West Marshall Fire completes annexation

West Marshall Fire

The West Marshall Fire Department has now annexed the Pioneer Fire District, offering potential cost savings on insurance to more than 400 local homeowners in the area. West Marshall Fire Chief Brian Andrus reports the county has acknowledged receipt of the petition and the process is complete and due to be effective as of March 1. The District will begin responding to calls for service in April when Pioneer's current contract with the city of Benton expires. The West Marshall Fire District encompasses 62 square miles in the west and south areas of Marshall County and offers residents an impressive roster of 33 firemen, 12 trucks and three stations. West Marshall has purchased land at 301 Jackson School Road where they will build a new sub-station. (West Marshall Fire Department; Updated: 11:06 am, Friday)

Kentucky highway fatalities rise in '14

Highway fatalities in Kentucky increased in 2014 after a record low in 2013. Kentucky Office of Highway Safety preliminary figures from a January 16 report indicate 667 people lost their lives on Kentucky roadways last year, up from 638 in 2013. However, it was the second lowest total since 1949, when 573 fatalities were recorded. KOHS Executive Director Bill Bell said there were some encouraging trends in 2014 on which to build. "Because more motorists took responsibility for their driving habits, there were 81 days last year in which no one lost a loved one on our roadways, which is up from 75 days in 2013," Bell said.
