News Outlook July 22, 2021 - 5 CAVE RUN AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS By Kathleen Perry Even though this happened some thirty-five to forty years ago, this tale is timeless! It was breaking daylight that beautiful fall morning with the multi-col— ored trees just beginning to take shape around us, and as the last strains of the night birds soothing lulla- bies reached .us, we eased the boat into the cove, shut off the motor and quickly and quietly dropped our first lines into the waters of Cave Run Lake. I sat in awe and watched as the sun eased up over the far ridge and Fleming county Magistrate Sentenced to 66 Months tor Bron Insurance Fraud and Tax fraud Christopher G. Hickerson, 47, a Fleming County Mag- istrate and farmer, was sen- tenced to 66 months in feder- al prison Wednesday, by US. District Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove, for conspiracy to commit crop insurance fraud and tax fraud. The evidence presented established that, from 2009 until 2016, Hickerson filed false claims of loss on his Multi-Peril Crop Insurance (“MPCI”) policies. MPCI policies are federally spon- sored cro o insurance olicies, Menifee Housing Associates Section 8 Based on 30% of income.

The brilliant reds, oranges and yellows of the hillsides were re- flected in the glistening blue-green waters of the lake and I nearly lost my breath from trying'to take it all in at once. Then it was as if a timer had been clicked on, signaling quiet time. A hush fell over the lake, and a deep Settled peace took hold as we witnessed a new day being born. The calm was short-lived how- ever; when with no warn- ing my fishing pole took a nose dive and was nearly jerked from my hands by some great underwater which are funded through taxpayer money. In his plea agreement, Hickerson admit- ted to committing crop insur- ance fraud with the assistance of coconspirators Roger Wil- son, former owner of Clay’s Tobacco Warehouse, and Debra Muse, former em- ployee at Clay’s Tobacco Warehouse, by obtaining fake Clay’s Tobacco Warehouse sales receipts and grading reports that made it appear as though he produced and sold poor quality tobacco, and then submitting those on his claims of loss. Testimony during a sentencing hearing revealed that Hickerson em- , ployed other schemes to de- fraud the federal crop insur- ance program, including by placing crop insurance poli- cies in his family member and friends’ names covering his own crop. As a result, Hick- erson fraudulently caused a loss of nearly $1 million to the taxpayer-funded insurance program.
