  • Taylor County Tourist Commission moves office

    The Taylor County Tourist Commission office has moved again. Its new office is located next to the former post office, now Bertram, Cox & Miller law firm, on Main Street.

    The office moved to the former Taylor County Sheriff's Office location at the Taylor County Courthouse last December and has been paying rent.

    The sheriff's office moved to the second floor of the courthouse after Taylor Circuit Clerk Rodney Burress moved his office to the Taylor County Judicial Center.

    The Taylor County Youth Horse Show is for children of all ages.

    The show, which begins at 3 p.m. at the Taylor County Fairgrounds, will feature costume and stick horse contests as well as lead line and other classes. Some have no entry fees, while others are $2.

  • Cal's Cats score, but not in classroom

    The University of Kentucky's 4-year, $32 million dollar man hired to rejuvenate the men's basketball program has succeeded in satisfying the Big Blue Nation's desire to be the best in the nation - or at least as close as West Virginia let them get to the top.

    No one can argue that Coach Cal hasn't restored the shine and luster to what the Cats do on the court.

    But someone, preferably Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart, should at least raise an eyebrow at how Cal's Cats are performing in the hallowed halls of academics at UK.

  • Underwood is Bible drill winner

    Megan Underwood, daughter of Doug and Darrelyn Underwood, was a state winner in the Children's Bible Drill competition sponsored by the Kentucky Baptist Convention.

    She competed in the state Bible Drill at Calvary Baptist Church in Lexington on May 8 and became a winner by giving more than 20 correct responses to the 24 questions posed.

    To be able to compete at the state level, she first had to win the church drill at her home church of Salem Baptist and then win the Taylor County Baptist Associational Children's Bible Drill.
