Sheriff Shane Doyle has helped with some local safety meetings. "While our agency has nothing to do with this Bowling Green case, it's no surprise that something like this has happened. According to the reports, this was an act directed at one person only, a church can be an easy target to harm many people at once. Even churches aren't a guaranteed place of safety anymore. We advise everyone to have a safety plan in place and to be aware of what's going on around you."

When Edmonson County Animal Control Officer Eric Roscoe was hired by the EC Sheriff's Office, he said he was excited and ready to begin his duties immediately. According to his actions, he meant exactly what he said.
Over the past couple weeks, Officer Roscoe has been taking volunteer training in order to better understand the new position and to do a job that not just picks up animals, but helps them, while helping and educating animal owners.
His first call came this week on what appeared to be a lost or abandoned beagle mix. The dog was safely taken to the Bowling Green/Warren County Animal Shelter where he is doing just fine. The dog was collared and micro-chipped, and the shelter is working to locate the owner.
The second call came yesterday and was much more serious. Officer Roscoe said some kids found a lab/collie mix that someone had tied to a tree in the woods then abandoned it. He was able to respond almost immediately to ensure proper care for the dog.
"His lips were blue where he'd pulled on the tether to get loose," he said. "Luckily, after some water and giving him some treats, he calmed down. He was ready to go home with me."
The dog is also currently in the care of the BG/WC Animal Shelter where he is reportedly doing well.
Roscoe said he wants to concentrate on educating animal owners in Edmonson County on the current laws and ordinances already on the books. "What we're seeing is that it's far more of an education issue than an animal issue here," he said. "Animal owners have responsibilities. They have rules and regulations to follow if they're going to keep a pet. We just want to help people understand those things and see that animals are properly taken care of."
He said that he and the Sheriff's Office are working hard to utilize the available resources so that people follow the law and that animals are properly cared for, maintained, and placed in good homes.
"The Bowling Green/Warren County Animal Shelter has been absolutely great. There are some good folks in Leitchfield, too. We all want to work together."
He said working with the Sheriff's Office has been a very positive experience so far.
"These guys are always looking to help me and to help each other," he said, smiling. "We're all working hard to see that this works, and these guys are on it."

State Auditor Says Former County Clerk Butch Carroll Owes County Over $6,000, Other Questions Remain
Edmonson Voice Staff Report
Earlier this week, State Auditor Mike Harmon released the audit of the 2014 financial statement of former Edmonson County Clerk Larry "Butch" Carroll. State law requires the auditor to conduct annual audits of county clerks and sheriffs.
As part of the audit process, the auditor must comment on non-compliance with laws, regulations, contracts and grants. The auditor must also comment on material weaknesses involving the internal control over financial operations and reporting. The audit contained the following exceptions:
The audit said $915 of disallowed disbursements was for coffee.
Judge Executive Wil Cannon said that because of a pending case in circuit court, he could not comment on specific items listed in the audit, however, said his wish would be to either try to work something out of forget it.
"Ok, let's say Mr. Carroll spent more money than he should have. or spent some improperly. If the money was spent for the benefit of the county, then let's figure out a way to work it out. If he spent it on coffee and other things that didn't benefit taxpayers, then he should pay that back."
The audit also states that Carroll had no response to any of the exceptions listed in the report.

