Today's Opinions

  • Fulton County PVA supports Chad Shively

    This letter comes from far western Kentucky from the PVA in Fulton County, and is written to endorse Chad Shively for Taylor County PVA.

    Chad took office May 17, 2013, after serving 10 years in the Taylor County PVA office.

  • Former resident supports Chad Shively for PVA

    I have been a citizen of Taylor County all of my life until my husband's job required us to move last year. I have known Chad Shively, current PVA, for almost four years. During these years, Chad has become a mentor to my husband and I. I have watched him faithfully serve his community in more than one way.

    He serves his family, friends, church and church communities in Taylor County, as well as other states. I can list numerous reasons to keep Chad as PVA, but I will focus on just a few; character, reputation and qualifications are what I would like to focus on.

  • A real game changer

    “I can’t believe they lost,” I moaned after my favorite college football team went down in defeat. “Now they for sure won’t make it to the new four-team playoff system,” I continued to grumble.

    Sensing I was descending into a sports fanatic’s funk, my wife suggested we rent an uplifting movie, “Million Dollar Arm.”

  • Remember to thank a teacher

    It happened 19 years ago, but I can still remember how mad I was when we dropped my sister off at school on her first day of fifth grade. It was also my first day of pre-school, and I had waited so long that I couldn’t bear to wait a few more hours before stepping into my first classroom.

  • Grider family thanks community, supporters

    We, the family of Anthony "Tony" Grider, wish to express our most heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all of the amazing people who have been by our side physically or spiritually during Tony's battle to heal, his eventual journey home to our Father, and the continued support today.

  • Don't take food off the table

    It's been a while since I was a boy in school, but I still remember the fun we all had when the occasion called for a classroom party. Every year at Halloween, Christmas or Valentine's Day, or just about any reason to have a party, it seemed we did.

  • Coming home

     

    I can't believe it's been nearly 10 years since I graduated from college.

    I remember my college days well. Sleeping in because I had late classes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Working a job at a store in town and being a writer for the campus newspaper. Being able to go home before dark on the days I didn't have to work.

    College years are full of carefree days when your most important job is figuring out what you want to do with your life.

  • 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.
