East Kentucky Broadcasting Capsule News...West Virginia...1-29-'11

Alpha Natural Resources Incorporated says it's agreed to buy Massey Energy for $7.1 billion in cash and stock. Alpha is offering 1.025 share of Alpha Natural Resources Inc. for each share of Massey, plus $10 per share in cash, representing a bid of $69.33 per share, a 21 percent premium over Massey's closing share price Friday. Alpha will own 54 percent of the combined company and Massey will own 46 percent.

Congressman Nick Rahall wants a review of the U.S. Postal Service's decisions to suspend services at the Hacker Valley Post Office in Webster County and to consolidate operations at the Beckley and Huntington post offices into the Charleston processing and distributions center.

Under a bill reviewed by members of the West Virginia House of Delegates on Friday, police departments would have to report instances of officer wrongdoing to the state. The bill would give the state Law Enforcement Training Subcommittee subpoena powers to look into instances where an officer may need to be decertified.

Kanawha County school board President Pete Thaw says schools cannot reach the state's goal that students should receive 180 days of instruction each year. Superintendent Ron Duerring says the school system has no makeup days remaining after school was canceled Friday, making the 180-day mark.

Former state Lottery Director Butch Bryan was convicted on five counts of federal political corruption charges on September 24, 1993, and sentenced to more than four years in prison and required to pay $120,000 in restitution. Former Supreme Court Justice Richard Neely, a Charleston lawyer, is trying to get the conviction overturned and is asking that the $120,000 be returned to Bryan.

Senator Rand Paul Attends "March For Life" Rally

Abortion opponents rallied on the National Mall and marched to the Supreme Court Monday to mark the 38th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion. More than three dozen lawmakers addressed the crowd during the annual "March for Life." The lawmakers, buoyed by Republican gains in the November elections, called for the landmark ruling to be overturned. They said they would work to restrict tax dollars for abortions. The first "March for Life" rally was held in 1974, a year after the Supreme Court's decision that legalized abortion. U.S. Senator Rand Paul marked the landmark decision on abortion by calling it "one of the most horrific judicial travesties in the history of our nation." Paul  says more than 50 million abortions have been performed in the United States since abortion was legalized in 1973, and he will join other senators this week in sponsoring the Life at Conception Act that declares all unborn persons are entitled to equal protection from the moment of conception.

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama called abortion a constitutional right he's committed to protecting. He said the Roe v. Wade decision affirmed what he called a "fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters.


State Inspectors Find Letcher County Rest Home Out-Of-Compliance

State inspectors visited the Golden Years Rest Home in Jenkins in Letcher County on December 8, 2010, finding a number of issues ranging from improper medication storage to filthy bathrooms. The inspector noted medications were not stored properly, while cans of ant and roach spray were stored in the same cabinet with resident medications, other medications that require regulation were stored in a broken box that was corroded with rust, and  some medications found in a refrigerator were shown to be expired. One expired in 2008. In the bathroom, they found one commode soiled with feces and one urinal soiled with urine, both left unflushed and dirty. The shower and shower curtain were dirty and stained with a black and green substance. State Inspector General Mary Begley says officials at the home will have to come into compliance with their regulations.


State Highway Department Mechanic Dies In Magoffin County Crash

Police say 23 year old Bryan Shepherd of Campton was on his way to the Magoffin County Garage Monday morning to prepare equipment for the upcoming storm when he crashed his state highway department truck on Route 1888. KSP say Shepherd left the roadway, struck an embankment and died at the scene. Police say Shepherd lived in Campton but came from Beattyville to Salyersville where he was going to put snow scrapers on the Magoffin County equipment.


