  • Taking money off Mother Nature's 'plate'

     

    Nature lovers believing they are helping to preserve some of Kentucky's greatest treasures, its lands, forests and streams, just got a rude surprise about the special "nature" state license plate they purchase.

    Proceeds from the $10 extra they pay for the plate, which is supposed to go to the Kentucky Heritage Land Conservation Fund, instead are being siphoned off for the ever-insufficient state General Fund and used for other purposes, The Courier-Journal's Tom Loftus reported recently.

  • Governing through the storm

    What a week of weather we have had in the commonwealth. No part of Kentucky was spared the record-breaking snowfall and temperatures this week. As schools, businesses and many government agencies had to close, so did the General Assembly due to the hazardous weather. However, the Senate made the decision to report to work on Thursday and Friday to do the people's work and help pass through legislation that would be in the best interest of our citizens.

  • Play becomes passion for Gowdy

     

    Tonya Gowdy had a lot of dolls growing up.

    And, as so many little girls do, she cared for and treated those dolls as if they were her own children.

    The older she got, the more she realized that what she had been practicing with the dolls had actually grown into one of her greatest passions: looking after children.

    “It actually first came about ever since I was little,” Gowdy said. “I had that passion of working with kids, and it all kind of started just playing with and caring for those dolls.”

  • Citizens asked to be cautious of water damage at seldom-used properties

    Campbellsville Water & Sewer officials are asking people to check all of their water lines for possible leaks if they can safely do so.

    "Please be sure to check all vacant buildings, rental properties, farming operations and any areas where water is not used regularly," said Controller Cheryl Sullivan. "Due to the freezing temperatures recently, it is very possible that lines have broken in remote areas that haven't used water for a long time."

  • Hoskins-Sanders enjoys serving her community

     

    When Campbellsville City Council member Sharon Hoskins-Sanders graduated from Durham School, an all-black school, in 1964 and went to Campbellsville High School, which was integrated the year before, she had some fear about how she and other students might be treated.

    "There, it was a transition," said Hoskins-Sanders. "But surprisingly, we went in and we were accepted. And we could do everything, anything that anybody at the school could do. It wasn't like we were so alienated or segregated."

  • Woman's death result of cold temperatures

     

    A woman who was discovered buried in the snow outside her Elkhorn home on Friday evening is believed to have died from exposure, said Taylor County Coroner Terry Dabney.

    Wilda Arnett, 74, had probably been outside her home on Bass Ridge Road for 2 or 3 days before she was found at about 6:15 p.m. on Friday, Dabney said.

    The coroner stated that she was outside her back door when she likely slipped off her porch, falling about 5 feet onto the ground in such a way that she wasn't able to get up or call for help.

  • School library, city office suffer storm damage

     

    The Campbellsville Civic Center was damaged as a result of the snow and ice melting, but meetings there will continue uninterrupted.

    Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young said tonight's listening session and March's Campbellsville City Council meeting, both of which will be held in the main meeting room, will continue as planned, as that room was not damaged.
