No suspects are listed on the report.
A Madisonville man was arrested Tuesday on sexual abuse charges against a small child.
A news release from the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office only says an investigation and interview of 49-year old Mark McFarland of Madisonville turned up enough evidence to arrest him and charge him with first degree sexual abuse.
Police say the alleged victim is a six-year old girl. He is lodged in the Hopkins County Jail.
The American Red Cross says recent severe weather in other area of the country have caused an even greater shortage of blood supplies.
A news release from the regional Red Cross office says the number of blood donors is up, but supply is still low after severe storms caused damage and injuries in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic States.
Officials say there will be blood drives on Fort Campbell Friday from 10 until 3 at Byrd Health Clinic and from 10 until 3 July 20th at the Post Exchange.
The Fourth of July has already come and gone, but residents of Todd County can once again shoot fireworks.
Todd County Fiscal Court Clerk Misty Glover says Judge-Executive Darryl Greenfield released the ban on shooting fireworks, but the ban on outdoor burning continues.
Ms. Glover says the recent rainfall allowed the Judge to loosen the fireworks restriction that was added at the height of the drought.
Elkton Mayor Nancy Camp speaks at the old courthouse earlier this year
The Historic Todd County Courthouse on the Elkton Square has primarily served as a welcome center in recent years and the entity that staffs the building is likely changing.
The City of Elkton had ensured the doors were open during business hours, but Mayor Nancy Camp asked for and received the blessing of City Council Monday night to transfer that responsibility to the Todd County Community Alliance.
The Todd County Community Alliance is like a chamber of commerce and Mayor Camp says that type of agency is who should be running a welcome center.
Elkton City Clerk Laura Brock also serves as membership director in the Alliance and says that board is aware of the change.
