Popup driver's licensing pilot program

Hart County is among a group of locations selected by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to feature "popup driver's licensing" as a pilot program.

As deadlines draw near for the state to convert license and ID cards to federally compliant versions for purposes of domestic flights, government property access approvals (like Fort Knox) and other functions which have previously only required a standard driver's license, this provides an opportunity for local residents to avoid a trip to regional offices in Bowling Green, Elizabethtown or Columbia (to name the closest).

Residents of Caldwell, Lee and Owen counties are the others participating in the pilot program.

All services offered at regional licensing offices will be available at these popup locations.

Governor Beshear extended thank yous to Judge Executives in these counties, including Hart County's Joe Choate, for working with the state to bring the service to their communities.

The date for Hart County is Monday, November 15th from 9:30am through 3pm at the Hart County Fiscal Courtroom in the old courthouse on the square in Munfordville.

Appointments are required and must be scheduled on drive.ky.gov. Slots are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.  Walk-in appointments are unavailable. The popup pilot program currently only accepts credit or debit card payments. Pricing information is available on the website.

The cabinet’s partnership with Caldwell, Hart, Lee and Owen counties in November is the final popup pilot before the initiative is launched statewide in early 2022, when events will be hosted periodically in counties without a KYTC Driver Licensing Regional Office.  Kentucky law specifies the number of annual visits based on a county's population.

You can earn more about the program, as well as other ways to renew remotely, at the same website: drive.ky.gov.

Ford company locating in Glendale

Ford is the company that will be locating in Glendale.  They are partnering with SK Innovation which specializes in development of battery technologies.  An announcement was made Monday, putting an end to wide-spread speculation that has been circulating for months.  The site will manufacture lithium-ion batteries for Ford and Lincoln electric vehicles to the tune of 5,000 jobs as part of a $5.8 Billion investment in EV technology. The site has been waiting on a tenant for two decades and will be known as Blue Oval-SK Battery Park and is targeted to open in 2025. Automotive executives say the Glendale site was selected because it is centrally located to best support Ford’s North American assembly plants’ footprint. The Kentucky plant is one piece of Ford's larger plan to push ahead into electric vehicle production. They are also building an all-new $5.6 billion facility in Stanton, Tennessee which will be called Blue Oval City.  The Tennessee plant is expected to create 6,000 jobs and use batteries produced in Glendale for Ford and Lincoln models including F-Series trucks. Ford’s portion of the combined two-state $11.4 Billion investment with SK comes to $7 billion.  It is Ford's largest manufacturing investment in its 118-year history.

BBB investigates fraud website

Scammers have used a former Elizabethtown automotive dealership's name and likeness in a website scam.  The Better Business Bureau says a fraudulent website representing 62 Auto Sales (which is no longer in business) has now been taken down.  A report from the BBB says the agency began receiving reports in August of web and social media pages claiming to represent the dealership and bilking unaware consumers out of thousands of dollars. Victims, believing they were purchasing vehicles online from a reputable dealership, wired money to the scammers and never received the vehicles in return. The bureau along with local authorities and the former owner of 62 Auto Sales worked together through an investigation to confirm the scam and successfully shut down the fraudulent website. The fraudulent Facebook page claiming to represent 62 Auto Sales remains active. The BBB warns consumers to not engage with this Facebook account or wire any money to anyone identifying themselves as representing the former business.

National Guard helping hospital

According to a post on its Facebook page, T. J. Regional Health officials report that the number of COVID-19 inpatients has increased 109% in one month. Last month, the number of positive inpatients was 22 and as of Friday, that number has reached an all-time high of 46. There are currently nine patients in the ICU, all of them are unvaccinated. The hospital reports the ICU has been expanded to accommodate more patients. This comes at a time where the hospital is experiencing record demand for all services, not just COVID.

Members of the Ky National Guard have arrived at T. J. Samson to help the overwhelmed staff. The hospital released a way the community can help out our healthcare workers at this time.

#1 Seek the level of care that is appropriate for your situation. Don't go to the Emergency Department just to get a COVID test.

#2 Get vaccinated. This is the single most important thing you can do to help us and yourselves. Vaccination is safe, effective and free.

#3 Wear a mask when you are out and about, regardless of whether you are vaccinated. Prevention is always the best strategy.

#4 Practice social distancing. Avoid crowds.

$5 Don't assume your cough and running nose are due to allergies. If you have any congestion, runny nose, muscle/body aches, loss of taste or smell, vomiting/nausea and diarrhea - get tested. Isolate at home until you get test results.

Hardin County Industrial site primary focus

An industrial site at the Glendale exit of I-65 in Hardin County is a primary focus of Kentucky Legislators during this special session. When the governor announced the session this past weekend to deal with pandemic protocol, he added the request for legislators to provide economic incentives to help bring about several "mega-projects" all aimed at creating jobs and bolstering the state's economy --- with Glendale being one of them.  A bill has been introduced to spend $410 million of Kentucky’s $1.9 billion “rainy day” reserve fund for these incentives. The 1,500-plus acre Glendale location has been a prospect now for nearly 20 years. Several deals have fallen through in that time, most notably the opportunity for Hyundai to build a major North America Manufacturing facility which ended up being built near I-65 in Alabama. A major battery manufacturing facility was also a prospect around a decade ago. During the past two decades, investments to the property have been made to include the expansion of sewer into Glendale and the site and railway connectivity. In June, Hardin Fiscal Court also approved an industrial taxing district and a related occupational tax within the district. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet expanded I-65 to six lanes through the area over the past decade but did not reconstruct the interchange at Glendale.  At that time, there were no prospects in filling the industrial site to justify spending money on construction. Transportation officials say in light of the new push, they have been asked to ready the interchange reconstruction project for letting.  Work could begin as soon as early-to-mid 2022. Hardin County Officials say it is too soon to discuss exact details of manufactures which are considering the location.

A complaint filed against a Glasgow doctor, accused him of mishandling a baby delivery in order to catch a flight for his vacation. An 18-page complaint filed last week by the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure details the event of the September 2020 delivery, as well as outlines several other complaints and malpractice suits. According to the complaint, in or around 2015, the licensee applied for a license to practice medicine in the Commonwealth of Kentucky with a history of eight malpractice suits, two of which were pending at the time of application. Around December 2015, the doctor was granted a license to practice medicine in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. On September 13th, 2020, Dr. Gerald W. Thorpe told a physician during delivery, "I need you to do this C-section, I have to leave for vacation." Around September 14th, 2020, T. J. Regional Health terminated the licensee's Physician Services Agreement with T J Community Hospital. The grievance was then supported by a statement from Neil C. Thornbury, CEO of T. J. Regional Health. On August 19th, 2021, the licensee and his counsel appeared before and were heard by the inquiry panel, after which the Inquiry Panel chose to ratify the emergency order and issue the complaint.

The prosecution, defense and judge are determining a jury to fairly and impartially decide Patrick Baker's fate.

According to police, Baker broke into Mills' house dressed as a U.S. Marshall and demanded money and drugs. During that break-in, police said he shot and killed Mills.

Tennessee says court ruling prohibits new eviction pause

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee’s court system won’t follow a new COVID-19 pandemic eviction moratorium by President Joe Biden’s administration because of the federal appeals court for its region. Attorneys helping tenants say the legal interpretation leaves those now facing eviction with limited options. The attorneys said they are trying to negotiate with landlords to accept federal pandemic housing aid applied for by tenants, or get landlords to cut ties with tenants who agree to move out sooner than required. Either aims to avoid an eviction mark on their record that could inhibit their ability to get a new place to live in the future. The state is citing a 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling from last month.
