County considers draft of public nuisance ordinance

by Stephen Scalf

During the fiscal court’s Feb. 14 regular monthly meeting, County Attorney Dawn C. Letcher reviewed a draft copy of a public nuisance ordinance with the fiscal court members, explaining that the county is authorized und chapter 82 of the Kentucky Revised Statute to establish and enforce ordinances that include criminal punishment (such as fines) for violators.

The ordinance, as written described six types of nuisances, but Ms. Letcher felt that the fiscal court should review and better define the roles and responsibilities of individuals charged with identifying violators, inspecting the properties accused of violating the ordinance, serving notice of violation, and hearing appeals.

The portion of the ordinance that led to a majority of the discussion was that trash and rubbish would not be permitted to be stored in plain view of the road or a neighboring property, and that no more than three junked, scrapped, or otherwise inoperable vehicles of pieces of equipment would be permitted to be stored on a piece of property.

Cheerleaders take fifth at state

by Stephen Scalf

Friday morning, the Nicholas County cheerleaders headed out for Bowling Green to compete in the 2012 KAPOS State At-Large Competition, held in Western Kentucky University’s Diddle Arena.

This was only the fourth time in the high school’s history that the cheerleaders had advanced onto state after winning the region, with previous appearances in 1983, 1984 and 2005, but each time falling short of the coveted championship trophy.

This year, with the young ladies participating in the Super Large category for the first time the Lady Jackets brought home a trophy, placing 5th behind Pleasure Ridge Park, Butler Traditional, Daviess County and Prestonsburg High Schools.

"No clue how it happened," posted senior Destiney Johnson, "But so worth it to take home that trophy."

Fiscal court reaches interim agreement with NCAWS

In last Tuesday’s regular meeting of the fiscal court, Ms. Betsy Kelley was invited to address the magistrates and introduced herself as the new president of the Nicholas County Animal Welfare Society (NCAWS).

"I am here hoping to make a new start with the fiscal court," Ms. Kelley said. "The purpose for which NCAWS was formed was to protect and find homes for as many dogs as possible. We are respectfully requesting access to the dogs so we can make sure they are healthy, can be trained to walk on a leash, and evaluate our ability to find a new home for them."

Magistrate Jeff Randolph was one of the first to speak, stating that he knew there had been problems in the past, but that if there are volunteers in the community who are willing to help at the shelter, it just would be wise for the fiscal court to turn this down.

Magistrate Mike Webb had some reservations: "If it all works out, this could be a good thing; but if something goes wrong, it could become a major problem, creating a liability issue for the fiscal court."
