  • Grider family thanks community, supporters

    We, the family of Anthony "Tony" Grider, wish to express our most heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all of the amazing people who have been by our side physically or spiritually during Tony's battle to heal, his eventual journey home to our Father, and the continued support today.

  • Resident questions mayor on several issues

    I went to the Campbellsville City Council meeting on Oct. 6, 2014, to ask the mayor a question. He answered Mr. [Kenny] Anderson. The other gentleman got up to ask a question. He wouldn't answer him his question and asked if anyone else did. Before anyone could say anything, he adjourned the meeting and left everybody sitting there in shock. What a mayor.

    My question to the mayor is, how many easements on private property he is working on Pleasant Drive.

  • Mayor responds to resident's questions

    Mr. William "Dubby" Ball makes an excellent point about the high commercial cost of earth-moving equipment and services. I do not dispute his estimates since that is his professional occupation. That's why the Campbellsville Water Co., along with the city of Campbellsville, recognize that many projects can be completed by city and water company employees with city-owned equipment.

  • Quinn family thankful for community support

    We would like to thank everyone for the love, care and support shown to us after Alex's accident. It was truly amazing to see that so many people care so much.

    To the first responders, thanks so much for the care you gave on the scene and to the Air Evac crew that took him to Louisville. The follow-up visits you made each time you had a run to the hospital meant a lot.

    The staff at the U of L trauma/burn unit were so good at their job and showed such great compassion.

  • Green River Lake group thanks cleanup volunteers, supporters

    Thanks to the hard work of 362 volunteers and the support of The Friends of Green River lake volunteer group as well as local businesses, the 28th annual Green River Lake Volunteer Lakeshore Cleanup was again a huge success.

    On Saturday, Sept. 20, more than 230 bags of trash, more than 40 tires and various large pieces of plastic and metal were picked up from the shoreline. The hard work and effort put in by the numerous volunteers allowed for a cost savings to the government of more than $24,489.30.

  • Reif says animal shelter doing things right

    This letter is in response to an email sent to the members of the Taylor County SPCA and to all animal lovers in Taylor County.

  • 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.
