Preliminary hearing for Edmonson County mother

A preliminary hearing is scheduled this week for an Edmonson County mother who is facing a murder charge.  Alexandra Richardson appeared in Edmonson County District Court Tuesday morning for an arraignment on multiple charges. She was arrested last Wednesday after an investigation by the Edmonson County Sheriff's Department. On Monday, December 2nd, Richardson drove across a flooded bridge on Oak Hill Road where her car became stuck and eventually submerged in floodwater. She and her 7-year-old son managed to get to safety, but her 22 month-old, Carson McCullough, did not. Richardson claims she did not see a "road closed" sign, and that there was a swift current.  Because she is charged with a felony, the judge entered her into a not guilty plea for the murder of her 22-month-old toddler. Sheriff Doyle says a preliminary report by the medical examiner's office in Tennessee rules the toddler died from asphyxiation due to near-drowning. Officials say Richardson also admitted to recently using methamphetamine and marijuana before driving across the bridge. She is also charged with Wanton Endangerment 1st degree (2 counts), and Operating Motor Vehicle under the Influence (drugs).

Power of attorney is going from $17 to $50; marriage licenses are going from $35.50 to $50; wills after probate, from $8 to $47; deeds, $17 to $50; and plates, $20 to $50.  Notary Public fees will be applied for online and will still be $19. According to Hart County Clerk Lisa Sanders, this is the first fee increase since the early 1990's.

Woman pleads guilty to hit and run

Alexis Ogles pleaded guilty on Monday in Warren Circuit Court to hitting and hurting 15 year-old Jada Rigsby with her car, as Rigsby walked along Industrial Drive the night of June 8th, 2018. Rigsby was flown to Vanderbilt in critical but stable condition. Ogles confessed to police that she was looking down at her phone when she struck Rigsby, then drove off. Ogles entered an Alford Plea to second degree assault, which means she does not admit any guilt, but agrees that the commonwealth has enough evidence to convict her. She also pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident and tampering with evidence. Warren Commonwealth's Attorney Chris Cohron is recommending a 12 year prison sentence for Ogles. Her final sentencing is set for January 27th, 2020.

Copper stolen from KYTC

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 3 is asking for the public's help with recent copper thefts involving roadway lighting. Thieves recently stole thousands of dollars worth of taxpayer funded copper wiring from KYTC lighting in Warren County. The Kentucky State Police and the Office of Inspector General from Frankfort are investigating the crime. KYTC District 3 says stealing of wiring for lighting on roadways not only wastes taxpayer dollars but also creates safety issues for drivers while they are getting replacement wiring to turn the lights back on. The public is asked to report any suspicious activity near lighting areas on roadways, especially at night, to local law enforcement. All KYTC vehicles and KYTC contract vehicles are clearly marked with labels and work personnel should be clearly visible with reflective material on clothing and other high-visibility attire. Any unmarked vehicles, including utility looking vehicles, should be considered suspicious and reported to local law enforcement immediately.

BCMS teacher pleads not guilty

A former Barren County Middle School teacher pled not guilty before Circuit Judge John Alexander Monday in reference to an ongoing sex crime case. 27 year-old William K. Gardner, of Glasgow, was recently indicted on three counts of first-degree unlawful transaction with a minor, illegal sex act (under 16 years old); and one count of unlawful use of electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual or other prohibited activities. Gardner was arrested October 26th after a student alleged Garner had sexual contact with her on multiple occasions. Garner later admitted to having sex with the juvenile, according to an arrest citation. Steve Thornton, Gardner's attorney, requested Alexander allow Gardner to be placed on home incarceration or a modification like that. Thornton said Garner was unable to pay his $75,000 cash bond and requested it be lowered. Thornton said if the bond were lowered to a reasonable amount, Garner's mother has agreed to "welcome him in her home." Alexander denied the request and said the severity of the crime and charges exceed Gardner's "pretrial risk levels." Alexander said the nature of the offense doesn't take into consideration the risk levels or risk assessments. He also said he was hesitant to modify Gardner's terms of incarceration because of the allegations. Gardner initially faced three counts of second-degree rape (no force), four counts of first-degree sexual abuse and one count of tampering with physical evidence charges. Second-degree rape is a class-C felony. Alexander said he also kept the bond set at $75,000 cash because he has not seen the details of the case. A judge can grant a defendant another option besides jail time while waiting to undergo a pretrial hearing. In this case, Alexander said he would take the request under "advisement," but he would not modify Gardner's holding specifications. Gardner's pretrial hearing is scheduled for January 27th, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.

Mammoth Cave Sing 2019

Since 1980, people have flocked to Mammoth Cave National Park each year not for dangling speleothems or expansive caverns, but for echoing acoustics.

It turns out the natural reverb of the limestone halls creates a great setting to sing holiday melodies. The tradition returns Saturday with the park’s 40th anniversary Annual Cave Sing.

