College of Medicine opens at Bowling Green's Med Center

By Don Sergent, Bowling Green Daily News

It was hard to tell which looked more pristine, the gleaming new University of Kentucky College of Medicine-Bowling Green campus building or the 30 fresh-faced students who make up the medical school's initial class. For the 300 or so people who turned out Thursday for a ribbon-cutting that opened the $28 million medical school building on Bowling Green's Med Center Health campus, it didn't matter. It was, as Commonwealth Health Corp. CEO Connie Smith and others said, simply "a remarkable day" that was the culmination of a partnership involving Med Center Health, the University of Kentucky and Western Kentucky University. Those three came together nearly two years ago to give birth to the idea of a medical college that would serve Bowling Green and southcentral Kentucky and address a growing need for physicians throughout the state.

Nelson Sheriff's Office updates public on Crystal Rogers investigation

By Forrest Berkshire, The Kentucky Standard

The lead investigator in the disappearance of Crystal Rogers provided a wide-ranging update to the case Thursday afternoon that quantified, for the first time, in numbers, the efforts of detectives. "It is far from a cold case," said Capt. Jon Snow, the deputy sheriff who has worked as the lead detective since Rogers disappeared in July 2015. "We work on it -- if not every week -- then at least several times a month. We conducted an interview regarding it yesterday, so it is definitely not classified as a cold case." Brooks Houck, Rogers' live-in boyfriend at the time and father to her youngest child, was named early in the investigation as the prime suspect in her disappearance, but no charges have been brought against him in connection with the case.

Voter registrations in Adair move slightly right

By Pen Waggener

According to data from the Kentucky State Board of Elections, Adair County has shifted modestly to the right since the last election, although the overall number of registered voters hasn't changed much. Between January of 2017 and September, 2018, the number of registered Democrats is down 221 voters, and the number of registered Republicans has gained a nearly identical amount.

Independent voter registrations had the highest percentage change, although the overall number of Independent voters in Adair County remains relatively small.

Libertarian and Green parties saw single-digit gains, and there remains a lone registered Adair Countian in the Constitution Party. No Adair County voters were registered in any other minor political parties during the period covered.

CES students learn bicycle safety

By Calen McKinney

Campbellsville Elementary School students recently learned how to ride their bicycles safely. Doug Beckhart, a bicycle safety educator with Kosair Children's Hospital, came to CES to show fourth-grade students the proper way to ride a bicycle.

Beckhart told students they should always wear a helmet while riding a bicycle, no matter if they don't want to and how old they are. He also told them the proper way to signal while turning, how to cross railroad tracks and to always be careful and avoid hitting others.

Students rode through an obstacle course to test their skills.
