Terrorism defendant wants sentence vacated

A former Bowling Green resident serving a life sentence on terrorism-related charges wants to have his sentence vacated. The Daily News reports that 28 year-old Mohanad Shareef Hammadi testified in federal court Tuesday, arguing that his former attorney, James Earhart, was ineffective. Hammadi says Earhart assured him he would get a lesser sentence if he pleaded guilty to all charges in a 12-count indictment accusing him of attempting to provide resources to al-Qaida in 2011. Hammadi says a written plea agreement was not entered and contends that Earhart should not have allowed him to plead guilty without a written agreement. He argues that he had little knowledge of the legal process or the English language. Earhart says he advised Hammadi the government was going to ask for a life sentence.

Traffic Advisory for Western Kentucky

A traffic advisory has been issued for several major roads in Western Kentucky. Bridge work today for the Exit 91 bridge over I-65 will result in several impacts to traffic. Barrier wall will be set across eastbound and westbound Western Kentucky Parkway bridges and traffic will be reduced to one lane in both directions. Westbound traffic on the Lincoln Parkway to the Western Kentucky Parkway will be reduced to one lane between Sportsman's Lake Road and US 31W so traffic will be in a one lane pattern ahead of the US 31W intersection. A single westbound lane will remain in place until the end of the bridge over I-65. The left turn lane from Lincoln Parkway to southbound US 31W will remain open and will be marked using barrels. The westbound ramp to Northbound I-65 will be marked using barrels as well. Northbound I-65 traffic getting off to the Western Kentucky Parkway westbound must stop before merging into one lane traffic. Message boards, multiple signs and flashing lights will be installed to notify traffic of this movement. Eastbound traffic on the Western Kentucky Parkway will be reduced to one lane between the KY 1136 bridge and I-65. Southbound I-65 traffic exiting to Western Kentucky Parkway eastbound must stop before merging into one lane traffic. These traffic impacts will be in place through June 30th.

At this time the suspect fired a gun multiple times and in response Deputy Dean Crumbaugh returned fire with his firearm.

The suspect, John Williams (61) of Hiseville, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Barren County Coroner’s Office and an autopsy is set to be performed today at the Medical Examiner’s Office in Louisville.

Summertime safety tips

Temperatures are heating up and families are busy throughout the summer season.  That calls for some extra precautions for you and your family. One of the most important steps to summer heat safety, is never leaving a child unattended inside a vehicle. Always remember to place something of importance in the back seat as a reminder to turn around and check before getting out of your vehicle and when driving a larger SUV, don't neglect a quick glance at the 3rd row seat.  For your personal safety if working outdoors during high temperatures, always stay hydrated with water or gatorade, taking frequent breaks, wear light colored clothing and use the sunscreen as needed. Keep a check on elderly neighbors and remember to provide

plenty of water and shade for livestock as well as pets.

After 19 people trudged through neck-deep water to escape a flooded Kentucky, the cave's operator says he's analyzing the incident for possible safety lessons. David Foster is executive director of the American Cave Museum, which runs the Hidden River Cave. he said he had no way to reach the group of students spelunking a mile deep in the caverns Thursday afternoon to warn them that the water was rising and threatening to block their only exit.

This stranded the cavers in a portion of the cave called the “The Attic”, which has a higher ceiling, where they stood by until the water rose to where they decided to attempt to make their way out of the cave. At approx. 3:00 pm two Horse Cave Police Department officers entered the cave in an attempt to make contact with the subjects stranded when they met four individuals coming out. Emergency personnel also responded to the scene and assisted. At approx. 4:30 pm all subjects had exited the cave without injury. The tour guide was able to lead them to safety.

Glasgow council seeks lower rates for seniors

The Council approved a measure Monday night to revert people 65 and older back to the 2015 rate. City Councilman Wendell Honeycutt stated that "he felt people their were 65 and older and people that are totally disabled, mostly living on a fixed income, needed a break." A new pat structure began in January that has a lower rate except for the one hour a month where the most electricity is used. Glasgow Mayor Dick Doty says he has talked to many people who say their bill has went down since the change and that it isn't designed for the electric plant board to make more money. The council has no legal authority over the EPB, the recommendation is a hope the board will reconsider the changes.

