Police investigating burglaries in Marion

Marion Police Chief Ray O’Neal is encouraging city residents to keep an outdoor light on at night and be sure vehicle doors are locked following a spate of burglaries over the past few days.

A couple of parked vehicles were burglarized before midnight Sunday night and there have been a number of other similar reports over the past week, the chief said.

“Leaving an outside light on deters criminals about as well as anything,” he said. “And make sure vehicles are locked.”

About $400 in cash, cellular phone accessories, a purse and other items have been taken from unlocked parked vehicles along streets and driveways. There is also evidence that the burglars were inside of at least one garage. 

Most of the nefarious activity has been around North Weldon, East Carlisle and North College streets, but there was at least one more on Old Morganfield Road where they took a flashlight from a parked truck.

The chief says these appear to be crimes of convenience where the burglars are not physically breaking into anything, simply taking from unlocked vehicles. 

He encourages residents to also make sure outbuildings and garages are locked up at night.

Some home security video has captured images of the believed burglars and police are currently working on leads provided by the video.


If you see anything suspicious or have information about any of the burglaries, call Marion Police Department at 270.965.3500.

Hayride hails New Year with free event

The Old Kentucky Hayride, a musical movement taking the community by storm, will be on stage on New Year’s Eve at Fohs Hall with a pickin’ party that’s open to anyone and admission will be free. 

Billed as an Old Fashioned Country Music Pickin', it will be a community appreciation event. “

Can you remember when folks got together at each others homes and just played music and sang? Well, that's how we plan to bring in the New Year and we want you to do it with us!” organizers said in a post on the Hayride’s social media site. 

Shelley Singleton, who helps organize and promote the events, says everyone should “Bring your guitar or just come to listen and visit with your friends and neighbors. Sit around, pick and sing with the Hayride house band and many others. Come as you are to this casual, family friendly night of fun. We'll reminisce, tell stories, play music, and have a great time! And stay as late as you want."

The event begins at 7pm and will feature the Hayride house band and much more.

Jail earns Chamber's monthly recognition

Crittenden County Detention Center was selected as the Chamber of Commerce Organization of the Month for December. The recognition is sponsored by Ed Jones, Mickey Alexander, broker. Pictured are Chamber and Detention Center employees and represenatives (seated from left) Melissa Kirk, Susan Gilland, Whitney Parish, Athena Hayes, (standing from left) Amy Samuels, Elizabeth Floyd, Natalie Parish, Charlie Day, Jan Cox, Jeffery Wyatt, Dylan Tabor, Jailer Robbie Kirk, Judge-Executive Perry Newcom, Kevin Maxfield, Steve Watson, Brandi Binkley, Shelly Davidson, Jessie Collins, Madison Qualls and Kelsey Berry. The jail was recognized because of its work release program that benefits many in the community.

Chamber retiring monthly awards
Crittenden County Chamber of Commerce has retired its Business or Orgnaization of the Month program in favor of something less frequent.

The group made the decision at this month’s regular meeting, citing a desire to make the honor a bit more substative.

“We want to really make it a big deal,” said Chamber President Elizabeth Floyd.

She said the idea is to create a bigger splash for those who are honored.

Crittenden County Detention Center was singled out with the Chamber’s final monthly recognition for December. Mickey Alexander and Ed Jones, the local financial consulting firm, has been sponsoring the monthly awards.

Floyd said the jail administration, employees and its work-release program saved the community and taxpayers money with the work they provide in the community. She said guards and inmates are a big help, too, when it comes to helping the Chamber of Commerce prepare for and clean up after activities such as the Pumpkin Festival, held downtown each fall.

“Jailer Kirk  sent over a team of men to help with chairs and tables that had to be moved from the basement of the courthouse. Since it was mainly Chamber women that worked the festival, that really helped us out tremendously,” Floyd said.

“Beginning with the first quarter of 2020, we will be starting the Chamber Spotlight,” Floyd added, pointing out the honor’s new moniker.

