  • More progress?

    Now that the election is finally finished and we're awaiting the transition of administrations, perhaps we can take the opportunity to consider more worldly and mundane subjects.

    I recently discovered information that may of interest to some of your readers, as it interests me.

  • Complaint about police, county attorney

    I want everyone to know about the wonderful City Police Department that Campbellsville has, as well as the prosecuting attorney's office.

    I have filed over five complaints with the County Attorney's office due to being constantly harassed by another person. I have had the police out here so many times I have lost count.

  • Take care of pets in winter

    Winter, with its bitter wind, rain and snow, is rapidly approaching. Now is the time to check our doghouses, patching and repairing all cracks and leaks. It is also the time for clean bedding, with straw being the best. This bedding will probably need to be replaced several times during the winter. Putting a board along the bottom of the door opening will keep the bedding in the doghouse. Turning the door away from the wind also helps protect our animals from the cold.

    Cats also need a house, something they can get into, not just a box in the garage or shed.

  • What American is all about

    This is what America is all about, the first African American to reach the highest office in our country, the United States Presidency. From the back of a bus to the forefront of the White House, a black president in office is a victory for all of us Americans, no matter what color we are.

  • November is National Adoption Month

    Dave Thomas, Lee Majors, former President Bill Clinton and Halle Berry. What do these famous people have in common? They were all adopted by someone who cared.

    November is National Adoption Awareness Month, and Gov. Steve Beshear has concurred, it is Adoption Awareness Month in Kentucky.

  • Problems at the polls

    Thank you for printing the sample ballot in the paper, because if you had not, I would not have voted on the correct one.

    The poll workers, the same ones who have been there year after year, did not hand me the correct ballot. In fact, they did not know whether to give many of the people a city or a county ballot. They were passing the people on to vote before they had checked the book. They were guessing.

  • Taylor County Clerk's response

    Taylor County Clerk Mark Carney had this response:

    Thanks for taking the time to share your experience and tell us about the concerns you had on Election Day. I am glad to hear how the ballot being printed in the paper is used by voters in preparation for the Election. The County spends lots of money every election to advertise the ballot in the newspaper. The cost of the advertisement depends upon the size of ballot. The cost to run the ballot in the paper this year was $589.68, but it is money well spent when voters take the time to review it.

  • While we slept, Congress looted our Social Security

    High Social Security payroll taxes have contributed to yearly Social Security Trust Fund surpluses until the proclaimed surplus is now in excess of $2,140 billion ($2.14 trillion).

    However, Congress has elected to sacrifice Social Security on the alter of corruption by spending the entire surplus, requiring the U.S. Treasury to cover the embezzlement by issuing non-negotiable IOU bonds to the Trust Fund. Such irresponsible and reprehensible behavior should alert voters that no member of Congress has the integrity to be our president.

  • Lack of marching band hurts students

    Needless to say, after having read Calen McKinney's column in which it stated the Campbellsville High School band program has declined tremendously, as well as not having a marching band this year, it greatly affected me. It was at that moment that I began to reflect of my years in the band.

  • Juvenile arthritis a serious crisis

    When Senators Mitch McConnell and Jim Bunning return to Washington, D.C. after the November election for a "lame duck" session, they will have a final opportunity to complete work and pass the Arthritis Prevention, Control and Cure Act (H.R. 1283).
