Driving back to Georgetown from Barren River on Labor Day our RV caught on fire at the Munfordville exit. Several kind hearted people stopped to help including the Munfordville police chief Greg Atwell who called the only available towing service. After the fire was out Billy Buck Minton owner of Stanton's Garage towed the RV to his gravel lot 4 tenths of a mile away making a total round trip of 8 tenths of a mile. My husband told him that he had someone that would pick it up the next day. We were very shaken by the whole ordeal and didn't realize till we were almost home that we didn't get any sort of paperwork nor did we get his business card. It turned out that the man my husband was sending after the RV was on vacation and we couldn't afford to pay anyone else. By the time we were able to pick it up 10 days later Billy Buck demanded $1100.00 in cash.$350.00 for towing it 4 tenths of a mile and $75.00 a day to store it on a gravel junk yard lot.

Put your story in the local paper. If this is what he did let people know what kind of A-Hole he is and maybe that will put a hurting in his pocket. Sorry you were treated like that. If he did what you say he is a disgrace to this community and any community he may live.

Oh believe me I'm just getting started. I took out a 6 month subscription in the local news paper and am working on my article, ADs, editorials, etc. I am still recovering from breast cancer so I have plenty of time on my hands to dedicate to this slimy individual. I understand he is running unopposed for constable on the democrat ticket. I'm interested in finding a well loved and respected republican candidate to run against him. There's only one week left to get on the ballot so it may not happen this election but I won't ever forget him.

I called the three top towing companies in Lexington and gave them the scenario if they towed a 27 ft. RV from 4 tenths of a mile to their lot and stored it for 10 days and got the following quotes. These are all LEGITIMATE businesses listed with Secretary of State.
Bluegrass Towing-$125.00 towing $300.00 storage @$30.per day TOTAL-$425.00
Metro Towing-$75.00 towing $150.00 total for 10 days TOTAL-$225.00
CTS-$300. for towing and $300. storage @$30.per day Total-$600.00
Don't let this guy get away with ripping people off!!!

We spent a few hours there yesterday when we drove back to pay the ransom and met some nice people so I would rather fight to help them rid their town of the trash that tarnishes it.
sorry

Sorry you had such a bad experience. There is a good old boy network here in hart county. he is running for office though so you might try paying for an ad, maybe they will run it but I doubt it. You could also write to the News Enterprise and the Glasgow daily times, you will have better luck getting them to tell the truth.

don't know if any of those papers would help or allow your article to be printed. Barren, Butler, Hart, Metcalfe and Monroe counties newspapers are under 1 company- Jobe Publishing Inc.

hard to read a true upfront full complete truthful newspaper from here without trying to read other surrounding county papers. top that with the fact most of the community not knowing that the closest newspapers besides their own county are all under 1 publishing company......... you can give a shot but don't be surprised if it doesn't happen.

this wouldnt have happened if atwell had called ALVEYS towing and recovery, and not his good buddy, Buck Minton, a known ripoff artist.
the best

I might be wrong but I didn't get the impression that anyone at the police department liked Buck and Greg Atwell told us he would have called Alveys but the guy was unavailable on Labor Day. I did get a sense when we talked to Sheriff Hensley that he was one of Bucks buddies. I look forward to giving Alveys some free advertisements. Two questions ...are there any Republicans in Hart Co. and what is across from the courthouse?
Correct

you are fightingback247. Hensley and him are big time buddy buddy. The sheriffs son used to work for Buck and still does from time to time.

Whats across the street from the courthouse? The Hart County Sheriffs Office.
