    Thanksgiving Thanks

    Hi, my name is Makayla Dicken.  I am a third grader at Kentucky Christian School.  I wanted to share how I am thankful and blessed.

  • That "holiday" kinda feelin'

    It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas .... as evidenced by the crowds at Saturday’s Homemaker Bazaar and Taylor County Arts & Crafts Festival.

    Above are photos taken at both events over the weekend.

  • Officials say diabetes cases increasing

    Its presence is increasing, local officials say, but the disease is manageable and there is help available for those who need it.

    Diabetes is a medical condition that keeps a person's body from processing sugar normally, according to Taylor County Health Department RN and Diabetes Educator Donnetta Tungate. If sugars don't get to a person's cells, she says, it just stays in the bloodstream, resulting in a high sugar level.

  • It's our duty to help those less fortunate

    Our community does an outstanding job of celebrating and decorating this time of year. School plays, church choirs, parades and celebrations are popping up all around us. All we have to do is pay attention.

    With all the activities at hand, we'd be hard pressed not to close our eyes and hear the jingle of sleigh bells and the Ho-Ho-Ho of that bearded gentleman from the north.

    But let's not forget the true meaning of Christmas as we make our rounds during this holiday season.

  • Tell Santa what you want

    Jolly Old St. Nick. Mr. Claus. St. Nicholas. All are synonyms for Santa Claus, the man who brings magic to children all over the world each year at Christmastime.

    Each year when Letters to Santa start arriving at the Central Kentucky News-Journal’s office, we are touched by the poignancy and trust expressed in children’s letters.

  • Why do we publish stories, photos?

    Someone asked me recently why we publish details and photos from fatal crashes, fires and other tragedies.

    That's certainly a fair question. It's also one that I'm sure has been debated in newsrooms around the world. For that reason, I believe such a question deserves what I hope is a thoughtful and considerate answer.

  • One injured in Spurlington Road crash
