Officials from the Trigg County Crime Stoppers organization were in Hopkinsville this morning to learn how best to get started on the right foot.
Trigg Sheriff’s Sgt. Jimmy Godair and secretary Fay Godair met with Hopkinsville-Christian County Crime Stoppers Coordinator Paul Ray at the Public Safety Building. Sgt. Godair said Trigg Crime Stoppers has gained its non-profit corporation status and has begun receiving much-needed donations to get its feet on the ground.
The Christian County Crime Stoppers organization has been one of the most successful in the state in getting wanted fugitives off the street for several years and Sgt. Godair says Officer Ray’s help has been invaluable in getting started.
Contact the Sheriff’s office at 270-522-6014 for more information or to make a donation to Trigg County Crime Stoppers.
Renovations continue at the Elkton City Park, with some already completed.
Elkton City Clerk Laura Brock says a dollar for dollar matching grant has allowed the city to completely restore the skate park, which is already being utilized.
Ms. Brock says there are more jobs left, including replacing the pavilion and laying down new gravel.
The work will cost the city about 65 thousand dollars, with the federal block grant to fund the other 65 thousand. Officials in Elkton invite people from across the area to come see the renovations as they are completed.

A medical condition may have led to a wreck early this morning that sent a Hopkinsville woman to the hospital.
The incident happened on Canton Pike near the Navaho Trail intersection around 12:20, according to the police report, which says 28-year old Angela North of Hopkinsville was westbound when she ran off the road and hit a guard rail.
Ms. North told Hopkinsville Police she didn’t remember what happened and said she has recently been fighting some medical problems. She was taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center.