Six diagnosed with Zika virus in Kentucky

State officials say six people, including at least one pregnant woman, have been diagnosed with the Zika virus in Kentucky. All of the confirmed cases got the disease while traveling abroad to Zika-infected areas. State health officials say, so far no one has contracted the virus in Kentucky. But Health and Family Services Secretary Vickie Yates Brown Glisson said it is "very possible" the disease will spread in Kentucky this summer unless people take precautions against mosquitoes. Officials recommend eliminating standing water, wear insect repellent and to keep gutters clean so water can run freely. The Zika virus is rarely fatal and most people do not show symptoms. But if women are infected during pregnancy, the infants can be born with serious defects, including microcephaly, a condition where the baby's head is smaller than normal.

There are moving personal interviews, family photos, historic footage, and present day scenes of places in the park that were once home sites.”

"WKU-PBS is proud to be able to bring the history of the Mammoth Cave region to television,” said Beckley. “These stories are both poignant and important to understanding this part of Kentucky. We greatly appreciate our community partners who made this program possible."

Additional support for Mammoth Cave: A Place Called Home came from the Mammoth Cave National Park Association; the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet; and Friends of Mammoth Cave National Park.

Local showings of Mammoth Cave: A Place Called Home are scheduled:

LG&E and KU customers receive scam calls

Louisville Gas & Electric Company and Kentucky Utilities say their customers are being targeted in a telephone scam. The utilities said Wednesday that the calls involve someone leaving a message directing the customer to a fake number that sounds like LG&E's and KU's automated phone system. In some cases, the caller ID has been altered to indicate the call is coming from LG&E and KU when it isn't. The utilities say other fraud schemes in the past have involved callers seeking immediate payment or e-mails stating a past due amount and directing the recipient to click a link. LG&E and KU say they don't call and ask for credit or debit card numbers or other personal information. The companies ask their customers to let them know of any suspicious activity.

Statewide tornado drill Tuesday morning

The statewide tornado drill is set for Tuesday morning, February 23rd, at 9:07 CST.

Emergency management says, “Outdoor warning sirens will sound across communities; weather alert radios will activate; and television and radio stations and mobile devices will broadcast the alert – allowing the public the opportunity to practice tornado safety measures.

The broadcast test message will emphasize that it’s only a test of the alert system. Officials say when the alert is activated, all Kentuckians, businesses, hospitals, nursing homes, educators and government agencies should practice their tornado safety drill.

Emergency management says severe weather preparedness begins with knowing the risks:

• Understand the type of hazardous weather that can affect where you live and work, and how the weather could impact you and your family.

• Stay aware of the local weather forecast. Get a NOAA Weather Radio for your home and office. Download an app for your smartphone that will give you local severe weather alerts. Access a local weather forecast in the morning and the evening – more often if severe weather is forecast.

• Develop a personal and family emergency plan that considers all types of local hazards.

Emergency management says your severe thunderstorm/tornado safety plan should include:

• Locate a tornado shelter place in an interior room on the lowest level of a building, away from windows. The ideal place is a basement or a closet or bathroom with no windows.

• Tell everyone where the designated shelter is and practice gathering there. Don’t forget to bring pets into the shelter room with you, if possible.

• Bring a battery-powered radio and smartphone with you into the shelter so you know when the danger of severe weather has passed.

To conduct a tornado drill at home or work:

• Announce the start of the drill.

• Participants should act as though a tornado warning has been issued for the immediate area or a tornado has been sighted nearby. They should move as quickly as possible to the designated tornado shelter.

• Once people reach predesignated safe areas, they should crouch

as low as possible to the floor, facing down, covering their heads with their hands.

• Once everyone has reached safe shelter, announce the mock tornado has passed and the drill is complete.

