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.

Hart County Tourism Executive Director, Sandra Wilson explains how Hidden River Cave used to be a place where the sewers of the town to be emptied, but decades of cleanups and land purchases through grants are finally making it possible for the cave to come back to life. Before the Sunset Dome closed in the 1940's, baseball players were challenged to try and throw a ball to hit the ceiling of the enormous natural theater. As fas as the American Cave Museum know, no one ever could. The dome fills a space of more than five acres, and each time it's seen, it brings out more emotion from the people trying to revive it. Hidden River Cave has started fundraising that includes a gofundme.com page. They need $400,000 to get the work done they'd like to see and have already secured a private grant for the final $100,000 if the first $300,000 is raised.

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.

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.

Horse Cave City Council Meeting

The Horse Cave City Council met for over an hour in closed session to discuss personnel and threatened litigation, and the possible acquisition of property where public discussion might influence its value. The Council took no action on either of those items.

The Council passed a resolution authorizing the American Cave Conservation Association to apply for a grant of up to $250,000 from the Kentucky Appalachian Regional Development Fund. The grant funds will be used to develop a part of Hidden River Cave that until recently was off-limits because a connecting portion was owned by CSX Railroad. The city purchased that connecting section last month.

ACCA Director Dave Foster envisions a series of underground zip lines and adventure tourism features to entice visitors to an additional ¼ mile length that will now be accessible to Hidden River Cave visitors. He described an enormous underground room, Sunset Dome, 250 feet tall, 150 feet wide and about 200 feet long. Foster added that funding for cave development, “Will allow access to the biggest part of the cave. It can become one of the coolest places on the planet.”

The Council also voted for a one-time pay increase for all city employees. Full time employees will receive an additional $200 and part-timers will earn an additional $100.

The Council approved acquiring additional streetlights on Top Quality and Cherry Street as well as having KU look into a faltering light in front of the First Baptist Church.

They also discussed the need to install signs limiting parking on Water Street to two hours. Once the signs are installed, time limits will be enforced.

 

Horse Cave Police Officer Larry Dale Martin reported the police force made 34 traffic stops in November. They made 1 arrest for assault and 10 arrests for domestic abuse as well as multiple arrests for drug and alcohol violations. Martin said that the police force fed 10 families with drug fund money over the Thanksgiving holiday. In December they are planning the ‘Shop with a Cop’ event to provide Christmas presents for 5 Horse Cave children.

Fire Chief Donnie Parker reported that his department made 44 runs in November for a total of 465 for the year, including the response to the Caverna school bus crash on Old Dixie where a bus driver went off the side to avoid a head-on collision with a driver on the wrong side of the road. None of the kindergarten thru fifth graders was seriously injured in the accident.

Maintenance Department Supervisor Jimmy Martin said his crew responded to 19 animal control calls where they ended up transporting six animals. He said about 95% of the city’s leaves have been removed.

Mayor Randall Curry will provide a Year-in-Review of the year’s highlights as the month draws to a close.

Three teens arrested at Metcalfe High School

KSP report a day long investigation has led to the arrest of three Metcalfe county teens. Post 15 received a call Thursday morning from the Metcalfe County High School regarding potential threats being made by the 3 teens toward other teens and a teacher in the school. As a result, the three juveniles were arrested and charged with Terroristic Threatening 2nd Degree. All three were lodged in the Adair County Youth Development Center. 

The Metcalfe Board of Education has made a statement concerning the arrests of the teenagers. Early Thursday morning the principal and other leaders of Metcalfe County High School were made aware that at least two students had made a threat of aggression towards the high school. District officials and law enforcement were immediately notified. Within minutes the students in question were isolated and a full investigation was initiated.  At this time the investigation is continuing. Those students who were directly involved have been identified and are being dealt with as dictated by the school discipline policy and the legal system.  According to Chris Huffman Safe Schools Director, "We take any and all threats seriously". "It's important for our community to know that the high school leadership team followed exact protocol and the situation was under complete control from the moment the information was shared. At no time was any student in danger." Huffman added, "We are confident we have identified the main individuals responsible for this, but we will continue the investigation until we are completely satisfied that all questions have been answered."  He concluded by saying "We can't emphasize enough to our students and entire community... if you see or hear something that just doesn't sound right, please let a school official or law enforcement know. It is much better to be wrong than to let something just pass by."  School officials have indicated there was no disruption to the school day and all activities will continue as planned this week and leading up to Christmas break.

