  • Make your voice heard

    Everyone has opinions. We express ours quite often in this very space.

    But opinions mean nothing if they are not shared. And right now, ideas are needed.

    On June 15, state lawmakers will reconvene in Frankfort to address a projected budget deficit of $1 billion. The governor has a plan to cut $200 million, a plan some lawmakers say will actually gain plenty of support on House and Senate floors. He's also added the possibility of slot machines at Kentucky racetracks to the agenda.

  • BREAKING NEWS: Council approves 1 percent occupational tax

    Campbellsville City Council approved a 1 percent occupational tax during a special meeting Wednesday.

    Saying the previously discussed rate of .75 percent would not be enough to meet City expenses, Councilman David Nunery made a motion to increase the rate to 1 percent.

    The Council vote ended in a tie, forcing Mayor Brenda Allen to cast the tie-breaking "yes" vote.

    Allen said the City has barely met payroll for the last three months. A rate of .75 percent would not improve the City's finances.
