  • Grace Notes

    Today I scrubbed my kitchen floor, on my knees with a bucket of sudsy water and a brush, "Cinderella-style."

    After that I polished all the stainless steel and rubbed the countertops with stuff that made them gleam. Then I vacuumed all the wayward popcorn from underneath the couch cushions and cleaned both bathrooms.

    When I finally sat down with my can of diet ginger ale, it hit me how good it felt to work with my whole body.

    The scrubbing motion stretched my tight back and polishing the stainless steel until I could see my reflection made me smile.

    A committee appointed to recommend a name for the street running alongside the Taylor County Judicial Center has suggested Justice Center Drive.

    At last Monday's regular Campbellsville City Council meeting, the Council approved the suggestion, with Councilwoman Patti Phillips casting the lone "No" vote. Phillips said she voted no because former Councilwoman Frances Clinkscales was one of the suggestions discussed at previous Council meetings. Mayor Brenda Allen said the City is looking for another street to name in honor of the late councilwoman.
