  • Campbellsville man arrested attempting break-in

    Campbellsville Police have arrested a local man who was attempting to break into a convenience store through the building's roof.

    According to a Campbellsville Police report, at 12:24 a.m. on Thursday, police received a call from a Convenient Food Mart clerk who reported noises coming from the roof of the store.

  • Special Delivery

    He sits alone in his motorized chair, waiting for his daily visitor. The door opens and the visitor walks inside, carrying a blue box with a warm meal inside.

    "Mr. Page, now you know I won't be here tomorrow," the man says. "But I'll be back on Monday."

    The Taylor County Senior Citizens Center Meals on Wheels program delivers meals daily to 19 Taylor County residents.

    Lawrence Page, who is confined to a wheelchair, is one of them. Norman Johnson, who is legally blind, is another.

  • City superintendent deadline closes

    The number of applicants vying to be the next superintendent of Campbellsville Independent Schools will be announced today.

    The deadline to apply for the position was Friday. However, said Frank Kidwell, who is serving as the Campbellsville Independent School Board's facilitator in the search, the Board could still accept applications that were postmarked on Friday.

  • Time for a little house cleaning

    As spring approaches, many consider it the perfect time for house cleaning. Because of that, I figure it's time to clear a few items out of our closet that appear to be causing some problems.

    Item No. 1

    We wasted taxpayer money last week. At least, that's what Judge/Executive Eddie Rogers tells us.

  • CU to host contemporary China event

    Campbellsville University will host a Kentucky Heartland Institute on Public Policy forum titled "Contemporary China - Its Growing Military and Economic Power" on Thursday, March 5 in the banquet hall of the Student Union Building at 5 p.m.

    The forum is free and open to the public.

  • Change can be a good thing ... sometimes

    Change can be a good thing. At least sometimes.

    Changing the look of downtown Campbellsville is definitely a good thing. We can’t help but wonder if a few of the changes planned for streetscape and beautification don’t necessarily fall into the “sometimes” category.

    New, handicapped-accessible sidewalks and walking paths are definitely a plus. Closing the main entrance to the library parking lot, though, we’re not as sure about.

  • Documentary is a call for action

    The ABC documentary “A Hidden America: Children of the Mountains” and its short follow-up stirred a lot of talk in Central Appalachia this month. But what action will ensue? That is the question the people of the region, and their journalists, need to answer.

     

  • Finally took the 'Twilight' plunge

    It's really just a love story, and that's something we can all - adults and teens alike - enjoy reading.

    It just so happens, however, that the love story is laced in between a lengthy series of good versus bad vampire battles, sagas of werewolves who fight with those vampires and fall in love with humans and some very bad vampires from far away who want to do lots and lots of harm to the good vampires.

    I, like so many others, have gotten swept up in the "Twilight" fanfare.

  • The rest of the story

    Remember this name: Mordecai Ham. I'll tell you at the end who he is.

    Meanwhile, let me tell you about Phil Munsey, a guy I heard on the radio the other day. He wrote a book last year called "Legacy Now: Why Everything About You Matters."

    The point of his book is that big or small, everything in our lives matters and everything we do has eternal consequences.
