Students, faculty, and staff will have a chance to help with a charity project this week on the campus of Morehead State University.

The Kozy Hamilton Costume Shop in Breckinridge Hall will be open each afternoon, and participants can swing by to help make a stuffed bear for kids in need.

Becky Scott is the costume shop supervisor.  She says the costume construction class does a charity project each semester.

  Scott expects a lot of participants during this week’s event.

Led by a season-high 20 points from junior guard Skyelar Potter, Morehead State men's basketball never trailed in defeating Kansas City 70-62 to sweep the Eracism Invitational Saturday night at First National Bank Arena.

The Eagles moved above .500 at 4-3 with their second win in as many days. Potter hit four three-pointers, joined by grad transfer guard Tray Hollowell who also hit four three-balls and scored 14. That pair was 8-of-12 on shooting from behind the arc.

Coal-Fired Power Plants To Close After New Wastewater Rule

Nov 26, 2021

Climate change isn’t what’s driving some U.S. coal-fired power plants to shut down. It's the expense of stricter pollution controls on their wastewater.

Dozens of plants nationwide plan to stop burning coal this decade to comply with more stringent federal wastewater guidelines, according to state regulatory filings, as the industry continues moving away from the planet-warming fossil fuel to make electricity.

As COVID-19 continues to spread in West Virginia, it will likely put increased pressure on hospitals.

Retired Maj. Gen. James Hoyer, head of the Joint Interagency Task Force, reported during Gov. Jim Justice’s regular coronavirus briefing that the reproduction number of COVID-19 is now 1.04.

That means someone with the virus is spreading it to more than one other person. And hospitals haven’t yet recovered from the delta surge.
