  • Park will honor late Taylor school board chair

     

    Although the establishment of a park located near the recently demolished section of the old Taylor County Elementary School has just begun, a name was chosen for the eventual park at Tuesday night’s meeting of the Taylor County Board of Education.

    Upon request of Taylor County Schools Superintendent Roger Cook, the board voted unanimously to name the park in honor of former longtime Taylor County Board of Education Chairman Tony Davis, who passed away unexpectedly in May.

  • Organ donors give the gift of life

     

    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.

  • Battle between Eagles to decide District 2 top seed

    The last eight games between Campbellsville and Bethlehem have been some strange deals.
    The last two, just like tomorrow’s encounter on Dave Fryrear Field, have been district battles. CHS fell 14-13 at home two years ago and Bethlehem pulled away for a 22-8 triumph in Bardstown last season.
    The previous six contests between the sets of Eagles were back-and-forth with each team winning six.
    Campbellsville went 2-1 at Bardstown with a 33-21 loss in 2013 while Bardstown went 2-1 on the road with its only loss coming 36-0 in 2014.

  • Third frame costs TC at East Jessamine

    Taylor County scored on the last play of the first half to lead home-standing East Jessamine on Friday night.
    However, the host Jaguars put up three third-period touchdowns and held on for a 28-20 district triumph in Nicholasville.
    The Cardinals led 6-0 early in the second period on Tre Goodin’s 54-yard pass touchdown pass to Cameron Kosid out of punt formation.
    However, East Jessamine led 7-6 before Darien Bishop’s interception at :39 set up Logan Parker’s burst from two yards out.
