6 STORES IN CASEY CO. LOSE RIGHT TO SELL KY LOTTERY TICKETS

 
In September, 2018 the Casey County Sheriff's Office executed a series of search warrants that led to the seizure of 22 illegal gambling machines at retailers. The machines were described in a state lottery news release as "video poker and other electronic gambling devices."
 
Subsequently, licensees affiliated with six Kentucky Lottery outlets have pled guilty to a Class A misdemeanor of possession of a gambling device, the news release said. State law mandates any retailer convicted of illegal gambling activities cannot sell state lottery tickets for 10 years. 
 
As a result, the following retailers have had their licenses terminated and will no longer sell Kentucky Lottery products:
 
  1. Mukeshabai Patel and Rameshkumar Patel, B&W Grocery, 7285 East Highway 70, Yosemite
  2. Jitendrakumar Patel, Crockett Trail General Store at 7625 West KY 70 in Liberty, Sallies Food Mart 2 at 6554 W Ky 70 in Liberty, OM Food Mart at 116 Bradsfordville Road in Mannsville, and Gia's Supermarket at 163 Hustonville St. in Liberty
  3. Mamta Patel, S&T Market, 5838 Hwy 49 in Liberty

"State law is very direct about what actions have to be taken when a retailer is convicted of illegal gambling activity," Kentucky Lottery President and CEO Tom Delacenserie said.
 
"We appreciate the efforts of the Casey County Sherriff's Office, and will continue to remain vigilant to watch for any other outcomes such as these. Maintaining the integrity of our legal games is paramount to our mission, and anything which violates this statute will be met with the same outcome."

KNIFLEY BARN FIRE SPOTTED ON RADAR TUES. BY NWS LOUISVILLE

 

On Tuesday evening, Dec. 18, 2018 the US National Weather Service in Louisville, KY notified the Adair County 911 Center of a hot spot showing on their satellite imagery. The Knifley Fire Department responded to investigate and found a barn fire on Mt Tussle Road.   

 

This new satellite has already proven itself "seeing" fires in Kentucky and could have saved Knifley from this isolated barn fire becoming a large wildland fire.

 

Thank You Ryan Sharp and the whole Louisville NWS for keeping eyes on Kentucky!

MAN SLITS THROAT OF 3-YEAR-OLD NIECE IN CLINTON CO.

 

CLINTON COUNTY - According to officials, a man is being held in the Clinton County Jail after being accused of attacking his three-year-old niece and slitting her throat.

 

The local sheriff told reporters in Lexington that the little girl is in critical condition at a hospital.

 

According to authorities, Emanuel Fluter slit his niece's throat on Saturday at a home on Beatty Creek Road in Albany.

 

According to Fluter’s arrest citation, the victim’s father heard the child screaming over a baby monitor.

 

Neighbors told reporters they were shocked.

 

"They're such a beautiful family the kids, mom, and the dad, they are very friendly the kids are out in the yard playing a lot. It was just extremely heartbreaking. I just can't imagine someone being able to do that."

 

Fluter was charged with first degree assault and first degree wanton endangerment. Officials say more charges are possible.

 

The jail told Lexington reporters that no mugshot is available because Fluter has been acting too violent to have his picture taken.

FORMER GREENSBURG ATTORNEY PLEADS GUILTY TO EMBEZZLING FROM CLIENTS TO PAY GAMBLING LOSSES

 
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – A Campbellsville, KY, man pleaded guilty before United States District Court Judge Greg N. Stivers today (Friday, Dec. 7, 2018) to five counts of wire fraud as part of a scheme to obtain money from clients of his legal practice, by means of misappropriating funds, in order to pay personal expenses including gambling losses, announced United States Attorney Russell M. Coleman.
 
Danny Butler, 72, was indicted on November 15, 2017. According to the indictment, Butler was an attorney licensed with the Kentucky Bar Association who was authorized to practice law in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. He operated a legal practice in Greensburg, located in Green County, Kentucky, and provided clients with a broad range of legal services including probate, general civil, and government benefits.
 
According to the plea agreement before the Court, from August 2009 through October 2016, Butler obtained money by false pretenses from the clients of his legal practice by not performing work for his clients and by stealing funds belonging to estates of his clients. 
 
