The Perry County Adult Drug Court is set to receive $1.3 million in federal support.  The grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the U.S. Bureau of Justice Assistance will be used to expand treatment services.  The funds are intended to help people who struggle with employment issues, mental health problems or a lack of basic education.

 

Wells says the funds will also provide a peer support specialist, who can relate to what drug court participants are going through.

A Kentucky appeals court Wednesday ordered a Lexington clinic to stop performing abortions until it gets a license from the state.  Republican Gov. Matt Bevin says EMW Women's Clinic has been performing abortions without a license.      

The clinic's owner says he is exempt from the licensure requirement because the clinic is a private physician's office. Bevin sued, asking a judge to force the facility to close.
