Today's Opinions

  • Mayor responds to resident's questions

    Mr. William "Dubby" Ball makes an excellent point about the high commercial cost of earth-moving equipment and services. I do not dispute his estimates since that is his professional occupation. That's why the Campbellsville Water Co., along with the city of Campbellsville, recognize that many projects can be completed by city and water company employees with city-owned equipment.

  • Resident questions mayor on several issues

    I went to the Campbellsville City Council meeting on Oct. 6, 2014, to ask the mayor a question. He answered Mr. [Kenny] Anderson. The other gentleman got up to ask a question. He wouldn't answer him his question and asked if anyone else did. Before anyone could say anything, he adjourned the meeting and left everybody sitting there in shock. What a mayor.

    My question to the mayor is, how many easements on private property he is working on Pleasant Drive.

  • Green River Lake group thanks cleanup volunteers, supporters

    Thanks to the hard work of 362 volunteers and the support of The Friends of Green River lake volunteer group as well as local businesses, the 28th annual Green River Lake Volunteer Lakeshore Cleanup was again a huge success.

    On Saturday, Sept. 20, more than 230 bags of trash, more than 40 tires and various large pieces of plastic and metal were picked up from the shoreline. The hard work and effort put in by the numerous volunteers allowed for a cost savings to the government of more than $24,489.30.

  • Quinn family thankful for community support

    We would like to thank everyone for the love, care and support shown to us after Alex's accident. It was truly amazing to see that so many people care so much.

    To the first responders, thanks so much for the care you gave on the scene and to the Air Evac crew that took him to Louisville. The follow-up visits you made each time you had a run to the hospital meant a lot.

    The staff at the U of L trauma/burn unit were so good at their job and showed such great compassion.

  • Learning to appreciate all seasons

    While it's a little hard to believe judging by the weather we're having, fall arrived more than a week ago. We celebrated my niece Audrey's first birthday with a watermelon picnic-themed party on Saturday, so I'm thankful for the summer-like temperatures.

    But at the same time, I've been so excited for fall this year that I started decorating for it about three weeks in advance. I've already managed to accumulate several pumpkins and gourds that are prominently displayed outside and inside my home.

  • Election time is near

     

    In just a few weeks, Taylor Countians will be asked to choose who will be their governmental leaders for the next several years.

    This year's general election ballot is crammed full. Residents will chose their mayor, judge/executive, jailer, sheriff, magistrates, city council, coroner and the list goes on.

    In the largest race, 21 people want to serve on the city council. That's the most people to file for the 12 seats in a long time.

  • Uniting to help the environment

    What with all the bad news these days - from the Middle East (ISIS) to the NFL (spousal abuse) - it's nice to hear some good news. This one comes from Mother Nature herself in cooperation with some people intent on helping her.

    It seems the ozone layer is getting better.

  • NFL has serious issues off the field

    There are more than a few NFL fans among us here in Taylor County. Many gather around the TV on Sundays, as well as Thursdays and Mondays, to watch professional football. But with the recent behavior of some NFL players, the viewing habits of some people could change, and you couldn't blame them.
