  • A legacy struck by lightning

    H & W Sport Shop has been a staple in Campbellsville for 47 years. The local establishment started out as a small “mom and pop” retail store in downtown that sold Converse shoes and Dudley softballs. But as they have grown into a large business, they are now serving hundreds of teams, schools and individuals.

    On Thursday evening, the storefront was busy once again, but this time for all the wrong reasons.