• After the drill, perform an assessment. Determine whether the shelter you chose was large enough for everyone, easy to get to and uncluttered. Is the shelter suitable for those who have impaired mobility or other disabilities?

Officials say during severe weather, if you are caught outdoors and unable to seek indoor shelter, you should lie flat in a nearby ditch or depression and cover your head with your hands.

Sentencing holds for drunken driver

It was an emotional day at the Warren County Justice Center. One month after her jury trial, Kathy Keller made a final appearance before a judge. Keller was convicted of drunk driving with a .18 blood alcohol level with her two children in the car, colliding with a motorcycle driven by Alex Harkins. Harkins died from injuries he sustained in the collision.  His mother, Denease Harkins got her chance to speak before the judge about the hardship of losing her son. Keller was requesting that her sentence of 12 years be lowered to 10 years.  Judge John Grise ultimately held up a jury's recommendation of 12 years on charges that include manslaughter, allowing a family a little closure on a wound that will never fully heal.  As part of her sentencing, Keller will also be prohibited from having any type of contact with the Harkins family.  Keller's 12 year sentence also includes convictions on charges of wanton endangerment and DUI.

Westlake Regional Hospital now known as TJ Health Columbia

In 2013, Westlake Regional Hospital declared bankruptcy, but with the purchase by T.J. last week, the future of health care in Adair County looks brighter. Adair County Judge/Executive Michael Lee Stephens says even though the hospital saw hard times, there was never a time that he felt the facility would close. The hospital's staff has been cut from 115 employees to just over 70. After the downsize, those employees were offered jobs in Glasgow. T.J. Regional Health CEO Bud Wethington says the community must embrace the new day health care.  TJ Samson says the facility in Columbia will see some changes, but right now it's too early in the planning stages to know what those changes will be.  With the purchase of Westlake, TJ Regional Health will also take over the hospital's clinics, which would mean the company will own two clinics in Edmonton that will consolidate.

Phone scams reported in Kentucky

Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear warned that scammers have called dozens of Kentuckians, pretending to be a deputy and claiming they have a federal warrant for their arrest. They offer to resolve the issue, for a small price. Sheriffs in counties across the state joined Beshear in cautioning citizens not to fall for the trick. The number of reports has spiked over the last month. Jefferson County Sheriff John Aubrey said his office alone gets as many as 50 reports a week. Beshear said law enforcement does not contact people over the phone to inform them of federal warrants and never asks for money. Anyone who receives one of these calls is advised to hang up and contact their local sheriff's office or the Attorney General at 888-432-9257.

Residents urged to get flu vaccine

State health officials are urging residents in Kentucky to get the flu vaccine now if they haven't already had it. Dr. Kraig Humbaugh, senior deputy commissioner of the Kentucky Department for Public Health, said in a statement that there have been reports of severe flu symptoms in young and middle-aged adults even though the virus hasn't yet peaked this season.  Humbaugh said now is a good time to get the vaccine since it takes about two weeks for immunity to develop. health officials report the flu activity level in Kentucky is "regional," which means outbreaks have been reported in less than half the state. Flu season usually begins in October and can last through May.

Phone scam reported in Hart County

Phone scammers seem to be on the rise in south central Kentucky. One Hart County woman decided to beat them at their own game by calling them back. Beth Smith received a voicemail from a number claiming to be the IRS. After being concerned about the information in the call, she decided to call them back. Smith said she was told she owed over $9,000 to the IRS, and if not paid, she would be arrested, her property seized and assets frozen. She was frightened, but didn't fall for it. Smith advised that her attorney would be contacting them, that's when the caller hung up. She said it was scary to realize all the information they knew about her, although she had told them nothing.  A google search of the number (360) 976-4409 shows it originates in Castle Rock, Washington and others have been scammed by the same number.

