  • Mmmm!Annual pancake breakfast is Saturday

    It takes more than 400 pounds of sausage, about 300 pounds of pancake mix and countless volunteers to make the annual breakfast happen.

    The annual Campbellsville/Taylor County Fire Department pancake breakfast is set for Saturday at the fire department.

    According to Taylor County Volunteer Fire Chief George Wilson, the fire departments have hosted the event every year he has worked at the fire department - since 1967.

  • Reading group meets Sunday

    It's official: We have a reading group!

    In February, I wrote a story and a column, asking readers what they thought about the possibility of beginning a community book group.

    Well, the response was much more than I expected. And I'll admit I'm thrilled.

    Our first get-together is planned for Sunday afternoon, April 27 at 2 p.m. at the Taylor County Extension Office. We will have refreshments and a conversation about the book "Marley & Me."

    We will also agree on the group's next book selection.

  • The wart called homelessness

    Clad in several layers of mismatched clothing and a hat hiding her face, the woman pushed a shopping cart along North Columbia Avenue. She collected items that might be of use at some point and asked people for money.

    Many people avoided her, and most did not make eye contact.

    She continued to push her cart along the street toward the large grouping of cardboard boxes, where various people were covering themselves with threadbare blankets and plastic to keep the rain out.

    They were homeless, and the boxes were their beds for the night.

  • Home sweet home?

    They slept in small cardboard boxes on a cold, rainy night.

    They didn't have cell phones, laptop computers, access to an unlimited amount of food or even pillows. They were homeless.

    Campbellsville University students and community members participated in "Cardboard Nation" this past weekend to raise public awareness of homelessness in Taylor County.

    CU's Carver School of Social Work sponsored the event, which began Friday on Stapp Lawn at 7 p.m. and ended at 7 a.m. the next morning.
