  • Company buys head start building

    What once was a place of learning will soon become a place to repair computers.

    Campbellsville Superintendent Mike Deaton said Kentucky Department of Education officials had to give their approval to the selling price, since it's below the appraised value of the property, which he says stands at $130,000.