“It’s a great way for us to kick off the holidays and do something different than cave tours,” park spokeswoman Molly Schroer said. “People have been singing in the cave for hundreds of years.”

Before the caroling Saturday, there will be piano music provided by concert pianist – and former Mammoth Cave guide – Janet Bass Smith in the Rotunda Room at the Lodge at Mammoth Cave at 1:00 p.m.

At 2:00 p.m., attendees will depart from the park’s visitor center for the historic entrance. The Mammoth Cave chapter of the Caveman Chorus will then perform 30 to 45 minutes of a cappella Christmas tunes.

After the singing, there will be complimentary refreshments and a visit from Santa Claus at the Lodge. The cave offers protective cover and temperatures that hover at about 54 degrees year-round.

Former BCMS teach indicted on felony charges

A former Barren County Middle School teacher was recently indicted on four felony charges after he was arrested October 26th and accused of raping a student. 27 year-old William K. Gardner, of Glasgow, was indicted on three counts of first-degree unlawful transaction with a minor, illegal sex act (under 16 years old), and one count of unlawful use of electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual or other prohibited activities. The charges are all felonies. Gardner was initially charged with three counts of second-degree rape (no force), four counts of first-degree sexual abuse ad one count of tampering with physical evidence. Those charges were dismissed, and Gardner was charged with three counts of first-degree unlawful transaction with a minor, illegal sex act (under 16 years old) and one count of unlawful use of electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual or other prohibited activities. The original charges were dismissed with prejudice. That means the charges are permanently dismissed. The charges were dismissed pursuant to Rules of Criminal Procedure 3.14. That means the grand jury did not find enough evidence to formally indict Gardner with those charges. Instead, he had the new charges brought against him. Jail records indicate his bond sets at $75,000 cash. He is scheduled to appear in court Monday at 10:00 a.m.

Judge considers motion in murder case

A motion was taken into submission Tuesday by Hart Circuit Judge Jack Seay in the case against Albert Stephens. Stephens is accused in the November 2016 shooting death of 57 year-old Christopher Lynn Holder, a former mayor of Cave City.  Holder was shot at the residence of Gary and Ann Logsdon, his father and mother-in-law, near Hardyville. He died from his injuries March 23rd, 2017, at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in

Nashville. The motion the judge decided to take under advisement Tuesday relates to the defense's request for police records and for guns that it believes Holder may have had in his possession on the night he was shot.

The commonwealth has asked that the guns not be disposed.  Seay has also taken under submission a motion filed by the commonwealth to exclude any evidence regarding grand jury testimony that was not recorded from being entered in to trial.  The case is set for review on Dec. 17th.

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.

Munfordville awarded $108,725 in funding

During Monday’s presentation at Munfordville City Hall, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) Department of Rural and Municipal Aid Commissioner Gray Tomblyn II announced $108,725 in discretionary funds for vital resurfacing work on East Center Street, Mill Street, Caldwell Street and Munford Avenue. Resurfacing repairs address existing surface cracks, potholes, raveling, and base failures. The investment supports Gov. Matt Bevin’s commitment to prioritize transportation infrastructure projects and increase economic opportunity across the Commonwealth.

“The Bevin Administration continues to focus on taking care of what we have at both the state and local level to address critical infrastructure needs that improve safety and support job creation and retention,” said KYTC Secretary Greg Thomas. “This funding builds upon existing transportation investments and allows the Cabinet to collaborate with local governments to identify projects that will have a large impact in communities.”

Munfordville Mayor John Johnson identified these roads as being among the most critical in the city.

“We appreciate the award of discretionary municipal funds from Gov. Bevin for improving our city streets,” said Mayor Johnson. “We are proud of our city. With these improvements, we can continue making Munfordville a better place to live, work and play.

Projects submitted to the Department of Rural and Municipal Aid for discretionary fund consideration were evaluated by the KYTC district staff to assess the condition of roads and determine the most critical needs based on factors such as safety, economic impact, and traffic volumes.

“This is great news for the people of Munfordville,” said Sen. Steve Meredith. “These resurfacing projects will have a noticeable impact on the community and I look forward to their completion. I’d like to thank the Governor for working with the general assembly to ensure that our local improvements are secured.”

School threat determined non-credible

A school threat posted on social medial has been found non-credible after an investigation.  Barren County Schools issued a statement Saturday via Twitter regarding a possible incident planned for Monday in an area school. The Kentucky State Police were made aware of the threat. The threats were sent to multiple law enforcement agencies through different social media outlets. Police say it appears that a hacker had used several social media accounts belonging to a subject. Bo Matthews, superintendent of Barren County Schools, also learned about the threat on Saturday and said it was being alleged for a school in the Glasgow area.

