  • Young man keeps positive attitude

    Ben Hughes has been confined to a wheelchair most of his life. But that doesn't seem to stop him from pursuing his dreams.

    "It don't bother me," he said, with a smile.

    He does what many young people like to do - fish, listen to music, hunt, work on do-it-yourself projects and text message his friends.

    Ben, 20, was born with spina bifida, a birth defect that occurs when a baby's spinal column doesn't completely fuse.

  • Elected officials need to show up

    Seems that when we elect public officials to serve our interests, they should at least make an attempt to do so.

    For the third time this year, several Campbellsville City Council members have not shown up for a significant vote.

    At last week's Council meeting, during which the annual property tax rate was set, Members Sharon Hoskins, Paul Harmon, Stan McKinney, Randy Herron and Sue Smith voted to keep the same rate as last year. Council Members Richard Jeter and Vangie Ford cast the lone "no" votes.

  • Man helps save a life

    He found the man lying on the field. A woman was doing chest compressions. The man was cold and his face was beginning to turn blue.

    "It hits you, 'This guy is dying,' and you don't want that to happen."

    Campbellsville native David Arvin lived this experience in the early morning hours of Thursday, Aug. 20 before school began in Marietta, Ga., where he is a teacher and assistant football coach.

    The University of Louisville will open a full-time pediatric practice in Campbellsville, in partnership with Taylor Regional Hospital and the community's long time pediatrician, Winit Chartisathian, better known as Dr. Winit.

    Chartisathian's practice will convert to University Child Health Specialists-Campbellsville tomorrow, according to a U of L press release.

  • Invisible danger

    Aug. 23, 1980, began as most other days on our family dairy farm. Milking began at 4 a.m. and finished around 7. That day's agenda included re-filling our new silo with corn silage.

    The silo had been erected in April, filled with alfalfa silage and capped with a plastic tarp. This was the first time we had chopped alfalfa for silage and used a tarp to cover the silage.

    For the past 10 years, we had only used corn for silage. Our silo had never sat idle for more than one or two days, so a tarp to protect from spoilage wasn't necessary.

  • Inmate captured by U.S. Marshals

    A fugitive who escaped from a work detail in Taylor County has been recaptured in Lexington by the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force.

    According to a news release from the U.S. Marshal's office, Turner was captured Friday in the 200 block of Cranberry Street in Lexington.
