  • This holiday season, remember the importance of drug labels

    These days, getting the entire family around the same table is a rarity. That's why the holiday season is a perfect time to sit down with loved ones and talk about the many issues that too often go ignored.

    One issue that's worthy of discussion? The importance of reading drug labels.

    Americans today have access to more cutting-edge pharmaceuticals than ever before. But medicines carry risks. Failing to pay attention to a drug's label - by taking more than the recommended dosage or mixing with the wrong medicines - can lead to serious side effects.

  • What is Christmas?

    Husbands go out and hang enough lights and decorations to make even Clark Griswold jealous. Parents get to threaten kids with the absence of Santa if they don't behave. Overpriced poinsettias are the top floral arrangements, and the movie "A Christmas Story" is played 24/7 until February.

    Yes, it's time for Christmas.

  • Police urge caution during holiday season

    It may be the time of year for giving, but some use it to take.

    Police are warning Taylor County residents to take simple precautions to prevent becoming victims of thefts, burglaries and robberies - crimes that traditionally increase this time of year.

    "Statistically, most of these crimes occur between December and February," said Campbellsville Police Chief Dennis Benningfield. "That's because people generally have more money on them or are away from home more."

  • 'One Call Now' updated

    Taylor Countians with caller ID will now know when they receive a call from Campbellsville/Taylor County's emergency alert system.

    Before, calls appeared on caller IDs as out-of-town calls. Dooley said many people mistook them as telemarketers and did not take the calls.
