  • I did not retire

    No, I did not retire. No, I am not ill! Financial corners were cut and I was cornered.

    There is no way I would have given up my position at Campbellsville High School of my own accord. I think the world knows how I feel about CHS. It was a wonderful 41 years.

  • The end of an era

    There was a customer of mine who ran a store along a narrow blacktop road on the Kentucky and Tennessee line. I'll call her Minnie. I'm a little shy of using names in stories since lawyers are now advertising.

  • What's next? Pre-pay for a restaurant meal?

    I see in the news where our police department is querying gas station owners whether the majority would like a City ordinance requiring motorists to pre-pay for gasoline purchases.

  • Health board actions not proper

    While Taylor Countians enjoyed the pretty weather and maybe a nice summer barbecue on the evening of June 24, they had no idea their rights to good government (and public health) were being compromised in Russell Springs when the Lake Cumberland District Board of Health had its summer meeting.

  • Politician or preacher?

    I have never stood up in front of a church and delivered a sermon. Nor have I sweat under a tent preaching a revival. And assuredly I can say I have never given a homily. That does not stop any of my children from asking me to stop preaching at them on a regular basis.

    I have also never run for office. Not in a public forum, or even when I attended school. That has not stopped me from trying to swing the popular vote in my direction in my own household.

    Isn't every politician a preacher? Isn't every preacher a politician?

  • Why have speed limits if they're not enforced?

    I was wondering why we have speed limits on county roads that are not enforceable? People speed up and down Tabernacle Road and other county roads and nothing can be done.

    Families with children live on these roads. A family pet was hit on Tabernacle Road not more than 4 feet from its owner while they were crossing the road, because the driver was going too fast to slow down. Law enforcement was called and we were told that though there are now county road speed limits they are not enforceable.

  • Central Kentucky Arts Series

    The 41st season of the Central Kentucky Arts Series is now complete, and we want to thank the members of the community who contributed to the success of the programs. We very much appreciate the help of the local media, including the Central Kentucky News-Journal, WGRK, WTCO and WVLC whose publication of announcements and donation of on-air time ensured that our community was made aware of Arts Series events.

  • First Lady met with snide remarks

    I was reading in a paper recently about Laura Bush being asked to speak to the students at an all-girls college where she was greeted with some catcalls and snide remarks. I was wondering, who these little tarts think they are?
