Woman, 19, killed in crash near Walton

WALTON - A 19-year-old woman died in a two-car accident on U.S. 25 two miles south of here Tuesday morning.

Jessica Warman of Demossville was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, which occurred about 8 a.m. in the 14000 block of Dixie Highway, according to the Kenton County Police Department.

Thomas Handorf, 64, of Warsaw, was driving south in a 2004 Cadillac when his vehicle traveled left of center and struck a northbound 1994 Pontiac Grand Am being driven by Warman, according to police.

Handorf was taken by ambulance to St. Luke Hospital in Florence. His condition was not available.

The accident remains under investigation by the Kenton County Police Department.

Fort Wright unlikely to seek road tax this fall

FORT WRIGHT - A tax to build and repair streets and sewers and maintain sidewalks apparently will not be resurrected this fall.

At a recent budget meeting, Fort Wright City Council discussed waiting a couple of years before proposing another infrastructure tax.

In November 2002, Fort Wright voters narrowly rejected a property tax increase to build, maintain and repair streets, sidewalks, curbs, gutters and storm sewer catch basins.

By 2006, council should have a better idea of how much tax revenue new development in the city will generate.

Crall named to Fletcher cabinet

FRANKFORT - Gov. Ernie Fletcher Tuesday appointed state Rep. Brian Crall as deputy secretary of his Executive Cabinet. Crall, R-Owensboro, has served in the House since 1995. He will resign from his seat Friday to take the new job, effective Monday.
