    History came to life last Friday, at least for 27 people.

    Greater Campbellsville United sponsored an African American Heritage Driving Tour, which took participants to many nearby black historical sites.

    According to GCU coordinator Wanda Washington, the tour identifies 62 historic locations in Taylor and Green counties.

    Participants boarded a bus at Elmhurst Shopping Center and traveled Taylor County for about two hours.

    Washington said she was pleased with the crowd that attended, though the bus was only half full.

  • County says no to tax agreement

    Unless something changes before June 30, Taylor Fiscal Court will keep all of the occupational tax money it currently shares with the City.

    That means the City will be short about $1.2 million.

    Taylor Fiscal Court voted down a new interlocal agreement with the City of Campbellsville at a special meeting last week. And Campbellsville City Council members will meet tonight to discuss how they will respond.

    Bond was set at 10 percent of $25,000. If convicted, Wilson could be sentenced to as much as 10 years in prison.

  • What's the word, teens?

    We're going to find out why so many teenagers are reading the Twilight saga.

    At Sunday's meeting of the CKNJ Bookmarks reading group, we discussed our last book choice, a set of two novellas, "Dinner With a Perfect Stranger" and "A Day With a Perfect Stranger." The books were an easy read, first-person accounts of two young skeptics who encounter Jesus, and his answers to their most challenging and most personal life questions.

    Some of us liked the books, and others didn't.

  • Breaking up is hard to do

    "9-1-1 ... Where is your emergency?"

    "My husband is having a heart attack, please send an ambulance immediately."

    "Oh, I'm sorry, apparently you live outside the City limits. We can't help you."

    Are the City and County in a mess, or what? And the worse part of all is that we can't say we weren't warned.

  • Got blog?

    Truly, when God created the 24-hour day he did not factor in blogging.
