PSC calls on utilities for help

The Kentucky Public Service Commission is asking electric and natural gas utilities to work with customers who are having difficulty paying higher heating bills in the wake of a harsh winter. The agency that regulates the state's utilities sent a letter to chief executives of the utilities. It urges the electric and natural gas providers to "be as flexible as possible in avoiding disconnections and in allowing customers to make arrangements to extend their payments."  PSC Chairman David Armstrong says the higher monthly bills could come as a shock to many customers.  The PSC says assistance is available from the state through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program. A number of utilities have also announced increased corporate contributions to their assistance programs.

Farmers concerned about cigarette tax

Tobacco growers from throughout Kentucky were in Frankfort Wednesday to talk with lawmakers about a proposed 66% increase in Kentucky's cigarette tax.  Opponents of the tax hike maintain it could be counter-productive. A recent study of 32 states who increased cigarette taxes shows just three met or exceeded revenue projections. Growers pointed out to lawmakers that higher taxes would drive smokers across borders to buy cigarettes and hurt retailers like convenience stores, which derive more than 36% of their sales from cigarettes.  Opponents say the proposal to boost Kentucky's cigarette tax to a dollar a pack would unfairly burden those least able to pay, the nearly 48% of the lowest income Kentuckians who smoke.

No sympathy for Hart County panhandler

A Kentucky judge might have been fooled once, but not twice. The State Journal in Frankfort reports Franklin District Judge Kathy Mangeot originally fined Hart County native Gary Thompson $100 and waived court costs when he was arraigned Tuesday morning in trespassing case. She said in a later hearing that he used a fake voice designed to gain sympathy.  After the arraignment, she searched Thompson's name on the Internet and found news coverage in which he told Lexington TV stations last year that he faked having a disability while panhandling. Mangeot ordered him hauled back into court and told him several times not to speak during the proceeding. She called him a "con artist," told him to pay court costs and increased his fine.

Mammoth Cave backcountry trail closed

Safety concerns have caused the temporary closure of a trail in the backcountry of Mammoth Cave National Park.  Superintendent Sarah Craighead said “Some horsemen identified a ‘mud hole’ where their horses sank up to their bellies”.  Raymer Hollow Trail Park staff have determined the best way to deal with a large mud-mire that has developed along Raymer Hollow Trail is to temporarily close the 6.2-mile trail.

Other trails and campsites are available. The park’s backcountry holds approximately 70 miles of trails. All routes are open to hikers, with Raymer Hollow closed about 52 miles are open to horse use, and 12 miles are open to mountain bikers.

Hwy 68 in Green and Metcalfe Counties

What will US 68 through Metcalfe and Green Counties look like years down the road? With a new interchange at the Cumberland Parkway now under construction, the corridor connecting Edmonton to Greensburg will become more traveled than ever. A public meeting was held Monday night in Sulfur Well to gather comments from area residents. About 100 people attended and provided state transportation officials with opinions of the road's most dangerous segments. Embry Kidd, Metcalfe County Emergency Management Director, says that tractor-trailer traffic is one of his biggest concerns... And, with the new interchange opening, the assumption has to be an increase in truck traffic will take place. Officials explained to the audience that there are two options with the road. One, is to reconstruct the entire corridor between Edmonton and Greensburg at a cost that will exceed 100 million dollars. The second is to do spot improvements, where the most needed sections are addressed. There is some question as to the feasibility of securing money for the first option. The second option is less costly and could happen more quickly but wouldn't address all of the areas of concern along the road. Another major portion of the project is the Greensburg Connector. While officials purposely stay away from using the term bypass, it would function much like one. There are 5 options with reconstructing 68 through Greensburg. Two of them go thru town and three of them track along the southeast side of town. With each part of the project, officials stress safety but also say that efficiency in mobility and connectivity is an important justification for improvements. Another meeting is being held tonight at Greensburg Baptist Church to give residents of Green county an opportunity to weigh in. Anyone who missed Monday night's meeting is also invited to attend.

Cell phone "One-Ring" Scam

Cell phone users in Kentucky are being warned to be alert for a new scam called "The One-Ring Scam."  Kentucky State Police say there are reports across the country of "ring and run" incidents on cell phones. They say returning those missed calls from an unknown number can be costly for the cell phone owner. State police Sgt. Michael Webb says scammers profit from people curious enough to return that missed call.  He says their accounts can be charged about $20 for the call and $9 for every additional minute. Webb urges people not to return calls they don't recognize. Better Business Bureau officials say such "phone cramming" occurs when automated dialers send out thousands of calls to random numbers. Most of the area codes are from the Caribbean Islands.