Unused grant money to be returned

Ky unused grant money to be returned to federal Federal officials say Kentucky could have to return more than $57 million in unused grant money because of Republican Gov. Matt Bevin's decision to dismantle kynect.  A $289 million dollar federal grant was given to Kentucky to plan and establish kynect, a health exchange where Kentuckians can purchase private insurance plans with the help of a federal subsidy. State officials have spent all of it except for $57.5 million.  In January, a letter from Acting Administrator Andrew Slavitt of the federal Department of Health and Human Services to Bevin said state officials cannot use that money to move the state to the federal exchange. The money would have to be returned.  Bevin spokeswoman Jessica Ditto said state officials would return any unused money.

Rep. Bell not seeking re-election

A member of the Kentucky House Democratic leadership team says he has decided not to seek re-election. State Rep. Johnny Bell's decision could complicate efforts by Democrats to hold their fragile House majority. The Glasgow Democrat said Monday he has business interests he needs to tend to at home. Bell serves as House majority whip, a role that includes rounding up votes for bills supported by Democratic House leadership. Due to recent departures and party switches, Democrats are clinging to a 50-46 advantage in the House, with four vacant seats. Special elections are scheduled for March 8th to fill those seats. Republicans have not held power in the House in nearly a century. Bell's announcement comes a day before the filing deadline for candidates to run in the primary and general elections this year.

Legislation filed for increase of minimum wage

House Speaker Greg Stumbo filed legislation today that would provide the first increase to Kentucky's minimum wage in nearly seven years. Under his House Bill 278, the state's minimum wage would rise in three steps, each less than a dollar a year, from the current $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour by July 2018.

Information compiled last year by the Legislative Research Commission, the General Assembly's administrative arm, found that about 391,000 Kentuckians earn less than $10.10 an hour. About 60,000 of those earn the minimum wage or less.

In addition to raising the minimum wage, Speaker Stumbo's bill also provides help to some of the state's smallest businesses currently exempt from the state's minimum wage law. The current limit of $95,000 in gross sales, which hasn't changed since 1976, would rise to $500,000 and would apply to retail stores, service industries, hotels and restaurants.

House Bill 278 has a gender-equity provision as well, to prohibit discrimination based on sex, race or national origin. This would apply in those industries dominated by a particular sex, race or national origin, and would allow wage differentials based on merit, seniority and productivity.

Winter travel tip from Kentucky State Police

Kentucky State Police have some advice for people traveling during winter weather conditions. The agency says don't travel at all unless it's necessary when winter weather is in your area. If it's necessary, check road conditions by calling 511, drive slowly and wear your seat belt. Police say allow extra time, leave extra distance between vehicles because it's harder to stop on icy or snowy roads, clear all vehicle windows before starting out, turn on headlights, use caution on bridges and overpasses and avoid using cruise control. Before taking off, be sure your gas tank is full and cell phone is charged, take a blanket and let someone know your travel plans. if you're involved in a wreck, be patient because there may be additional requests for law enforcement. Try to move your vehicle out of the road if the wreck is minor.

Glasgow sergeant disciplinary hearing

A disciplinary hearing was held Monday night as Glasgow police sergeant fought for his job. Glasgow Police Chief Guy Howie placed Sgt. Mike Burton, a six-year veteran of the Glasgow police Department, on unpaid leave and recommended him for termination January 5th on allegations that Burton violated standard operating procedures of the department. The alleged infractions include two counts of violation of the code of ethics, two counts of violation of conduct unbecoming a police officer an done count of sexual harassment. As part of the sexual harassment charge, he is also accused of creating a hostile work environment. Burton asked as a part of the Police Officer Bill of Rights to have Monday's disciplinary hearing in front of the entire Glasgow City Council. Instead, Mayor Dick Doty, who hired Howie, was the only elected official to hear the proceeding. After more than two hours of testimony from several police officers, Doty announced that he would render a final decision by the close of business Friday. Just weeks after returning from an active-duty military deployment, Burton was placed on leave as the result of an internal affairs investigation conducted by Capt. Tony Morgan. The investigation began after Burton is said to have received a cell phone screen shot of a partially nude female. That photo is alleged to be of a female police officer that was sent to the female officer's supervisor.

