Smithland Bridge one lane on Tuesday

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to reduce traffic to one lane on the US 60 Cumberland River Bridge at Smithland on Tuesday.
The lane restriction is to allow follow-up work on the deck rehab project that was completed during the summer.
The Smithland Bridge will be restricted to one lane with alternating traffic flow controlled by flaggers from approximately 8 a.m., to 3 p.m. Work may extend into Wednesday, if required.
Motorists should be alert for slowing and stopped traffic on the bridge approach. Construction personnel will be working along the center line of the bridge deck in close proximity to traffic flow. Appropriate caution is required in this work zone.
This work is scheduled on a weather permitting basis.
The US 60 Cumberland River bridge at Smithland, also known as the Lucy Jefferson Lewis Memorial Bridge and the Smithland Bridge, is at Livingston County mile point 12.348. About 5,500 vehicles cross the bridge in an average day.
The Smithland Bridge opened to traffic in 1931.

City looking for new raw water source

After a series of droughts raised concerns about the City of Marion's raw water source, local officials are becoming much more proactive in finding a longterm solution. Last week, geologists were in town studying an old fluorspar mine inside the city limits with hopes of finding a large cache of water that could be made suitable for drinking.

Geologists and city officials believe there is plenty of raw water in the caverns of the old Lucile Mine at the end of East Elm Street behind the city maintenance garage. If it is of sufficient quantity and quality, the water could be extracted, treated and distributed to residents.

Fears are that the current raw water source, Lake George, which is currently 12 feet below normal pool, may one day be unable to supply the city with enough water to keep residents happy.

Results of the geological study, commissioned by the City of Marion, should be available in a few days. Read more about this matter in today's printed edition of The Crittenden Press, on sale at newsstands after 3 p.m.

Pictured are geologists from the University of Kentucky examining data on their computerized field gear.

Midnight Madness tonight

The Rockets and Lady Rockets basketball teams will host Midnight Madness tonight as they gear up for the Nov. 30 opener.

“I did this when I coached in Marion and Christian counties,” boys' coach Brad Fraser said. “It really brought a lot of interest to our teams and allowed fans to come watch them before the season actually started. It also helps that the players get to have fun while doing it.”

Not only will the high school players be introduced to the crowd, but it will also give the little league traveling teams and cheerleaders a chance to be recognized. There will also be a 3-point shootout and five-minute scrimmages for the Rockets and Lady Rockets high school teams.

“We want to make this fun while sparking interest,” Fraser said. “It’s a really great thing for the community.”

The event will be from 10 p.m., to midnight with ticket prices $3 for adults and $2 for students.

Livestock market checks good, manager says

The office manager of West Kentucky Livestock Market in Marion says all outstanding checks made recently to cattle farmers are good.

Linda Edwards said Thursday that a few checks issued to area producers have not been cashed. She said no checks written by West Kentucky Livestock have been returned for insufficient funds.

West Kentucky Livestock Market, which operates the weekly cattle auction in Marion, is owned by Thomas Gibson, of New Albany, Ind. Gibson also owns the financially-troubled Eastern Livestock Company.

Edwards said the Marion livestock market's legal counsel has advised it to remain closed until the matter with Eastern Livestock is settled. Eastern is now in receivership.

Traffic accidents way up in county

There have been an alarming number of accidents in Crittenden County this year, almost 225.

The sheriff’s department has worked 104 wrecks, more than normal and 40 percent more than a year ago. Marion Police have investigated 73 wrecks and Kentucky State Police have investigated another 47. There have been four fatal accidents, resulting in the deaths of five people in Crittenden County this year. That, too, is more than usual. Fortunately, this county averages about two or fewer traffic deaths a year.

“We have had way too many crashes this year,” said Crittenden County Deputy Don Perry. “We can’t keep our reports caught up.”

There were five accidents Saturday in the area, three almost at the same time in Crittenden and Livingston counties.

Local traffic enforcement officers say speed and inattention are also playing a major role in accidents. Deer are not always to blame. Deputies and state police have told The Press in the past week that speeding is a pervasive problem on the county’s narrow highways.

