  • Bethel to host annual Thanksgiving dinner

    Thanksgiving is about being thankful - and giving. And one local church spends the Thanksgiving holiday doing both.

    For many years now, Bethel First Presbyterian Church has hosted a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for the community. And many volunteers from all over the community come together to help.

    The dinner is free. It is for those in need, for those who are alone, or for those who would just like to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with others.

    The traditional meal will be served in the church's fellowship hall from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

  • Taylor scores many ways in 45-30 Hart triumph

    Taylor County High School rushed for two touchdowns, passed for three more, ran an interception back for a score and kicked six extra points and a field goal in downing visiting Hart County 45-30 on Thursday night.

    While it was a week later than Senior Night, it was 12th graders who shined brightly during the Cardinals' sixth win of the season.

    Leonard Macon tallied three touchdowns, two receiving and one rushing, while accumulating 249 of TCHS' 456 total yards.

  • Community newspapers still on top

    Newspaper readership is down. That's certainly no secret with the downsizing going on at many of the large metropolitan newspapers across the country. However, community newspapers are still in large demand, and we're not looking for that to change anytime soon.

    Sure, we see Lexington and Louisville television news channel reporters in town occasionally. But do we see them here on a regular basis? What about the state newspapers?

    Of course not. They only show up when "big" news occurs ... and even then it's usually only for "bad" news.

  • Patriots hold off CU Tigers 34-27

    Campbellsville University dug holes of 14-0 and 34-14 and could not overcome the deficits in dropping a 34-27 football decision to eighth-rated Cumberlands on Saturday.

    Greg Fountain continued his stellar season with 148 rushing yards and two touchdowns while freshman Ross Deaton passed for 233 yards and two fourth-quarter scores.

    Tyler Guess and Jacob Wallace paced the CU defense with 18 and 12 tackles, respectively, while Dwight Houston and Trapper Williams had nine hits apiece.

  • Now it's time for the work to begin

    The voters have spoken. And isn't that what an election is all about? And more local voters participated in last week's election than ever before - 10,997 or 65 percent of us.

    Even though Taylor Countians overwhelmingly supported Republican John McCain, history has been made with the election of the nation's first black president - Barack Obama.

  • Football play-off scenario update

    While Campbellsville High School knows its first-round play-off opponent (Fairview at home on Nov. 14), it could be around midnight tomorrow before Taylor County knows what's happening with the Cardinals' post-season plans.

    Heading into the final regular-season games, TCHS (13) trails Wayne County (16) and leads Somerset (12) in the three-way Class 3A, Region 5 tie-breaker.

    The Cardinals own wins over Hart County (4), Garrard County (4), Campbellsville (3) and Casey County (2).

  • Central Kentucky Arts Series

    A nearly full house was on hand Monday night for a performance by the Southern Illinois University Choir under the direction of Dr. Susan Davenport.

    The third performance of the Central Kentucky Arts Series' 2008-2009 season took place at First United Methodist Church.

  • No. 1 team comes to town

    Pre-season No. 1-rated Union (Tenn.) University used first-half streaks of 5-0, 9-0, 8-0 and 9-2 to build a 10-point half-time cushion and rolled to a 79-52 triumph over Campbellsville University's Lady Tigers in the Powell Athletic Center on Tuesday night.

    Two Alexia Williams three-pointers kept CU close in the first half while treys by Juliana Brown and Kristi Ensminger and two buckets by Courtney Dandis in the second half preceded the Lady Dogs' 12-1 run to finish the game.

    The Lady Tigers host Robert Morris tomorrow at 7 p.m.

    Campbellsville, Ky.
