Reminder: Never leave children inside vehicles

As temperatures rise, Kentucky State Police are reminding people not to leave children inside vehicles. Sgt. Josh Lawson says on a 75-degree day, an infant could die of hyperthermia in only 15 minutes, depending on the circumstances. Lawson says curiosity can also be a problem when a child playing outside ends up in a car and becomes overcome with heat in a short time. Lawson says people should never leave a child in an unattended car, even with the windows down. Also, make sure everyone is out of the car when unloading. Always lock the car, and if a child is missing, check the car and trunk first. Use a stuffed animal placed in the front seat or a purse or briefcase in the back as a reminder that a child is inside.

New Hart County Jail inmate work program

A new program at the Hart County Jail is expanding job opportunities for inmates. Inmates approved for the program, will be able to fill out a job resume which is sent to a state approved employer to decide if the applicant is suited for the job. When the inmate is hired, they are treated just like any other worker. This also gives employers another avenue to fill jobs. Hart County Jailer Israel Bergenson says many inmates find themselves in hard financial situations while in jail and even after being released. This program will allow participants a more solid footing when released, allowing a portion of the participant's paycheck to be withheld and directly applied to what they owe, such as repayment of fines and restitution.  Currently there are 10 inmates in the work program and Kentucky Chrome is the approved workplace.

The second Grayson County teacher in a month, has been arrested in relation to sexual abuse charges. John W.

Cariel has been charged with Distribution of Obscene Matter to Minors, 1st offense, Sexual Abuse, 1st degree, Sodomy 2nd degree and Prohibited use of Electronic Community System to Procure Minor: Sex offenses. The alleged incidents that led to the charges occurred in October 2017. Further charges may be pending. Grayson County School Superintendent Doug Robinson released the following statement Tuesday morning: "A student tip to a School Resource Officer alleging inappropriate student contact has led to the arrest of Grayson County Middle School teacher, John Cariel. The alleged contact took place through technology in the fall of 2017 and off school premises. Teachers are placed in a position of supreme trust. Students and their families should always have confidence in that. We realize that trust within our own system has now been broken due to the actions of a few. "Grayson County Schools will not tolerate even a suggestion of improper behavior or contact between teachers and students. Any allegations will be handed over immediately to law enforcement for investigation. If verified, they will lead to arrest, prosecution and termination from both the district and the Education professional Standards Board to ensure these individuals can never again work with children."

Public meeting for Hwy 218 & 31-W connector

From completely rebuilding US 31W along Cave City and Horse Cave to doing nothing at all, area citizens spoke their opinions at a Tuesday night public meeting aimed at gathering input on a proposed project to redirect commercial vehicle traffic between I65 and Horse Cave's industrial area.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials and consultants presented five general concepts to the public for a better connection between KY 218 and US 31W.  Two of them join 31W south of Horse Cave's factories while two of them join to the north.  All four intersect KY 218 just west of Friendship Baptist Church.  A fifth concept rebuilds the current stretch of KY 218 west of US 31W in a center turning lane configuration with a thru right turn configuration at the downtown traffic signal.

KYTC and the project team will compile provided comments from the meeting along with input from industry stakeholders and present results late summer of this year.

Funds for design of a selected project and right of way purchasing are included in the current two year transportation budget.  Utility relocation funds are identified in the transportation plan.  No construction money is identified.  Complete estimated costs of the presented concepts range from nine to fifteen million dollars.

Anyone who missed the meeting but would like to review the presentation and provide input can still do so by going to the KYTC District 4 web page at transportation.ky.gov or by looking up the District 4 Facebook Page at Facebook.com slash KYTCD4.

Several cases dismissed in Hart Circuit Court

Several cases were dismissed in Hart Circuit Court Friday on motions by the commonwealth regarding the Horse Cave Police Department.  About six cases were dismissed on Friday; most without prejudice.  Attorney Johnny Bell says it's impossible for the commonwealth and judges to go forward in good faith, regardless of which side you are on, due to the integrity of police officers being questioned. At least four of Bell's cases were dismissed in mid-March for the same reason.  Atty Lucrecia Hudson estimated she has had 10 cases dismissed due to matters involving the police department. The Horse Cave Police Department is the subject of a federal investigation being led by the FBI with assistance from the Kentucky State Police.

