UNITED WAY “FEED THE NEED”

United Way of Southern Kentucky (UWSK) is currently holding a region wide food drive aptly titled “Feed the Need” in Allen, Barren, Butler, Hart, Logan, Simpson, and Warren counties that will end on March 18th.

“Feed the Need” started in 2009 in response to the increased need in our communities for access to basic needs, especially food. After speaking with the local food pantries that have benefited from the drive in previous years, it is clear that assistance in providing a Safety Net of services like access to food is needed once again this year. Since its inception in 2009, “Feed the Need” has now collected more than 467,000 items for local food pantries to be distributed to individuals and families in need in Southern Kentucky. Companies, organizations, and groups in Allen, Barren, Butler, Hart, Logan, Simpson and Warren Counties can participate once again by holding internal food drives starting anytime and ending on March 17th.

Volunteers are also needed to pass out flyers and collect donations at participating grocery stores March 17th (10am – 6pm) and March 18th (9am – 1pm). Participating grocery stores include select Houchens Market, Kroger, WalMart, Dollar General Market, Piggly Wiggly, Food Lion, Save-a-Lot, Priceless IGA, and Crossroads IGA stores in each county. Volunteers are also needed at most collection sites in each county to assist with sorting and counting donations.

All donations will benefit food banks in the county in which the donations are collected.

If you are interested in helping to “Feed the Need” by volunteering to run an internal food drive within your company, group, organization, school, or church, or at an in-store drive, sign up by logging onto the United Way of Southern Kentucky website at www.liveunitedtoday.com.

Bible class proposals in Ky public schools

Kentucky public schools would have to offer a course about Bible history and require students to pass a civics test before graduating under a pair of proposals that are advancing in the state Senate. The Senate Education Committee voted overwhelmingly to approve Senate Bills 138 and 159 on Thursday. Senate Bill 159 would require students to pass a civics test before graduating. It would be the same test immigrants must pass before becoming U. S. Citizens. Senate Bill 138 would require schools to offer an elective social studies course on the Bible, both the Old Testament and the New Testament. Democratic Sen. Robin Webb said the Bible is critical to understanding the culture and history of the United States.

Some will pay more under Governor's proposal

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Republican Gov. Matt Bevin said some people will have to pay more under a proposal to overhaul the state's tax code.

Bevin said during his annual State of the Commonwealth Address that he will call a special session of the state legislature later this year to change how the state collects taxes. Bevin said the proposal will not be "tax neutral." He said the state needs more money to pay off its public pension debt, which he estimated to be more than $80 billion.

Bevin also vowed to bring charter schools to Kentucky, reward publicly funded colleges and universities for turning out more graduates for engineering and manufacturing jobs and appoint a "czar" to oversee the state's foster care and adoption system. Bevin, who has four adopted children, said he wants Kentucky's foster care and adoption system to be a model for the nation.

Glasgow City Council can remove utility board members

Kentucky's Attorney General Andy Beshear says Glasgow City Council has the authority to remove board members of the Glasgow Electric Plant Board. The city and board members of EPB have been at odds for months over customers' rate and billing service issues --- and as a result, both sides have argued over how EPB board members can be removed.

Glasgow Councilman, Wendell Honeycutt, is responsible for making the request for Beshear to send clarification. Beshear cites KRS 96.760 but added in his response, "there must be clear cause" for removal of a utility board member.

It's unclear at this point if or when the city council will move forward with trying to shake up the roster of board members at EPB, but they are urging customers with any issues to contact the utility directly for resolutions.

A familiar scam returns to the area

Local Police Departments are urging residents to beware of a phone scam. The caller states they are a representative of the Internal Revenue Service and that there is an active arrest warrant due to non-payment of taxes. The caller will then tell the potential victim that the warrant will be “taken care of” if they will pay the past due taxes over the phone via credit card or checking account number. This is not common practice for collecting back taxes.  Should you be contacted by this person(s), do not give them any personal information, and hang up the phone immediately.

Injury accident leads to two arrests

An injury accident Wednesday night has led to two arrests in Barren County. The Barren County Sheriff’s Office responded to an injury accident on the eastbound ramp of the Cumberland Parkway just off of I-65. 36 year old Danny J. Dean, of Monticello, was operating his 2014 Dodge Ram pickup on the onramp when he became involved in an altercation with his passenger, 32 year old Shelley L. Lair 32, also of Monticello. During the altercation the vehicle was stopped on the ramp, at which point Lair threw the keys out the window before exiting the truck.