Semi-Trailer Full Of Round Hay Bales Catches Fire, Shuts Down Wingfield Church Road, One Firefighter Hospitalized
Edmonson Voice Staff Report
Firefighters responded to a call of a semi trailer full of round hay bales on fire on Wingfield Church Road today around 2:30pm.
Officials reported that apparently the truck's trailer suffered a blow out, but the driver did not stop, and the tire caught fire. This apparently ignited the hay bales and the burning tire caused the axle to come loose from the trailer, which ended in a field, catching a fence post and the field on fire.
Officials also reported that the apparent shift in the trailer caused the burning hay bales to fall off the trailer, landing in the roadway, the ditch, and in the yard of Linda Lillard.
Firefighters worked to contain the blaze in other people's property, but burning hay bales just have to burn out once they reach a certain point.
Donald Sullivan, owner of the truck and hay bales, and an employee were breaking up the bales with a tractor and hay fork to let them burn out.
The heat and heavy smoke made for very difficult conditions for firefighters on scene.
Stan Tillman, a firefighter for multiple county fire departments was hospitalized for heat exhaustion. No word on his condition at press time.
Wingfield Church Road remained closed for hours and traffic was detoured on Ellis Cole Road and Henry Meredith Road.
Responding to the scene were the Wingfield, Chalybeate, and Brownsville Fire Departments, Ky State Highway Department, Edmonson EMS, and the EC Sheriff's Office.
Leitchfield Teen Charged With Animal Cruelty For Dragging Dog To Death Behind Truck, Also Faces Meth Charges
Edmonson Voice Staff Report
Edmonson County Sheriff's Deputy Jordan Jones was unsure of what he might find when he received a call of a 1999 Ford F250 pickup truck traveling on the highway that was dragging a dog with a rope. He said what he found was "sickening."
Jones said the call came in from an off-duty Bowling Green Police officer that got behind the Ford truck in Oakland who attempted to stop it. The off-duty officer said that because he was not in a police vehicle, he couldn't get the driver to pull over, the truck sped away and the officer lost sight.
The officer was able to contact a Smiths Grove Police officer who then joined the search for the vehicle and the officers said they were able to locate the pickup truck by following the trail of blood coming from the dragged dog.
The officers were able to stop the man, Calvin Dennis (19) of Leitchfield, at the Chalybeate Fire Department where Deputy Jones met them.
Deputy Jones reported the man first said that the dog was in the bed of the truck and must have fallen out, with the leash getting wrapped around the axle without the man knowing, but Jones said the dog's rope was tied to the hitch of the truck and soon Dennis changed his story.
According to the deputy, Dennis said he had gotten into an altercation with another male and admitted to taking a pain pill. Dennis said he was angry and took off in the truck, apparently forgetting he had tied his dog to the hitch earlier in the day.
Photos of the deceased German Shepherd/Boxer mix were far too graphic to publish.
Jones said after administering field sobriety tests, it was determined that Dennis was under the influence of more than just a pain pill. Suspected meth was found in the driver's side door of the truck along with what appeared to be a piece of a glass pipe used to snort the drug.
Jones said Dennis then admitted to snorting meth earlier.
Calvin Dennis was charged with:
Deputy Jones has led the effort to add a K9 unit to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office and will be the handler of the K9 when the purchase is made. Various community campaigns are currently in the works to add "Tango," a 15 month-old German Shepherd to the office.
"This was a sickening case to work," Deputy Jones said. "It was simply a horrible thing to see. This is just one awful thing that can happen when someone decides to drive under the influence. This defenseless animal had to suffer a great deal for absolutely no reason."
Dennis was transported to the Hart County Jail.

Edmonson County's first organized humane society, Edmonson County PAWS, held a benefit bake sale and fundraiser Saturday at the Bank of Edmonson County. Members sold cupcakes, cookies, and other goodies along with customized key chains to help the new organization as they begin the quest to bring a new animal shelter to the county.
Vice President Scott Lindsey said the group is currently working on completing the documentation for their non-profit status. He said an out-of-town attorney has volunteered services to aid in the legal organization for the group.
"There's quite a bit of red tape and paperwork, but we said from the start that we want to do everything right," Lindsey said. "The ultimate goal is to be able to build and operate our very own county-run animal shelter and we feel that a local humane society would be best fit to see that."
Eric Roscoe, the county's new Animal Control Officer, was also on hand to help out. The Edmonson County Sheriff's Office has been busy laying the groundwork for the new position, getting a vehicle and equipment prepared. Sheriff Shane Doyle said the feedback from the hiring of Officer Roscoe has been very positive.
"The reaction from the public (on the hire) has been outstanding so far," Doyle said. "We said it before and we'll say it again, we feel great about Officer Roscoe and what he'll bring to our county. He's taking some volunteer training right now and we hope to have him begin his duties within a couple weeks."
PAWS VP Lindsey said the group is taking things one step at a time and hope to have their non-profit documents completed within the next 60 days, which will allow people to contribute in easier ways.
"We're all dog lovers and animal lovers trying to do the right thing," he said.
Over $900 was raised at Saturday's event.

