  • What's new at the public library

    Taylor County Public Library will soon have a new bookmobile on the road. The library has tried before for a grant to purchase a new bookmobile and this year we were one of the lucky 12 that will get a matching grant from Frankfort.

  • Drug Court offers hope for those who need help

    No one likes to think of the community in which they live as facing a drug problem. But with the number of crimes committed in Taylor County that are reported in the News-Journal, the problem is a little difficult to ignore.

    And, after a few years, one begins to recognize the names that appear more frequently than others in court records.

    Defendants are traditionally given several chances to get their lives back on track. Judges typically try diversion and probation before prison time.

    But some people apparently won't learn without some additional prompting or help.

  • No local concern over beef recall

    It may be the largest beef recall in history, but it seems to have skipped Taylor County.

    On Sunday, the United States Department of Agriculture ordered the recall of 143 million pounds of fresh and frozen beef products from a California-based packing plant under investigation for USDA regulation violations.

  • It's a long wait just to get busy

    One of the best parts of my job is being able to take photographs. The problem is, it's also one of the worst parts too.

    I always take too many photos. That's great when it comes to work. If I take a photo and someone's eyes are closed or they were in the middle of talking, chances are I've got another photo where they're not. It also gives us plenty to choose from when designing newspaper pages.

    However, that habit has spread to my family life as well - and that's why it's one of the worst parts.

  • Life after a heart attack

    There's a bond among heart patients, according to Ed McGuire. But those who participate in Taylor Regional Hospital's cardiac rehabilitation program and others like it have more in common than heart ailments. They have survival.

    "There seems to be a tendency for the victims to become morose, to become pessimistic and feel sorry for themselves," McGuire said. "What rehab does, they take you out there and they walk you through [various exercises]. They push you just a little bit more each time and that builds your confidence. That is what gets you over the hump.
