  • Cattlemen's group thanks supporters

    The Taylor County Cattlemen's Association would like to thank Forcht Bank, Green River Fence and Limestone Farm Lawn Worksite for sponsoring their annual meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 4.

  • Mother thankful for childcare

    I think when you find a blessing in life, it is important to share your blessing.

    Eighteen months ago, my family welcomed the addition of our son. I am sure every working mother can relate to the joy of such an arrival. She can equally relate to the stress and worry encountered when maternity leave ends and one must return to the daily grind. Thankfully, God directed my path to the staff of A Child's Workplace.

  • Library thanks police department

    Taylor County Public Library would like to recognize and sincerely thank the Campbellsville Police Department for the two-week session on safety and self-defense.

    Thanks to Andy Warren and the other officers who participated. We learned so much thanks to your excellent teaching technique and thought-provoking lessons.

    We also thank Taylor County Cooperative Extension Office for allowing us to use your lovely meeting room. Community partnerships truly help make our community great.

  • Church thanks supporters

  • 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.

    Shannon Lee, secretary/treasurer
