  • Lady Tigers can't complete sweep, fall out of first in MSC race

  • Intern says newspaper has it all

    Whoever said that local newspaper journalism is dead is full of it.

    If there's one thing that I have learned in my almost three months at the Central Kentucky News-Journal, it's that people in small towns rely heavily on their local newspaper.

    The local newspaper is the source for local events. The New York Times isn't going to tell you what time the Easter service is at Asbury United Methodist Church or whose children were on the school honor roll.

  • Text messaging bill bans texting while driving

    Those who text and drive might want to give their thumbs a break.

    State legislators have passed a bill that will ban texting while driving for everyone and all use of cell phones while driving for those younger than 18.

    Those who don't put their cell phones down could be fined $25 for a first offense and $50 for each subsequent offense.

    The bill now waits on Gov. Steve Beshear's desk to be signed.

    State Rep. John "Bam" Carney, R-Campbellsville, says all indications suggest that Beshear supports the bill and will sign it into law.
