Our students need your help

By Becky Cassell, Editor

We all know that kids do better in school when they also have hands-on activities that correlate with their studies. That's why we need your help.

Each year, the News-Journal sponsors a Newspapers in Education project. Through this effort we call the "NIE" program, we supply copies of each Monday and Thursday newspaper to teachers who request them at local schools.

This year, we have more than ever - 877 students in 43 classrooms.

Here's how it works.

Band students ahead of the pack

By Calen McKinney

It's with a heavy heart that I write this column and reveal something I never thought I would ever say publicly.

I'm a proud alumna of the Campbellsville High School Marching Band and both enjoyed and dreaded my years of participation with the school's concert, jazz, pep and marching ensembles.

But I have to say that I'm proud of the Taylor County High School Marching Cardinals this marching season and enjoy hearing the familiar echo of their instruments when leaving the News-Journal office.

Normal? What do you call normal?

By James Roberts

We all have it. Cluttering our spare rooms, basements, attics or garages. We accumulate it through the years, amassing massive collections as we make our way through life. Junk.

My obsession began sometime during my high school years, when I started earning a dollar. I'd always been a film buff, and at some point I realized there was a whole world of movie memorabilia out there. And thus began my downward spiral into obsessive collecting of anything related to the films I loved.

What a hen!

By Linda Ireland

It was a strange funeral. Just me, my husband Bud and a one-legged chicken.

I was blubbering like a baby; Bud was punching at the rock-hard ground with a pair of post hole diggers and the chicken, wrapped in a soft towel and sprayed with ammonia to keep the neighbor's dog away, was going in the hole.

My sweet little Crippie chicken died. She was the daughter of Russell Crow - who also survived various maladies before being mauled by a passing opossum - layer of many large brown eggs and a good companion.

Cancer will change one's life forever

By Calen McKinney

The "c" word is one no one wants to hear.

It changes your life, and the lives of your friends, family and perhaps everyone who comes into contact with you.

After interviewing the Payne family (see today's front page story), I began thinking of how cancer has impacted my life.

Three of my four grandparents have had some form of cancer. Today, only one of those grandparents is still living.

Presidential race will make history

By Becky Cassell, Editor

No matter who wins the presidential election in November, we will certainly experience a history-making race.

If the Republicans win, we'll have a woman as vice president for the first time in history. If the Democrats win, the first black president will have been elected.

Taylor County's voters have historically voted Republican in national races. It will be interesting to see if that holds true once again.

Safety prevails over rumor

By James Roberts

I thought the whole thing would be over before I got there. But five hours and the makings of a serious sunburn later, I was still there, loitering about in the St. Andrew United Methodist Church parking lot, waiting. And waiting.

Someone had fired shots at Campbellsville police officers at the trailer park on Sycamore Loop and I spent the majority of that day, Thursday, Aug. 28, exposed to the damaging rays of the sun and the even more damaging rumor mill.

Insight will be a winner this year

By Becky Cassell, Editor

I am excited. It's nearly time for a new teen board to start work, and it's going to be an awesome year!

We have got a great group of teens for 2008-2009. And they're going to bring a new perspective to the News-Journal's Insight page. Several of them even have plans to enter the journalism field when they're finished with school.

There are five Taylor County High students, four Campbellsville High students and one home-schooled student.

And on Sept. 25, you'll get to meet them.

A home away from home

By Calen McKinney

I felt it the moment I stepped on campus. The fall semester at Campbellsville University had officially begun and something about the air just felt different.

I guess it was the sound of teenagers laughing while walking to dinner, seeing Stapp Lawn used as an Ultimate Frisbee arena or perhaps the most obvious sign was the lack of empty parking spaces on campus.

Each spring and fall, students from all over the United States - and even from several other countries - move to the CU campus and call Campbellsville home.

Why can't we all do good deeds?

By Becky Cassell, Editor

I am a pain in the butt to my friends sometimes. I know it. They know it.

In this techno world we live in today, there are way too many easy scams out there. So when my friends forward e-mails to me, I nearly always question them with a quick Google or Snopes search.

This past weekend, however, I had to eat my words. And I was quite happy to do so. The e-mail I was received was a story about a 4-year-old girl who wrote a letter to God after her dog died.

The letter read:
