  • The long-distance grandparent

    "The conscious mind allows itself to be trained like a parrot, but the unconscious does not - which is why St. Augustine thanked God for not making him responsible for his dreams."

    - Carl Gustav Jung,

    Psychology of Alchemy

    I know it's a little deep coming from a dog, but being Catholic by osmosis I thought St. Augustine might awaken me to the realization that I need to be more responsible when I'm asleep. I'm certainly not while awake.

    I think our food tray may have been spiked with Holy Water.

    Tobacco growers will get a raise after all, but it's not the victory many were hoping for.

  • CES begins principal search

    A sea of Derby hats fills Campbellsville Elementary School's multipurpose room Friday.

  • Hide your prescription drugs

    Last year, the News-Journal published a story about the results of the latest Kentucky Incentives for Prevention survey of local students.

    The survey results showed that prescription drug abuse is on the rise with teenagers. As a matter of fact, according to Karen Hayes with the Campbellsville/Taylor County Anti-Drug Coalition, one in every four teens uses prescription drugs to get high.

    No wonder Kentucky leads the nation in prescription drug abuse.
