Adult Education Center offers free college prep classes

By LeAnna Bennett

The Adair County Adult Education Center, 108 Lindsey Wilson Street, is offering free college prep classes for any individual who is entering college this Fall.

For those students who did not benchmark on the ACT, this is an opportunity to refresh your skills and potentially test out of basic/developmental classes, which will save you time and money in college. The class begins on June 3, 2013. If you would like to register for this class, or for more information, please contact the center at 270-384-7475 or 270-384-1741 by Thursday, May 30, 2013. - LeAnna Bennett

Campbellsville's Cody Wood at top of telecommunicator class

From CPD Communications 911 Center

The Campbellsville Police Department (CPD) - announced on May 24, 2013, the graduation of Mr. Cody Wood of Campbellsville, KY, from the Department of Criminal Justice Training (DOCJT) Basic Telecommunicator Academy during a ceremony Friday May 24, 2013, on the campus of Eastern Kentucky University. Wood graduated as "Valedictorian" of the class of twenty-four telecommunicator in recognition of his maintenance of an academic grade average over 98 percent.

Wood, a Police Communications Officer I, joined the staff at CPD Communications 911 Center on September 10, 2012. He is one of twelve members of the Communications Center.

Dubbed the "lifeline" of law enforcement, the Communications 911 Center at the Campbellsville Police Department is precisely that - an immediate, 24-hour connection for the citizen and the responder to an expert Police Communications Officer - whenever the need for law enforcement service arises. The CPD Communications 911 Center functions under the authority of the Chief through a joint agreement between the Mayor, County Judge Executive, City Council and Fiscal Court, providing communications and dispatch for law enforcement and emergency management agencies in Taylor County, Kentucky. The center delivers the most timely, effective, and efficient response to every life and/or propertythreatening emergency occurring within the county.

Police Communications Manager Anne Sanders stated, "Police Communications Officers are the consummate multi-taskers; simultaneously taking calls for service, maintaining radio contact with first responders for their safety and support in the field, while continuously updating the criminal justice and public safety databases". Mayor Tony Young said, "It's no surprise; these professionals have earned the name 'behind the scenes heroes'."

CPD Communications also provide radio contact, records, and CJIS information for the Taylor County Sheriff's Office. As with all emergency services, the mission of the CPD Communications 911 Center is to protect the welfare of the citizens of Campbellsville and Taylor County. CPD Communications maintains service requests for the Campbellsville and Taylor County Fire &Rescue Departments and the Campbellsville- Taylor County Emergency Medical Service.

Chief Tim Hazlette applauds the members of the Communications 911 Center by adding, "In emergency and non-emergency circumstances, Campbellsville Police Communications Officers serve their fellow citizens with clarity, with competency, and with sensitivity to their particular needs”.

Jackson Brower on Backyard Oil: T. Coomer coming into greatness

Episode 4: Coomer's real life bio is fantastic itself. Latest episode again shows entertaining talent of Brent Yates, and Jimmy Reliford is magnificent, as usual, in the creekbed checker scene. The episode left us hanging, wondering if Maddog will make it out of the cave he dreads so much. 'Caves hide all kind of critters,' Maddog says.

Coomer has Fun with Mayor Clifton's Vibrating Oil Trees

Dateline, May 28 - Having missed episode 4 on TV, I watched it online instead, and I wasn't disappointed, except for the spliced up mini-stories, which made it a bit hard to picture what the general public had watched on the regular show. Also, there was only one mention of Columbia and another of Adair County.
