  • Reader says magistrates should be ashamed

    Shame on magistrates Tommy Corbin and Matt Pendleton for not supporting coroner Terry Dabney's request for a third paid deputy coroner.

    My husband, the late James C. "Jack" Bryant, was a deputy coroner. I remember many times the telephone ringing in the middle of the night and the deputy coroner was needed.

  • KORT thanks Christmas project partners

    KORT Physical Therapy would like to thank everyone who participated in our first annual "Make A Difference" project. With your help, we were able to provide Christmas Decorations, gifts, food and numerous other items to The Green River Ministries Shelter.

    On Dec. 10, employees of KORT, along with others, met at the shelter to decorate for Christmas and deliver donated items. A special thanks to The Central Kentucky News-Journal, United Citizens Bank and The Big Dawg for advertising this event, along with The Peddlers Mall for setting up donation boxes.

  • The Caring Place requests support

    May we have 20 seconds of your time? This is all it will take to read this letter.

    Twenty years ago, on Nov. 22, 1993, The Caring Place opened its doors to its first family, a family that had escaped an abusive situation in their own home.

    Since then, we have been able to accommodate, educate and assist more than 6,000 families. This has been a welcoming refuge for the women and children in distress.

  • Reader says heroes serve community

    Heroes do walk among us. They don't have to wear capes or mask or crazy costumes. The reason I write this is because I know one. His name is Rick. He is the constable that works at the Campbellsville Middle School. 

    On any given day, he directs the parent pick-up parking lines. He smiles and greets each person as they pull up, often making small talk. If you miss a day, he remembers and makes sure you are OK the next time you come to pick up your child. He is always so nice and friendly.

  • Anti-drug coalition needs community support

    The Campbellsville/Taylor County Anti-Drug Coalition has been educating our children for the past 17 years. The Coalition has been financed through state and U.S. Government grants. The majority of those grant funds have either been eliminated or have become increasingly more competitive, thus future funding is questionable for the immediate future.

    The grant applications indicated that local funds would continue funding the Coalition when federal funds were no longer available. The time has come when local organizations should step forward and fund the Coalition.

  • Project Graduation supporters thanked

    Taylor County Class of 2014 had its first fundraiser for Project Graduation on Friday, Oct. 18. Roadblocks were held at two intersections on the Campbellsville Bypass.

    We would like to thank all of the people who donated. Each donation was greatly appreciated, and helped make this fundraiser a huge success.

    We would also like to thank all of the volunteers who offered their time to help the senior class of 2014. Once again, thank you each and every individual who contributed to our Project Graduation.

  • Resident says he isn't anti-Campbellsville

    I have a feeling that perhaps my motives have been misunderstood. I want to clearly state for the record that I am not anti-city council, anti-mayor or anti-Campbellsville. I am very pro-Campbellsville.

    Everyone in this room, I believe, has this very important thing in common, and I want to personally thank the mayor and city council for not raising the property tax rates as they could have last month.

  • DYW co-chairs say thanks

    Another year is in the books for the Distinguished Young Woman of Taylor County program.

    This year, as always, we were committed to providing a showcase for some of the communities most outstanding young women and support them with the opportunity to present their achievements and talents for scholarship opportunities.

    The Class of 2014 offered 12 of our community's most exceptional girls, competing for more than $9,000 in cash scholarships and more than $70,000 in college offered scholarships.

  • County well represented at state fair

    The Taylor County Tourist Commission and Taylor County Fiscal Court would like to thank all of the community members who supported the Kentucky State Fair.

    This was the second year that Taylor County sponsored the opening ceremonies reception. The event was again a success. We just wanted to send a special thanks to all the sponsors for the reception.