Breathitt County Murder Trial Underway

A Breathitt County murder trial got underway Monday. Prosecutors say Billy Caudill killed his neighbor, Randall Carpenter, on August 21, 2009 while the two were shooting at each other. Police also say Caudill was shot twice and severely injured in the fight. Attorneys for both sides agree that Caudill and Carpenter were not friendly to each other, but they disagree on how the shooting occurred and who fired the first shot. Michael Roper, Caudill's attorney, says Randall Carpenter reaches for his pistol, then shoots his weapon at Billy Caudill, hitting him twice. Roper says Caudill grabs his weapon, turns and fires. However, Commonwealth's Attorney Darrell Herald says two witnesses that were there and saw everything, both say Billy Caudill shot the first shot. When police arrived, they found Randall Carpenter dead in a ditch. Herald says the whole shooting was captured on a cassette tape recorder in Caudill's pocket, and that audio will be played at some point during the trial.


Arraignment Scheduled For Clay County Deputy Jailer

An arraignment is scheduled for January 31st for Clay County Deputy Jailer William Sizemore. Police arrested Sizemore on January 15th for harassing communications and fourth-degree assault after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriends 17 year old daughter five days earlier. Both charges are misdemeanors.


Judge Rules In Favor Of Harlan County Miners

Administrative Law Judge Janet Harner has ruled that a Harlan County coal mining company owned by D&C Mining Corp. of Fries, Virginia should pay nearly $40,000 for discriminating against two Kentucky men who were laid off. Harner says Chad Green and Donnie Smith were working at the mine in September 2009 when they noticed water leaking through an underground seal. State inspectors were called in, and the mine was temporarily shut down. The ruling says Smith and Green were laid off "for the mistaken belief that they called the inspectors to the mine." Harner ordered the company to pay $13,300 to Green and $5,600 to Smith in back pay, and another $20,000 for violations of the federal mining act.


Bonds Reduced In Wayne County Toddler's Death

Bonds have been reduced for four people charged in connection with the May 2009 death of 20-month-old Kayden Branham, a Wayne County toddler who died after drinking drain cleaner out of a sippee cup.
Larry Branham and Wesley Bell have been released, while bond was also lowered for Danny Ray Anderson and James Hunt. Two other people, Bryan Daniels and Alisha Dicken, are also charged in the case.


Former UK Quarterback Accepts Plea Deal

Former UK quarterback Mike Hartline, a senior who was suspended for UK's 27-10 BBVA Compass Bowl loss to Pitt on January 8th, has made a plea deal in a disorderly conduct and alcohol intoxication case against him. Hartline accepted an offer of diversion, meaning he will be required to complete community service along with alcohol counseling, and, if he completes the requirement and program, he will have the charges expunged from his record. Police arrested Hartline and his girlfriend Ashley Carnes in December. Police say Hartline was on his way back from the Tin Roof Bar when an argument broke out inside a cab. Officers responded to Crescent Avenue and found the former Wildcat arguing with a group of girls. He tried to walk away, but police stopped him. They say his speech was slurred and he smelled of alcohol.
Carnes, who was also in possession of false identification in the arrest, accepted a plea deal similar to Hartline's on Monday.


Homeless Population Count In Kentucky

Communities around Kentucky will be counting the numbers of homeless people this week.

The counts are conducted by the Kentucky Housing Corp., and the results are used to show the need for housing and services for homeless people in each community. The Housing Corp. says results also help determine how much the federal government will award for homeless programs.

This year's count will take place on Thursday, starting at midnight and continuing until 11:59 p.m. local time.

Last year, the total number of homeless people counted in Kentucky was 6,623.


Wolf Creek Dam Repair

Fixing Wolf Creek Dam will take more time and money than earlier thought.

One spot in the nearly- 4,000-foot-long earthen part of the dam is proving difficult to repair.

A contractor began work 18 months ago to seal off seepage at the dam, which impounds Lake Cumberland in southern Kentucky. Should the dam fail, it would cause the Cumberland River to flood downstream into Tennessee, threatening cities including Nashville.

Corps of Engineers project manager David Hendrix says that where the earth dam meets a concrete section, a concrete barrier wall must be poured within the dam.

Hendrix says the work will go slower and the price is expected to go up. The Corps doesn't have a new cost estimate or completion date.


Election Filing Deadline

The deadline is almost here for candidates who want to run for statewide office to get their names on the ballot.
Paperwork must be filed with the Kentucky secretary of state's office by 4 p.m. EST today (Tuesday). Secretary of State Trey Grayson says he expects people to keep filing until the deadline.

