If you're not a regular subscriber to the Central Kentucky News-Journal, we bet you're wondering why you've received a copy of today's issue. Well, we wanted to show you what you've been missing.

The News-Journal has the largest circulation in the community (see Editor Rebecca Cassell's column at right) of any printed material. And if you're not a regular subscriber, we believe it's only because you haven't realized just how important your community newspaper is.

And there's no better way to prove our point than to simply show it to you.

On today's front page, you'll find the results of Tuesday's General Election and a centerpiece package on Taylor County's new jail, which is expected to open this weekend. You can also read about action taken at the Campbellsville City Council meeting on Monday night, a former Campbellsville man sentenced in federal court on charges of using his MySpace page to coerce a minor to engage in illegal activity and our annual Thanksgiving essay contest.

This page, the Opinion page, features a main editorial written by the CKNJ Editorial Board, which you're reading right now. But it also includes an editorial cartoon, a staff-written opinion column, guest columns and editorials as well as letters to the editor.

On the Sports pages, readers will see Sports Editor Bobby Brockman's column as well as stories about the CU football and basketball, Lady Tigers' basketball, youth football all-stars, J.B. Holmes, high school football stats and schedules and more.

Today's Milestones page features the Campbellsville Woman's Club, a five generation family photo, birthday, Kids' Corners and more.

The Education Pages include photos from the Taylor County Marching Band's recent state semifinals competition, a story about the last Campbellsville School Board meeting, photos of the homecoming king and queen from CHS and TCHS, school menus and more.

Each Thursday, we publish a Faith page, which includes a column called Grace Notes. This week, there are also stories about a youth ministry training at Campbellsville University, Pleasant Union Baptist Church's pastor anniversary, an upcoming Woodlawn Christian Church event and upcoming events.

The Calendar page features the upcoming week's events from all over the community.

On the Diversions page, there's the weekly Early Days column by Marie Cox, this week's horoscopes as well as the weekly crossword puzzle. Of course, the answers to the puzzle won't appear until Monday's issue, just so there's no chance to cheat.

Today's Just for Kids page features Chapter 8 of the serial story "Heads and Tails" by Leigh Anne Florence and our weekly kids' art contest.

We also feature sections for Business, Home, Farm and Thanks when space allows. All in all, our pages each week are jam-packed full of community news and events.

If you pick up a copy of the News-Journal at a newsstand, you pay 50 cents a copy. That's $52 a year. Or we can mail a subscription to your home each Monday and Thursday and save you nearly 25 percent.

If you enjoyed today's sample copy and you'd like to subscribe at a special one-time price, give Circulation Manager Rose Rainwater a call at 465-8111.

We hope you enjoy this week's news and advertising content ... and we hope you'll come back again soon.
