  • 40 years of service

    For many, Druther’s restaurant is a memory of an era gone by. At its peak in the 1960s and1970s, the Louisville-based chain had more than 200 restaurants across Kentucky.

    However, for Campbellsville/Taylor County residents and those who travel through the community, the Druther’s Restaurant on North Columbia Avenue is the only place they can swing by to grab a hot breakfast, fish sandwich, or much more that brings back that nostalgic feeling.

    The Campbellsville Druther’s is the only operating Druther’s in the U.S.

  • All the youthfulness you need

    “Hume Cronyn,” she said, squinting her eyes in my direction.
    I was standing in the grocery store aisle.
    “Excuse me?” I responded, clueless about what she meant. “Hugh?”
    “Hume, Hume,” she emphasized, “Hume Cronyn, the actor. You look like him.”
    This was a bit unusual, at least for me. I’m not used to being stopped by a complete stranger in the grocery store and learning that I look like someone I’ve never heard of.

  • Short session brings big results

    A wide array of bills were heard in committees and voted out of the Senate in a busy and exciting third week of the 2017 Session. Because this year’s 30-day meeting of the Kentucky General Assembly is considered a “short session,” we make sure we maximize our time here in Frankfort.

    Taylor Countians love their cookies. So much so that they spent more than $57,000 on them during the recent Girl Scouts cookie sale. And that’s not counting the upcoming booth sales.

    Robert D. Hall, 73, of Davis Road in Campbellsville, died at 2:40 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 18, 2007, in Campbellsville.
