• Recipient gives thanks to Impact Taylor County

    What [the members and volunteers of Impact Taylor County] did for the people of this area was a blessing. I love my door and knowing the floor is fixed where the rain had come in. This [letter] can’t express enough for what this means to me.

  • City is violating employees' rights

    I just read the article about the city approving a policy limiting employee social media use. I found many components of the “policy” interesting.

    For instance, a city employee posting a complaint about someone (i.e. a supervisor) or an issue within the city could result in disciplinary action. City Attorney John Miller said he believes the policy states that, “posting that information would be inappropriate.”  

  • TCMS group thanks sponsors

    Taylor County Middle School Class of 2016 eighth-grade celebration committee would like to thank the following for their help in making the event a huge success. Their commitment to our community is sincerely appreciated.

  • We must keep growing and learning

    While watching a graduation commencement, it occurred to me how similar graduation and retirement are. Most of the graduates were being asked what are you going to do after graduation. Quite often, acquaintances ask me what are you going to do after retirement? I usually respond by saying, “Retire from what? I’m doing what I like to do.”

  • Campbellsville Police encourage seatbelt use

    For anyone who complains about getting a ticket for not buckling up when driving or riding in a motor vehicle, here’s a crash course in reality:
    • 721 people were killed on Kentucky’s roadways in 2011.
    • 58 percent of those killed were not wearing a seat belt.

  • Reader talks about Friday superstitions

    As I’m writing this on Friday the 13th, I was thinking about the slogan “TGIF.”
    Today those words are good news. The end of the work week. But once upon a time, “It’s Friday” was among the least auspicious things you could say. Friday was considered completely unlucky. Not only a Friday occurring on the 13th of the month, but any Friday.

  • Reader approves of new meth bill

    In the April 2 newspaper, under the Local Briefs section, there was an article about the anti-meth bill that is in the process of being passed. I feel that the Local Brief section gives a positive impact to the newspaper by educating the readers about what is happening with the government.

  • Parents encouraged to talk to kids about drinking, drugs

    PowerTalk 21 day, which is Saturday, April 21, is the national day for parents to talk with their kids about alcohol. Campbellsville/Taylor County Anti-Drug Coalition and MADD want to encourage all parents and caregivers to start a potentially lifesaving conversation with teens about the dangers of drinking before age 21.  

  • Former cleaning contractor upset with library change

    On Monday, March 12, CKNJ wrote an article about a Taylor County Public Library board meeting. The paper printed that they had hired a new cleaning person. Well, that was a shocker since we knew nothing about it. But that afternoon, I get a call from the new librarian saying that wasn’t true what the paper printed. Well, I say OK since I had no reason not to believe it.

  • Community should be outraged

    In response to Foster pleads guilty - Shelly Miller, Allen Bertram shame on you!

    If someone is indicted on 193 counts, chances are they are guilty of more then one. This community should be outraged.

    As a mother of a special needs child, this made me physically ill knowing you put this person back on the streets.

    My faith teaches the last four things we as human face is death, judgment, heaven or hell. Well good luck with that.
