General Election Recap

 

Hart County representation in Washington and Frankfort will remain the same, but several new faces will assume leadership in local government.
 

Hart County sided with other counties in the US Representatives race for the 2nd Congressional District in re-electing Brett Guthrie by a 66% margin (district-wide) and also sided with re-electing Bart Rowland to the Kentucky House of Representatives 21st District by a 71% margin (district-wide).
 

Current Hart County Judge-Executive Terry Martin did not seek re-election this term. Instead, the Republican ticket featured Terry Shelton, a former Hart County Judge-Executive and former State Legislator. The Democrat challenger on the ballot featured Joe Choate. Previously, he was defeated in the 21st District Representatives race by Bart Rowland one term ago. Tuesday night, Joe Choate picked up the majority vote in the Judge-Executive’s race, defeating Terry Shelton 3,624 to 3,015.
 

Two former Kentucky State Police Troopers were on the ballot for Hart County Sheriff. Democrat Boston Hensley currently holds the office and was on the party’s ticket to face Republican challenger Jeff Wilson. The new Hart County Sheriff will be Jeff Wilson, who carried all but one precinct in defeating Boston Hensley 4,198 to 2,537
 

The closest race in the county was decided by only two votes. Randall Curry will remain Mayor of Horse Cave as he defeated Terry Riley 339 to 337. Six seats on Horse Cave’s City Council will be filled by Larry Bunch with 429 votes, Maronda Gibson with 411 votes, Velpha Hatchett with 403 votes, Vickie Rogers with 398 votes, David Lindsey with 397 votes and James Perry “Wool” Martin with 389 votes.
 

In Munfordville, Current Mayor John Freeman did not run for re-election but a former mayor will hold the office once again as John Johnson defeated David Clement 360 to 178. Six seats on Munfordville’s City Council will be filled by Ricky Line with 302 votes, Ronnie Huff with 237 votes, Glenn Thomas with 230 votes, Kenny Shepperd with 227 votes, Jeremy Atwell with 226 votes and Danny Jaggers with 201 votes.
 

In Bonnieville, only 101 total votes were cast for mayor. Denis Edwards, current mayor was defeated by Dale Schoenbachler 58 to 43.

For Caverna Independent School District Board of Education, Marcia Witherspoon received 510 votes, while Fred Paul and Colisha Nuckols each received 434 votes.
 

A constitutional amendment also appeared on Tuesday’s ballot. The measure has been publicly referred to as Marsy’s Law, aimed at guaranteeing certain rights for crime victims. While bipartisan support has been given to the measure, some criticized the wording of the amendment. Voters didn’t seem to mind – easily adopting the law by almost 63% state-wide. Hart County also voted in favor of the amendment, but by a narrower local margin of 55%.
 

Tuesday’s ballot featured a number of offices with candidates who were unopposed. A complete recap of Hart County vote totals can be found by visiting “@wlocradio” on Facebook.
 

Locally, Hart County turnout was slightly above the state average. Of the county’s 13,859 registered voters, 49% cast ballots on Tuesday. State-wide, voter turnout was about 47%. By comparison, state-wide turnout for the 2016 general election which featured the presidential race was 59%.

The Munfordville Police Department reported that in the previous month they answered 128 complaints, made 14 arrests, gave 15 citations, worked 11 accidents, had 10 calls to assist other departments, were called out for 3 domestic complaints, 2 assault calls, opened 8 cases, had 2 calls on thefts and provided escort in 4 situations.

 

There was no report from the Fire Department so the Council quickly scanned the Tourism Department Report dated October 4th, 2018.

The September meeting minutes were approved. The council reviewed 3 projects: the CDW, BBQ 10th year and Sports Complex.

 

The discussion of new ideas for 2019 began.

In Tourism's meeting, they also reviewed the Treasurer's Report.

The final report to the Council was the Mayor's Report.

Mayor Freeman immediately addressed water/sewer issues. The city has received notice of 21 violations which can carry fines of up to $5,000 for each of the violations since this is the 2nd time in 2 years they have been cited.  Fines could conceivably amount to just over $100,000.

The Mayor said the city was cited in January 2013, and then in both February and October of 2015.  In March of 2016 they paid a fine of $6,250 and entered an agreed

order to fix the issues.

The Mayor said there were conference calls he was never informed of and was not present for.

He stated that a plan was adopted in 2017 to make sure these issues did not happen again.

