  • 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.

  • 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.
