a significant increase in traffic on the state's roadways.  Statewide in 2014, during the four day Memorial Holiday weekend, seven people were killed on Kentucky's roadways. The campaign's two-week duration will be highlighted by troopers aggressively targeting those who choose not to wear seat belts or use child safety restraints. KSP will be partnering with local law enforcement agencies to conduct traffic safety checkpoints in each district. KSP utilizes traffic safety checkpoints to promote safety for motorists and to provide a deterrent for those who violate laws contained in the Kentucky Revised Statutes. For traffic safety checkpoint location in your area, please refer to the web site: kentuckystatepolice.org.  Citizens can assist by calling toll-free3 in Kentucky, 1-800-222-5555 to report any type of unsafe driving behaviors. Callers should provide the direction of travel, a description of the vehicle, and the license plate number if possible.

Horse Cave City Council met Monday

The Horse Cave City Council held a first reading to adopt their 2015-2016 budget at Monday night’s regular meeting. The $1.6 million budget includes funding for body cameras for the police force, new equipment for the maintenance department, payments on the new Fire Department building and pay increases for city employees. The city expects to collect $800,000 from the 1% payroll tax.

The Council also passed an ordinance to prohibit the burning of wood stoves in the downtown business district. They held a first reading of an ordinance to amend the 2014-2015 budget. Council member David Lindsey abstained from the wood stove ordinance.

The Council authorized seeking assistance with updating Horse Cave’s Zoning Ordinances which have not been revamped in more than 25 years. Although Hart County does not have zoning the cities of Horse Cave and Munfordville do. Horse Cave has annexed several properties at the I-65 interchange in recent years that currently have no zoning.

The Council also authorized seeking a proposal to conduct the city’s audit from an accountant outside of the local region.

Code enforcement officer Ken Russell reported there had been numerous violations in the last month, mostly for tall grass and/or trash on the property. Most of those violations have been addressed but in one instance, a property owner who declined to mow was cited and will be assessed a fee for the city having to mow.

Police Officer Larry Dale Martin reported that the Horse Cave police made 3 drug and 7 DUI arrests in April. The officers will receive their annual training and certification for the X-2 Tazers later this week. The department received nearly $11,000 in Homeland Security grants last year for body armor vests and duty weapons including the Tasers.

Fire Chief Donnie Parker said his department made 40 runs in April for a total of 153 so far this year. He also said the city’s weather siren is working again and sounds daily at noon as well as for weather warnings.

Jimmy Martin, Maintenance Supervisor, told the council that his crew is spending most of their time mowing and working on new structures at the Maple Street Park.

Mayor Randall Curry made the following committee appointments: Ricky Woodard to the Horse Cave Housing Authority; Maronda Gibson and Christy Decker to the Beautification Committee; Maronda Gibson to the Thomas House Committee; David Lindsey, Phyllis Wilcoxson, Jackie Gray, Ann Matera and Ray Carcione to the Zoning Review Committee.

Mowing season means removing signs

As mowing season approaches crews from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will begin removing signs illegally placed on state right of way. Signs already placed can be removed by the owner before the crews remove it as long as it is not placed back on state right of way. Examples of common signs removed are political, business and promotional signs that encroach on the right of way of state highways.

Crews are expected to begin mowing on May 4 and signs placed on the right of way interfere with operations and create a danger if a sign gets run over by a mower. Signs also create a safety hazard for motorists by limiting vision and adding to distracted driving.

Signs that have to be removed by crews will be taken to the local state road facility in that county. The signs will be held for pickup for two weeks before being discarded.

Tourists boost Mammoth Cave Park

In 2014, Mammoth Cave National Park generated $43.6 million and 683 jobs in the south central Kentucky area, according to a recent economic impact study by the National Park Service. Across the country, record numbers of visitors to national parks in 2014 translated into $29.7 billion in economic activity that supported nearly 277,000 jobs across the country.