 

Recently the Mayor was informed of citizen complaints regarding smell from the sewer.  Those complaints to the EPA triggered an inspection of the plant which found the plant is not operating as it should. The plant operator told the Mayor he could handle the problem, yet did not inform the Mayor of the problems.  The inspection revealed many other problems including testing procedures at the plant. The Mayor and the engineer asked the Plant Operator many times over the last year only to be told that things were "good",

when, in fact, things were out of compliance.

The Mayor declared that the city owed CEA a debt of gratitude for helping to correct issues and helping them meet permit requirements over the last couple of months, free of charge.

 

The Mayor shared that there is a long, costly road ahead for making improvements and a complete evaluation of the system needs to be done keeping in mind what is best for the citizens of Munfordville.

Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program

Community Action of Southern Kentucky will begin the “Subsidy” portion of the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) that provides heating assistance to eligible households on November 5th, 2018.  The significant cost of energy to heat homes leaves many households unable to fully meet heating bills or purchase sufficient bulk fuel to keep their families safe and warm. Community Action of Southern Kentucky stands ready to help!

A household shall be considered to be eligible for LIHEAP subsidy when the household meets the basic eligibility criteria:

·         Makes and completes an application

·         Be responsible for home energy costs, directly or as an undesignated portion of their rent;

·         Have a combined household income, for the calendar month prior to the month of application, not in excess of 130% of the federal poverty level as listed in the Income Eligibility Guidelines;

·         Live in Kentucky when the application is made and apply in the county of residence; and

·         Not have liquid resources in excess of $2,000 or $3,000 if at least one person in the household is 60 years old or disabled, ($4,000 if resources are being used for living expenses due to catastrophic illness).

Applications will be taken in alphabetic order based on the first letter of the head of household’s last name at convenient Community Action offices, where applicants may also pick up the letter day schedule. Applicants must bring the following information to apply:

1.   Most recent heating bill or verification from landlord that the heating expenses are included in rent

2.   Social Security card or Permanent Resident card (Green Card) for each member of the household.

3.   Proof of household (all members) income for the preceding month.

Civil Action Dismissed Against Horse Cave

A man claiming her was unlawfully detained and arrested by Horse Cave Police has voluntarily halted the resulting federal case.  Voluntary dismissal was issued by the Western Kentucky District of the US District Court in Bowling Green.

The case stems from an August 2017 road block where Travis Branstetter alleged officers threatened to charge him for DUI but offered him a compromise if he would agree to assist in a drug sting.  The dismissed case names the City of Horse Cave, Horse Cave's Police Department, and the current officers Larry Dale Martin II, James Roberts and Sean Henry.  Henry was police chief at the time.

The case was dismissed with prejudice, meaning the plaintiff is barred from bringing an action on the same claim.

A statement sent to WLOC by Mayor Randall Curry states no settlement payment was made for the dismissal.

Horse  Cave Has Authority to repair local street Intersection

Following a long process to transfer private property over to the city for ownership, Horse Cave can move forward with making badly needed repairs to a local intersection.   The entrance road to Dollar General just off of KY 218 is known as Meadowview Drive – and until recently has been under ownership of a private estate.  In September, an agreement was finally reached between the estate and the city to take it into public possession.  A city ordinance was drafted with a first reading held in September.  On October 8th, a second reading was held, officially making the road City of Horse Cave jurisdiction.  Numerous potholes exist at the location and are difficult to navigate.  A lot of criticism has recently circulated toward Dollar General, the city and the state for inaction.  A government entity cannot improve a private entrance.  With the road now accepted into the city system, Mayor Randall Curry says work is ready to begin immediately.  Crews were expected to start today (Monday, 10/15) but weather will ultimately dictate the work schedule.  Curry says the project involves milling and digging out the base of the entrance and properly building it up for the expected standard of traffic.  Previously, the private road was not engineered to handle existing volumes and was not engineered to handle the constant turning movements of commercial and delivery vehicles which can be damaging to pavement surfaces.  After roadway base is constructed, a final surface will be added.  Curry says he anticipates all of the work can be completed this year.

Kentucky unveils new driver's license design

Kentucky transportation officials have unveiled a new design for driver's licenses that they say will enhance security and make it harder for counterfeiters to duplicate. With the change, Kentucky will become one of the final states to comply with a federal travel law passed in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The state will begin issuing the new ID cards in January. The most striking difference in the new design is a grayscale photo of the subject, replacing the color photo from years past. The card will include an image of the state capitol dome and background ink color that is harder to duplicate. Kentucky will offer a standard driver's license or a voluntary travel ID, which will be valid for boarding a plane or entering a military base.

