Judge rules enough evidence for murder

A preliminary hearing was held Tuesday in the Barren County District Courtroom in the case of the Commonwealth of Kentucky vs. John William Amis.  The Commonwealth Attorney John Gardner addressed the Court first and questioned the state’s sole witness, Detective Eric Cowan.

Cowan testified that on June 16th of this year Amis called 911 Dispatch advising he was on his way to T. J. Samson Hospital with his wife who had potentially overdosed.  On the 17th, one day after Lobombard was pronounced dead, an autopsy was conducted and the cause of death was determined to be blunt force trauma. The medical examiners report also listed injuries as ‘acute’, and stated they could have been obtained anywhere from 24-48 hours prior to being dropped off at T. J.  Cowan was cross-examined by Amis’s attorney Greg Berry. After hearing both sides Judge John Alexander ruled that there was enough evidence to present the MURDER charge before the Grand Jury, but there was insufficient evidence to proceed with a charge of TAMPERING WITH PHYSICAL EVIDENCE. Judge Alexander did add that additional testimony could be presented before the grand jury to result in an additional charge.  Judge Alexander also denied the request to lower the bond amount. Bond for Amis is currently set at $1million cash. A decision from the Grand Jury is expected in the next few weeks.

A family in Hardin County are facing charges after a 17-month-old baby was rushed to the hospital and tested positive for amphetamines.  After questioning by Elizabethtown Police Department and Child Protective Services, the child's parents and a grandmother have been arrested and jailed.  Authorities questioned Jessica M.

Never leave child alone in vehicle

With summer temperatures heating up across the country - parents and caregivers are reminded to never leave a child unattended inside a vehicle. heatstroke is the leading cause of non-crash, vehicle-related deaths for children. On average, every 10 days a child dies from heatstroke in a vehicle.  On an 80 degree day, the inside of a car can quickly exceed 100 degrees. Cracking a window does not help keep the inside of a car cool.  Children are at great risk for heatstroke because a child's body heats up three to five times faster than an adult's. Avoid heatstroke-related injury and death by never leaving your child alone in a car, and make sure to keep your car locked when you're not in it so kids don't get in on their own. Create reminders by putting something in the back of your car next to your child, such as a purse or cell phone.  And, take action, if you see a child alone in a car, call 911.  One call could save a life.

Passage expected for I-65 widening

Widening of I-65 should continue as planned once congress passes a new Highway Trust Fund plan.  A House version easily passed across party lines earlier this week which basically extends the agreement now in place. The current version expires at the end of September. This plan reimburses states for federally funded highway projects. The main source of funding is the national fuel tax that consumers pay at the pump. The White House is urging support for the House version. Leaders in Washington say the Senate will likely vote by the end of July and passage is expected. Chris Jessie, Public Information Officer with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says passage will keep I-65 construction on schedule.  Currently, widening of I-65 is in progress from Cave City to Munfordville. Completion of the section from Cave City to Horse Cave is expected late this year. The section from Horse Cave to Munfordville will be completed in 2016.

A federal judge has ruled that a former Barren County Sheriff's Deputy violated the constitutional rights of a man under arrest. U. S. District Judge Joseph McKinley found that Adam Minor used excessive force on Billy Stinnett after a 2010 chase.  The Daily News reported the decision is the latest in the long-running case involving former Barren County Sheriff Chris Eaton and other officials.  Stinnett claimed in a civil suit filed in federal court in 2011 that Eaton, Minor and other officers struck him or failed to intervene when others struck him after he was arrested. The incident led to federal criminal charges against five officers, with Minor pleading guilty to providing false information to federal investigators and Eaton convicted of two counts of witness tampering.

Fewer people seeking unemployment benefits

Fewer people sought U. S. unemployment benefits last week, driving down the level of applications to nearly the lowest in seven years. The Labor Department says weekly applications for unemployment aid dropped 11,000 to a seasonally adjusted 304,000. That's not far from a reading of 298,000 two months ago, which was the lowest since 2007, before the Great Recession began. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, kipped 3,500 to 311,500, the second-lowest level since August 2007. Applications are a proxy for layoffs, so the low readings indicate that employers are letting go of fewer workers. The figures are the latest sign that the job market is steadily improving. Employers are adding jobs at a healthy clip and the unemployment rate is at a 5 1/2 year low.

Heyburn in Louisville concluded in Tuesday's ruling that the state's prohibition on same-sex couples being wed violates the Equal Protection Clause of the U. S.

