  • Don't sit back and do nothing

    Change is not an easy principle for many. Change forces us out of our secure comfort zones. Nevertheless, change is a critical part of everyday life. Without the comprehension of change, many important factors of our life would not be present. Some of these factors fall within range of new technology, medical research, and even new, more efficient methods of transportation. Change is an inevitable part of life. Without the desire for change, our country would not be the democratic and empowering nation we all love.

  • Memorial golf scramble a success

    On behalf of the Campbellsville Kiwanis Club and the family of Doug Mullins, we would like to give a special thank you for all those who participated to help make our first annual Doug Mullins Memorial Golf Scramble a success.

    Thank you to the following sponsors:

  • Vote for Price

    For the first time, perhaps since Alben Barkley, Kentucky has an opportunity to elect a candidate with real integrity to the U.S. Senate, a candidate who's not afraid to take a stand on controversial issues and one who has the vision to lead Kentucky forward. That candidate is Darlene Fitzgerald Price.

    The fact that this candidate is a woman makes this opportunity all the more exciting. Darlene Fitzgerald Price is the only candidate in Kentucky's U.S. Senate race who's a woman, a veteran and has had actual experience at the federal level of government.

  • Nickel levy explanation

    Following is an explanation of what the nickel levy would be spent for:

    The Nickel levy is 5 cents on $100 worth of assessed property value. This will be $50 a year on an assessed $100,000 property. This would provide $470,000 per year additional revenue for the Taylor County School District. The money would be used to bond or finance $5 million worth of building projects.

  • This community cares about others

    It's one thing to contribute time or money to a fundraiser. It's another to go without - just like the people you're trying to help.

    Nearly 70 students last week went without food for 30 hours. That's a long time - especially for growing teenagers.

    These teens were trying to raise money to help put a stop to world hunger. And raise money is just what they did - enough to feed more than 80 children for an entire year.