Hart County Civil Case bound over to federal court

A civil case in Hart Circuit Court has been bound over to federal court. The case involves former Horse Cave Police Chief Sean Henry and former Horse Cave Police Officers Larry Dale Martin, II, and James

Roberts. The lawsuit also names the Horse Cave Police Department and the city of Horse Cave as defendants.  According to federal court documents, Travis Branstetter, of Glasgow, claims the police officers unlawfully detained him on August 12, 2017 at a road block for DUI. Branstetter claims he was never given a field sobriety test or any other examination by the officers.  Branstetter claims he was told by the officers three times to set up a drug deal in exchange for not being arrested. In answer to the claims, the defendants say Officer Roberts did not work for the Horse Cave Police Department on the dates mentioned in the complaint. The defendants plea includes sovereign immunity, as well as governmental immunity, as a defense against Branstetter's claims, and they plead the

provisions of the Claims Against Local Governments Act. An order has been filed to schedule a telephone conference for October 30th in the case.

General Election overlooks right-of-way regulations

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet crews are removing illegally placed items along state maintained right of way areas.

Removed items will be taken to each county's KYTC maintenance facility and held for a month. Unclaimed materials will be trashed or recycled.

Semi crash in Grayson County

One person was injured in a semi accident late Tuesday in Grayson County.  At approximately 11:49 p.m., Grayson County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Fred Norder responded to the 93 mile marker on the Western Kentucky Parkway to investigate an injury crash. The investigation revealed that a 2013 Peterbilt tractor-trailer was eastbound on the WKP when, for unknown reasons, traveled off the right shoulder of the roadway and into a rock cut ditch line. The impact with the rock ditch propelled large rocks and debris onto the westbound and eastbound lanes of travel causing an eastbound vehicle to become disabled as a result of striking some of the debris. The driver of that vehicle was not injured. The Peterbilt was loaded with approximately 50,000 lbs of cement powder which had to be carefully handled due to it possibly hardening from the moisture in the air which would have further complicated its removal. The driver of the Peterbilt, 49 year-old James D. Smith, from Freeport, IL, was transported to Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center where he was treated and released with minor injuries. Eastbound lanes were closed at the onset of the crash with one lane being opened and closed intermittently for several hours. The crash was finally cleared at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Scammers usually find these locations on realty and or advertising sites online, and in most cases even provide pictures of the property. Please visit and do site visits with whomever you are trying to rent from to make sure you are not getting scammed.

Southern Kentucky Film Commission Receives Award

The Southern Kentucky Film Commission is the recipient of the 2018 Spirit of Kentucky Award, the Department for Local Government (DLG) announced on Wednesday.

The award, presented during the 43rd annual Governor’s Local Issues Conference in Louisville, is given annually to the sponsors of a public project that strengthens a community through collaboration and thoughtful use of resources, among other criteria. Gov. Matt Bevin presented the award alongside DLG Commissioner Sandra Dunahoo during the Governor’s Luncheon on the second day of the conference.

The winning project represents an innovative and collaborative effort to diversify the economy of seven southern Kentucky counties: Barren, Christian, Cumberland, Edmonson, Hart, Monroe, Warren and Washington counties. Representatives from the counties worked together to attract filmmakers to Southern Kentucky, helping to spur regional economic development. Commissioner Dunahoo said. “Members of the commission have successfully recruited filmmakers who have fallen in love with Kentucky’s natural beauty and Southern hospitality. I commend the members of the Southern Kentucky Film Commission for their dedication and collaboration to provide new opportunities to the area.”

Southern Kentucky Film Commission president & Hart County Judge Executive Terry Martin said Southern Kentucky has what the film industry is looking for: beautiful natural scenery, charming small towns, four temperate seasons, and a workforce with a strong work ethic and willingness to learn.

“It is an economic boom for the area, especially for hotels and restaurants and with the sales, occupational, property and rent taxes that the producers pay,” Martin said. “There’s a lot of tax money that they roll into the area, which really helps local businesses.”  For more information, visit dlg.ky.gov.

The GCHD has administered about 1,300 vaccinations for the virus over the past year, and they've informed the public that there are some people that need the vaccine more than others. Those at high risk include IV drug users, people who are homeless and those that are suffering from cancer. GCHD Environmentalist Joseph Riggs said that because the confirmed cases in the county have been linked to specific reasons, there's no need for people to be worried about eating at local restaurants.
