  • Campbellsville University professor appears in 'Lincoln'

     Imagine keeping a secret as big as being in a Steven Spielberg film to yourself for a year.

    Dr. Reese Land, associate professor of music/trumpet in Campbellsville University’s School of Music, did just that. And he is now able to talk about his role in the newly released movie “Lincoln” starring Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis and directed by Steven Spielberg, who has been called one of America’s most popular and influential filmmakers in the history of cinema.

  • NASA COLUMN: Carbon's travels

     If you weigh 100 pounds, 18 pounds of you is pure carbon. Plants are almost half carbon. Even pure carbon (that is, carbon not combined with anything else) comes in many forms, such as coal, charcoal, even diamonds. Carbon is versatile. Carbon moves. 

  • Solving the special taxing district issue

    It’s important to understand a question before formulating an answer.

    State Auditor Adam Edelen made several questions very clear last week about Kentucky’s special taxing districts after his office spent six months developing a report on what it calls ghost governments.

    Among them: What is a special taxing district? How many exist in Kentucky? Who oversees them?

    How does the public get information about how they spend public money?

    What’s the process for dissolving a district?

  • Construction work planned on Valley Creek Road

     Kentucky Transportation Cabinet crews will begin working on a section of KY 567 (Valley Creek Road) to stabilize an embankment slide beginning Monday, Dec. 3. 

    The location is about one mile east from the KY 210 intersection.  The road will be reduced to one lane during daytime hours while work is taking place.  This project will take about two weeks to complete.   Signs will be posted from each direction on approach to the work zone.  Motorists should reduce their speed and watch for flaggers to direct one-way traffic. 

  • COLUMN: Beef producers need good records

     Improved prices will usually add to profitability, but for some beef producers, a more important thing would be to start keeping records.

    While it is important to keep good farm records, it is also vital to occasionally have a timely analysis of them. Producers can then identify areas of needed improvements in their beef operation.  

  • COLUMN: Will Christmas come this year?

     The calendar says that Christmas is coming. Many signs point to its approach, but will Christmas come this year? Dec. 25 will arrive, but I fear that Christmas will not come in the hearts of many people.

    Granted, the commercial side of Christmas is already here. Billions of dollars were spent the day after Thanksgiving.

    The social side of Christmas is here with all the parties and the travel - despite the gasoline prices. Christmas is being celebrated in churches too. The decorations, carols, dramas and music programs tell us the Christmas season is here.
