GOV. BESHEAR'S 7/28 UPDATE

FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 28, 2020) – Gov. Andy Beshear on Tuesday updated Kentuckians on the state’s continuing efforts to fight the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).

 

“We are at war with this virus. It has come to take the lives of our people, it has tried to turn everything about our lives upside down, and it’s our job to fight back,” the Governor said. “This is a war fought by every single one of us. Every single individual’s actions matter.”

 

Gov. Beshear again warned that without everyone complying with safety requirements – including social distancing, wearing face coverings and avoiding travel to virus hotspots – we risk squandering our hard work and facing the devastation being experienced by some other states.

 

“Today, again, tough news for Florida and Texas: Florida setting a record for deaths in a single day and in Texas, every six minutes and 16 seconds they are losing someone to COVID-19,” the Governor said. “But again, we are at a point in time where we have the ability to stop this before it gets anywhere close to what we’ve seen in those states.”

 

Case Information


As of 4 p.m. July 28, Gov. Beshear said there were at least 28,126 coronavirus cases in Kentucky, 532 of which were newly reported Tuesday. Twenty-one of the newly reported cases were from children ages 5 and younger, including a 2-month-old girl from Madison County and a 7-month-old boy from Graves County.

 

“Today’s update gives us hope that we may be seeing a new plateau or stabilization, although it is too early to come to that conclusion,” the Governor said. “It’s also the first time the positivity rate has gone down in four days. My hope is that the facial covering requirement is starting to kick in and help.”

 

Unfortunately, Gov. Beshear reported 10 new deaths Tuesday, raising the total to 719 Kentuckians lost to the virus.

 

The deaths reported Tuesday include a 74-year-old woman from Butler County; an 84-year-old man from Fayette County; two women, ages 86 and 87, and an 82-year-old man from Jefferson County; two women, ages 89 and 101, and an 83-year-old man from Logan County; a 37-year-old man from Lyon County; and a 73-year-old woman from Oldham County.

 

“Let’s remember, high cases means we lose more Kentuckians,” said Gov. Beshear. “Every time we do something that spreads the virus, we expose more people to that potential outcome.

As of Tuesday, there have been at least 599,251 coronavirus tests performed in Kentucky. The positivity rate currently stands at 5.08%. At least 7,470 Kentuckians have recovered from the virus.

For additional information, including up-to-date lists of positive cases and deaths, as well as breakdowns of coronavirus infections by county, race and ethnicity, click here.

 

Kerner Commission 2.0


Gov. Beshear highlighted Tuesday a new effort in Kentucky that aims to pick up the mantle of the landmark National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders, better known as the Kerner Commission, which was established 53 years ago today by President Lyndon Johnson.

Simmons College of Kentucky in Louisville recently announced the formation of a Kerner Commission 2.0, for which Gov. Beshear said his administration will offer support.

 

The original Kerner Commission was tasked with working to understand the root causes of civil unrest and violence that plagued several major cities during the summer of 1967. The report concluded: “Our nation is moving toward two societies, one Black, one white – separate and unequal.”

 

“Today, 53 years after his call for answers, our nation still is struggling with racial inequity and history continues to replay itself before our very eyes,” the Governor said. “Undoubtedly, progress has been made in civil rights as a nation, but we can’t deny the disparities that still exist for Black people in our great nation and even in our great commonwealth.”

 

The Governor noted that most of the report’s recommendations went unheeded and that the civil unrest seen in recent months mirrors what happened in 1967. The new Kerner Commission 2.0 soon will name its commissioners and convene as a statewide brain trust to help identify current problems and potential solutions.

 

“As Governor, I support this work because it’s important,” Gov. Beshear said. “I support it because it’s the right thing to do. I support this work now because it can’t wait.”

 

New Actions to Fight Surge in Cases


On Monday, Gov. Beshear announced new actions, conceived through and backed by guidance from the White House, to stem the growing number of coronavirus cases and rising test positivity rate in the commonwealth.

 

Under a new order from the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, bars are closed and restaurants are limited to 25% of pre-pandemic capacity indoors. The Governor and the Kentucky Department for Public Health will monitor case numbers over the next two weeks with the goal of reopening bars and restoring restaurant capacity after that time.

 

In addition, the Governor is recommending public and private schools to avoid offering in-person instruction until the third week of August.

 

The new actions followed previous moves by Gov. Beshear’s administration, including a travel advisory that recommends a 14-day self-quarantine for Kentuckians who travel to states and U.S. territories that are reporting a positive coronavirus testing rate equal to or greater than 15%. For an updated list of areas meeting that threshold, click here. In addition, the Cabinet for Health and Family Services issued an order pulling back the guidance on non-commercial gatherings to allow only for meet-ups of 10 or fewer people.

 

Fiscal Year 2020 Budget Update


Expanding on some good news about fiscal year 2020, Gov. Beshear announced Monday that the General Fund revenues ended up $104.6 million above the budgeted estimate, at a total of nearly $12 billion. The General Fund surplus will be $177.5 million.

 

The Governor has said the improved economic footing means there will be no budget cuts to K-12 education, post-secondary education, and health and public safety, and no cuts to the Judicial or Legislative branch budgets.

 

After holding back $15 million for necessary government expenses, Gov. Beshear said the $162.5 million going to the rainy day fun, which is called the Budget Reserve Trust Fund, will bring it up to $465.7 million.

 

Gov. Beshear cautioned that the outlook for fiscal year 2021 remains challenging.

HOMELAND SECURITY GRANT ANNOUNCED FOR CASEY COUNTY

 

The Kentucky Office of Homeland Security has awarded the Casey County with a $105,000.00 competitive grant to transition to a remote host platform. The Casey County grant application was one of 61 considered for these funds awarded through the State Homeland Security Grant Program.

