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.

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.

Horse Cave Connector Preferred Route Selected

An alignment has been chosen as the preferred alternative for the future Horse Cave Connector. It is the green highlighted route which was previously publicized out of six possibilities (including a no-build option). The route connects KY 218 near Church Street to US 31W just south of Warehouse Road and features a bridge over the adjacent CSX Rail Line.

Currently, the state transportation budget has $1.5 Million allocated for right of way acquisition within the next two years. Future funding for utilities and construction will depend on the next transportation budget in 2020. In the best case scenario, construction could begin in five or six years.

Hart County government officials and stakeholders are currently in the application process to compete for a federal grant which has the potential to expedite the project by providing funding ahead of anticipated state allocations.
