  • Valedictorians honored at high school graduations

    Don’t reach out of your comfort zone — move it.

    This advice from Abigail Hope Hieneman’s father was something that always stuck with her.

    This small reminder about comfort zones always helped her strive to do her best and to stay involved with different activities throughout her academic career.

    And last week, she knew that extra push had paid off when she found out she had been named the valedictorian for the Class of 2015 at Campbellsville High School.

  • Valedictorians honored at high school graduations

    After more than five hours of calculations, all that stood between earning valedictorian or salutatorian at Taylor County High School was .04 of a point.

    And in the end, it was William Cooper Hall, who goes by Cooper, who was named valedictorian, barely edging out salutatorian Kassie Miller.

    Hall had figured out almost a month prior to the official announcement that he and Miller would be the two battling it out for the top two spots in the Class of 2015 because they had taken the most weighted AP classes.

  • Parties have until Wednesday to answer lawsuit

    Kentucky Utilities, Campbellsville University and Pierce Manufacturing have until Wednesday, June 3, to file a written response to a lawsuit Gina Grider filed against them.

  • Comer concedes in Republican governor’s race

    Matt Bevin will officially be the Republican gubernatorial candidate in November.

    James Comer conceded on Friday in a race that had Bevin and Comer separated by 83 votes. A recanvass did not change the fact that Bevin received more votes.

    Taylor County Clerk Mark Carney said the local recanvass was performed without incident in about 20 minutes; the numbers were the same as before.

    This outcome did not surprise him.

  • GOP primary too close to call


    Who will represent the Republican party in the General Election this fall? We may not know for another week.

    The race for the Republican gubernatorial election went down to the wire and then some Tuesday night.

    After 214,187 votes were counted, Louisville businessman Matt Bevin held an 83-vote lead over Commissioner of Agriculture James Comer, but Comer said late Tuesday night that he owed it to his supporters to ask for a recanvass.

  • 'Dynamic Duo' opens local comic book store


    It was just a chance meeting at a comic book store in Danville, but like most origin stories, it was fate that brought Bobbie Hatfield and Blake Slone together last September.

    The two quickly developed a bond.

    Despite this, it would have still been difficult to project that less than a year later, they would co-own their own comic book store.

    Given their respective back stories, though, it’s easy to see how the two individuals would make the perfect duo.


  • Water, sewer rates to increase July 1

    Water and sewer rates in the city and county will go up in a little more than a month.

    By a vote of 9-3 at a special-called meeting Tuesday night, Campbellsville City Council members approved, on second reading, an ordinance to increase the rates and change the water rate structure.

    City Engineer David Bowles estimated the "average" user - that is, one who uses about 5,000 gallons a month - will see an extra $6 or $7 on their water and sewer bill per month, whether they're in the city or county. The ordinance goes into effect on July 1.
