  • Now that's good business!

     

    You’ve heard the old saying, “the customer is always right,” but is that still the case when the customer presents an ad with a sale price that is 40 years old?

    Apparently, yes it is.

    That’s exactly what happened at Druther’s in Campbellsville recently, as a customer walked in with an ad from this newspaper that was originally published back in 1977.

  • Education is key when it comes to syringe exchange programs

     “Why would you give a needle to a drug addict?”

    Admittedly, I once thought that was a very stupid question. It would just enable an addict, make it easier for them to do their drug of choice. Why make needles easier to get? These were all thoughts I had when I first heard about syringe exchange programs.

    And so when I hear people express these thoughts, I don’t automatically discredit them, because it wasn’t that long ago that I thought the exact same thing.

  • Organ donors give the gift of life

     

    My dad has had a change of heart recently.

    Actually, he received a new heart via transplant on Sept. 29.

    In a way, it had been a long time coming, but in other ways, the wait was extremely short.

    Dad’s heart problems began when I was in high school, and he was about to turn 37 years old.

    In the summer of 1988, I was gone on a trip with friends to Charleston, South Carolina. My parents were home and my mom was getting ready to go to a friend’s wedding just up the street from our house.

  • Attending government meetings effective way to have voice heard

    I have covered city and county government for the Central Kentucky News-Journal for nearly a year now, and there’s still one thing that always surprises me when I attend those meetings.

    I still get surprised by how many people want to vent their frustration and dismay about something either the Campbellsville City Council or Taylor County Fiscal Court implemented at one of its meetings.

  • Citizen would like to see syringe exchange program implementd
  • Reader is not a fan of newspaper's editorial

    Recent guest editorials and articles in the CKNJ have taken a definite politically hard left wing bias lately.

  • Our Fourth is fabulous!

     

    Not being from Campbellsville, I don’t have the memories many of you have growing up here.

    You recall things from 10, 20, 30 or more years ago, and you remember the good old days.

    However, in some cases, the good old days may not have been as good as the days we are experiencing right now. Take the Fourth of July, for example.

  • School district should name superintendent finalists

    The Taylor County Board of Education is getting its superintendent search underway, as it was announced Monday night that 12 candidates had placed their names into the mix to be the leader of the district.

    The process is just in the early stages, and a superintendent is not expected to be announced until the beginning of June. There is still a lot to be discussed and evaluated moving forward, but one thing the board should keep in mind as this process unfolds is transparency.
