  • Audit finds no serious issues in County Clerk's office


    Kentucky Auditor of Public Accounts Mike Harmon recently released his audit report for the Taylor County Clerk’s Fee Account. 

    The report had a total of six findings, many of which were repeat findings from the previous year. 

    The first finding involved a lack of adequate segregation of duties. This is a finding that was noted last year and in years past. The report notes the condition is a result of a limited budget, “which restricts the number of employees the county clerk can hire or delegate duties to.”

  • Lady Cards' Westbrook makes the cut

    Taylor County junior Addie Westbrook found out just how fickle the sport of golf can be at times.
    Westbrook ended the first round of last week’s KHSAA Girls’ State Golf Championships in a nine-way tie for sixth following a 1-over 73, but the second round at Bowling Green Country Club didn’t go as hoped.
    Westbrook shot an 86 on the second day, dropping into a two-way tie for 15th place with a two-day total of 159.

  • Talk with Holmes spurs Cardinals at state

    On a weekend in which he wound up finishing ninth in the Safeway Open in Napa, California, J.B. Holmes found time to talk to the current golf team of his alma mater, Taylor County High School.
    That talk helped spur the Cardinals to their first boys’ state golf championship in school history last weekend at Bowling Green Country Club. Taylor County rallied from a 10-shot deficit with six holes remaining to stun Louisville St. Xavier, winning by two shots.
