 Nolan signs up for city council election

The filing deadline is approaching for the November 8th 2016 Election.

All six Louisa City Council seats are up for election.

Also three School Board Districts are open including  Dist. #2 Springhill, Adams, Brushy, Point, Stella Moore, Dist. #4 West Louisa, East Louisa, Meadowbrook and Dist. #5 Buchanan, Fallsburg, Deephole. Current BOE members Jim See, Heath Preston and Barbara Robinson are all up for re-election but none of them have signed up to run so far.

The City of Blaine will appear on the Ballot also although it has been dormant for nearly eight years.

The Filing deadline is August 9th 2016 at 4:00. 

John Nolan was the first to sign up to run for Louisa City Council after missing the deadline two years ago.John Nolan filed on June 30th for Louisa City Council.  

He was appointed to the council briefly in 2014 by then mayor Teddy Preston, but did not get his registration papers in on time for the next election. He ran a write-in candidacy which garmered more than 100 votes but was defeated.

Mayor Harold Slone does not have to run this time because the mayor has a four year term while council members are elected for two year terms.

Both City Council and BOE are non-partisan elections.

 

Intended rape victim  told police she squeezed his genitals "real hard" and McBride fled

 

McBrideA man seen naked in Downtown Henderson on Monday and accused of attempted rape made an initial court appearance on Wednesday afternoon.

Alan McBride, 29, appeared in Henderson District Court via video from the Henderson County Detention Center. A not guilty plea was entered for him.

A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for 9 a.m. July 7.

McBride faces charges of first-degree attempted rape, first-degree criminal mischief, first-degree indecent exposure, public intoxication (controlled substance, excludes alcohol), second-degree fleeing/evading police, third-degree criminal trespassing, second-degree disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

At his arraignment, McBride thanked the courts and attempted to apologize to the alleged victim, calling her a "wonderful woman" when Judge Foster Cotthoff interrupted.

"You do have the right to remain silent, Mr. McBride," said Judge Cotthoff. "I'm not your attorney, but I advise you to keep your mouth shut. Everything you are saying is being recorded and can be used against you in a court of law."

McBride was arrested Monday around 5 p.m. after being seen naked at Fifth and North Main streets, according to the police report. McBride ran from Officer Jake Isonhood who was dispatched to the scene and caught him in an alley between the 300 block of Third and Fourth streets.

Later it was reported to police that prior to his naked appearance, McBride attempted to rape a woman in her home. According to her statement, McBride stripped naked, threw her on the ground, ripped off her clothes and said, "You know you want me." She told police she squeezed his genitals "real hard" and McBride fled.

When asked about the incident, McBride told police he could not remember what happened at the house nor why he was naked outside.

McBride is being lodged at the Henderson County Detention Center under a $50,000 full cash bond.
