blind en Hammack Lecture Highlights Historically Important Kentucky Woman <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Murray State's Department of History's distinguished Hammack Scholarship Banquet is September 14th in the University's Curris Center Ballroom. Reservations are due tomorrow! History professor Duane Bolin gives the keynote titled, "The Woman who Helped Blind Children See: Linda Neville and the Struggle to Eliminate Blindness in Kentucky." It's not surprising that fourth graders led Bolin to learn more about this early 20th century pioneer in the Commonwealth. We hear a bit of Neville's story with Dr. Bolin and Kate Lochte.</span></p><p> Thu, 05 Sep 2013 18:49:40 +0000 Kate Lochte 34627 at Hammack Lecture Highlights Historically Important Kentucky Woman Afternoon Round-Up 3/13/12 <p>Missouri Governor Jay Nixon is opposing <a href="">budget cuts to a health care program for the blind</a>.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><strong>Kentucky Politics:</strong></p><p>The Kentucky House has passed a measure giving <a href="">retired prosecutors special privileges to carry concealed weapons</a> anywhere in the Commonwealth.</p> Tue, 13 Mar 2012 20:33:12 +0000 Rose Krzton-Presson 17248 at Afternoon Round-Up 3/13/12 Nixon Opposes Blind Healthcare Cuts <p>Missouri Governor Jay Nixon is opposing budget cuts to a health care program for the blind. The House budget committee proposed to cut the state&rsquo;s current 28 million dollar program and replace it with a new 6 million dollar program. The proposed cuts are expected to go in front of the entire House next week. Nixon is urging representatives to support the current program which covers healthcare costs like prescriptions and doctor visits and serves over 2,000 blind Missourians.</p> Tue, 13 Mar 2012 19:45:13 +0000 Rose Krzton-Presson 17244 at
