  • Three-fifths of CHS' 1959 starters were at 2010 region

    When one starts mentioning names, like this columnist did about the Boys’ Fifth Region Tournament championship game, you tend to leave someone out.

    Writing about the 1959 Campbellsville High undefeated regular-season squad, I mentioned that starting guard James Thompson and center Thomas R. McMahan were in attendance.

    I was told later that the other starting guard, Eddie Claycomb, was also in the stands.

    By the way, the starting forwards on that unit coached by Paul J. Coop were Danny Rose and Dale Wilkerson.

    The historic legislation has drawn differing reactions from politicians, health care providers and residents. While nearly everyone can agree that the moment is historic, it's a milestone that has drawn equal amounts of joy and anger.

  • Taking the Stage

    Those at Ransdell Chapel on Friday night heard a voice they might have never expected to hear in Campbellsville.

    Country music legend Vince Gill took the stage to help Campbellsville University raise money to install turf and lights on the football and baseball fields.

    And, according to Chuck Vaughn, Big Maroon Club director and major gifts officer at CU, Gill's concert raised $40,000 in ticket sales.
