• Who's in charge of subdivision regulations?

    Recently I ran into a conflict regarding restrictions on our subdivision. I called every official I could to find out how to get the issue resolved. Ultimately, I was told that if it was in reference to adherence to the restrictions or covenant made when the subdivision was formed, I would probably have to file a lawsuit against that person for there was no one to enforce the rules.

  • Don't ignore the will of the people

    The elections of fall 2010 have long been over, and the new members of Congress have been in their seats since January. Nevertheless, it still appears that there are openly hostile relations between various members of Congress and the two political parties as a whole.

    This comes at the expense of the great citizens of this fine country who want and need to be more involved with the decision making of our nation, above and beyond merely voting for those who will make all of the decisions, which is very little power indeed.

  • Public library thanks

    The Taylor County Public Library would like the thank Chase McBride from WVLC "the Big Dawg" for drawing the prize winners for the summer reading program, and thanks to the Big Dawg for donating two tickets from Kentucky Down Under.

    Thanks to WVLC, WCKQ, and WGRK for the radio coverage for the summer reading program. We would also like to thank CKNJ for the excellent service that they give to the library. Without radio and newspaper coverage, we would not be able to have the large number of children and adults come to our programs at the library.

  • Sheriff's office thanks

    The Taylor County Sheriff's Office and the American Red Cross would like to thank the community for all of their help in making our recent blood drive a success.

    We want to personally thank everyone who attended and supported the blood drive. Thanks to your help, we exceeded our goal. A special thank you to the following sponsors:

    Central Kentucky News-Journal, The Big Dawg radio station, Campbellsville Goodyear, Disco's Barber Shop, Community Trust Bank, Kroger and Gate Petroleum Co.

  • Needs of the students being overlooked

    I have always been a supporter of good education and proper training of our children. I have been much disappointed of late in our school system and some of those who are running it. I am speaking of the Campbellsville System.

    It seems that the real needs of the students are being overlooked, except by a few really dedicated teachers. All of our funds are being placed more on sports and the cliques they create than on the assurance of good education. Counselors seem less concerned with some and are failing the real needs of those who need it most.

  • Hiestand House thanks

    The Hiestand House-Taylor County Museum's Golf Scramble was a success, raising funds for the servants' quarters.

  • Great medical care

    Blessings on Taylor Regional Hospital and the medical profession in our community. Last week during my rotation as TRH Chaplain, I needed medical attention myself.

    We should all be grateful for the medical education, training and experience of our local physicians. Thanks to them, I'll be able to do my next chaplain's service in October.

    Robert S. Clark, M.Div., Ed.D.


  • Health fair a good deal

    I want to thank Taylor Regional Hospital, all of the health care providers and anyone else involved with the health screenings at Taylor County Middle School on June 11.

    My wife and I took advantage of the blood work offered for $12. Though we have medical insurance, we still saved considerably over the normal cost of having such work completed. For those without health insurance and, perhaps, without a job, the screenings were quite likely a godsend.

  • Tourism thanks

    A very special thanks goes out to the Taylor County Tourism office for showcasing Campbellsville and Taylor County to the Southern Divisional Team Bass Tournament.

    I had the great pleasure of meeting most of the fishermen and their families during their stay here at beautiful Green River Lake. Our community got a great economic uplift while these families were here. Hopefully this will lead to many more opportunities for our business community to cash in on what we have to offer our tourists when they come to town.

  • CHS Class of 2011 thanks

    Local businesses and community support has once again provided a safe environment for the Campbellsville High School Class of 2011 to celebrate graduation night. More than 90 percent of the graduating class returned to enjoy games, food, comedy stage hypnosis by Mark Comley and an auction led by Ronnie and Hunter Yates.    

    The Campbellsville High School Class of 2011 parents and students would like to thank the following businesses, churches and friends of the community who showed their support and generously donated to Project Graduation.