Offices that are up for election this year that must file with the secretary of state's office include governor and lieutenant governor, secretary of state, attorney general, auditor, treasurer and agriculture commissioner.


Energy Efficiency Grants

Kentucky school students who work to save energy or make schools more energy efficient could receive $800 grants to pay for the projects.

The Kentucky Green and Healthy Schools program funds may also be used to reduce school waste, conserve water or plant trees.

The program is administered by the Kentucky Environmental Education Council using stimulus funds.

The Education and Workforce Development Cabinet says that since the program began in the fall of 2009, 17 grants have been awarded.

Economic Impact Bill Introduced In Congress

U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis has introduced a bill that would require Congress to vote on federal regulations that would have an economic impact of at least $100 million.

The bill is called the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act, or REINS. Along with Davis, fellow Republican Congressmen Brett Guthrie of Bowling Green and Hal Rogers of Somerset are among the 86 co-sponsors.

The measure didn't move in the last session with a Democratic-majority House.

Critics say it is another way Republicans could try to derail health care and financial reforms, among other government regulations.


House Of Delegates Considers “10th Amendment” Laws

Three bills have been introduced in the West Virginia House of Delegates that would exempt guns and coal from federal regulation if both are produced and used in the state. Both bills are based on the premise that the federal government’s authority to regulate goods stems only from its constitutional power to regulate interstate commerce, so if the goods don’t leave West Virginia’s borders, the government has no jurisdiction. All three bills are what are sometimes referred to as “10th Amendment” laws. Eight states, including Tennessee, have passed “Firearms Freedom Acts” exempting state-made firearms from federal regulations, according to The 10th Amendment Center, which promotes the legislation. West Virginia would be the first to attempt the same thing with coal if the bill becomes law. Delegate Gary Howell, R-Mineral, is the lead sponsor of the coal and gun bills.


St. Albans Man Pleads Not Guilty To Sexual Assault

Thirty-six year old Michael Duane Lacy of St. Albans pleaded not guilty to sexual assault Monday in Kanawha County Circuit Court after being accused of impregnating an 11 year old girl. According to police, the victim was a friend of Lacy's daughter and frequently spent the night at Lacy's apartment. The incident allegedly occurred in mid-May. Lacy told police at the time that he did not intentionally have sex with the girl, but he woke up to someone kissing his neck and thought it was his wife. His bond is set at $50,000. His trial is scheduled for March 2nd.


Detroit Man Sentenced For Distributing Oxycodone

Justin Foster, 23, of Detroit, was sentenced Monday to 38 months in prison after he pleaded guilty in October 2010 to charges that he intended to help distribute Oxycodone through out-of-state drug deals. On July 21, 2010, West Virginia State Police executed a search warrant on a Knights Inn hotel room in Charleston and found 271 oxycodone 80-mg pills inside a pillowcase. Officers arrested the occupants in the room, including Foster, who had $170 in cash that had been used for a controlled purchase of Oxycodone earlier that day from another person who had been in the hotel room. Foster also admitted he was responsible for other Oxycodone distributions totaling at least 333 Oyxcodone 80-mg pills.


Charleston Man Charged With Sexual Assault

Scott Phalen, 51, of Charleston was arrested Sunday on charges of sexual abuse and sexual assault. The alleged victim, a 6 year old female family member, told Charleston Detective D.S. Paxton that Phalen would crush Adderal pills with a hammer then snort them, consume alcohol and watch pornographic movies while she was at his home. She says Phalen would come into the bedroom where she was sleeping and touch her inappropriately, and he sometimes would climb on top of her and smother her with a pillow while touching her.


