I-65 SB rest area reopens today

Just in time for the busy Memorial Day weekend travel period, motorists heading south on Interstate 65 in Hart County will have access to the rest area that was destroyed by a January 2016 blaze.

The facility, located at mile point 59, is set to reopen on Friday, May 26 at noon. Services will be limited to include truck and motorist parking, as well as restroom access. Crews are still in the process of completing the final punch list of items including landscaping, trim, vending services and other cosmetic repairs. Signs alerting motorists of the work in progress will be displayed around the facility.

“We are fortunate to reopen the rest area in a timely manner thanks to our partnership with state agencies and contractors,” said Secretary Greg Thomas. “We are glad that motorists have the opportunity to utilize the rest area again.”

Crews anticipate that the final repairs should be complete within two weeks while landscaping work will continue through the fall.

“Everyone along this portion of the I-65 corridor is thrilled to have the rest area open again, especially the citizens and business community of Hart County,” said Sen. Steve Meredith, of Leitchfield. “We greatly appreciate the Transportation Cabinet's commitment and efforts to have this restoration project completed as soon as possible. It serves as another example to the people traveling through our state that Kentucky is open for business.”

With AAA forecasting a record number of Memorial Day travelers in more than a decade across the country, increasing access to rest areas couldn't be better timed.

“I am pleased that the Transportation Cabinet has taken action to get the rest area in Hart County reopened, just in time for the holiday weekend,” said Rep. Bart Rowland, of Tompkinsville. “While last year’s fire was tragic, and work will continue to get the rest area back to where it was, this is good news for all of our citizens, including the many travelers who will be out and about this weekend.”

The facility was destroyed by a fire on Jan. 5, 2016 shortly after 2 a.m. CST. The interior was completely damaged leaving just the shell of the building. The State Fire Marshal's Office determined that the cause of the blaze was an electrical issue.

The southbound Hart County rest area welcomes approximately 1.5 million visitors annually.

Memorial Day weekend safety

The Kentucky State Police will be out in full force this Memorial Day Weekend. Highway deaths in Kentucky may be on the decline this year, but that doesn't mean police won't be ramping up for the anticipated increase in traffic during this long Memorial Day holiday weekend. The "Click It or Ticket" campaign is now underway across the country, coinciding with what is considered the traditional start to the summer driving season. So far this year, Kentucky State Police report, 267 people have been killed in traffic crashes in the state, down from 286 at this point last year. Nine people died in crashes last Memorial Day Weekend, and authorities hope to reduce that total this holiday weekend with heavier speed enforcement. Among the things police will be looking for are impaired or distracted drivers, speeders and especially those not using seat belts and child safety seats. Law enforcement agencies will also be conducting traffic safety checkpoints at various areas around Kentucky to promote safety.

Higher healthcare premiums predicted by analysts

-Especially for those age 50 and older. Analysts predict health insurance premiums could rise as much as eight-thousand dollars a year under the American Health Care Act as it now stands. In addition to removing protections for people with pre-existing conditions, the bill would allow insurers to charge as much as five times the premium to older policyholders. An estimated 24 million Americans would lose coverage under the previous G-O-P health plan. The bill is set to go before the U-S Senate soon, where plans to make major changes to it have been widely reported.

Horse Cave/Cave City merging for Trail Town

The merging of two area communities looking for Kentucky Trail Town Certification has been announced. According to Sandra Wilson, Horse Cave/Hart County Tourism Commissioner, "We're excited to partner with Cave City as part of the Trail Town initiative. Horse Cave and Cave City have so much in common, including tourism, education, healthcare, utilities, and service organizations. By pooling our energy and resources, we will work to make this project a real economic force in the region". Sharon Tabor, Executive Director Cave City Tourist & Convention Commission agrees. "Merging the Trail Town efforts strengthens our certification efforts. Horse Cave has cultural assets that Cave City does not have, yet Cave City has access to outdoor adventure activities that are not as prevalent in Horse Cave. We compliment each other and merging the efforts makes us strong partners". Munfordville recently received Trail Town Certification after a two-year application process. Brownsville and Park City are also making applications for Trail Town Certification. These five communities are part of the regional Cave Country Trails, Inc., project to connect eleven communities, four counties, two state parks and Mammoth Cave National Park.

