Candidates for Lieutenant Governor will go head to head tonight on statewide TV as Republican Ralph Alvarado and Democrat Jacqueline Coleman appear on KET’s Kentucky Tonight with Renee Shaw.  There are now less than 3 weeks remaining until election day and the latest independent poll shows a neck and neck race, so what, if anything, can each respective candidate do to “move the needle” in their party’s direction?  This week on Capitol Chat we’re putting that question to Laura Cullen Glasscock; editor and publisher of the Kentucky Gazette in Frankfort.

How Should Opioid Lawsuit Money Be Spent? Ohio Valley Has No Shortage Of Needs

12 hours ago

At a town hall event in Logan, Ohio, Kelly Taulbee walks through the steps of an encounter with someone experiencing an opioid overdose.

As the director of nursing for the Hocking County health department, she understands the importance of this life-saving medicine.

“It is simple. It is safe. It is effective,” she said.

But she also knows that NARCAN is just one of many tools needed to respond to a crisis that has grown to affect nearly every aspect of life in this rural corner of southern Ohio.
