I ! A MONTHLY WRAP-UP OF STATE GOVERNMENT HAPPENINGS Photo by Cecil Lawson The Bath County Search and Rescue Squad ranks have grown, and while they may not exactly be human members, they are no less helpful. The local rescue organization has acquired two purebred Bloodhounds to help with search activities. Bloodhounds have the most sensitive noses of any breed of dog and well-Known for their tracking abilities as well as their distinctive howl when they are on the trail. Bath County's own search dogs recently completed training in Knott County. Jim Caudill, above left, is shown will Ellie, an 18 month old who was a shelter dog at the Lexington Humane Society before she found a new life and new purpose as a tracking dog. Hank, center, shown with his handler, James May, is a year old from Texas, with a personality as big as his home state. Dixon, right, with Junior Rescue Squad member Tyus Patton, is about 6 months old and hails from Menifee County. -=Dixon is still in training, jj Is Both Ellie and Hank have both c~p16ted their Level 1 training, which allow them to become dedicated search and rescue dogs, and they will go for their Level 2 train- ing in February 2015. These dogs were purchased solely through funds raised by the Search and Rescue Squad, making them even more important to their handlers. The dogs and their handlers train regularly, 2 to 3 times a weekl in order to stay sharp and ready for whatever happens. While the~ haven't had to be used yet, they were placed on standbl for a recent rescue incident in another county. =We are very proud, and we are glad to help out ot community. This gives us other options in the field,' May said. by Cecil Lawson Last week's general election caused some shifts within Ken- tucky state government but did not change the overall balance of power between Republicans and Democrats as it did for the U. S. Congress. The Republican Party kept a majority in the State Senate, which it has held since 2000. The Senate's current composi- tion is 23 Republicans, 14 Dem- ocrats, and 1 Independent. Democrats continue to hold a 54 - 46 nlajority in the State House, which it has held for over 20 years. In the Kentucky News Group region, Republican David Hale, from Menifee County and a newcomer to state politics, upset Mt. Sterling Democrat Richard Henderson in the 74th District race. Rep: Sannie Overly defeated Republic challenger Dwaine Curran in the 72nd District race. With Sen. Walter "Doc" Blevins set to take on the Row- an County Judge/Executive's seat in January 2015, he will step do~ from his 33 years in state office, and a special called election will be held to fill his Unexpired term until 2016.
