  • Pizza Hut coming back to Campbellsville

    Almost six years after the one at the Green River Plaza closed its doors, a new Pizza Hut is opening up, Pizza Hut officials said.

    A new Pizza Hut is scheduled to open on Broadway, next to Taco Bell, sometime in the summer, Regional Manager Charlie Orr confirmed last week.

    “We’re in the approval phase; we’re running our plans by the state,” Orr said.

    A Pizza Hut had been located in the Kroger shopping center on Ky. 210 for many years, but it left that building about five or six years ago.

  • ‘Blood, sweat, tears and gasoline’

    Gerry James wants to spread the word: Kentucky is more than basketball, bourbon and bluegrass.

    That is why he started Explore Kentucky, a company he describes as a community of explorers that looks to celebrate and capture the spirit of Kentucky.

    A self-described “military brat” who has lived in places as diverse as New Jersey, Oklahoma and Germany, James did not always have a high opinion of Kentucky.

    As an African-American, James was especially wary of some of the rumors of racism that he had heard about it.

  • Citizens share feelings on community

    Roughly 100 people filled the main room of the Campbellsville Civic Center on Thursday night to talk about what they saw as the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.

    Many community members said the city and county should work harder to keep young people from moving away. The community also needs a better-trained workforce, people said.

    The city and county both have many strengths, among them a friendly people, the city lake and Green River Lake, reasonable tax rates, historical monuments, Campbellsville University and a temperate climate.

  • 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.
