November proclaimed Lung Cancer Awareness Month

By Crystal Staley/Scottie Ellis

Frankfort, KY - On Wednesday, November 17, 2021, Gov. Andy Beshear joined advocates at the state Capitol to proclaim Lung Cancer Awareness Month in the commonwealth, and he encouraged Kentuckians to learn more about lung cancer, its risk factors and screening options.

"Kentuckians suffer from lung cancer at a much higher rate than the rest of the country," said Gov. Beshear. "We are seeing improvements in screening and early detection, but there is still much work to be done to educate our people about prevention and to encourage them to get help once they receive a diagnosis."

Accepting the Governor's proclamation on behalf of the Kentucky LEADS Collaborative was Dr. Timothy Mullett, a professor of cardiothoracic surgery at the University of Kentucky. Dr. Mullett also is the medical director of Markey Cancer Center Affiliate & Research Network, a program that provides high-quality cancer care and high-priority clinical trials, and serves as the chair of the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.

Governor authorizes vaccination boosters for all KY adults

By Crystal Staley/Scottie Ellis

Frankfort, KY - On Wednesday, November 17, 2021, Gov. Andy Beshear signed an executive order that qualifies every person 18 years old or older and living or working in the commonwealth to get a COVID-19 vaccination booster six months after their second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines, or two months after a single-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

The Governor said Kentucky was seeing declines in COVID-19 case numbers and the test positivity rate for many weeks, but recently those numbers have begun to plateau or even slightly increase.

"We are moving into the amazing holiday season with Thanksgiving, Christmas and other gatherings, which unfortunately are especially risky for COVID-19 being able to spread," said Gov. Beshear. "Because of that, it's more important than ever that we get people vaccinated and get people their boosters to push their immunity up to the highest levels, because over time that immunity wanes."

More than 125 attend 19th-Annual Luncheon to honor Veterans

By LWC Public Relations

Lindsey Wilson College took time out to honor local citizens who served their country on Thursday, November 11, 2021, when it hosted the 19th-Annual Veterans Day Appreciation Luncheon. This year the event was held at the Adair County VFW Post 6097 with more than 125 veterans and their families in attendance.

The luncheon was catered by the LWC dining center. Lindsey Wilson students and staff served and assisted the veterans during the event.

When Lindsey Wilson started the luncheon in 2003, it was attended by fewer than 40 people.

"We're so pleased how this event has grown over the years," said Vice President for Student Services and Enrollment Management Dean Adams. "It's a small way for our college community to say 'thank you' to the men and women of this region who helped keep our country strong and free."

By Jordan Hensley, LRC

Frankfort, KY- While a ban on texting and driving is not new, Kentuckians may soon be asked to put their phones down while driving altogether.

Rep. James Tipton, R-Taylorsville, testified before the Interim Joint Committee on Transportation on Monday about his intentions to file a bill for the 2022 legislative session that would only allow the hands-free use of a personal communication device while driving.

"We're talking about proposed legislation that's intended to save lives and improve public safety," Tipton said.