Firefighters were called out to 4003 HWY 259N around 4am this morning to an abandoned house across from the intersection at Willie Hogan Road.
Emergency personnel said that the house was fully engulfed when they arrived and it quickly became a matter of controlling the blaze instead of saving the house.
According to county records, the last known owner of the property was Jay Freeman, but it was reported that no one had lived in the home for over a year. No contact information was available for Mr. Freeman.
The Edmonson County Sheriff's Office shut down a portion of HWY 259 for over an hour while the fire was contained. Both Kyrock and Brownsville Fire Departments were on scene.
The cause of the blaze was unknown and there were no reported injuries.

An upgrade to the oldest water line in Brownsville will cause a detour in school traffic for the Edmonson County 5/6 Center starting Monday. West Center Street, which is between the 5/6 Center and Stevenson's Auto Sales, could be closed as early as Monday as crews replace the old line that Mayor Jerry Meredith says is long overdue for repair.
"The line is constantly breaking or always in need of repair," Mayor Meredith said. "We realize school is starting back and there might be some issues, but this is something that we've needed to do for a while, it just turns out now is when it can be done."
Principal Alan Talley sent a letter home to students, along with a diagram outlining the changes to the school's drop off and pick up policy that will be in effect as soon as W. Center Street closes.
The letter stated:
Due to construction currently taking place on West Center Street (in front of our main office), we need to have an alternate plan for morning and afternoon car riders in case the street is closed.
Mayor Meredith said the project will extend past the 5/6 Center area. The plan is to begin the project on Mohawk St near Lifeskills, go up W. Center St to the 5/6 Center gym, turn right towards Stevenson's Auto Sales, go under Main Street, past Bertie's Ice Cream, down by the Main Street Center (old Brownsville Elementary) and tie into the main line on Washington Street.
"We'll do everything to keep traffic moving and the project going as best we can," Meredith said.
The project is expected to take 2-3 weeks according to the Mayor. Principal Talley said if everyone pays attention and follows the new outline for traffic, problems and delays should be at a minimum.
Local Emergency Dispatch Says Windstream Phone/Internet Service Keeps Interrupting, Causing Problems
Darren Doyle, story
Edmonson County Dispatch says their phone and internet lines have been coming and going for the past couple weeks which could cause some severe problems with emergency services.
Pat Prunty, Director of Edmonson County Emergency Mangagement said that their systems are very sensitive and the least amount of disruption can wreak havoc on their services.
"It's now affecting our 9-1-1 system, which is very serious," he said. "We've had the system just completely shut down with no notice."
Prunty said Windstream claims they're doing everything they can to remedy the problem, but Prunty says this is an ongoing issue.
"From what we understand, this could actually be happening county wide, or at least within the entire 597 prefix," Prunty said. "Unless you're on the phone or using Windstream internet right at that second, you don't even know it. Our systems sound an alarm with a disruption in service and that's what we've been experiencing on and off for the last couple weeks."
Prunty also said that the system only goes down for a couple of seconds and then it's back up, with the maximum down time being around one minute, but he also said that those are precious seconds in an emergency situation.
"We dropped a 9-1-1 call earlier, but luckily, it was toward the end of the call and we were able to reconnect with the caller. But what happens in another emergency?"
Prunty is advising that if you dial 9-1-1 and it continually rings or gets a rapid busy signal, it means the lines are down and because Edmonson County doesn't have a back up phone service, you should contact the Kentucky State Police at 270-782-2010.
"There's nothing we can do about it," he said, clearly frustrated. "Windstream says they're working on it, so you guys know as much about it as we do."
If you are experiencing problems with your Windstream phone line or internet signal or speed, call their customer service line at 1-866-445-5880.