The state police insured school system officials that they felt it was a non-credible threat and the threats were not coming from Barren County students. Cornelius Faulkner, superintendent of Caverna Independent Schools, said the threat also mentioned the community of Horse Cave and that KSP notified the Horse Cave Police Department. Both Barren County and Caverna Independent School systems enhanced security. The location of the hacker is not known.

Serial killer labeled by FBI

A man indicted for the 1981 murder of a Smiths Grove woman has been labeled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as the most prolific serial killer in U.S. history.  According to an FBI news release, 79 year-old Samuel Little, has confessed to 93 murders occurring between 1970 and 2005.  According to the FBI, law enforcement has verified 50 of those slayings "with many more pending final confirmation." Little was indicted by a Warren County grand jury in December at the age of 78 for the 1981 killing of Linda Sue Boards. Her body was found on a Smiths Grove farm.  The investigation into Little for the Smiths Grove murder launched

when the FBI contacted the Kentucky State Police after they had matched the method used by Little in a California case to the slaying of Boards. Little was arrested at a homeless shelter in Kentucky in 2012 and

transported to California where he was wanted on drug charges. He was charged with murder there after detectives matched his DNA to three unsolved murders. Little received three consecutive life sentences for the murders.  According to the FBI, Little was willing to speak with the Texas Rangers in exchange for moving prisons. He eventually admitted to the Texas murder and was extradited there in 2018.

Fall ushers in flu season

Health officials are reminding Kentuckians that it's time to get their flu shots, to protect themselves, as well as others. Kentucky has already seen 154 confirmed cases of the flu since Aug. 4th. Last year, which was the nation's longest flu season ever, 194 Kentuckians died from the flu, two of which were children. Preventive measures to combat the flu include: washing your hands frequently cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze and stay home if you are sick. The flu season has been particularly bad in the last few years, largely because the vaccine has not been a perfect match for the circulating virus, but the Kentucky Department for Public Health says the vaccine has been changed this year in hopes it will offer better protection.  Flu season runs through May 2020.

West Virginia scheduled to appear in court

A West Virginia man charged with killing two Elizabethtown teens nearly a year ago in a car crash is expected to appear in Hardin Circuit Court to have a pair of hearing dates set in the double murder case.

Shawn Welsh, 37, of Marion, West Virginia, is charged in the Oct. 20, 2018, deaths of Jacob Barber, 18, and Katarina Peeters, 17, both of Eliza­beth­town. The two-vehicle crash following a high-speed effort to escape police occurred at the intersection of U.S. 31W and Battle Training Road.

His appearance today before Circuit Judge Ken Howard is to set dates for two hearings — one for competency to stand trial and the other over whether or not to allow details of a traffic stop following the crash. Police reports said Welsh fled on foot before he was captured by authorities.

The hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m.

Welsh is scheduled to stand trial Oct. 23. Com­mon­wealth’s Attorney Shane Young said he expects the trial date to remain after the hearing dates.

The collision occurred at about 8:30 p.m. as Welsh reportedly fled from Flaherty to Radcliff in a stolen Chevrolet Silverado and crashed the vehicle into a Honda Accord the teens were in. Barber and Peeters were pronounced dead at the scene by the Hardin County Coroner’s Office. Two others suffered serious injuries in the crash.

The trial was scheduled to begin Aug. 12 with jury selection, but has been postponed.

All four teenagers attended John Hardin High School. Barber had graduated early from Hardin County High School shortly before the crash.

Welsh was at the Ken­tucky Correctional Psy­chiatric Center in La Grange for a stay in July and August undergoing an evaluation.

He has been indicted on two counts of murder; two charges of first-degree assault; first-degree persistent felony offender; receiving stolen property more than $500; first-degree fleeing or evading police in a motor vehicle and first-degree possession of methamphetamine.

According to an arrest citation, Welsh crashed the truck into the Honda as the teens attempted to cross U.S. 31W. Barber was the driver of the car.

The estimated 21-mile pursuit started in Meade County where a deputy sheriff reportedly saw the Silverado driving down a dead-end road with no houses. When the deputy approached the vehicle, it accelerated toward the officer, who had to swerve to avoid a head-on collision, according to a citation.

Welsh is alleged to have traveled the distance in 18 minutes, passing through residential areas in Vine Grove and Radcliff. Officers placed stop sticks at the intersection of Highland Avenue and Ky. 313, but the vehicle swerv­ed off the road to avoid them and almost hit an officer, according to a citation.

When Welsh made his way onto U.S. 31W, the vehicle drove down the southbound shoulder, ran the red light at Battle Training Road and hit Bar­ber’s car. He then ran from the truck and was apprehended, according to the citation.

A passenger in Welsh’s vehicle, Laura Neville, 37, of Morgan­own, West Virginia, was indicted for first-degree possession of a controlled substance – methamphetamine. She remains in the Hardin County Detention Center on a $10,000 cash bond.

