  • Don't blame others when it's our own fault

    Sometimes, we just don't know what's good for us. But when things go wrong, it's sure easy to blame someone other than ourselves.

    A story on today's front page details a problem local officials are facing with residents and their house numbers.

    Logically, one would think that posting a house number on one's home would be a no-brainer. But apparently not everyone is thinking logically.

  • By the numbers

    Four letters have been mailed but no fines have been issued since an ordinance requiring house numbers to be posted went into effect on Oct. 1.

    "The ones that we have sent letters to have put numbers up," said Bonnie Childers, Campbellsville/Taylor County E-911 address coordinator. "Everyone has been really good about putting the numbers up."

    The ordinance allows any home, business or rental property owner who doesn't have address numbers posted so they are visible from the road to be fined up to $100.
