Morehead State University

Dr. George “Mac” Luckey Jr., MSU professor emeritus and namesake of the George M. Luckey Academic Honors Program and husband of Dr. Sue Luckey, died Tuesday, Sept. 15. He was 85. 

A native of Paris, Tennessee, Luckey joined Morehead State’s philosophy faculty in 1961. Luckey was active on campus, serving as a faculty advisor to the Open Forum Club, the Blue Key Honors Society and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, a professional music fraternity. He also served on several departmental, college, and university committees. 

A group of West Virginia doctors is asking the state attorney general to withdraw support for a federal lawsuit that seeks to throw out the Affordable Care Act, which provides medical insurance for hundreds of thousands in the state.


Marshall University officials said Friday they have put a professor on administrative leave while they investigate controversial statements made in a virtual classroom setting.

In a news release, Marshall University administrators said they are aware of a video in which a faculty member made an “overtly political statement.”

Although administrators did not identify the professor in question, video circulating on social media shows College of Science assistant professor Jennifer Mosher saying she hopes those who don’t wear masks die of the coronavirus before the election.

Kentucky continues to ramp up its contact tracing and disease tracking initiatives, but the efforts are receiving pushback from some quarters.
