  • Band students ahead of the pack

    It's with a heavy heart that I write this column and reveal something I never thought I would ever say publicly.

    I'm a proud alumna of the Campbellsville High School Marching Band and both enjoyed and dreaded my years of participation with the school's concert, jazz, pep and marching ensembles.

    But I have to say that I'm proud of the Taylor County High School Marching Cardinals this marching season and enjoy hearing the familiar echo of their instruments when leaving the News-Journal office.

  • Man pleads guilty to lesser charges

    A Campbellsville man has pleaded guilty to amended charges stemming from a rape and sodomy allegation, but he may not spend any time in prison.

    Everette Ray Fair, 22, of 112 Ray St. appeared before Taylor Circuit Court Judge Allan Bertram on Wednesday in Marion County.

    According to court records, Fair was indicted in March 2006 on two counts of first-degree sodomy and two counts of first-degree rape. He had been accused of digitally penetrating a 4-year-old boy and forcing the boy to perform oral sex on four occasions in 2002.

  • Why ethics should matter to Congress

    Congress will never regain the faith of ordinary Americans until members of Congress win their trust. This appears to be a long way off.

    I see no other way to read the results of a recent poll by the Center on Congress at Indiana University. When it asked 1,000 people whether members of Congress are "honest people of good character," a rather stunning 42 percent said that most are not. Asked to grade Congress on holding its members to high ethical standards, 75 percent gave it either a D or an F.

    The play, which mixes comedy and drama with political history, will be performed Oct. 2-4 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 5 at 2 p.m. in the University Theater.
