  • Three charged in sealed indictments

    Three Campbellsville residents have been charged with drug and other crimes in four indictments recently unsealed by a Taylor Circuit Court judge.

    A grand jury may seal an indictment if there is a possibility that the accused will try to evade police.

    Indicted were:

    - Srivivas Veerareddy aka Sean V. Reddy, 44, of 161 Carter Road was charged with first-degree selling a controlled substance.

    Bond was set at $20,000 cash. If convicted, Veerareddy could be sentenced to as much as 10 years in prison.

  • Farms fewer but larger

    There may be fewer farms in Taylor County today, but the average size of those farms has grown.

    According to the recently released Census of Agriculture data, there were 941 farms in Taylor County in 2007, down just 2 percent from the previous census, which was conducted in 2002.

    "I would have thought we would have lost more," said Taylor County Extension Agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources Pat Hardesty.

  • English program a good way to say ‘welcome’

    It has to be difficult to move to a new country, and even worse when you don't speak the language.

    That's why programs in place at local public schools - and at Campbellsville University - are so important.

    If any of you have ever visited another country where you didn't know the language, then you know at least part of what we're talking about. Now, imagine moving to live in that country.

  • One charged in sealed indictment

    A Greensburg man has been charged with selling cocaine in an indictment recently unsealed by a Taylor Circuit Court judge.

    A grand jury may seal an indictment if there is a possibility that the accused will try to evade police.

    Christopher R. Tungate, 26, of 3909 Campbellsville Road was indicted on a charge of first-degree selling cocaine.

    Bond was set at 10 percent of $10,000. If convicted, Tungate could be sentenced to as much as 10 years in prison.

    - An indictment is a legal accusation only. It does not establish guilt.

  • A special Valentine weekend

    I wanted to share with your readers a blessing that was received this past weekend as I was able to share a Valentine program at our two nursing homes and our assisted living facility.

    I would hope that this would encourage others to visit the residents in these facilities. This is different from a hospital visit, because a hospital visit usually needs to be brief since the patients need rest more than they need an extended visit. But it is different in a nursing home or an assisted living facility.
