  • Where is the creative thinking?

    Watching Judge Brent at the Sept. 20 Campbellsburg City Council meeting was interesting.  He was there to request funds from Campbellsburg for the further development of the Kentucky 55 Campbellsburg Industrial Park.  Perhaps if he had not allocated so many funds to “Brent Park” he would not have  had to request funds from the city council.
