  • Campbellsville woman charged in sealed indictment

    A Campbellsville woman has been charged with selling cocaine in two indictments recently unsealed by a Taylor Circuit Court judge.

    A grand jury may seal an indictment if there is a possibility that the accused will try to evade police.

    Sarah Holmes, 25, of 98 Tharp Drive was charged in two separate indictments on two counts of first-degree selling cocaine.

    Bond in each case was set at $15,000 cash. If convicted in both cases, Holmes could be sentenced to as much as 20 years in prison.

    - An indictment is a legal accusation only. It does not establish guilt.

  • Maybe paper ballots will be better?

    As a story on last Thursday's front page explains, the County has approved the use of paper ballots for the November General Election. Federal money pays for voting machines, and counties can choose the system that works best for them.

    Taylor Fiscal Court has approved the purchase of machines that will scan paper ballots - ballots a lot like those we used years ago.
