  • Frightening is fun

    I've been a horror film fan for as long as I can remember. And, as a result, the month of October remains my favorite time of year. In addition to cooler weather, the month also brings us Halloween, which means horror movies rule the airwaves.

    Unfortunately, recent years have found me dipping into my own collection for my fear season frights, as the classics that once dominated the TV screen have been replaced with newer films. In this case, newer isn't better.

  • Eagles gallop past Glasgow 40-8

    Campbellsville High School tallied four third-quarter touchdowns and pulled away from visiting Glasgow 40-8 on Friday night.

    The Eagles (4-6) led 13-0 at the intermission after a pair of Aaron Schwoebel touchdown passes - a 54-yarder to Thomas downs and a 31-yarder to Donovan Pittman.

    Glasgow had two first and goals inside the Eagle 10-yard line in the first half, but the Scotties, coached by former Taylor County head coach Bill Lindsey, could not reach pay dirt.

  • Cards conquer Caverna 62-13, earn No. 1 seed

    Taylor County High School closed regular-season play with an impressive 62-13 victory at Caverna.

    The offensive attack accumulated 509 yards with senior Chris Thomas leading all rushers with 121 yards on eight first-half carries, while junior quarterback Lance Turpin was 13-19 passing for 193 yards and five touchdowns and Leonard Macon had two TDs receiving, one rushing and one on a kick-off return.

    Defensively, the Cardinals forced three turnovers, all leading to scores.

    Head coach Rodney Turpin was complimentary of his team's effort and performance.

  • Someday the answer will come

    The other day, I came across a copy of one of the first columns I ever wrote. It was about being a parent. As I read my own words from 14 years ago, I found myself laughing at the naiveté.

    The simple worries of a parent with a baby.

    Well, that "baby" has just celebrated his 16th birthday, and his younger brother and sister are far from being babies as well.

    The headline on that column read: "How do you know if you've done right?"

    If nothing else, in the past 14 years I've learned the answer to that question: You don't.

  • Student uses Internet to teach others

    Brent Hatfield just wanted something to do this past summer. But instead of a new hobby or a family trip, the 17-year-old Campbellsville High senior chose to teach.

    Having completed two KET Distance Learning Latin courses within a year, Hatfield decided to share his knowledge on the Web.

    "I decided that during the summer, I wanted something to do that would be productive," Hatfield said.

  • Lodge proposals sought once again

    It's on again. For the fourth time, a request for proposals has been issued for the development of a lodge at Green River Lake. And, like the last RFP, the plans do not include a golf course.

    A request for proposals is a series of advertisements seeking bids on a project from developers.

    The RFP was posted at https://emars.ky.gov/online/vss/Advantage on Nov. 12. The deadline to submit proposals is 4 p.m. on Dec. 12. Those interested should click "Public Access," "Business Opportunities" and then "Search for Solicitations."

  • Protective orders can be misused

    Protective orders are a valuable tool that victims of domestic violence can use to protect themselves from their abusers.

    In granting Emergency Protective Orders and Domestic Violence Orders, the court may require the abuser to refrain from any contact with his or her victim and grant other remedies as necessary. This is a civil and not a criminal process.

    Protective orders are designed to protect someone against physical violence, stalking or the threat of physical violence. A protective order may be the only thing that keeps a victim safe from harm.

  • Adair County Christmas Bazaar is Nov. 22

    The Adair County Homemakers will have their annual Christmas bazaar at the Adair County Extension Office in Columbia on Saturday, Nov. 22.

    The bazaar, which will offer homemade jams, jellies, cinnamon buns, cakes, pies, candies, cookies and other baked goods for sale, will be from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

    Homemade crafts, holiday decorations, candles, throws, raffle baskets and door prizes will also be available, along with chili, soups and sandwiches.

  • Second season kicks off tomorrow

    Campbellsville and Taylor County will be facing first-time football opponents tomorrow night when the Eagles host Fairview and the Cardinals entertain Powell County in first-round play-off action.

    TCHS (7-3) has won its last three games and meets the Pirates from Stanton, who are 6-4, in a Class 3-A match-up on Clay Marcum Field at Thomas Porter Stadium.

    Powell County is coached by Mike Whitaker, who played at the University of Kentucky and Eastern Kentucky and also coached Tim Couch at Leslie County.
