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).

Chief Henry pleads 5th in hearing

In Hart County District Court this week, Henry took the stand to testify in a preliminary hearing case involving an individual, who was arrested by the Horse Cave Police Department and faces felony drug charges. The hearing was to determine if there was probable cause to move the case up to Circuit Court. The attorney representing the client, asked one question to Henry, "Did you plant drugs on my client?". Henry pled the

5th Amendment, which is not an admission of guilt, but protects an individual from being compelled in a criminal case to be a witness against himself. The case was ultimately dismissed and two other cases involving Horse Cave Police Department arrests were also dismissed the same day. Several clients who question the integrity of the police department and claim that evidence had been planted, have been represented by Glasgow Attorney Johnny Bell. The Horse Cave Police Department is currently under an active FBI investigation, where Police Chief Sean Henry and Officer Chris Trulock have been placed on unpaid administrative leave.

Radcliff man offered plea deal in bomb threat

A Radcliff man arrested in December for making a blanket threat about bombing "your school" has been offered a plea deal to settle the felony case. 26 year-old Jhonathan Raul Sanchez was arrested December 14th and charged with second-degree terroristic threatening - a Class D felony punishable by one to five years in prison, if convicted. Sanchez was offered a four-year plea deal by the Hardin County Commonwealth's Attorney's Office late last month. He would be parole eligible after serving 15% of his sentence - a little more than seven months. Sanchez already has served more than three months, which would be counted toward his eligibility date. Sanchez was arrested after someone called the Radcliff Police Department and also took a screenshot of a Dec. 14th Facebook post of Sanchez dressed in a black jacket and wearing a black ski mask with the words, "Praise allah. I bomb your school!!" on his page. According to court documents, Sanchez reportedly told Radcliff Police, "It was just a joke."

Late Breaking:  Horse Cave Police Department Changes

 

Officer David Graves is now Acting Chief of Horse Cave Police. Appointment to the position was made Friday by executive order of Mayor Randall Curry.


Other changes made Friday include termination of Officer Larry Martin. Restrictions have been in place on Martin’s law enforcement duties related to an ongoing investigation from when he was employed in Monroe County. Mayor Curry says those restrictions rendered Martin ineffective as an officer.


Since early March, Chief Sean Henry and Officer Chris Trulock have been on administrative leave with pay. Friday, both were moved to administrative leave without pay.
According to the Mayor, current city budgeting is set up to provide “five or six” officers. These moves will free resources to allow hiring in needed positions.


City officials still know very few details of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s probe into police department activity in Horse Cave. Mayor Curry and City Attorney Patrick Ross have fielded numerous inquiries in recent days but say there is no new information. Kentucky State Police assisted in securing potential evidence during a search of the department two weeks ago, but it becomes more apparent over time that details being made public will be at the discretion of the FBI. A spokesperson for the bureau confirmed the investigation on March 5th but despite numerous inquiries by media sources, no additional statements or information has been released. Generally considering timelines of FBI investigations, it is not likely for new information to be released until the bureau is ready to take additional action.


During our news conversation with Mayor Curry on Friday, he specifically asked to publicly thank the Hart County Sheriff’s Department for assistance over the past two weeks. He says the assistance combined with remaining Horse Cave personnel makes it possible to cover needed law enforcement community services such as placing an officer at Caverna Schools.

Local students participate in a walkout

Students at both Caverna and Hart County High Schools participated in Wednesday’s 10am nationwide school walkout honoring Florida shooting victims. Caverna High School administrators decided to allow students to attend an organized assembly in the gym.  Principal Chase Goff said a period silence was observed in remembrance of those killed in Florida and Western Kentucky.   Goff says he and other faculty spoke with students in attendance about actions Caverna Schools take to protect students.  He also says students were given the opportunity to share their thoughts during the assembly.

