  • Opposition forms against nickel tax

    A petition opposing Taylor County School Board's approval of a recallable nickel tax is now being circulated door to door.

    According to state law, a committee of five people must administer the petition opposing the recallable nickel. The committee must file an affidavit with the county clerk. The committee filed its paperwork on Friday. However, committee members had to refile Tuesday after Roger Bright resigned. Taylor County Clerk Mark Carney said the change is legal.

  • Don't measure progress on Mondays

    Do you ever have those days when you wonder why you got out of bed? Monday was one of those days for me.

    It all started while I was making breakfast. First, I burned my hand on my stovetop espresso maker. No big deal, I thought. At least it woke me up. Then, I burned my pancakes. I ate 'em anyway. They were still better than those frozen things.

    When I got to work, later than usual and I'm not sure how that happened, things got worse.

    Lexi Derringer is only 3 years old, but she is one tough cookie.

    From the day she was born prematurely at 29 weeks, she has been fighting to live. She spent the first two months of her life at Kosair Hospital, and she's there again. Only this time, she has cancer.

    She was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia, known as ALL, on Friday, Nov. 13. Friday the 13th is widely known as an unlucky day, but for Lexi's parents, Kevin and Christy Derringer of Campbellsville, that day was a nightmare.

    Thanks to several new tax credits, some taxpayers could be smiling instead of cringing after filing their taxes this year.

    The deadline to file income taxes is April 15 and, according to local tax preparers, those who haven't yet filed should be on the lookout for new credits.

  • Grace Notes: Faith that takes a licking

    I spent most of last Sunday afternoon in my recliner chair reading about an overweight, out of shape guy who decided to go to Peru and hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

    He did it because he wanted to impress a girl who was also going on the trip. When he learned how strenuous the trip would be, because he didn't want to weenie out in front of the girl, he started working out.

    A few months ago I joined a new gym, which is challenging me physically. I'm not training for a hike or anything, just a healthier life.