Hart County Schools closed Friday

Hart County Schools Supt. Ricky Line released the following statement:

"Hart County Schools will be closed on Friday, April 13th. As you are probably aware from numerous news reports and social media updates, the Kentucky legislature is in the final days of their regular session this week. There has been much concern expressed over key issues affecting all Kentuckians, including potential changes to the pension system for teachers and all state employees as well as state funding for education. In order to allow our staff members to be present in Frankfort tomorrow as legislators possibly take action on these items which will directly impact our ability to serve our students, Hart County Schools will be closed on Friday, April 13th. While we realize this may be inconvenient for some families and is a slight disruption of our instructional schedule, we believe it is critical in joining other school districts across the state to enable our staff members to be present in Frankfort tomorrow to represent the needs of our students and the profession. We are fortunate to have dedicated teachers and staff members who are passionate about our students and care about the future of public school education and its value to the future of all students and our community as a whole. Thank you for your continued support of our schools. As a result of this schedule change, the last day of the school year will now be Thursday, May 17th."

Threat made toward school

A threat made toward a school in New Mexico last week caused some concern for Caverna High School. A picture had been posted on Snapchat which showed a person holding a rifle and referring to Clovis High School, which is also known as CHS. After numerous shares and likes on social media, the post soon arrived in the news feed in South Central Kentucky. Believing that the post was meant for Caverna High School, the post was shared locally and brought to the attention of Caverna School officials. Superintendent Cornelius Faulkner says these types of threats are posted where young people are active on social media and can sometimes be false information. Faulkner went on to say school safety and educating the students are the top priorities. And the spreading of false misinformation is a real issue. He encourages parents to pay close attention to what their children post online. There was no threat to Caverna High School.

Metcalfe County murder for hire plea deal

A Metcalfe County man accused of murder for hire, has pleaded guilty in U. S. District Court. 51 year-old Kevin Scott Gentry, of Greensburg, was originally indicted by a Barren County Grand Jury in March 2016 on one count of criminal solicitation to murder. The indictment occurred after Gentry was arrested in Glasgow after a meeting with undercover detectives during which he provided information about the intended victim and $2,500, with another $2,500 to be provided after the job was finished. The meeting and a phone call were recorded. KSP requested that the alleged intended target's identity be withheld to avoid re-victimization of that person. The federal indictment, which alleges that Gentry used a telephone with intent that a murder be committed as consideration for a promise to pay something of value, was filed in Metcalfe County in July 2016. Gentry pleaded guilty to the charge Monday and waived his right to appeal. It was also discussed that there is no mandatory minimum for this charge, with a maximum of 10 years in prison with three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine.  Asst. U.S. Attorney Larry Fentress said the U.S. recommends a sentence and fine on the lowest end of the guideline. Gentry will remain in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service until his sentencing hearing, scheduled for July 9th in U.S. District Court.

Traffic Advisory - I65 Heavy Spring Break Traffic

Motorists should prepare for extremely heavy southbound volumes when traveling Interstate 65 this weekend. In recent years, slow conditions were reported on Friday going into the week when many public schools are on Spring Break. Delays were not the result of incidents or construction activities. In these instances, volumes are simply heavier than two lanes can accommodate. Stop-and-go traffic is the result. Friday afternoon is expected to be the height of volume, but heavier than usual traffic is likely to continue through the weekend and the remainder of Spring Break week.

While northbound traffic is also expected to noticeably heavier the weekend coming out of Spring Break, it should be less concentrated than southbound traffic the weekend going in.

We ask motorists to plan ahead for these conditions. Weather will also be a factor. Chances of rain are in the forecast for much of this weekend and early next week, creating the possibility of reduced visibility and stopping distance.

With regard to construction between Mile Points 83 and 95, no lane closures are planned through the Spring Break period. Work will not impact traffic.

Motorists are asked to be patient and pay close attention to signage through the construction zone. Be aware of nearby vehicles and always allow space to react to unexpected conditions.

For updated travel/road conditions visit www.goky.ky.gov and our KYTC District 4 Facebook page at www.facebook.com/kytcd4 (@kytcd4).

