  • He is definitely 'one of ours'

    Many of us can remember listening to Everette Lee, one of the founders of Campbellsville's Fourth of July Celebration, remark on Main Street during opening ceremonies: "They're one of ours," when introducing someone being honored.

  • Cancer will change one's life forever

    The "c" word is one no one wants to hear.

    It changes your life, and the lives of your friends, family and perhaps everyone who comes into contact with you.

    After interviewing the Payne family (see today's front page story), I began thinking of how cancer has impacted my life.

    Three of my four grandparents have had some form of cancer. Today, only one of those grandparents is still living.

  • Wishes really do come true

    It began with what appeared to be a pulled muscle. It ended with a trip to Hawaii. Tyler Payne, 17, has battled a rare form of bone cancer that affects children ages 11-16 for more than two years.

    "They thought he got hurt when we went camping," his mother, Debbie Payne, said.

    Tyler underwent a series of X-rays and other tests, but none seemed to solve his problems, which started with some swelling in his right knee.

    "The pulled muscle didn't go away," Tyler's father, T.J., said.
