Gov. Beshear implements new restrictions to save lives

Economy remains open with new, targeted measures to help stop rampant COVID-19 spread

By Crystal Staley/Sebastian Kitchen

Frankfort, KY - Following a record 33 deaths announced Tuesday, Gov. Andy Beshear is issuing new restrictions that will help stop the rampant spread of COVID-19 and save Kentuckians' lives while keeping the economy open.

With more than 250,000 American lives, including those of more than 1,700 Kentuckians, lost to the virus, Gov. Beshear is joining state executives from across the country in implementing new restrictions.

"Since March 6 - the day Kentucky had its first confirmed case - we have been under attack and at war with the coronavirus. It has upended our routines, damaged our economy, threatened our children's education and taken far too many lives," Gov. Beshear said. "Now, it is time for Kentucky's third counterattack on the coronavirus. Let me be clear about a few things. This is not, and will not be, a shutdown. Our economy is open, and there will be no closings based on essential or nonessential services. But today we are announcing significant, but surgical and targeted steps designed to slow the spread of the virus and protect our people."

While Kentuckians sacrificed a lot to keep Kentucky cases comparatively low early on, the state has experienced a 400% increase in positive cases over the past nine weeks, and the third spike shows that Kentuckians need to buckle down and comply with existing orders, like wearing a facial covering, while adopting new requirements.

The Governor said requirements for restaurants; bars; social gatherings; indoor fitness and recreation centers; venues and theaters; and professional services are effective at 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 20, through 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 13.

Chowning speaks on the CU's Dialogue on Race program

By Jesse Russell

Campbellsville, KY - "The Campbellsville University Dialogue on Race was launched in the fall of 1999 and was an outgrowth of an ongoing series of discussions we had with a group of Black pastors from around the state, along with community leaders, as a way of increasing racial and ethnic understanding and discussion on the university campus," Dr. John Chowning, executive assistant to the president for government, community and constituent relations, said.

There was a national movement, at that point in time, in which organizations were encouraging by the White House to have organized conversations on race.

The Dialogue on Race has been ongoing annually at CU since 1999 with no interruption and has involved a number of outstanding speakers as well as community and campus leaders meeting with classes to have intentional discussions on racial issues and concerns, Chowning said.

Chowning said, "Through the years, many students, as well as faculty and staff, have reported very positive results and a better understanding of the issues that have long divided us and ways to bring us together."

By Nick Roy
Adair County Extension Agent for Agriculture & Natural Resources

Black vultures are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, however producers have a few options available in help to reduce losses to black vultures.
