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.

Cave City physician and wife arraigned on federal charges

Dr. Chanda Reddy pleaded not guilty in U.S. District Court to all counts in an indictment charging him with two counts of conspiring to commit health care fraud and one count each of conspiring to make false statements relating to health care matters and conspiring to illegally use a DEA registration number issued to another person. Dr. Reddy’s wife, Vinodini Dundumalla Reddy, was arraigned on two counts of conspiring to commit health care fraud and a count of conspiring to make false statements relating to health care matters.

Both Reddy and his wife are accused of billing Medicare under Dr. Reddy’s National Provider Identifier for services performed by nurse practitioners while he was out of the office. Medicare reimburses a higher rate for services performed by a doctor instead of a nurse practitioner.

Dr. Reddy has also been accused of conspiring to have pre-signed controlled substance prescriptions for his nurse practitioners to use while he was away from his practice.

Two others are also facing criminal charges: Monica Berry, a former medical assistant, and Brandon Gordon. Berry & Gordon are each charged with conspiring to unlawfully distribute controlled substances, three counts of conspiring to commit health care fraud and three counts of aggravated identity theft. Both pleaded not guilty to all counts.

Dr. Reddy, his wife and Gordon are free on $25,000 unsecured bonds, while Berry is free on her own recognizance.

New taxes for Ky residents next week

Kentucky residents will pay a slew of new taxes beginning next week. Starting Sunday, prices for things like car repairs, tanning bed visits, veterinarian care and gym memberships will jump 6 % because of a new law. On the same day, nonprofits will have to add an extra 6% for admission prices to cultural and athletic events. The change comes from a recent state Supreme Court ruling that says the Kentucky Constitution does not exempt nonprofits from state sales and use taxes. Republicans are defending the taxes by noting they will spend the extra money on public education. The changes also include a tax cut for many. Most state taxpayers had paid 6 % of their taxable income to the state. Now, they will pay 5 %.

Traffic will continue being reduced to one lane in each direction. Wedging of these bridge ends will eliminate rough transitions. Wedging of all lanes in both directions should be complete by 3pm Monday. Delays in both directions will be possible in the Exit 65 vicinity, especially midday and early afternoon.
On Tuesday, June 19th, wedging will take place on I65 bridges over Bacon Creek near Bonnieville at Exit 71.

Reminder: Never leave children inside vehicles

As temperatures rise, Kentucky State Police are reminding people not to leave children inside vehicles. Sgt. Josh Lawson says on a 75-degree day, an infant could die of hyperthermia in only 15 minutes, depending on the circumstances. Lawson says curiosity can also be a problem when a child playing outside ends up in a car and becomes overcome with heat in a short time. Lawson says people should never leave a child in an unattended car, even with the windows down. Also, make sure everyone is out of the car when unloading. Always lock the car, and if a child is missing, check the car and trunk first. Use a stuffed animal placed in the front seat or a purse or briefcase in the back as a reminder that a child is inside.

New Hart County Jail inmate work program

A new program at the Hart County Jail is expanding job opportunities for inmates. Inmates approved for the program, will be able to fill out a job resume which is sent to a state approved employer to decide if the applicant is suited for the job. When the inmate is hired, they are treated just like any other worker. This also gives employers another avenue to fill jobs. Hart County Jailer Israel Bergenson says many inmates find themselves in hard financial situations while in jail and even after being released. This program will allow participants a more solid footing when released, allowing a portion of the participant's paycheck to be withheld and directly applied to what they owe, such as repayment of fines and restitution.  Currently there are 10 inmates in the work program and Kentucky Chrome is the approved workplace.

The second Grayson County teacher in a month, has been arrested in relation to sexual abuse charges. John W.

Cariel has been charged with Distribution of Obscene Matter to Minors, 1st offense, Sexual Abuse, 1st degree, Sodomy 2nd degree and Prohibited use of Electronic Community System to Procure Minor: Sex offenses. The alleged incidents that led to the charges occurred in October 2017. Further charges may be pending. Grayson County School Superintendent Doug Robinson released the following statement Tuesday morning: "A student tip to a School Resource Officer alleging inappropriate student contact has led to the arrest of Grayson County Middle School teacher, John Cariel. The alleged contact took place through technology in the fall of 2017 and off school premises. Teachers are placed in a position of supreme trust. Students and their families should always have confidence in that. We realize that trust within our own system has now been broken due to the actions of a few. "Grayson County Schools will not tolerate even a suggestion of improper behavior or contact between teachers and students. Any allegations will be handed over immediately to law enforcement for investigation. If verified, they will lead to arrest, prosecution and termination from both the district and the Education professional Standards Board to ensure these individuals can never again work with children."

Public meeting for Hwy 218 & 31-W connector

From completely rebuilding US 31W along Cave City and Horse Cave to doing nothing at all, area citizens spoke their opinions at a Tuesday night public meeting aimed at gathering input on a proposed project to redirect commercial vehicle traffic between I65 and Horse Cave's industrial area.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials and consultants presented five general concepts to the public for a better connection between KY 218 and US 31W.  Two of them join 31W south of Horse Cave's factories while two of them join to the north.  All four intersect KY 218 just west of Friendship Baptist Church.  A fifth concept rebuilds the current stretch of KY 218 west of US 31W in a center turning lane configuration with a thru right turn configuration at the downtown traffic signal.

