JOHNSON COUNTY – August 3, 2015 – Pickup and disposal of construction debris from destroyed or damaged homes and businesses along state routes affected by the July flash floods is set to begin Monday, August 10. The routes included are KY 172, KY 689, KY 1559, and KY 3214. Construction debris includes building materials such as drywall, lumber, carpet, furniture, and plumbing items.
Mary Westfall-Holbrook, Chief District Engineer, Highway District 12, said the district is assisting the Johnson County Fiscal Court with this part of the cleanup. “We are taking care of construction debris only. Other items such as regular household garbage, vegetative debris – tree branches, leaves, log – large appliances, electronics, and hazardous waste must be separated from the construction debris to be eligible for pickup.” She said that the district is not equipped to deal with hazardous materials and other types of debris require different disposal methods.
“The material that we will pick up is limited to construction debris from homes and other buildings that were damaged or destroyed during the recent flash floods,” Westfall-Holbrook explained. “There are guidelines that property owners and those who are assisting in the cleanup effort need to follow in order to take advantage of this service. These guidelines are important because they affect our ability to both properly dispose of the material and receive federal reimbursements in the event that a federal disaster is declared.”
Debris should be separated into six categories: Electronics, Large Appliances, Hazardous Waste, Vegetative Debris, Construction Debris, and Household Garbage. (See graphic from FEMA, attached.
Debris should also be safely placed adjacent to the road on state right-of-way. “We will not go on or across private property,” explained Darold Slone, the district’s engineering branch manager who supervises Johnson County.
Slone also cautioned people to put debris that they want to salvage themselves a safe distance away from roadside. “If it’s on state right of-way or right beside the road, we will assume you want it disposed of,” he said.
Flood victims who want to take advantage of this free service should have their construction debris piled up roadside no later than the last week of August. Pickups will occur periodically throughout the month. Anyone who has any questions regarding the debris pickup may call the Transportation Cabinet’s office in Staffordsville at 606-297-3124.

Loretto Foodland is known for its low meat prices, but apparently they weren’t low enough for a Raywick man who was caught stuffing steaks down his pants last week.
According to Marion County Sheriff Jimmy Clements, on the afternoon of April 13, Shawn M. Gribbins, 28, of Clell Mattingly Road was observed putting steaks down his pants. When he was confronted by store management, the man started pulling the stolen merchandise out of his pants and throwing it on the ground, Clements said.
Gribbins fled the store, but deputies arrested him later that day, and he’s been charged with second-degree criminal trespassing, shoplifting under $500, alcohol intoxication in a public place and resisting arrest.
Clements said Loretto Foodland has filed a criminal complaint against Gribbins for theft of more than $40 worth of merchandise.

STATE BEVERAGE CONTROL spokesperson Holly Mullins sent the following information after a public records request from The Lazer staff, which, she said, is normal procedure.
Ms. Mullins would not say when the new licenses go into effect but she said the liquor stores will probably be about 30 days later than the beer licenses.
The list below includes both applicants for full liquor license (Louisa is allowed only two stores because of its small size) and beer and malt liquor licenses of which there is no limit.
The liquor quota sales are the new quota package and NQ listed below but only two of the three will be awarded licenses by the state. Others who are filing for a beer and malt beverage license are called NQ and for restaurants it is NQ2.

Just wondering, and especially in light of the recent decision, if instructions to precinct workers about the news media in and around the polling places have been given to them and if there's any change from previous years?
I think certainly Secretary Grimes would not mind a photographer or videographer from a TV station showing her going into the polling place. But we're trying to determine if it's another "don't show faces, identify people, and shoot from the knees down or backside only" instructions.
