  • Mischief at City Park

    Campbellsville Police are searching for vandals who've caused extensive damage to Miller Park, in particular the park's Par 3 golf course.

    "We've got some people playing golf who are tearing up the green and driving golf balls into the building," said Park Director Bill Brewer.

    Normal wear and tear is to be expected, Brewer said. But 210 divots in a day and golf ball sized holes in the metal maintenance building is far beyond the norm.

    Vandalism at the park has always been a small problem, Brewer said, but it has become worse in the last month or so.
