Cold Snap Triggers Spike in Local Energy Use

The unusually cold start to 2018 has resulted in higher than normal energy use. Heating claims about a 42 percent share of overall energy use in U.S. homes.  Farmers RECC is encouraging members to be aware of their energy use and take steps to help manage electric bills, which are also expected to be higher than usual as a result of increased usage. To keep an eye on daily energy use, Farmers RECC offers the ‘Your Meter’ tool, which can be accessed through the ‘Member Center’ of their website.  Farmers RECC also offers several payment options for members, including levelized billing, as well as a Pre-Pay option that allows members to pay for their electricity before they use it.

Warren County couple arrested

The Warren County Sheriff's Office arrested 44 year-old Steven Doss Friday night after allegedly threatening to kill both himself and his wife. WCSO initially responded to a domestic disturbance call, but deputies say Doss drove away in a Ford Mustang. The car was found near Pearl Street and Highway 185 when deputies say Doss took off toward Butler County, failing to pull over when asked. Deputies had reason to believe Doss was holding his wife captive inside the car. The ensuing pursuit, which reached speeds over 100 mph, ended when Doss reached a dead-end road in Butler County. Deputies say Doss got out of his car and actively resisted arrest. Deputies determined that Doss was in possession of a large knife and was under the influence of methamphetamine. Doss was arrested and found to have an active warrant in Logan County. Subsequently, WCSO also arrested Doss's wife, who also had an active warrant for her arrest. Kimberly and Steven Doss were both placed in the Warren County Regional Jail.

City of Edmonton water violation fine

The Kentucky Division of Water has issued the city of Edmonton a $2000 fine due to a violation. The violation involves the city's waste water treatment plant. Roger Boyers, an engineer with Water Management Services in Nashville spoke at Monday night's City Council meeting.  He explained that the violation was possibly due to heavy cleaning that occurred when the new elementary school was getting ready to open.  Boyers said a chemical used like a cleaning agent was highly acidic and apparently, caused all of the bacteriological treatment processes to be ineffective.  The Kentucky Division of Water did not accept the city's initial offer, but agreed to accept an offer of $2,000 as the fine. The city council voted to pay the fine. The school would not be asked to pay the fine, as the original source of the violation could not be proven.

E-town elderly woman suffers gunshot wound

An elderly woman was flown to University Hospital in Louisville Wednesday afternoon after firing multiple gunshots from inside her Elizabethtown home and receiving a self-inflicted wound to the neck. Elizabethtown Police Department Officers and Hardin County EMS initially responded to perform a welfare check around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday at a residence in the 100 block of Lakeview Drive of an elderly female who had attempted to harm herself. When police arrived, they were initially unable to make contact with the woman.

Former students file federal lawsuit

Five former Larue County High School students filed a federal lawsuit last week against the Larue County Schools District and former high school Principle Kyle Goodlett. The basis of the complaint in the lawsuit deals with Goodlett while he was either the principal or assistant principal of Larue County High School between 2012 and 2016. According to documents filed in U. S. District Court in Louisville, Goodlett admitted to investigators he had an addiction to pornography and that he transferred images from phones confiscated from students to his personal thumb drive without their consent or knowledge. He also stated he would take the images and share them to a Russian website with the intent of trading for more images. A forensic review determined Goodlett possessed 436 images and 11 videos of child pornography on at least 32 different electronic devices. The five students, all female, are represented by Joseph H. Mattingly III. The former students say in the complaint their rights were violated under the Fourth Amendment of the U. S. Constitution and Article 1, Section 10 of the Kentucky Constitution, which deal with people's right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure. The plaintiffs also filed a class action on behalf of other Larue County students between 2012-2016 who had phones confiscated and their private images uploaded to one or more websites without their consent. The exact number is believed to be "in excess of 50 students." The complaint further states the plaintiffs are asking for punitive damages, attorney fees, trial by jury and court costs. A lawsuit provides only one view of a dispute. Larue County Schools and Goodlett have up to 21 days to answer the complaint after receiving notification from the court.

Stiffer penalties for DUI in Hardin County

A Kentucky Supreme Court upheld the Brianna Taylor Act Thursday, which extends the look-back period for intoxicated drivers to 10 years. The new law was challenged in two DUI cases in Warren County last year, but was upheld after being signed into law April 2016 by Gov. Matt Bevin. The Act was named after Brianna Taylor, who at 17, was killed by a drunken driver just days after graduating from Elizabethtown High School in 2014. The object of the law is to hold repeat DUI offenders accountable and hopefully, reduce the number of DUI cases.

The complaint involves details of the cell phone/media devise policy that was in place while Goodlett was principal.  After Goodlett's arrest in October 2016, Larue County Schools stopped confiscating cell phones and the high school revised its policy in December 2016 to reflect the change. The plaintiffs also filed a class action on behalf of other Larue County students between 2012-2016 who had phones confiscated and their private images uploaded to one or more websites without their consent.

Veterans Home from Honor Flight

Lee Bratcher along with 66 other Kentucky veterans received a heroes’ welcome home Saturday from patriotic, flag-waving citizens who filled the entire terminal at Lexington’s Blue Grass Airport. The veterans participated in a one-day tour of war memorials in the nation’s capital. This was the seventh Honor Flight sponsored by Farmers RECC and Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives. The mission was coordinated by Winchester-based Honor Flight Kentucky.  Several of the veterans, who served during World War II, Korea and Vietnam, said it was the best day of their lives.  “It was truly a great day,” said Lee Bratcher, who served in the Army during World War II.

As a bagpipe band led the returning veterans through the Lexington terminal, more than 1,500 family members and patriotic citizens waved “Welcome Home” signs and shook their hands. Throughout the day, people greeted the veterans with smiles, requests for photos and many thanks for their sacrifices in the cause of freedom.

When the veterans arrived at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport that morning, a gauntlet of cheerleaders, football players and other citizens clapped as a chorus from the U.S. Military Academy sang patriotic songs.

After boarding three buses, a police escort cleared highway traffic and took them directly to the Air Force Memorial and the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial. At the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery, the group watched the changing of the guard and participated in an emotional wreath-laying ceremony. The day was made even more special by Mr. Bratcher, as he turned 91 on the day of the Honor Flight.

Mammoth Cave National Park proposes increase

Mammoth Cave National Park Superintendent Barclay Trimble announced that the Park is seeking public comment on a proposed increase in user fees, which would take effect in 2018. Public comment will be accepted from September 20 through October 13, 2017. Written comments may be submitted through the National Park Service planning website at parkplanning.nps.gov/MACA. The authority to charge recreational fees at national parks stems from the 2004 Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act. The general cave tours would increase by roughly $1 to $3, and specialty cave tour would increase by approximately $3 to $6. Houchin Ferry camping would increase from $12 to $15. A new fee of $10 would be established for backcountry and river camping. The new backcountry fee will allow people to reserve their campsite online from across the country, and allow visitors to preplan a trip to the park. Another new fee ($2) would be established for recharging electric vehicles. Later this year the park will begin installing two level-2 charging stations in the visitor center parking lot. At Mammoth Cave, 80 percent of the money collected is used in the park to provide facilities and services that have direct benefit to park visitors. The remaining 20 percent helps support projects in the 270 national park units that do not charge entrance fees, like nearby Abraham Lincoln Birthplace NHP in Hodgenville, Ky.