Minimum wage bill clears House committee

A bill aimed at raising the minimum wage in Kentucky has cleared A House committee. The measure is a top priority of House Speaker Greg Stumbo, who says the current minimum wage doesn't provide a living wage. The Prestonsburg Democrat says full-time employees working for the minimum wage make less than the average cost of a used car in the U. S.  The bill was approved by the House Labor and Industry Committee on Thursday. Under the bill, the state's minimum wage would gradually increase from the current $7.25 to $10.10 an hour on July 1, 2016. There would be a 95-cent increase this July and another 95-cent boost in July 2015. Stumbo says Kentucky's minimum wage hasn't been raised since 2009.

Utility companies receive record donations

Residential customers across the Louisville Gas and Electric and Kentucky Utilities companies’ service territories stepped up in a big way to help their fellow neighbors, breaking previous heating assistance donation records and helping even more community members this winter.

Coupled with the utilities’ year-round donation matches and increased match of $2 for every $1 donated by customers since October 2013, LG&E and KU customers and the utilities contributed more than $440,000 in 2013 toward the utilities’ heating assistance programs. The agencies make this financial assistance available to community members who may be struggling this winter to pay their heating bills. In December alone, customers donated nearly $27,000, setting a new five-year, all-time donation record for a single month. And, the utilities’ increased assistance will continue through March 31, 2014 — matching $2 for every $1 donated by residential customers to the utilities’ heating assistance programs. Residential customers may make a tax-deductible donation to the utilities’ heating assistance programs by making a monthly pledge or a one-time contribution. Even rounding up a payment to the next whole dollar makes a difference.

Cold weather heating advise

Utility companies have some advice for Kentucky residents during this week's cold weather. While power outages usually don't require backup power sources, some people do use portable generators in emergencies, but they must be operated safely. Make sure the generator is the right size, and have a licensed electrician ensure it's properly installed and that the wires are isolated from the utilities' electric system. Portable generators must by operated outside and be properly vented. Never refuel the generator while it's operating. Natural gas also requires precautions. Don't use a gas oven to heat your home as it can create deadly carbon monoxide gas. Be aware of the warning smell, sound and sight of leaking gas, and report any leaks. Ice on tree branches can cause downed power lines. If you see a downed wire, stay away and call the utility company.

High school student creates lighting app

A high school student from Bowling Green has created an app for iPhones and iPads that allows the user to control a wireless lighting system for the home. Ethan Gill is a 17 year-old senior at Gatton Academy and says he created his app, called HueHueHue, to make operating Philips Hue lights simpler. Western Kentucky University, where Gatton Academy students study for college credit in their junior and senior years, says the lights can be remotely controlled with a smart device. But Gill says unlocking the phone and waiting for the app to lad took longer than using a regular light switch.

Costly electric bills loom ahead

As we continue through the winter season, Farmers RECC would like to remind its members that the weather brought colder-than normal temperatures in December 2013 and early January 2014.  With the cold temperatures and added wind chill factor, increases in January and February electric heating bills could be higher, since those bills will reflect December and January usage.  Farmers RECC offers free home energy evaluations to members to help identify home improvements that help seal the envelope of the home, keeping heated air inside. There are several rebates offered to members who add additional home insulation or have their ductwork sealed to improve heating system performance.  Levelized budget billing is offered to help keep electric bills more equal and Community Action's Low Income Heating Assistance Program offers state and federal utility assistance dollars to income eligible customers.  To learn more about any of these programs, or if you have questions about your electric bill, please call Farmers RECC at 270-651-2191 to speak to a Member Service Representative.

I-65 widening work begins

Work to widen Interstate 65 from four lanes to six in Hart County began Wednesday night. Crews are setting a temporary, inside barrier wall on southbound lanes. No lane closures will be allowed during the day (7am to 7pm central time). Once the wall is in place there should not be a need of temporary lane closures until the next shift in October.  Motorists are reminded to pay attention to signage when approaching the construction zone. Lane shifts are setup on the southbound approach to the project and on approach to bridges over US 31W, CSX Railroad and Green River near Munfordville. Reduced speed limits are in effect and fines are doubled when workers are present.  In mid-December, work to remove shoulder rumble strips and shift traffic to the outer shoulders (both directions) was completed. This allows construction work to take place in the median. Once inside lanes and permanent barrier wall are constructed, traffic will be shifted and work will begin on outside lanes. Shifting to inside lanes will not take place until October. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained through the duration of the project.  As work progresses, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 4 Office in Elizabethtown will issue press releases and post traffic impacts on social media. For inquiries, feel free to contact KYTC D4 Public Information Officer, Chris Jessie.  Visit these links for more information:

Freezing weather could burst pipes

The Kentucky Division of Water wants residents to get through the freezing weather forecast for the next several days without having their pipes burst and has some advice.  Water inside pipes expands when it freezes and can cause pipes to rupture, allowing water to escape and cause serious damage. The Division of Water says pipes in attics, crawl spaces and outside walls are vulnerable, especially if openings let in outside air.  To prevent freezing, wrap hot and cold water pipes in insulation or layers of newspaper and cover the newspaper with plastic to keep moisture out. Run a trickle of water from a cold faucet farthest from the water meter or one that has frozen before. Also, open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to let warm air circulate around pipes.

