Derby winning horse, Medina Spirit dies

This year's Kentucky Derby Winner Medina Spirit collapsed and died Monday in Santa Anita, California. Trainer Bob Baffert said in a statement is is believed the horse suffered a heart attack. The colt had just completed five furlongs in a workout. Santa Anita said in a statement that the track veterinary team took blood, hair and urine samples and sent them to the California Horse Racing Board. The colt will undergo a full necropsy, as required by the racing board, to try to determine the exact cause of death.

Medina Spirit tested positive after his May 1st Kentucky Derby win for betamethasone, which is a legal steroid medication but is not allowed on race day.

Just last Friday, Baffert’s attorney released a statement related to this year's derby incident saying tests done by a New York lab “definitely confirmed” Medina Spirit was positive for the steroid. The statement claims the Kentucky Derby test result was an unintentional effect due to application of an ointment containing betamethasone which was used to treat a skin rash and not the result of an injection.

In the colt's most recent race, Medina Spirit finished second in the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Del Mar last month.

The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission continues investigating the derby case and has yet to hold a final hearing. Results of that hearing could still strip Medina Spirit's 2021 Kentucky Derby victory.

Baffert's future in horse racing also remains restricted and uncertain. He is currently prohibited from entering horses in the next two years of the Kentucky Derby.  He is currently banned by the New York Racing Association, which

City of Cave City assumes responsibility of cemetery upkeep

Following a two-week-long plea to citizens from community leaders to attend a meeting and discuss Cave City's Cemetery, the city council had decided to assume responsibility of maintenance and up-keep of the cemetery.

Legal oversight of the cemetery has been under a cemetery corporation for several decades but that entity has not been active in recent years. Since then, Bob Hunt Funeral Chapel has been the main point of management and record keeping for the cemetery. With lack of formal oversight, many records are incomplete or missing. A cemetery board will be created by the city with a transition of responsibility expected the first of the year. Anyone with documentation of burial plots or anyone with questions can contact Cave City's City Hall.

Thanksgiving travel expected to be heavy

Packing the family to head up or down I-65, heading out on a flight or even driving locally, AAA says you can count on Thanksgiving travel to be on the rebound. More than 53 million Americans are expected to be on the move for the holiday. That's around 13% higher than last year. The expected volume puts 2021 within five percent of pre-pandemic levels of Thanksgiving 2019. Despite gas costing over a dollar more per gallon than a year ago, AAA says 90% of people plan to travel by car as their preferred mode of travel. Still, with hundreds of thousands flying for the holiday and longer lines expected at airports, AAA says travelers could see an increase in flight cancellations and delays. Experts say to give yourself more than enough time to get to and from your destination and prepare for the unexpected.  AAA says those flying are at the mercy of airlines and weather. Airline staffing has been a problem as of late. While there has been a lot of talk within the industry about relieving that pressure for the holidays, it is unclear if adjustments will be adequate. AAA suggests people buy travel insurance if they are flying.

Hart County Fiscal Court meeting

Hart County's goal of establishing a local animal shelter is continuing.  Judge Executive Joe Choate says an agreement has been extended with the Bowling Green-Warren County Humane Society to take animals in the interim:

The comments come after Thursday's fiscal court meeting where the court approved hiring Brandy Nichols as Animal Control Director.

In other personnel action, the court accepted a resignation from Alexis Yates as Deupty Coroner and approved hiring Jonathan Nunn as Deputy Coroner. Kenneth Kidd was appointed to Hart County's Planning Committee.

The court approved a list of discretionary roads to be sent to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet for resurfacing funding and approved for the Judge Executive to sign onto the national Opioids settlement.

Other items from the agenda were mostly routine.  The jail report includes 175 inmates currently at the facility.  A first reading was held to set a 25 miles-per-hour speed limit on David Wintsch Road and a donation was accepted for a 1999 model ambulance to the Hart County Road Department. The court approved advertising to accept bids to sell a 2015 and a 2011 Ford Truck.

The next Hart County Fiscal Court meeting is set for December 16th.

State Legislature may debate hands-free state

When the state legislature convenes early next year, a high-profile bill may be debated over using electronic devices while driving.  While it is already against the law to text and drive, Representative James Tipton of Taylorsville is filing legislation to make Kentucky a hands-free state. His bill would make it illegal to use your hands to operate any personal communication device while driving — including cell phones, tablets and laptops. The bill still allows the hands-free use of a Bluetooth device to make calls while driving. Kentucky's current no texting while driving law is seen by many enforcement officials as difficult to cite and prove. There is already a federal motor carrier mandate with regard to commercial vehicles.  CMV drivers are not allowed to use hand-held devices. Legislation related to commercial hands-free regulation is largely attributed to the Hart County I-65 crash in March of 2010 which killed 11 family members traveling in a van. In that incident, a semi driver lost control while using a hand-held device, crossed the median and crashed into the van, head-on.

Barn destroyed near Wax

The barn was formerly used as a dairy parlor and featured two stories.  A portion of the barn had previously collapsed, leaving a pile of wood which may have helped accelerate the blaze.

The barn was mostly destroyed. No human or livestock injuries were reported.

A community in shock

27-year-old Erica Burden was found deceased Thursday morning just outside Upton. She had been missing since early Tuesday. Her vehicle was later found at Bonnieville Elementary school and her phone was unresponsive. Accounts of her disappearance --- possibly rendering aid to the eventual suspect --- were described to investigators, leading Kentucky State Police to an area just outside of Upton where remains were found and positively  identified. KSP Detective Courtney Milam tells us an autopsy is being performed to determine the exact cause of death.  A short time after the discovery, the separated husband of the victim, 53-year-old William (known as "Billy") Burden was located and taken into custody.  He is charged with domestic violence related murder, tampering with physical evidence and abuse of a corpse. Detective Milam says the abuse of a corpse charge is related to the manner in which the suspect is believed to have concealed the murder and disposed of the victim. Billy Burden is jailed at LaRue County Detention Center. Encouragement and support continue to pour in for the victim's family. Erica Burden leaves behind an elementary-aged daughter. A court date for arraignment is not yet listed on William "Billy" Burden's jail record.

Glasgow man acquitted in murder

The man on trial in a case involving a 2016 shooting in Hardyville has been acquitted of murder. Albert Stephens, of Glasgow, was initially charged with assault after Chris Holder was shot nearly five years ago.. Holder eventually died from injuries of the incident. A Hart County Grand Jury later indicted Stephens for one count of murder. The case went to  trial last week, lasting four days. During court proceedings, the defense says Stephens was outside a residence where Holder was hiding behind a bush. Holder jumped out and attacked Stephens, who was carrying a gun. The defense also claims it was commonly known for Holder to carry a firearm but Stephens did not know the night of the incident if Holder was armed. Stephens fired one shot and struck Holder. The defense said it was dark and raining, complicating Stephens reaction when Holder jumped out. The self-defense claim ultimately resulted in the jury being unable to come to terms of a conviction in the case. The trial took place in Munfordville wit special Judge Phil Patton presiding.
