  • Teens spread message about dangers of tobacco use in PSAs

    Taylor County Middle School students are sending a message to their peers: "Smoking isn't cool."

    Students in and around the Lake Cumberland region are spreading the news about the dangers of tobacco use through public service announcements they recorded earlier this month while at a regional tobacco conference in Somerset.

    The Center for Rural Development partnered with 16 sponsors to bring the conference, part of a statewide movement called HOT - Helping Overcome Tobacco - to this region of the state.

  • J.B. gives us all something to cheer about

    The collective whoops of approval in living rooms around Taylor County must have surely raised the community decibel level on Super Bowl Sunday.

    But it wasn't a football game we were juiced about.

    J.B. Holmes won his second FBR Open in Scottsdale, Ariz. about 20 minutes before the Giants-New England kickoff in Phoenix. That's when his 7-foot-long putt found the bottom of the cup and a gut-wrenching playoff victory over tour veteran Phil Mickelson.

    Way to go, J.B.!