A murder trial in Barren County has been postponed. The trial of Clark W. Smith, who is charged in connection with the death of  22-year-old Kristen Rae Edwards, was set to begin April 25th. It has been postponed until July 31st. A Kentucky State Police arrest citation for Smith states that he waived his rights and admitted to “murdering and disposing of Kristen Edwards and her personal items.” Edwards’ remains were found in Hart County, however, the crimes are believed to have occurred in Barren County July 14th, 2016, nine days before her body was discovered in a container on the Green River. Smith’s defense attorney, Lucrecia Diaz Hudson, filed a motion asking for permission to either have a deposition by an independent psychologist videotaped before the trial for presentation to the jury during the trial or have the trial start at a later date,

because the psychologist could not be available to testify during the trial. Smith has been lodged at the Barren County Detention Center since Aug. 19th, 2016.

Chief Henry pleads 5th in hearing

In Hart County District Court this week, Henry took the stand to testify in a preliminary hearing case involving an individual, who was arrested by the Horse Cave Police Department and faces felony drug charges. The hearing was to determine if there was probable cause to move the case up to Circuit Court. The attorney representing the client, asked one question to Henry, "Did you plant drugs on my client?". Henry pled the

5th Amendment, which is not an admission of guilt, but protects an individual from being compelled in a criminal case to be a witness against himself. The case was ultimately dismissed and two other cases involving Horse Cave Police Department arrests were also dismissed the same day. Several clients who question the integrity of the police department and claim that evidence had been planted, have been represented by Glasgow Attorney Johnny Bell. The Horse Cave Police Department is currently under an active FBI investigation, where Police Chief Sean Henry and Officer Chris Trulock have been placed on unpaid administrative leave.

Radcliff man offered plea deal in bomb threat

A Radcliff man arrested in December for making a blanket threat about bombing "your school" has been offered a plea deal to settle the felony case. 26 year-old Jhonathan Raul Sanchez was arrested December 14th and charged with second-degree terroristic threatening - a Class D felony punishable by one to five years in prison, if convicted. Sanchez was offered a four-year plea deal by the Hardin County Commonwealth's Attorney's Office late last month. He would be parole eligible after serving 15% of his sentence - a little more than seven months. Sanchez already has served more than three months, which would be counted toward his eligibility date. Sanchez was arrested after someone called the Radcliff Police Department and also took a screenshot of a Dec. 14th Facebook post of Sanchez dressed in a black jacket and wearing a black ski mask with the words, "Praise allah. I bomb your school!!" on his page. According to court documents, Sanchez reportedly told Radcliff Police, "It was just a joke."

Late Breaking:  Horse Cave Police Department Changes

 

Officer David Graves is now Acting Chief of Horse Cave Police. Appointment to the position was made Friday by executive order of Mayor Randall Curry.


Other changes made Friday include termination of Officer Larry Martin. Restrictions have been in place on Martin’s law enforcement duties related to an ongoing investigation from when he was employed in Monroe County. Mayor Curry says those restrictions rendered Martin ineffective as an officer.


Since early March, Chief Sean Henry and Officer Chris Trulock have been on administrative leave with pay. Friday, both were moved to administrative leave without pay.
According to the Mayor, current city budgeting is set up to provide “five or six” officers. These moves will free resources to allow hiring in needed positions.


City officials still know very few details of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s probe into police department activity in Horse Cave. Mayor Curry and City Attorney Patrick Ross have fielded numerous inquiries in recent days but say there is no new information. Kentucky State Police assisted in securing potential evidence during a search of the department two weeks ago, but it becomes more apparent over time that details being made public will be at the discretion of the FBI. A spokesperson for the bureau confirmed the investigation on March 5th but despite numerous inquiries by media sources, no additional statements or information has been released. Generally considering timelines of FBI investigations, it is not likely for new information to be released until the bureau is ready to take additional action.


During our news conversation with Mayor Curry on Friday, he specifically asked to publicly thank the Hart County Sheriff’s Department for assistance over the past two weeks. He says the assistance combined with remaining Horse Cave personnel makes it possible to cover needed law enforcement community services such as placing an officer at Caverna Schools.

Glasgow Police responded to a single-vehicle fatal accident on the parkway and determined that 31 year-old Joshua Haley, of Bowling Green, was traveling east driving a 2003 Subaru when the vehicle dropped off the left side of the road, overcorrected and came back up on the road, crossed over both lanes of the road before striking the guardrail. The vehicle then went off into the median and overturned, according to a Glasgow Police Department news release from Public Information Officer Terry Flatt.

