  • It's going to be a good summer

    I'm done with summer, I thought. Sad thing is, at the time, summer was not even here yet.

    It all started the Thursday before Memorial Day when my car died at the grocery store. In the nearly three minutes that I waited for someone to give me a jump, I lost 10 pounds in sweat.

    I assumed my problem was the battery. Friday morning, with a new battery in place, my car ran like a dream - until my wife and I drove to the lake that Saturday. The car stalled on the way home. The battery was drained.

  • Council tables campsite annexations

    Efforts to annex campsites into the City limits have been put on temporary hold.

    Following a nearly 40-minute discussion during a special meeting Monday night, Campbellsville City Council members voted unanimously to table two annexation requests. The Council agreed the matters should be tabled until the Planning and Zoning Commission creates a zone for campsites.

    But the decision didn't come easily. Some Council members displayed mixed feelings on annexing property so far away from town.
