May is Motorcycle and Bike Safety Awareness Month

By Erin G. Eggen

Frankfort, KY - In recognition of May as Motorcycle and Bike Safety Awareness Month, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's (KYTC) Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) is joining the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in reminding all road users to work together to help prevent crashes, injuries and deaths on Kentucky roadways.

"We're entering the warmer months and that typically means more motorcycles and bicycles on our roadways," said Gov. Andy Beshear. "Safety is a mutual responsibility and we encourage all road users to do their part in making sure everyone makes it to their destination safely - every trip, every time."

A motorcycle or bicycle is a vehicle with all of the rights and privileges of any motor vehicle; however, as one of the smallest vehicles on the road, a motorcycle or bicycle may be in a vehicle's blind spots.

"We're asking motorists to take simple yet important actions when behind the wheel," said KYTC Secretary Jim Gray. "Taking the extra step of looking twice at intersections and before changing lanes or making turns could be the difference between life and death for a motorcyclist or bicyclist."

Going to the Chapel... A 1st at T.J. Samson Community Hospital

Story by Casey Franklin, RN

Balloons and streamers; cake and flowers and gifts wrapped in white. It all looked exactly like what one would expect to see on a typical wedding day. But this wedding day was anything but typical--because it would occur right in the little Chapel beside the Intensive Care Unit at T.J. Samson Community Hospital.

The groom, Shawn Peacock, is a soft-spoken man in his 30's. Shawn had received a life-altering diagnosis while in the hospital. His condition was so fragile that it was not clear if or when he would get to go home. For many, the moment that such a prognosis is given is one of sheer tragedy. Fear of loss, pain, and the uncertainty of what is to come for oneself, family, and friends can dominate the mind of the person afflicted. But this was not the case for Shawn. His thoughts were only of his deep and abiding love for his fiancee; Sarah Anderson. So when he was told of his heartbreaking diagnosis, Shawn locked eyes with his nurse, and he said what was on his heart, "I know I'm going to survive this, but I'm not leaving here without being her husband."

Nurses are trained for all sorts of situations. They know how to deliver both good news and bad. They know how to balance caring for a body while tending to a heart. But planning a hospital wedding on short notice is not on their usual list of duties.

By John Hicks/Greg Harkenrider

Frankfort, KY - The Office of State Budget Director (OSBD) reported on Tuesday that April's level of General Fund receipts of $1.84 billion is the highest monthly amount ever reported.

Over 80 percent of the revenue increase over last April was from the individual income tax.

The 16.4 percent year-to-date growth rate exceeds the 7.2 percent budgeted growth rate for the current fiscal year.
