  • This summer at "'Laugh In' Out Loud" theatre arts camps on the Campbellsville University campus, children will be working on comedy skits, joke wall appearances and improvisations that will allow them to gain experience working on stage in a group and as individuals.

    The camps are hosted by Campbellsville University and Birdsong Family Productions.

    This format will allow all campers to participate in a performance at 7 p.m. on Friday, July 18 at the University theatre. The show will be open to the community.

  • We're doing the happy dance at my house these days. It started when, one day last week, I went to turn on the TV in the living room and it popped, which is never a good sound coming from a major appliance or electronic device.

    My husband had been pining for a flat-screen, high-definition TV for months and I've balked at the idea. Our TV was good enough.

    But that morning "good enough" became "dead." Later that day Barry called me at work and said, "Before you start screaming, hear me out."
