KY will comply with President's request on existing health insurance policies

Statement from Gov. Steve Beshear:

FRANKFORT, KY (November 14, 2013) -

"Kentucky will comply with the President's request to allow Kentucky's insurers the option of determining whether to extend existing health insurance policies to current policyholders for one more year. This will be a business decision for each insurer to make, as many of them have invested a great deal of time and money into preparing for the transition to new standards under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

"In Kentucky, only about 6 percent of the population may be affected by today's announcement - those who have existing health insurance policies on the individual or small group market.

"The Governor has directed the Department of Insurance (DOI) to take steps to implement the President's request. DOI will work closely with insurers to make sure they make appropriate notifications to policy holders and offer them a full view of options - including the fact that all Kentuckians are able to shop on kynect, the state's health insurance exchange, to seek alternative health insurance plans. All plans on the exchange meet all ACA guidelines and may cost less than existing policies on the private market, plus many Kentuckians will be eligible for subsidies to help pay for premiums.

"Today's decision has no effect on the fact that all Kentuckians now have access to affordable, reliable health care and they cannot be denied coverage for any reason. More than 40,000 Kentuckians have already signed up for new health insurance thanks to the ACA and kynect." - Gov. Steve Beshear

New signs near Walmart direct traffic better to Cumberland PKY

Thanks to Tamra Wilson of District 8, Kentucky Highway Department, Somerset, the signs are up. Signs should lessen the problem of down fences and cows wandering off to Wally World, especially her mom's pets

By Victoria Pike

New signs have been placed on KY 61 Southbound lane, Burkesville Road, to direct traffic to the Cumberland Parkway straight ahead and KY 80 Westbound is to the right. The new sign has been posted north of the intersection near Walmart.

Many travelers have been making the wrong turn for months thinking the first turn takes them to the Cumberland Parkway. Once they make the wrong turn, they are stuck with no good alternative to turn around.

Snow Plan: Adair County Schools 2013-14

(CM Note: School closings will be posted here on, on FM 92.7 and FM 99.9 FM, will be announced through phone alert, First Call, and through other media accessed at the end of this story)

By Superintendent Alan W. Reed

Seems Mother Nature spared us last winter from her unpredictable fury. With another winter approaching, all of us in the central office at Adair County Schools are preparing in case ice and snow blankets our roadways.

Our Transportation Director, David Jones, and I usually begin our mornings bright and early (usually 2am-3amCT) and attempt to make a go/no go decision by 4:45amCT. Sometimes it is an easy call but may times it is not. However, we always err on the side of caution relying on every possible resource out there since safety will always be number one in our district.

Adair Fiscal CT (Nov. 12, 2013) - Ann: Closing WRH would be disaster

Now's the time, Judge Melton, Westlake Chairman Craig Pyles say, to close ranks and support Westlake Regional Hospital. PERIOD. It's in the people's hands they say. Destiny will be determined by the will of the people.
The disastrous 2007 increase : Happened before this Hospital Board, under Hospital Board appointed before this Judge, and before Most of this Court, took office.

By Ed Waggener

After hearing a cautious but very hopeful report from Adair County Hospital Board of Trustees Chairman Craig Pyles and Vice Chair Neal Gold, listening to questioning of the board by Second District Magistrate Daryl Flatt then passionate endorsement of the current Board, Judge Executive Ann Melton summarized the situation at the Tuesday, November 12, 2013 Fiscal Court meeting.

First of all, she said that the hospital issue was one this court, this judge, and this board inherited and is now meeting and is turning around.

Secondly, she said that what this hospital board has done to negotiate for the lowest tax burden the court will allow, AND, were the hospital to close, not only would we lose a very vital institution, but the taxes would continue, and, in all likelihood be much higher.

Finally, she said: "We have to have a hospital. We have to have it for our kids, our parents, ourselves. And there's more. Do you think parents are going to send kids to Lindsey Wilson College in a town with no hospital? Lindsey is our biggest employer. It's a $60 million a year 'business.' Can we allow that to happen to them. And Westlake itself is a major employer - their payroll is around $10 million. It's simply unthinkable not to have a hospital here.

Elections Past: Cheap liquor doomed a candidacy

By Ed Waggener

So far as can be seen, elections in Adair County are squeaky clean today. But just a few decades ago, when vote-buying was "legal" - that is, pretty standard practice on both sides of the political aisle, the currency was generally cash and/or liquor. In larger cities votes were seemingly bought through the issuance of bearer checks used to hire people to transport voters to the polls, technically viewed to be legal. But basically the ethics of honest vote-buying and bearer checks came down to country, no hypocrisy ethics vs. better-than-thou city self-righteousness.

Citizens with votes for sale were called the "float vote," with a 1,000-2,000 vote component countywide, depending on the election. (Not to be confused with what some politicians privately called the "idiot vote," which involved an investment of time, not money, but was also in the 1,000-2,000 range.)

Heard one time in my 173 year past of a county wide election which was doomed when the candidate made a bad choice of election day liquor. "He (the candidate), sent me out with a load of generic liquor," he said. "Hell, I couldn't even give it away in The City (a term for what was then a economically challenged area of the county)." Of course our candidate lost. Don't know if the anecdote is a fact or not, but it was a good story. - EW

There was good news in the reports on roads, bridges and maintenance at the Adair Fiscal Court Tuesday, November 12, 2013, regular Fiscal Court meeting.

The biggest story was that an additional $100,000 in discretionary money will mean improvements on portions of three roads: 1 mile of Greenbriar Road in District 4 (Perry Reeder), on Powell Creek Road near Glens Fork in District 3 (Sammy Baker), and the Flatwoods Road near Portland in District 5 (Billy Dean Coffey.

The acceptance of the money was quickly approved on a motion by Magistrate Baker, with a second by Perry Reeder., was unanimous.

Click on headline for complete Ed Pipalski commentary.

By Ed Pipalski

Very heart warming story. Flashback to January 2012 and the Kentucky Legislature was a 1/2 Billion dollars short of their $1.00 match to every $2.00 Federal dollar on Medicaid.

Kentucky had to contract out to Health Management Organizations (HMO) to provide Medicaid. They started with three HMOs and one has since failed. Statistics on Medicare distribution is 10 percent of the people consume 90 percent of the health services.

How does adding tens of thousands of beneficiaries not add to Kentucky's budgetary crisis.

Oh! by-the-way, the governor has expanded Medicaid without Legislative approval or funding.
How are we going to pay for this? Too bad the New York Times didn't take a deeper look into Kentucky's health industry to get a real picture of how "Affordable" care is here. --Ed Pipalski Comments re article 63271 Kentucky How Affordable Healthcare was supposed to work

From Kerri Richardson & Terry Sebastian

FRANKFORT KY - Statement of Gov. Steve Beshear on Ford announcement of new production at the Louisville Assembly Plant:

"Quality and luxury have become synonymous with Kentucky's reputation as a leading automotive manufacturing state. That reputation has been further solidified today with the decision by Lincoln Motor Company, the luxury automotive brand of Ford Motor Company, to produce its all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC premium utility vehicle at the Louisville Assembly Plant (LAP).

"The decision to produce the Lincoln MKC at LAP is not only reflective of the plant's new capabilities, but also of the ability of our skilled and talented workforce to manufacture the kind of high-quality products that customers have come to know and love.
