  • Welcome to my MTM world

    Once upon a time, I wanted to be Mary Tyler Moore. Not the real MTM, but rather, I wanted to be Mary Richards, the character she played on her television show in the 1970s.

    As a high school girl in the throes of some serious teen angst, I'd daydream about working in a newsroom, living in my own cute apartment, surrounding myself with quirky-yet-lovable coworkers and friends.

    Actually, all that is true of my life now, with the exception of the apartment. I own a villa and share it with a quirky-yet-lovable husband.

  • Bethel to host annual Thanksgiving dinner

    Thanksgiving is about being thankful - and giving. And one local church spends the Thanksgiving holiday doing both.

    The dinner is free. It is for those in need, for those who are alone, or for those who would just like to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with others.

  • Taylor scores many ways in 45-30 Hart triumph

    Taylor County High School rushed for two touchdowns, passed for three more, ran an interception back for a score and kicked six extra points and a field goal in downing visiting Hart County 45-30 on Thursday night.

    While it was a week later than Senior Night, it was 12th graders who shined brightly during the Cardinals' sixth win of the season.

    Leonard Macon tallied three touchdowns, two receiving and one rushing, while accumulating 249 of TCHS' 456 total yards.

  • Community newspapers still on top

    Newspaper readership is down. That's certainly no secret with the downsizing going on at many of the large metropolitan newspapers across the country. However, community newspapers are still in large demand, and we're not looking for that to change anytime soon.

    Sure, we see Lexington and Louisville television news channel reporters in town occasionally. But do we see them here on a regular basis? What about the state newspapers?

    Of course not. They only show up when "big" news occurs ... and even then it's usually only for "bad" news.

  • Patriots hold off CU Tigers 34-27

    Campbellsville University dug holes of 14-0 and 34-14 and could not overcome the deficits in dropping a 34-27 football decision to eighth-rated Cumberlands on Saturday.

    Greg Fountain continued his stellar season with 148 rushing yards and two touchdowns while freshman Ross Deaton passed for 233 yards and two fourth-quarter scores.

    Tyler Guess and Jacob Wallace paced the CU defense with 18 and 12 tackles, respectively, while Dwight Houston and Trapper Williams had nine hits apiece.
