The Christian County Grand Jury indicted 15 people Friday including the wife of a Fort Campbell soldier and her alleged accomplice for murder.
25-year old Jessie Lucille Gosyln of Fort Campbell and 24-year old Jarred Tabor Long of Grand Junction, Colorado are both charged with murder for the February 3rd fatal shooting of Gosyln’s husband, 28-year old Vincent Goslyn jr. whose lifeless body was found by authorities in the 400 block of Fidelio Road.
Court records indicate that Jessie Goslyn admitted to police that she willingly drove her husband to a place, despite knowing he would allegedly be harmed by Long.
Both remain lodged in the Christian County Jail.
The 2012 Kentucky Derby is just around the corner and Hopkinsville officials are asking local citizens to attend the annual Pennyrile Area Kentucky Colonel Breakfast next month to jump start the festivities.
Paula Knight says this year’s breakfast menu will feature southern delights like country ham and biscuits and so much more.
Knight says local citizens should attend the breakfast on May 5th to show their Kentucky pride and have fellowship with other residents.
Knight says attendance to the breakfast has decreased over the years and hopes this year’s attendance will surpass previous years since the event has become an annual tradition, much like the Kentucky Derby for families to attend.
The Pennyrile Area Kentucky Colonel Breakfast will be held at Pioneers and tickets can be purchased for $10 at James Knight Appliance located on 2418 Fort Campbell Boulevard.

Tax day has come and gone, but officials in Todd County are urging those who failed to pay their property taxes to make it right as soon as possible.
Todd County Attorney Mac Johns told those present at this morning’s Fiscal Court meeting that 361 property tax bills are delinquent. Sheriff Joey Johnson said those bills equated to 91-thousand dollars in all, though only a fraction of that amount was due to county government.
Judge-Executive Darryl Greenfield says the county is more than willing to work with someone on a payment plan—but those delinquent need to contact the county attorney’s office as soon as possible.
Judge Greenfield says if the delinquent payers don’t make any efforts to pay their bills, the county will ultimately turn it over to a collection agency which will assess hefty fees and interest.
Todd County Treasurer Tammy Robertson said the county’s budget continues to look good, with only one transfer needed so far this fiscal year. Fiscal Court will have a special-called meeting Tuesday evening at 7 to look over Judge Greenfield’s proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year.
