Supt. Reed praises CU decision to hire Kim Goodin

It is good to know that she will continue to make a difference in the lives of young people. - ALAN W. REED

Alan Reed writes:
I was very pleased to read that Campbellsville University has selected Ms. Kim Goodin as women's golf coach. Kim retired a year ago from our school district where she had a wonderful career as high school teacher, girls' golf coach and eventually a highly effective assistant principal. It is good to know that she will continue to make a difference in the lives of young people. Kim will be a great addition to the total program at CU. I also know that she will be thrilled to work alongside her wonderful niece, Lauren. - Alan Reed

Players in tax shifting, Human Rights Commission session

2014-08-20 - City Hall, 116 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. Councillor Dr. Ron Rogers left was high spirits as the Council gave a second reading and final approval to a Columbia/Adair County Human Rights Commission ordinance, as was Councillor Charles Grimsley, center, whose Parks & Recreation group stands to gain from approximately $200,000 to be derived by a new Occupational License Tax, which when implemented should generate an additional $1 million in revenues; at far right is Councillor June Parson, who was the lead spokesperson for the outline of the reasoning behind and the plans for a new tax structure. The plan features a lowered Real Estate and Personal Property Tax, continuation of the city's insurance premium tax at its current level, and the implementation of a payroll tax which derives revenue largely from those who work in Columbia but are not residents, at first. The planners anticipate that with the tax more jobs can be created in Columbia, with new payrolls here, hence more tax revenue to be used for the creation of jobs, and on an on until eventually, the disproportion of workers going to surround counties and the very small number coming into to the city will be reversed.

Council adopts recommendation to implement new tax, tax rate

In last night's Columbia City Council Meeting
  • Final step taken to establish Human Rights Commission The Council unanimously approves 2nd reading of ordinance establishing a joint Columbia/Adair County Human Rights Commission, the last action by a local legislative body needed for the establishment of the commission, a body of seven citizen members, two from the city and five from the county, none of whom can be elected or appointed officials.
  • New "Occupational License Tax" ordinance will leave insurance tax at present rate, but dramatically lower real estate and personal property rates. No exact figure for what the payroll tax will generate at 1%, but $1 million per year was frequently suggested. Payroll tax will be paid by all who work in the city, but will not effect retirement, social security, or income earned by investments. Proceeds of the tax will initially be for restricted purposes: 1) Economic Development. 2) Parks and Recreation. 3) Improvements to City Streets, Sidewalks, and Drainage System. 4) Savings to rebuild the City's Rainy Day Fund. 5) General Operating Fund.

Homeplace on Green River: 211 Years in the Making

Homeplace on Green, 5807 New Columbia Road, Campbellsville KY, is now a part of the everyday language of South Central Kentuckians, but many still ask what it's all about. In this comprehensive, the writer, George Kolbenschlag, details most of the answers one needs to know to tell a community visitor, if not so much as one would need to be a docent or guide at the growing South Central Kentucky agri-tourism attraction - or maybe it is.
Homeplace on Green River Fall Festival will again feature Kentucky crafted art, crafts and locally produced items at its Saturday, September 6, 2014, Fall Heritage Festival, open from 8am-4pmCT/9am-5pmET.

By George Kolbenschlag

When Isaac Tate build his home in what is now Taylor County in 1803 he could not have known that 211 years later the land he chose would still be a working farm and one of Kentucky's most promising future tourist attractions. Nor could he have known that students of all ages from surrounding counties would be using his farm, now Homeplace on Green River, as an outdoor classroom. But he probably would have been pleased.

Celia Downey likes Shamarie Claiborne owl pictures

Her own owl, she says, has been elusive, heard, but not seen

Celia Downey writes:
Shamarie, you are the fortunate one to actually see your owl whooo sits in view and then you catch him with your lens. Frustratingly I can only listen to the hoots of my alusive owl since he knows that a camera is poised for the shot. My owl is an evasive one, teasing and hooting from the high branches, while totally hidden. If only one brief glimpse, but sadly he will probably never be seen, only heard. Again, great shot Shamarie, Celia Downey --celia downey
