  • Future still uncertain for drug coalition

     

    One of the community's weapons in its battle against drug addiction lost its funding nearly a year ago. Today, its future is still uncertain.

    Campbellsville/Taylor County Anti-Drug Coalition members learned last September they weren't approved for the annual grant they had depended on to operate.

    The office had once employed half a dozen employees, but, as grant funding was depleted, it was down to two last year. And when the $125,000 grant was lost, they feared it could be down to none.

    Trenton Lawson is one of four local children who participated in First Strokes, a two-week program begun this year at city pool.

    They apparently hibernated well last winter.

    Tick season begins in April with the spring season and ends around the first frost of the fall season, in late September or early October.

    But that isn't the case this year, according to Pat Hardesty, Taylor County Extension agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources.