Citizen Defense League Wants Gun Carry Laws Changed

The West Virginia Citizen Defense League, a pro-gun lobbying group, filed lawsuits Monday in federal court in Charleston and Martinsburg challenging a range of city ordinances in an effort to overturn city gun control laws in Charleston, South Charleston and Dunbar. WVCDL General Counsel Jim Mullins says carry restrictions forbid firearms in a number of city properties including courthouses, city hall, and the Charleston Civic Center, restricting the conduct of law abiding citizens, but at the same time not offering any protection from criminal activity. Mullins says, if somebody is intent on committing a crime those ordinances are zero deterrent, ut they are plenty deterrent to average, ordinary, law-abiding citizens. The lawsuit claims the plaintiffs fear they'll be arrested for violating the various city laws. They want a court order permanently barring the cities from enforcing their gun ordinances and legal fees, among other things. The complaint alleges 40 different counts on which each of those ordinances violates various provisions of the U.S. Constitution, the state Constitution, federal laws, and state law.


Capito Warns EPA Could Feel Budget Strain

Representative Shelley Moore Capito says, as lawmakers return to Capitol Hill this week, the federal Environmental Protection Agency will most likely be feeling some pressure from Congress. The EPA took an expected step and pulled the Clean Water Act permit that had already been issued for the Spruce No. 1 surface mine project in Logan County. Such retroactive actions from the EPA, Congresswoman Capito says, threaten states and industries across the United States. People are extremely upset in West Virginia, but this is not just a West Virginia issue. Both the U.S. House and U.S. Senate will soon have legislation to consider limiting the EPA's ability to force the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions without Congressional approval. U.S. Senator Joe Manchin says he'll soon introduce legislation that will prevent the EPA from retroactively vetoing projects that were initially approved. Capito says they keep changing the parameters and changing the rules, and maybe the EPA could be sent a message through its budget.


WV Opens Another Drug Court

West Virginia is opening its 14th drug court. The drug court will serve residents of Hampshire, Hardy and eventually Pendleton counties. Drug courts offer community-based treatment programs for nonviolent offenders who suffer from abuse or addiction problems. The program is an alternative to sentencing an offender to a state prison.


Kanawha County Deputies Arrest Charleston Man

Kanawha County sheriff's deputies recovered a stolen truck over the weekend, and charged a man they found sleeping inside it. Kanawha County Sheriff's Deputies say a man on Harmon Road near Charleston reported his 1995 Chevrolet Tahoe stolen on Saturday. The owner later called to say he had seen the stolen vehicle on the side of the road near the intersection of Connell Road and Johnson Road. Deputies drove up to the vehicle and found a man asleep inside. William Allen Means, 21, of Charleston was arrested and charged with possession of a stolen vehicle. He was placed on a $5,000 bond.


Florida Fugitive Turns Herself In To Kanawha County Deputies

A fugitive from Florida turned herself in to Kanawha County sheriff's deputies last  Friday. Deputy D.A. Cadle responded to a call at the Exxon gas station in Big Chimney and discovered Linda Haines, 63, upset and crying. Haines told the deputy she was wanted in the state of Florida. A check of computer records showed that Haines has been a fugitive since 2009 on a Florida fraud charge. Haines told Cadle she had been living in West Virginia for the past two years because she was wanted in Florida. She was taken to South Central Regional Jail, where she awaits extradition.


Huntington Man Arraigned

Huntington Officer Ronnie Lusk is on adminstrative leave following a shooting Saturday morning. Mitchell Dunn, 51, a man accused of firing at police in Huntington early Saturday morning has been arraigned on charges of attempt to commit murder and wanton endangerment. His bond was set $210,000 cash. His next court appearance is set for February 2nd. Dunn was shot on his porch by a Huntington police officer after he allegedly opened fire on police. Huntington Police Chief Skip Holbrook says officers were responding to a report of gunshots fired on Washington Avenue when Dunn came out onto his porch with a firearm and fired a round in their direction. Lusk returned fire and struck Dunn in the leg and shoulder. Officer Lusk was involved in another shooting in November 2009, in which he shot and killed Joe Porter in the Babylon nightclub in Huntington. After a lengthy investigation, Lusk was found to have followed protocol.


