Coming in Wednesday's CJ

Somerset — Here are the stories we are following for the Wednesday, Aug. 21, edition:

• The name of an official of a Pulaski County recycling firm popped up as a possible candidate for mayor of Somerset after a story in the Commonwealth Journal last week about a mystery candidate for the city’s top office.

 Alan Keck is no longer a mystery. The vice president and general manager of Somerset Recycling Services Inc., quickly confirmed that he and his wife are “prayerfully considering” his entering the race for mayor.

• Pulaski County High School athletic director Randy Elmore passed away on Tuesday morning after a lengthy battle with cancer.

• Lawyers for a local sheriff’s deputy facing accusations of violating victims’ civil rights through use of excessive force are asking that video evidence to be used by prosecutors be sealed from public view.

Attorney Brandon W. Marshall on Tuesday filed the memorandum supporting the defense team’s request that two video files, expected to show 404(b) evidence — or evidence of prior similar behavior — against Pulaski County Sheriff’s Deputy Steven Molen be either sealed from public view entirely or released under restrictions.

• Terry Holliday knows how to connect with today’s youth: Just mention Twitter.

The Commissioner of Education in Kentucky drew big laughs from the assembly of Pulaski County High School students on Tuesday when he told them he’d “tweet” a picture of the sign behind him, one proclaiming academic success for the school, to others who might think it’s not possible for themselves.