Veterans honored with events today

At the 11th hour of the 11th day of November 1918, the Armistice was signed, marking the end of fighting on the Western Front of the First World War. From that event, we have what is now commonly called Veterans Day, which is being observed as customary today on Nov. 11.

J.T. Travis, commander of the Ellis B. Ordway American Legion Post 111, says this year’s service at the Veterans’ Memorial at Mapleview Cemetery will center on those men who fought in World War I.

“We’ve lost all of them now,” Travis said. “But we wanted to make them our theme.”

World War II veterans will be given time to speak about their memories of those men who fought in the Great War before them.

“It was a noble effort. They called it the war to end all wars,” Travis said.

The annual legion service will be held at the 11th hour to commemorate the Armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compi├Ęgne, France.

The Mapleview service includes the Boy Scouts, Taps and a brief program by local veterans.

Crittenden County School District will also host a Veterans Day celebration starting at 8:30 a.m., at Rocket Arena.

The event will include a program and reception for veterans. The public is invited to the attend the event. For information, contact Holly White at 965-3525 or Teresa Marshall at 965-5221.

Gasoline prices spike amid fire, supply & demand

An online fuel price watchdog says gasoline in Kentucky could climb to more than $3 a gallon in the coming days.

"A small fire at a Chicago area refinery and a key move by the Federal Reserve has resulted in a large increase in wholesale gasoline prices," reports GasBuddy.com.

Wholesale gasoline prices have risen sharply in the last 72 hours, prompted by the fire in Illinois, a move by the Federal Reserve to inject $600 billion into the U.S. economy, driving down the value of the dollar, and yet another Department of Energy report showing healthy demand for petroleum amid shrinking supplies.

Gasoline in Marion rose to over $2.75 a gallon on Thursday.

Since the start of the week, gas stations have seen their wholesale cost rise as much as thirty five cents per gallon across several Midwest states, reports GasBuddy. As stations pass along their higher costs to consumers, it could lead to the highest fuel prices in 25 months.

"Unfortunately for motorists, we've seen quite a few events this week that have added significant pressure on gasoline prices to rise," says Patrick DeHaan, Senior Petroleum Analyst for GasBuddy. "Since oil prices have broken out of a well established range, I'm quite concerned we could continue to see not only oil prices rise, but gasoline and diesel prices as well."

Error in Press election coverage

The vote totals on the front page of The Press this week reversed the votes received by Donnetta Travis and Wayne Winters in the Fifth Magisterial District. Travis won the election with 59.5 percent of the vote. She received 429 votes and Winters received 292. The totals reported online and in the recap sheet of each precinct on the back page of the newspaper were correct. We apologize for the error on the front page.

Highway work near Sullivan next few days

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict traffic to one lane on US 60 in southern Union County on weekdays starting today.

Flaggers may be used periodically to facilitate the movement of equipment and materials as the work progresses these two days. On Monday, lane restrictions will be required. Delays should generally be less than 5 minutes. However, occasionally a few longer delays may be required during the movement and placement of equipment to facilitate the work.

Approximately 2,000 vehicles travel this section of US 60 near the Union-Crittenden County Line in an average day.

Three injured in accident on U.S. 641

UPDATED: Crittenden County emergency response agencies were on the scene of a serious accident on U.S. 641 South near the Caldwell County line at around 8 p.m., Wednesday.

Crittenden EMS, rescue squad and other agencies from Caldwell and Crittenden counties responded, including Kentucky State Police.

The highway was temporarily blocked but was open to traffic by 8:30 p.m.

Three people were taken to the hospital, two in critical condition. Brooke Coleman of Eddyville was driving the Pontiac Montana van. Her two children, Issac and Jaden, sustained serious injuries. Brooke was taken to the hospital, too, but her injuries were not as severe.

Flu shots available for students, others

Crittenden County students can get flu shots at any of the three school nurse clinics. Standard cost is $25, but that can vary based on insurance.

The vaccination is available to parents, siblings and even individuals without children in school. For more information, call the school nurse’s station at 965-9008.

Single-vehicle accident at Rosebud

Rescue Squad and other emergency personnel were called to the scene of an accident at Rosebud Curve on U.S. 60 East just before 7 a.m., Wednesday.
