  • From the ridiculous to the stupid

    It always seems as if something breaks down or needs replacing whenever large bills are due.

    If it's time to pay the homeowner's insurance premium, then one of our vehicles needs new tires. If it's time for property tax bills, then the hot water heater goes out. That's just the way life is.

    Somehow, though, while there might not always be money for the things we want, there always seems to be enough for the things we need.

    But for those people who have more money than they know what to do with, companies are now making more and more "must have" items.

  • Lady Tigers fall to Cumberland in MSC finals

    Campbellsville cut a 16-point deficit to four with about five minutes to go in the Mid-South Conference Women's Tournament title game in Frankfort on Sunday, but the Lady Tigers ran out of time, losing to Cumberlands 69-57.

    "Yeah, we cut it to four and had the ball," said Lady Tiger coach Ginger Colvin. "I felt good about it, but we just never could get over the hump."
