  • Heating assistance available

    For Bonnie Cross, paying her electric bill is about more than staying warm in the wintertime. A single mother of four, one of Cross' children has asthma and must use a breathing machine. When her electricity is shut off, and it has been, the machine is useless.

    For the last few years, Cross has been getting help with her bill through Community Action's Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program.

    "Our bills are really high," Cross said. "We live in an old farm house and it is drafty. Without Community Action, there is no way we would make it."

  • Zach (Allender)'s back for CU Tigers

    It was May 24, 2007. His team just two months earlier had ended a successful season with a run to the NAIA National Tournament Sweet 16 and a 27-7 record. Zach Allender had been dominant for Campbellsville University in its two games in Kansas City. In fact, he'd been so dominant that he was named to the all-tournament team and tabbed a second-team All-American after averaging 33 points and 16 rebounds in the tournament and 20 points and 9 rebounds for the season.

  • Remember those who served

    While Memorial Day is a day set aside to remember and honor military personnel who died in service to their country, Veterans Day is the day set aside to thank and honor those among us who have served their country.

    And tomorrow is that day. When we think of veterans, many of us automatically think of those our grandfather’s age. But that’s certainly not the case.

    Many young men and women in their early 20s are now veterans who have served in Afghanistan and Iraq.

  • TRH to offer conflict classes

    Conflict can be healthy when it brings about new ideas and deeper relationships. For this to occur, the basis for dealing with the conflict must be win/win.
