  • Indians take two from Giants for Major title

    The Indians stopped the Giants two-year reign as Major League baseball champions with a 7-6, 9-8 sweep on Monday and Thursday last week.

  • Construction progressing well on Campbellsville school project

    Things are continuing to move smoothly for Campbellsville Independent School construction. Mitchell Roe of Codell Construction Co. provided the board with photographs and an update of the CES Addition/Renovation project.

    “We are basically on schedule,” Roe said.

    Construction is currently about 11 days behind schedule due to finding asbestos that didn’t show up on any previous reports.

  • Relay for Life tops $38,500 with new format

    The annual Relay for Life event in Campbellsville raised approximately $38,500 for cancer research via the American Cancer Society.

    That is what local Relay organizer Drew Underwood said after the event.

    This was the first year that the local Relay For Life event only went on from 4 p.m. to midnight on Saturday. It was also the first time it took place at Campbellsville Elementary School.

    Their goal is $55,000, but Underwood thinks they can easily raise that much by the end of the fundraising season Aug. 31.

  • Attendance good for county fair

    The annual Taylor County Fair was well attended, Taylor County Fair Association President Mike Litchfield said.

    “It went well, I think,” Litchfield said. “People seemed to like the old events and the new events.”

    While overall attendance hasn’t been calculated yet, paid attendance was around 13,000, said Litchfield. Overall attendance last year was between 13,000 and 15,000.

    Attendance would have probably been up from last year, but two nights of rain meant canceled events, according to Litchfield.

  • Memorial highway dedicated

    The families of Tony Grider and Charles “Sparky” Sparks and state and local officials honored the two fallen firefighters at a ceremony at a Saturday morning ceremony at the Columbia Fire Department.

    “These families here today are here with the understanding that they are never forgotten,” said Adair County Circuit Court Clerk Dennis Loy. “They will always be present in our minds.”

  • Fiscal court approves budget, votes to help fund fishing tournament

    The county’s 2016/2017 budget is down more than $900,000 from last year’s.

    At a special-called Taylor County Fiscal Court meeting Friday afternoon, magistrates unanimously approved, on second reading, a $10,447,773 budget. There was no discussion of the budget.

    Last year’s budget was $11,377,958, so the new budget, which takes effect July 1, is approximately $930,000 less.

    “We cut as much as we can,” said Taylor County Judge/Executive Eddie Rogers. “We have some people pulling double or triple duty.”
