  • Mischief at City Park

    Campbellsville Police are searching for vandals who've caused extensive damage to Miller Park, in particular the park's Par 3 golf course.

    "We've got some people playing golf who are tearing up the green and driving golf balls into the building," said Park Director Bill Brewer.

    Normal wear and tear is to be expected, Brewer said. But 210 divots in a day and golf ball sized holes in the metal maintenance building is far beyond the norm.

    Vandalism at the park has always been a small problem, Brewer said, but it has become worse in the last month or so.

    Participants boarded a bus at Elmhurst Shopping Center and traveled Taylor County for about two hours.

    Washington said she was pleased with the crowd that attended, though the bus was only half full.

  • What's the word, teens?

    We're going to find out why so many teenagers are reading the Twilight saga.

    At Sunday's meeting of the CKNJ Bookmarks reading group, we discussed our last book choice, a set of two novellas, "Dinner With a Perfect Stranger" and "A Day With a Perfect Stranger." The books were an easy read, first-person accounts of two young skeptics who encounter Jesus, and his answers to their most challenging and most personal life questions.

    Some of us liked the books, and others didn't.
