No ruling on transgender restroom mandate

A new school year is underway for most of our local communities but very little has been mentioned regarding transgender restrooms in recent weeks. In May, federal officials sent a notice to public schools that transgender students must be allowed to use restrooms consistent with their chosen gender. Despite adequate time for a ruling, a federal judge still hasn't decided on a request from 13 states, including Kentucky, to halt the Obama Administration's directive on bathroom rights for transgender students in public schools. US District Judge Reed O'Connor heard arguments on Friday in Texas seeking to halt the directive. Some states' leaders argue the directive undermines privacy safeguards for other students. In a separate ruling last week regarding a specific case, the US Supreme Court ruled that a Virginia School system has the right (for now) to block a transgender female born student from using a boys restroom. Since May, Texas and 12 other states have been asking for an expedited ruling on the issue. Judge O'Connor acknowledged the fact that schools are having to tread unknown waters with a new school year starting. He stated he would continue to work on questions he was "wrestling with" but gave no indication of when a ruling might be issued.

Hart County listed Build-Ready location

Gov. Matt Bevin announced Monday industrial sites in Horse Cave and Greenville recently joined Kentucky’s list of Build-Ready certified locations, a designation offering companies a streamlined process to quickly locate, build and begin operations. “Any time a Kentucky community establishes a Build-Ready site, it’s a great indication of future growth potential. By successfully completing the certification process, Hart and Muhlenberg counties put themselves out front in terms of welcoming industrial development,” Gov. Bevin said. “The time and cost savings that come from selecting a Build-Ready site are major selling points in attracting business to a new location. The 40-acre Horse Cave site, located in Hart County’s Progress Park, includes a 120,000-square-foot building pad. Hart County Judge Terry Martin applauded the program. “This Build-Ready site in Progress Park allows Hart County to place their industrial properties on a site that can be viewed by more businesses, developing an interest in our area that is not ordinarily available to us,” Judge Martin said. “This allows Hart County to be on the World Wide Web to showcase our location and infrastructure.” Horse Cave Mayor Randall Curry said he looks forward to working with prospect companies and securing new employment for the city and, are proud to be able to offer another opportunity to bring quality jobs to Horse Cave and Hart County.

Group opposed to students visiting Noah's ark attraction

A group opposed to a new Noah's ark attraction in Kentucky says it is warning hundreds of public schools against visiting the Ark Encounter. The Freedom from Religion Fountain says ark field trips would expose children to religious proselytizing in violation of the constitutional separation of church and state. Foundation co-president Annie Laurie Gaylor told the Lexington Herald-Leader that warning letters went to more than 1,000 school districts in Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana and West Virginia. Kentucky Education Commissioner Stephen Pruitt sent a message to school districts Monday in response saying that neither outside groups nor state education officials should dictate field trip selection. A school's site-based decision making council approves trips. The Madison, Wisconsin-based group says it heard from parents concerned their districts will organize trips to the ark.

Kids and hot cars are bad combination

Children and hot cars can quickly become a life-threatening combination, and Kentucky State Police officials want parents and caregivers to avoid such a tragedy. State police spokesman Sgt. Michael Webb advises never leaving a child in an unattended car, even if the windows are down. Make sure everybody gets out when unloading, and don't forget sleeping babies. As a reminder, leave a stuffed animal in the car seat and movie it up front when the child is in the car seat. Or put your purse or briefcase in the backseat to remind you there's a child in the car. Webb says curious children sometimes enter a vehicle on their own, so be sure to lock your car. And if a child is missing, check the car and trunk first.

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.

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.

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.

Scottsville man may face new charges

On Thursday, Jerry Spears pleaded not guilty to charges of harassment and disorderly conduct stemming from his arrest one week ago. Now, Spears could face new charges from an incident in 2013.

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.

Dana Corporation plant closing in 2017

Dana Corp. employees in Glasgow have learned the plant will close by mid-2017. The Glasgow Daily Times reports the company plans to reduce employment by half by the end of the year. The plant employs 203 people and produces gear sets, shafts and secondary gearing components for commercial vehicles.
