Fiscal Court balks on Huntington lawyer's opioid  proposal; Hogan wants to look it over...

LOUISA, KY. --  Well known Huntington, W.Va. attorney Bart Ketchum addressed the Lawrence Fiscal Court Tuesday morning about them joining in a class action lawsuit against wholesale drug companies that have flooded the area with opioids in the past few years.

Huntington, W.va. attorney Bart Ketchum attended Tuesday morning Lawrence Fiscal Court meeting.Huntington, W.va. attorney Bart Ketchum attended Tuesday morning Lawrence Fiscal Court meeting.Ketchum said the lawsuit would not cost Lawrence Co. taxpayers anything and the fees for his office would come from whatever settlement comes out of it from the drug companies. Then the law firm will take 30% of what could be a multi-million dollar deal. He said as many as 200 attorneys will be working on the case.

He said 400 million doses of oxycontin have been shipped into the Kermit-Williamson, W.Va. area in the past few years, a fact that was revealed in a CBS "60 Minutes" documentary Sunday.  The drugs have been sold all over the eastern part of the U.S.

Ketchum said if Lawrence joins in the lawsuit it will receive it's share of the settlement based on the number of people here compared to all the others who participate.

But judge/executive John Osborne and county attorney Mike Hogan were not convinced Lawrence County would benefit in joining other FIVCO counties like Boyd, and Greenup as well as Carter County and many others in W.Vawho have joined in the lawsuit effort. They, along with magistrates John J. Lemaster, Rick Blackburn and Morris Howard (Earl Boggs was absent) decided to table Ketchum's request for a month so they could look at the proposal more closely. Motion by John J. Lemaster, second by Morris Howard.

"I really don't like to get the county involved in federal lawsuits," Hogan said. "it is much better if we can start such an action in the Circuit Court here and go from there."

Other large payments have been made to areas by "Big Pharma" companies who have admitted the flow of opioids has been too substantial and is the cause of widespread addiction in eastern Ky. and southern W.Va.

Ketchum said if Lawrence joins in the lawsuit, which will be filed in federal district court in Ashland,  it will receive it's share of the settlement based on the number of people here compared to all the others who participate.

Public Comments:

Kelly Ward, FIVCO economic development directorKelly Ward, FIVCO economic development director*  FIVCO Economic Development director Kelly Ward spoke to the court concerning FEMA payment to Gary and Bridgett Robinson of Old Rt. 32 who have qualified under FEMA rules as a habitual flooding area that will be fixed at no cost to the county. Ward said it would be better to wait until next fiscal year to apply for the funds because they would then be in the front of the line as the only Lawrence County family to qualify. The creek behind their home is prone to flooding frequently and FEMA has agreed to fix the problem, he said.

*  Louisa resident Walt Blackburn approached the court asking if there was a way to divert some of the tax monies collected by the county's taxing districts to the Lawrence County Animal Shelter. He said the shelter could use some funding and he has noticed the taxing districts have monies that could be used for that purpose. "We give them $1,800 per month from the county and we recently gave them $10,000 to do Walt BlackburnWalt Blackburnwork on the shelter, " Osborne said. He said the fiscal court has no sayso over what the taxing districts do with their monies and suggested Blackburn visit those districts when they have their meetings and see if they would be agreeable.

* LevisaLazer.com Editor/Publisher Mark Grayson asked about the status of Thompson Sanitation as one of the county's six approved garbage collection companies after the news media has received at least three complaints that customer's garbage has not been collected by Thompson's but they have been billed anyway.  Osborne said Thompson's has been placed on "probation" until Jan. 1 at which time the county will reassess it's performace after complaints were made in past months. He said they are still one of the six authorized garbage collection companies and that customers with complaints should call the judge's office.

Adjournment.

Brewer charged with stealing $78,000 from Jackson Brothers Auto Service in 2014

The Lawrence County Grand Jury met on Friday, October 13th and while they only returned with seven Indictments, one of those includes the murder of Landyn T. Ballou.

Nicholas BallouNicholas BallouNicholas Ballou, the boy's father who is currently serving time for the horrific injuries that he inflicted upon his then two month old son in August of 2011 was indicted for murder last week.

The child suffered from cerebral palsy, permanent brain damage and was legally blind after the abuse from his own father. Ballou took an Alford Plea, accepting no responsibility for the child’s injuries that included multiple skull fractures and brain injuries.

Ballou, who went on the run from police for an extended time before being caught in Morgan Co. told his now ex-wife Amy that the baby had choked on his baby bottle. However, the child suffered major head trauma that left him legally blind and with permanent brain damage with three skull fractures.

Landyn has since died from the injuries and the Commonwealth is now charging Mr. Ballou with murder.
