  • Time to sign up for Part D

    From now until Dec. 31, Medicare Part D is offering an "open-enrollment" period, meaning that seniors can change their prescription drug coverage to pick a new plan that better meets their needs.

    Seniors should jump at this once-a-year opportunity. Instead of being forced into a one-size-fits-all plan run by the government, Part D participants can choose among a variety of private insurance plans, custom tailoring their coverage to their particular drug needs.

  • Lady Tigers convert down stretch for 88-84 home win

    Courtney Danis hit four free throws in the last 15 seconds to seal an 88-84 Campbellsville University Lady Tiger (1-1) victory over Robert Morris (0-1) on Friday night in the Powell Athletic Center.

    Danis led all scorers with 21 points but got good support as three other Lady Tigers scored in double figures.

    The free throws weren't Danis' only heroics as she drained a three-pointer at the intermission buzzer that gave Campbellsville a 44-41 lead.

  • Let's philosophize

    I recently purchased my latest car; a loaded Saab 95, complete with 7-speaker stereo system, heated and cooled seats, multi-function sunroof and a plethora of other amenities, some of which I have yet to figure out how to operate. It is a luxury car that gets 32 miles per gallon on the highway, and it could easily be the most comfortable car I've ever owned.

  • Tigers triumph in roundball opener

    If there were any questions surrounding the comeback of Zach Allender after missing last season following knee surgery, the 6-7 senior started answering them on Saturday by posting a double-double as Campbellsville University bested Mid-Continent 78-74 at the Lindsey Wilson College Classic in Columbia.

    Allender had a game-high 22 points and hauled down 10 rebounds to lead the Tigers to the season-opening win in a game that stayed close throughout.

    Campbellsville Fire Chief Allen Johnson said the grant will be used to pay for a custom-built aerial platform truck and equipment.

  • Sleep apnea support group to meet

    Sleep apnea is common, as common as adult diabetes, and affects more than 12 million Americans, according to the National Institutes of Health.

    Risk factors include being male, overweight and older than 40, but sleep apnea can strike anyone at any age, even children. Yet still because of the lack of awareness by the public and healthcare professionals, the vast majority remain undiagnosed and therefore untreated, despite the fact that this serious disorder can have significant consequences.

  • Red kettle drive begins

    It seems one can't have Christmas without bells. "Jingle Bells" is a favorite of Christmas carolers, while children lay awake at night listening for the sound of Santa's sleigh bells.

    But for the past century, another type of bell has heralded the start of the Christmas - Salvation Army bells.

    "It's our only fundraiser of the year," said Kathleen Fletcher, welfare secretary for the local program.

  • Late comeback falls short for third straight week

    For the third straight week, Perry Thomas' Campbellsville University Tiger football team fought hard to come from behind only to see a game slip away by a touchdown as they lost 31-24 at Union College in Barbourville.

    The Tigers trailed 28-10 at the end of the third quarter, and Union tacked on a field goal at the beginning of the fourth period to lead 31-10 before, in almost typical fashion, the Tigers began to roar back.