The Chamber of Commerce serves a variety of roles in the community from supporting local retail industry to organizing and hosting community events and festivals. It meets at 9 a.m., on the first Tuesday of each month at Marion City Hall. The Chamber’s office is located inside city hall.

County tax forms due Dec. 31

Business owners, farmers and contractors in Crittenden County should have received a letter and business license application and renewal form through the U.S. Mail earlier this month.

Crittenden County Treasurer Yvette Martin said 580 were mailed in early December.

The county is working diligently to make sure business licenses are renewed at the proper time.
In the past, as many as half of the county’s business owners did not complete and return the license renewal form and pay as required by ordinance at the beginning of each calendar year.

It has simply been an oversight for some businesses that operate on fiscal years, Martin said. Others have failed to complete the renewal form or apply for a county business license if they’ve never had one.

All county business licenses expire on Dec. 31. They are payable by Jan. 31 at the county judge-executive’s office. The fee is $25, which will be credited to the business if it owes... for the rest of this article see the Dec. 12, 2019 printed edition of The Crittenden Press.

No-Kill Shelter on Brink of Closure


What’s it going to take to keep saving the lives of shelter dogs and cats in Crittenden County?

That’s a question those charged with overseeing the Mary Hall-Ruddiman no-kill animal shelter will be wrestling with after the first of the year.

The non-profit organization is running out of money fast, and options are limited as to what will happen to the dogs and cats living there once the cookie jar is empty.

The shelter, which celebrated its ninth anniversary last week, was established with funding from the late Hall-Ruddiman, who bequeathed more than $250,000 to the county. She passed away in 2007, endowing the idea of a shelter for dogs and cats that would never be put to sleep, even if no one adopted them. Ever.

Today, there are a handful of dogs... For the rest of this article, please subscribe online or see the printed edition of this week's Crittenden Press.

Back in jail 24 years after being ordered out of KY

A convicted felon who was court-ordered out of Kentucky in 1995 is back behind bars in Marion, charged with leading police on a high-speed chase, possession of methamphetamine and other crimes.

John Allen Kinnis, 48, of Marion was indicted this month by the Crittenden County Grand Jury on felony charges of first-degree fleeing or evading police and first-degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine). Additionally, he was indicted on a variety of misdemeanor charges.

Court records indicate that Kinnis eluded police in a high-speed automobile chase several weeks ago and was eventually arrested a few days later in Crittenden County.

Twenty-four years ago, Kinnis was ordered to leave Kentucky by then Crittenden Circuit Judge Tommy Chandler, when those types of options were available to judges. A jury had convicted Kinnis in 1995 of burglarizing the home of an elderly Dycusburg woman. His 10-year prison sentence was ... for the rest of this article, see the Dec. 19, 2019 full edition of The Crittenden Press, available in print form or digitally here with a subscription to the newspaper's eEdition.

Flu confirmed in Crittenden and Livingston

In Crittenden and Livingston counties, clinics have reported a handful of confirmed cases of influenza, but healthcare professionals here say there is no widespread outbreak.

Over the past couple of weeks a few cases have been confirmed in Marion and others in Livingston County.

Flu shots are available at almost every local pharmacy and clinic in Crittenden and Livingston counties. Health departments are also a great resource for flu shots. Crittenden County’s health department off Industrial Drive is offering vaccinations by appointment, usually same day. Cost is $25 for adults and $19 for those 18 and under.

It's also important to practice good hygiene to avoid the flu, such as covering your cough and making sure you are washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds – or the time it takes to sing "Happy Birthday" twice.

Hodge will coach No. 700 Saturday

Lady Rockets basketball coach Shannon Hodge has been coaching the Lady Rockets for 27 seasons.

Saturday night she will lead her team against University Heights at Rocket Arena.

When that contest tips off, it will signal the 700th game that Hodge has coached the Crittenden County High School girls' team.

