    It has been said many times that there's little to do in Campbellsville.

    Two weekends ago, there was something for everyone ... from shopping for bargains at the annual Tebbs Bend Flea Market to catching some fish at the Green River Lake Kids' Fishing Derby to going on a hayride at the Fall Heritage Festival at The Homeplace on Green River.

    And the best part about it all ... the majority of it was free.

    Our hats are off to those who organized last weekend's events, which attracted more than 1,000 people to the area.

  • Knights roll over Cards 67-0

    The Cardinals could not get their offense in sync Friday night, and the defense faced a multi-player running game like no other they had seen this season.

    Marion County (3-2) used 15 players running the football as they accumulated 395 rushing yards on 41 attempts and controlled the game completely.

    Senior Dylan Peterson led the way for the Knights, gaining 102 yards on eight carries, including touchdown runs of 23 and 40 yards in the second quarter.

  • Local teams have hands full in district preps at home

    As Campbellsville and Taylor County get ready to begin district play next week, the Eagles and Cardinals have extremely tough football clashes at home.

    CHS hosts Green County tonight (8:00) in the annual Cow Days Bowl on Dave Fryrear Field.

    The Dragons are coming off a one-point loss to LaRue County but still rank as one of the best teams in Class AA.

    Campbellsville has won 30 of the 46 games in the series. However, Green County has won the last three — 42-12 in 2006, 51-0 in 2007 and 40-14 last season.

  • Cards notch third win in 21 tries vs. Washington

    1993 (22-21), 2003 (35-13) and 2009 (28-27).

    Those are the three seasons Taylor County has managed a victory over Washington County in 21 tries, and all three of them came in Springfield.

    The one on Friday night started out like it would be an easy road romp as the Cardinals led 28-0 with 4:01 left in the first half.

    However, missed extra points enabled Taylor County to hold off the Commanders and post the 28-27 triumph on Friday night.

  • CHS squares record with Bethlehem victory

    The Campbellsville Eagles moved to .500 on the season with a solid defensive performance in triumphing 20-14 at Bethlehem on Friday night.

    “They are a good football team,” Eagle coach Jason Chappell offered. “Our defense played hard, but there are still things we didn’t do right. However, we gave great effort and I’ll take an ugly win over a pretty loss any day.”

  • Faith Column

    Alan Calhoun is a person with whom I can easily relate. We're both the kind of guys who can look back to recognize a great opportunity five minutes after it has knocked its final knock and gone next door.

    Calhoun lives in Bristol, Conn. with his wife in their home, which they hoped to redecorate a year or more ago. They looked all over for just the right accoutrements to add that touch of class and "Martha Stewart-esque" hominess that they were looking for.

  • Corn hole tournament is Saturday
