  • A sure bet for Derby or anytime you need a treat

    When I get asked where I grew up and answer Campbellsville, very few people know where it is right off. Unless they’ve visited Green River Lake, know someone that attended Campbellsville University or track Amazon packages through the distribution centers, most don’t really know the exact location.

  • Letters: Pension rhetoric is wrong

    Park does not care for the pension rhetoric
    The rhetoric this past week has been fascinating. The passage of Senate Bill 151 has been labeled “unethical,” developed in “secret meetings” and passed in the dead of the night without actuarial analysis or any time to read the bill. Some have even stated that attaching Senate Bill 1 to Senate Bill 151 was illegal. None of this is true.