Superintendent Sarah Craighead said people who visit the park need gasoline, food, lodging, and additional forms of entertainment that the park does not offer. Neighboring communities provide those services and profit from travelers on their way to Mammoth Cave.

Of the 523,000 people who visited the park last year, 413,000 toured Mammoth Cave. Visitors also come to the park to use the 85 miles of trails via hiking, biking or on horseback; canoe, kayak or fish in the Green and Nolin Rivers; camp, picnic, or take a Sunday drive and have dinner at the hotel.

A Glasgow shoplifting suspect on Thursday jumped out of a window after losing his pants.  Police said a man with reddish blonde hair was caught shoplifting by an off duty drug task force detective, when things got physical between the two up and down the aisles of the store.  After the fight, the suspect ran to the back of the Dollar General building and jumped out of a thirty feet high window.  After he fell, he ran away with a few items but also left some of his own behind.  During the scuffle the subject came out of his pants.  Police are still gathering evidence but they're asking the community to help them catch the man who's facing multiple felonies.  If you have any information on the case, call Glasgow Police at 270-651-5151.

Heavy rains cause flood warnings

A Flood Warning has been issued for several counties in the listening area including: Southwestern Hart County, Barren County, Metcalfe County, Edmonson County, along with Adair, Allen, Southeastern Butler County, Clinton, Cumberland, southern Green, Logan, Monroe, Russell, Simpson and Warren Counties until 3:00 p.m. today.   Motorists need to use caution as heavy rains have created standing water on roadways throughout the district. Areas where water doesn't normally stand are being reported as flooded. Motorists need to slow down and do not drive through high water...TURN AROUND DON'T DROWN...  It is very difficult to tell how deep the water is or if there is a strong current. The best way to avoid getting stuck or worse is to avoid high water on the roadway.  Several traffic signals have been reported to be blinking due to the storm, treat those intersections as a four-way stop. Also, motorists taking pictures of weather events, flooded roads, traffic signals or anything else while driving is very unsafe.

Drug dangers along Ky's highways

An increase in dangerous drug paraphernalia along roadsides has led the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to issue warnings to its 700 Adopt-A-Highway groups.

State officials posted a video warning to the cabinet's website in April and has added similar wording to training brochures handed out to the groups.

Adopt-A-Highway coordinator Keith Buckhout says the major dangers are the increasing number of heroin needles and mobile meth labs.

The new warnings tell groups to step back if they find such drug paraphernalia and call police or the state highway department so that specially trained crews can safely dispose of the litter.

Horse Cave City Council Meeting

The Horse Cave City Council held first readings of several ordinances Monday night including one to amend the 2014-2015 budget. Among adjustments made to the budget are a decrease of $15,000 collected in property taxes, an increase of $139,000 expected in payroll taxes and a nearly $50,000 increase in pay and benefits for police officers passed by the council last month.

The Council also held a first reading of an ordinance prohibiting the burning of woodstoves in the downtown business district. Council members also approved an inter-local agreement with Kentucky State Police for a two year extension of the current contract for dispatching for emergency services, approved an inter-local agreement with the county for equipment use and services, and approved a resolution to accept an $8000 grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission awarded to the Horse Cave Cultural District. The grant will allow the Cultural District to work towards making Horse Cave a more attractive place for businesses and shoppers. Plans include outdoor art installations such as murals; landscaping public areas in the downtown area; and integrating the energy and skills of students in the Horse Cave Arts & Science Summer Camp working with a professional artist to gain experience in art project implementation.

Sandra Wilson, Executive Director of the Horse Cave/Hart County Tourist Commission, presented her annual report. Wilson stated that the 3% lodging tax usually brings in an average of $65,000 per year into the community. Last year, even with work on the interstate, the tax brought in $75,000. She expects the amount to be even greater this year. Tourism is one of Hart County’s largest industries and is responsible for supporting nearly 500 jobs.