Local students participate in a walkout

Students at both Caverna and Hart County High Schools participated in Wednesday’s 10am nationwide school walkout honoring Florida shooting victims. Caverna High School administrators decided to allow students to attend an organized assembly in the gym.  Principal Chase Goff said a period silence was observed in remembrance of those killed in Florida and Western Kentucky.   Goff says he and other faculty spoke with students in attendance about actions Caverna Schools take to protect students.  He also says students were given the opportunity to share their thoughts during the assembly.

At Hart County High School, a handful of students gathered in the parking lot at 10am.  Principal Greg Cecil says he provided supervision of the walkout.  Much like the assembly at Caverna, Cecil says he talked about actions and protocol in place to protect students.  He says those attending were also able to use the opportunity to share their thoughts.

While Wednesday’s walkout was civil and otherwise uneventful here, the campaign caused controversy across the country.  Administrators and students worked together in planning an event in some cases while other administrators drew a hard line in the sand by issuing detention or other disciplinary action for students who decided to walk out of classes.

The meeting comes a week after Federal Bureau of Investigation and Kentucky State Police officials seized computers, phones and other potential evidence as part of an on-going investigation.  After about 20 minutes, council chambers reopened and it was announced no action was taken during the closed session.

Following the March 5th seizure, Horse Cave’s Police Department resumed operations on March 7th.  Of the city’s six officers, there are two noticeable absences.  Chief Sean Henry and Officer Chris Trulock are on administrative leave with pay.  Phones from both were among items seized by investigators.

There is still no timeline from FBI or KSP officials.  Mayor Curry says the city continues full cooperation with investigators.  After the meeting, we talked with him and are working to scheduling an appearance on “Studio 101 Live” to address the community.

Horse Cave Police Department Site Of FBI & KSP Focus

Horse Cave (WLOC) - Most everyone is aware of Monday's investigative event at Horse Cave's Police Department. Wild speculation along with unreliable reports surfaced on social media through much of the day in regards to FBI and Kentucky State Police presence at the department. Officially, FBI and KSP officials have only acknowledged an investigation process is underway, but no other details have been released by these agencies.

Through a conversation with Horse Cave Mayor Randall Curry late Monday, he tells us agents and troopers gathered information and interviewed people throughout the day. Without commenting further on the investigation, he explains much of his afternoon was spent communicating extensively with the city attorney and the commonwealth's attorney. Mayor Curry says no officers are on duty from the Horse Cave department at this time, but is assured by State Police Captain John Clark from Post 3 in Bowling Green that city residents are being provided with law enforcement services from State Police and Hart County's Sheriff's Department as needed. State police already serves as the dispatch agency for emergency personnel in Hart County. There has been no lapse in response to area residents.

Some social media and at least one news outlet imply Monday's event is connected to an ongoing investigation involving a city police officer when he was employed by Monroe County's Sheriff's Department. However, neither the FBI nor KSP has confirmed or denied any such connection. There are few facts available from legitimate sources at this time. We will continue to report factual information as it is received.

Radcliff teen arrested for kidnapping two sisters

A Radcliff teen has been arrested following the kidnapping of two sisters. Thursday afternoon, Meade County dispatch reported a stabbing at a cabin in Vine Grove. When Kentucky State Police units arrived, they found a 17 year-old female, who had been stabbed in the hand. She told authorities she and her sister were forced into a vehicle at knifepoint from their driveway on Fentress Boulevard in Hardin County. 18 year-old John Gaskins brought the girls to the cabin, tying their hand with rope behind their backs. The 16 year-old female agreed to ride to Pennsylvania with Gaskins in order to keep her sister from more harm. The other sister

Body cam backs up deputies story

A body cam proved to be very useful in backing up claims of an officer with the Barren County Sheriff's Department. Earlier this week, the Department of Social Services contacted the sheriff's office concerning a possible threat to two youths at a home in Barren County. The male perpetrator they were asked to find had an extensive felony background, so safety measures were taken. Using GPS, a deputy, along with a social services representative, arrived at a home and a man is at the front door with a gun. BC Sheriff Kent Keen says the body cam on the deputy shows he was following through with safety measures when he handcuffed the man.  Moments later, the Deputy realized this was not the man they were looking for. There were strong allegations posted on facebook against the Barren County Sheriff’s Office with numerous shares and comments. Barren County Sheriff Kent Keen said the information on facebook was wrong and the entire encounter was less than 5 1/2 minutes. Keen went on to say instances such as this are

becoming all too common.
