LWC Men's Soccer season ends after 3-2 loss to Cumberlands

By Kyle Jackson

Columbia County, GA - The No. 9-seed Lindsey Wilson men's soccer team (11-4-2, 8-1-2 MSC) lost to No. 8-seed Cumberlands (KY) (14-5-2, 8-2-1 MSC) Tuesday afternoon in the first round of the NAIA National Tournament.

David Ibrahimkadic led the Blue Raiders on the afternoon with four shots, one shot on goal, and a goal in the match. David Coffey made three saves for the team tonight with the Blue Raiders outshooting the Patriots 11-9 but only got four shots on goal to Cumberland's six.

The Blue Raiders began the game with the right energy, as they got downfield and registered a couple of shots on goal in the opening 10 minutes. It was Cumberlands however that stole the momentum from the Blue Raiders moments later, as they struck twice in the span of a minute to take a two goal lead.

State Police participate in International Roadcheck

By Sgt. Jason H. Morris

Frankfort, KY - The Kentucky State Police (KSP) will be participating in the annual Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) International Roadcheck from May 4-6. This enforcement campaign occurs in the U.S., Canada and Mexico to ensure commercial motor vehicles and drivers are compliant with regulations.

"International Roadcheck reminds motor carriers and drivers of the importance of proactive vehicle maintenance and driver readiness," said CVSA President Sgt. John Samis with the Delaware State Police. "International Roadcheck also aims to raise awareness of the North American Standard Inspection Program and the essential highway safety rules and regulations in place to keep our roadways safe."

KSP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement (CVE) Inspectors will ensure the vehicle's brake systems, cargo securement, coupling devices, driveline/driveshaft components, driver's seat, exhaust systems, frames, fuel systems, lighting devices, steering mechanisms, suspensions, tires, van and open-top trailer bodies, wheels, rims, hubs and windshield wipers are compliant with regulations. Inspections of motor coaches, passenger vans and other passenger-carrying vehicles also include emergency exits, electrical cables and systems in the engine and battery compartments, and seating.

LCDHD: District lags in vaccinations

By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

Despite COVID-19 vaccines being abundantly available in our district, and despite Lake Cumberland's death rate (1.92%) from COVID-19 being higher than the state average (1.46%), and the national average (1.78%); and, despite our hospitalization rate (5.58%) being higher than the state average (4.93%), our district is showing a particularly poor uptake rate for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Of the total population of the state, the federal COVID-19 vaccination dashboard shows that 41% of Kentuckians have had at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Unfortunately, every county in our district is below the state average (with McCreary being in the bottom 5 counties in the state). For our district, here is where we are:

  • Taylor - 33.23%
  • Pulaski - 31.72%
  • Russell - 30.88%
  • Green - 27.89%
  • Cumberland - 26.98%
  • Adair - 25.06%
  • Wayne - 25.04%
  • Casey - 22.67%
  • Clinton - 21.92%
  • McCreary - 19.93% (one of the bottom 5 counties in the state)
We added more cases today than for the same time period last week, so our 7-day average incidence rate per 100,000 went up slightly.

May is Better Hearing and Speech Month

By Kim Saylor Brannock

Frankfort, KY - With an estimated 48 million Americans experiencing hearing loss, the Kentucky Commission on the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (KCDHH) is encouraging the public to act on the early signs of trouble - for the benefit of their health, cognitive well-being, physical safety, and overall quality of life - during national Better Hearing and Speech Month (BHSM) in May.

"Thousands of Kentuckians are affected by hearing loss and many of them are not diagnosed, because it often happens over time and they don't realize it," said Gov. Andy Beshear. "Hearing loss is much more than a nuisance. It can affect every part of your life. I encourage Kentuckians who suspect they have a hearing loss to get it checked during Better Hearing and Speech Month."

Nearly 700,000, or 16%, of Kentuckians are deaf and hard of hearing.

"We know that many adults wait years or even decades before getting help for their hearing loss, believing that they are getting by just fine," said Virginia Moore, KCDHH executive director. "However, many aren't doing as well as they think they are, and we want people to not just get by, but to thrive in their work and lives. As we learn more about the connection that hearing loss has to many other health and medical conditions, as well as how hearing loss can impact personal relationships, career success and overall happiness and satisfaction, we hope more people become motivated to take the next step and seek out a hearing evaluation from a certified audiologist."

The following questions can help adults determine if they are having hearing difficulties:

Three ACPC Art students display work in NPS project

Click headline to see photos of students and their artwork.

By Debbie Bradshaw, Principal

Thanks to Mrs. Campbell, our ACPC art teacher, every K-2 student, during their weekly art class, had the opportunity to participate in an event called "Women in the National Park Service" A Tribute.

Our school was allowed to send in only the work of three students, who were chosen due to their continuously excellent work in Art Class:
  • Dianna Sanchez (Kindergartener in Mrs. Pepper's class)
  • Jase Stargel (First grader in Ms. Donnita's class)
  • Ruby Caceres (Second grader in Mrs. Taylor's class)
At the end of the exhibit, the work will be sent back to ACPC so it can be returned to the students. Each student will also be receiving a ribbon and certificate, signifying their excellence in Art.

We are extremely proud of our hard-working ACPC students using their creativity to share a positive message!

The full exhibit is on display from May 15-July 15, 2021 and can be viewed online at https://www.flickr.com/photos/thedreamrocket.

Monday morning tornado struck Monroe County

By Linda Waggener

We're waking to a second stormy May day in Adair County. Crashing thunder drowned out the sound of my 6am alarm.

Betty Smith at Columbia's Flowers & Things commented last night on the unusual weather we had Monday morning, with a tornado warning that seemed to come out of the blue and ended just as suddenly. She said Bowling Green's WBKO Channel 13 evening news showed a tornado touched down and did damage in Monroe County.

What she and I had heard early Monday turned out to have been a warning from cell phones for Cumberland and the southern tip of Adair County that some received and some did not. Warning sirens did not sound here because the national weather service didn't include Columbia in the warning area.

Friends shared overnight that all seems to be well in Adair County and also in Burkesville, however, Tompkinsville/Monroe County was where yesterday's tornado touched down. An EF1 tornado did damage to many properties, especially around Columbia Avenue in Tompkinsville. Thankfully no injuries were reported. They are dealing with their warning sirens which did not work.

LCDHD COVID-19 Public Information Brief 5/3/2021

By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

We added fewer cases today than for the same time period last week, so our 7-day average incidence rate per 100,000 went down slightly. Our 7-day average incidence chart is now showing 1 county in the "green-on-track" range, Clinton; 4 counties in the "yellow-community-spread" category, Cumberland, Green, McCreary, and Wayne; and 5 counties in the "orange-accelerated" range of community-spread: Adair, Casey, Pulaski, Russell, and Taylor.

We are thankful to not have any "red-critical" counties now. Keep in mind, some of our 7-day-incidence data will be skewed over the next few days as we are reconciling our data against the state data.

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 3.45%.
