Today's Opinions

  • Mayor answers criticism by former mayor

    I appreciate Brenda Allen raising the issue of the city's surplus funds or, lack thereof, when I took office in January 2011.

    My statements at the [Campbellsville/Taylor County] Chamber [of Commerce] luncheon were accurate. The city had no reserves when I took office in January 2011.

  • State needs to overhaul jury duty pay

    Imagine you run a company and once a month you must cast a net for a new pool of temporary workers. You send letters and notify potential hires to report for a meeting, where they will learn if they make the final cut. They could miss time at their regular jobs, and they would be paid only $12.50 a day for the special assignment at your company.

  • The good ol' days

    Twenty-five years. It's hard to believe, and, as I look back, it just doesn't seem like it's been that long. Really, it doesn't even feel like I should be much older than 25, and it sure doesn't seem like I should be 25 years removed from my high school graduation.

  • Why we celebrate

    CKNJ Editorial Board

    The past week has been full of celebration. And what a celebration it was.

    With perfect weather, thousands of people came to Taylor County last week for our annual Fourth of July celebration.

    The events spanned a week, from singings and concerts to parades to games to food to hot air balloons to fireworks.

    But throughout the celebration, the feeling that we were all free to enjoy the holiday is one we're sure everyone felt.

  • Up, up and away

     

    Balloonist's Prayer

    "The winds have welcomed you with softness.

    The sun has blessed you with his warm hands.

    You have flown so high and so well,

    That God has joined you in laughter,

    And he has set you gently back again,

    Into the loving arms of Mother Earth."

  • K-Country Showdown showcases local talent

     

    From The Band Perry to Willie and Waylon, the notes struck a chord with everyone who came out to listen to the 33rd annual K-Country Showdown last Thursday. Part of Campbellsville's Fourth of July Celebration, the event is popular among country music fans and supporters of local talent.

  • Wife thanks those who honored, remembered her husband

     I am writing this letter to thank you for the coverage and the article that was written about my husband, Stephen Green. I want to give a special thank you to Calen McKinney for her choice of photo that was used in the initial coverage that appeared in the Monday, June 9, paper. The photo was non-intrusive and tactful, making it easy for the family and also our friends.

  • Library staff thanks helpers

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