St. Albans Police Investigating Break-In

St. Albans Police are investigating a case where several men, carrying guns and pepper spray, allegedly broke into a home on Bard Avenue early Sunday morning. Dispatchers received a call at 3:21 A.M. that two or three men, wearing ski masks and pretending to be police officers knocked on the front door of the home and then pepper sprayed the man who answered. Once inside, they ordered everyone to lie on the floor and demanded money and Oxycontin pills. Several pills were taken from the home. At some point during the incident, one of the men fired a gun. Investigators later recovered a bullet at the scene, but no one was hit, and no one suffered any serious injuries.


West Virginia University Professor Found Dead

West Virginia University police are investigating the unattended death of 38-year-old Michael R. Morisette of Morgantown, a Health Sciences Center employee who was found dead in a lab office around 1:30 P.M.
on Saturday. Morisette, an Assistant Professor of Exercise Physiology in the School of Medicine, joined the staff in December 2008. WVU Police Chief Bob Roberts said they do not suspect foul play at this point of the investigation, but are waiting on details from the State Medical Examiner’s Office to make a final determination.

Williamsburg Police Arrest Four In Arby's Robbery

Acting on a tip, Williamsburg Police executed a search warrant at a residence behind the Williamsburg KFC Sunday, where they found evidence relating to the Friday night robbery of the Williamsburg Arby's along with an amount of marijuana consistent with personal use. Police arrested four people at the residence. Ted R. Shickell was charged with first-degree robbery. Joshua Hatfield, an Arby's employee, along with Michael L. Lebanion II and Kristina M. Sito were charged with facilitation to first-degree robbery.


Man Charged With Wife's Murder

Kentucky State Police charged 35 year old Jason Edward Singleton in the death of his wife, 25 year old Angela Frazer Singleton. Angela Singleton was reported missing on Monday. Her car was found burning on I-75 in Fayette County. On Wednesday, her body was found in a field off Tattlers Branch Road in Madison County. Singleton was arrested Thursday by Somerset police following a hostage situation in which Singleton held four people at gunpoint for about 15 minutes at a Pulaski County business. Friday, he was charged with her murder. Singleton faces charges in Pulaski County related to the hostage situation and murder charges in Madison County.


PRIDE Gearing Up For Spring Cleanup

Winter is still lingering, but one local PRIDE committee is already planning several events for the upcoming year. Pike County PRIDE (Personal Responsibility in a Desirable Environment) Clean Community Board is seeking volunteers and donations for roadside litter cleanup events and educational initiatives for local schools.

Director Jimmy Dale Sanders said approximately $6,500 is needed to continue the nonprofit organization’s educational program, which was funded last year through a collaboration of several organizations in Pike County. Funds are also needed to purchase supplies for cleanup events, he said.

The educational program provides an environmental instructor who travels to schools throughout the county to talk to students about environmental stewardship and the importance of keeping communities clean.
PRIDE volunteers have been doing just that locally. Since Sanders took the director’s seat in Pike County 11 years ago, he’s overseen the cleanup of approximately 300 illegal dumps in Pike County.
Officials still find an occasional small, illegal dump, he said, but most of the major, illegal dumps are no longer a problem.


Morehead Man Charged With Robbing Convenience Store

Kentucky State Police arrested 25 year old Brandon H. Gregory from Morehead after they say he robbed the Stop and Shop on Route 519 in Morehead Saturday afternoon. Gregory was caught in nearby woods after he fled from the convenience store. Gregory had a stolen handgun, but State Police don't believe the gun was used during the robbery. Gregory is charged with receiving stolen property and theft of a firearm.


Arrest Made In Floyd County Robbery

An arrest has been made in connection with a robbery that occurred in Floyd County on January 14, 2011 at the Adkins Quik Stop in Honaker. Jeremy L Pennington, 31, of Ligon was arrested and charged with
robbery first-degree, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, and persistent felony offender first-degree.

Detective Kevin Newsome with the Kentucky State Police at Post 9 in Pikeville was the investigator in the incident. Newsome was able to identify Pennington based on fingerprints left at the scene.

Pennington was lodged in the Floyd County Detention Center.


