• 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.

  • Reader has faith in county officials

    I am writing this letter about a letter to the editor that was in the paper about the SPCA that [Cathy Harker] made a comment that Taylor County is not allowing cruelty to animals. They were found not guilty. They also have a committee that oversees this.
    I am an animal lover, too, but because of one rumor that got started, then it is all blamed on Taylor County because somebody was upset.

  • Business owner gives thanks for tornado donations

    I want to take a moment and say thank you for all those that participated in donations for the tornado victims throughout Kentucky. With everyone working together, we were able to take several loads of donations.
    Because of everyone’s efforts, we were able to deliver one vanload to Louisa on Monday, March 12, two vanloads to Salyersville on Tuesday, March 13, and another vanload to Dry Ridge (Crittenden and Piner communities) on Friday, March 16.

  • Reader upset over court's SPCA decision

    I hope everyone read the front page article “Fiscal Court Scraps Animal Control Board” (Thursday, Feb. 16), and I hope you are as outraged as I am.
    Once again our county judge/executive and magistrates have proven what a corrupt little town we live in, and that the “good ‘ol boys” are running everything. I am totally disgusted with every one of them for going against their word from the previous fiscal court meeting.  

  • Pajama Program thanks supporters

    Lake Cumberland Community Action Agency’s Head Start program would like to enthusiastically thank the Kentucky Chapter of The Pajama Program for donating about 1,650 pairs of new Carter’s brand pajamas to Head Start children in the Lake Cumberland area.

  • Next president will need to walk on water

    I’m watching the Republican primary. It’s been interesting how many candidates have risen to the top, only to become just a flash in the pan.
    Being president used to be a nice job. Make a few speeches, sign a few bills into law, declare war to rousing cheers and go throw out the first ball at a Washington Senators’ baseball game.

  • Reader shocked by Medco ad

    I was shocked to see the full-page ad in the paper about Medco Nursing Home. I spent months in a rehab hospital in Louisville with very little rehab.
    When I transferred to Medco I was soon walking and getting better all around.
    I wasn’t improving with little rehab in Louisville. At Medco I got rehab, was treated great and was home in one month. Thanks Medco.

  • Reader supports Medco

    Whoever thinks Medco Center of Campbellsville is inferior is dead wrong.
    My grandmother has been a patient there for five years, and during that time she has had excellent health care.
    My grandmother is total care except for feeding. Her mind is clear and she is very coherent. I spend several hours a week visiting her and it is at different times of the day. My grandmother is the world to me, and if I thought for one minute that this facility was at fault, I would not be leaving my grandmother there.

  • Gasoline prices and local taxes concern reader

    When I first moved to Campbellsville in 1980, and during the next three decades, the city of Campbellsville had some of the most reasonable gasoline prices one could find in Kentucky. Compared to the national average price, our gas was always at least 15 to 20 cents per gallon cheaper. What has happened in the last couple of years?
    Now, we have some of the most expensive gasoline prices in Kentucky, and in this region of the country. On several occasions recently, our gasoline prices have even exceeded the national average price per gallon.
