Today's Opinions

  • Reif says animal shelter doing things right

    This letter is in response to an email sent to the members of the Taylor County SPCA and to all animal lovers in Taylor County.

  • Reaching out to serve the world

    "And he said to them, 'Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.'"

    -Mark 16:15

     

    In today's issue, you can read a story about Zion Separate Baptist Church and their support for the Village of Nassian on Africa's Ivory Coast.

    Although the congregation is fairly small, with about 70 who attend every Sunday, their donations have funded 95 percent of the construction of a new church in Nassian.

  • Holmes a class act on PGA Tour

    I've heard it said that golf is a good walk spoiled.

    I have to say I don't agree, and although I'm not what you'd consider a good golfer, I enjoy playing from time to time.

    This past week, I spent six days on the course at Valhalla Golf Club covering the PGA Championship. I got to see the best golfers in the world, and I realized just how bad my game actually is when compared to someone who plays for a living, and to be honest, that was no surprise.

  • Making Campbellsville proud

     

    "Hey, that's J.B. Holmes from Campbellsville!"

    Those words were heard more often than you might think at the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club on Tuesday.

    For anyone from Campbellsville, it might not seem like a big deal. After all, it's just J.B., or as most folks around town know him, John. But when you consider that he's playing on a worldwide stage, it's quite impressive that so many people are rooting for him.

  • Saying goodbye to summer

     

    I still remember it - the excitement of the first day of school.

    My school supplies were ready. I had carefully picked out a backpack, pencils, notebooks and markers.

    I loved milk breaks, reading and playground time. It was always nice to be in a homeroom with someone I knew, but I also enjoyed meeting new friends.

  • Sharing the stories

     

    As a reporter, there are some stories you just don't want to write.

    Bad stuff happens, and it's our job to report it. But that doesn't mean it's fun and we enjoy it.

    I've heard people question why we have published such and such story. They've also asked why those stories have to be printed on the front page.

  • Homeless shelter thanks supporters

    Green River Ministries homeless shelter board members wish to thank the 27 men and women who came to Campbellsville Country Club to play in the golf scramble.

  • Reader praises reporter's work

    I write to commend Miss Calen McKinney for her coverage of important matters to readers of the Central Kentucky News-Journal.

    Her front-page article about Campbellsville University in the July 23 issue is an illustration of her expert journalism. Miss Calen did not report "hearsay" information, but instead did much research in order for readers to be better informed about a major issue facing all of us in Taylor County and elsewhere.
