Frankfort – Gov. Steve Beshear announced Tuesday that fiscal courts in 34 counties will receive refunds totaling $266,141.66 from mining permit and acreage fees.
“Our coal-producing counties are our partners, and these funds provide a direct benefit for their efforts,” Beshear said in a statement. “Every effort is being made by this administration to help the mining industry extract coal in a manner that is safe, efficient and protective of our environment.”
The Department for Natural Resources collects mining permit and acreage fees and returns a portion of the fees to coal-producing counties for projects that the fiscal courts deem beneficial to their communities.

Representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA) were in Lawrence County all of last week reviewing and reassessing road situations after the latest flooding complicated the already badly damaged roads from flooding earlier this year.
The Lawrence County Fiscal Court did not accept road repair bids last month because FEMA had to reevaluate roads and provide new specifications for repair. That process has still not been completed and will further delay acceptance of bids by the fiscal court at this month's meeting as well.
FEMA has not yet announced how much aid Lawrence County will receive for road damages caused by the flooding.
A separate branch of FEMA handles personal property damage, which is directed through each county's emergency management programs. The director for Lawrence County is Michael Woods. Woods has figures and info and a comment but has not sent it at this time.
To report personal property damage call 606-638-0334 or 606-624-5787
Lawrence County Emergency Management assisted in the search and rescue operation in Johnson County last week after the devastating flash flood that hit the Flat Gap area.
Several local churches and businesses collected food, water,clothing, and cleaning supplies, and transported the items to Johnson County shelters. Water was distributed to those in need by volunteers at the Blaine Community Center, which is not far from the Flat Gap area.
We here in Lawrence County express our sincere condolences for the families who lost loved ones in the Johnson County flood as well as all those who lost their homes and belongings.

The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press has created a great interactive online tool for journalists that charts "the policies of more than 100 police departments and laws in nearly every state regarding public access to police body camera videos," reports Reporters Committee.
The map "shows which states have passed bodycam legislation, which are considering action and which have nothing on the books," reports Reporters Committee. "Clicking on a state will bring up links to legislation and other materials, if available. Similarly, by clicking on individual cities, users can quickly see police department policies regarding the release of bodycam video to the public. Also included are court decisions, as relevant." (For an interactive version, click here)
(ED.- Curiously there is nothing in the tri-state area (Huntington, Ironton and Ashland or the surrounding area OR ANY OF THE THREE STATES about laws and regulations for the use of the potentionaly lethal weapons.)
