  • Schuhmann logs 1 million safe miles for Postal Service

    U.S. Postal Service worker Richard Schuhmann has accomplished a feat few people can boast. Last month, Schuhmann joined the National Safety Council’s Million Mile Club, which requires members to work 30 years or drive one million miles without an at-fault accident.

    He is the third postal worker from Campbellsville to achieve this mark.

    “I never thought when I started in 1982 that I’d make it to this mark,” said Schuhmann, a 30-year employee of the USPS.  

  • School lunch prices to increase

    When students head back to school in August, they could have to pay a bit more for their breakfast and lunch.

    At Taylor County schools, those who qualify for reduced lunches won’t have to pay for them at all.

    At last week’s regular Taylor County Board of Education meeting, Food Service Director Gertie Graves told members she has tried to keep lunch prices affordable, and remembers only one increase in lunch prices during her time at the District.

  • Walking for a Cure

    Taylor Countians joined together on Friday night to raise money to fight cancer and honor those who have survived and lost their lives to cancer.

    Relay for Life events were Friday and Saturday at Taylor County High School’s track.

    As of Friday night, the local Relay for Life effort had raised $29,000. The goal is $40,000.

    Money raised goes toward cancer research and transportation costs.