Kenny Russell, Code Enforcement Officer for Horse Cave, reported that most of the new cases involved garbage and trash violations. Russell stated that it is a Horse Cave ordinance that all businesses and residents of the city must subscribe to Hart County Solid Waste for weekly garbage pickup.

Police Chief Sean Henry reported that his officers made 22 drug arrests last month. Henry said these were mostly meth. arrests and that even the bulk of the DUI arrests are for drugs rather than alcohol intoxication. Henry introduced Officer Paul Reynolds who recently joined the Horse Cave force. Henry also reported that Horse Cave police officers attended training on what degree of force is appropriate to use under various situations.

Fire Chief Donnie Parker reported that his department made 34 runs in March for a total of 113 so far this year.

Maintenance Supervisor Jimmy Martin said there was an ongoing problem with pit bulls in the city limits. Of the 15 animal control calls his department responded to last month, 4 were for pit bulls, which are not allowed in Horse Cave. Martin reported that there were 159 loads brought in for the large-Item drop-off event in Horse Cave last week. He added that City Hall now must lock their dumpster because of illegal dumping and that garbage was being placed in the recycling trailers outside of City Hall. If the problem persists, the trailers will be moved to the City Maintenance building off New Street behind the Main Street Cemetery where they can be more closely supervised.

The Council approved the audit report submitted last month and will meet Monday, May 4th at 6:00 for a budget work session.

Motorist Should Prepare for Heavier Southbound Volumes on I-65

Motorist should prepare for extremely heavy southbound volumes when traveling Interstate 65 this weekend.  In recent years, slow conditions were reported on Friday going into the week when many public schools are on Spring Break.  Delays were not the result of incidents.  Volumes were simply heavier then two lanes could accomodate.  Conditions between Elizabethtown and Horse Cave were stop-and-go.  Friday afternoon seemed to be the height of volume, but heavier then usual traffic continued through the weekend and Spring Break week.  This year the KY Transportation Cabinet ask motorist to plan for similar conditions.  Weather will also be a factor.  Heavy rain is in the forecast for toady and this evening which will reduce visibility and stopping distance.  For updated travel/road conditions visit 511.ky.gov and "like" the KYTC District 4 Facebook page.  You do not have to be a member of Facebook to view the page.

88 Widening project continues

Chris Jessie, Public Information Officer with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, says widening of KY 88 west of Munfordville continues as blasting takes place to remove rock on right of way along the project.  Over the next  3 to 4 weeks, eastbound and westbound delays of up to 30 minutes will be possible near Mile Points 15 and 16 at various times. The contractor will avoid blasting during peak morning and afternoon travel times. Due to the geometry of the work area, each blast is covering the road with debris which must be removed before traffic can resume. Motorists are asked to be patient and remember the end result of construction will be a safer alignment KY 88 between Logsdon Valley Road and I-65.

Horse Cave receives KU matching grant

The city of Horse Cave has been notified of its receipt of a matching grant from KU in the amount of $3,126 toward purchasing 50 trees for the Maple Street Park Improvement Project.  The City proposes to make improvements to the area including the construction of a walking trail, a picnic pavilion with restrooms, a natural play area, and the planting of native small, medium and large trees in what is currently a minimally tree covered space.  "This grant will help us provide a beautiful canopy of trees for the new park", noted Mayor Randall Curry.  As part of our tree planting effort, the City will engage local students to plant the first tree while explaining correct tree locations and the importance of planting native Kentucky trees. Other community tree planting efforts will engage the city's volunteer beautification committee, the volunteer park committee, the Mayor and Council, and other community members who may wish to honor or remember family or friends.  And according to Ken Russell, the Park Project Coordinator, "Trees will be purchased and planted in the fall, allowing a better chance of survival and less maintenance during the first summer".  Fifty native trees to include Dogwoods (20), Redbuds (12), Willows (2), Maples (12), and Pin Oaks (4) have been chosen to complete the tree planting project.