Minton Jr. A spokeswoman said Friday Minton denied the request on procedural and substantive grounds. Nance declined comment through a court official. The judge is under attack from civil rights groups seeking his removal from the bench. Kentucky law allows gay couples to adopt. The U.S. Supreme Court ruling in 2015 that effectively legalized same-sex marriage nationwide cited adoptions by same-sex couples as “powerful confirmation from the law itself that gays and lesbians can create loving, supportive families.” The ruling also emphasized that people whose religious doctrines forbid condoning same-sex marriage must be given “proper protection as they seek to teach the principles that are so fulfilling and so central to their lives and faiths.” Before submitting his proposed rule to the state’s chief justice, Nance filed an order in late April stating that attorneys should notify court officials if their adoption cases involve gay adults, so he can take steps to recuse himself. He cited a state law requiring judges to disqualify themselves from proceedings when they have a personal bias or prejudice. Nance said he believes as a “matter of conscience” that “under no circumstance” would it be in a child’s best interest to be adopted “by a practicing homosexual.” That order had not been rescinded by Nance as of Friday afternoon.

Complaint filed against family court judge

The ACLU is seeking the removal of a family court judge in Barren and Metcalfe County.  A complaint was filed Tuesday by multiple civil rights groups and a law professor, calling for Judge Mitchell Nance to be removed from office.  Nance has been a family court judge since 2004 and serves in Barren and Metcalfe counties. This comes on the heels of his April 27th order

recusing himself from adoption cases involving gay parents. The judge said he issued the order so that adoption cases involving gay parents could be directed to another judge without causing delays. Another judge in the 43rd Circuit, Judge John Alexander, has said he is willing to preside over any adoption cases involving gay parents. The complaint alleges that Judge Nance is violating the Kentucky Code of Judicial Conduct. According to a spokesperson, once a complaint is filed, the commission

has 180 days to move forward with proceedings.

Hodgenville woman sentenced for reckless homicide

A Hodgenville woman charged with manslaughter was found competent to stand trial and then sentenced to a year in prison last week. 60 year-old Lovie P. Skaggs appeared for a competency hearing May 12th in LaRue Circuit Court. Skaggs originally was indicted for second-degree manslaughter and first-degree criminal abuse by a LaRue County Grand Jury last July. The charges are a result of the neglect of her mother, Roby Skaggs, who was in her care and passed away on May 28th, 2016, according to reports. The penalties for both charges were five to 10 years each in prison. According to the indictment, Lovie Skaggs placed Ruby Skaggs, who was reportedly physically helpless, in a situation that caused serious physical injury, torture or cruel confinement. The indictment further states Lovie Skaggs allowed Ruby Skaggs to be in those situations and engaged in conduct which created a grave risk of death and thereby caused the death of Ruby Skaggs. During the hearing, Skaggs accepted a one-year plea deal. She had her second-degree manslaughter charge amended to reckless homicide and her first-degree criminal abuse charge amended to second-degree criminal abuse. The penalties for both charges were one to five years each in prison. The Commonwealth's Attorney Office recommended one year for each charge to run concurrently for a total of one year in jail.

Caverna Schools celebrate successful review

Teachers and Administrators at Caverna Independent Schools are celebrating after a highly successful diagnostic review which moved the district from having 17 improvement priorities to only 3 priorities and determined District Leadership to have capacity in implementing best practices in education. The last Caverna Independent School District Diagnostic Review was conducted in 2014. The district was left with 17 improvement priorities that targeted 21 indicators and the district was found to not have capacity to address these priorities without state assistance. The 2017 diagnosic review team indicated that the leadership team at Caverna had addressed each of the 17 improvement priorities and has worked diligently to focus on improved student performance. The team found that the leadership team at Caverna had established many new processes at the district level and in each of the three schools to improve student performance and ensure systemic program improvements. Cornelius Faulkner, Superintendent, stated, "We showed growth in each of the 17 improvement priorities. We were excited to find we only had 3 improvement priorities from this review and that the district leadership was found to have capacity in being able to address these priorities. We are extremely proud of the hard work of the teachers and administrators and their commitment to our district."

