'MOUNTAIN TV' NOT AVAILABLE NOW, BUT ROGERS WORKING ON SOLUTION

HAZARD, Ky. -- There is potential new life to WYMT's attempt to get on satellite.

We are currently in the process of appealing a May decision by the Federal Communication Commission that deemed they would not allow WYMT satellite carriage.

"We respectfully disagree. We do not feel that they considered all the facts in the case. We feel that they ignored some of the facts and the wishes of Eastern Kentucky," said WYMT General Manager Neil Middleton. "You can live in Hazard, Kentucky and see our station from your home, and if you have satellite and not cable you can't get WYMT. That simply doesn't make sense."

On Wednesday Representative Hal Rogers placed wording in a bill that he says funds the FCC that could potentially force the commission's hand in making Dish Network and Direct TV carry WYMT.

"I intend to be sure that language stays in the bill that requires the FCC to pay attention to the language of the plight of local television coverage in the areas so that stations like WYMT can be seen by the people they cover," said 5th District Republican Representative Hal Rogers.

The act he mentions is the Stellar Act of 2014. What he is working to do is have the FCC recognize the language that allows local viewers to receive their local TV station on satellite.

"I inserted language in the bill that funds the FCC, yesterday, to require them to pay more attention to the Stellar Act of 2014 which requires the FCC to pay attention to local television so people can have a preference and get their local tv coverage," said Representative Rogers.

Middleton and Rogers encourage everyone to continue to send letters to the FCC asking for WYMT to be carried on satellite.

Voter Rolls up to date, nearly half million taken off rolls since 2011, message says

 

The State Board of Elections has reached an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice and conservative legal group Judicial Watch in regards to Kentucky's maintenance of voter rolls. Judicial Watch had alleged Kentucky's rolls were out of date.

lison Lundergan Grimes said voters in Kentucky won't have voting rights taken away for simply not voting as long as she's secretary of state. (Kentucky Today/Tom Latek)lison Lundergan Grimes said voters in Kentucky won't have voting rights taken away for simply not voting as long as she's secretary of state. (Kentucky Today/Tom Latek)


The following statement is attributed to Bradford Queen, spokesman for the State Board of Elections:

"...On the heels of the Supreme Court's decision today greenlighting Ohio's "use it or lose it" strategy for the removal of voters, Kentuckians can rest assured Secretary Grimes and the State Board of Elections will not waver in their dedication to protecting Kentuckians' fundamental right to vote.

Under the Grimes administration, unlike others, voters have never been unilaterally kicked off the rolls, especially for simply not voting, and that will not change. Since 2011, Kentucky has properly removed nearly half a million voters.

The DOJ and Judicial Watch both now rightly recognize maintenance of Kentucky's rolls requires proper funding. The General Assembly should be on notice that it cannot continue to underfund Kentucky elections.

This agreement makes it abundantly clear – and the DOJ and Judicial Watch both agree – Kentucky has and will continue to be diligent in ensuring its voter rolls are accurate while protecting voters' rights."

###

For background:

In 2006, the State Board of Elections and Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson faced legal action for unilaterally removing voters from the rolls. The Franklin Circuit Court ordered the purge reversed. Judge Phillip Shepherd ruled that the Kentucky Secretary of State and the State Board of Elections illegally removed more than 8,100 Kentucky voters from the rolls. The Court found that Kentucky may not purge voters based only on inference – not proof – that a vote has moved out of Kentucky.
