• School Board appreciation

    As a citizen of Taylor County, I'm extremely proud of the students and teachers, the administrators and the service workers who are the heart and soul of the Taylor County School System. And I'm also proud of the district leadership this community has put in place through the members of the Taylor County Board of Education.

  • Toys for Kids thanks

    Toys for Kids thanks

    On behalf of the Campbellsville and Taylor County Fire Departments, I want to thank each and every person, organization or business who contributed money, toys or time to assist in our Toys for Kids program.

    You helped bring Christmas to more than 500 children in our community and without your support we would not have achieved this success.

    Thank you!

  • The Blessing Bell touches us all

    It isn't the dinner bell ringing for that Christmas feast, nor is it the jingle from that one horse open sleigh. It isn't the tinkle of Rudolph's harness as he flies through the sky, and it isn't even the beautiful church bells sounding at midnight to announce the celebration of Christmas.

    The Blessing Bell rings loud and clear, calling out for donations to be dropped into the red kettle at the Salvation Army collection sites.

    Standing beside the bucket, ringing that little bell filled my heart with innumerable blessings this Christmas season.

  • Food Pantry thanks

    Thank you to all who had a part in another great year at the food pantry.

    We served an average of 275 families each month, then in December we served 422 families.

    Thanks to the Monday baggers, the Taylor County Road Department crew, the cardboard man and the ones who help with the distribution. Also thanks to the stock crew at Kroger.

    And a special thanks to all who gave financial help. May God give a special blessing to all.

  • Thanks for help

    Taylor County Elementary School PTA would like to thank the following businesses for donating time, money or gifts toward our Supper with Santa.

    Without their fabulous support, our Supper with Santa would not have been as much fun. The raffles were a huge hit.

  • Show troops our support

    I want to respond to [Rebecca Cassell's recent column] in regard to our casualties suffered in the recent conflicts our nation is involved in. Six months ago my son also had to register for the draft.

    I have served overseas and seen firsthand the devastating cost in life and limb resulting from war. I sympathize wholeheartedly with your sentiments regarding your wish that no more lose their lives. Unfortunately this is not likely to happen.

  • Student asks for help

    Each member of our class is working on a project called the "Parade of States." We are responsible for gathering as much information as we can from a number of sources.

    I have chosen Kentucky for my state. If any of your readers would help me out by sending any pictures, postcards, a used license plate, facts, products, etc. from your state, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Please send the information before March to: Eli Cannalla, Cascade Christian School, 601 9th Ave. SE, Puyallup, WA 98372.

  • The battle of the century

    I hear that Congress may very well renew and extend our current federal tax rates after a two-year debate and cliff-hanging finish, just a few days before they would revert to higher rates, come the new year.

    Most of our businesses and commercial industries will be pleased with this outcome, since economists predict it will serve to help our nation recover from the recession that has plagued us for so many months.

  • Lights are a Christmas blessing

    I would just like to say thank you to all of the city/county employees and businesses who have helped to make the Christmas light display in Miller Park a success.

    What a blessing it is each morning as I take my children to school and daycare to get to experience the glorious lights that the Lord has given us to enjoy this year. These lights put a smile on each of my family members daily and I always get a little good morning giggle or "wow" from my precious children out of the lights. What a wonderful way my Jesus has given to me to start each and every morning.

  • A Thanksgiving 'thank you'

    Thank you to Bethel First Presbyterian Church for a very special Thanksgiving meal, your 18th time to provide for many people in your community who were hungry for food and/or fellowship.

    This event first began when a majority of the church's 115 members cook for and served about 50 people in 1993.

    Since then, the crowds have steadily increased each year as single adults, couples and families have lined up to be served in the fellowship hall by many church and community volunteers.