Cold case murders remain a mystery

The first took place 45 years ago, involving drugs, deception, corruption and death. It was July 28th, 1972 when 31 year-old Larry Stinson Key was killed. A year earlier, he had been busted by an undercover cop for dealing meth. And in exchange for a lighter sentence he agreed to testify against the others involved. He was even offered protection by the feds, but Key's family believes he was shot and killed at the Glendale exit ramp off I-65 in Hardin County to keep him from testifying. And as a result, the investigation never took place.

All three fires occurred within a time frame of about three weeks in the area of Central Avenue and East Brown Street. A statement issued by the police department said a fire was ignited on the front lawn of a residence at 309 1/2 Central Avenue, but burned itself out before reaching the structure. Three weeks later, on April 15th, a fire was set to the same residence eventually engulfing and destroying the unoccupied home. A couple of days later, a structure at 210 E. Brown St., also unoccupied at the time was set ablaze and destroyed. After investigating the fires, EPD detectives determined the fires had been intentionally set and identified 43 year-old David Dudgeon as a prime suspect. He has been arrested and charged with three counts of second-degree arson. Dudgeon, who resided on Mulberry Street, confessed to setting all three fires using a cigarette lighter. For safety reasons, both structures have been demolished. Second-degree arson is a Class B felony that, if convicted, each count carries a sentence of 10 to 20 years.

Change in federal law for boaters

FRANKFORT - The Kentucky Department of Vehicle Regulation is alerting boaters of a recent change in federal law regarding the registration and renewal process for vessels.

Beginning January 2018, boat owners will need to verify all Hull Identification Numbers (HIN) when renewing or applying for new registrations. All HIN registrations must be valid and formatted correctly in order to be compliant with the new law.

If a HIN is missing or not formatted properly, a boater must apply for a new HIN. Boaters are required to complete the TC 96-169 application for a hull identification number and attach the ownership documents as instructed.

Boaters can submit their applications by mail, email or in-person at the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s One-Stop-Shop.

“This new law streamlines the boater registration verification process and establishes federal standards to help prevent identification theft and fraud,” said Stephanie Williams, director of the Division of Motor Vehicle Licensing.

Renewal postcards for 2017 will be also mailed to Kentucky boat owners notifying them of the new requirement and required compliance by the 2018 renewal period.

When registering or renewing a HIN in 2017, a message attached to the registration or receipt will notify individuals that they will not be able to renew their registration in 2018 without a valid HIN. Boaters are encouraged to visit http://drive.ky.gov for more information.

All boats registered in Kentucky must have a HIN recorded in the state’s title and registration database. All boats imported or manufactured on or after November 1, 1972 are required to have a HIN. These identification markers may be molded into the hull or marked by an engraved metal plate located at the vessel’s stern.

The Department of Vehicle Regulation has been working with the U.S. Coast Guard and the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife in order to conform to this new requirement.

To find out more about valid HINs and the actions that boat owners must take in order to comply with the new law, visit http://drive.ky.gov/motor-vehicle-licensing/Pages/Boat-Titling.aspx or contact KYTCMVLBoat@ky.gov for more information.

“Feed the Need” started in 2009 in response to the increased need in our communities for access to basic needs, especially food.

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.

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. The Kentucky Council of Churches and the ACLU oppose the bill, saying it hurts religious freedom.

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.

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. Hebron community. The vehicle crashed into other drivers, leaving the roadway multiple times and crashed through gates and fences, doing significant property damage. The suspects were able to get away after crashing through a cattle gate on an old logging road deep in a wooded area, blocking deputies from pursuing them with the suspects fleeing on foot. The Grayson County Sheriff's Office says they have the identity of at least two of the suspects including the driver, but they are not being released at this time.