Butler misappropriated funds from the following clients:
 
· Approximately $148,106 from the estate of L.A.;
· Approximately $29,987.07 from the estate of L.P.;
· Approximately $401,500 from the representation of B.M.;
· Approximately $50,000 from the representation of D.M.;
· Approximately $50,000 from the estate of D.B.;
· Approximately $90,000 from the representation of J.R.B.;
· Approximately $90,000 from the estate of E.U.;
· Approximately $25,000 from the estate of E.M.;
· Approximately $59,000 from the representation of J.W.S.;
· Approximately $25,000 for the representation of E.S.; and
· Approximately $125,000 from the estate of L.P.M.  
 
Butler could be sentenced to a maximum 100 years in prison, fined $1,250,000, and be required to serve a three year period of supervised release. Sentencing is scheduled for March 4, 2019. 
 
The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Bryan Calhoun, and was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Kentucky State Police.

CHRISTMAS SHOPPING SCAMMERS POSING AS RETAILERS; STEALING PERSONAL & FINANCIAL INFO. VIA FAKE EMAILS

 

Kentuckians shopping online this Christmas season should be on the lookout for scam emails, Attorney General Andy Beshear warned recently.
 
With Christmas shopping in full swing, and the National Retail Federation predicting spending to increase by more than 4 percent this season, Kentuckians say they are receiving what appear to be legitimate emails from popular retailers that are actually scams. The scam email is often personalized and includes a logo of a retailer such as PayPal, Apple or Amazon, and instructs the receiver to resolve an issue with their online account or order by reentering their bank, credit card or Social Security numbers.
 
Beshear said it is sad that con artists take advantage of the Christmas season to trick folks into handing over their personal and financial information. “I want Kentuckians to enjoy the Christmas season and not end up checking off a con artist’s Christmas wish list,” said Beshear. “Kentuckians should always take the time to scrutinize every email and financial transaction closely, especially throughout the Christmas shopping season.”
 
Beshear said Kentuckians should also be wary of emails, apps and social media posts that offer too good to be true deals, discounts and sales, as those offers could be a ploy to collect information. To spot a scam email, website or app Kentuckians should:
 
  • Watch for misspelled words. 
  • Avoid clicking on email hyperlinks. Always independently type in the actual retailer website and sign in.
  • Pay attention to the sender’s email address. Scam emails are often from an email address that looks very similar to an official company account, but may have a couple of letters or words that are different. 
 
Beshear asked Kentuckians to report these types of email scams to the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection hotline at 888-432-9257 and complete an online report. 
 
To receive text message alerts, text the words KYOAG Scam to GOV311 (468-311) or enroll online at ag.ky.gov/scams and select either text message or email alerts.

“Mr. Horton did real harm, placing both families and a major local employer at risk,” stated U.S. Attorney Russell M. Coleman, “And for that, federal prison time is just punishment.”
 
In 2016, Horton, now age 44, worked on printers on production lines for Styrofoam drinking cups at the container manufacturing plant in Horse Cave, KY. On two separate dates in July 2016 Horton, with reckless disregard for the risk of death or bodily injury it might cause, placed pieces of broken glass into Styrofoam drinking cups that were then shipped to fast food restaurants. Glass pieces were subsequently found in cups at three different restaurants in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. After receiving complaints, the container manufacturing plant put the distribution of Styrofoam cups that were produced in its facility on hold and seven additional boxes containing Styrofoam cups with broken glass were ultimately found. 
 
Horton pleaded guilty to tampering with consumer products on July 13, 2018. 
 
The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Amanda Gregory and Marisa Ford, and was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Hart County Sheriff’s Office.

CHILD DIES FROM INJURIES SUSTAINED IN T.C. ACCIDENT

 
Hunter Hedgespeth, the 3-year-old son of David & Sarah Hedgespeth of Columbia, KY passed away Wednesday, Dec. 5th at Norton Hospital in Louisville, KY from injuries sustained in an auto accident in Taylor Co. last Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2018. The accident was a chain reaction type accident that involved 4 vehicles and occurred on Hwy 55 (New Columbia Road) in Campbellsville, KY. The same accident claimed the life of 31-year-old Steven Kyle Taylor of Burkesville, KY, who was a passenger in a taxi at the time of the crash.
 
