DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME ENDS NOV. 4, 2018

 
On Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018 most Americans will set their clocks back an hour, as daylight saving time (sometimes called daylight savings time) comes to a close, and most of the United States will "lose" an hour of daylight. These spring and fall clock changes continue a long tradition started by Benjamin Franklin to conserve energy. 
 
Why do we still have daylight saving time?
 
Fewer than 40 percent of the world's countries observe daylight saving time, according to timeanddate.com. However, those who do take advantage of the natural daylight in the evenings. That's because the days start to get longer as Earth moves from the winter season to spring and summer, with the longest day of the year on the summer solstice. During the summer, Earth, which revolves around its axis at an angle, is tilted directly toward the sun (at least its top half).
 
Regions farthest away from the equator and closer to the poles get the most benefit from the DST clock change, because there is a more dramatic change in sunlight throughout the seasons.
 
Research has also suggested that with more daylight in the evenings, there are fewer traffic accidents, as there are fewer cars on the road when it's dark outside. More daylight also could mean more outdoor exercise (or exercise at all) for full-time workers.
 
 
Myths and Interesting Facts
 
Turns out, people tend to have more heart attacks on the Monday following the "spring forward" switch to daylight saving time. Researchers reporting in 2014 in the journal Open Heart, found that heart attacks increased 24 percent on that Monday, compared with the daily average number for the weeks surrounding the start of DST.
 
Before the Uniform Time Act was passed in the United States, there was a period in which anyplace could or could not observe DST, leading to chaos. For instance, if one took a 35-mile bus ride from Moundsville, West Virginia, to Steubenville, Ohio, he or she would pass through no fewer than seven time changes, according to Prerau. At some point, Minneapolis and St. Paul were on different clocks.
 
A study published in 2009 in the Journal of Applied Psychology showed that during the week following the "spring forward" into DST, mine workers got 40 minutes less sleep and had 5.7 percent more workplace injuries than they did during any other days of the year.
 
Pets notice the time change, as well. Since humans set the routines for their fluffy loved ones, dogs and cats living indoors and even cows are disrupted when, say, you bring their food an hour late or come to milk them later than usual, according to Alison Holdhus-Small, a research assistant at CSIRO Livestock Industries, an Australia-based research and development organization.
 
The fact that the time changes at 2 a.m. at least in the U.S., may have to do with practicality. For instance, it's late enough that most people are home from outings and setting the clock back an hour won't switch the date to "yesterday." In addition, it's early enough not to affect early shift workers and early churchgoers, according to the WebExhibits, an online museum.

SCAM ALERT FROM THE BOYLE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE

 

***SCAM ALERT***

Boyle county citizens are receiving phone calls from scammers, whom are stating they are deputies from the Boyle County Sheriff's Office. These low-lifes are using actual deputy's names, and are very convincing.

They may tell you that a loved one has been arrested, and tell you the name of an actual relative. They then state that you must post bail by purchasing pre-loaded cards, such as Google Play, and sending the cards to them.

Please understand that the Boyle County Sheriff's Office will NEVER contact you regarding posting bail. We do not participate in any part of the bail process.

If you receive a suspicious phone call, text, email, or letter, please contact us. Do not allow these creeps to victimize you!

FLORIDA MAN ARRESTED FOR STEALING CREDIT CARDS IN TAYLOR CO.

 

On Saturday, October 20, 2018 the Taylor County Sheriff's Office received a complaint that two credit cards had been stolen from an individual in Taylor County. The victim stated that over $4,000.00 worth of fraudulent purhases had been made with the stolen credit cards. After an investigation by the victim and the Taylor County Sheriff's Office, it was discovered that John Mitchell of Fort Myers, Florida was responsible for the theft of the cards and the fraudulent purchases. Mitchell was located with the two cards in his possession. He was arrested and lodged in the Taylor County Detention Center.

 

 

WHAT TO DO IF YOUR CREDIT CARD IS STOLEN
 
1. IDENTIFY ALL FRAUDULENT CHARGES
When you first log into your account and see that it's been compromised, print out a list of the most recent transactions, and highlight or circle ALL fraudulent charges. Have this paper handy so when you call the credit card company, you don't have to search for the information when they ask. You want to get everything taken care of as quickly as possible.
 
2. CALL YOUR CREDIT CARD COMPANY
Next, find the right number to call. You don't want to be on hold for hours or pressing an insane number of buttons to direct you to the right place. Remember to write down the exact time and date of your call, and who you talked to, just in case you need to reference it later.
 
3. CONTACT A CREDIT BUREAU
If your entire wallet was stolen, {and not just a credit card number}, it's a good idea to also add a 90-day fraud alert to your credit report. This prevents the thief from opening other financial accounts in your name, and notifies lenders to take extra precautions that the person requesting a new account is actually you. The nice thing is, you only have to do this once. The first credit agency you contact is required by law to alert the other two on your behalf.
 
4. TAKE PREVENTATIVE MEASURES FROM NOW ON
Just because you've notified your credit card company and switched over all automatic withdrawals on your account, doesn't mean you can breathe a sigh of relief just yet. Now it's time to be even more diligent to make sure nothing like this happens ever again!
 
  • Check your statements regularly online, not just when you get them in your mail or email.
  • Stay on top of your credit by requesting a FREE report every few months. 
  • Use a chip-enabled credit card, which creates a unique ID for every transaction.
  • Create stronger passwords. 
  • Shred paperwork you no longer need.
  • Avoid shopping online with your smartphone, unless of course, you follow these safety tips first.

