  • Agee enters guilty plea to sex charges, sentenced to five years

     

    Christopher Agee pleaded guilty on Tuesday afternoon to first-degree sexual abuse and third-degree rape. He will serve five years in jail.

    His formal sentencing hearing will take place on Tuesday, May 19, but he has been remanded until that date in the Taylor County Detention Center.

  • State senate approves Wise's KEES award bill

    A bill that would allow students to use Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) money during high school was unanimously approved by the Senate last week.

    Senate Bill 110, sponsored by Sen. Max Wise, R-Campbellsville, would allow Kentucky juniors and seniors earning college credit through dual-credit courses to use KEES money they’ve earned to pay for up to six college credit hours.

    Making a dual-credit course more readily available provides many benefits, Wise said.

  • 100-year celebration for fire department

    To celebrate 100 years of existence, the Campbellsville Fire Department is gathering as many stories and photos that it can in order to create a yearbook-sized publication of its long history.

    And on March 7, from 8 a.m.-noon, they are asking for help from the public in the process.

    Citizens are asked to bring any photographs that they have of the fire department, and to ensure that no photographs are lost or misplaced, the photo will be scanned right in front of the person who brought it in and handed directly back to them.

  • Pizza Hut coming back to Campbellsville

    Almost six years after the one at the Green River Plaza closed its doors, a new Pizza Hut is opening up, Pizza Hut officials said.

    A new Pizza Hut is scheduled to open on Broadway, next to Taco Bell, sometime in the summer, Regional Manager Charlie Orr confirmed last week.

    “We’re in the approval phase; we’re running our plans by the state,” Orr said.

    A Pizza Hut had been located in the Kroger shopping center on Ky. 210 for many years, but it left that building about five or six years ago.

  • ‘Blood, sweat, tears and gasoline’

    Gerry James wants to spread the word: Kentucky is more than basketball, bourbon and bluegrass.

    That is why he started Explore Kentucky, a company he describes as a community of explorers that looks to celebrate and capture the spirit of Kentucky.

    A self-described “military brat” who has lived in places as diverse as New Jersey, Oklahoma and Germany, James did not always have a high opinion of Kentucky.

    As an African-American, James was especially wary of some of the rumors of racism that he had heard about it.

  • Citizens share feelings on community

    Roughly 100 people filled the main room of the Campbellsville Civic Center on Thursday night to talk about what they saw as the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.

    Many community members said the city and county should work harder to keep young people from moving away. The community also needs a better-trained workforce, people said.

    The city and county both have many strengths, among them a friendly people, the city lake and Green River Lake, reasonable tax rates, historical monuments, Campbellsville University and a temperate climate.