Slight drop in gasoline last week

West Central Kentucky gas prices fell 1 cent to $2.271 according to AAA East Central's Fuel Gauge report. The national average is $2.453.  The average price of a gallon of gas during the week of March 2nd, 2015 was $2.28, while the average price per gallon a year ago was $3.43.  Other areas are reporting $2.30 per gallon in Bowling Green, $2.20 in Elizabethtown, and Louisville at $2.22 per gallon.  Retail gas prices typically trend higher this time of year as suppliers undergo maintenance and plan to reduce winter grade fuel in preparation for the changeover to summer-grade gasoline, which is more costly to produce.

Horse Cave City Council Meeting

The Horse Cave City Council voted unanimously to increase the rate of pay for each of its three police officers by $2.00 an hour. Council member Jackie Buckingham made the motion which is to take effect immediately. At last month’s meeting, the consensus was that a pay increase would be a part of the next budget cycle beginning in July.  In recent months, Horse Cave has lost two of its officers to neighboring communities who offer a higher rate of pay. Police Chief Sean Henry said the two officers who work with him average about $11 an hour prior to this raise. The pay increase will not only help retain the current police officers but will attract candidates to replace the two who recently left Horse Cave. Being able to hire additional officers will also decrease the amount of overtime the three current officers are required to work.

City Clerk Ann Matera explained that funding for the $2 increase can be taken from the city’s contingency fund which has more than $100,000. She also said the city can count on an additional $150,000 to be collected in payroll taxes for the next quarter.

 

The Council also voted to replace the flooring in the City Hall meeting room and offices with laminate wood flooring and to replace the linoleum in the bathrooms for a cost estimate of $3000. Mayor Randall Curry said the drain in the floor when the building was used as a firehouse was never sealed and is the source for unpleasant smells. The drain will be properly sealed once the carpeting is removed.

 

Cindy Greer with Campbell, Myers & Rutledge presented the council with a clean audit for fiscal year 2013-2014. Greer referred to a problem with the city’s debit card having been used to make about $1800 in unauthorized personal purchases. At the time the purchases were made, bank statements were not being reviewed each month and the purchases were not noticed for several months.

Mayor Curry said, “All the money has been paid back and the person responsible is no longer with us.”

 

Larry Jewell, Horse Cave’s appointee to the 109 Board, addressed the council. Jewell explained that the 109 Board oversees Hart County’s solid waste and recycling program. He stressed that subscribing to the garbage service is mandatory in Horse Cave. He said there are approximately 5700 garbage service customers in the county and that Solid Waste has its own $2million budget, separate from Hart Fiscal Court. In the last three years, Solid Waste has obtained $1.4 million in grant funding to help with litter abatement and dump cleanups. Jewell also pointed out that garbage fees for residential customers have not gone up in the last seven years.

Jewell stated that Solid Waste not only picks up garbage but in the last three years has removed more than 500 tons of yard waste at no charge, saving Horse Cave thousands in landfill fees. The service also provides twice-yearly large item collections, again, at no cost to the city. In recent years, Solid Waste has assisted Horse Cave in removing several structures owned by the city, at no cost. Additionally, Jewell said that Solid Waste picks up waste from Horse Cave’s industries seven days a week, allowing the city to recruit more industry.

 

Council member Allen Harper noted the need for additional lighting near the interstate exchange. Mayor Curry said he has spoken with the Transportation Cabinet and has been told to expect additional lighting after all the work at the exchange has been completed.

 

Council member David Lindsey asked why Horse Cave police vehicles are taken to Cave City for maintenance. Officer Henry responded that the cost is significantly less in Cave City than what is available in Horse Cave.

 

Fire Chief Donnie Parker said his department responded to 46 runs in February for a total of 79 runs for the first two months of the year. Parker requested that the council draft an ordinance to regulate the unsafe use of wood heating in the city limits. As an example, he said recently he observed a wood stove vented out a window rather than through a lined flue.

