Today's Features

  • A Campbellsville resident will protest the movie "Tropic Thunder" because of its depiction of a character with disabilities.

    A group of self-advocates, disability rights activists and families of people with disabilities have joined to denounce the portrayal of people with intellectual disabilities in the film, which opened nationwide last Wednesday.

    The film, which has sparked boycotts and demonstrations across the country, features a character named "Simple Jack," who is referred to as a "retard," "moron" and "imbecile" in the movie.

  • Kentucky Historical Society Research Librarian Don Rightmyer will present a program on the Civil War in Kentucky for the Taylor County Historical Society on Tuesday, Aug. 19.

    In addition to discussing the Civil War, the program will provide information on resources for researching the Civil War in Kentucky.

  • Today is a holy day. Some churches designate certain days as holy days of obligation, which (I think) means obligatory attending of services on days you otherwise wouldn't.

    But today, for me at least, is a holy day of non-obligation, of free will and pleasure.

    It's raining, although that doesn't particularly make it holy. It does help, however. At least today. At least that's what I think.
