Bilstein expanding in Bowling Green Operation

By Crystal Staley/Jack Mazurak

Frankfort, KY - On Thursday, Gov. Andy Beshear congratulated German-owned steel processor Bilstein Group, as company leaders broke ground on a $17.8 million investment at its Bilstein Cold Rolled Steel LP campus in Bowling Green, a project that positions the location for future investment and job growth.

"Bilstein has been a great corporate partner to Warren County and the commonwealth since it opened four years ago, and I am thrilled to see the company finding success in our state," Gov. Beshear said. "This investment not only will help the company meet its job growth targets, but also creates a foundation for possible further expansion in the coming years. I look forward to seeing BILSTEIN grow with Kentucky as we strive to build an economy that works for all of our residents."

Bilstein's investment will allow for the construction of a new 8,500-square-foot facility in the Kentucky Transpark in addition to its existing 105,000-square-foot operation, to better serve the North American market. The project will feature the installation of new equipment, including batch annealing furnaces, and upgrades to existing equipment to increase production capacity of high-performance, cold-rolled steel strips.

LWC Women's Track & Field 2020-21 Rewind

By Kyle Jackson

The Lindsey Wilson women's outdoor Track & Field team finished second in the Mid-South Conference championships in a year where they racked up five top 10 finishes in outdoor competitions. Due to varying concerns with the pandemic, the women's indoor track & field team only competed in one event where no team score was given. Meredith Johnson did qualify for the NAIA Indoor Championships where she placed 11th in the 1,000-meter run, missing the finals by just over two seconds.

Five Blue Raiders competed in the 2021 NAIA Outdoor Track & Field Championships with Laila Hardin, Emilija Kusic, Jahlia McNealy, Kerryann Scott and Ty'Nasia Walker all earning a spot in the qualifiers. The women finished 29th in the national competition with Hardin finishing seventh in the 400-meter hurdles, earning her NAIA All-American honors.

Kentuckians can double their buying power at Farmers Markets

By Sean Southard

Versailles, KY - During Farmers' Markets Week, Commissioner of Agriculture Dr. Ryan Quarles joined leaders of the Community Farm Alliance (CFA) and other partners to raise awareness of a state program that makes more fresh, local produce available to low-income Kentuckians.

Kentucky Double Dollars doubles federal SNAP, WIC, and senior nutrition benefits at 43 participating farmers' markets in the commonwealth. This program is a collective effort of CFA, Bluegrass Farm to Table, the Kentucky Agricultural Development Fund, the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA), Passport Health Plans, and WellCare Health Plans.

"The Kentucky Double Dollars Program helps achieve one of the key goals of our Hunger Initiative - to make fresh local foods accessible to more Kentucky families," Commissioner Quarles said. "It also increases sales at Kentucky farmers' markets, creating new income for producers. During the pandemic, this program was a lifesaver for our farmers and low-income Kentuckians. It's a win-win for everyone involved."
