  • Local officials see benefits from constables

    A bill that a northern Kentucky Republican filed would allow counties to abolish the constable position, and would allow cities to keep constables from trying to enforce the law within city limits.

    But locally, officials are less than enthusiastic. Taylor County Judge/Executive Eddie Rogers says constables still serve a purpose in Taylor County.

    “A lot of the constables work at the school, and I don’t think it’s my place or the court’s place to say that the school doesn’t need them,” Rogers said.

  • H & W to have new home

    Some eight months after a massive fire, H & W Sport Shop is moving again, this time to 120 E. Main St.

    Demolition is complete, and renovations are underway, and they should be ready to move into their new location in about a year, said H & W Sport Shop owner Shaun Hord said.

  • City’s water tank completion delayed

    Weather has delayed completion of a new water tank at Taylor Regional Hospital and one in the Spurlington area.

    That is what Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young said earlier this week. However, he added that they both should be completed within the next six months.

    “The situation they’re dealing with now is the weather,” said Young. “It’s cold, and they’re trying to paint the outside of the tank at the hospital. They have a number of coats they need to put on there to actually protect it properly.

  • Long is new principal of primary center

    The family of the Taylor County Primary Center has been in its new building for a month now, and there is a familiar face leading them on their new journey.
