  • Bank e-mails are hoaxes

    Campbellsville Police are warning residents about fake e-mails claiming to be from local banks.

    Campbellsville Police Chief Dennis Benningfield said that several local banks have contacted police about the e-mails.

    The e-mails ask bank customers to update their account information by clicking on a link. If the customer does this, identity thieves can then intercept their account information as they enter it.

    This type of scam is known as "Phishing."

    Benningfield said residents should disregard the e-mails.

  • A new wrinkle on aging

    It's Monday, April 14, 2008. On this date 60 years ago, Momma lay down her washboard long enough to give birth to a future keyboarder.

    Apparently, a lot of other mommas across America were doing the same thing. They say some 330 of us Baby Boomers turn 60 every hour.

    You may not realize how close some of us came to not being here at all.

    A.C. Kinsey came out with a book, "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male" in 1948. Some days I've wished it had been published in 1947, and Momma had gotten hold of a copy.

    With graduation just around the corner, many high school seniors are thinking about college and financial aid.

    While there are a number of options for seniors and their parents to learn about the various forms of financial assistance available, Taylor County High School Guidance Counselor Dana Young encourages students to talk to their counselors or someone at the college of their choice.

  • Screening at Green River Lake Dam to begin next week

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will begin exploratory drilling at Green River Lake Dam this next week.

    The drilling will continue throughout the spring and into the summer.

    The Corps of Engineers annually inspects its reservoir dams, with a more thorough inspection occurring every five years. A recent screening of Green River Lake Dam determined that additional screening was necessary to assess the current condition of the 40-year-old dam. Soil and rock samples will be taken of the area for laboratory testing.
