  • Puppy mill dogs — one year later

    When Michelle Adkins turned on the news Dec. 13, 2011, she was moved to act.

    More than 200 animals had been seized from Terri and Kenneth Smith, and Adkins wanted to help.

    “It blew my mind,” Adkins said of the television news footage.

    The Smiths both faced 218 counts of 2nd degree animal cruelty. One week after the raid by Henry County Animal Control — who alleged that the Smiths were operating a puppy mill — Kenneth Smith killed himself.

    A Waddy man who lost a battle in the state Court of Appeals on Dec. 21 may not be giving up his fight to have his doctor held accountable for amputating his penis.

  • KSP seek help with unsolved cases

    The Kentucky State Police are renewing their effort to solve unsolved cases by asking the public for assistance with leads.  In 2010, KSP distributed more than 8,000 decks of playing cards to prisons across Kentucky depicting unsolved case information.

    The deck of cards highlighted 52 unsolved Kentucky homicide or missing person cases.  Since that time, three of those cases have been solved.

    KSP hopes that sharing information with the public again will provide fresh leads that can help solve these cases and bring some closure to families.

  • Warriors win another thriller

    For certain athletes time runs slowly in tense, hectic moments. When that happens, it’s usually bad for their opponents.
