  • UVA-Wise leads from start to finish

    Despite 151 yards from the school's all-time leading rusher Greg Fountain and a five-touchdown passing day from freshman Ross Deaton, Campbellsville University never led in a 61-41 Mid-South Conference road setback at Virginia-Wise on Saturday.

    Fountain, who scored a touchdown, carried the ball 25 of the 41 times for the Tigers while Deaton threw for 253 yards on 18 of 33 passing.

    Deaton connected twice with David Mason and former Campbellsville High School standout Bubba Lawless and once with Calvin Mann.

  • No one should have to live in fear

    The numbers aren't looking good.

    Last year, victims' advocate Heather Barnes investigated 215 domestic violence complaints. This year, she has already investigated 296 ... and that's only through the end of September.

    There were 273 days from January through September, which means that there has been more than one a day.

    Like we said, the numbers aren't looking good.

    And that's sad.

    October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a time when officials try their best to get the word out that it doesn't have to be this way.

  • Take time to give thanks

    Giving thanks is what the approaching Thanksgiving season is all about. But sometimes it's more difficult to do that than it should be.

    We all have much for which we should be thankful. But how often do we express our appreciation?

    If you're like me, then it's not often enough.

    You see, it's too easy to complain ... Who forgot to empty the dishwasher? Whose turn was it to feed the dogs? The laundry is piling up, the garbage needs taking out, the car needs vacuuming, the kids' bedrooms are a disaster ... I could go on and on.

  • Learning about fire prevention

    Ceondre Barnett can hardly see. He was sound asleep when the sound of a smoke alarm woke him up. Now his room is filled with smoke. He gets out of bed and drops to the floor, crawling toward his bedroom door. Seeing smoke pouring into his room from under his door, he grabs a towel he had left on his floor and stuffs it under the door. He then runs to a window, opens it and calls for help.

    While that scenario may have only been a part of Campbellsville Fire Department's annual fire prevention exercises, it certainly could have been real.
