Also, the wrapped hay is an alternative to barn storage for reduced weathering loss.

Richmond Man Killed in Lexington by Train

Train

Sixty three year old Tony Burton Litten of Richmond was killed shortly after 1 Friday afternoon September 9th near the intersection of Southland Drive and Eastway Drive, when he was struck by a train. The engineer told police he tried to warn the man lying on the tracks.
Litten died from multiple blunt force trauma injuries. His death is being investigated as an accident, but his family thinks its far more suspicious. The family is afraid theyll never know the exact cause of death because of the extent of Littens injuries
Litten is the second person in a week to be killed by a train in Lexington. On Saturday, Kyle Ginnever, 22, a Bluegrass Community and Technical College student from Northern Kentucky, was hit and killed near the end of Burley Avenue, a dead-end street off Broadway.

Two Killed in Head On Collision

Fatal Crash

Two women are dead after a crash this morning around 1 a.m. involving a semi and an SUV. Traffic was backed up for hours while crews cleared the scene on the I-75 northbound lanes just south of the 87 exit in Richmond.
Police say 30-year-old Christina Blevins and 44-year-old Pennifer McIntosh got on I-75 from a ramp at exit 87 going the wrong way–heading south in the north bound lanes. Seconds later, they crashed head on into the semi, killing them both. The truck driver suffered only minor injuries.
Although both women were roommates and lived in Berea, McIntosh is originally from Jackson, and Blevins is from London.
Bowling Funeral Home in London will be handling arrangements for Christina Blevins, and Deaton Funeral Home in Jackson will be handling arrangements for Pennifer McIntosh.