Motorists reminded to finish strong in 2013

As the end of 2013 approaches, Kentucky State Police Post 3 Bowling Green is reminding motorists to "Finish Strong" in 2013.  The Commonwealth of Kentucky is on course to finish out the year with the lowest number of highway fatalities since 1947.  Kentucky State Police contributes this reduction in fatalities not only to enforcement and education, but to citizens who are making smart choices wearing seatbelts, being alert and attentive, slowing down and utilizing a designated driver when alcohol is involved. In 2006, seatbelt usage in Kentucky was at 67.2% and currently stands at 85%. The agencies hope is that the remaining 15% will make it their New Year's Resolution to wear a seatbelt and to remember to "Buckle Up, Every Time and Every Trip." As part of the "Finish Strong" campaign, Kentucky State Police will be utilizing Directed Patrols and Safety Checkpoints.

Project awarded for new interchange

A project to construct a new interchange from U. S. 68 south onto the Louie B. Nunn Parkway in Metcalfe County was recently awarded by the Kentucky Transportation Department.  The $9.68 million project is designed to improve safety and mobility of motorist and commercial vehicles traveling in Edmonton and Metcalfe County. The interchange will be built where U. S. 68 crosses over the Parkway, near the 10 mile point of U. S. 68. Currently, only a single interchange exists on the Parkway for Edmonton and Metcalfe County -- about 5 miles west of Edmonton. Traffic from the industrial park, on the eastern side of Edmonton and other businesses in and around the downtown area must pass through the KY 163/U. S. 68 intersection in downtown Edmonton to access the existing parkway interchange on the west side. The new interchange will improve safety and mobility by providing an additional access to the Parkway and create an alternative route for traffic along U. S. 68 and KY 80. L-M Asphalt Partners Ltd. was awarded the contract, which has a 270 working day scheduled attached to it. In addition to the construction of the road surface, the contract included the construction of a bridge.

Court upholds wife's murder conviction

The Kentucky Supreme Court has upheld the intentional murder conviction of a Taylor County woman sentenced to life in prison for killing her husband with an overdose of morphine.  The justices found that statements 63 year-old Kathleen Hibbard Wise made to detectives after taking a polygraph test in 2011 were admissible because she waived her right to remain silent. Justice Mary Noble concluded that Wise chose to take the polygraph after quickly reviewing a form explaining her legal rights.  Wise is serving life in prison for the death of her 71 year-old husband Kenneth Wise.  A coroner initially ruled his death a heart attack, but subsequent blood tests showed high levels of morphine in his system.  Police later questioned Kathleen Wise, who acknowledged putting the drug in her husband's water.

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

This holiday season, Cave City Police will be out in force cracking down on drunk drivers throughout the region with aggressive Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement. From Dec. 13, 2013, to Jan. 1, 2014, state and local law enforcement will be watching for drunk drivers to help keep roads safe for holiday travelers.

Cave City Police Department is giving fair warning to all partygoers. We will be conducting lots of stops during this highly visible enforcement period and if we suspect anyone is driving while intoxicated, officers will show zero tolerance for drunk driving.

Unfortunately, the excitement and celebrations of the holiday season can lead to terrible decisions-- and serious legal consequences.

Data shows that the holiday season is a particularly deadly time due to the increased number of drunk drivers on the roads, and we are prepared to stop and arrest any drunk driver we see to keep roads safe.

Nationally, in the Decembers from 2007 to 2011 there were 4,169 people killed in crashes that involved drivers with blood Alcohol concentrations of .08 grams per deciliter or higher.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 32,367 people were killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes across the nation in 2011, and 31 percent (9,878) of those fatalities occurred in drunk-driving-related crashes.

The Christmas and New Year holiday season is the ‘most wonderful time of the year,’ and we are going to keep our roads safe for travelers heading to visit friends and family. This holiday, we will show zero tolerance for drunk drivers on the road. If you choose to drive drunk, we will see you, we will stop you, and you will be arrested.

Drunk drivers often face jail time, the loss of their driver licenses, higher insurance rates, and dozens of other unanticipated expenses ranging from attorney fees, court costs, car towing and repairs, to lost wages due to time off from work. Even worse, a drunk driver can cause a traffic crash that claims someone’s life, or their own.

