Earl Cox, 86
Earl Cox died in Louisville, Kentucky, on Tuesday, December 13, 2016.
Born in Irvine, Kentucky March 25, 1930, he was the son of Bess (Benton) and Coleman Cox. He grew up in Irvine, attended the University of Kentucky and served in the U. S. Army for two years. After returning home, Earl Ruby offered him a position as a sports writer at The Courier-Journal.
In many ways, Earl was the vanguard of his profession and he was a not-so-quiet warrior for equality. He was the first reporter in Louisville to cover athletes at all-black schools in the 1950s (over the objection of his editor), and he was one of only a few writers in the nation who covered women’s college sports in the 1950s and 1960s. Until he started writing about them, these athletes were ignored. In the early 1970s, Earl hired the Courier’s first female sports writer and he told her male colleagues that if they gave her any grief, he would fire THEM.
Earl’s years began and ended with the Kentucky Derby and he was convinced that if the Courier Sports section looked good the day after Derby, he felt he had been a success that year.
After retiring from the Courier in the mid-80s, Earl began his second career as sports editor at The Voice-Tribune until his retirement in 2013. He was one of the most respected syndicated sports writers in Kentucky. At his peak, he was offered jobs with larger newspapers and national sports magazines, but he loved Kentucky too much to ever leave.
One of the things Earl enjoyed the most was being invited several consecutive years to speak at a Columbia University symposium to a group of other national sports writers. He was the founder and the first president of The Associated Press Sports Editors, a national association. He was a member of the Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame and the Kentucky Athletic Hall of Fame. He was also a member of the Dawahares/Kentucky High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame, and he was the only person inducted into all three. In addition, his colleagues elected him Kentucky Sportswriter of the Year many times.
Earl was humble about his professional accomplishments, but he always was very proud of his family. For 59 years, he was married to the former Carolyn Holliday who he first spied when he was nine-years-old and she was six, as she strolled down the street eating ice cream in downtown Irvine. Carolyn is a retired school teacher and the mother of Earl’s three children, Sarah, Scott and Ellen.
To his children, Earl was the most incredible father in the world. When asked to play catch in the back yard for the millionth time, he said yes, every single time. He taught his children how to keep score in baseball, to cheer for the Big Red Machine, and to root for any team from Kentucky. He was his children’s number one cheerleader, their coach, and their hero. His only vice was that he never missed an opportunity to let you know that Sarah was a doctor, Scott and Ellen were attorneys, and Ellen graduated from Harvard. His children apologize to all who tired of hearing about them.
Earl is survived by his wife, Carolyn, his daughter, Sarah (Dwight Pridham); his son, Scott (Lorie); his daughter, Ellen Call (Jill Johnson); and his grandchildren: Emma and Hallie Pridham, Coleman and Caroline Cox and Virginia and Sophie Call. He is also survived by three step grandchildren: Cameron Sousa, Kate Ashton and Alex Pridham.
He leaves behind countless good friends who he cherished, including Guy Strong, Oscar Combs and Joe B. Hall. He was predeceased by his parents, his five sisters and his brother. Earl’s family would like to thank Dr. Jane Cornett for her kindness as well as the staff of the Episcopal Church Home.
Please join the Cox family for a celebration of Earl’s life Saturday, December 24, at Big Spring Country Club, 5901 Dutchmans Lane, Louisville 40205. The reception/visitation begins at 12 noon followed by a special tribute at 1:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Salvation Army or a charity of choice.
Pearson Funeral Home of Louisville is entrusted with arrangements.

KSP Cram the Cruiser Campaign Collects Record Amount of Food for Needy Families
The Kentucky State Police announced today that its seventh annual Cram the Cruiser food drive gathered nearly 170 tons (339,656 lbs.) of food to help Kentucky families struggling financially during the holiday season.
“Due to the generosity of numerous individuals, businesses, schools, social clubs, scout troops and civic organizations across the state, we have surpassed last year’s campaign by more than 46 tons,” said KSP Commissioner Rick Sanders. “This spirit of giving is a genuine public service that will make a real difference to many families facing difficult times.”
