  • KUDO: Crusade for Children

    Taylor Countians continue to step up in tough times.

    This past weekend's Crusade for Children drive raised nearly $31,000. Although that number was down from last year's $38,000, it's still a significant amount in this time of economic hardship.

    Considering the fact that firefighters didn't go door to door this year, that makes the effort even more impressive.

  • It's your time to shine, graduates

    This week and next mark the official end of childhood for area high school seniors. They'll be considered "grownups" now.

    Adulthood is now staring them in the face.

  • Crusade for Children

    Daniel Lovett and Campbellsville Mayor Brenda Allen help collect donations for the local WHAS Crusade for Children drive last Friday.

    At $30,748.93, donations in Taylor County were down from last year's $38,000.

    Campbellsville Fire Chief Allen Johnson believes the drop was due to the fact that there were no door-to-door collections this year.

    Statewide, $5.3 million was raised, the highest total since 2005.
