  • TCES kindergarteners operate lost-and-found for their school


    Kindergarteners at Taylor County Elementary School are working together to make a significant impact on their school.

    With an elementary school packed with approximately 1,160 students, there is bound to be a hefty lost-and-found overload, and that is exactly what Andrea Smith's kindergarten class discovered last year.

  • County, city prepared for winter weather on local roads

    Both city and county officials say they are prepared for possible winter snowstorms.

    Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young said the city had 20 tons of salt left over from last winter, and received a shipment of 80 more tons of salt early last month. This is roughly equivalent to how much salt the city had last year.

    The city, Young said, has also bought an additional salt spreader. And with a recent safety grant, the city was able to buy a new truck to act as a snow plow, in order to replace an aging truck, so the city has four usable snow plows, Young added.

  • Backpack program feeds hungry students


    As the holiday season approaches, different organizations are set up to make sure all families have a holiday meal, but there is a program in Taylor County that is helping feed hungry kids for longer than just the holidays.

    The Campbellsville and Taylor County family resource centers began a backpack food program in 2007.

    Students at Campbellsville and Taylor County schools and combined Campbellsville/Taylor County Head Start can be referred to the program and receive a bag of food to take home each weekend.
