The opening date has been announced for this year's Todd County Farmer's Market.
Todd County Health Department Director Jenn Harris says this year's Farmer's Market will begin May 15th.
It is the second year of the Todd County Farmers Market, which began after a study showed a need for better access to fruits and vegetables.
There are a few changes in this year's market. Vendors will no longer have to arrive by 3 p.m., though they are still encouraged to be there as early as possible. Stalls will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis and there will be no “floor price” for vendors this year, meaning vendors won't have to come to a common ground on prices.
Anyone interested in being a vendor can call the Todd County Health Department or send a message with your email address to the Todd County Farmer's Market Facebook page and you will be sent an application. All vendors must pay the City of Elkton a $10 produce permit fee.
Barn on Greenville Road in Christian Co.
Severe weather that moved through the Southern Pennyrile Thursday afternoon produced some damage, but it was not widespread and there were no injuries.
The worst of the damage was in Todd County, where a mobile home was blown off its foundation near the intersection of Allegre Road and KY 181. Several trees were blown down and a few barns were damaged in that same area, including one barn owned by Todd Judge-Executive Daryl Greenfield, who said a neighbor’s shed was blown apart and into the road.
A tree was blown onto an unoccupied parked car at a residence near the Butler Road intersection on KY 171 in Todd County and barn and tree damage was also reported near Clifty.
In Christian County, three utility poles were snapped on KY 115 in Pembroke between Mason Lane and Rosedale Cemetery. The roof of a residence was damaged on KY 117 just north of Fort Campbell and the roof of a barn was damaged in the Lacy area.
There were 543 Pennyrile Electric members without power at one time in the Lacy and Fearsville areas.
The severe thunderstorm warnings for Christian and Todd Counties were issued just before 5 o’clock, but Trigg was never under a warning. Other adjoining counties also went under severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings later in the evening.
Fire did severe damage to a Todd County home early this morning.
Todd County Emergency Management Director Tim Pulley says no one was seriously injured in the house fire in the 500 block of Millen Road, which was dispatched to the Elkton Fire Department just before 4 a.m.
Pulley says the fire reportedly began in the living room, but the exact cause wasn't immediately known. The Red Cross was called to assist the family. Millen Road is off KY Highway 104, just south of Elkton.
A high speed pursuit that began in Logan County ended in Elkton Saturday with the arrest of a Todd County man on multiple charges.
The chase began in the Gordonsville area of Logan County, according to Todd County Sheriff's Deputy Tracy White, who said he joined the pursuit on US 68-80 near the county line.
White said 40-year old Robert Miller of Sharon Grove reached speeds of at least 115 mph before turning left onto KY 181 into the city limits of Elkton. Miller lost control of his black 80's model Chevy Camaro and wrecked and allegedly fled on foot.
An Elkton Police officer and Logan County deputy were able to catch him and placed Miller under arrest.
Deputy White says Miller is charged with driving under the influence of methamphetamine, fleeing police, resisting arrest, speeding, criminal mischief and more charges could be added.
Drug paraphernalia was allegedly found during the investigation. Miller was lodged in the Logan County Jail.
The woman injured in a two-vehicle wreck in southern Todd County Friday evening has been identified.
Todd County Sheriff’s Deputy Tracy White says 83-year old Nona Penick of Allensville was taken by ambulance to Gateway Medical Center, following the accident at the intersection of U.S. 79 and Allensville Road.
Ms. Penick had been westbound on KY 102 and failed to yield the right of way at the intersection and was struck by a vehicle operated by 33-year old Benjamin Marshall of Frankfort, according to Deputy Patrick Turner.
Her injuries were not thought to be life-threatening and Marshall was not hurt.
