SCAM ALERT: fraudulent medical billing claims being made

Remember, stop and verify before giving any information at any time! These scammers try to steal the victim's insurance and personal information in order to receive reimbursement for services or medical devices that were not provided or medically necessary.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (April 9, 2019) - Following reports from Kentuckians, Attorney General Andy Beshear has issued a scam alert to warn of medical billing scams targeting families.

Louisville residents have reported a suspicious van driving around paying Medicaid participants $20 for a DNA sample and health insurance information, while other senior Kentuckians are receiving calls offering medical devices through Medicare. One Warren County senior reported $1,300 in medical bills for back braces that were not medically necessary.

CU Brunch raises money for Emergency Student Fund

By Ariel C. Emberton

Campbellsville, KY - "People here want me to succeed. They want me to grow as a student, musician and educator," Cassidy Allgood, a senior of Louisville, Ky., said to attendees of Campbellsville University Women's Alliance Brunch on Friday, April 5, 2019 in Winters Dining Hall. Allgood was one of two students from the School of Music who spoke at the event. The Women's Alliance was started to build a bridge between campus and the community, and one of the biggest items the alliance focuses on is the student emergency fund.

Debbie Carter, an Assistant Professor of Social Work, said the "emergency fund is to help students who have a crisis." The money can be used for a range of reasons including travel expenses for a student to get home for an emergency or for parents to come to Campbellsville.

ACSO: Adair man arrested on multiple charges

By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office


On Friday, April 5, 2019, The Adair County Sheriff's Office responded to a residence off Hutchison Loy Road to investigate a complaint they had received about activities taking place at the residence.

Upon deputy's arrival, methamphetamine was located at residence as well as an indoor marijuana growing operation. One of the owners of the property, David Scotty Corbin, 39, was not present, but deputies were able to locate him a short time later in the limits of Columbia.

A traffic stop was attempted to take him into custody. Corbin fled, leading the Sheriff's Office, Columbia City Police and Kentucky State Police into a pursuit that ended in the south end of the county around the Chance community. Corbin went off road onto old ATV trails in his 4x4, forcing officers to discontinue pursuit.

Around midnight on Friday, information was received that Corbin was setting on an old trail off of an area known as Tater Cave. Sheriff Brockman and several deputies, multiple troopers, and Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Officers hiked into the area on foot, making contact with Corbin about a mile into the trail. Corbin was able to get to his vehicle and elude officers once again, heading out the other end of the trail.

Warrants of arrest were obtained by the Sheriff's Office, and on Tuesday, April 9, 2019, at around NoonCT, deputy Josh Durbin was able to get a location on Corbin and a vehicle description. His location was broadcast, and CPD Officer Adam Cravens and Sgt. Murphy were able to stop Corbin on the Veterans Memorial Bypass and place him in custody.

Corbin was charged by the Adair County Sheriff's Office with:

Adair family needs help in battle to save toddler Bella

Toddler Bella Streeval and family continue to battle her severe seizures, and battle for her life. A fundraiser is being started by friends and neighbors in hopes of gathering support to help them with expenses. Her story is below and ways to contribute are suggested for any who feel called to help.

Two-year-old Bella has the most beautiful, long, brown hair. When down and sweetly flowing it is a mix of little girl curls and ringlets. So thick and full in fact, one would never see the cochlear implant on each ear unless already aware of them.

But the implants for this child are only a small piece to a much bigger story.