Many kids will no doubt rub their eyes in disbelief bright and early in the morning as school will back in session in Edmonson County Wednesday, August 3rd, 2016. While some might be wondering what happened to summer break, it will be a thing of the past as the 2016-17 school year gets started tomorrow.
Although it's the first day back for students, administration, faculty, and staff have been busy for the last few weeks, preparing for Wednesday and getting everything ready for another year.
Superintendent of EC Schools Patrick Waddell says the district is excited to start the new school year and the summer staff has been busy preparing schools for the past couple of months. He also is encouraging parents and guardians to get involved with your child's activities now, and stay connected throughout the year.
"I encourage all parents and community members to get involved and stay involved throughout the school year," he said. "This can be accomplished by asking open-ended questions about what your child learned in school that day, reading their homework and attending school events to learn about what their teachers expect."
Staying involved is a common theme with all schools and administrators for the upcoming year. Family Resource and Youth Service Centers have been busy gathering school supplies to accommodate all schools. Other entities, like booster clubs and PTO's have been busy as well.
Kyrock Principal Jimmy White said Blackhawk students will see some new mulch on the preschool and main playgrounds, thanks to the Kyrock PTO, as well as a new coat of paint on the school's sign, playground equipment, and some trim around the building.
"Our PTO has also ordered some new banners for our school," White said. "And we would like to thank Lowe's for a $5,000 grant to resurface our school's walking track and the DART Corporation for a $5,000 STEM grant that will help to purchase some science materials, math program and iPads."
Principal Alan Talley said the EC 5/6 Center is excited to welcome new students for the upcoming year. "It's always fun to see a new group of (5th grade) 'Wildcats' come together for the first time and have a common goal of making our school the best it can be," he said. "We encourage all parents to stay in touch regularly with teachers throughout the year. More information will come home on Wednesday about some of the opportunities for our students during the 2016-2017 school year."
SEES Principal Jamie Woosley said everything is ready to go at South, and they're extremely proud to continue to be a "Leader In Me" school. All students will receive free lunch and breakfast again this year, and he also reminds everyone of their parking lot procedures.
"Safety is always a top priority at South Edmonson, as well as all our schools," he said. "Please remember that there are no vehicles allowed in the bus parking lot during drop off and dismissal. Also, the first couple of days we do expect a long vehicle line in the afternoon, so please be patient, don't pass, and your child will be delivered to you safely."
Edmonson County Middle School is also ready for Wednesday morning, according to principal Brandon Prunty. "We have new staff members who are eager to meet their students and our veteran teachers are equally excited about the start of the year," Prunty said. "I am looking forward to getting the year started and continuing the strong academic tradition at ECMS."
Edmonson County High School Principal Tommy Hodges, now entering his third year, gave credit to a great group of people at ECHS that have worked hard all summer long to prepare for the start of this school year. "We've got a great group of faculty, staff, and volunteers here," he said. "We're excited to kick things off tomorrow and we're confident this will be another great year here at the high school."
Sheriff Shane Doyle said that law enforcement will be out keeping an eye on traffic and reminds everyone that school zones will have speed limits of 25 MPH. "Our school zones are not active during summer months, so it's easy to forget about them," he said. "The safety of our kids is extremely important, so we will be enforcing school zone traffic."
Superintendent Waddell also reminds everyone to pay special attention to school buses during the morning and afternoon route times. "We also ask for everyone to watch out for students waiting to be picked up and dropped off throughout our county. Please plan a few extra minutes for your morning commutes starting Wednesday."