At Hart County High School, a handful of students gathered in the parking lot at 10am.  Principal Greg Cecil says he provided supervision of the walkout.  Much like the assembly at Caverna, Cecil says he talked about actions and protocol in place to protect students.  He says those attending were also able to use the opportunity to share their thoughts.

While Wednesday’s walkout was civil and otherwise uneventful here, the campaign caused controversy across the country.  Administrators and students worked together in planning an event in some cases while other administrators drew a hard line in the sand by issuing detention or other disciplinary action for students who decided to walk out of classes.

Horse Cave City Council Meeting

Horse Cave City Council met Monday evening for routine business then went into closed session to discuss personnel. The meeting comes a week after Federal Bureau of Investigation and Kentucky State Police officials seized computers, phones and other potential evidence as part of an on-going investigation.  After about 20 minutes, council chambers reopened and it was announced no action was taken during the closed session. Horse Cave Mayor Randall Curry and City Attorney Patrick Ross individually addressed members of the media after the meeting, saying little has been offered to them in the way of information regarding the FBI and KSP investigation.

Following the March 5th seizure, Horse Cave’s Police Department resumed operations on March 7th.  Of the city’s six officers, there are two noticeable absences.  Chief Sean Henry and Officer Chris Trulock are on administrative leave with pay.  Phones from both were among items seized by investigators.

Horse Cave Police Department Site Of FBI & KSP Focus

Horse Cave (WLOC) - Most everyone is aware of Monday's investigative event at Horse Cave's Police Department. Wild speculation along with unreliable reports surfaced on social media through much of the day in regards to FBI and Kentucky State Police presence at the department. Officially, FBI and KSP officials have only acknowledged an investigation process is underway, but no other details have been released by these agencies.

Through a conversation with Horse Cave Mayor Randall Curry late Monday, he tells us agents and troopers gathered information and interviewed people throughout the day. Without commenting further on the investigation, he explains much of his afternoon was spent communicating extensively with the city attorney and the commonwealth's attorney. Mayor Curry says no officers are on duty from the Horse Cave department at this time, but is assured by State Police Captain John Clark from Post 3 in Bowling Green that city residents are being provided with law enforcement services from State Police and Hart County's Sheriff's Department as needed. State police already serves as the dispatch agency for emergency personnel in Hart County. There has been no lapse in response to area residents.

Some social media and at least one news outlet imply Monday's event is connected to an ongoing investigation involving a city police officer when he was employed by Monroe County's Sheriff's Department. However, neither the FBI nor KSP has confirmed or denied any such connection. There are few facts available from legitimate sources at this time. We will continue to report factual information as it is received.

Wright (42) of Bowling Green.  Leslie Adams was transported to Vanderbilt Hospital via medical helicopter, where she succumbed to injuries at 12:15 p.m. Barrett Wright and a passenger, Larissa Harris (42) of Franklin, were treated and released from a local hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the collision.

Body cam backs up deputies story

A body cam proved to be very useful in backing up claims of an officer with the Barren County Sheriff's Department. Earlier this week, the Department of Social Services contacted the sheriff's office concerning a possible threat to two youths at a home in Barren County. The male perpetrator they were asked to find had an extensive felony background, so safety measures were taken. Using GPS, a deputy, along with a social services representative, arrived at a home and a man is at the front door with a gun. BC Sheriff Kent Keen says the body cam on the deputy shows he was following through with safety measures when he handcuffed the man.  Moments later, the Deputy realized this was not the man they were looking for. There were strong allegations posted on facebook against the Barren County Sheriff’s Office with numerous shares and comments. Barren County Sheriff Kent Keen said the information on facebook was wrong and the entire encounter was less than 5 1/2 minutes. Keen went on to say instances such as this are

becoming all too common.

