R.J. Corman seeks workers in Ky.
Interested in a job that pays $25 to $35 an hour? Applications for railroad construction workers will be taken at a Saturday job fair in Lexington, Ky., the Herald Leader reports.

R.J. Corman Railroad Group will conduct the job fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at its Lexington Yard, 133 Buchanan Street, off West Main Street and across from Lexington Cemetery. Each applicant is asked to bring a driver's license and Social Security card.

Applications for jobs will be given to the first 500 unemployed people, according to a company release issued Wednesday.

The jobs will be created as part of a $17.5 million federal grant awarded last month to R.J. Corman Railroad Group.

Workers will make improvements to short line railroads that the Nicholasville-based company owns in Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia.

The company will take applications for railroad laborer, railroad equipment operator, a CDL truck driver, and bridge painter. Job training will be provided for some positions.

The jobs have a limited duration, depending on the length of the project. The jobs will be outdoors in all types of weather, but benefits are available after six months. Applicants must be able to lift at least 50 pounds.

Employment is contingent upon a satisfactory drug test and background check results.

Gov. Steve Beshear and U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler will attend the event at 11 a.m.

According ta wes...Corman has done good things for the state of Kentucky. Mainly by providing rail service ta local industries without direct service ta outside markets, and import of raw materials. And providing decent wage jobs for local railroaders in Corman's are of operations.

Corman has also 'experimented' with hybrid/clean power on a few lines. Providing yet other jobs for loco maintenance crews!

Corman has a glass hanger for his private airport.  It is glass all around--you can see thru it; big enough to hold several planes -- choppers.  It is visible from US 27 bypass outside of Nicholasville, KY. 

Local high schools are allowed to use hanger for their prom.

Sorry Snip

Expert on multiple myeloma to speak at UK Friday

- ctruman@herald-leader.com

The University of Kentucky's Markey Cancer Center and Jessamine County businessman R.J. Corman are co-sponsoring the Friday visit to Lexington of a Boston expert on multiple myeloma.

Corman has the disease and was instrumental in arranging the visit of Dr. Paul Richardson.

Multiple myeloma is a rare blood disease that is generally considered incurable, although remissions can occur with treatment.

Richardson will be holding multiple sessions for medical professionals at the Markey Center and a support session for patients by invitation only.

"It's supposed to be a multiple myeloma support group meeting," says Brenda Frazier, an administrative support associate in the division of hematology, oncology and blood and marrow transplantation at the Markey Center. The division is coordinating Richardson's visit.

Richard Corman, founder and owner of R.J. Corman Railroad Group in Nicholasville, has lived with the disease for nine years. He has been treated at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, which is a Harvard teaching hospital that Corman has supported financially. Richardson is one of his doctors.

Richardson said Corman's "commitment to myeloma research ... is quite unbelievable. ... I don't know of any patient who's done more for others than he has."

During his open session with patients and their families, Richardson said he will talk about advances in myeloma treatment. While the disease is still incurable, the average survival time is increasing. It once was as little as three years, but now has reached five to seven years.

"We're not curing the disease, but we're helping patients live longer and better," he said.
