Trigg County Sheriff Ray Burnam is hosting another community meeting Thursday, January 19th in Cerulean.
Sheriff Burnam said past meetings have been in response to problems with theft or other crimes, but the 6pm meeting at the Cerulean Springs Market Restaurant will be a “pro-active” effort.
He says the meeting will focus on how residents can look out for their neighbors, including writing down the license plate number of any suspicious vehicles.
Sheriff Burnam says everyone is invited to the January 19th meeting at Cerulean Springs Market Restaurant.
The Christian County Animal Shelter has found a new way to expand its outreach to the community.
Director Irene Grace recently started a Christian County Animal Shelter Facebook page, which she says has had a very positive response and has helped homeless animals find homes.
Ms. Grace says she posts photos of animals that have been around for a while in hopes that one of the hundreds of Facebook “fans” will find the face irresistible.

A rear-end collision on the Pennyrile Parkway last night injured two.

Clarksville police investigated a robbery outside of Governors’ Square Mall from last night.
Officers were called to the rear entrance near Old Navy around 7:30 after a mall employee was walking back to her vehicle and heard footsteps behind her. The victim said she turned around and saw a suspect with his hands up as if he had a handgun.
She said it was obvious he was not armed and did not comply when he demanded her purse. The perpetrator then grabbed her purse and pulled it away in a violent manner, throwing her to the ground.
The suspect then got into a white vehicle and drove away.
A Hopkinsville truck driver, a California man and Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement Officer went to the hospital after a wreck in Ohio County yesterday.
A story in the Evansville Courier Press says Officer Timothy Blakenship had stopped trucker Fred Ford of California around 9:30am and Ford was standing outside of this truck, while Blakenship was in the cruiser.
41-year old Robert Thomas of Hopkinsville was eastbound on the Western Kentucky Parkway and, for an unknown reason, sideswiped the cruiser and tractor-trailer. Thomas’ tractor-trailer also struck Ford, who was still on foot.
Ford and Thomas were taken to Ohio County Hospital in Hartford for non-life-threatening injuries, while Officer Blakenship was treated and released at Owensboro Health Systems. Thomas was cited for failure to yield to an emergency vehicle and a registration offense.
