Trick or treat hours will find temps dropping through the 30s with gusty winds and some rain and snow filling the air. Wraparound band of snow moves in Friday night into Saturday morning across central and eastern Kentucky. That's the one that could drop some light accumulations on grassy areas and elevated surfaces.
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Two private construction companies have been cited following the death of a worker at a dormitory being built at the University of Kentucky.
The Lexington Herald-Leader said state officials found a "serious" violation of safety laws in the Feb. 19 death of 24-year-old Isaias Cabrera Ramos of North Carolina.
State officials proposed a $6,300 penalty for Messer Construction Co. and a $4,900 penalty for subcontractor Joseph W. Bates Construction.
Messer spokeswoman Jessie Folmar said company officials will meet with state officials before deciding whether to appeal. Folmar told the newspaper in an email that safety is the Cincinnati-based company's top priority.
Ramos was wearing a hard hat but suffered traumatic head injury when a piece of plywood blew off the roof of Haggin Hall in 30 mph winds and fell 60 feet.