According to the Campbellsville Police Dept., the accident occurred at 3:27pmET when a 2017 GMC Yukon, operated by 50-year-old Kathy Begley of Campbellsville, KY was stopped on KY 55 waiting to make a left hand turn into Swan's Landing. A 2003 Dodge dually pickup, operated by 29-year-old John Yoder of Columbia, KY was pulling a gooseneck trailer loaded with logs and failed to see several vehicles stopped in front of him waiting for Begley to turn. Yoder struck a 2007 Chevrolet Impala in the rear operated by 48-year-old David Coop of Albany, KY which caused a chain reaction collision. The Coop vehicle (which was a taxi owned by Smith's Taxi LLC of Albany) then struck a 2003 Honda Element operated by 30-year-old Sarah Hedgespeth of Greensburg, causing the Hedgespeth vehicle to strike Begley's vehicle which was stopped waiting to turn. Coop's vehicle (a taxi) had several passengers, 55-year-old Rosa Muse, 61-year-old Earl Muse, and 31-year-old Steven Taylor all of Burkesville, KY.  
 
All parties involved in the collision (except Yoder) were transported to Taylor Regional Hospital. Steven Taylor of Burkesville was pronounced dead at Taylor Regional Hospital.
 
Funeral arrangements for 3-year-old Hunter Hedgespeth are incomplete and will be announced later by Foster Toler Curry Funeral Home in Greensburg.

WASHINGTON CO. MAN CITED FOR PASSING A STOPPED SCHOOL BUS

 

A Springfield, KY man was cited Monday, Dec. 3, 2018 for allegedly passing a stopped school bus in Nelson County.


51-year-old Kevin Newsome is accused of passing the bus as it stopped on Lawrenceburg Road to unload children. The bus driver told sheriff’s deputies the signal lights were activated; the stop sign was out and a child was standing on the steps to exit when Newsome's vehicle came around the right side of the bus by the doors. Newsome claims he swerved to avoid striking the bus, going around the right side and hitting a mailbox and a ditch. Newsome told deputies he had taken a prescription pain pill early that morning, but nothing else. Tests conducted at the scene did not show any signs of Newsome being impaired.


Newsome is charged with passing a bus in the process of loading or unloading, reckless driving, and failure to produce an insurance card. He has an arraignment scheduled for Dec. 26.

C-VILLE STUDENT WINS CONGRESSIONAL APP CHALLENGE

 
WASHINGTON – On Tuesday, Congressman James Comer (KY-01) recognized Jay Tucker for winning the 1st District 2018 Congressional App Challenge.
 
Tucker is a Senior at Campbellsville High School. Her winning app is called “Learn Your Sounds!” It is intended to be an educational tool to help early learners or students with disabilities learn sounds and words.
 
“I want to congratulate Jay on winning the 1st District 2018 App Challenge. Her app is not only an impressive technological creation, but a tool to help future generations achieve educational success. Jay’s coding and precision are great examples of the inventiveness and intelligence of students throughout the 1st District. Technology is vital to this district, state and country, and competitions like these are important for our country and the future,” said Congressman Comer.
 
“Two years ago, our school district was one of the first in the nation to offer the new AP Computer Science Principles course. We use MIT’s App Inventor as part of our class and the Congressional App Challenge fits in well as a class project. Jay Tucker has shown substantial growth in not just coding skills, but also in problem solving and critical thinking and learning how to work collaboratively with her peers. These real-life skills will ensure her success in the future and possibly a career in Computer Science where many jobs are currently going unfilled. Thanks to Congressman Comer and the organizers of the Congressional App Challenge for recognizing and encouraging our students,” said Sonya Kessler, teacher at Campbellsville Independent Schools. 
 
The Congressional App Challenge was created to help promote interest in STEM skills, abilities that are imminently important to the future of the United States.

FDA ALERTS PET OWNERS ABOUT POTENTIALLY TOXIC LEVELS OF VITAMIN D IN DRY PET FOODS

 
The FDA is alerting pet owners and veterinary professionals about recalls of several dry dog foods after receiving complaints that dogs eating the food experienced vitamin D toxicity.
 
