  • Somebody's prayin'

    "Preacher," a church member said to me one Sunday, "I was driving in front of the church this morning, and I saw you standing by yourself up there at the top of the front steps. I knew what you were doing; I knew you were praying. And I just want you to know it made me feel better."

    It somehow makes us feel better knowing somebody's praying, though I can't explain exactly why.

    I've never been much of a country music fan, but I can listen to Ricky Skaggs sing,

     

    Somebody's Prayin,' over and over.

  • Time to roll back the death tax

    Those who pay an abundance of taxes while they are alive shouldn't have their estates be required to pay a large amount of taxes to the government after they pass away.

    It's simply not fair and causes an undue burden on a family grieving over the loss of a loved one.

    We are of course referring to the estate tax, or, as many people refer to it - the death tax.

    The federal tax is levied on multi-million-dollar estates after a person in that tax bracket dies.

  • Senseless violence in Baltimore

    To be honest, I'm not exactly a tolerant person. I can't stand stupidity, and I have little patience for people who do things that I consider to be stupid.

  • Grimes faces Lovett for secretary of state

     

    Alison Lundergan Grimes became well known during her 2011 campaign for Kentucky Secretary of State because of the TV ads starring her adorable grandmothers, who urged voters to support their granddaughter. But this campaign is different, as both have since died.

    Thelma Lundergan McHugh, Grimes paternal grandmother, died in June 2012 while Elsie Case, her maternal grandmother, died just last week, on April 23. 

  • Hollon honored by Cattlemen's group

     

    When the Taylor County Cattlemen’s Association decided to revive the Cattlemen’s Member of the Year award — something that hadn’t been given in “several years” — they wanted it to go to someone who was “completely dedicated” to the organization.

    For Cattlemen’s president Jason Miller, no one exemplified that this past year more than David Hollon.

  • Our sewers runneth over

     

    Frequent sewer overflows and a sewer plant that exceeds its capacity virtually every time it rains are the subject of a notice of violation from the Kentucky Division of Water.

    At a meeting of the Campbellsville Water and Sewer Committee on Monday evening, engineer David Bowles said they are "one step away from a death sentence." By that, he meant an order from the Environmental Protection Agency.

  • Students taught lessons on safe driving

     

    A funeral was held Thursday afternoon for 12 students at Taylor County High School, all of them victims of drunk driving.

    Fortunately, all of them got up at the end, because this was a simulation of the effects of drunk driving, known as Ghost Out.

    Firefighter Keith Bricken of Campbellsville Fire and Rescue said the purpose of the program is to show the consequences of drunk driving and driving while texting.
