  • One child becomes the designated caretaker

    If parents are unable to fulfill their roles in the family, then one of the children usually steps in. The parents may be unable to do the job of parenting for a variety of reasons: alcoholism, illness, drug abuse, physical or verbal abuse, depression, anxiety and absences from the family.

    Often (but not always) the oldest female child will fill this role. She becomes the designated caretaker both for the younger children and possibly for Mom and Dad as well.

    While the following characters are fictitious, the stories reflect a real situation for many children.

  • Four charged in sealed indictments

    Four Campbellsville residents have been indicted on drug and other charges in indictments recently unsealed by a Taylor Circuit Court judge.

    Indicted were:

    - Jeff Bonar, 42, of 301 Kerr St. was indicted on a charge of second-degree selling codeine.

    Bond was set at $15,000 cash. If convicted, Bonar could be sentenced to as much as five years in prison.

    And much of it was free.

    At a time when money is tight, that's a plus for everyone.

    Our hats are off to CU homecoming organizers. We hope next year is even better.

    Iraq will take a back seat to the economy, while promises of "political change" will ultimately drive Kentucky voters this November.

    Pollsters and political analysts predict the state will again be "red" this November.
