  • Simulator teaches seat belt safety

    Brad Franklin with the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety visited Taylor County middle and high schools last week to demonstrate the "rollover simulator." The machine, which simulates a 19-mile-per-hour crash, shows students what can happen when a driver and passengers are not buckled up during a rollover. "We go all over the state with this thing, especially before prom and other big events," Franklin said.

  • Writing portfolio added to CHS graduation policy

    Staff Report

    Beginning this school year, Campbellsville High graduates must be able to write well in order to graduate.

    At its September meeting, the Campbellsville Independent School Board approved a request from the high school to add a writing portfolio requirement to its graduation policy.

    Because the change also requires an amendment of Board policy, final approval won't be given until a second reading at the Board's next meeting on Oct. 20.

  • Conservation writing and art contests continue in new format

    Partners in the project, the Kentucky Association of Conservation Districts and Kentucky Farm Bureau, decided there was no more appropriate time to "go green" than for the 2008 edition - "Working Trees: Kentucky's Renewable Future."

  • Buy a paper clover and support local 4-H youth

    The cashier at Southern States may ask you to part with an extra dollar this month. But don't worry, it's not inflation, it's for a good cause.

    Southern States is supporting local 4-H clubs by selling paper clovers for $1. The campaign takes place Oct. 5-19.

    "We are proud to partner with Southern States Cooperative and their customers during National 4-H Week and the week after. The 4-H clover promotion is a great opportunity to highlight 4-H in retail outlets while raising funds for local clubs," said Donald T. Floyd Jr., president and CEO of National 4-H Council.
