    Let me first say that it has been heartening to see communities across Kentucky pull together to help those in need following the devastating windstorm that swept across our state on Sept. 14.

  • Council discusses street names, trick or treat hours

    In a brief regular meeting Monday night, Campbellsville City Council members set trick or treat hours and discussed naming streets in honor of three Taylor Countians.

    In approving a resolution to name a street Emily Cox Drive in honor of 2008 Miss Kentucky Emily Cox, Councilman Stan McKinney also suggested naming streets in honor of pro-golfer J.B. Holmes and late Councilwoman Frances Clinkscales.

  • Public notices belong in newspapers

    What it really comes down to is osmosis.You remember osmosis, don't you? In high school science, you learned that's the process that lets stuff pass through the membrane that surrounds your cells. Osmosis lets the good stuff in and the bad stuff out, trading spent fuel for new fuel. It keeps you alive.

    The funny thing about osmosis (other than the name) is that it's automatic. There's no conscious thought involved. That's why if you get stranded at sea, like Tom Hanks in Castaway, you mustn't drink seawater, even if you're dying of thirst.