Please follow these tips to keep the holidays safe and happy:

Even one drink can impair your judgment and increase the risk of getting arrested for driving drunk-or worse, the risk of having a crash while driving.

If you will be drinking, do not plan on driving. Plan ahead; designate a sober driver before the party begins.

If you have been drinking, do not drive. Call a taxi, phone a sober friend or family member, use public transportation.

Be responsible. If someone you know is drinking, do not let that person get behind the wheel.

If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact law enforcement. Your actions may save someone’s life, and inaction could cost a life.

Remember, it is never safe to drink and drive: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

Widening project on Interstate 65

Work began Monday on the next section of widening of Interstate 65 to three lanes in each direction. Scotty’s Contracting has a $63.6 million dollar contract for the project, which was awarded in late November. As the next step of a goal to expand the interstate from four to six lanes all the way to Elizabethtown, this project pushes north approximately seven miles (mile point 58 – mile point 65) from the endpoint of a project that is currently underway through the Horse Cave Interchange. The new project will include the Munfordville Interchange, ending just to the north.

Crews will be closing the outside lane of northbound and southbound this week as they prepare to pave temporary driving lanes where shoulders currently exist. This will allow the contractor to install temporary barrier wall and begin work in the median. Closures will take place each day through Thursday from 6am to 5pm. Traffic delays will be possible during peak afternoon hours. A speed limit reduction to 55mph is in place through the new work zone. Mobile message boards have been placed on approach, alerting southbound motorists of the change ahead. Northbound motorists are already in a construction zone as they approach the new project’s starting point. Kentucky State Police will be present to increase awareness.  This project includes reconstruction of several bridges. Structures over Green River are the most significant. The KY 88 bridge over I65 will also be rebuilt along with bridges over CSX Railroad and US 31W in Munfordville.  With the exception of the initial phase (this week), two lanes will be open each direction through the project’s duration. The expected completion date is October, 2015.

Whooping cranes show up in Kentucky

Kentucky wildlife officials say a small number of whooping cranes have shown up in the state. They said Tuesday that wildlife biologists confirmed the presence of five of the birds in Hopkins County and received a report of a sixth bird in Barren County.  Whooping cranes are a federally endangered bird that may not be hunted. The birds are solid white with black wingtips and a red crown. Adults may have a wingspan of 7 1/2 feet and stand up to 5 feet tall. Whooping cranes are similar in silhouette to sandhill cranes.  However, sandhill cranes have gray bodies and are smaller.

Creation Museum - Free Kids

The Kentucky museum that promotes a literal telling of the history of the Bible is offering free admission to children in 2014.  The free admission to the Creation Museum is for children 12 and under and lasts the entire year.  In an online posting, museum co-founder Ken Ham says the offer is part of the museum's "Standing Our Ground - Rescuing Our Kids" theme.  Since it opened in 2007, the museum has drawn criticism for exhibits that scientists say contradict evolution science.  Ham says the museum has collected about $225,000 in child ticket admissions in 2013, so the offer "is going to significantly impact our bottom line." But Ham said he is hopeful that private donations would fill the gap. Children must be accompanied by one paying adult.

Electric utility customers beware of scams

Electric utility customers across the state are being warned of an ongoing utility scam across multiple states. The scam is conducted when an individual receives a call from someone falsely claiming to be a utility employee. The scammer warns that power will be shut off for some reason if they don't make a payment. The person is then instructed to purchase a prepaid debit card and to call the scammer back. The scammer asks for the debit card's receipt number and PIN number which grant instant access to the card's funds. Some of these scammers use technology that enables caller ID to replicate actual utility phone numbers. Electric companies will never ask or require members to purchase prepaid debit cards to avoid terminating electric service. Members can make legitimate payments by phone, online, smart phone app, bank draft, mail or in person. Farmers RECC urges members who suspect or experience fraud to hand up and call police, then the utility company.

Wintry weather expected for weekend

Current data suggests rain will begin transitioning to a mix of wintry precipitation across portions of southern Indiana as early as midnight Thursday night. By daybreak Friday, this transition line of rain to a wintry mix is expected to be stretched along the Ohio River and then move south of the river through the day Friday. By Friday evening, cold air at all levels will overspread most of the area, changing much of the precipitation over to light snow Friday night.  Another weather system will impact south-central Indiana and Central Kentucky  late Saturday night and Sunday. Over south-central Kentucky, any freezing rain early Sunday morning will change to rain during the day. The focus on wintry weather potential should not take away from the fact that a heavy rainfall event from Thursday through Friday night and again on Sunday could lead to some flooding concerns. This is especially true across south-central Kentucky where 2 to 4 inches of rain are expected.