Testing found that samples of the dog food contained excessive, potentially toxic amounts of vitamin D. Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, but very high amounts can cause serious health problems like kidney failure or death.
At this time, the only pet products that have been impacted are food made for dogs. Pet owners should discontinue feeding these recalled products.
 
The FDA is asking veterinarians who suspect vitamin D toxicity in their patients to report them through the Safety Reporting Portal or by calling their local FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinators. Pet owners can also report suspect cases to the FDA.
 
What is the Problem?
The FDA has become aware of reports of vitamin D toxicity in dogs that ate dry dog food common contract manufacturer and marketed under several different brand names. This is a developing situation, and the FDA will update this page with additional information as it becomes available.
 
What are the Symptoms of Vitamin D Toxicity?
Excess vitamin D in the diet can cause vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling and weight loss. Vitamin D at toxic levels can cause kidney failure and death. Pet owners whose dogs have been eating the recalled brands and are showing these symptoms should contact their veterinarians.
 
What Brands Have Been Recalled?

  72. All lot codes

 

The recalled products were sold nationwide.

 
What is FDA doing to address the situation?
After receiving complaints from pet owners about dogs with vitamin D toxicity, one of the firms reported to the FDA that it was recalling dry pet food due to potentially toxic levels of vitamin D. Many other brands with a common contract manufacturer have also been recalled. The FDA is working with the contract manufacturer to provide a comprehensive list of affected brands.
 
FDA scientists are still analyzing reports and the information currently available to determine whether the illnesses are definitively connected to diet.
 
FDA scientists have evaluated samples of some of these products, and State and private lab test results indicate that the food contained as much as approximately 70 times the intended amount of vitamin D. Consuming food with such high levels of vitamin D is potentially toxic to dogs and in severe cases may lead to kidney failure and/or death.
 
What Do Retailers Need To Do?
Don’t sell the recalled foods. Contact the manufacturer for further instructions. The FDA also encourages retailers to contact consumers who have purchased recalled products, if they have the means to do so (such as through shopper’s card records or point-of-sale signs).
 
What Do Pet Owners Need To Do?
If your pet is having symptoms of vitamin D toxicity, contact a veterinarian immediately. Provide a full diet history to your veterinarian. You may find it helpful to take a picture of the pet food label, including the lot number.
 
Don’t feed the recalled products to your pets or any other animal. Contact the company listed on the package for further instructions or throw the products away in a way that children, pets and wildlife cannot access them.
 
You can report suspected illness to the FDA electronically through the Safety Reporting Portal or by calling your state’s FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinators. It’s most helpful if you can work with your veterinarian to submit your pet’s medical records as part of your report. For an explanation of the information and level of detail that would be helpful to include in a complaint to the FDA, please see How to Report a Pet Food Complaint.
 
 
What Do Veterinarians Need To Do?
The FDA encourages veterinarians treating vitamin D toxicity to ask their clients for a diet history. We also welcome case reports, especially those confirmed through diagnostics. You can submit these reports electronically through the Safety Reporting Portal or by calling your state’s FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinators. For an explanation of the information and level of detail that would be helpful to include in a complaint to the FDA, please see How to Report a Pet Food Complaint.
 
Veterinarians should also be aware that vitamin D toxicity may present as hypercalcemia, similar to dogs that have consumed rodenticide. In these cases, we suggest that you confirm diet history to verify whether the dog has been eating any of the recalled products.

NATIONAL INFLUENZA VACCINATION WEEK DEC. 2-8, 2018

 
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Dec. 3, 2018) – The Kentucky Department for Public Health (DPH), within the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, encourages Kentuckians to get a flu shot during National Influenza Vaccination Week, Dec. 2-8, to help prevent the spread of flu this holiday season.
 
"The flu vaccine is the single best way to protect you and your loved ones against the flu,” said Jeff Howard, M.D., commissioner of DPH. “If you are vaccinated, you are less likely to get the flu and spread the flu to those at greatest risk for becoming dangerously ill, including young children, pregnant women, people 65 and older and those with certain medical conditions. By getting vaccinated you are protecting your family and those people you cross paths with every day.”
 