 

City Maintenance Supervisor Jimmy Martin reported that the city used 20 tons of salt during the two recent snowstorms.

Mayor Randall Curry said that replacing some of the city’s snow removal equipment would be a part of the next budget.

State of Emergency declared for 2nd time

Ky. Gov. Steve Beshear has declared a state of emergency for the second time in less than a month after more than 20" of snow fell overnight in some parts of the state. The declaration authorizes the National Guard to help with relief efforts and empowers state officials to close roads in the interest of public safety. A full day of rain Wednesday meant it was impossible for road crews to prepare roads in advance of the snowfall that began about 5:00 p.m. EST and continued well into this morning.  Heavy snowfall hindered road clearing efforts and Beshear urged Kentuckians to not travel if possible and to check in on elderly neighbors. A statewide declaration does not automatically close schools and businesses. Residents should check local media for closing information.

Distefano named District Athletic Director

Metcalfe County Schools Superintendent Benny Lile has announced that Peter Distefano has been named as District Athletic Director. “We posted the position after Coach Freddie Harbison informed me of his intentions to retire at the end of this year. Coach Harbison has been a valuable asset to our district for a number of years and his presence will be missed.” said Lile. The position was posted as potentially being full time and drew a number of quality applicants, several from outside the district. “When the position was first posted there was a disclaimer that budget constraints might create the need for there to be a combination of duties. In the end that is what has occurred. The current budget situation has forced us to make district wide reductions. We were fortunate to have someone of Mr. Distefano’ s knowledge and experience to accept the position. The AD responsibilities will be combined along with his current assistant principal duties. We get a quality individual along with substantial budget savings. MCHS Principal Kelly Bell has pledged her full cooperation in making this unique working situation possible” continued Lile.

Mr. Distefano expressed his pleasure at having the opportunity to assume the duties of district AD. “I was able to serve as AD for one year a few years back and enjoyed the work. Dr. Lile has a definite set of expectations for the continued development of all of our district wide athletic programs and I share those same expectations. Coach Fred has done a great job in the role. I hope to take the foundation we have and continue to build upon it.” Lile said he expects great things for the future of Metcalfe County athletics. “There are a lot of interested people in our county willing to assist in any way in order to provide our students with the best opportunities possible. I firmly believe that working together and under the direction of Mr. Distefano, we can accomplish many things.”

Distefanos duties will begin July 1, 2015. Responsibilities will include oversight and involvement of all district athletic programs at all grade levels.

Hardin County teacher sporting incident

A Hardin County Schools teacher is facing multiple charges after police say she was involved in an incident at a school sporting event.

According to John Wright, a spokesperson for the school system, it happened Thursday night during a tournament basketball game at Central Hardin High School.  Wright said Leslie McCurry, a social studies teacher at John Hardin High School, became "aggressive" with referees during the game, which was between John Hardin High School and Elizabethtown High School.  John Wright, community relations specialist with Hardin county schools, says McCurry's brother coaches one of the teams who was playing in the game and she may have gotten upset over fouls being called against his team.  Mccurry has been a teacher at John Hardin since 2003.  According to the Hardin County Detention Center's Web site, she is charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, menacing and criminal trespassing.

Statewide tornado drill Tuesday

What would you do in case of a tornado? Kentucky officials believe that's a good question to ask, and answer, on Tuesday. A statewide tornado drill is being conducted that day. A tornado warning test message will be issued at about 9:17 a.m. CST. Outdoor warning sirens will sound, weather alert radios will activate, and television and radio stations and mobile devices will broadcast the alert. If there's inclement weather that day, the drill will be rescheduled. Kentucky Emergency Management says everyone is encouraged to participate, including individuals, businesses, hospitals, nursing homes, educators and government agencies. The idea is to practice a tornado safety plan and update an emergency plan that considers all types of hazards. People who do participate are asked to complete a short survey online at kyem.ky.gov/preparedness.
