  • New Taylor County Fire Station officially opens

    The project has been years in the making, but Taylor County Fire and Rescue officially opened its new home Saturday.

    A large crowd was on hand for the open house and dedication of the new facility Saturday afternoon. Among those in attendance were State Sen. Max Wise, Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young, Taylor County Judge-Executive Eddie Rogers, members of the Taylor County Fiscal Court, and members of Taylor County Fire and Rescue, as well as members of Campbellsville Fire-Rescue.

  • County schools to get field at VMP

    Taylor County Fiscal Court will draw up formal papers to put Taylor County Middle School in charge of the former Babe Ruth baseball field in Veterans Memorial Park for the Lady Cardinals’ softball team. That decision was made in a special-called meeting Thursday morning.

    The Taylor County Schools will be in charge of maintenance, upkeep and letting other teams or orgranizations use the field for the next 15 years.

    The school district is also in charge of putting up new lights and paying those expenses.

  • Busy city street gets stop sign

    A new stop sign now stands at the corner of Lebanon Avenue and Main Street.

    “Some businesses asked us to install some crosswalks and one of them was going to be there at Firestone and the tourism commission,” Mayor Tony Young said. “So, when we ran it by our police department to look at that, they recommended a stop sign.”

    The change could probably have been made sooner, and there will still be some confusion until drivers get used to the situation. Out-of-town drivers were already confused on who had the right-of-way.

  • Education is key when it comes to syringe exchange programs

     “Why would you give a needle to a drug addict?”

    Admittedly, I once thought that was a very stupid question. It would just enable an addict, make it easier for them to do their drug of choice. Why make needles easier to get? These were all thoughts I had when I first heard about syringe exchange programs.

    And so when I hear people express these thoughts, I don’t automatically discredit them, because it wasn’t that long ago that I thought the exact same thing.

    My dad has had a change of heart recently.

    Actually, he received a new heart via transplant on Sept. 29.

    In a way, it had been a long time coming, but in other ways, the wait was extremely short.

    Dad’s heart problems began when I was in high school, and he was about to turn 37 years old.

    In the summer of 1988, I was gone on a trip with friends to Charleston, South Carolina. My parents were home and my mom was getting ready to go to a friend’s wedding just up the street from our house.
