  • Antsy for Christmas

    Is there nothing more agonizing for a child than waiting for Christmas to arrive? I remember when my sister, two brothers and I would alternate between agony and ecstasy every December as we anticipated the arrival of Christmas.

    With each day's waiting more torturous than the next, we would put on our David Seville and the Chipmunks album on the hi-fi and commiserate with them as they pleaded, "Please, Christmas, don't be late!"

  • CU tabs Thomas to guide Tiger grid fortunes

    Campbellsville University introduced Perry Thomas as its new head football coach in a press conference Friday morning.

    "The winning starts today," said Thomas in accepting his first collegiate head football coaching position.

  • Thomas' hiring makes you feel like life is good

    Just when you feel like life's not fair, something happens to make you realize it might not be that bad after all.

    Jim Deaton is a good man. But, that didn't help the Campbellsville University football Tigers who finished the 2007 season with a 0-10 worksheet.

    Just like winning became a habit during some of the Ron Finley era, finding ways to lose have been prevalent the last several games at CU.

    Deaton resigned last month, feeling and hoping someone else could take control and bring the Tiger football program out of its doldrums.
