ASHLAND — Buzzard removal plan implemented

ASHLAND If you live near AK Steel Sports Park, the gunshot sounds you may have been hearing the past couple evenings are no cause for alarm.

Kentucky fish and wildlife officials are attempting to get rid of the black-headed buzzards that have been nesting behind the park by using simulated shotgun sounds.

The simulations began Sunday and will continue for the next five days, according to the Ashland Police Department. The simulators will be set off at dusk or shortly after dark each evening. The hope is the noise will cause the birds to migrate elsewhere.

2 hurt in Carter crash

GRAYSON Two Elliott County residents were injured Monday morning in a two-vehicle accident on Ky. 7 in Carter County.

The wreck occurred about 8:10 a.m. about a mile from the Ellott-Carter County line, Kentucky State Police at Ashland said.

According to the KSP, Joel Dearmon, 33, of Ashland, was southbound on Ky. 7 when his 2004 Chevrolet van veered into the northbound lane and collided with a 2009 Chrysler driven Alfred Brown, 73, of Sandy Hook.

Brown and a passenger, Vivian Brown, 68, both were transported to Cabell Huntington Hospital for what the KSP said were non-life-threatening injuries. Dearmon refused medical treatment at the scene.

Seat belts were in use by the occupants of both vehicles, the KSP said.
