Linda Cook: Drivers at south end of Bypass need more warning

Linda Cook writes:
Ed, seems like the accident in question that took a life previously at that location was one involving Mr. Remus Howard. I may be wrong (please check your archives to be sure), but he lived a few days after the wreck but succumbed to injuries stemming from the incident. It's been something like 4 years, give or take a little. Again, I could be completely off base. (You're right, as Bob Barnes and Jay Cox reported earlier).

On a side note, we come and go South 55 from home to work or town and back. After more than one person pulling out in front of me, I try to be more vigilant at that intersection. I agree with Ms. Rarey - there needs to be something more in that area. Before daybreak or after dark can be especially dangerous, even more so if one is not familiar with the traffic flow. - Linda Cook

It's a small world -- that's what photographer Dr. John Hurtgen, dean of the Campbellsville University School of Theology, wrote when he sent this gift of photos of our sons in their businesses in downtown Shelbyville, Ky. At left is Pen Waggener, owner of Sixth & Main Coffeehouse. At right is Tom Waggener, owner of Main Street Bikes. The historic building that houses both businesses is located on the corner that connects Sixth Street to Main Street (Highway 60). Dr. Hurtgen didn't say how he came to be in that part of this small world we live in, but we are grateful he and his wife Pam stopped by, made their acquaintances and shared news of our children. -- Linda and Ed Waggener

Driver died soon after April 27, 2010 collision at KY55 S & Bypass

Comments about: Writer says improvements need to be made at Bypass & S KY 55

Robert Barnes writes:
Remus Howard (Obituary: Remus Curtis Howard, 87, Adair Co., KY) had an accident at the same intersection as today's tragedy, on Tuesday, April 27, 2014, following an accident 11 days earlier (Driver airlifted from Westlake following Bypass collision) --Robert Barnes
Thanks Robert Barnes (and Jay Cox, who also remembered - And thanks, Susan Rarey for advocating improvements at the intersection, which, had they been done earlier, might have prevented these three tragic and possibly unnecessary deaths. - EW

Writer says improvements need to be made at Bypass & S KY 55

Comments re article 69002 Larry Smith Former colleague at WGRK wife are crash victims

Susan Rarey writes:
I work in the Industrial Park and saw the vehicles from this accident as I was returning from lunch. It's upsetting now to know that these two individuals were killed. There was another bad accident a few months ago at this very spot, luckily no one was killed at that time. I believe, however, that shortly after the bypass opened there was a fatal accident here (correct me if I'm wrong*) so now this is the same situation as the intersection of the bypass and Greensburg Rd. before they made improvements. Improvements need to be made at this intersection. More warning signs, bigger stop signs with flashing lights and rumble strips in the eastbound lane. So sad this couple lost their lives and my heart goes out to their family. - Susan Rarey
*Fatal accident at KY 55 S & Bypass? - Does anyone else recall? Please let us know. - CM

Travel Alert: I65 Southbound - Crash/delays likely (Hart County)

By Chris Jessie

ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (3:13CT/4:13ET, Friday, August 8, 2014) - I-65 Southbound is closed at mile point 71, Bonnieville, KY due to a crash.

Closure is expected to last 2+ hours. Motorists should consider exiting I65 at Etown (exit 91), Glendale (exit 86) or Sonora (exit 81) to US 31W and continue south. Due to the increased volume along US 31W, local traffic should use additional caution, especially at intersecting roads.

Another option for motorists traveling through on I65 is exit 91 onto Western Kentucky Parkway to Natcher Parkway and rejoin southbound I65 in Bowling Green.

Exit 91 to Hodgenville and then south on US 31E is another alternate route. Updates will be posted/delivered until the crash scene is clear. - Chris Jessie, the author, is Public Information Officer, KY Transportation Cabinet, District 4, Elizabethtown, KY.

Ralph Roy Waggener: Wants police to monitor cell phone usage

By Ralph Roy Waggener
Personal opinion

We have a Columbia Police Dept, I think, that could monitor the vehicles coming on to the square from Jamestown Street.

This seems to be the place where cars and pickup trucks with drivers with a cell phone at their ear come onto the square without looking left at 40 to 50 miles an hour.

The Kentucky State Police do studies of most dangerous places to drive and patrol these areas more.

A few tickets for speeding wonít hurt anything, and might give the police something to do in there slow time.

Just my opinion for what itís worth. - RALPH ROY WAGGENER

PS: I still am against making Burkesville Street, a single lane and would like to see more dividing white lines on the pavement signage! Ralph R. Waggener

Time to check What's Cooking

Click to today's What's Cooking column for great food

A reminder: If you haven't already done so, check What's Cooking today. There are quite a few wonderful choices in the column today, Friday, national catfish day in Adair County.

There's a bit of good news we want to share without being specific: One of our What's Cooking advertisers had an unexpected record day yesterday. They hurtled through a "70" glass ceiling (on their own, internal scale) to reach a "71." Congratulations! (Don't ask who: We won't tell).

It had been a long time coming. We'll let you guess which one. The restaurant is one of several "enrolled" advertisers in What's Cooking. By enrolled, we mean those which put What's Cooking first, and synergize with the unique advertising opportunity the column provides. With a big thank you to all the enrolled What's Cooking advertisers, - Ed Waggener

Letter: Many walkable and safe downtowns

Walkable Cities: Rockville, MD is example of sensible mixed use projects

Mary Keltner writes:
There are many communities, large and small, in this country that have planned their downtown areas to be walkable and safe. Rockville MD has a public square of mixed use projects and is very sensible. The public library is right on the square, numerous restaurants surround it, and there are apartments both on the square and in the area. There are several farmers market days every week, concerts and family movie nights in warm weather. It is a wonderful place to meet friends, shop, and live. You can go to the library, shop for fresh vegetables and many other items. Parking is available in surrounding lots, so the square is open for people to go and businesses to thrive. - Mary Keltner

Disagrees with BJF for calling thoughtless driver 'gentleman'

Walkable City commentary notes. For, our primary concern in advocating a Walkable Downtown is economic, the viability of the businesses downtown, the economic benefits to be derived. The health and safety factors are important too. This letter is, in part, pro-Walkable City, but asks for pedestrians to take greater responsibility for their own safety. - EW
Billy Joe Fudge: Yesterday, woman almost run down in crosswalk

By Sena Schaefer
Personal commentary

I agree with comments made by Billy Joe Fudge except that he called the truck driver a gentleman.

I think that the driver should have been referred to as a man since a true gentleman would have stopped for anyone in a crosswalk.
