    This past weekend was my daughter's 10th birthday. That also means that it was her sixth sleepover.

    For some unknown reason when Madison turned 5, I agreed to her suggestion that she should be able to invite that many girls. And when she turned 6, that's how many friends she invited. When she turned 8, thank goodness, we put a cap on the invitation list.

  • CU can't survive cold second half at Georgetown

    Campbellsville University went cold down the second-half stretch and fell 64-51 at Georgetown College on Saturday.

    CU led 23-19 with four minutes to go in the first half and the visiting Tigers took the lead at 35-34 and 37-36 after intermission, but that’s when things started to unravel.

    “For 32 minutes we carried out our game plan pretty good,” CU coach Keith Adkins said, “but then their pressure got to us and we turned it over or took a rushed shot. The good thing is you won’t find very many teams that play defense like Georgetown.”