KYTC and the project team will compile provided comments from the meeting along with input from industry stakeholders and present results late summer of this year.

Funds for design of a selected project and right of way purchasing are included in the current two year transportation budget.  Utility relocation funds are identified in the transportation plan.  No construction money is identified.  Complete estimated costs of the presented concepts range from nine to fifteen million dollars.

Anyone who missed the meeting but would like to review the presentation and provide input can still do so by going to the KYTC District 4 web page at transportation.ky.gov or by looking up the District 4 Facebook Page at Facebook.com slash KYTCD4.

Larue County town approves alcohol sales

A Larue County town has narrowly approved alcohol sales within city limits in a special election. Hodgenville voters split 347 - 337 on Tuesday's ballot. The town has more than 3,000 residents. The initiative was spearheaded by Hodgenville City Councilwoman Lisa Reidner, who was motivated by the potential revenue, sales and taxes for the city. Per state law, she bore the cost of the election as the petitioner. She said the effort cost her $10,000, some of which was offset by donations. Reidner's campaign overcame yard signs posted around town that said "Alcohol destroys lives." Retired police officer Dustin Toler said he'd been to the scene of too many DUIs.

Hart County Schools closed Friday

Hart County Schools Supt. Ricky Line released the following statement:

"Hart County Schools will be closed on Friday, April 13th. As you are probably aware from numerous news reports and social media updates, the Kentucky legislature is in the final days of their regular session this week. There has been much concern expressed over key issues affecting all Kentuckians, including potential changes to the pension system for teachers and all state employees as well as state funding for education. In order to allow our staff members to be present in Frankfort tomorrow as legislators possibly take action on these items which will directly impact our ability to serve our students, Hart County Schools will be closed on Friday, April 13th. While we realize this may be inconvenient for some families and is a slight disruption of our instructional schedule, we believe it is critical in joining other school districts across the state to enable our staff members to be present in Frankfort tomorrow to represent the needs of our students and the profession. We are fortunate to have dedicated teachers and staff members who are passionate about our students and care about the future of public school education and its value to the future of all students and our community as a whole. Thank you for your continued support of our schools. As a result of this schedule change, the last day of the school year will now be Thursday, May 17th."

Threat made toward school

A threat made toward a school in New Mexico last week caused some concern for Caverna High School. A picture had been posted on Snapchat which showed a person holding a rifle and referring to Clovis High School, which is also known as CHS. After numerous shares and likes on social media, the post soon arrived in the news feed in South Central Kentucky. Believing that the post was meant for Caverna High School, the post was shared locally and brought to the attention of Caverna School officials. Superintendent Cornelius Faulkner says these types of threats are posted where young people are active on social media and can sometimes be false information. Faulkner went on to say school safety and educating the students are the top priorities. And the spreading of false misinformation is a real issue. He encourages parents to pay close attention to what their children post online. There was no threat to Caverna High School.

Metcalfe County murder for hire plea deal

A Metcalfe County man accused of murder for hire, has pleaded guilty in U. S. District Court. 51 year-old Kevin Scott Gentry, of Greensburg, was originally indicted by a Barren County Grand Jury in March 2016 on one count of criminal solicitation to murder. The indictment occurred after Gentry was arrested in Glasgow after a meeting with undercover detectives during which he provided information about the intended victim and $2,500, with another $2,500 to be provided after the job was finished. The meeting and a phone call were recorded. KSP requested that the alleged intended target's identity be withheld to avoid re-victimization of that person. The federal indictment, which alleges that Gentry used a telephone with intent that a murder be committed as consideration for a promise to pay something of value, was filed in Metcalfe County in July 2016. Gentry pleaded guilty to the charge Monday and waived his right to appeal. It was also discussed that there is no mandatory minimum for this charge, with a maximum of 10 years in prison with three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine.  Asst. U.S. Attorney Larry Fentress said the U.S. recommends a sentence and fine on the lowest end of the guideline. Gentry will remain in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service until his sentencing hearing, scheduled for July 9th in U.S. District Court.

Traffic Advisory - I65 Heavy Spring Break Traffic

Motorists should prepare for extremely heavy southbound volumes when traveling Interstate 65 this weekend. In recent years, slow conditions were reported on Friday going into the week when many public schools are on Spring Break. Delays were not the result of incidents or construction activities. In these instances, volumes are simply heavier than two lanes can accommodate. Stop-and-go traffic is the result. Friday afternoon is expected to be the height of volume, but heavier than usual traffic is likely to continue through the weekend and the remainder of Spring Break week.

While northbound traffic is also expected to noticeably heavier the weekend coming out of Spring Break, it should be less concentrated than southbound traffic the weekend going in.

We ask motorists to plan ahead for these conditions. Weather will also be a factor. Chances of rain are in the forecast for much of this weekend and early next week, creating the possibility of reduced visibility and stopping distance.

With regard to construction between Mile Points 83 and 95, no lane closures are planned through the Spring Break period. Work will not impact traffic.

Motorists are asked to be patient and pay close attention to signage through the construction zone. Be aware of nearby vehicles and always allow space to react to unexpected conditions.

For updated travel/road conditions visit www.goky.ky.gov and our KYTC District 4 Facebook page at www.facebook.com/kytcd4 (@kytcd4).
