Scenic Cumberland Co., KY: Still some Best Kept Secrets

2015-07-07 - Scotts Landing Road, Cumberland Co., KY - Photo by Linda Waggener, CM. The signs into Burkesville no longer herald "Kentucky's Best Kept Secret," but there are still hidden, almost secret places on every road. Surprisingly, not every resident of the county seat is aware of the treasures almost within hollering distance. This picturesque farm is on Scotts Bottom Road. To put the location in perspective, as best as we learned from a Burkesvillian who has been all over the county, "If you went over that bluff, in the background; you would be over on KY 61 on the new stretch of road past the Salem Park Bridge as you were coming toward Burkesville, from Breeding, KY." - CM

From U.S. Attorney's Office
Department of Justice, Eastern District of Kentucky

LONDON, KY (Tue 7 Jul 2015) - The final member of a scheme, in which the defendants used other people's identities to defraud a Leslie County bank out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, has been sentenced today to prison.

On Thursday, July 2, Nicole Lewis, 34, of Leslie County received two years in prison for aggravated identity theft. U.S. District Judge Gregory F. Van Tatenhove had previously sentenced her co-defendants, Deborah Wilson, 53, and Theresa Bowling, 46, to 18 months and 42 months respectively, for their roles in the scheme. Judge Van Tatenhove ordered that all three defendants, together, pay $420,806.60 in restitution to Hyden Citizens Bank in Leslie County. Under federal law, all of them must serve at least 85 percent of their prison sentences.

Gov. Beshear: No special session needed


FRANKFORT, KY (July 7, 2015) - "There are obviously strong feelings on both sides of this issue, but the United States Supreme Court has spoken and same-sex marriage is now legal in Kentucky and the rest of the United States. Regardless of whatever their personal feelings might be, the overwhelming majority of county clerks are following the law and carrying out their duty to issue marriage licenses regardless of gender, and the courts will deal appropriately with the two or three clerks who are acting otherwise.

"Same-sex couples are now being married in Kentucky and such marriages from other states are now being recognized under Kentucky law. This Administration continues to identify statutes which must now be interpreted in a different way and is making the appropriate changes. For example, the Department of Revenue has put out new guidance in the area of taxation and the Administrative Office of the Courts has issued new guidance on changing names on driver's licenses.

"It's time for everyone to take a deep breath. There is no need to spend $60,000 a day of taxpayers' dollars calling a special session of the General Assembly, and therefore I will not be calling a special session on this topic. If there are any minor changes needed to clarify the language of statutes, any such changes can be made in the 2016 legislative session in January." - - Gov. Steve Beshear

Memento of the 1909 Adair County Fair

2015-07-07 - Adair County, KY - Photo a local anonymous collector.
I thought it might be interesting for folks to see what it cost for a season ticket to the Adair County Fair 106 years ago: $1.30. Inside this cover there was a ticket stub, which read, "Not transferable. Admit" and then a blank for the name of the ticket holder. This one belonged to Luther Grider. On the back of the folder there, apparently used for a notepad, was this penciled inscription: "19 Broadway 1225 B. Moellers Rest. Second Street." Maybe a reminder of two addresses while whoever owned the ticket at the time was visiting Louisville, KY (?). Any comments are welcome. - Anonymous owner for the not-for-sale keepsake
