  • Jobless graduates wonder why

    Laura Edwards thought she was starting her job search too soon. After all, it was January and she wasn't set to graduate until July. She soon discovered she might have started too late.

    "It's discouraging," said Edwards, who received her degree in business administration from Campbellsville University.

    "There are not that many opportunities around here. Everything I've applied for, they either had someone in mind or someone's [family member] was taking the job."

  • Priceless memories

    Only my daughter, Laura, has the power to get me to eat a raw quail egg. We did so last Thursday night at our favorite sushi restaurant in Charlotte, N.C., where she lives. I was in town for a conference.

    It's been five years since she moved away from home, and I think I've finally, finally, finally (maybe) stopped thinking of her as some wild feral child who needs me hovering over her, guiding her every move, breath, decision and thought.

    She's 25 now, making more money than I am, finishing her fifth year of a two-year college, dating a guy who treats her well.

  • City Schools approve tax rate

    Staff Report

    Campbellsville Independent Schools will see a bit more money this year from property taxes.

    Pending a public hearing next month, School Board members last week approved a 4 percent increase in the District's rate for real and personal property, as it has done each year as long as anyone on the Board can remember.

    According to Finance Director Gayle Newton, the rate will generate an additional $66,130 this coming year.

  • Hospital gift shop now offers fresh floral arrangements

    The Taylor Regional Hospital Gift Shop recently acquired a new floral cooler and now offers fresh flower arrangements for sale in the gift shop for patients, families and guests.

    The cooler was made possible by the efforts of the TRH team members, by holding a bake sale and a basket auction. The basket auction was so successful that the hospital was able to donate part of the proceeds to the Taylor County, Campbellsville and Green County school systems backpack programs and still have enough money to purchase the cooler.