Holsclaw To Enter Gubernatorial Race

Republican Bobbie Holsclaw, of Louisville, where she has been elected county clerk four times, said Sunday she plans to enter the governor's race. Holsclaw says she and Bill Vermillion, a retired Navy master chief from Caneyville who will be her running mate, will file candidacy papers on Tuesday. Holsclaw interviewed several potential running mates in recent weeks before settling on Vermillion, a political newcomer who teaches military science at a Louisville high school. Her entry makes the GOP primary a three-way race. State Senate President David Williams and Louisville businessman Phil Moffett, a tea party candidate, have already filed to run. Democratic Governor Steve Beshear has only one opposing primary candidate, Harlan County scrap metal dealer Otis Hensley, who plans to officially enter the race before the Tuesday evening filing deadline. Independent candidate Gatewood Galbraith, a Lexington lawyer, also is running.


Bill Would Require Hospitals To Report Hospital-Acquired Infections

Under a bill pending in the Kentucky General Assembly, hospitals in Kentucky would be required to report all infections acquired by patients during their stay in the facility to state officials. Senate Bill 72, filed last week by Senator Denise Harper Angel, D-Louisville, would also require all hospitals to implement infection-prevention programs. Harper Angel says the cost of infections acquired during hospital stays is staggering, but Kentucky Hospital Association Vice President Nancy C. Galvagni says the measure duplicates a requirement by the federal government, and adding another system of reporting would be burdensome, and there is no need for a new state mandate which would only add additional, unneeded costs on Kentucky's hospitals and state government. Harper Angel and backers of the measure say the federal reporting requirements have not stopped hospital-acquired infections which has caused as many as 1,400 deaths a year in Kentucky. Hospitals would also have to implement infection prevention programs for acute care areas such as surgical and intensive care units. Facilities that fail to report would first get a citation but would be fined up to $1,000 a day for a second violation in six months and a fine of $20,000 for three or more violations within six months.


"Bath Salts" Under Investigation

When Neil Brown got high on dangerous chemicals sold as bath salts, he took his skinning knife and slit his face and stomach repeatedly.

Brown survived, but authorities say others haven't been so lucky after snorting, injecting or smoking powders with such innocuous-sounding names as Ivory Wave, Red Dove and Vanilla Sky.

Some say the effects of the powders are as powerful as abusing methamphetamine.

Mississippi lawmakers this week began considering a proposal to ban the sale of the powders, and a similar step is being sought in Kentucky. In Louisiana, the bath salts were outlawed by an emergency order after the state's poison center received more than 125 calls in the last three months of 2010 involving exposure to the chemicals.

Authorities say the chemicals can cause hallucinations, paranoia, rapid heart rates and suicidal thoughts. The chemicals are in products sold legally at convenience stores and on the Internet as bath salts and even plant foods. However, they aren't necessarily being used for the purposes on the label.


Knott County Highway Fatality

Kentucky State Police Post 13 in Hazard received a 911 call of an injury accident
on Ky-15 in the Carr Fork community of Knott County.
Preliminary investigation indicates that a commercial vehicle operated
by Calvin Turner age 47 of Birmingham, Alabama was traveling in reverse
in the northbound lane.

A passenger car operated by Christopher L. Collins age 34 of Viper, Ky. was traveling North in the northbound lane. Collins was approaching the commercial vehicle and was unable to stop
and avoid the collision due to weather conditions and slick roads. Mr.
Collins's vehicle struck the truck causing fatal injuries. Collins was
pronounced deceased at the scene by the Knott County Coroner. The
investigation is continuing by Tpr. Brandon Thomas and Tpr. Jonathan


Pike County Committee Assignments

The Pike County Government has taken a major step toward making it run more smoothly by forming several committees. These in-house committees of the court are set up every four years.

The purpose of these committees is to conduct county business and not violate the law, since a majority of the court cannot meet unless during regular sessions or work sessions.

“It is important the public knows we are vetting all issues through a committee system,” Pike County Judge-Executive Wayne T. Rutherford said. “It is equally important that we use these committees on every issue or problem we have. This makes it so much easier to govern over the next four years.”
