  • Take time to give thanks

    Giving thanks is what the approaching Thanksgiving season is all about. But sometimes it's more difficult to do that than it should be.

    We all have much for which we should be thankful. But how often do we express our appreciation?

    If you're like me, then it's not often enough.

    You see, it's too easy to complain ... Who forgot to empty the dishwasher? Whose turn was it to feed the dogs? The laundry is piling up, the garbage needs taking out, the car needs vacuuming, the kids' bedrooms are a disaster ... I could go on and on.

  • Fire damages vacant house

    The Campbellsville/Taylor County Fire Department responded to a house fire Monday at 409 S. Jackson St. at nearly midnight that caused extensive damage to the home.

  • Next arts series event is Oct. 27

    The performance is co-sponsored by the Kentucky Music Teachers Association, which will be hosting its annual conference at Campbellsville University during the same weekend.

  • Learning about fire prevention

    Ceondre Barnett can hardly see. He was sound asleep when the sound of a smoke alarm woke him up. Now his room is filled with smoke. He gets out of bed and drops to the floor, crawling toward his bedroom door. Seeing smoke pouring into his room from under his door, he grabs a towel he had left on his floor and stuffs it under the door. He then runs to a window, opens it and calls for help.

    While that scenario may have only been a part of Campbellsville Fire Department's annual fire prevention exercises, it certainly could have been real.

  • Domestic violence numbers up

    They had been dating for three months, and there hadn't been any sign of violence between them - until they went to a party.

    People were drinking, and the situation got out of control.

    "He beat her," Heather Barnes, Taylor County victims' advocate in County Attorney Craig Cox's office, said. "He beat her face until it became unrecognizable."

    The scenario is the true story of one of Barnes' most recent clients, one of many Taylor County residents she has helped escape an abusive situation.

  • Full slate for 4th District magistrate's seat

    Several will vie in next month's General Election for the 4th District Magistrate seat vacated by Marshall Caulk.

    Caulk resigned in March, citing health reasons. A month later, Kenneth Minor was appointed by Gov. Steve Beshear to fill Caulk's position until the November General Election.