High speed chase in Grayson County

The Grayson County Sheriff's Office is asking for your help in locating a suspect in a high speed chase. Deputies say on January 25th, they attempted to stop a vehicle on Hardin Springs Road in Grayson County when the driver refused to stop, leading deputies on a high speed chase traveling down Salt River Road and St. Paul Road, heading toward the Mt.

According to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Department, the woman working at the post office was exiting a side door with a mail cart Saturday, when the suspect pointed a semi-automatic pistol at her, shoved her into a bathroom and told her to not come out or he will kill her.

Ambulance Tax considered for Barren County

Barren County Fiscal Court held a meeting Tuesday to discuss an Ambulance Tax District. Ambulance service is currently funded by the city of Glasgow, Barren County, T. J. Samson and Metcalfe County. According to Glasgow Mayor Dick Doty, "The way it's funded now, is if they run short on money, and if they don't collect enough money from their patents, through insurance, and they run short on money to pay their bills, the come to those four entities," When those bills need to be paid, the four entities scramble to find the money. The Mayor says if the Ambulance Tax were to pass, there would be money specifically for ambulance service. Right now, city residents are paying double for the ambulance service because they are paying city and county taxes. The contribution that the city makes to the ambulance deficit each year is $200,000 or $300,000."

Jury will begin deliberation in murder case

The jury will have to weigh two very different stories surrounding Laynee Wallace's death. Both Kelsey Wallace and Anthony Barbour say the other killed Laynee, under completely different circumstances. A taped phone call between Barbour and his mother was heard by the jury, with the mother asking him to tell the truth.  Alan Barbour, the father of Anthony Barbour also took the stand, giving details of his meeting with his son at the courthouse, concerning the shirt that was found. He said Barbour told him that Kelsey was the one who threw the shirt out the window after Laynee's death.  The afternoon session of the trial began with Kelsey Wallace taking the stand for the second time.  Kelsey Wallace also testified once again that she did not see Laynee on any of those days in 2015.  Anthony Barbour took the stand and began his testimony by saying that on Saturday May 16, 2015 both he and Kelsey Wallace injected meth.  According to Anthony, the family went arrowhead hunting together. He claimed Laynee was misbehaving and they went home. He then gave his side of the story stating that the child's death occurred while he was gone to the store. Barbour said he believed the child's death occurred as an accident. The defense then rested it's case.  Both attorneys are expected to make closing arguments this morning, which means the jury may begin deliberating on a verdict as early as this afternoon.

Traffic Advisory: I65 Southbound In Hardin /LaRue/Hart Counties

After delays from earlier in the week due to weather, traffic patterns have been set (as of this morning) for the new phase of construction as widening I65 to six lanes continues in Hardin, LaRue and Hart Counties.

The most significant change is for Southbound motorists. Access to Exits 81 (Sonora), 76 (Upton) and 71 (Bonnieville) is only available from the right lane. Southbound traffic is now flowing in two divided lanes through these areas. Anyone needing access to Sonora, Upton or Bonnieville but misses the right lane at the “split” (ending up in the left lane) must continue to Exit 65 (Munfordville) and then go Northbound on I65 or US 31W. Signs are posted well in advance of the “split”. Motorists should pay close attention to signage, slow down in this area and minimize distractions.

Further South, work is nearing complete and three Southbound lanes are now open on a new surface between Exits 71 (Bonnieville) and 65 (Munfordville). Northbound should be open to three lanes in that same segment within the next two or three weeks.

Fatal crash on I-65 Monday

Anyone making a trip to and from Louisville on Monday experienced long delays. I65 was closed all morning and most of the midday due to a southbound fatal crash just south of Shepherdsville.

42-year-old Mary Canary and a passenger, 20-year-ol Clara Campbell both of Louisville, were traveling south in a 2008 Chevrolet HHR. For unknown reasons, Canary lost control and struck the center concrete barrier causing the vehicle to roll over and land on its top. The vehicle came to rest on the interstate. As other motorists stopped and exited their vehicles in attempts to help, a 2014 Freightliner Semi-truck operated by 57-yearo-old Alonzo Silva of Saginaw, MI. approached the scene and struck a 1994 Ford Ranger driven by 36-year-old Jessie Maxwell of Mt. Washington, causing a chain reaction where several other vehicles collided. Two people not in vehicles were also struck. In all, 9 vehicles were involved.