 

The grant will allow the Casey County Fiscal Court to acquire necessary medical equipment for local first responders to utilize as they respond to emergencies and perform their duties.

 

“This is great news for our community and for our brave first responders who will be well equipped to tackle any situation that may arise.” Rep. Daniel Elliott said. “It is important that our local officials have the resources available to update the technology necessary to ensure that our citizens are being served safely and effectively.” 

 

The current statute provides $3 million in available funding for the 2020 911 competitive grant cycle. By law, all grant funding is directed to projects that will help Kentucky develop Next Generation 911(NG911) capabilities.

 

This grant was made possible by the State Homeland Security Grant Program. Funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the State Homeland Security Grant Program (SHSGP) provides resources to city and county governments, special taxing districts, and public school districts to purchase first responder equipment, communications equipment, critical infrastructure protection, and cybersecurity protection.

CASEY COUNTY FISCAL COURT REPORT

 

The Casey County fiscal Court met in regular session Monday.

 

The magistrates voted to approve a partial payment on a baler and a shredder for the recycling center, thanks to a grant of nearly $28,000. They approved transfer fees on three new dump trucks the county recently purchased thanks to another grant of around $105,000.

 

The court approved a first reading of a budget amendment to reflect those two grants. Judge Executive Randy Dial says there may be more amendments coming to the budget due to COVID-19.

 

The court also approved a motion to once again seek a private audit firm for the yearly audit, which translates to a big savings to the county over having it done through the state.

 

Judge Dial recommended reappointing current members of the ethics board for another term, including Philip Godbey, Ricky Carmen, Ashley Lynn, and Dwight Coffman. He also recommended David Bennett to fill a fifth position. Those motions were approved.

 

The magistrates also voted to retain Kay-Co insurance for county employees.

 

The fiscal court went into executive session for about 20 minutes to discuss acquisition of real property. No action was taken.

 

Judge Dial expressed appreciation to everyone who pitched in recently to prepare the Ag Center for horse show activities. Since current state guidelines do not allow the use of inmate labor, the fiscal court is canceling all horse shows schedule at the Ag Center for the month of August. 

Gateway Park also remains closed.

 

Casey County Sheriff Chad Weddle gave his monthly activity report for the month of June.

 

The next regular meeting of the Casey County Fiscal Court is scheduled for Aug. 3rd.

2020 MARION CO. HAM DAYS CANCELED DUE TO COVID-19

 

Due to the many concerns and risks surrounding the current Covid-19 pandemic, the Marion County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Marion County Country Ham Days scheduled for September 25-27.

 

The decision was reached after extensive research and discussion about the corona virus and numerous challenges to ensure the health and safety of our volunteers and attendees. An event of this size creates an impossibility for social distancing and required temperature and health checks. In addition, Covid-19 coverage is not included in our liability insurance policy.

 

Although all events have been cancelled, we are exploring the option of hosting a “virtual” Pokey Pig 5K and an outdoor Central Kentucky Idol and hope to be announcing details soon.

 

The Chamber Board understands the impact of this decision but, considers the safety of our community the highest priority.

 

We appreciate the tremendous support from our community and the many Country Ham Days’ sponsors and volunteers over the last 50 years and are already looking forward to 2021!

U-HAUL BANDIT

 

A Somerset man is accused of residential burglaries and making his get-away in a U-Haul truck.

 

Pulaski Sheriff Greg Speck reports, 40 year old Corey Hatfield was arrested for Burglary, 2nd Degree by Deputy Branson Patterson on early Saturday.

 

Deputy Patterson received a 911 dispatch call to watch for a U-Haul van leaving a
residence near Dry Branch Road. There was a previous report of a U-Haul 
seen in that area a couple of days prior and may have been involved in a break-in.


Deputy Patterson observed a vehicle matching that description on Ogden Street,
but due to traffic was not able to stop it until he was on US 27.

 

During his investigation, the Deputy was able to identify stolen property from the previous
burglary. He also learned that Mr. Hatfield had rented the U-Haul a couple of days
earlier on July 9, 2020.

 

Mr. Hatfield was lodged at the Pulaski County Jail.

 

The items stolen were seized and returned to the victim of the burglary.


This investigation continues. Investigators say additional arrests may be
forthcoming.

FATAL CRASH IN PULASKI COUNTY EARLY THURSDAY

 

Pulaski County Deputies responded to a fatal collision early Thursday morning, just before 2am on KY Highway 90. 


Investigators say the driver, Johnny Louis Curtis, age 57, of Montgomery, Michigan, was operating a tractor-trailer westbound when he lost control and overturned. Mr. Curtis was entrapped in the cab of the truck and had to be extricated by first responders. 


Mr. Curtis was flown from the scene by Air Methods to the University of Kentucky Hospital for treatment.


Also in the vehicle was his wife, Lynne Marie Curtis, age 64, who was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Pulaski County Coroner.

 

A dog was located in the vehicle and was removed from the scene by Pulaski
County Animal Control.


Deputies say the driver may have avoided or struck an object lying in the road. Found at the scene were an engine block, two push mowers, a small John Deere pull-type trailer, and other items. These items look like they may have fallen from another vehicle or pull-type utility trailer. 


Sheriff Greg Speck is asking for any business or resident that has video cameras to check around 2am to see if they can identify any vehicle that may have been carrying that type of load. Even if businesses and residents who are not in that area could check their cameras because you never know which direction this vehicle may have come from. 


Anyone having any information is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 606-678-5145. You do not have to give your name.
