  • Homelessness a very real problem locally

    Homeless. It's a spot she never thought she'd find herself. The rent was due, the bills were piling up and Debbie Martin simply didn't have enough money to keep up. Soon after, she was evicted.

    Earlier this year, Martin's husband left, leaving a tremendous amount of bills for her to pay alone.

    "I had to sell everything I had in the house to make the next month's rent," Martin said.

    But when the following month's rent came due, Martin realized she wasn't going to be able to keep up.

    "I was devastated. I didn't know what I was going to do."

  • People dont want additional taxes

    I don't know what it means for three area school systems asking for voter endorsement of a "recallable nickel" tax, but last week's ballot results on other issues would not seem to bode well for any measure that would require additional grit from taxpayers.

    If I had sewage laying on the surface of my back yard, I might feel a little differently about annexation than the majority of people in a South Campbellsville precinct who had an opportunity to do something about it.

    The message is, I think: People are not going to vote extra taxes (or expenses) on themselves.
