  • Ground could be broken for sports complex

    Ground could be broken later this year on a sports complex that would be located on KY 55, near the proposed Campbellsville Bypass.

    That is what Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young said during Monday night’s Campbellsville City Council meeting. He added that the complex won’t replace the ball fields at Trace Creek or Miller Park.

    “This is going to enhance what we already have,” said Young. “We hope to have things ready to go by spring or summer of this year.”

    But locally, officials are less than enthusiastic. Taylor County Judge/Executive Eddie Rogers says constables still serve a purpose in Taylor County.

    “A lot of the constables work at the school, and I don’t think it’s my place or the court’s place to say that the school doesn’t need them,” Rogers said.
