  • Fair rides into town

    The annual Taylor County Fair will be back in town June 3-10, and fair organizers are hoping for at least 14,000 attendees this year.

    Fair Board President Paul Malone said one big change from previous years is a new midway provider, James Gang Amusements out of Andalusia, Alabama. A midway provider is a contractor that provides rides, other attractions, game booths and fair foods.

    “We’ll have 18 rides,” said Malone. “We’ll have rides for small children, and then there’ll be rides for the youth … and adults.”

  • Hot vehicles pose danger for kids, pets

    Over the last seven years, an average of 37 children die in the U.S. per year from vehicular heat strokes, caused by being locked in a hot car with no air conditioning, according to kidsandcars.org.

    The majority of these incidents are unintentional, usually stemming from a distracted parent who forgets that a child is still in the car.

    Incidents like these happen at a variety of places, from grocery stores to places of employment and many others.

    Especially in parking lots, an unsuspecting citizen may spot a child in a car on a hot, summer day.

    A special press conference was held at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, and community leaders gathered at the Campbellsville Civic Center to address the issues faced by Taylor County.
