  • Same old party, same 'older' Mom

    When a group of 10-year-old little girls can get the best of me, I'm getting old.

    This past weekend was my daughter's 10th birthday. That also means that it was her sixth sleepover.

    For some unknown reason when Madison turned 5, I agreed to her suggestion that she should be able to invite that many girls. And when she turned 6, that's how many friends she invited. When she turned 8, thank goodness, we put a cap on the invitation list.

  • Haitian relief efforts welcome

    We've known for years that our community is made up of residents who care about others.

    From the various school and sports fundraisers our children participate in to community events such as Relay for Life and Crusade for Children, local residents never hesitate to dig deep into their pockets for others.

    And when there's not enough money to spare, our residents give of their time.

    With the devastating earthquake in Haiti, several local groups are spearheading donation drives to help victims. See the story on today's front page about what you can do to help.

  • CU can't survive cold second half at Georgetown

    Campbellsville University went cold down the second-half stretch and fell 64-51 at Georgetown College on Saturday.

    CU led 23-19 with four minutes to go in the first half and the visiting Tigers took the lead at 35-34 and 37-36 after intermission, but that’s when things started to unravel.

    “For 32 minutes we carried out our game plan pretty good,” CU coach Keith Adkins said, “but then their pressure got to us and we turned it over or took a rushed shot. The good thing is you won’t find very many teams that play defense like Georgetown.”

  • Deadline to file for candidacy is Tuesday

    Those who want to toss their hat into the political arena have less than a week to do so.

    The deadline to file for office is 4 p.m. Tuesday at Taylor County Clerk Mark Carney's office. The filing fee is $50.

    The 2010 Primary Election on May 18 will likely be the second largest election Taylor County voters could likely see, Carney said, because virtually every office is up for grabs.

    With that in mind, Carney is surprised that only 54 candidates have filed so far.