MILLIONS SET TO "SHAKEOUT" THIS THURSDAY

 
This Thursday, October 18, 2018 at 10:18AM, more than 2 million people across 14 states will take part in the Great Central US ShakeOut Earthquake Drill.  The regional ShakeOut drill is part of an international effort in which participants simultaneously practice how to stay safe during an earthquake — “Drop, Cover, and Hold On”. For most people, in most situations, this means to:
 
  • DROP where you are, onto your hands and knees; 
  • COVER your head and neck with one arm and hand, as you crawl for shelter under a nearby table or desk;
  • HOLD ON to your shelter with one hand until shaking stops (remain on your knees and covering your head and neck with your other arm and hand).
     
Schools, businesses, organizations, government agencies, communities, and households are all encouraged to participate in the drill. Worldwide, 25 million people are currently expected to participate in Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills this Thursday. 
 
“The central and eastern U.S. is home to several active faults, including the New Madrid Seismic Zone, which has produced three of the largest earthquakes ever felt in the continental United States in 1811-12.” Stated Michael Dossett, director of Kentucky Emergency Management.  “As scientists estimate there is a 25-40% probability of a damaging earthquake occurring in the central U.S. within any 50 year window of time, it is imperative that we take necessary actions to prepare ourselves and our communities should one occur.”
 
Although the primary activity of the ShakeOut is based upon a drill procedure similar to a fire or tornado drill, participants are encouraged to take actions to become better prepared for all disasters.  This could include:
 
  • Securing heavy items to prevent them from causing injuries during an earthquake
  • Creating an emergency plan and/or updating emergency supply kits 
  • Talking with their families and neighbors about emergency preparedness
 
Interested citizens, schools, communities, businesses, etc. are invited to visit www.shakeout.org  to register to participate in the drill. On the website, many resources are available for participants to use during their drills including drill manuals, videos, audio drill broadcasts, earthquake scenarios, and more.
 
Great ShakeOut activities are being coordinated by Kentucky Emergency Management, Central U.S. Earthquake Consortium, Federal Emergency Management Agency, U.S. Geological Survey and dozens of other partners.  ShakeOut is coordinated globally by the Southern California Earthquake Center in Los Angeles, California.
 
For additional preparedness information, visit KYEM at www.kyem.ky.gov. Follow @KentuckyEM on Twitter, like us on Facebook and sign up for text alerts.

CASEY COUNTY AWARDED $183,000 FOR CRITICAL PAVEMENT IMPROVEMENTS

 

As part of Governor Matt Bevin’s commitment to prioritize transportation infrastructure projects and increase economic opportunity across the Commonwealth, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is pleased to announce $183,000 in discretionary funds have been awarded to the Casey County Fiscal Court for vital resurfacing work on several county roads. The county will receive reimbursement for repairs to correct cracks, potholes, joint separation and base failures. 


“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 large impacts on communities.”


Casey County Judge-Executive Randy Dial identified these roads as being among the most critical in the county.

 

“I would like to thank Governor Bevin and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet for the approval of these resurfacing requests through the Governor’s Discretionary Fund,” said Judge-Executive Dial. “These funds will help tremendously in our efforts to make our county roads safer for the traveling public.” 


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.


“Providing the people of Casey County with adequate roadways is one of my top priorities, and I’m grateful for the support of the Governor in our efforts to improve the infrastructure of Casey County,” said Rep. Danny Elliot.

 

Sen. Jimmy Higdon also noted his appreciation of the resurfacing work.


“Thanks to the Governor and KYTC for approving our request for discretionary funding of resurfacing projects in Casey County,” said Sen. Higdon. “Maintaining and resurfacing county roads is vital to the residents of Casey County.”


The Casey County Fiscal Court is responsible for administering the work, and KYTC will reimburse the county for the projects.


Resurfacing work will address:

- South Fork Creek Road (County Road 1122) from milepoint 3.183 to milepoint 5.451

- Schoolhouse Road (County Road 1502) from milepoint 1.529 to milepoint 1.959

- Contown Road (County Road 1153) from milepoint 0 to milepoint 0.40

BESHEAR CALLS FOR TOUGHER RESTRICTIONS ON ILLEGAL ROBOCALLS

 
FRANKFORT, KY. (Oct. 12, 2018) – Attorney General Andy Beshear is calling on federal regulators to allow telephone service providers to block more illegal robocalls being made to Kentuckians. 
 
Beshear and more than 30 state attorneys general detail in their letter that scammers have devised methods to evade a call blocking order issued by the Federal Communications Commission last year. 
 
Beshear said at issue is “neighborhood spoofing,” a technique allowing scammers – no matter where they are located – to appear on Kentuckians’ caller ID as being from a phone number that has the same local area code – 270, 502, 606 or 859. 
 
“Protecting Kentuckians from the constant barrage of unwanted scams and robocalls is an ongoing priority of my office,” Beshear said. “We must strengthen the protections to our citizens when scammers strengthen their ploys to deceive them.” 
 
In 2017, the Federal Trade Commission received 4.5 million illegal robocall complaints – two and a half times more than in 2014. 
 
Beshear said his Office of Consumer Protection receives more than a thousand complaints each year with respect to illegal calls, including scam calls, telemarketing complaints and robocalls.  
 
Beshear encourages Kentuckians to use the National Do Not Call Registry provided by the FCC. 
 
Beshear and his office are fighting to stop con artists and are asking Kentuckians to report scams and identity theft via his office’s online form. 
 
Earlier this year, Beshear announced nearly 2,200 Kentucky small businesses would get money back from a Michigan-based company that allegedly sold scam services. 
 
Beshear recommends all Kentuckians stay ahead of scammers by signing up for his office’s Scam Alerts. To enroll text the words KYOAG Scam to GOV-311 (468-311) or online at ag.ky.gov/scams and select text message or email alert.
