Representatives from Casey Co. VFW Post #5704 addressed the Casey County Fiscal Court at their monthly meeting yesterday. Post Commander Glen Phillips Jr., presented a plaque to Judge Executive Randy Dial expressing appreciation for the Courts cooperation and support in the restoration of the Doughboy statue and the installation of a new flag pole.


An attorney with the law firm representing Casey County in a class action Opioid lawsuit addressed the Court and told Magistrates that there are currently five pending settlements. Over the next 18 years, Casey County will receive just over $500,000. Use of those settlement funds will be highly restricted.


Under General Business, the Court approved the Sheriff's Annual Settlement, and accepted a little over $48,000 in Pre-Audit Excess Fees from the Sheriff's Office.


Under Road Business, Magistrates voted to hire Andy Ramsey to the Road Department as a Laborer.


Under Jail Business, a Jail Budget was presented and accepted. The Court will also be advertising for bids for Repair or Replacement of the Jail roof.


Under Miscellaneous Business, the Veteran's Administration is looking for office space for a Regional Office in Liberty. Judge Dial asked for any suggestions to be directed to his office.

Casey County Sheriff Chad Weddle gave his Monthly Report.

A representative from the Casey Co. Animal Advocacy Group informed the Court that, as of Monday, they had begun a Trap, Neuter & Release program for stray cats in the City. The group is also seeking public donations & volunteers. There was a very lengthy discussion concerning shelter & care for stray dogs in the County. There was also a debate over  the accuracy of some information that has been shared on social media.




(Frankfort, KY) - "Commonwealth Policy Center is pleased that the Kentucky General Assembly passed commonsense legislation that protects both children and parental rights with the passage of SB 150," said CPC Executive Director Richard Nelson. "We believe that children should not be sexualized in elementary grades with controversial, objectionable material that promotes radical gender ideology which tells them they can transcend their biological born sex.”


The bill keeps sex-ed out of the K-5 classroom and requires parental consent for grades 6-12. "We favor age-appropriate instruction," Nelson said. “But elementary school children are not mentally and emotionally ready for the introduction of sex-ed. Parents should have a say when controversial material is introduced in public schools after fifth grade."


SB 150 addressed controversial guidance from the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) that advised public school teachers to use gender-preferred pronouns of students and to keep gender identity private from parents if necessary. Such recommendations from KDE are prohibited. The bill also requires school districts to develop a policy for the use of restrooms, locker rooms, and shower rooms.


Just as it's not appropriate to push gender ideology to minors in our public schools, children cannot rightly consent to life-altering and irreversible hormone therapy and transition surgery that could lead to sterilization and lifelong health problems. Nelson pointed to two detransitioners who testified in the Senate Families and Children Committee. Both shared that they were steered toward "hormone therapy" and sex alteration surgery before the age of 18. Now, both young women are dealing with prolonged negative health effects.


SB 150 bans healthcare providers from prescribing puberty blockers or hormone therapy to minors for the purpose of altering their outward sex characteristics. Those found in violation will have their license revoked. "Children face enough challenges today in a culture that presses hard against them," Nelson said. "It's encouraging to see an overwhelming number of legislators stand in the gap for their health and well-being."




In this week's edition of The Commonwealth Matters we are joined by Adam, a teacher in Kentucky, to discuss the LGBT push in public schools.

A recently introduced bill that would legalize sports gambling in Kentucky (HB 551), is being pushed by bill sponsor State Rep. Michael Meredith (R-Oakland) and Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer (R-Georgetown). Both underscored the popularity of the issue on KET’s "Kentucky Tonight." According to a 2022 survey conducted by Western Kentucky University, 73% of respondents favor sports betting. Altogether, 36 states have legalized sports gambling. Both legislators argued that Kentucky is losing revenue to surrounding states that have legalized it. So why not legalize it and capture the revenue? But bigger considerations loom that few have considered as the state legislature ponders this perennial question.


Widespread sports gambling outside Las Vegas is fairly new. In 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a 1992 federal law that restricted it in most states, so the social consequences of widespread sports gambling remain to be seen. But based on past history, we have an idea of how this will turn out.


Legitimizing and mainstreaming sports gambling will hurt Kentuckians in three ways. First, it corrupts the integrity of sporting events. Second, it will likely accelerate addictive behavior. And finally, sports gambling will unduly affect our children by introducing them to a highly addictive behavior with a mobile device.


Consider that we’ve had a number of scandals related to players throwing games or referees fixing them. The University of Kentucky men’s basketball team lost its 1952-53 season because its players were involved in a point shaving scandal. In 2008, NBA referee Tim Donaghy spent time in jail for taking bribes to fix games he refereed. Most recently, rumors swirled around that last year’s FIFA World Cup soccer championship game was rigged. An investigative body couldn’t confirm the rumors, but Sports Illustrated exposed past corruption inside FIFA in a 2019 article “7 of the Most Infamous Match Fixing Scandals That Shook World Football.” Bribery of officials, players, and coaches involved with gambling-related match fixing is well documented.


