  • October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

    October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It is sad that we must designate a month to highlight the problem of domestic violence, but this perverse, insidious malady is not going away.

    Each September, the National Network to End Domestic Violence conducts a 24-hour census across the entire United States. Shelters and other agencies who work with victims of violence are asked to count the number of people they helped during that day.

    Here are some of the statistics from September 2007 (2008 numbers are still being tabulated).

    National Summary

  • Central Kentucky Arts Series

    Internationally-known pianist Charles Rosen performed Monday evening in the Ransdell Chapel on the Campbellsville University campus as the second presentation of the 2008-2009 season of the Central Kentucky Arts Series.

    The performance was co-sponsored by the Kentucky Music Teachers Association.

    Next up on this year's CKAS season of performances is the Southern Illinois University Concert Choir, under the direction of Dr. Susan Davenport, which will perform on Monday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. at First United Methodist Church.

  • Be safe this Halloween

    Tomorrow evening, our community will be filled with ghosts, goblins, witches, princesses, all sorts of strange-looking animals - and just about any other character a child's imagination can invent.

    Halloween shouldn't ever be a night of mischief, danger or evil. And the fun it provides for both children and adults shouldn't be lost because, like so many things, a few people choose to abuse the occasion.

  • CU to host piano ensemble

    The All-State Piano Ensemble, sponsored by the Kentucky Music Teachers Association, will give its annual concert during the association's conference on Tuesday, Oct. 28 at 10:30 a.m. in the Student Activities Center on the campus of Campbellsville University.

  • LWC to host political events

    With the 2008 presidential election nearing, the Lindsey Wilson College community has several events planned to celebrate the republic's quadrennial national event.

    Thanks to Lindsey Wilson Government Documents Coordinator Kim Hamlett, the Katie Murrell Library has a display about presidential nominees Barack Obama and John McCain.

  • 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.