KSP initiated the Cram the Cruiser program in 2010 to assist needy families in its local post and region areas. Since then, the agency has contributed over one million pounds of food to shelters, food banks and churches throughout the Commonwealth.
“The Kentucky State Police continues to maintain the traditions of service the agency was founded on more than 65-years ago,” adds Sanders. “Helping those in need is a fundamental part of our mission and we are grateful to be able to coordinate this effort and the benefits it provides to the communities which support our troopers and officers throughout the year.”
Over the years, the campaign has developed into a friendly competition among Kentucky State Police posts and Commercial Vehicle Enforcement regions. This year, KSP Post 7 in Richmond took top honors with a total of 80,872 pounds of food collected.
Capt. Chris Steward, commander of the post, praised local citizens and businesses for their support of the project. “We can’t thank them enough,” he said. “Their generosity is both impressive and humbling.”
Steward also recognized the hard work of Tpr. Robert Purdy, public affairs officer for the post, who spearheaded the effort, which increased the post’s collections by more than 52,661 pounds from last year’s results.

Boyle County Man Charged with Murder following KSP Investigation
A Boyle County man has been charged with the murder of his daughter, following an investigation by the Kentucky State Police, Richmond Post.
The investigation began on Sunday, November 20, 2016, when KSP Post 7 was contacted by Boyle County DCBS, indicating that a six week old child was admitted to Ephraim McDowell Hospital with life-threatening injuries. The child was transferred to Kentucky Children’s Hospital in Lexington, where she succumbed to her injuries on Tuesday, November 22nd. An autopsy was performed the same day by the State Medical Examiner’s office, in which the preliminary diagnoses indicated that the child died from multiple internal injuries.
Following the initial investigation, Jeffery Spielman, 45 years old of Danville, was arrested and charged with Menacing, Resisting Arrest, Assault 4th Degree Domestic Violence, and Wanton Endangerment 2nd Degree, and was lodged in the Boyle County Detention Center. Spielman bonded out of jail on Thursday, December 8th, and was arrested again on Monday, December 12th for an EPO Violation.
As a result of the ongoing investigation Spielman was charged with Murder today, following the indictment by the Boyle County Grand Jury. He remains in the Boyle County Detention Center.
The ongoing investigation is being conducted by KSP Detective Tye Chavies.
Auditor Mike Harmon Announces Findings of Special Examination of the City of Irvine
Results of examination being referred to Attorney General, Department of Revenue, and IRS
Mike Harmon, Kentucky Auditor of Public Accounts, today announced the results of a special examination of the city of Irvine in Estill County. The findings in the examination will be referred to the Office of Attorney General (OAG), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the Kentucky Department of Revenue to determine whether additional investigation is needed.
"The conclusion we came away with is the city has a poor operating environment in which actions of the mayor, city clerk, and city council members have contributed to numerous questions regarding the city's finances, personnel practices, and other related issues," Auditor Harmon said in releasing the report. "Ongoing disagreements and confusion over who is responsible for supervision of the city's operations created a leadership vacuum, allowing financial decisions to be made without proper review or oversight and increasing the opportunity for waste, fraud or abuse to take place."
The special examination of Irvine, which came about from anonymous complaints to the APA's TIPS line, and a formal request by Irvine Mayor W. J. Noland to conduct a review, contained seven findings:
1. The city of Irvine's operating environment is not conducive to proper management of the city's functions primarily because there is a great deal of friction within the city's management. The city clerk and city council bypassed the mayor's executive authority on key decisions, and in many cases the city was noncompliant with state law and local ordinances on issues like budgetary reports. In addition, the city has no policy manual on administrative and financial activities.
2. There were disagreements between the mayor and city council on who has authority over matters such as the hiring and dismissal of employees, and professional service contractors like external CPA firms.
