    There will be no nickel tax election.

    Taylor County School Board voted unanimously not to ask for a nickel tax election during its regular meeting Tuesday night.

  • A tradition of loyalty and bravery

    Veterans Day this year has a sense of urgency about it. This nation is at war.
    And thousands of miles from Kentucky, in the deserts of Iraq and mountains of Afghanistan, soldiers are dying on our behalf and on behalf of all who support right and good in the world.
    The numbers are staggering.
    Last month, we mourned the loss of the 100th Kentuckian killed on military duty in Iraq and Afghanistan since those wars began nine years ago.
    Furthermore, some 75 soldiers from units stationed at Fort Campbell have been killed since they were deployed in March.

  • Toppers upend Tigers 80-57

    Campbellsville University went toe-to-toe with Western Kentucky University in a men’s basketball exhibition Sunday at Diddle Arena for 30-plus minutes, but simply ran out of gas late in an 80-57 loss.

    “We hung in there. I thought we did a lot of good things. This game was to prepare us for what’s coming up, same thing for Western Kentucky. I think both teams come away with what they needed out of this,” CU head coach Keith Adkins said. “We just ran out of gas. We did not have enough fuel left in the tank as far as conditioning-wise.”
