  • It's time to speak your mind

    At a special City Council meeting a couple of weekends ago, Campbellsville resident Tonya Young expressed surprise that she was the only resident at the meeting. The purpose of the meeting was to give final approval to the creation and implementation of a 1 percent occupational tax. Young was opposed to it. She thought others would be too.

    And I'm sure others are opposed to the new tax. But Young hit the nail on the head when she asked, "Do citizens just believe it would do no good to come?"

  • Churches, clubs ... here's your chance

    Sunny afternoons, chasing lightning bugs at twilight, swimming at the lake, fun vacations, hanging out with friends ... students look forward to all the fun things that come with summer.

    But some choose to do something else with their summer break. Some go on mission trips; some travel to exotic places; some even spend their summer simply helping others.

    If that's the case with you, the Central Kentucky News-Journal would like to know about it.

  • Davis, Smith plan to keep CHS head coaching jobs

    Tim Davis and Kirby Smith plan on keeping their same Campbellsville High School coaching roles for the 2009-2010 seasons.

    Some folks got the idea that Tim Davis had resigned his coaching position. He did, one of them. He will no longer be the golf coach, but definitely plans on guiding the Eagle boys' basketball team.

    It will be Davis' 15th season at CHS and his 27th as a head coach.

    Smith, who was named CHS principal, would like to remain as the Eagles' head baseball coach.

    Hot air balloons, tractors, plenty of food and lots of fireworks. This year's annual Fourth of July Celebration will begin tomorrow and continue through Sunday.

    According to Greg Gribbins, chair of this year's celebration, several new and returning events will offer plenty for everyone.

    The biggest change this year, Gribbins said, will be the location of the main stage, sponsored by Windstream, which moves to Lebanon Avenue between Main Street and First Street, near Firestone and Best Financial.

  • Two injured in Broadway/Cherokee intersection crash

    Two people were injured in a three-vehicle collision at the intersection of Broadway and Cherokee on Sunday morning.

Pennington's vehicle then struck a 2002 Buick operated by Robert Netherland of Campbellsville. Netherland's vehicle was stopped at a traffic light.

  • Helping Hands

  • County budget down nearly $600,000

    Taylor County will operate with about $600,000 less this fiscal year than last, even though the County now keeps all of its occupational tax receipts.

    The County's 2009-2010 nearly $8.4 million budget was unanimously given second reading Tuesday morning at a special meeting.

  • Student's art earns him a trip to Washington

    This past school year, freshman Jon Baker took an art class not knowing what to expect. Having never had any art experience before, Baker will soon begin his sophomore year at Campbellsville High School with two contest wins.

    Earlier in the year, Baker, 15, won a drug and alcohol abuse awareness contest. But the big win came just three weeks ago when he learned that a Greek vase collage he did in class earned him a trip to Washington D.C.
