Bevin, Conway Draw Contrasts In EKU Debate

Oct 25, 2015

With a little more than a week before Election Day, gubernatorial candidates Matt Bevin and Jack Conway squared off in the most heated debate of the race on Sunday night.

The sparring started early, with Republican Bevin calling Conway a liar, saying the Democrat repeatedly misrepresented Bevin’s position on whether to keep the state’s expanded Medicaid system.

“Stop lying to these people, stop lying,” Bevin said to Conway.

This week's show features an "encore presentation" of our show from last spring with Joel Aalberts, Director of the Eastern Kentucky University Center for the Arts.  The 2014-15 schedule of concerts and other performances will be the first he has put together for the center which opened in 2011.

The second season at the Eastern Kentucky University Center for the Arts begins next week with a performance by the world-renowned Cincinnati Pops.  On Tuesday, the orchestra, under the leadership of John Morris Russell, presents a show being called “Summon the Heroes," a celebration of America honoring the heroes of 9/11 and our nation’s storied history.
