  • People who help people

    Stella Porter lives a simple life.
    She shies away from the limelight. She’s more of a behind-the-scenes person. But, the work she does in her community and in her church doesn’t go unnoticed.
    In fact, this Saturday Porter will be receiving the Genevieve Boone Award at the 2013 African American Catholic Leadership Awards Banquet. This award is given to an individual who has been a trailblazer in the areas of cultural enrichment, education and formation.

  • Peachy Keene

    As a Lebanon Police Officer, Henry Keene has seen the effects drugs and poor decisions can have on individuals and the community.
    As the Lebanon DARE Officer, he tries to teach children how to make good decisions.
    “It’s teaching kids to make decisions when nobody’s looking,” Keene said. “When they are under peer pressure, are they able to evaluate and respond and make a good decision?”
    Keene, 46, said DARE did not exist when he was growing up, and he thinks about that whenever he arrests someone close to his own age.

  • Marion County will not accept Taylor County animals

    In light of the recent announcement that the Taylor County Animal Shelter will no longer adopt out animals, the Marion County Fiscal Court wants it publicly known that the Marion County Animal Shelter will not accept animals from Taylor County.
    The magistrates said the Marion County shelter should verify with a driver’s license that only Marion County residents are dropping off animals at the Marion County shelter.

  • State Department of Agriculture investigates Taylor County Animal Shelter

    Taylor County Animal Shelter has come under fire again, this time for whether it misused state grant funding to build a shelter that will soon no longer offer pets for adoption.
    Shawn Moffitt was one of two Campbellsville residents who spearheaded a protest recently at the Taylor County Animal Shelter.
    But James Comer, commissioner of the state Department of Agriculture, says the $150,000 grant the shelter received to build its new facility does not require that animals be up for adoption at the facility.
