Trump Makes Last-Minute Pitch For Bevin In Lexington Monday, Nov 4 2019 

Trump BevinPresident Donald Trump lent a hand to Gov. Matt Bevin’s reelection effort on Monday, headlining a rally in Lexington hours before Kentuckians head to the polls to weigh in on whether to keep Bevin for another four years.

At the rally, Trump teased Bevin, telling the audience that the Kentucky governor is a “pain” because he is frequently asking the federal government for aid.

“I say ‘Matt, do I have to do it? Please, please.’ But isn’t that what you want in a governor? That’s what you want,” Trump said.

“He’s such a pain in the ass, but that’s what you want.”

Trump spoke for more than an hour to a packed crowd at Rupp Arena in Lexington and was joined by both of Kentucky’s U.S. senators and all five of the state’s Republican congressmen.

Trump painted Democrats in dark terms, saying they want to “erase our traditions, our culture, our history and our heroes” and claiming the party wants to abolish the Second Amendment.

“They want to subjugate you and break you to their will. But Kentucky will never be broken, Kentucky can’t be broken. You’re too strong and you’re too smart,” Trump said.

Trump stuck to national issues for much of his speech, railing against congressional Democrats for launching an impeachment inquiry into his behavior with the Ukrainian president and making fun of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Trump encouraged Kentuckians to vote, saying if Republicans lose “it sends a bad message.”

“Here’s the story, if you win, they’re going to be like ‘ho-hum’ and if you lose, they’re going to say Trump suffered the greatest defeat in the history of the world,” Trump said. “You can’t let that happen to me.”

The rally continued Bevin’s campaign strategy of tying himself to Trump’s popularity in Kentucky after being tagged as one of the most unpopular governors in the country in polls.

Bevin spoke nearly two hours before Trump arrived at Rupp Arena, telling the crowd to fight against “evil knocking at the door in this world and in America.”

“Are we going to let people like Nancy Pelosi and the squad to impeach this president and make a mockery of the political process?” Bevin said.

Bevin has been joined by a handful of Trump administration officials and surrogates during his campaign over the past month, including Vice President Mike Pence, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson and former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Bevin has developed a bitter rivalry with his opponent in this year’s race, Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear.

Beshear has used his office to file several lawsuits against Bevin over his use of executive authority, a pension reform bill and an investigation into teachers who called in sick to protest his policies.

Republican candidate for Attorney General Daniel Cameron also spoke, encouraging the crowd to boo reporters covering the event.

“The liberals who run the newspapers and the Democratic Party in this state cannot stand to see a conservative African American on this stage tonight,” Cameron said.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. local time on Tuesday. For more information about what’s on your ballot, check out our comprehensive voter guide.

U of L will be part of the new hub for healthcare innovations in Kentucky Monday, Nov 4 2019 

By Matthew Keck —

The University of Louisville and University of Kentucky received a $4 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to improve healthcare technologies Oct. 31. This grant will be used to form a Research Evaluation and Commercialization Hub, which includes all eight of Kentucky’s public universities along with Kentucky Community and Technical Colleges System.

“One of the things to keep in mind is that the health care sector here in Kentucky privately employs over 30,000 of our fellow citizens,” said interim secretary for the Cabinet for Economic Development Vivek Sarin. “It’s one of the top sectors driving our total economy.”

The hub will be called the “Kentucky Network for Innovation & Commercialization,” or KYNETIC, and is one of five hubs funded by the NIH. The hub is designed to speed up the translation of biomedical discoveries into commercially viable diagnostics, devices, therapeutics and tools to improve patient care and enhance health, according to the NIH.

“This is not a trick but a great treat for every single person in the Commonwealth,” said President Neeli Bendapudi. “This will provide innovation to improve the health of Kentuckians and people around the world.”

According to NIH, selected hubs are required to match the federal funding they receive and develop partnerships with life science and economic development organizations. The KYNETIC founding members will provide a $2.56 million direct-cost match to help with the funding.

Each university involved will also partner with the Commonwealth Commercialization Center (C3), a science and technology nonprofit that supports invention and entrepreneurship across the state.

“Kentucky’s ability to win this grant — one of only a handful ever awarded nationwide — was made possible in large part because of the unprecedented collaboration between our economic development cabinet, public universities and technical colleges in creating our non-profit commercialization center, C3,” Gov. Matt Bevin said. “This grant further validates the significance of C3’s public-private structure and our decision to revitalize Kentucky’s innovation and entrepreneurial support system. Together, we can have a truly positive impact on the health of Kentuckians and people around the world.”

KYNETIC aims to bring innovations such as new pharmaceuticals, therapies, devices and other healthcare technologies to the market. They also aim to address issues like lack of healthcare in rural areas.

This new hub will also be an asset in expanding U of L Health’s current research and medical developments.

“With the acquisition of Jewish Hospital and other KentuckyOne Health properties, researchers at U of L will have additional opportunities to recruit patients for clinical studies to advance research emerging from KYNETIC,” said Bendapudi. “Projects developed through KYNETIC will have the potential to further existing U of L research efforts in optimal aging, improve access to quality health care in underserved urban and rural regions, and bolster efforts to both attract and retain top faculty and students at U of L.”

The Opening Act: Magnolia Boulevard Monday, Nov 4 2019 

Sometimes you just know when the chemistry is right. The first time the members of Magnolia Boulevard picked up instruments together in early 2017, they knew it was something special. The five-piece band from Lexington mixes blues, soul and rock ‘n’ roll with elements of funk, jam band, country, bluegrass, and psychedelia. Fueled by an incredibly tight rhythm section, tasteful slide guitar licks and topped by the soul-stirring, powerhouse vocals from Maggie Noelle, the band has been building a following wherever they play.

They are currently opening up for Blues Traveler on the “Four Live” 25th-anniversary tour. WFPK is proud to be presenting the show this Friday at Headliners! (Sorry, it’s SOLD OUT!) For a preview taste, check out their debut single, the slow-burning ballad Sister. This is Magnolia Boulevard, The Opening Act!
