  • Former CKNJ writer on hand for Holmes' Wells Fargo win

     

    I would never have dreamed it in 1975, when in the dead of winter, I moved from South Carolina to Campbellsville and rented a farmhouse from Bess and Clement Whitlock.

    But here I was in late April and early May at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, N.C., working as a volunteer - as I have for the past seven years - for the Wells Fargo Championship.

    This year, however, proved to be extra special at the fabulously beautiful and lush green golf course that some say rivals even Augusta National and the Masters as THE tournament on the PGA tour.

  • A dose of reality

     

    They watched as their friends, one by one, died tragic deaths. And as obituary after obituary was read, the message sunk in.

    Most of the teenagers lost their lives in car crashes, from drinking and driving or texting while behind the wheel. We all know we shouldn't do either, but, for some reason, people still test their limits sometimes.

    And that's why teenagers - and adults - need the message sent at the recent Ghost Out at Campbellsville High School and mock crash at Taylor County High School.

  • McCracken PVA encourages voters to elect Chad Shively

    I am writing this letter on behalf of Chad Shively, PVA. I have been employed in the McCracken County PVA office for the past 37 years and have served as PVA for 21 years. I met Chad several years ago and was immediately impressed with his work ethic and desire to serve Taylor County.

    I supported Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear appointing him last year and have watched the wonderful things that he has accomplished since assuming that position.

  • Fayette PVA encourages voters to elect Chad Shively

    Chad Shively has implemented more innovative solutions and new technologies, in the shortest period of time, than any PVA I've ever seen.

    I have worked with Chad on many occasions and we regularly attend the same continuing education courses, and I have consistently been impressed with his intelligence, hard work and enthusiasm for the job. I have watched him closely over the past year and have been amazed at what good work he's done and how quickly he learned the job.

  • Resident encourages voters to elect Chad Shively

    In a time when our world seems to be falling apart and our government is straying from God, elections become very important to our society.

  • Resident encourages voters to elect Max Wise

    It gives me a great deal of pleasure to encourage Taylor County Republicans to head to the polls on Tuesday, May 20, and vote for my friend, Max Wise, for Kentucky State Senate.

    It has been more than 50 years since Taylor County was represented in Frankfort by a senator from Taylor County. Fortunately, on Tuesday, May 20, 2014, Taylor County Republicans have a unique opportunity to send one of our own to Frankfort.

  • Take pride in Kentucky Derby

    This is a special week to be a Kentuckian. If we didn't get enough attention for our college basketball teams during the recent NCAA tournament, now comes an even bigger stage, another way to shine the spotlight on the Bluegrass State.
