  • Mayor answers criticism by former mayor

    I appreciate Brenda Allen raising the issue of the city's surplus funds or, lack thereof, when I took office in January 2011.

    My statements at the [Campbellsville/Taylor County] Chamber [of Commerce] luncheon were accurate. The city had no reserves when I took office in January 2011.

  • Homeless shelter thanks supporters

    Green River Ministries homeless shelter board members wish to thank the 27 men and women who came to Campbellsville Country Club to play in the golf scramble.

  • Reader praises reporter's work

    I write to commend Miss Calen McKinney for her coverage of important matters to readers of the Central Kentucky News-Journal.

    Her front-page article about Campbellsville University in the July 23 issue is an illustration of her expert journalism. Miss Calen did not report "hearsay" information, but instead did much research in order for readers to be better informed about a major issue facing all of us in Taylor County and elsewhere.

  • Wife thanks those who honored, remembered her husband

     I am writing this letter to thank you for the coverage and the article that was written about my husband, Stephen Green. I want to give a special thank you to Calen McKinney for her choice of photo that was used in the initial coverage that appeared in the Monday, June 9, paper. The photo was non-intrusive and tactful, making it easy for the family and also our friends.

  • Library staff thanks helpers

     The Taylor County Public Library would like to thank all of those that helped in any way during our first ever "How to Festival."

  • Woman thanks fire and rescue

    I would like to thank Taylor County Fire & Rescue.

    When I was desperate and helpless on May 22, as I was awakened by the powerful microburst storm that was taking away part of my house. The roof and telephone were gone with it. I couldn't call anywhere for help, when they came to my door and rescued me. Thank you.

  • Harker says keep animals out of hot cars this summer

    Thank you for the article "Residents cautioned about children in hot cars," dated June 18, 2014. However, I wish the article had read, "Residents cautioned about all living creatures in hot cars."

    Every year, hundreds of animals (dogs, cats, etc.) suffer and die when their guardians make the mistake of leaving them in a parked car - even for "just a minute" - while they run an errand.

  • Coach thanks school district

    Recently, I was honored to represent Taylor County High School and the Kentucky High School Coaches Association as one of eight finalists for the National High School Baseball Coach of the Year Award. The event sponsored by the National High School Athletic Coaches Association honored coaches from across the country in 19 sport categories and was held in Jackson Hole, Wyo.

  • Family thankful for prayers during recent surgery

    Kayden Clark and family would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support during Kayden's recent surgery to remove a brain tumor.

    A special thanks to everyone that donated to the Kayden Clark Medical Fund, and those who sold raffle tickets and organized the benefit auction.

    Thanks to Boils Realty for helping with the benefit auction.

    Thank you.

  • Reader enjoyed historic sports article

    I read Bobby Brockman's article on the COKES team of 50 years ago. That was a good year as were some of the earlier teams. Before TV in the 40s and 50s, they were the "only game in town" literally. This carried over till the days Willard Smith spoke about. Lots of good players came through the Cokes in those years.

    We have lost something with the passing of those teams. High school and college ball is a good replacement, but not quite the same. I am sure it is not an age thing!
