Gov. Beshear: Relief needed now for small businesses, workers

Op-Ed by Gov. Andy Beshear

Frankfort, KY - COVID-19 has hit us hard. It has taken the lives of far too many and it has upended our economy, damaging Kentucky's small businesses and hurting our workers.

I've seen that hurt and that sacrifice, but I've seen our small businesses doing it willingly, knowing that it's protecting the health and the lives of their customers, their employees and their community.

That's why we have a duty to help them.

I have submitted a bill (HB 191) to the state legislature that, if passed, would immediately provide $220 million of aid to small businesses and $20 million to nonprofits.

It is the most significant aid package from Kentucky in generations, and it needs to pass as quickly as possible.

The money is there. Thanks to the hard work of my administration, we have a better budget forecast than initially anticipated.

WKU Distinguished Educator Award Nominations to close Jan. 31

Bowling Green, KY - Nominations for the WKU College of Education and Behavioral Sciences' Distinguished Educator Awards will close January 31, 2021.

Much like last year, each school district may nominate up to 10 educators. All submissions will require a letter of recommendation about the nominee. For more information, please visit https://www.wku.edu/cebs/educatorawards.php or email Stephanie Martin at stephanie.martin@wku.edu. Nominations will close Jan. 31.

The awards will celebrate the individual and significant contributions educators make to the teaching profession. From literacy to innovation, WKU will recognize 10 P-12 educators within the university's service region based on their inspiring solutions in the classroom. This is the second year of the Distinguished Educator Awards.

"We've witnessed as our Kentucky teachers have reached, passed, and exceeded many personal and professional thresholds during non-traditional instruction," said Corinne Murphy, Dean of WKU's College of Education and Behavioral Sciences. "We can never fully express our gratitude, but we wish to continue showcasing our deep appreciation with our Distinguished Educator Awards. Our teacher leaders deserve recognition and celebration after what has been, no doubt, an exceptionally precarious and trying time in their professional lives."

On April 14, 2021, WKU officials will recognize finalists and category winners during a socially-distanced celebration. Category winners will each receive a cash prize and a commemorative plaque.

History Monday: A prominent man in many ways

By Mike Watson

Matthew A. Armstrong was a mighty man, a son of William B. and Katherine Chapman Armstrong, he was born in 1845 or 1848, likely in or near Creelsboro, Russell County. His father died in 1855, leaving his mother and one sister, Sarah.

Reuben Wells was a merchant at Creelsboro, beginning about 1851, and became quite prosperous and well-known in the counties of Russell, Cumberland and Adair. He was appointed administrator of the estate of W.B. Armstrong in 1855 by the Russell County Court, and as guardian to Matthew and Sarah. In time, Reuben married Katherine and they had three children: Mary Etta, born 1857, married Robert T. Caldwell, of near Gradyville, Adair County, and lived to be 100 years of age. The other two children of Reuben and Katherine Wells were William Asa and Robert L.

Matthew Armstrong grew to be a great man. He was tall, over the average height of the day, and was a good businessman and farmer. He was known for his interest in horses, cattle, and hogs and bought, sold and traded far and wide.