In 2021, The Atlantic ran a story entitled “Sports Gambling Is a Disaster Waiting to Happen: Betting on Tom Brady’s next completion may sound like harmless fun. But it’s not.” Author Will Leitch presciently said, “People will forgive a lot in sports. But they do have to believe that the results are legitimate. Without that, the games are meaningless—a sinister chaos.”


Another concern over legalizing sports gambling is that it would likely accelerate addictive behavior. We are not just talking about betting on the outcome of sporting events. But there is in-game betting, where gamblers can bet on plays in real time with their phone in hand. Exhilarating, yes. Compelling, definitely. But should lawmakers neglect the dark side of a potentially addictive activity to everyone with a smartphone—an activity previously confined to physical locations? Once Draft Kings or FanDuel Apps are on user’s phone, and the game is over, gamblers can expect ads for video poker, video blackjack, and sundry other games.


Rep. Meredith argued that there are control structures to prosecute corruption and potential bribery. But how do regulators monitor in-game bets? How does one keep cash-strapped college athletes from taking a hundred bucks to strike out or miss a free throw that would not easily be detected?


Finally, how will mainstreaming sports gambling affect our children? How does one keep teenage boys off of gambling apps? Their pre-frontal cortex, not fully developed, lacks impulse control and cannot discern the consequences of present actions. Normalizing gambling to kids, many of whom will be ensnared in its throes, should be of great concern to all of us.


The tide of gambling expansion is pushing strong in the Commonwealth. But do we jeopardize the social and economic fabric of the Commonwealth we so love by current trends and desires and opinion polls? Is expanded gambling a healthy way to build our economy? Is it a reliable revenue stream? And will it build communities in a way that benefits all? These are questions that deserve answers.




A traffic stop leads to trafficking charges for a Liberty woman.

Around 11pm Sunday night, Deputy Jake Atwood, with Casey County Sheriff's Department, observed a 2014 Chevy Malibu pass another vehicle in a no passing zone on KY 70, about four miles west of Liberty. The car was traveling at a high rate of speed.

Deputy Atwood activated his emergency equipment in an attempt to initiate a traffic stop. As he approached the intersection of KY 70 & Linnie Rheber Rd, he noticed skid marks & smoke where the vehicle had wrecked.

The driver, 33 year old Neyse R. Richardson, of 30 Vallard Goode Rd., Liberty, refused medical treatment. She stated she never saw the Deputy's lights. She said she had swerved to miss a deer and lost control as she was traveling 70 mph.

Multiple pieces of a crystal like substance were found in the seat and on the driver's side of the vehicle. Richardson admitted she had dropped more narcotics as she exited the car. She also had nearly $900 in cash on her person.

Richardson is charged with Speeding (15mph over the limit), Improper Passing, Reckless Driving, Trafficking Methamphetamine (over 2 grams), & Tampering with Physical Evidence. She was lodged in the Casey County Jail.

Deputies Brandon Smith & Josh Rodgers assisted.




A Liberty man has been charged in connection with the theft of some expensive fishing gear.


Casey County Sheriff Chad Weddle says the victim, Shannon Scott, reported someone had removed several rods & reels from his garage, about five miles west of Liberty on KY 70. The theft happened around 10pm on the night of February 15th. The gear was stored in his boat, and all the garage doors were closed. The value of the stolen items were estimated at around $4,700.


During the investigation, Sheriff Weddle learned that Justin & Brandon Cain had purchased gear matching the description of items that were stolen in the theft. On Friday, March 3rd, that investigation led him to 29 year old Austin Scott of 29 Lanier Lane, Liberty, who stated he had entered the garage through an unlocked door, removed the fishing poles and later sold them.


Austin Scott was lodged in the Casey County Jail on charges of Burglary-3rd Degree, Theft by Unlawful Taking (over $1,000), and Tampering with Physical Evidence.


The fishing poles were undamaged, and were returned to Shannon Scott.

(Frankfort, KY) - A bill addressing unregulated drag shows in public places where children are present was debated in a Kentucky state Senate committee today. SB 115 proposes to restrict sexually explicit performances in public areas and to shield children from this activity. 


CPC Executive Director Richard Nelson told the Senate Veterans Military Affairs and Public Protection Committee that public drag performances that mimic stripping where children are present is becoming increasingly common. "There is a real need to restrict sexually oriented activities and to protect children from an activity that appeals to prurient interests," Nelson said. "The intention of the bill is to preserve the health, safety, and welfare of the community and to ameliorate the negative secondary effects associated with such sexual performances." 


Nelson added that restrictions on sexually oriented businesses and activity have been upheld in court. At least 14 other states are considering legislation similar to SB 115. Tennessee recently enacted a similar law.


"It is in the community's best interest to shield minors from activities and performances that are sexual in nature." SB 115 passed the Veterans Military Affairs and Public Protection Committee and is moving for a full vote in the Senate.
