  • Reader opposes nickel tax

    Well, the nickel tax is back on the table again for discussion, this time with different tactics.

    We have gone from leaky roofs to mold, to now sick children and overcrowding. I do not know what excuse will be next.

    As far as overcrowding goes, there are no more students there now than there has been in the past several years. There have been 1,300-plus children there for many years. We were overcrowded when they closed the building that was originally bought and designed for preschool. That building was eventually given to the maintenance department.

  • Story of rescued dog touches reader's heart

    The hearts of all animal lovers must have been made warm by the story of Paulette! (Local dog gets new lease on life in Vermont, published in the CKNJ on July 18).

    Thank God there are still people like Sandra, Linda and Terri, as well as the pilots who have given this dog a life.

    In this day we read of killings and abuse of children and animals so often. It is so good to read of people searching out the homeless, helpless and unloved.

  • Reader is proud of local hospital

    Several times this year I had to take my husband, Dennis Corbin, to the emergency room, and he would be hospitalized. I was met with caring nurses who helped him get inside.

    Thanks to the nurses and CNAs who were always friendly and checking on Dennis to see if he needed anything. He received great care during his stay in the hospital.

    Thanks to Dr. Jerome Dixon and Dr. Summer Tucker who, with their great bedside manner, gave Dennis their best care.

    Let's be proud of our hospital, the doctors and the employees who give their best to the patients.

  • Reader wants tax money spent wisely

    Isn't it amazing how politicians, do-gooders and salesmen promise if we only spend a few more million dollars, everything will be wonderful - if the taxpayers are paying for it.

    Only three years ago, we were told by the Taylor County School Board if we didn't pay more taxes (only a nickel) it would be horrible. But it was voted down.

  • Citizen thanks mayor, judge/executive for efforts

    A heartfelt thank you is offered to Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young and Taylor County Judge/Executive Eddie Rogers for coming out on July 4 in a persistent rain and presenting the proclamation that identifies Campbellsville as a "Purple Heart City." It was an honor to have them present at the Edwards-O'Banion Post 82 American Legion Hall for the ceremony originally scheduled for the main stage Fourth of July activities.

  • Couple gives thanks to county road department

    We would like to publicly thank Brian Smothers and the Taylor County Road Department for quickly fixing the bridge/road damage from the recent heavy rains.

    Bear Track Road was closed due to a large section of the road leading to the bridge being completely gone. This is a very heavily traveled road to get from the east side of the county to the west side shopping area.

  • Wife says there is life after Parkinson's disease

    I enjoyed reading the article about Mr. Eon on Parkinson's disease. I appreciate him sharing his story.

    He is right, you need to stay active, doing therapy and having a daily routine. There is no known cure for Parkinson's now. You have to learn to live with it.

  • Reader disagrees with churches on Boy Scout issue

    I was very disappointed to see that some churches have chosen not to take a stand against the homosexual agenda that has recently reared its head in the Boy Scouts.

    Mr. Sanford's comment about being surprised that "the possibility of a policy change captured so much attention" demonstrates that there is a disconnect with reality. A policy change that contradicts the very belief system that the organization was founded upon SHOULD draw attention!

  • Business thanks residents for support of benefit

    A big thank you to the residents of Campbellsville. During the month of May, Super Wash car washes across the country participated in an annual food raiser. A portion of the proceeds is donated to local food pantries.

    We are thrilled to announce the national donations totaled $54,735. A donation has been made in the amount of $199.50 to your local food pantry.

    Thanks Campbellsville for your patronage, which resulted in this donation.

  • Gorin thanks golf scramble supporters
