First family rolls up their sleeves for flu shots

By Crystal Staley/Sebastian Kitchen

Frankfort, KY - To bring greater awareness to the important protections vaccines provide, Gov. Andy Beshear, First Lady Britainy Beshear and their children, Will, 11, and Lila, 10, rolled up their sleeves and received flu shots this week at the Capitol.

Lt. Gov. Jacqueline Coleman, commissioner of the Department for Public Health Dr. Steven Stack and American Sign Language interpreter Virginia Moore joined the Beshears on Thursday to receive a vaccination against the seasonal flu.

"Britainy and I, and our kids, receive a flu shot each year at this time, because we know it is the single most effective way to prevent the flu," Gov. Beshear said. "The availability and affordability of the vaccine make it easier than ever to protect yourself and your family, which is especially important this year as we continue to battle COVID-19."

The Governor emphasized the importance of getting a flu shot this year to blunt the potential for what the medical community fears could be a "twindemic" if seasonal flu outbreaks overwhelm health care systems already stretched thin by COVID-19.

Safety, sensitivity, security subject of first CU chapel

By Scarlett Birge, student news writer,
Office of University Communications

CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. - Dr. Michael V. Carter, president of Campbellsville University, said the 115th year of CU is a quest for "safety, sensitivity and security," amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We all need each other during this time," he said. Carter said the last six months had appeared to put us all "in a state of slumber" while being shut down and doing everything to contain the virus. Carter said urging everyone on campus to be responsible means that "we all wake up out of this state of slumber."

DOI can review, overturn medical insurance decisions

By Sherelle Roberts Pierre

Frankfort, KY - Kentuckians who disagree with decisions made by their health insurance carrier about the necessity of services, treatments or medication can seek to have an outside expert review that decision, and possibly have it overturned, through a program at the Department of Insurance.

Since 2000, Kentucky law gives individuals who are covered by fully insured health benefit plans the right to have an independent, medical review to assess whether the company's denial of a specific claim or requested service or treatment is justified. Reviews through DOI's Independent External Review Program are available when a recommended service or treatment is denied on the basis that it does not meet the insurer's requirements for medical necessity.

Former Columbia UMC pastor married Johnny and June

2020-09-19 - Franklin, KY - Photo from keepsakes of Ann Heskamp Curtis.
Columbia native Ann Curtis writes, "After seeing Doug Beard’s beautiful photo essay of the Columbia United Methodist Church and the wall of its former pastors, I recalled that at least one of those pastors had a later claim to fame. Reverend Leslie Chapman, pastor of CUMC in the 1950s, officiated at the wedding of Johnny Cash and June Carter. They were married in the Methodist Church in Franklin, Ky in 1968."
The local newspaper, the Franklin Favorite, reported the event with the note that the night before the wedding the couple had won a Grammy award for their song, "Jackson".

KYTC: Illegally placed signs are being removed

By Wes Watt

Bowling Green, KY - Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) crews are removing illegally placed items along state maintained right of way areas. Political candidates, residents, business operators and property owners along US and KY routes are reminded no signage is allowed on right of way other than official highway signs and items approved through a permit process.

In particular, as we approach the November election, campaign signs must be placed beyond right of way limits. Right of way fence is included with this restriction. On roads with a right of way fence, no signs may be attached. Final mowing cycles of the growing season are in full swing across the district. Crews will not mow around illegally placed items. They will be removed. Items placed on right of way areas create significant delays for our mowing crews and are potential hazards for mowing operators and passing motorists.

Constitution Day good day to complete your 2020 Census

Article I, Section II of the Constitution calls for an “actual Enumeration” to be “made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct.” The first “Enumeration” took place in 1790, and has been conducted every 10 years since.

By Dr. Steve Dillingham, Director

Two hundred and thirty years ago, by foot and on horseback, U.S. Marshals visited every single household across our young nation. During that first census, Congress expected to find about 2 million people living in the country. When the results came back in 1793, the population exceeded 3.9 million.

The Constitution had set the number of Representatives at 65 from 1787. The first apportionment, based on the 1790 census, resulted in an increase to 105 members.

Robyn Ogden asks her mom to take her to the City park on Fairgrounds Street that she calls the “blue park."

Robyn will be 5 in February and will be starting preschool this fall. She is the daughter of Rachel Sheckles and Chad Ogden. Her Columbia grandparents are Roy and Christine Rademacher.

Vigil for Vicki tonight, 17 Sept 2020 at 7pmCT

From Cayce Davenport

Today, the students and staff of Adair County Schools are mourning the loss of one of their own. Vicki Leibeck-Owsley passed away overnight. She was a fierce friend, a compassionate role model, a selfless strong woman, and a kind soul.

Vicki believed in the power of words, and today we find ourselves without words to express our loss or to offer up as comfort for her family. Her story isn't over. The next chapters have already been drafted through the many lives she has touched. Let's pay her tribute and lift up prayers for her family.

A vigil for Vicki will be held tonight, Thursday, September 17, 2020, at the Circle drive and grassy lawn at ACHS at 7pmCT. There will be hand sanitizing stations and extra masks on hand - parking lots will be open - student lot, teacher lot, and the lot behind the gym. Do not park in the circle drive.
