• 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.

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

  • Facility appreciates police assistance

    I would like to express our sincere appreciation to the Campbellsville Police Department, and especially officer Bart Gilpin, for a job well done during a stressful event that took place at Jackson Street Towers.

    Last weekend, we had a resident who was missing. After searching and realizing we needed further help, officer Bart Gilpin responded. He was very knowledgeable in the steps that needed to be followed while being very kind and patient.

  • TCHS thanks Project Graduation supporters

    On Friday, May 28, at Taylor County High School, 257 young people received their high school diplomas. On Saturday, May 29, those same young people, now high school graduates, woke up - alive and well - to start the next chapter in their lives. This was because, in large part, to the success of Project Graduation.

  • CHS thanks Project Graduation supporters

    On behalf of the 2013 Campbellsville High School Project Graduation Committee, we would like to thank the following contributors:

  • Reader wants park operated by private company

    I wonder if anyone has ever thought of privatizing Miller Park. I say this from strictly an economic angle.

    The park costs the city money, about $250,000 per year, unless the budget is amended to cover said costs. By cutting the budget by $250,000, economic stimulus would soon follow.
