    CARY, ILL - The clinic's five resident cats may have changed addresses, but they clearly are at home with The Animal Doctor.

    They claimed as their own the area that was to be the employee lounge - a sun-soaked, second-floor vantage point overlooking the pond in Jaycee Park. T.A.D. - the group's dean and business' namesake - was abandoned in 1996. Forrest, who had surgery at 6 weeks old to remove restrictive tissue in his esophagus, is the youngster.

  • Diane Lewis and Jonathan Coomer were married on April 12 in Prince Edward Island, Canada.

    The bride is the daughter of Jeff and Doreen Lewis of Elmsdale, Prince Edward Island. She is a 2005 graduate of Apostolic Christian Academy.

    The groom is the son of Robert and Betty Coomer of Campbellsville. He is a 2003 graduate of Taylor County High School.

    A reception will take place on Saturday, Sept. 6, beginning at 2 p.m., at Campbellsville Christian Church.

  • Stephen Foster Productions in Bardstown is set to stage the Broadway musical "The Civil War" through Aug. 23.

    The musical, which was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Musical in 1999, is based on the words of Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, Walt Whitman and other historical figures, with notes and letters of actual soldiers of the North and South. The poetic words and statements are infused with gospel, folk, country and Broadway style music to bring a tribute to America's past to life on stage.

  • 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.

  • Campbellsville Baptist Church will host "No Man Left Behind 2008" tomorrow and Saturday in the Christian Life Center.
