  • Reader remembers a simpler Independence Day

    Tonight as I watch the fireworks over City Lake screaming their salutes to the stars and stripes and the birth of the United States of America, I can’t help but think back to a time when Independence Day was a little easier to understand and celebrate.

    When I was a youngster growing up in the days before we were societized and governmentalized to death, I think we grasped freedom in a way that is missing in the children and grandchildren of our generation.

  • Resident is proud of Main Street

    I just want to thank whoever made Main Street so pretty. It looks alive again.

    The beautiful urns and flowers changed the look so much. So glad Happy Days is in the old Corner Drug building where I spent a lot of happy hours in younger years.

  • TCHS fishing team thanks supporters

    The Taylor County High School Fishing Team had its opening tournament of the season on June 16 at Green River Lake.

    The team would like to thank the following people for volunteering their time to serve as boat captains: John Benningfield, Larry Cox, Jeremiah Davis, Scott Osbourn, John Sharpe, Chad White and Todd White.

  • Payroll taxes good for employee raises

    I was glad to hear that city and county employees will receive their raises next year. If they hadn’t, I would have been curious as to why not, as I am paying not one, but two payroll taxes, to the city and county. I would have wondered where all the money was going.

    I have not had a raise in three years, and I have friends who haven’t (had one) in four or more. It’s a tough economy, you know, and I certainly appreciate the city and county employees who serve us so well. So all those who are blessed to get pay raises should be thankful.

  • Golf scramble sponsors thanked

    The Hiestand House-Taylor County Museum Board of Directors would like to thank Mike Kehoe, the Campbellsville Country Club and the teams of golfers for a successful golf scramble experience on June 22.

  • Campbellsville needs its residents to be leaders, dreamers

    Campbellsville is a good city that is quickly on its way to becoming great. Main Street is being resurrected right before our eyes. Every time a broken thing gets mended, every time a brick gets put back into place, every light that gets turned back on brings a new level of hope, and hope is the spark that ignites fires.

    In the past couple of years, a great deal of momentum has been achieved but we are nowhere near critical mass.

  • Clean up litter in Taylor County

    As children, how many of us were not taught to pick up after ourselves, to clean up our surroundings and to take pride in completion of the tasks?

    Many evenings lately I have been taking my dog, Macie, for walks on my neighborhood streets. As we walk, I am repeatedly shocked by the amount of litter that is thrown onto the streets and curbs. Water bottles, soft drink cans, fast food wrappers and cigarette packages are the most common items. I have expressed my concerns about this mess to many, and the common response is that people simply do not care.

  • Recipient gives thanks to Impact Taylor County

    What [the members and volunteers of Impact Taylor County] did for the people of this area was a blessing. I love my door and knowing the floor is fixed where the rain had come in. This [letter] can’t express enough for what this means to me.

  • City is violating employees' rights

    I just read the article about the city approving a policy limiting employee social media use. I found many components of the “policy” interesting.

    For instance, a city employee posting a complaint about someone (i.e. a supervisor) or an issue within the city could result in disciplinary action. City Attorney John Miller said he believes the policy states that, “posting that information would be inappropriate.”  

  • TCMS group thanks sponsors

    Taylor County Middle School Class of 2016 eighth-grade celebration committee would like to thank the following for their help in making the event a huge success. Their commitment to our community is sincerely appreciated.
