The Kentucky State Police are warning cell phone users about “The One-Ring Scam”.
In this scam, a computer from outside the United States calls a number, lets it ring and then hangs up. If the cell phone user returns the call, he or she may find an additional charge on their next bill. According to the Kentucky State Police, some victims have been charged as much as $20 for the call and up to $9 for each additional minute.
Most Kentuckians favor giving local communities the option to raise their own sales tax — for a limited time to pay for specific projects such as roads or libraries, according to the latest Bluegrass Poll.
With another win notched in their belt, the Marion County Lady Knights opened their second double-header of the week on Feb. 8. For the second time this season, the Lady Knights defeated their opponent, the Washington County Commanderettes, 54-28.
Later that night, Marion County’s boys team picked up its fifth consecutive win by defeating the Commanders (2-16) by 37 points.
Saturday’s win marks the eighth consecutive season that the Lady Knights have swept their neighboring rival.