Police warn not to leave children in cars

With temperatures on the rise, Kentucky State Police officials are reminding parents not leave children alone in hot cars. It seems like common sense, but every year law enforcement agencies answer calls about unattended children in vehicles. The National Safety Council says nine children have died in 2014 from being left in hot cars across the country. KSP spokesman Sgt. Michael Webb says a child's body heats up three to five times faster than that of an adult. 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 8 in a vehicle where circumstances pose a grave risk of death.  The law was named after an 11 month-old who died after being left in a hot car.

Hemp crop testing in Kentucky

Hemp has turned into a legitimate test crop in Kentucky after a legal battle over imported seeds. Researchers are planting seeds to start gauging the potential for the non-intoxicating cousin of marijuana. University of Kentucky agronomy researchers planted a small plot Tuesday in central Kentucky. The seeds were part of a shipment released after a legal standoff between Kentucky's Agriculture Department and the federal government. Another test hemp plot affiliated with Murray State University in western Kentucky has has also been planted. Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner James Comer says the research will eventually lead to new jobs and farm income. The new federal farm bill allows state agriculture departments to designate hemp pilot projects for research in states that allow hemp growing. Kentucky is at the forefront of the comeback.

City Council ousted Hodgenville mayor

A City Council in central Kentucky has ousted the mayor following his indictment on charges of theft and abusing public trust.  The News-Enterprise reports Hodgenville City Council members voted unanimously Thursday night to remove Mayor Terry L. Cruse from office after a daylong hearing.  The decision stemmed in part from a state police investigation of Cruse and City Clerk MaDonna Hornback that led to criminal charges. A grand jury indictment issued in December accuses both of using a city-issued fuel credit card to make personal purchases and taking money from the city. Cruse and Hornback have denied the allegations.  After removing Cruse, the officials appointed Councilman Kenny DeVore as interim mayor.

Use of Food Stamps Rises in Hart County

By Emily Guerin and Tim Marema

The use of food stamps in Hart County increased during the recession, assisting families in stretching their food dollars, contributing to local spending and helping spark a national debate about the future of the federal nutrition program.  The proportion of Hart County residents receiving food stamps hit 22.9 percent in 2011, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Services. That’s an increase of 4.7 percentage points since 2007, the year the recession started.

Across Kentucky, 19.3 percent of residents in 2011 received support from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), as the food stamp program is officially known. Nationally, 14.8 percent of the population receives SNAP benefits.

Places like Hart County, which are located outside metropolitan areas, tend to have a higher percentage of the population receiving SNAP benefits. That’s because incomes are generally lower in nonmetropolitan counties.

The inflation-adjusted median household income in Hart County in 2011 was $32,808, compared to the Kentucky median of $42,610. Nationally, median household income was $52,306 in 2011.

In 2011, residents of Hart County received a combined $6,494,958 in SNAP benefits. The USDA reports that each $5 in SNAP benefits generates $9.20 in spending.

SNAP benefits start to circulate in the economy quickly. Participants spend nearly all their food stamps within one month of receipt, according to a study by the University of New Hampshire Carsey Institute.

Grocers say they feel the impact of SNAP and other USDA nutrition programs like Women, Infants and Children (WIC).

“Without SNAP and WIC, we wouldn’t be able to make it,” wrote the owner of the Mill City Market in the small town of Mill City, Ore., in a survey of rural grocers conducted by the Oregon Food Bank and Kansas State University Rural Grocery Initiative.

Owners know they have to stock the shelves to prepare for more business when SNAP benefits hit the streets, said David Procter with the Rural Grocery Initiative

It’s not just the mom-and-pop stores that see a bump from food-stamp spending in small towns and rural areas. Walmart reported in a recent Securities and Exchange Commission filing that a decrease in SNAP benefits last year could affect the retail giant’s bottom line.

Average SNAP benefits nationally fell about $30 a month per family in November after a temporary increase that was part of the 2009 economic stimulus package. More funding decreases are on the way.

This summer, Congress agreed to trim about $8 billion from SNAP over the next decade. Backers of the cuts said the program had expanded too much in recent years and was creating too much reliance on government assistance. SNAP expenditures increased 135 percent between 2007 and 2011.

U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor (Va.-R) backed a measure that would have removed SNAP from the farm bill entirely.

“While [SNAP] is an important part of our safety net, our overriding goal should be to help our citizens with the education and skills they need to get back on their feet so that they can provide for themselves and their families,” Rep. Cantor said during congressional debate.

