Another band of snow will move into the region tonight. That plus temperatures into the lower 20s will create slick spots across the mountains. Additional accumulation of up to a half inch is possible in the valleys, while up to an additional inch is possible on the ridges. While significant snow is not expected, we have issued a Severe Weather Alert Day to keep you informed on possible negative impacts to travel through Tuesday afternoon.
BURLINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky officials agreed they had to rid their state of a pain pill abuse scourge that had reached epidemic levels. They cracked down on the prescribers, set up an electronic system to track pills and clogged up a pipeline that had roots in Florida.
As those efforts began paying off and pills weren't as easily had, law enforcement came across a surprising discovery - they busted more people for a drug that had long ago faded into the background. That drug is heroin.
Law enforcement officials in Kentucky and Ohio said the heroin, which is generally snorted or injected in powder form, is imported into the United States from Mexico and Central America. It's first going to Illinois, Michigan and Ohio, then migrating across the Ohio River into Kentucky.
