  • Arrest made in attempted bank robbery at Taylor County Bank

    Less than a week after an attempted robbery at Taylor County Bank, the suspect has been apprehended, according to a release from the Campbellsville Police Department.

    Jeremiah Johnson, 45, of Sandersville Road in Lexington, was arrested last Friday following a traffic violation in Greensburg, Indiana, approximately 300 miles from Campbellsville. He is currently incarcerated at the Taylor County Detention Center after being extradited and being lodged in the jail at 10:08 p.m. Monday evening.

  • Raikes reigns as DYW

    Standing in front of her fellow contestants, judges, and a capacity crowd at the Taylor County High School Auditorium, Taylor County High School senior Lexi Raikes was crowned 2018 Distinguished Young Woman of Taylor County.

    Raikes, the daughter of Jeremy and Tiffany Cornish, said she would have been happy for any of the 12 other contestants to win, but she was honored that she was chosen.

  • New Taylor County Fire Station officially opens

    The project has been years in the making, but Taylor County Fire and Rescue officially opened its new home Saturday.

    A large crowd was on hand for the open house and dedication of the new facility Saturday afternoon. Among those in attendance were State Sen. Max Wise, Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young, Taylor County Judge-Executive Eddie Rogers, members of the Taylor County Fiscal Court, and members of Taylor County Fire and Rescue, as well as members of Campbellsville Fire-Rescue.

  • County schools to get field at VMP

    Taylor County Fiscal Court will draw up formal papers to put Taylor County Middle School in charge of the former Babe Ruth baseball field in Veterans Memorial Park for the Lady Cardinals’ softball team. That decision was made in a special-called meeting Thursday morning.

    The Taylor County Schools will be in charge of maintenance, upkeep and letting other teams or orgranizations use the field for the next 15 years.

    The school district is also in charge of putting up new lights and paying those expenses.

  • Busy city street gets stop sign

    A new stop sign now stands at the corner of Lebanon Avenue and Main Street.

    “Some businesses asked us to install some crosswalks and one of them was going to be there at Firestone and the tourism commission,” Mayor Tony Young said. “So, when we ran it by our police department to look at that, they recommended a stop sign.”

    The change could probably have been made sooner, and there will still be some confusion until drivers get used to the situation. Out-of-town drivers were already confused on who had the right-of-way.

  • Organ donors give the gift of life

     

    My dad has had a change of heart recently.

    Actually, he received a new heart via transplant on Sept. 29.

    In a way, it had been a long time coming, but in other ways, the wait was extremely short.

    Dad’s heart problems began when I was in high school, and he was about to turn 37 years old.

    In the summer of 1988, I was gone on a trip with friends to Charleston, South Carolina. My parents were home and my mom was getting ready to go to a friend’s wedding just up the street from our house.

  • TCHS boys move up into a third-place tie at state golf

     

    Taylor County High School boys’ golf team improved to a tie for third, after finishing fifth last year at the Leachman Buick GMC Cadillac KHSAA State Tournament at Bowling Green Country Club. The Cardinals went from 628 in 2016 to 590.

  • Battle between Eagles to decide District 2 top seed

    The last eight games between Campbellsville and Bethlehem have been some strange deals.
    The last two, just like tomorrow’s encounter on Dave Fryrear Field, have been district battles. CHS fell 14-13 at home two years ago and Bethlehem pulled away for a 22-8 triumph in Bardstown last season.
    The previous six contests between the sets of Eagles were back-and-forth with each team winning six.
    Campbellsville went 2-1 at Bardstown with a 33-21 loss in 2013 while Bardstown went 2-1 on the road with its only loss coming 36-0 in 2014.

  • Third frame costs TC at East Jessamine

    Taylor County scored on the last play of the first half to lead home-standing East Jessamine on Friday night.
    However, the host Jaguars put up three third-period touchdowns and held on for a 28-20 district triumph in Nicholasville.
    The Cardinals led 6-0 early in the second period on Tre Goodin’s 54-yard pass touchdown pass to Cameron Kosid out of punt formation.
    However, East Jessamine led 7-6 before Darien Bishop’s interception at :39 set up Logan Parker’s burst from two yards out.
    Bishop caught the go-head conversion from Goodin.