Food stamps have been part of the farm bill for the past 50 years. The legislation’s combination of farming and nutrition programs has helped ensure the bill receives broad backing from farm-country representatives and more urban-based members who support anti-poverty programs.

That alliance was tested but held with the passage of the 2014 farm bill.

Accident in construction zone injures two people

On Sunday, at approximately 2:19 a.m., Kentucky State Police Post 3 received the report of a single vehicle injury collision, southbound on I-65, near the 65.5 mile marker, in the construction zone.  The preliminary investigation by Trooper Wesley Medley indicates that Matthew T. Wright (20) of Columbia, TN was traveling southbound in a 2007 Dodge Dakota, when he briefly fell asleep at the wheel. Upon waking up, Wright overcorrected which caused his vehicle to veer across both southbound lanes. The vehicle then struck the end of a concrete barrier and traveled through a break in the concrete median wall, which allows access for construction vehicles. The vehicle's left side then dropped down approximately 1 foot off of the newly paved surface, onto a gravel bed, and overturned.  Matthew T. Wright and his passenger Brandi C. Duke (19) also of Columbia, TN were transported to Caverna Memorial Hospital for treatment of their injuries. Trooper Wesley Medley is investigating this collision and he was assisted on scene by the Munfordville Police Dept., Hart County EMS and the Munfordville Fire Dept.

Outbreak of Pertussis confirmed locally

Local public health officials have confirmed an outbreak of pertussis, also known as whooping cough, in the Barren River area. All age groups are susceptible to the illness which is a contagious respiratory disease caused by a bacteria. It most commonly affects infants and young children and can be fatal, especially in babies less than one year of age. The main symptoms are; a cough that lasts for weeks or months and coughing fits. The best way to prevent pertussis (whooping cough) is to make sure infants and children are up-to-date on their immunizations. Pregnant women and anyone who will be around babies should be vaccinated, as infants often get pertussis from a family member.  Other measures of prevention are to practice  good cough etiquette and keep infants and anyone at high risk for pertussis complications away from infected people.  Those at high risk for pertussis complications away from infected people. Those at high risk are pregnant women, infants less than one year of age, anyone with lung or heart conditions and those who have weakened immune systems. At this time, with pertussis circulating in the community, you're asked to pay special attention to the health of your children, yourself, and your family. People with pertussis are contagious and need to contact their healthcare provider for appropriate testing and treatment.

Hemp crops planted next month

Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner James Comer says the state's first hemp crop in decades will be planted next month. Comer said Tuesday he expects hemp seeds to start arriving soon at the state Agriculture Department.  he says eight pilot projects are planned as the crop that once thrived in Kentucky is reintroduced on a small scale. The new federal farm bill allows state agriculture departments to designate pilot projects fro research in states that allow the growing of hemp.  Kentucky lawmakers passed legislation last year allowing hemp to be reintroduced, if the federal government allows its production.  The versatile crop was banned decades ago due to its ties to marijuana.  Hemp and marijuana are the same species, but hemp has a negligible content of the psychoactive compound that gives marijuana users a high.

Disease affecting cave-dwelling bats

The disease that has killed more than 6 million cave-dwelling bats in the United States is on the move, and wildlife biologists are worried.  At Mammoth Cave National Park, a sign lets visitors know they will have to walk on bio-security mats after touring the largest known cave system in the world. Shoes must be scrubbed to help contain the spread of white-nose syndrome. The disease was discovered in New York in 2006 and has spread to 25 states, as far south as near Atlanta and five Canadian provinces. In Tennessee and elsewhere, some caves are closed to the public. Biologists don't believe the disease poses a health risk to humans, but some say the loss of bats could cost farmers and the economy billions of dollars.

Hospital reducing staff and pay

Hospital officials at T. J. Samson say the recent staff reduction is not temporary and they will continue to adapt to this new, more challenging environment.  Officials say the Affordable Care Act along with a software system problem has cost the organization an estimated tens of millions of dollars.  According to Kynect statistics on the governor’s website, Kentucky agreed to expand Medicaid eligibility for residents and accept federal help to do so. The rolls have grown by more than 300,000. Barren County had more than 3,200 new Medicaid enrollees, and there are another 2,100 in neighboring Metcalfe and Monroe counties.  Hospital officials say those who were laid off will receive their benefits through April 2014. The hospital will pay half of their cobra insurance during May 2014.
