  • Disappointed in alcohol decision

    My name is Mae Kearney and I have lived in Taylor County most of my life. I lived in Green County briefly when I was a small child. I was totally disappointed in our county, when I saw the headlines of our local paper on Monday, Oct. 20 making a big deal of the first drink of alcohol legally served in Campbellsville in 71 years.

    Recently, there was a big issue about smoking in restaurants. So now you cannot smoke in restaurants, but you can drink alcohol. Isn't this trading one evil for another?

  • Things won't change just because it's legal

    If anyone assumes since it is now legal to sell alcoholic drinks with a meal at licensed restaurants in Campbellsville that it will stop the trips to "wet" counties for the usual drinking and buying of six packs, whiskey and wine, I have to say, "You live in a dream world."

  • Actually think before choosing

    For those who listen to mainstream media such as NBC, CBS and ABC, you do not get the truth. They make up the news instead of reporting it. The truth of Obama's policies is to remove any reference to God, to support and provide to abort/kill babies. He also voted if a baby lives through a botched abortion to kill them as well. He will and does provide for and support the homosexual lifestyle. He says they should receive special treatment and funds the same as a man/woman in marriage.

  • David Boswell is most qualified

    With the mess this country is in under a Republican president and the mess our ex-Republican governor left the state in, why would we want to turn the country over to more Republicans?

  • See you at the polls

    I'm sure most of your readers are as relieved as I am that this election campaign is drawing to a close. My stomach is beginning to turn at the television ads every time I hear the various ridiculous promises along with the statement, "My name is XXXXX and I approved this message." And the talking heads on the political commentary programs are just about as nauseous. Newspapers aren't quite so bad; at least I can turn to the comics section and read the real funnies.

  • It's the behind-the-scenes that amazes

    We probably saw you. And after this past weekend in Campbellsville, there's a good chance we did. Between the fall festival at The Homeplace on Green River, the Taylor County Marching Band Invitational and 2nd Sunday, and that's not counting individual church and other organizations' events, there should have been something to interest just about anyone. And we hope you were there.

  • It's time to be responsible

    OK, so now it’s here. What are we going to do with it?

    Back in May, City voters chose to allow the sale of alcohol by the drink. Many were in favor of it; still many others opposed.

    The “fors” got it.

    And now, last Friday, the first restaurant to obtain a liquor license – Café Bonin - served its first drink.

  • Vote for Boswell

    If you are like me, you have watched with a sense of disgust and disbelief over the past few weeks as the results of the last 14 years of Republican greed, and shortsightedness have come home to roost. You remember the "Republican Revolution of 1994," don't you?

    We as voters in the 2nd Congressional District have stood by and watched as the Republicans and their "trickle down economics" have literally sold us out year by year with subsidies and tax breaks to the very companies that we made great, so that "we could compete in the world market."
