  • You can't be serious

  • Taylor County Fair thanks

    It was an honor to help with the 2011 Taylor County Fair. The few overworked, unpaid fair board members have so many tasks to do throughout the year. There are months of pre-planning, but the weeks before and during the fair can be overwhelming.

    There is constantly something to do, such as seeking sponsors and donations, mowing, spraying, weed eating, hanging banners, hanging and watering the beautiful flowers, building the stage, stocking the concessions, setting up gates and tedious daily upkeep of the grounds by picking up litter and emptying the garbage cans.

  • Top-notch school superintendents

    From reading about the Taylor County School Board's evaluation of Superintendent Roger Cook in the July 18 issue of your paper and the evaluation of Superintendent Mike Deaton by the Campbellsville Independent School Board's evaluation of him as reported in a recent issue of your paper, it sounds as though Campbellsville and Taylor County are blessed with two good leaders for our local schools, positions that are not easily carried out.

    It was particularly interesting to read board member David Hall's comments about Mr. Cook. Mr. Hall is to be commended.

  • Who's in charge of subdivision regulations?

    Recently I ran into a conflict regarding restrictions on our subdivision. I called every official I could to find out how to get the issue resolved. Ultimately, I was told that if it was in reference to adherence to the restrictions or covenant made when the subdivision was formed, I would probably have to file a lawsuit against that person for there was no one to enforce the rules.

  • Don't ignore the will of the people

    The elections of fall 2010 have long been over, and the new members of Congress have been in their seats since January. Nevertheless, it still appears that there are openly hostile relations between various members of Congress and the two political parties as a whole.

    This comes at the expense of the great citizens of this fine country who want and need to be more involved with the decision making of our nation, above and beyond merely voting for those who will make all of the decisions, which is very little power indeed.

  • Public library thanks

    The Taylor County Public Library would like the thank Chase McBride from WVLC "the Big Dawg" for drawing the prize winners for the summer reading program, and thanks to the Big Dawg for donating two tickets from Kentucky Down Under.

    Thanks to WVLC, WCKQ, and WGRK for the radio coverage for the summer reading program. We would also like to thank CKNJ for the excellent service that they give to the library. Without radio and newspaper coverage, we would not be able to have the large number of children and adults come to our programs at the library.

  • Sheriff's office thanks

    The Taylor County Sheriff's Office and the American Red Cross would like to thank the community for all of their help in making our recent blood drive a success.

    We want to personally thank everyone who attended and supported the blood drive. Thanks to your help, we exceeded our goal. A special thank you to the following sponsors:

    Central Kentucky News-Journal, The Big Dawg radio station, Campbellsville Goodyear, Disco's Barber Shop, Community Trust Bank, Kroger and Gate Petroleum Co.

  • Needs of the students being overlooked

    I have always been a supporter of good education and proper training of our children. I have been much disappointed of late in our school system and some of those who are running it. I am speaking of the Campbellsville System.

    It seems that the real needs of the students are being overlooked, except by a few really dedicated teachers. All of our funds are being placed more on sports and the cliques they create than on the assurance of good education. Counselors seem less concerned with some and are failing the real needs of those who need it most.

  • Hiestand House thanks

    The Hiestand House-Taylor County Museum's Golf Scramble was a success, raising funds for the servants' quarters.

  • Great medical care

    Blessings on Taylor Regional Hospital and the medical profession in our community. Last week during my rotation as TRH Chaplain, I needed medical attention myself.

    We should all be grateful for the medical education, training and experience of our local physicians. Thanks to them, I'll be able to do my next chaplain's service in October.
