  • Something to smile about

    It's often the most difficult part of being a reporter - finagling someone into allowing me to photograph them.

    And I can understand the feeling of not wanting some stranger to take a photograph of me. After all, isn't one of the best parts of being a reporter that you are the one taking the photos and not in them?

    I read recently that the Bureau of Motor Vehicles in Indiana is changing its rules for driver's license photos, and people will no longer be allowed to smile when getting or renewing their licenses. They also won't be able to wear a hat, scarf or even glasses.

  • Sharing the magic of Christmas

    Fire and Rescue personnel spent much of Monday morning buying and sorting through the last of the Toys for Tots and Toys for Kids requests.

    There were 640 requests for toys this year, which are served by Campbellsville/Taylor County Rescue or the Campbellsville/Taylor County Fire Departments.

    Rescue oversees the Toys for Tots program, which will serve 256 kids this year. The fire departments oversee Toys for Kids, which will serve 384 kids.

    The toys were delivered to local children on Christmas Eve.

  • Above and Beyond

    Campbellsville University freshman Alexander Nima Violet frequently seeks the quiet of Green River Lake State Park as a place to study.

    On the night of Sept. 25, he was on his way back to campus at around 9 p.m. when he became the first on the scene of a collision between a car and van.

    "The car caught on fire," Violet said, "and I immediately pulled into a safe zone and got the first aid kit from the trunk."
