  • 'The Taming of the Shrew'

    Campbellsville University's Department of Theater invites the public to see the play "The Taming of the Shrew" by William Shakespeare on March 7 and 8 at 7 p.m. and March 9 at 2 p.m. in the University Theater. "The Taming of the Shrew" is a story of secret identities, sarcasm and romance involving two sisters, Bianca and Kate, and many men who want to marry Bianca. But there is one thing stopping them - her sister Kate must marry first, and Kate is mean to everyone and despised by all - a true shrew!

  • Choosing a candidate as easy as 1-2-3

    The presidential race is certainly becoming an interesting one. Like most of America, I've watched several debates between the candidates, checked out their Web sites and read all the news stories I could find, just trying to get a handle on which of the candidates would be best for the job.

    Little did I know the answer was so easy.

    At www.votechooser.com, it was all there for me, presented in easy-to-read terms. All I had to do was answer 10 questions and I would learn which candidate I should vote for in 2008.

    Hmmm.

    So I tried it. And boy was I surprised.

  • CU's ONE Chapter ranks Top 10 in ONE Campus Challenge

    After six months, tens of thousands of phone calls and letters to Congress and the presidential candidates, and after hundreds of events on campuses across the U.S. to raise awareness of extreme poverty and preventable disease, the Campbellsville University ONE Chapter has earned a spot in the Top Ten of the ONE Campus Challenge.

  • Magistrate resigns seat on Fiscal Court

    Marshall Caulk has resigned his position as Taylor County's 4th District Magistrate, citing health reasons.

    Taylor County Judge/Executive Eddie Rogers said Caulk recently sent a letter announcing his resignation to Gov. Steve Beshear.

    Rogers said Caulk has recently been unable to attend some of Taylor Fiscal Court's meetings because of illness.

    "He's been an excellent magistrate. We just hate to see him leave," Rogers said. "He's done an excellent job for his district."

  • Miss Frances

    "His role was as the gentle teacher, the logical, compassionate, caring and articulate teacher, who inspired you so that you wanted to please him more than life itself."

    While Carol Lawrence was speaking about West Side Story composer Leonard Bernstein when she made the statement above, we can't help but wonder if she'd ever met someone named "Miss Frances."

  • Will Kentucky voters be shut out?

    As I drove down Bardstown Road, a large yard sign caught my eye the other day - "Yes We Can" it touted in big red and blue letters. Beside it another sign - Barack Obama '08.

    It's nice to see folks finding a presidential candidate that they want to support and feeling good enough about it to shout it from their front yard (via signage) to the world.

    The bad thing is that by the time this poor person gets to vote in Kentucky's late May Primary, the decision for the Democratic and Republican party's contenders for the White House will likely already be decided.

  • News anchor says he got his start at CHS

    From watching noon newscasts with his grandmother and reading the weekend Courier-Journal, Daniel Kemp's career path was forged early.

    "Some things that stick out in my mind are watching the 12 p.m. news with my Grandma when she kept me during the summer when I was young, and my dad always having and reading the weekend Courier-Journal in the mornings.

    "I remember him telling me when I was younger that I should read the paper - it's always good to know what's going on everywhere else."
