Governor's Tuesday update, K-12 updates, rural updates

By Crystal Staley/Sebastian Kitchen

Frankfort, KY - Gov. Andy Beshear on Tuesday updated Kentuckians on the state's continuing efforts to fight the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).

Gov. Beshear continues to conduct news conference remotely as he and his family quarantine in the Governor's Mansion after they were potentially exposed to COVID-19 late Saturday afternoon through a member of the Governor's security detail.

"We are striving to have a positive attitude, given that really so little is being asked of us. And if it prevents others from being exposed to this virus, we are more than willing to do it," the Governor said.

The Beshear family will be tested regularly and will remain in quarantine until cleared by the Kentucky Department for Public Health (DPH).

"My entire family tested negative today," Gov. Beshear said. "We know it can take a while for the virus to manifest, and so we will be tested - I believe on Friday - again, but that was at least good to see."

Case Information
As of 4 p.m. Oct. 13, Gov. Beshear said there were at least 81,691 coronavirus cases in Kentucky, 776 of which were newly reported Tuesday. One hundred and eleven of the newly reported cases were from children up to age 18, of which 22 were age 5 and under. The youngest was just 1 month old.

Deer Sample Collection Stations to monitor herd health

Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife

Frankfort, KY - Hunters can learn the age of their harvested deer and help the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources monitor the health of the state's deer and elk herds through a new voluntary program available this fall.

The department is establishing Deer Sample Collection Stations at several locations across the state, where hunters may submit the heads of their legally harvested and telechecked deer for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) testing and aging.

Chronic Wasting Disease has not been detected in Kentucky but is found in six of seven bordering states. Samples collected in this effort will enhance Kentucky Fish and Wildlife's monitoring for the always-fatal brain disease that affects deer, elk, moose and caribou.

By Ariel C. Emberton, staff writer/photographer,
CU Office of University Communications

CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. - "Nobody chooses their skin color, so why would I ever hate you for yours? And why would you ever hate me for mine?" Chris Singleton said.

Singleton, a former baseball player for the Chicago Cubs and inspirational speaker, will speak at Campbellsville University's chapel service Oct. 14 at 10 a.m.

According to his website, Singleton's mother, Sharonda Coleman Singleton, was murdered along with eight other victims at Mother Emanuel AME church in downtown Charleston, S.C. in 2015 by a white male who wanted to start a race-related war in the United States.

Singleton forgave the man who murdered his mother and said, "Love is stronger than hate."

Ag Tags raised $611K in 2020 for 4-H, FFA, KDA

By Sean Southard

Frankfort, KY - Kentucky farmers donated $611,743.08 to the Ag Tag Program in the 2020 fiscal year that ended June 30, Agriculture Commissioner Dr. Ryan Quarles announced.

Kentucky motorists who buy or renew farm vehicle license plates, or "ag tags," may make a voluntary donation of up to $10 to the Ag Tag Fund. Half of the 4-H and FFA funds go back to the county where the tag is purchased, where both organizations use the funds to support local programming, awards, and scholarships.

"Year after year, Kentucky farm families step up to support our premier youth agricultural organizations and the Kentucky Department of Agriculture," Commissioner Quarles said. "Since I have taken office, we have made a concerted effort to increase the visibility of this program and have raised nearly $3 million as a result. I am appreciative to each and every agricultural producer for supporting this fund during this critical time."
