    Thankful

    I am originally from Tennessee. I am so thankful to God for bringing me to Campbellsville, for bringing me home. I am so blessed to have an awesome church like Elkhorn Baptist Church and two awesome preachers like Brian Rafferty and Haywood Riner. God has truly blessed me with a church family that loves everybody no matter how down and out they are.

    "A single thankful thought towards heaven is the most perfect of all prayers."

    —Gotthold Ephraim Lessing

  • Gas ... How low will it go?

    The temperature was hovering around the freezing mark Thursday afternoon as Betty Witham stopped to fill up her vehicle after work. But at least the cold air is the only pain Witham and other motorists are feeling at the pump these days.

    After peaking with the near record high price of $3.98 in September, gas prices have plummeted steadily. On Thursday, the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded in Campbellsville was $1.69.

    "If they can get gas prices down this low, you'd think they could keep them low," Witham said. "I hope they do."

    One hour could save three lives.

    That's the message Roger Foster, associate professor of business administration at Campbellsville University and local site coordinator for the American Red Cross, is trying to get across in the days leading up to a CU blood drive on Dec. 1.

    The Bloodmobile will be at the Student Activities Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 1.

    CU hosts a blood drive every semester, Foster said. This drive marks the second this semester, he said, because there is a need.

  • Fruitcake anyone?

    Most people have been on the receiving end of the infamous fruitcake during the holidays. Oftentimes, the recipient is left wondering what, if anything, to do with the hard, dense dessert.

    But for the Hardesty family, fruitcake is a family tradition that the whole family loves making - and eating.

    Pat Hardesty said his mother, the late Ermon Hardesty, had made fruitcakes with the family for as long as he can remember.

  • Deadline is Monday for letters to Santa

    Hello kids! Ho! Ho! Ho!

    Are you getting excited? I certainly am, because Christmas is just around the corner.

    I've started making my list and checking it twice, but I need your help. I need a letter from each of you telling me what you'd like to have this Christmas.

    Reading letters from my little friends around the world is the best part of the holiday season. Your letters sure help the elves, too. It makes it much easier for them to load the sleigh with the right toys for the right girls and boys.

  • Golf course added to lodge RFP

    An amendment including a golf course has been added to the Green River Lake lodge project request for proposals.

    The amendment, which was added on Nov. 20, calls for an 18-hole, par 72 golf course. The course will include a driving range, putting green, a sand bunker practice area/chipping green and a pro shop.

    When originally posted on Nov. 12, the RFP did not include a golf course.