3. Financial information presented to the city council was minimal, inconsistent and insufficient to allow members to get an accurate understanding of the city's financial situation.
4. The city had numerous errors on tax withholdings for federal and state taxes for employees and contractors, and failed to submit tax payments on time and in the correct amount to the IRS and the Kentucky Department of Revenue. Because of those failures, the city was charged nearly $18,000 in penalties and interest by the IRS and Kentucky Department of Revenue between 2010 and September 2015.
5. Due to a lack of segregation of duties, the city clerk often performed financial duties without any review by another responsible official. For example, the city clerk approved a raise for a city employee without the mayor's signature, and the city clerk opened and closed bank accounts without any review or approval by the mayor.
6. There was a lack of documentation on disbursements from the city's bank accounts. Our office examined 302 transactions from those accounts over a three-year period, and discovered 84 percent, or 253 transactions, lacked information such as invoices or receipts, and no evidence that anyone outside the city clerk had reviewed invoices or determined whether the expenditure was for valid purposes for the city. Auditors also found $5,090 in petty cash withdrawals without any supporting receipts.
7. We also discovered fund transfers to the city's payroll account were not enough to cover the amount paid to employees, leading to bank charges of $3,311 in overdraft fees, returned deposits, fees for providing paper bank statements over and above the electronic statements provided, and other fees charged to correct errors from the deposit of funds. Our office also found an instance where the city had reimbursed a local grocery store after a city employee cashed their payroll check and it bounced because of insufficient funds in the city's account.
8. The city paid bonuses to city employees in violation of Section 3 of the Kentucky Constitution. When the city was advised in a prior audit that bonuses are not permissible, the city changed its methodology and began purchasing and distributing gift cards to employees. We discovered a check written for $1,650 in Fiscal Year 2014 made out to "Christmas Bonus."
9. Auditors identified $4,441 in questionable expenditures for gift cards and gift certificates for employees, flowers and gifts sent to city employees, elected officials and their families, and meal purchases. We also found the city clerk reimbursed herself $504 in July 2015 for four years of meal allowance expenses without any supporting documentation. "Due to the lack of supporting documentation for expenditures and other examples cited in our examination report, we are referring this to the Attorney General's office for them to determine if there has been any criminal wrongdoing within the city of Irvine," added Auditor Harmon. "The amount of missing or incomplete documentation in many areas was concerning enough that we felt it appropriate for law enforcement to take a closer look."
The full examination report is available for review on our website.
Plow blades down! Crews across the state gear up for snow and ice season
Stocked inventory, well-trained crews, new initiatives cement Cabinet’s strategy
The plow blades have been sharpened. The salt domes are full. It’s snow and ice season, and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s (KYTC) maintenance crews are prepared and ready to battle the elements to keep Kentuckians moving this winter.
At the Department of Highways District 5 office, Secretary Greg Thomas and State Highway Engineer Patty Dunaway today discussed the Cabinet’s upcoming snow and ice strategy, including new equipment to assist crews with their snow removal efforts. The Cabinet’s mission for snow and ice removal is to keep traffic moving in a safe manner with an emphasis on maintaining mobility along critical corridors and priority routes.
“Snow and ice season is the Super Bowl of transportation,” said Secretary Thomas. “The Cabinet is committed to providing dependable service to the public, and we are prepared to respond to weather conditions that may affect travel.”
With a strategy reminiscent of combat, nearly 2,000 professional “snowfighters” and support staff have been briefed and trained on how to tackle snow and ice removal. A statewide brigade of trucks and plows stands ready, and a new special teams strike force of eight plows is stationed in Frankfort, positioned for district deployment during major winter weather events. The Cabinet will operate using snow and ice priority route maps during routine snow and ice occurrences.
“We’ve sophisticated our strategy based on the unusually harsh winter hits Kentucky has seen in recent years that have impacted traffic on major roadways and interstates,” said Dunaway. “Our teams are ready to take on the snow and will work to maintain access on heavily travelled priority state routes.”
