  • Judge will no longer perform marriages

     

    Taylor County Judge-Executive Eddie Rogers is one of many judge-executives in Kentucky who has ceased to officiate any weddings after a recent U.S. Supreme Court case that made recognition of same-sex marriage the law across the country.

    "I've quit doing ceremonies. I'm not doing any ceremonies," Rogers said. "I respect everybody's beliefs, and whatever they want to do in their lives ... I want to treat everybody fairly."

  • Fire chief wants to sell truck from fatal accident

     

    Campbellsville Fire Chief Kyle Smith wants to sell the ladder truck that was involved with the electrocution accident from last summer.

    "Our department has been without a ladder truck for nearly one year, and it appears it will still be quite some time before that truck is repaired and returned," said Smith.

    The fire chief's proposal is to sell that ladder truck, which the city purchased in 2009, for about $400,000, and use that to purchase a pumper truck and finance a new ladder truck.

  • CHS student learns to play guitar in after school program

     

    He had never played before, but, one day, he decided to pick one up and give it a try. Months later, he says it's one of his favorite hobbies.

    Michael Richards, who graduated from Campbellsville High School in May, learned to play guitar when he attended the afterschool Eagle Excellence program.

    Richards said he can't really explain why he decided to start playing last fall.

    "I decided one day, 'Why don't I just pick up a guitar and start playing?'"

  • Weather delays school construction

    The two Taylor County Schools construction projects are behind schedule, largely due to the weather.

    At Thursday night’s Taylor County Board of Education special-called meeting, Taylor County School Superintendent Roger Cook stated that construction at the new high school is about 70 days behind, while construction at the new elementary school is 55 or 60 days behind.

    “If we ever get dry weather, in August possibly, then it’ll go a lot faster, probably,” Cook said.
