  • State may fund KY 210 improvement planning study

     

    There could be money in the state budget for a scoping and planning study on improvements to KY 210 from Campbellsville to the Lincoln Parkway in Hodgenville.

    That’s the message from Ron McMahan, executive director for Team Taylor County, the county’s economic development authority.

    “The House has $600,000. The Senate has $250,000 proposed for a scope study on 210,” said State Sen. Max Wise (R-Campbellsville). “It will be decided during the conference committee.”

    Talks started last fall, but Curry said it’s taken some time to get everything approved. He didn’t know the store number at press time.

    “I’ll be visiting voters door-to-door in a week or two,” said Keefe. To hold a wet/dry election, a person or group has to collect signatures on a petition; the number of signatures has to be at least 25 percent of the voter turnout from the last election.

  • Near-death experience helps change outlook for local woman battling drug abuse

     

    Stormy Colvin is a daughter, sister, mother, friend, girlfriend, an ex-addict and most recently a fighter. Colvin has been addicted and using IV drugs for the past two years and it wasn’t until last month that a close call with death would be enough to scare her to get clean.  

    “I’ve never been so close to death in my life,” she said. “I was terrified.”

    She was taking a mix of Subutex and methamphetamine on a daily basis, putting a needle in her arm up to 20 times a day to just get that high.
