Additional Guard Members to support strained KY hospitals

By Crystal Staley/Sebastian Kitchen

Frankfort, KY - On Thursday during his weekly Team Kentucky update, Gov. Andy Beshear said more teams from the Kentucky National Guard will arrive over the next week at strained Kentucky hospitals. Assisting with nonclinical functions within the hospitals to allow hospital staff to focus on patient care, 310 additional Guard members will support 21 hospitals around the commonwealth.

"This shows that every hospital is bursting at the seams, that they desperately need help and that we are a state full of more desperately sick people than we have ever seen," said Gov. Beshear. "I believe this is the largest deployment of the Guard in this crisis health care situation in our history. Every time we've asked, they've stepped up and served us so proudly."

More than 100 Guard members already are assisting at St. Claire Regional Medical Center in Morehead, Appalachian Regional Healthcare in Hazard, The Medical Center at Bowling Green and Pikeville Medical Center. The additional teams will support:

Cumberland Thunder: Free 5-Year Anniversary concert

The Christian band "Cumberland Thunder" launched in November of 2016 with a concert in their hometown of Russell Springs. Now, in a few short months, the band will be celebrating their fifth anniversary.

"This is a special milestone for us," says guitarist Joshua Tomlin. "When we started on this musical journey, we were unsure of how people would respond." Tomlin went on to say that as he and his bandmates have travelled across the country, they have been met with an overwhelmingly encouraging response.

It's because of that response that Cumberland Thunder wants to have a chance to give something back to their followers. "For a band that started as just a bunch of small town kids, the kindness shown to us by our fans and friends has been immeasurable. That's why we are putting together a free concert to allow everyone to celebrate this five year mark with us," says Tomlin.

For those interested in attending this free event, it will be taking place on Friday, November 12--almost five years to the day of Cumberland Thunder's first official concert. It will be held at 7pmCT at the Jamestown Christian Church, 65 S Main St, Jamestown, KY.

Reminder: US127 comment period ending soon

By Amber Hale

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is reminding everyone that public input is needed to help evaluate potential improvements along the U.S. 127 corridor in Russell Springs between the Jamestown Bypass and KY 379.

KYTC, the Lake Cumberland Area Development District and Stantec Consulting Services have been conducting a planning study to identify public concerns and potential improvements along U.S. 127. An initial round of public outreach was completed in February with more than 150 survey responses. The study team used that public input along with engineering and traffic data (current and projected to 2045) to develop possible short- and long-term improvements.

Public input continues to be a critical component of the planning and project development process. An online story map summarizing the preliminary improvement concepts can be found by clicking here or on transportation.ky.gov/DistrictEight. The story map ends with a short survey that gives members of the public a second opportunity to register opinions, which the study team will use in developing final recommendations and the priority order of future improvements.
