Today's Opinions

  • Celebrating our freedom

     

    John "Bam" Carney

    State Representative

    We are only a day away from marking the 238th anniversary of our Declaration of Independence, when a young nation stood up against the oppression of the British monarchy and sought to create a country "for the people, and by the people."

  • In need of a hug?

     

    She sits among several of her fellow residents at the long-term care facility I visit, ensconced in her wheel chair, sometimes napping, sometimes staring.

    I suppose I've walked past her dozens of times, greeting her with a casual "Hello," or "How are you?" I can't say I've taken the time to wait for a response. I've felt her tired eyes following me as I've quickly disappeared around the corner and down the hallway.

    But this day, she stopped me cold in my tracks.

  • Education shouldn't bury students in loan debt

    About 1.6 million students will graduate from college this year, according to The National Center for Education Statistics. They will be searching for full-time work, but the odds are stacked against them. Although the job market is improving, competition is fierce and jobs are scarce and the U.S. Labor Department says unemployment among 2013 graduates is still high at 10.9 percent. In addition to those concerns, college graduates are saddled with student loan debt - it has passed the trillion-dollar mark - and often credit card debt.

  • Library thanks "How-To Festival" supporters

    The Taylor County Public Library would like to thank all of those that helped in any way during our first ever "How to Festival."

  • TCHS Project Graduation thanks supporters

    Taylor County High School Project Graduation was May 23. The event was a huge success with a large majority of the senior class present. Our main goal was a night of safe fun for the seniors to enjoy with their fellow classmates after graduation. Thanks to so many sponsors in Campbellsville and surrounding areas, we had a tremendous selection of food, many enjoyable games, a free photo booth for the kids and prizes too numerous to mention. We also want to thank all the volunteers who generously gave their time to assist in any way at project graduation.

  • Reader thanks Fire & Rescue

    I would like to thank Taylor County Fire & Rescue.

    When I was desperate and helpless on May 22, as I was awakened by the powerful microburst storm that was taking away part of my house. The roof and telephone were gone with it. I couldn't call anywhere for help, when they came to my door and rescued me. Thank you.

  • Reader enjoyed historic sports article

    I read Bobby Brockman's article on the COKES team of 50 years ago. That was a good year as were some of the earlier teams. Before TV in the 40s and 50s, they were the "only game in town" literally. This carried over till the days Willard Smith spoke about. Lots of good players came through the Cokes in those years.

    We have lost something with the passing of those teams. High school and college ball is a good replacement, but not quite the same. I am sure it is not an age thing!

  • Family thankful for prayers during recent surgery

    Kayden Clark and family would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support during Kayden's recent surgery to remove a brain tumor.

    A special thanks to everyone that donated to the Kayden Clark Medical Fund, and those who sold raffle tickets and organized the benefit auction.

    Thanks to Boils Realty for helping with the benefit auction.

    Thank you.
