    On Oct. 3, 2007, David McCarty made local, state and national news for his stand against Wal-Mart.
    Prior to that day, McCarty and his wife, Penny, lived on what seemed like a secluded island on Campbellsville Highway. Mounds of dirt sat alongside their neatly manicured yard while the constant sounds of bulldozers filled their once peaceful home.

    Taylora Schlosser has completed her first month as the Marion County Public Schools superintendent, and she reported on that month of activities during the Aug. 13 meeting of the Marion County Board of Education.
