There may be some people in the Purdy/Little Cake area who oversleep this morning. Power was knocked out when a utility pole was hit by the car involved in the fatal accident which occurred around 7pmCT last night. Power went off for the Little Cake/Purdy area for several hours. When I tried to get to the Big Dawg, FM 99.9 FM transmitter at Little Cake, at around midnight, power was still off.

The Big Dawg was off the air until emergency generators were activated - and after a battery backup was installed in the main studio at 101 E Main, Campbellsville, KY.

The accident occurred near the Columbia/Adair County Utilities District Shepherd Water Tower. The Big Dawg is operating normally now. - Larry Smith

PS: Tell CM viewers to be careful on morning commutes. Fog is a factor, especially around Green River Lake. - - Larry SMith
