Phone scams reported in Barren County

The Barren County Sheriff's Office has received complaints of phone scams recently in the area. Everyone is reminded to use extreme caution before giving out any personal information or sending out any money before verifying that the organization you are giving to is legit. Scammers lately have been calling and pretending to be family members and are asking for you to send them money via money orders or other means. Also, the sheriff's office has received several complaints of citizens renting houses through text and phone messages. Once they send the payments, they find out that the house is privately owned and is either for sale or is rental property belonging to someone else. Scammers usually find these locations on realty and or advertising sites online, and in most cases even provide pictures of the property. Please visit and do site visits with whomever you are trying to rent from to make sure you are not getting scammed. In all cases reported, the scammer has asked for the money to be sent out of state.

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.

Two charged in murder appear in court

Two people charged in a June murder of an Elizabethtown man has appeared in Hardin Circuit Court. 50 year-old Lisa Harvey, of Elizabethtown, and 43 year-old Rick Fisher, of Louisville, appeared Tuesday afternoon in Hardin Circuit Court on charges of complicity to commit murder and complicity to tampering with physical evidence. Harvey and her attorney, Ashley Michael, of Louisville, sought a reduction of her $500,000 cash bond that was denied by Circuit Court Judge Kelly Mark Easton, noting the seriousness of the offense. Harvey and Fisher are accused in the death of 58 year-old Andrew Folena. He died from blunt force trauma to multiple areas of his body. Folena's body was found in a shallow grave off Ralph Franklin Road, near the Ring Road-Patriot Parkway intersection, after authorities received an anonymous tip about a possible homicide. His body was found under "a few inches". The makeshift gravesite was just feet past a barn on the property of a home Folena was renting. The case remains an open investigation.

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.

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.

Two others are also facing criminal charges: Monica Berry, a former medical assistant, and Brandon Gordon.

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 %.

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.

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."

The citation says the 17 year-old boy told police he borrowed a gun from a friend, intending to shoot Boling in the legs because he had hurt the teen's mother. The teen says he opened fire when Boling approached him aggressively. He initially told police he threw the gun out a car window, but later said his friend might have it. Police found a message on the teen's phone discussing a plan to shoot Boling "well before the shooting occurred." The teen was arrested on charges of murder-domestic violence and tampering with physical evidence. It's unclear whether he has a lawyer.

"Reverend" pleads guilty to murder

A Kentucky man who legally changed his name to "The Reverend" has pleaded guilty to killing his roommate at an assisted living center. The 38 year-old formerly known as Robert Allen Reynolds, pleaded guilty but mentally ill to murder Wednesday. The Bowling Green Daily News reports the plea means The Reverend takes responsibility for intentionally causing the death of 71 year-old Gary Glueck. Glueck was stabbed with a pen and coat hanger and strangled with an electrical cord at a Scottsville assisted living center in February 2016. The Reverend was found competent to stand trial in December after a judge heard testimony from two psychiatrists and a detective. One of the psychiatrists retained by the Reverend's lawyer, said The Reverend's medication was "a significant factor in keeping him on track."