Mary Canary, Clara Campbell, Jessie Maxwell, 56-year-old Deborah Kelly of Shepherdsville, 32-year-old Adam Bogard of Shepherdsville and 21-year-old Shaine Weaver of Shepherdsville were all transported to University of Louisville Hospital. Bogard and Weaver were out of their vehicles when they were struck. Maxwell was pronounced dead upon arrival at U of L Hospital. Injuries to all the others aren’t expected to be life threatening.

The crash closed southbound lanes of I-65 for several hours. Northbound lanes were also congested with motorists slowing down as they passed opposite the scene, which resulted in numerous minor crashes. Detour routes were also congested and slow due to overflow from interstate traffic.

Fires in Great Smoky Mountains Park

Officials say several areas are being evacuated because of fires in and around Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee.

But the Knoxville News Sentinel reported that as wind picked up and fallen trees sparked fires from downed lines, Gatlinburg fire officials declared a mandatory evacuation of a larger area.  Some park employees were also evacuating and some locations closed.  A news release from the Gatlinburg Chamber of Commerce says the National Park Service reports more fire growth expected in the park with spot fires possibly forming outside the main fire area.

Elliott County voters voted Trump

SANDY HOOK, Ky. (AP) - Meet Elliott County, Kentucky, whose residents voted for Democrats for president since before the turn of the century - the 20th Century.

But on Tuesday, 70 percent of the county's voters flipped for Donald Trump and upended history for his message of creating jobs. One factor that turned them away from the Democratic candidate for the first time: Hillary Clinton's vow to put a lot of coal miners out of business.

In interviews with The Associated Press, Elliott County residents provided clues to the results that handed Trump the presidency: They felt left behind the nation's recovery and disappointed in President Barack Obama.

Said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: "If Trump was able to win in Elliott County, that really underscores how (Trump's) message resonated across the country."

Gov Bevin vows tax reform in 2017

Republican Gov. Matt Bevin said Kentucky's new Republican ligislature would overhaul the state's tax code in 2017, but it would most likely have to happen in a special session. Bevin says that tax reform "will happen" in 2017, but said it is unrealistic to think the legislature can get it done in a 30-day session that begins in January. Bevin did not say what the new tax code would look like, but said he is open to eliminating the income tax. Republicans won a majority in the state House of Representatives on Tuesday for the first time since 1920. Bevin vowed the new majority would pass a right-to-work law, reform the court system, pass school choice, repeal the prevailing wage and get rid of the Common Core educational standards.

Traffic Website Replaces 511 Phone Line

Kentucky officials say they have replaced the system that motorists use to get updated traffic and weather information. A statement from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the nearly 20 year old 511 phone system has been replaced with an online portal, Goky.ky.gov. It describes the website as an improved, user-friendly platform that provides up to date information on traffic conditions, construction activity and weather related events that affect roadways. Transportation Secretary, Greg Thomas, says usage of the phone system has declined in recent years, with motorists preferring visual, on-demand road and weather conditions. In addition, Thomas says phasing out the phone system will save $75,000 annually.

KSP Warn of increased deer activity

With the changing of fall leaves comes the migration of wildlife, particularly deer. The Kentucky State Police is urging all motorists to be aware of the increased dangers posed by deer wandering onto roadways this fall. Drivers should be engaged, alert and on the lookout for deer this time of year. Deer mating season leads to higher roaming activity all across the Commonwealth, which leads to more car-deer crashes. In 2015, Kentucky recorded 3,283 vehicle-deer collisions, an increase of 175 crashes compared to 2014 statistics. Three people were killed and 163 injured. Data indicates that the highest percentage of deer crashes occur between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. in Kentucky.

Risk of forest fires in Kentucky continues

The Kentucky Division of Forestry says recent rainfall hasn't eased the risk of forest fires. Agency officials say that warm temperatures and winds have already caused dry conditions to return. They say seasonal restrictions on outdoor burning are in effect. The agency asks Kentuckians to wait until conditions change before doing any outdoor burning. The fall forest fire season in Kentucky began October 1st and lasts until December 15th. During that period, it's illegal for anyone to burn between the daylight hours of 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. While it's not illegal to burn after 6:00 p.m., forestry officials say the dry conditions make burning dangerous at all times. The forestry division's director, Bill Steele, says a substantial amount of rain over several days is needed to improve conditions.

Waiting until the last minute can be a costly mistake and leave you with a plan that doesn't meet your needs. Ask about options and dig deep into finding out deductions, premiums, out of pocket expenses, co-pays, health incentives and limitations on medications. Begin now and you will be much more satisfied with your choice.