Vehicle break-ins reported in Glasgow

The Glasgow Police Department has received multiple complaints of vehicles being broken into with various items taken including cash, a stun gun, a tablet, firearms and shells. The areas targeted to date have been Hall Street, Woods Drive, Uncle Johns Lane and Autumn Ridge, all of which happened overnight. Since Thursday, November 26th, nine vehicles have been reported to have been broken into with items missing. Several others were broken into, however, a report was not filed as nothing was taken. 

The guns reported stolen are:

Parker and Hale .270 caliber bolt action rifle

Marlin 30-30 lever action rifle

9mm Smith and Wesson MMP

Glock 42 .380 Caliber

Ruger 9mm handgun

 

Those responsible for the break-ins are using a method they call "checking" which is just what it sounds like. They walk up to a vehicle and "check" the door to see if it's locked. If it's not they get in the vehicle and take what they want. If the door is locked, they move on to their next target. This is an easy way to move through a neighborhood or even multiple neighborhoods in a very short amount of time. You are urged to lock your vehicles and don't leave valuables inside. Every vehicle that has been reported broken into was unlocked. In addressing the stolen guns, keep in mind, it is unknown what the thieves intent is for taking them. Please don't leave your guns in your vehicle overnight and when you take them inside your home, secure them in a safe place where children can't get to them. Everyone is asked to be vigilant in watching for and reporting suspicious activity.

Hardin Memorial Hospital expansion project

Beginning Wednesday, Nov. 11 through Sunday, Nov. 15, access to the Hardin Memorial Hospital Emergency Department will be through the walk-up admitting entrance. During this five-day time period there will be no direct access from the HMH parking garage on the southern end of the hospital campus directly into the hospital.

The closure comes as the canopy connected to the parking garage and the existing Emergency Department is being removed as part of the Emergency Department expansion construction project.

HMH will provide shuttle service on the first floor of the garage to the Admitting entrance. The shuttle will be available on the first floor at the southern end of the garage. Those parking on the second or third floors will need to proceed to the first floor to catch the shuttle. The shuttle is handicap accessible and will run from 6 a.m. – midnight beginning Wednesday.

Individuals who want walk from the garage to the Admitting entrance need to exit the south end of the garage and use the sidewalk along the parking garage.

Service in the Emergency Department will not be interrupted during this period.

The nearly 14,000-square foot expansion and redesign of the Emergency Department will better serve the more than 60,000 patients who visit the HMH Emergency Department annually. The current space, ranked the fourth busiest in the state, was designed to serve 44,000 patients.

“We want to thank the public for their patience during this two-year construction project as we continue to provide quality emergency care and build the Emergency Department to best meet the needs of this region,” said Dennis Johnson, President and CEO of Hardin Memorial Health.

Bevin says Christian faith guides him

Republican Matt Bevin says he is guided by his Christian faith while his critics cast him as dishonest in his run for Kentucky governor. Bevin said his faith held his family together following the 2003 death of his 17 year-old daughter in a car accident. That faith is now the basis for his campaign as he airs TV ads identifying himself as a Christian conservative and defending Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples because of her religious beliefs. Democrats say Bevin has a history of not telling the truth, including denying he has property tax problems despite paying penalties for late payments. Bevin said he has paid everything he owes and that Democrats take his comments out of context.

Farmers RECC Announces Update on Glasgow Renewable Power Project

Glasgow-based Farmers RECC and its power supplier, Winchester-based East Kentucky Power Cooperative (EKPC), today announced updates on their project to develop a plant in Glasgow that will produce clean, renewable energy. 

