• Wife says there is life after Parkinson's disease

    I enjoyed reading the article about Mr. Eon on Parkinson's disease. I appreciate him sharing his story.

    He is right, you need to stay active, doing therapy and having a daily routine. There is no known cure for Parkinson's now. You have to learn to live with it.

  • Reader disagrees with churches on Boy Scout issue

    I was very disappointed to see that some churches have chosen not to take a stand against the homosexual agenda that has recently reared its head in the Boy Scouts.

    Mr. Sanford's comment about being surprised that "the possibility of a policy change captured so much attention" demonstrates that there is a disconnect with reality. A policy change that contradicts the very belief system that the organization was founded upon SHOULD draw attention!

  • Business thanks residents for support of benefit

    A big thank you to the residents of Campbellsville. During the month of May, Super Wash car washes across the country participated in an annual food raiser. A portion of the proceeds is donated to local food pantries.

    We are thrilled to announce the national donations totaled $54,735. A donation has been made in the amount of $199.50 to your local food pantry.

    Thanks Campbellsville for your patronage, which resulted in this donation.

  • Gorin thanks golf scramble supporters

    The Hiestand House-Taylor County Museum Board of Directors would like to thank Mike Kehoe, the Campbellsville Country Club and the teams of golfers for a successful golf scramble on June 14.

  • Facility appreciates police assistance

    I would like to express our sincere appreciation to the Campbellsville Police Department, and especially officer Bart Gilpin, for a job well done during a stressful event that took place at Jackson Street Towers.

    Last weekend, we had a resident who was missing. After searching and realizing we needed further help, officer Bart Gilpin responded. He was very knowledgeable in the steps that needed to be followed while being very kind and patient.

  • TCHS thanks Project Graduation supporters

    On Friday, May 28, at Taylor County High School, 257 young people received their high school diplomas. On Saturday, May 29, those same young people, now high school graduates, woke up - alive and well - to start the next chapter in their lives. This was because, in large part, to the success of Project Graduation.

  • CHS thanks Project Graduation supporters

    On behalf of the 2013 Campbellsville High School Project Graduation Committee, we would like to thank the following contributors:

  • Reader wants park operated by private company

    I wonder if anyone has ever thought of privatizing Miller Park. I say this from strictly an economic angle.

    The park costs the city money, about $250,000 per year, unless the budget is amended to cover said costs. By cutting the budget by $250,000, economic stimulus would soon follow.

  • Board chair addresses superintendent's contract

    In response to Mr. DeWitt’s recent letter to the editor regarding the Taylor County Board of Education, I would like to set the record straight by answering the questions asked in his letter.

    First, I have served for the past 20 years on the Taylor County Board of Education and have had the pleasure to work with two excellent superintendents. Both men deserved the money they earned.

    Since your comments centered on our current superintendent, I will focus on him.

  • Heroin a serious problem in Taylor County

    As some already know, there’s a highly addictive illicit drug, heroin, in our community. If this brings to mind scenes from some large city, think again.

    Ask our local officials, law enforcement or your health care provider and they will confirm there has been a dramatic increase in the use of this dangerous drug.

    Why the increase in heroin you might ask? Of course, there’s never a simple answer to a drug problem, but there’s two possible thoughts on this.
