LWC Women's Tennis wins in comeback fashion at MSC Semifinals

By Chris Wells

Owensboro, KY - Top-seeded Lindsey Wilson women's tennis led just once today and at the most important time, beating fourth-seeded Cumberland (TN) 5-4 in the Mid-South Conference Tournament semifinals at Owensboro Tennis Complex.

The 14th-ranked Blue Raiders trailed 2-1 after doubles and 3-2 and 4-3 during singles play but rebounded to win to advance to the tournament finals next Saturday in Bowling Green, KY.

Lindsey Wilson has some time to relish the semifinal win thanks to a dreadful weather forecast. The tournament championship match has been postponed until 10amCT on Saturday, April 27 where the Blue Raiders face the winner of second-seeded Georgetown (KY) and third-seeded Cumberlands (KY) at Kereiakes Park, 1220 Fairview Ave, Bowling Green, KY.

Letter: Surely there is a point of compromise

Mike Watson writes:
The Farmers' Market is such an asset to our community and the vendors make it a success. Safety and security are vital, but surely there is a point of compromise here.

Could there not be a person designated as a "key holder" that could in essence escort to the handicapped accessible restroom as needed, and the lobby washroom be available only during market business hours? A portable unit is one possibility, but is an ongoing expense. --Mike

Letter: Portable restroom?

Billy Joe Fudge writes:
A simple solution would be for the Farmer's Market to rent a portable toilet. This is a weekly reoccurring event which is such an asset to our South Central Regional Community and would in effect be an advertising bonanza for the portable toilet company! Given these factors, I would think management at Farmer's Market might be able to negotiate a favorable contract with a local provider. --BJF

Mayor Pam Hoots provides statement on Farmers Market

The Farmers Market on the Square is an asset to our community; and, I like many of you, enjoy Saturday mornings at the market. It has become a weekly habit to visit the Market, see friends, and renew old acquaintances.

Recently the City Council and leaders of the Farmer's Market on the Square entered into a new agreement, which renews annually. The most recent agreement outlines the times and days in which the parking lot located at the corner of Merchant and Campbellsville street is to be used for parking and the times it is to be used as a market. The new agreement also protects the City from any third-party liability claims as a result of the Market. I realize that some decisions may not be popular; but, my responsibility is to ensure that I do what is best for; and protect the citizens of Columbia and the interests of the City of Columbia.

UK, KY awarded $87M to lead effort combating opioid epidemic

Researchers hope to reduce deaths and substance use disorder

By Nicole Burton/Doug Hogan

Frankfort, KY - Governor Matt Bevin and University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto today joined U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex M. Azar in Washington D.C. to announce a major grant award to combat the opioid epidemic.

Researchers from the University of Kentucky's Center on Drug and Alcohol Research (CDAR), in partnership with the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) and the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet (JPSC), will lead the Kentucky CAN HEAL (Communities and Networks Helping End Addiction Long-term) project. This four-year study that comes with more than $87 million in funding has an ambitious but profoundly important goal: reducing opioid overdose deaths by 40 percent in 16 counties that represent more than one-third of Kentucky's population.
