  • In Search of History

    The late Fred Phillip Harris painted this picture of the Old Courthouse and many others during his stay in the Taylor County jail in 1968. Pictured are, from left, his nephews Fred Moore of Paoli, Ind. and John Payton of Mitchell, Ind. and Betty Jane Gorin Smith, local historian.

  • Two charged in sealed indictment

    Two Campbellsville residents have been charged with selling drugs in an indictment recently unsealed by a Taylor Circuit Court judge.

    A grand jury may seal an indictment if there is a possibility that the accused will try to evade police.

    Orvey Harris, 54, and Betty Harris, 54, both of 10331 Saloma Road, were charged with first-degree selling oxycodone.

    Bond was set at 10 percent of $20,000. If convicted, the Harrises could each be sentenced to as much as 10 years in prison.

    - An indictment is a legal accusation only. It does not establish guilt.
