Report: KY students are still behind in reading, math skills

By Aaron Mudd, Bowling Green Daily News

Kentucky has one of the top high school graduation rates in the country, but more than two-thirds of its eighth grade students are not proficient in math and more than half of Kentucky's fourth graders are not on grade level in reading.

Those findings and others were highlighted Monday with the release of the 2019 Kids Count Data Book by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. The annual report uses 16 indicators to rank each state across the four areas of health, education, economic well-being and family and community. Kentucky ranked 34th in the nation in overall child well-being, the report said.

Court hands Bevin victory on Executive Reorganization Power

Frankfort, KY - On June 13, 2019, the Kentucky Supreme Court ruled unanimously in favor of Gov. Matt Bevin's executive power to reorganize boards and commissions.

In affirming the Franklin Circuit Court ruling, the court said, "In sum, on the facts before us, neither KRS 12.028 nor EO 2017-364 constitutes an unconstitutional delegation of legislative power. Nor did the Governor's reorganization of the Education Professional Standards Board, besides the Governor's restructuring of its appeal process, constitute an unconstitutional infringement on the judiciary's power because the temporary reorganization of this board does not impute the judicial power in any way."

In response to the 7-0 ruling, Gov. Bevin issued the following statement:

Medicaid waiver to expand coverage for Substance Use Disorder

A provider webinar is scheduled for Monday, June 17, 2019 at NoonCT/1pmET.

By Christina Dettman/Jordan Rowe

Frankfort, KY - The Commonwealth of Kentucky is set to expand access to treatment and recovery services for individuals with Substance Use Disorder (SUD) through a portion of its 1115 Medicaid demonstration waiver, beginning July 1. This program further amplifies the Commonwealth's overall efforts to fight the opioid crisis, as well as other substance addictions.

With Kentucky's commitment to combatting opioid, alcohol, and other substance dependencies in mind, the Department for Medicaid Services is implementing a new standard of care for substance use treatment through the expanded services. These new standards will enhance coverage and increase access to care for Kentuckians seeking recovery from SUD.

"Implementation of this SUD waiver will increase and improve services to those fighting with addiction," said Carol Steckel, Commissioner of the Department of Medicaid Services. "Giving extra support impacts quality of life for the entire family."

By Nicole Burton

On Friday, Gov. Matt Bevin recognized the sacrifice of a Kentucky sailor who died in World War II, but whose remains have just been positively identified.

Navy Seaman 1st Class Millard Burk, Jr., 19, of Pikeville, died during the attack on Pearl Harbor. On Dec. 7, 1941, Burk was assigned to the battleship USS Oklahoma, which was moored at Ford Island, Pearl Harbor, when the ship was attacked by Japanese aircraft. The USS Oklahoma sustained multiple torpedo hits, which caused it to quickly capsize. The attack on the ship resulted in the deaths of 429 crewmen, including Burk.

Traffic impact report from District 3

By Wes Watt

Some of the expected traffic impacts in District 3 for June 17 through June 21 are listed below. All work is subject to change.
  • Interstate 65: The left lanes in both north and southbound directions are expected to be closed as the bridge painting work continues at the Louie B. Nunn Cumberland Parkway interchange at the 43 mile marker. These closures will take place between 8pmCT and 6amCT. The lane closures will be done nightly for approximately two weeks. Law enforcement will be present during the closures. The work is weather dependent so it's possible the schedule could change.

  • Metcalfe County, KY 163 Tompkinsville Road: Contractors will continue to work on a project to replace a bridge over Rogers Creek on KY 163 between Robertson Shaw Road and Radford Martin Road. Traffic has been switched onto the new bridge. Flaggers may be present to maintain traffic through the work zone.

  • Monroe County: Construction of the Tompkinsville Bypass will continue. Folks in the community will notice signs placed in advance of the construction zones. Since it is a new route, most of the construction will take place away from traffic; however, as construction progresses, some traffic impacts will occur particularly at intersections. Cloyd Road has been closed to through traffic indefinitely. Traffic on Capp Harlan Road and Cave Springs Road have been routed to a new traffic alignment at the intersection with the new bypass. Traffic near the KY 100 intersection has been diverted to a new temporary alignment.

  • Barren County, US 68 Edmonton Road: Contractors are expected to work on a resurfacing project that will also improve roadside features along US 68 from the intersection of Lecta Salem Road extending east to the Metcalfe County line, a distance of 6.21 miles. Flaggers will be present to maintain traffic through the work zone.
