By Larry Smith, Operations Manager, The Big Dawg 99.9 FM

The first and "old original block" of Campbellsville Ky's Main Street renovation has been completed.

The Big Dawg building was the first building to be renovated in 2006, after that the rest of main street followed suit. The Big Dawg building was built in the mid 1840's before Taylor County was created out of Green County. So that means Campbellsville, KY was created in Green County, Taylor County was cut from Green in 1848.

Marrowbone, KY, eagle photo shot with Nikon P510

Kelli Claypool writes:
In response to George Rice's question: My thanks to George Rice for the nice compliment. It was amazing to see such a majestic bird. I was approximately 500 feet away from the eagle and was able to take quite a few pictures. The camera that I was using is a Nikon P510 with a wide 42x Zoom Nikkor. I hope that answers the question as I am truly an amateur when it comes to photography. - Kelli Claypool