Welsh is held in lieu of a $1 million cash bond at the jail.

Fatality in fatal crash in Hardin County

KSP Post 4 troopers responded to multiple vehicle collisions in Hardin County early Friday morning. At approximately 1:20 a.m. EST, KSP Post 4 received a call from Hardin County Control of a collision involving multiple tractor-trailers and passenger cars on I-65 southbound at the 79 mille-marker in Hardin County. The preliminary investigation revealed five commercial vehicles and two passenger cars were involved in the collision. It was determined that one of the passenger cars traveling southbound for unknown reasons, lost control and went into the path of a semi tractor-trailer grain truck causing the passenger car to overturn after being hit by the semi. The passenger car was struck by another semi that resulted in a chain reaction with two other semis and another passenger car. The driver of the first passenger car and one of the semi drivers were flown to University of Louisville for life threatening injuries and was listed in critical but stable condition. The other drivers involved were transported to Hardin Memorial Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. At approximately 7:06 a.m., 47 year-old Michael W. Surber, of Sharonville, OH, operating a Fed Ex semi with tandem trailers was stopped in the right lane due to the other collision that had traffic stopped. 42 year-old Mickey E. Williams, of Salyersville, operating a 2013 Chevy pickup failed to observe the Fed Ex semi stopped before colliding with the rear trailer. Williams was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Hardin County Coroner's Office. Surber was uninjured and did not require medical attention. A co-driver of Surber's vehicle was taken to Hardin Memorial Hospital for non-life threatening injuries and later released. I-65 southbound between the 86 and 76-mile markers was shut down for nearly 12 hours to allow troopers to reconstruct both collisions. The Hardin County Sheriff's Office, Glendale and Sonora Fire Departments, Hardin County EMS, E-town Fire Department, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and the Hardin County Coroner's Office assisted KSP Post 4 at the scene. The collisions are still under investigation by Detective/Reconstructionist Bryan Washer and Sergeant Adam Likins.

Traffic Alert: I-65 Southbound in Hardin County Between Elizabethtown and Sonora
A secondary southbound crash has occurred near Mile Marker (MM) 83. For clarification, the interstate is blocked at MM 79 and 83. Both locations involve fatalities so reconstruction is taking place at each incident scene. The mandatory detour is now Exit 86 (Glendale) to US 31W and back on I-65 at the Exit 76 Interchange (Upton) to continue south. Motorists stuck in the queue between each scene and an exit ramp are slowly being turned around.
Motorists approaching the area are strongly encouraged to plan alternate routes in advance of the mandatory detour. For those traveling through toward Bowling Green, the best option is Exit 91 to Western Kentucky Parkway Westbound, to I-165 Southbound and rejoin I-65 in Bowling Green. This route is only an approximate 20 minute deviation from a normal southbound trip down I-65 between the two locations.
Local traffic along US 31W and intersecting routes is also congested. Please be aware of increased volumes and use additional caution at intersections and entrances.
Given conditions of multiple commercial vehicles and personal occupancy vehicles involved and a high volume of traffic to manage on an interstate facility, emergency responders and assisting agencies are working as safely and quickly as possible to clear the area.

Rate increase from Horse Cave Water

The Horse Cave Water Company (HCWC) has announced its first rate increase in nine years. This increase has been necessitated by the increase of wholesale rates being charged by Green River Valley Water District (GRVWD). The new rates to be carged by HCWC were adopted by the Horse Cave City Council during the March, 2019 council meeting. The new rates were approved with the stipulation that the increase could not go into effect until GRVWD increased its rates. The new rates will appear on the bill that HCWC customers will receive on or about November 1st. For a customer using only the minimum of 1,000 gallons a month, the increase would be $0.58. For a typical household of 4 people, the monthly usage is about 4,000 gallons. This would amount to an increase of $2.32 per month.

Pending hospital sale upheld

The pending sale of Hardin Memorial Hospital to Baptist Healthcare Systems overcame a legal hurdle Friday when the Kentucky Court of Appeals rendered a 3-0 decision agreeing the May 2018 sale was valid. The Court of Appeals concurred with an Oct. 4th, 2018 decision by Hardin Circuit Judge Kelly Easton finding Hardin County followed the law in negotiating the $361.4 million sale of HMH assets to its management partner of more than 20 years. According to the 11-page Court of Appeals ruling, the challenge filed by Dr. lLrry Hall, a retired physician and one-time chief medical officer of HMH, "lacked stand" to stop the pending sale of the property and he "failed to comply with the procedural requirements underlying an action to enforce provisions" of the state's Open Meetings Act. The ruling acknowledges Hardin Fiscal Court in a November 2016 open session of a regular meeting initiated a request for proposals process to be sent to "potential strategic partners nationwide." The options included the possible sale of assets.
