Escapee faces judge

Harley David Smith

Harley David Smith

Harley D. Smith, 29, of Frankfort, held his head high and spoke with confidence as he faced Judge Thomas Jensen in circuit court Friday. Smith faced three separate cases, including one with three counts of theft and another, his most recent case, second degree escape and first degree persistent felony offender.

Due to the many cases Smith faces, and his nearly two month absence from court while on the run, there was some confusion as to who would act as Smith’s representation. Public Advocate Attorney Kara Ottis was previously been assigned to Smith’s case. It was determined that she would more than likely take the case back once she returns from a leave of absence. In the meantime, however, Public Defense Attorney Halley Vallance would stand in.

City School’s plan to make up snow days

In light of the recent snowstorm, Barbourville Independent Schools have some snow days to make up.

As of Friday, Barbourville was two days shy of the 170 educational days required by the state. The 2015-2016 calendar was amended at the February meeting, to use the first week of the 2016 Spring Break as make-up days. It was approved that March 14 and 15 would be used to make up the two missing days. The board also authorized that March 16, 17 and 18 could be used for additional make-up days. This will reserve at least one full week for spring break.
