  • Honoring his Sacrifice

    It's been nearly 23 years since he was killed in the line of duty, but his memory hasn't been forgotten.

    Those passing by Brookside Cemetery on Thursday afternoon might have seen a gathering of law enforcement officers from Kentucky State Police, Campbellsville Police and Taylor County Sheriff's Office. They were there to remember KSP Trooper Johnny Edrington II, who was killed in the line of duty on Dec. 20, 1988.

    Edrington's murder remains unsolved.

  • EMS in the spotlight

    Local Rescue and E-911 services have been in the spotlight for the past several months.

    However, this week has been set aside to recognize EMS workers nationwide as national Emergency Medical Services week.

    Many local EMS workers say their jobs are tough but worth the stress.

    For some, Campbellsville/Taylor County Rescue Director Allen Bottoms said, the job is in the blood, with many family members having at one point donned Rescue gear. For others, he said, Rescue becomes like a home to them.

    "It's family," Bottoms said.

  • CHAMBER: Agri-Business of the Year

    He spends his days and nights caring for animals. Though that doesn't leave him much spare time, Dr. Ben Cox says he enjoys having his own farm and operating a veterinary office.

    Cox's work was rewarded recently when the Campbellsville/Taylor County Chamber of Commerce named him this year's Agri-Business Award winner.

    Chamber member John Wayne Kessler presented the award during the Chamber luncheon on May 12. When introducing this winner, Kessler began reading a list of accomplishments.
