  • KSP Offers Trick or Treating Safety Tips

    Little ghouls and goblins will be running in the streets tonight to trick-or-treat and Kentucky State Police want to make sure your kids stay safe.

    KSP Lt. David Jude says the agency wants the children to have a fun but safe trick or treating experience.

    “Halloween is traditionally a time for children to have fun, but most often it is the children who can be injured by situations that are avoidable,” says Jude. “Be sure your child’s costume does not obstruct their vision and is not so cumbersome that they can trip over it.”

  • Tips for staying safe this Halloween include avoiding decorative contact lenses

    Though ghouls and goblins willbe out in full force, there will be other, unexpected dangers lurking on Halloween, some before kids even leave the house.

    But the ball fell off Smith’s fingertips and the Chargers ran out the clock for a 40-36 win, Friday.

North Oldham got past the Lady Cougars 2-0, but if it’s to advance further in the tournament at Bellarmine’s Knights Hall, there can’t be any letting off the throttle.
