  • Police offer summer safety tips

    Campbellsville Police Department says there are dangers to children in and around cars that residents should know.

    One of those dangers is hyperthermia, or heat stroke, from being left unattended in a parked vehicle, according to a news release.

    "Never leave children alone in the car - not even at the convenience store with the engine running. Vehicles heat up quickly - even with a window rolled down two inches, if the outside temperature is in the low 80s, the temperature inside the vehicle can reach deadly levels in only 10 minutes."

  • Pets, farm animals need protection from extreme heat


    These may be the dog days of summer, but they are anything but good days for dogs and other animals.

    Temperatures have soared to more than 100 degrees in recent days, and while people have had to deal with the extreme heat, it has also presented a challenge for four-legged creatures to keep cool and stay safe.

    A local veterinarian says it’s important to be prepared to care for pets in the summer heat.

  • Wise wants murder trial moved

    The Campbellsville woman accused of killing her husband with an overdose of liquid morphine has asked that her murder trial be moved to out of Taylor County because of pre-trial publicity.

    If her request isn’t approved, the woman says she believes her right to a fair trial will be jeopardized.

    Kathleen Wise, 61, of 4203 Bengal Road, was indicted in July 2011 by a Taylor County grand jury and charged with the first-degree murder of her husband, Joseph. If convicted, she faces as much as life in prison.
