    TEN YEARS AGO

     March 3, 2005

  • Digging out

    With each slash of the snow shovel, I freed up one more inch of space, making room for my garage door to open so I could determine if I could drive out.

    In less time than I thought it would take, (and more back pain than I anticipated) I was ready to put the car in reverse and attempt a test run down my driveway. "Yes," I breathed a sigh of relief as I successfully made it to the street in front of my house, "freedom."

    The fear of being trapped inside the house dissipated, at least for the moment, for more snow was in the forecast.

  • Wise's legislation on KEES money passes

    The focus in the Senate last week and the days ahead will be on receiving and vetting many House bills while we continue to work on our own legislation.

  • Keep your butts in the car!

     

    We've all seen it as we drive down the road; a person in the car in front of us flicks a small object out of their window, and it falls to the ground, hardly visible.

    We drive on and, most times, we probably don't think about it again.

    The object is a cigarette butt, and we've all seen it. Do we call 911 and report someone for littering? No, of course not. It's just a cigarette butt.

  • Local singer performs on TV show 'The Voice'

     

    Hannah Ellis started singing before she could even talk.

    And that was just the beginning.

    At age 11, she entered her first singing contest. By 13, she knew what she wanted to do for the rest of her life.
    She wanted to sing.

    “It was something I have always been really passionate about,” Ellis said. “Why would I not pursue the one thing I enjoy doing more than anything else and make that a career?”

  • Weather damages local roads

    The plowing and salting during the recent snowstorm resulted in many potholes, and with more snow hitting this week, there will likely be more, Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young said at Monday's city council meeting.

    He went on to say there will have to be more road repairs later on, adding that they've already used half of their salt supply.

    Young admitted that four snowplows weren't adequate for the almost 2 feet of snow that recently hit the county. However, he believed the city was ready for the snow that was predicted.

  • How did that traffic light get put there?

     

    Since their invention in the 1910s, electric traffic lights have become ubiquitous on city streets. It's hard to imagine automobile traffic without them.

    The first traffic light in Taylor County was put up on old Main Street. The most recent traffic light was put up at the intersection of Ky. 3183 and Ky. 3350, or the Campbellsville Bypass, just off of Ky. 210, in November 2007. New traffic signals are being planned for the proposed Heartland Bypass.

  • 1 Route Highway to perform March 20

     

    Chris Burch and several other local musicians formed a Christian rock group called 1 Route Highway in August and are looking forward to their first full concerts later this year.

    "We're a band made out of five college students," Burch said. "I'd already had a vision of maybe doing a band, and one of my friends inspired me to get something together."
