A2 THE MESSENGER, Saturday, November 30, 201 3 LOCALREGIONSTATE KSP charge 3 Dawson Springs residents for drugs Black Friday bargain shopping disorderly conduct. After speaking with Baldwin, troopers went to the home on Kenlee Drive, located off Wilbur Wilson Road, and discovered the body of Long in the home of her father, Stanley Long. The Trimble County Coroner's officer was summoned and pronounced Long dead at the scene. The remains were removed to the State Medical Examiner's office in Louisville where an autopsy to determine cause of death was scheduled Thursday. According to Arterburn, Angela Long's residence was located on U.S.

42W in Pendleton. Baldwin, 25, was said to be from Louisville but had spent enough time in Trimble County that the KSP referred to him as "a Trimble County man." Baldwin was booked into the Carroll County Detention Center in Carrollton at 7:54 a.m. Wednesday, according to CCDC records. Questioning of the suspect continued through the day, Arterburn said late Wednesday afternoon. Baldwin was eventually charged with the murder of Long Wednesday evening.

No motive for the crime has been determined. KSP Detective Tim Moore is leading the investigation.

High school assault smacks of 'knockout game' BY JEFF D'ALLESIO NEWS ENTERPRISE A North Hardin High School student was arrested Tuesday and charged with assault for throwing a punch that resembled the "knockout game" that recently has drawn national attention. Radclif police were made aware of the incident by school officials. The attack also was recorded on a cellphone and police were able to see the video. Police spokesman Bryce Shumate confirmed the incident happened on school grounds and said from what he understands, the assault was unprovoked. It occurred in a school classroom, although police and school officials weren't certain when it happened.

"From what I understand, the one student was sitting in a chair and he was hit and knocked out of the chair," Shumate said. "According to our officer, the person was not expecting to be hit. It wasn't a fight or a scuffle." According to an report, the "knockout game," as it has been called, works like this: Teens punch a stranger, hoping to send the victim into unconsciousness with a single blow, generally while being filmed for posting on social media. The North Hardin student accused of delivering the blow is a male juvenile and has been charged with fourth-degree assault. Shumate said the blow caused minor injury and the boy who was hit was not taken from school to seek treatment.

What school district punishment the attacker faces is unclear. Hardin County Schools is in the early stages of its own investigation, spokesman John Wright said Wednesday. He said the district does not discuss student discipline and said he was just made aware of the incident. "There's an investigation that we need to get through and get that complete," he said. "We'll make proper punishment per district policy." Students can be suspended up to 20 days for a single incident, according to school policy.

Shumate said the recording, which he said has gone viral, indicates an assault took place. He also said juveniles charged with fourth-degree assault usually are released into the custody of their parents.

This is a strong step toward energizing that sector of our economy, while providing economic stability and investment for the Paducah community. "While negotiations are yet to come and a great deal of work remains, I am cautiously optimistic regarding this new effort. As I stressed during my meeting with Secretary Moniz earlier in the summer, the companies that are ready and willing to create economic opportunities at the site need timely answers, and so do our valued and skilled workers in Paducah. I deeply appreciate that DOE heeded my recommendation to speed up the decision making process, and announced this step today a month ahead of their original schedule.

I have also emphasized the importance of keeping the tails in Paducah for future economic growth and jobs, and I will continue to stress the necessity of quick action on site cleanup and other decisions regarding the area's viability.
