  • Murder victim's family sues Medco

    A civil suit has been filed against a local nursing home, alleging it failed to supervise a former employee who has been charged with murdering her husband.

    Kathleen Wise, 61, of 4203 Bengal Road in Campbellsville, was indicted last July by a Taylor County grand jury and charged with the first-degree murder of her husband, Joseph Kenneth Wise. If convicted, she faces as much as life in prison.

    She has formally pleaded not guilty to the crime, and the prosecution has said it will not seek the death penalty.

  • Warrior Dashed Out? I hope not

    I'm going to open by saying what you are about to read is not the column I wanted to write.

    I wanted to write about how the Warrior Dash was a wonderful experience, about how it showcased our community and about how much I'm looking forward to participating again next year.

    Only I can't.

    Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed the Warrior Dash, and if it does return, I fully intend to do it again. Even if it doesn't return, I'll probably travel to run another one.

  • I am nostalgic

    By Nick Schrager

    I grew up a gamer. I am a gamer.

    The first gaming console my family had was back in the 80's when I was a wee one, the Sega Master System. In fact, I still have it somewhere, minus the electronic pistol it came with, I disassembled that when I was around seven during my phase of taking things apart to find out what made them work.

  • A portion of Helm Schoolhouse Road will be closed Saturday for Warrior Dash

    On Thursday, the Marion County Fiscal Court approved a request to close a portion of Helm Schoolhouse Road on Saturday, June 23, the day of the Warrior Dash.

    The gravel portion of Helm School House Road, between the intersections with Ed Sullivan Road and Popes Creek Road, will be closed from 7 a.m. Saturday morning until the Warrior Dash event has concluded. This is being done to insure emergency vehicles will have access to the race site in the event of an emergency.

    Residents who live on Helm Schoolhouse Road will still have access to their homes.

    Reports were that flames were getting dangerously close to the homes in that specific subdivision. St. Rose Road was temporarily blocked because the flames were so close to the roadway. But the roadway is now open, and the fire is out, according to Emergency Management Director Hayden Johnson.
