  6. Free Sports Physicals Offered by Murray Hospital
    Murray-Calloway County Hospital will host its annual free sports physicals to local middle and high school athletes on Saturday, June 20 and Saturday, July 11 from 8 am to noon.

    The physicals will be held in the Outpatient Surgery Area, located on the second floor of the South Tower. Volunteer physicians and nurses will perform the physicals. To receive a free physical, the student must be seventh grade or above and enrolled in the Murray Independent School District and Calloway County School District. The student also must have a completed medical history form signed by a parent or guardian. No appointment is necessary.

    In 2014, the two-day free physical program saw more than 530 local athletes cleared to play sports. The average physical costs a family $100, but Murray-Calloway County Hospital coordinated a team of seven volunteer physicians and 35 other volunteers to give their time and provide the exams free of charge. The estimated savings to local families was more than $53,000.

    The free physicals are part of the hospital’s commitment to support local school systems, which also includes providing salaries for school nurses and athletic trainers. MCCH also has donated AED unites to both schools, offers free membership at the Center for Health and Wellness to student athletes and provides CPR training for coaches. For more information about the program, contact Melissa Ross, Health Promotions Coordinator, at 270-762-1832.

  10. One Lane Traffic on Eggners Ferry Bridge Monday
    A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict traffic to one lane on the US 68/KY 80 Eggners Ferry Bridge at Aurora on Monday.

    The US 68/KY 80 Eggners Ferry Bridge will be restricted to one lane starting at around 9:00 am Monday to facilitate the pouring of concrete for construction of Pier 1 on the new bridge. This lane restriction for Monday is expected to be in place until about 3:00 or 4:00 pm. Concrete trucks are required to park on one lane of the old bridge to deliver concrete to the work site for the new structure.

    KYTC Spokesman Keith Todd says drivers should be alert for one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers. Delays to traffic in this work zone have been fairly minor, generally less than 5 minutes.

    Due to the number of trucks delivering materials to the construction site for the new bridge, motorists should continue to use caution in this busy work zone at all times.  Motorists should be alert for oversized loads of steel heading to this construction site along US 641 and KY 80 through Marshall and Calloway Counties and from I-24 along KY 453 and The Trace through Land Between The Lakes.