Horse Cave City Council Meeting

Horse Cave resident Paul Grider announced to the Horse Cave City Council that the church he pastors has a purchase contract to acquire the Horse Cave Theatre building. The Way, founded a little over a year ago, is involved in local, regional and international outreach but has been temporarily meeting at the Cave City Convention Center. Grider explained that dual needs will be fulfilled by purchasing the building: The Way will find a permanent home for its 150 member congregation and the theatre will be resurrected and revitalized as a performing arts center to serve artists and the local community.

Brent Morrison, youth leader at The Way, also spoke to the council about the forthcoming purchase. Morrison was one of the actors who performed in what ended up being the last show before Horse Cave Theatre closed its doors three years ago. Both Grider and Morrison pointed to their experiences at the theatre in their youth as positively influencing the people they became as adults.

Grider and Morrison said they envision a return of theatre workshops, young performer’s productions, a short season of plays, musical events and community and school outreach and involvement. Grider said the stage would be available for both Christian as well as secular performances.

Grider said he expects the sale to take place in the next couple of weeks, although he added that it could take a while before necessary repairs and restoration are completed.

 

In other business, the council approved the purchase of a 4-wheel drive tractor for the maintenance department. Supervisor Jimmy Martin reported that his crew opened 57 gravesites and made 156 animal runs in 2015. The Maintenance department is building swing sets for Maple Street Park, improved lighting and layout in the Horse Cave Library and recently conducted a sweep of the city to issue warnings to residents leaving their animals outside during the extremely cold weather. Martin said the city has plenty of salt on hand for winter precipitation.

 

Police officer L.D. Martin told the council that the arrests the department made in December included 2 for assault, 10 for domestic violence, 8 for alcohol and 7 for methamphetamine as well as one Class A felony arrest for the sexual abuse of a child.

 

Fire Chief Donnie Parker reported that his department made 48 runs in December for a total of 513 for the year. Of those, 315 were medical runs and 12 were for structure fires. Parker stated that the fire which destroyed the southbound I-65 rest area was investigated by the state fire marshal and was determined to have been an electrical fire. The rest area not only provided relief services to travelers and parking for tractor trailers but distributed local and regional tourism information.

 

Mayor Randall Curry announced that the city has paid off the loan for the brush truck three years early and was on track to pay off the pumper truck at a considerable savings on interest.

 

Magistrate Ricky Alvey has arranged a meeting between Horse Cave officials and the Department of Fish and Wildlife to discuss what can be done about the buzzard roost in Horse Cave. The buzzards are a protected species and can be scared off with noise which only temporarily moves them from their roost.

 

The Council went into a brief closed session to discuss possible litigation but took no action.

Lawmaker proposes social media ban

A Campbellsville lawmaker has proposed a bill that would bar people from posting information identifying people involved in life-threatening events on social media for one hour. The Lexington Herald-Leader said the sponsor, Republican state Rep. John Carney, didn't respond to requests for comment Monday. Pulaski County Public Safety Director Tiger Robinson, who has spoken to Carney about the bill, told the newspaper it's meant to stop posts in real time about car crashes and other life-threatening incidents while officials respond to the scene. The bill would make exceptions for the news media, victims of the event and emergency responders at the event. First Amendment expert and Louisville lawyer Jon Fleischaker says he thinks the bill amounts to "prior restraint" and is unconstitutional. The bill proposes fines ranging from $20 to $100 per incident.

Funtown Mountain is now in foreclosure

South Central Bank and the Kentucky Tourism Development Finance Authority (KTDFA) have filed suit against Land of Tomorrow, the LLC that actually bought the Cave City property to recoup money they lent to finance the purchase of the Guntown Mountain amusement park in Cave City. Will Russell, the face of Land of Tomorrow Productions LLC, has filed bankruptcy in connection with the amusement park.  Previously, the two plaintiffs had wanted to consolidate the two suits, but that motion was withdrawn Monday in Barren Circuit Court. An attorney representing South Central Bank said that her client felt that was not in their best interest to consolidate, but they would like to sell both properties on the same day with the master commissioner's sale.