Called the Glasgow Landfill-Gas-To-Energy (LFGTE) project, the plant will produce renewable power using methane collected from the Glasgow Regional Landfill.  The electricity generated by the plant will go into the Farmers RECC distribution system, serving the members.  The plant will be owned and operated by EKPC, the power supplier that is owned by Farmers RECC and 15 other rural electric Kentucky co-ops.  The Caterpillar engine that will convert the methane gas to electricity was delivered on October 12, with installation taking place during October.  With the delivery of the engine, all of the major components of the project will be on site and the remaining piping and electrical work will begin.  Final commissioning activities and testing will tentatively begin during the first week of November, with final startup scheduled for the end of the November.  "We are extremely excited to begin the final steps in this project" said Farmers RECC President and CEO Bill Prather.  "This project has been made possible as a result of the City, Farmers, and East Kentucky Power working together for the benefit of the community."

The plant will produce approximately 1 megawatt, which is enough electricity to power about 550 Kentucky homes.

Kentucky Treasurer Todd Hollenbach says scam artists are at it again, this time calling Kentuckians and identifying themselves as a "pre-trial intervention" organization leaving behind a vague and mysterious message. Treasurer Hollenbach says the call is an obvious scam to obtain personal information and added legal actions or notice of legal actions are normally handled by mail, not over the phone.  If you do receive a call, you may report it to Attorney General Jack Conway's Office of Consumer Protection at 888-432-9257 or visit ag.ky.gov for more information on scam calls. 

Meanwhile, if you're looking for some legal tender that you've left unclaimed, the Treasurer's Office suggests searching the unclaimed property database at MissingMoney.com or if you don't have access to the internet, you can call Treasury's Unclaimed Property Office toll-free at 800-465-4722.

Each year, the Kentucky Treasury returns millions of dollars in unclaimed property to Kentucky residents. Since 2008, under the proactive leadership of Treasurer Hollenbach and his Treasure Finder's Program, the Treasurer has returned a record $135 million in unclaimed property.

Politicians asked about gay marriage stand

Politicians who may have thought they wouldn't have to say much at all about gay marriage once the U. S. Supreme Court effectively legalized it are being called on to say whether they support Kim Davis. The Rowan County clerk, who has become a darling of many conservatives despite being a Democrat, cited "God's authority" and religious liberty in choosing jail time over issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Some social conservatives consider her a hero and see a chance to shift the gay marriage debate from one about civil liberties to one about religious liberty. A judge ultimately freed Davis on the condition she not interfere with her deputies issuing the licenses, but social conservatives at at every level, including some presidential candidates, have tried to capitalize on her recent celebrity.

Ky Center to receive funding to fight overdoses

The federal government is giving Kentucky $3.7 million over the next four years to fight prescription drug overdoses. Gov. Steve Beshear's office announced Thursday that the funding will go to the Kentucky Injury Prevention and Research Center, a partnership between the Kentucky Department for Public Health and the University of Kentucky College of Public Health.  Beshear said in a news release that legislation that took effect in 2012 has brought a decline in so-called "doctor shopping" and prescriptions for heavily abused medications. He said the funding will help the state continue educating the public about the dangers of drug use and abuse. The centers for Disease Control and Prevention launched the $20 million program.

Traffic stop leads to school lock down

On Thursday, at approx. 2:14 pm, Trooper Joe Gregory with the Kentucky State Police Post 3 Bowling Green made a traffic stop on US 31W at the Rich Pond Market for a traffic violation. After he made contact with the driver and was in the process of identifying him, the subject fled in the vehicle. The passenger was detained while the search for the driver was conducted. The subject did flee in the area of the South Warren Schools so a decision was made by the schools to go into lock down until it was safe to do otherwise.  After the search area was narrowed down, police assisted in allowing the schools to dismiss after a short period of time.  The area in which the subject was last seen was searched thoroughly by several Troopers, Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officers, and the Warren County Sheriff's Department, along with the aid of their canine.  The subject was not located at this time, but was identified and warrants will be sought in reference to this incident.  His information has not be released but it is believed that he fled due to having several outstanding warrants. The investigation is still ongoing.