Coach Hodge's Lady Rockets have been among the winningest girls' programs in the region this decade. Since 2010, Crittenden has averaged 15 wins per season.

This decade, Coach Hodge guided the Lady Rockets to three district tournament titles – in 2011, 2017 and 2018 – and in 2011 the Lady Rockets won the school's only basketball regional championship and played in the KHSAA Sweet 16.


Gas station in Livingston County robbed


Kentucky State Police are investigating an armed robbery in Livingston County and are asking for the public's help with finding the culprits.

The robbery occurred at about 12:10 p.m., at the BP gas station off Exit 31 of Interstate 24 near Grand Rivers. 

Troopers viewed video surveillance at the store and observed an unknown white male enter the gas station, robbing the store at knife point. The male subject is described as heavyset with dark hair and dark facial hair. He was wearing an orange shirt under a black jacket, a black and orange toboggan with a surgical mask covering his face. Video surveillance shows the subject leave in a silver SUV, possibly in the company of an unknown female. 

There were no reported injuries as a result of the incident.  

Through their investigation, state police received information that the suspects could be Timothy Smith, 34, and Brittni Smith, 31, of Evansville, Ind. 

They are also believed to have robbed a store in Adair County and stole two vehicles in Taylor County. Police say the suspects could be in a silver Chevrolet Equinox SUV.  

The investigation continues at this time by Trooper John Gordon. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Kentucky State Police Post 1 at 270-856-3721 or anonymously at 1-800-222-5555. Citizens may also report tips anonymously through the KSP app. The app is available for iPhone, iPad and Android applications and can be easily downloaded free of charge through Apple and Google Play stores.

Game warden: Everyone must check deer

With the final segment of blackpowder season opening on Saturday, the county game warden has a message for hunters: No matter who you are, where you live or where you take a deer, bobcat, turkey or other big game animals in Kentucky, those animals must be checked in via the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources Telecheck phone system.

Randy Conway, conservation officer in Crittenden County, says there has been some confusion as to whom must check big game animals on the Telecheck system.

Kentucky's last muzzleloader season, a nine-day segment, opens Saturday and runs through the following weekend, Dec. 22.

“Everyone has to check in their deer,” Conway said, “no matter if you’re a private landowner hunting on your own land or hunting on a management area that doesn’t require a physical game harvest check at its office.”
Conway said the biggest confusion exists on the Big Rivers Wildlife Management Area which skirts the Crittenden-Union County Line. Successful hunters, youth or adult, are not required to check their deer or turkey at the WMA office. However, they must be called and checked in on the KDFWR Telecheck system.

Additionally, Conway said landowners are sometimes unclear on the fact that they, too, must check in all deer harvested by  themselves on their own property. Also, any dependents or tenants living on their property must also check in all deer and turkeys.

The Telecheck’s toll-free number is 800-245-4263. It’s in service 24 hours a day while seasons are open.

All other harvested animals must be telechecked by midnight on the day the animal is ... for the rest of this article see the Dec. 12, 2019 printed edition of The Crittenden Press. You can Click here to subscribe for as little as $2.95 a month and always get the rest of the story.

Bridge scheduled for replacement

Crittenden County has received a pledge of financial assistance from the state to help rebuild a failing bridge on Cave Springs Road in the rural eastern part of the county.

The bridge is located about one-quarter of a mile north of Ky. 120 on a road that serves about a dozen or so homes, and is regularly used by heavy farm equipment and log trucks. The bridge spans Olive Branch, which flows into Wolf Creek.

County Judge-Executive Perry Newcom said modifications were recently made in order to temporarily shore up the bridge and keep it open to traffic.

Additionally, a new sign was hung, warning motorists of the provisional reduced weight limit on the bridge. The limit on the bridge will be 4 tons until it is replaced. Normally, bridges on county roads are rated for ... see the rest of this article in the Dec. 5, 2019 printed edition of The Crittenden Press. You can subscribe here to get the full e-Edition.