He is accused in the shooting death of 27 year-old Jennifer Hendricks, of Bonnieville, on March 14th, 2017. Sgt. Johnathan Vaughn testified that Finley's whereabouts at the time were located by pings they received from his cellphone, which led them to his home in Radcliff. After searching Finley's home, Finley was found under the couch.  Trooper First Class Joshua Cummings testified he jumped on top of Finley because he had his hand on a gun. The gun was taken from Finley after he was tased. Finley resisted arrest leading to Cumming's left hand being broken. Sgt. Jimmy Anderson with the Kentucky State Police in Bowling Green also testified about the evidence collected at the crime scene. Finley's attorney asked for a motion to redirect verdict on the charges of murder, attempted murder and tampering with physical evidence stating that there hadn't been enough evidence to prove her client guilty of the charges.

Alternate truck route Horse Cave project

An alternate truck route road project for Horse Cave is under consideration. The project could eliminate the need for tractor-trailers to negotiate a turn at the intersection of Hwy 218 and 31-W in downtown Horse.

This would give tractor-trailers a more direct route to and from the town's industrial park off U.S. 31-W.  With recent expansion projects at several industries in Horse Cave, there is a high volume of tractor-trailer

traffic. This causes break down of the pavement at the intersection.  The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is working with a consulting firm in analyzing data that will help determine the best route for truck traffic to

take in Horse Cave. The project is in the early planning stages.

The man accused of assaulting two police officers February 7th and then causing an eight hour standoff appeared in court Wednesday morning. 40 year-old Christopher Spencer allegedly assaulted two Bowling Green Police officers while responding to a call at Clarion Inn, when they came across Spencer inside the hotel. When they attempted to apprehend Spencer, police say two officers were assaulted, before Spencer proceeded to flee, eventually stealing a car from the parking lot. Kentucky State Police were called later to a mobile home in Edmonson County as part of the search for Spencer. When troopers arrived, they found an unoccupied truck at the home which had been reported as "stolen" by the Warren County Sheriff's Department.

Police say right after 3:57 p.m., after multiple rounds of gas canisters were deployed into the home, Spencer exited. State Police say he refused to boey verbal commands to comply and lay on the ground. Spencer was tased by a member of Kentucky State Police Special Response Team and taken into custody without further incident. The case was bound over to the grand jury Wednesday morning.

Former principal sentenced for child porn

A former Larue County High School principal has been sentenced to nine years in federal prison for child pornography after uploading nude pictures of a student whose cellphone he confiscated. Stephen Kyle Goodlett apologized in Louisville federal court Thursday to his victims and the judge. Goodlett pleaded guilty last year to federal child pornography charges after a young alumnus of Larue County High discovered that naked images she had taken for her boyfriend at age 15 had been uploaded to a Russia-based pornography trading website. Authorities traced it to Goodlett and found many images on his devices. Prosecutors say Goodlett searched confiscated student cellphones for nude photos of teenage girls and saved them to thumb drives to be viewed and traded on the internet.

Flu deaths increasing in Kentucky

Kentucky Public Health Officials say the state has had 100 flu related deaths. At least four of those deaths have been children. Kentucky had 76 flu-related deaths last season. This is the seventh consecutive week of widespread flu activity in Kentucky. The flu season runs through late May, so State Epidemiologist Jonathan Ballard said it is not too late to get a flu shot. After getting a flu shot, it takes about two weeks to develop protection from the flu. The flu is highly contagious and can be life-threatening. Symptoms include fever, headache, cough, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing and body aches and can cause people to miss between three to five days of work or school. People with flu symptoms should ask a doctor if they need an antiviral drug.

Kentucky Film Industry a success

The Kentucky film industry is a success story in the making.  Since the General Assembly adopted a new incentive structure in 2015, Kentucky has benefited from a 900 percent increase in the number of productions shot in the Bluegrass State. Those productions have led to the creation of hundreds of new jobs and millions of dollars in direct investment in local economies, meaning that for every $1 that Kentucky has spent on film incentives, it has produced $10 in economic activity. Small towns are benefiting from increased traffic and investment that comes with a film production. Kentucky is also likely to announce private investment in what would be the first full-size production studio in 2018.
