OLIVE HILL — Woman killed in Carter accident

OLIVE HILL - A Lexington woman died Sunday after her car wrecked on I-64 in Carter County, according to Kentucky State Police.

The accident happened around 7:30 p.m. near the Carter-Rowan county line when 53-year-old Myong S. Tran, who was traveling east, lost control of her car and swerved into the median, according to police. She overcorrected and swerved back across the road and hit the embankment.

Tran was thrown from the car. She was taken to St. Claire Regional Medical Center in Morehead and then to the University of Kentucky Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

Tran was not wearing a seat belt.

Multiple meth labs discovered

CANNONSBURG - Deputies found 51 portable meth labs at a Cannonsburg residence, according to the Boyd County Sheriff’s Department.

The one-step labs were found at a mobile home on Martin V Drive, according to deputies.

Deputies found 11 of the labs when they went to the mobile home to investigate a domestic violence complaint early Sunday, and at about 6 p.m. Sunday they returned and found 40 more.

Deputies are seeking indictments of three in connection with the labs; the three were found close to the trailer park.

‘Marriage Savers’ coming to area

MOREHEAD - The Family Foundation is bringing Mike McManus of “Marriage Savers” for a 10-city tour of Kentucky the first week of October to give a fresh vision of marriage to pastors and laity on the frontline of ministry. He will address the opportunity to create Community Marriage Covenants among church leaders to help better equip new couples getting married as well as to help strengthen and renew existing marriages.

 The area meeting will be from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Sept. 30 at First Church of God at 576 Sunset Drive in Morehead.

McManus is the author of numerous books on strengthening marriages and reducing divorce while highlighting the myths that suggest cohabitation is a model or a preparation for marriage. He has also written a weekly syndicated column since 1981 titled “Ethics and Religion.” His counsel for preparing, building and restoring marriages has proven successful everywhere it has been implemented — in more than 200 communities and 10,000 churches nationwide.

Each free event will be about two hours long and will include a 60-minute presentation and a time of Q&A and interaction.

For more information, call (859) 255-5400.
