  • Annual essay contest offers new dimension

    What is right with our world? What is wrong? And what can we do about it?

    These are the thoughts Greater Campbellsville United and the News-Journal are asking you to express in the annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. essay contest in honor of King's birthday celebration on Monday, Jan. 19.

    And if you win, not only will you get some great prizes, you'll also win the honor of helping GCU Director Wanda Washington plan an event or activity that reflects the beliefs and values King displayed so many years ago.

  • Nationwide slump hits home

    Well, it appears that the worst has begun to trickle down.

    Last week, the national news reported that our nation is now "officially" in a recession - and has been since last year. While that's not news to most of us, we really haven't felt it too sharply on a local basis.

    Yes, the high gas prices over the past year have affected us deeply. But we cut back and made adjustments in our budgets, and in past weeks the prices have finally fallen.

  • Lady Tigers make it eight in a row

    Sophomore Courtney Danis and freshman Jarobia Hill had 16 points apiece to lead Campbellsville University, and the 13th ranked Lady Tigers cruised to a 96-64 win at Midway College on Thursday.

    Campbellsville jumped out to a 5-0 lead before Midway could get untracked and the Lady Eagles took a 9-8 lead with about 15:00 to play in the first half.  From that point, Campbellsville used its size advantage and built a 22-point half-time lead en route to the 32-point win.

  • Adair downs TC 51-45

    Adair County won the fourth frame 13-6 to down previously-unbeaten Taylor County 51-45 on the Cardinals’ home court on Friday night.

    The Cardinals raced out to a 9-3 lead as Lloyd Stotts had an up-and-under follow, a right-wing three-pointer and a left baseline jumper.

    However, the Indians crept within two at 11-9 by using a 6-2 run of their own.

    Tyler Moss’ 30-foot three-pointer to end the first frame put Taylor County back up 18-13 and the Cardinal lead grew to nine (22-13) on two straight Michael Coulter lay-ups.

  • Lady Eagles lose lead, game to Spencer

    Campbellsville High School's Lady Eagles could not hold a 12-point third-quarter lead and fell 43-36 at home to Spencer County on Thursday night.

    The Lady Eagles (0-4) trailed 11-5 early in the second quarter before going on a 14-2 run as Danielle Morris tallied 10 points and Bronte Karr and Brittany Vaught a basket each.

    The advantage grew to 32-20 on a right-wing three-pointer and a lay-up by Morris, but CHS could manage only a basket and were 2-7 in free throws over the final 12 minutes.

  • TCHS girls fall to Adair 32-28.

    Coach Jenny Jessie’s Taylor County Lady Cardinals hit 13 of 14 first-half free throws to build a 20-12 cushion, but did not attempt a single second-half charity toss and dropped a 32-28 decision to visiting Adair County on Friday night.

    Adair County (2-2 overall and 1-1 in district play) used three D.J. Ballou baskets to cut the deficit to two (24-22) at the third-quarter stop and took the lead with baskets by McKenzie Martin and Chelsea Beard to start the final eight minutes.

  • Cardinals outlast home Eagles 68-60 for 4-0 start

    Taylor County did not expect a "walk in the park" and, despite jumping out to a 17-point advantage, had to battle cross-town rival Campbellsville to the end before posting a 68-60 triumph in Paul J. coop Gymnasium.

    "We knew it would be a tough game," said Cardinal coach Troy Young whose team improves to 3-0. "We didn't expect to come over here and walk over them.

    "We knew it would a physical game and it was."

    Lloyd Stotts and Michael Coulter nailed a pair of three-pointers, which ignited the Cardinals to their early 25-8 lead.
