  • Kentucky’s financial future requires tough decisions

     

    For many months, we have been working to resolve the toughest financial crisis Kentucky has ever faced, a crisis that began many years ago and that previous governors and legislators either negligently handled or ignored. It is now snowballing out of control. Nothing about this process has been easy. That does not, however, take away from the present reality that we are facing, or from the difficult decisions that must still be made.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Lady Cards win big in Florida

     

    The Taylor County Lady Cards put on quite the show Tuesday in the Hit the Beach Classic in Panama City Beach, Fla.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Cardinals go 2-2

     

    The Taylor County Cardinals went 2-2 this week, picking up a pair of wins in the Louisville Valley Invitational Tournament and dropping two in the Green County Wooden Bat Classic.

  • PREP TENNIS: Despite new look, Taylor tennis preparing for new season

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: New bat rules in play this season

     

    Youth baseball players across the country will need to get a new bat this season after USA Baseball implemented new regulations in January.

    Bats need to have a USA Baseball stamp on them to be legal for play in several organizations, including Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken – of which Campbellsville Youth Baseball is now part.

  • PREP SPORTS: Wet weather doesn't dampen spirits for spring sports

    It’s been a wacky start to spring so far, with more rain than sunshine.

    Spring sports teams at Campbellsville and Taylor County high schools have had to juggle everything from cancellations and postponements to trying to find ways to practice.

    Coaches and athletes alike have been frustrated by the weather, which wiped out most of what was the first official week of baseball and softball seasons last week and a large chunk of the third week of tennis.

  • School district should name superintendent finalists

    The Taylor County Board of Education is getting its superintendent search underway, as it was announced Monday night that 12 candidates had placed their names into the mix to be the leader of the district.

    The process is just in the early stages, and a superintendent is not expected to be announced until the beginning of June. There is still a lot to be discussed and evaluated moving forward, but one thing the board should keep in mind as this process unfolds is transparency.

  • Teachers go above and beyond

     

    I’m a little later to the game than many other columnists around the state, but I wanted to take an opportunity to chime in on Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin’s comments made on 99.9 The Big Dawg last week.

    Let’s be clear about one thing here: Gov. Bevin’s comments were absolutely out of line, and teachers have every right to be upset about what was said. I’m not even a teacher and was disappointed in what I heard.

  • City sells 19 acres at sports complex site

     

    The Campbellsville City Council voted unanimously to sell 19 acres of land at the site of the Campbellsville Sports Complex to the state of Kentucky for $200,000 at a special-called meeting Wednesday evening.

    The 19 acres were sold to the state for the use of the Transportation Cabinet for the bypass project, the first phase of which will involve connecting KY 55 and KY 70.

    The council voted unanimously to authorize Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young to execute the deed.
