  • Insulin pump makes man's life easier to manage

    At age 18, Bill Manners wasn't ready for the responsibility that comes with being a diabetic. A strict regimen of diet and insulin shots seemed impossible for the teenaged Manners.

    "That's not always easy to do, especially when you are younger. You have to watch what you eat and remember your shots. I didn't want to do it when I was 18."

    Today, at 42, Manners no longer has to schedule his life around his four insulin shots.

    Manners received an Accucheck insulin pump about two months ago. He was the first person to have the procedure done at TRH.

  • City made only parking decision it could

    Campbellsville City Council's decision to change the parking on Main Street to include parallel spaces along the south side was a necessary one - for a number of reasons.

    There were no established standards for roads back when Main Street was built, so it's too narrow for many of today's larger vehicles. And that makes for close quarters on busy days.

    In addition, Main Street is a choice for many who are hoping to bypass the congestion that sometimes occurs on Broadway. That only adds to the traffic and the potential that the crowded parking creates.