DPH officials report weekly to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as part of statewide flu surveillance efforts. Kentucky currently is reporting 118 laboratory-confirmed cases of flu with the state flu activity level currently classified as “regional”. The weekly report is now available online at https://chfs.ky.gov/agencies/dph/dehp/idb/Pages/influenza.aspx and will be updated each Friday before noon.
 
Flu is a serious upper respiratory illness that can lead to prolonged illness and absenteeism from school or work; inpatient and outpatient medical care including visits to the emergency room or hospitalizations; and, in severe cases, death.
 
Christa Mitchell, who lives in central Kentucky, got the flu the day after Christmas last year. “I almost died and it all started with the flu,” said Christa. “I developed complications and was told that I was probably going to lose all of my toes, if not more, and at least all the fingers on my left hand.”
 
Christa spent 49 days in the hospital. Her road to recovery has included surgeries to remove and repair parts of her hands and feet. She continues an aggressive re-hab and wound care regiment today, along with multiple doctors’ appointments. 
 
“I’ve always been healthy and have never been prone to being sick. I didn’t get my flu shot,” continued Christa. “My advice is simple: get your flu shot. Had I gotten a flu shot and then came down with the flu it would not have been as serious. As it turns out I have to deal with the impact of the flu for the rest of my life.”  
 
CHFS produced a video story about Christa. It’s available on the Cabinet’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/kychfs/. Additionally, unedited video of an interview with Christa and several family members, along with b-roll elements of Christa at home and photos of the family before and after the flu is now available for unrestricted media use at the CHFS MediaLink channel on YouTube:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC99OwJNHHYu9ve13279wlIg. Media members can freely use any of the material on our Medialink site for use in their own stories. 
 
According to information provided by the CHFS Office of Health Data and Analytics, expenditures for Medicaid beneficiaries for flu-related healthcare services totaled $4.4 million during a three-month timespan from October to December of 2017. This includes hospitalizations related to flu as well as associated emergency room visits and inpatient services associated with each case.
 
National Influenza Vaccination Week is a weeklong observance that serves as a reminder to those people who have not yet received a flu vaccine that the time to get vaccinated continues into winter – through February or later, when flu season typically peaks. Because it takes about two weeks for the body to develop protective antibodies against the flu following vaccination, Kentuckians who have not had a chance to be vaccinated should seek out the opportunity now. Vaccine supplies are considered plentiful at this time, but people are urged to call their providers or pharmacies to check on availability.
 
Throughout the week, the CDC and DPH will highlight the importance of vaccinations for those people at high risk, their close contacts and all those who want to be protected against the flu. In addition, good health habits such as washing hands often with soap and warm water, avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth, and staying at home from work or school when sick will also be emphasized.
 
The CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends flu vaccine for all individuals six months of age and older. People who are strongly encouraged to receive the flu vaccine because they may be at higher risk for complications or negative consequences include:
? Children age six months through 59 months; 
? Women who are or will be pregnant during the influenza season; 
? Persons 50 years of age or older;
? Persons with extreme obesity (Body Mass Index of 40 or greater); 
? Persons aged six months and older with chronic health problems; 
? Residents of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities; 
? Household contacts (including children) and caregivers of children aged ≤59 months 
  (i.e., aged
  contacts of children aged
? Household contacts and caregivers or people who live with a person at high-risk for 
  complications from the flu; and 
? Health care workers, including physicians, nurses, and other workers in inpatient and
  outpatient-care settings, medical emergency-response workers (e.g., paramedics and
  emergency medical technicians), employees of nursing home and long-term care 
  facilities who have contact with patients or residents, and students in these professions
  who will have contact with patients.
 
Dr. Howard added, “You should also follow the advice your parents gave you to prevent flu and other illnesses that tend to circulate at this time of year – wash your hands frequently, cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze and stay home when you’re sick.”
 
Adequate supplies of flu vaccine are expected to be available for this year’s season. Vaccination can be given any time during the flu season.
 
Infection with the flu virus can cause fever, headache, cough, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing and body aches. Flu can be very contagious. For more information on influenza or the availability of flu vaccine, Kentuckians should contact their primary care medical professional, local health department or local pharmacy. Influenza information is also available online at https://www.cdc.gov/flu/index.htm.
