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.

Dept. of Revenue sets homestead exemption

The maximum homestead exemption on real estate owned by qualified persons has been set at $37,600 for the 2017 and 2018 tax periods. The 2017-2018 exemption reflects a $700 increase over the 2015 – 2016 exemption of $36,900.

The amount of the homestead exemption is adjusted every two years in accordance with KRS 132.810 to compensate for changes in the purchasing power of the dollar. The exemption provided state and local property tax savings of approximately $209 million for more than 440,000 elderly or disabled Kentuckians during the 2016 tax year.

To qualify for the homestead exemption, a person must be at least 65 years old during the tax period or have been classified as totally disabled by any public or private retirement system. The property must also be owned, occupied and maintained by the taxpayer as a personal residence on the January 1 assessment date.

Applications for the homestead exemption should be filed in the local Property Valuation Administrator’s office.

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.

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.

Juvenile Detention death

The family of a teenager who died in a Kentucky detention center is suing saying the girl was restrained with a martial arts technique for refusing to remove her hoody and then left to die in her cell. Kentucky's Department of Juvenile Justice says Gynnya McMillan died in her sleep of natural causes. The department's statement says medical examiners determined she died without any signs of distress that would have prompted medical attention. WAVE-TV reports that the family's lawsuit filed Wednesday accuses the Lincoln Village Regional Juvenile Detention Center staff of falsifying records to cover up their failure to monitor the 16 year-old. Some of those records claim McMillan declined breakfast and a snack, and was non-compliant, when in fact she had already been dead for hours.

No ruling on transgender restroom mandate

A new school year is underway for most of our local communities but very little has been mentioned regarding transgender restrooms in recent weeks. In May, federal officials sent a notice to public schools that transgender students must be allowed to use restrooms consistent with their chosen gender. Despite adequate time for a ruling, a federal judge still hasn't decided on a request from 13 states, including Kentucky, to halt the Obama Administration's directive on bathroom rights for transgender students in public schools. US District Judge Reed O'Connor heard arguments on Friday in Texas seeking to halt the directive. Some states' leaders argue the directive undermines privacy safeguards for other students. In a separate ruling last week regarding a specific case, the US Supreme Court ruled that a Virginia School system has the right (for now) to block a transgender female born student from using a boys restroom. Since May, Texas and 12 other states have been asking for an expedited ruling on the issue. Judge O'Connor acknowledged the fact that schools are having to tread unknown waters with a new school year starting. He stated he would continue to work on questions he was "wrestling with" but gave no indication of when a ruling might be issued.

Hart County listed Build-Ready location

Gov. Matt Bevin announced Monday industrial sites in Horse Cave and Greenville recently joined Kentucky’s list of Build-Ready certified locations, a designation offering companies a streamlined process to quickly locate, build and begin operations. “Any time a Kentucky community establishes a Build-Ready site, it’s a great indication of future growth potential. By successfully completing the certification process, Hart and Muhlenberg counties put themselves out front in terms of welcoming industrial development,” Gov. Bevin said. “The time and cost savings that come from selecting a Build-Ready site are major selling points in attracting business to a new location. The 40-acre Horse Cave site, located in Hart County’s Progress Park, includes a 120,000-square-foot building pad. Hart County Judge Terry Martin applauded the program. “This Build-Ready site in Progress Park allows Hart County to place their industrial properties on a site that can be viewed by more businesses, developing an interest in our area that is not ordinarily available to us,” Judge Martin said. “This allows Hart County to be on the World Wide Web to showcase our location and infrastructure.” Horse Cave Mayor Randall Curry said he looks forward to working with prospect companies and securing new employment for the city and, are proud to be able to offer another opportunity to bring quality jobs to Horse Cave and Hart County.

Group opposed to students visiting Noah's ark attraction

A group opposed to a new Noah's ark attraction in Kentucky says it is warning hundreds of public schools against visiting the Ark Encounter. The Freedom from Religion Fountain says ark field trips would expose children to religious proselytizing in violation of the constitutional separation of church and state. Foundation co-president Annie Laurie Gaylor told the Lexington Herald-Leader that warning letters went to more than 1,000 school districts in Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana and West Virginia. Kentucky Education Commissioner Stephen Pruitt sent a message to school districts Monday in response saying that neither outside groups nor state education officials should dictate field trip selection. A school's site-based decision making council approves trips. The Madison, Wisconsin-based group says it heard from parents concerned their districts will organize trips to the ark.

Kids and hot cars are bad combination

Children and hot cars can quickly become a life-threatening combination, and Kentucky State Police officials want parents and caregivers to avoid such a tragedy. State police spokesman Sgt. Michael Webb advises never leaving a child in an unattended car, even if the windows are down. Make sure everybody gets out when unloading, and don't forget sleeping babies. As a reminder, leave a stuffed animal in the car seat and movie it up front when the child is in the car seat. Or put your purse or briefcase in the backseat to remind you there's a child in the car. Webb says curious children sometimes enter a vehicle on their own, so be sure to lock your car. And if a child is missing, check the car and trunk first.

Ag officials step up efforts to stop scammers

Kentucky Department of Agriculture officials say they are ramping up efforts to stop scammers from stealing consumers' credit card numbers at gas pumps. News outlets report that for the first time, inspectors who normally check pumps for gas quality and quantity will now also be looking for small electronic devices called skimmers that capture data from bank cards. Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles and Louisville police held an event Monday at a convenience store on Bluegrass Parkway in Jeffersontown to shed light on the crime ahead of the peak summer travel season. Quarles says the department's 15 gas station inspectors will check all 60,000 Kentucky gas pumps for evidence of skimming by examining inside the panels where consumers scan their bank cards. An estimated $3 billion globally has been lost to such fraud.
