  • 1974 grad still enjoying coaching success

    Just to show how old I and the class of 1974 are getting, there wasn't a girls' basketball team when we graduated in 1974.

    The sport which was halted decades earlier (matter of fact Sue Smith's mother was a stand-out) started back again for the 1974-75 campaign.

    At least one local young lady didn't get a chance to display her skills while still in high school.

    She did go on to play at Western Kentucky University and probably goes down as one of the best female athletes ever produced in Taylor County.

  • Man indicted after shooting at police

    The Campbellsville man shot by police after he allegedly fired a weapon at them has been indicted on charges of attempted murder and wanton endangerment.

    Adam Douglas Powell, 22, of 506 Woodlawn Ave. was indicted Tuesday by a Taylor County grand jury.

    According to a Kentucky State Police report, the charges stem from an altercation on March 29.

    The report states Campbellsville Police received a 911 call about a domestic situation involving weapons at 506 Woodlawn Ave.

  • National Day of Prayer is Thursday

    National Day of Prayer is Thursday and a group will meet from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m. on the Taylor County Courthouse steps to pray and sing together.

    The event will be one of several around the nation offering inspirational music and prayer for those who gather.

    All of those who attend will receive an "I Prayed" sticker and a balloon launch will follow the ceremony.

    The event is sponsored by Bible Baptist Tabernacle.

    For more information, call 465-3015.

  • Little old ladies need piece of mind

    But even Granny Clampett needed help sometimes.

    Mom has lived in a nearby town in the same house on a corner lot since 1959. Three children, nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren later, she finds her peace in the flower beds that surround her residence.

    That peace was disrupted several weeks ago as temperatures warmed.

    Sitting around her kitchen table one Sunday after church, she explained (complained really) that her side yard has been invaded. She didn't say specifically, but I think she wanted me to do something about it.

  • Survey asks readers about their reading, shopping habits

    The Central Kentucky News-Journal is conducting a local Internet reader survey to help determine reading and shopping habits.

    Readers will be asked what they like to read, what they don't and their evaluation of what they do read.

    And as an incentive, participants will be entered in a drawing for up to $3,000.

  • Public Record for April 28

    Small Claims Filed

    08-S-033, filed 4/17/08; Lebanon Family Dental Care of South Proctor Knott Avenue in Lebanon v. Libby Wilson of Twin Creek Drive in Campbellsville. Plaintiff alleges defendant owes for dental services rendered, $230.52 and $91 in court costs.

    Small Claims Settled

  • Helping Food Pantry helps everyone

    "But just as you excel in everything - in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us[a] - see that you also excel in this grace of giving."

    -2 Corinthians 8:7

    There are many worthy causes in the community, but it would seem logical that the issue of children not having enough to eat should rank near the top of the list.

    If the Taylor County Food Pantry is just four weeks away from halting service due to a lack of funding, then it's obvious families in the community are going hungry - and it's going to do nothing but get worse.

  • Making History

    A few years ago, Sue Smith was having some work done on the High Street home she and her husband Willard share. When workers removed the fireplace mantel, they discovered a note that had been tucked between the mantel and the wall.

    "It said the mantel was built in 1926," Mrs. Smith said.

    She knew her home had been built some years ago, but, now, it seemed she had proof.

    Today, Smith knows the history of not only her home but several of her neighbors' homes as well.

  • Campbellsville University orchestra

    The Campbellsville University orchestra will present a spring concert on Thursday at 8 p.m. at Campbellsville Baptist Church. Dr. J. Robert Gaddis, dean of the school of music and professor of music, will conduct the orchestra. Above, Gaddis conducts practice sessions as students prepare.

  • Celebrating Earth Day

    Area children learned how to plant flowers last week at the Taylor County Public Library's Earth Day celebration.

    Stories and crafts pertaining to Earth Day, along with refreshments, were available.

    The library is now open until 8 p.m. each Tuesday and Thursday. For more information, call Bonnie Webster at 465-2562.
