With the worsening economy, an increasing number of Kentuckians are being victimized by fraudulent, unsolicited business offers commonly originating outside the United States. County attorneys throughout Kentucky are reporting an upswing in this type of activity. In one case, an elderly victim was defrauded of $1.1 million by a Canadian source before the scam was discovered and stopped.
The most common of these scams begins with the receipt of an unsolicited cashiers’ check in the mail.

I notified Rep. Brad Montell in 2008, concerning loopholes I found in KRS 132.023 and .017. Better known as House Bill 44. These loopholes were directly related to the operation of any charter government. The loopholes pose an enormous threat to taxpayer's rights, afforded in House Bill 44. Montell and I quietly tried to resolve the threats in the 2009 legislative assembly, however, opposition was found. Who? Why?
The American Cancer Society and the Spencer County Relay for Life 2009 committee would like to thank the entire community for their great contributions to this year's event. Because of your efforts through donations, caring deeds and involvement this experience was once again successful. Our total was close to $20,000. Our totals were down a bit but not our spirits. We will continue to fight against cancer in anyway we can. Relay celebrated its survivors and remembered those who lost their battle.
