  • Renovations begin

    Work to renovate a portion of Downtown Campbellsville is ahead of schedule.

    Though the courthouse square project was set to start after the completion of the streetscape project, both projects started the week of Feb. 23.

    "Phillips Brothers started earlier than we anticipated," Donna Logsdon, downtown development coordinator, said. "They were just ready to go."

  • Help find a cure for cancer

    Whether it's through a parent, a spouse, a child, a grandparent, a friend, or even ourselves, cancer will reach out its deadly hand and touch us all. And that's why we should all be concerned with research into its cure.

    What may have killed us 50, 20 or even just a few years ago, is now treatable - thanks to research.

    And that's what gives us hope.

    As the second leading cause of the death in the U.S., cancer will affect all too many of us. We each have a risk - experts say half of all men and a third of all women will be diagnosed with some form of the disease.

  • Campbellsville makes top micropolitan list

    New and expanding industry helped Campbellsville make Site Selection magazine's 2008 Top Micropolitans list.

    The U.S. Census Bureau defines a micro area as a largely rural economy that includes a city of at least 10,000 people but less than 50,000 and covers at least one county.

    Of the 3,141 counties in the U.S., 694 are classified as micro areas and account for about 10 percent of America's population.

    Campbellsville was tied for 65th place on the list with two announcements - INFAC Corp. and Fluortubing.

  • Lindsey edges CU men 64-60 in OT

    Lindsey Wilson's Eric McPherson hit four free throws with less than 10 seconds to go and Lindsey Wilson ended Campbellsville University's hope of an upset with a 64-60 overtime win in the opening round of the Mid-South Conference Tournament in Frankfort on Friday.

    CU (10-19) tied the game for the sixth time when Jordan Benock hit the first of two free throws with a minute to go in regulation, but Lindsey out-scored the Tigers 10-6 in the extra five-minute period.

  • From the ridiculous to the stupid

    It always seems as if something breaks down or needs replacing whenever large bills are due.

    If it's time to pay the homeowner's insurance premium, then one of our vehicles needs new tires. If it's time for property tax bills, then the hot water heater goes out. That's just the way life is.

    Somehow, though, while there might not always be money for the things we want, there always seems to be enough for the things we need.

    But for those people who have more money than they know what to do with, companies are now making more and more "must have" items.

  • LWC to host Lincoln talk

    Lindsey Wilson will host "We Love Him Now: Lincoln the Unloved," a talk by Berry Craig, a professor at Western Kentucky Community and Technical College in Paducah.

    The talk - which is a Kentucky Humanities Council event - will be at 8 p.m. ET Tuesday, March 10 in the W.W. Slider Humanities Center Recital Hall. It is free and open to the public.

    This event, originally planned for Jan. 27, was rescheduled because of the ice storm.

  • St. Baldrick's tennis match

    Not since 1973 when Bobby Riggs coaxed Billie Jean King into a "Battle of the Sexes" has so much controversy been raised by a tennis match.

    But the Campellsville St. Baldrick's Committee has gone one better - Jeff Wright v. Sarge Pollock.

    Wright and Pollock, will play in a winner-take-all-braggin'-rights match at 3 p.m. Saturday, March 14 at the tennis courts at Miller Park.

    The match is a fundraiser for the second annual St. Baldrick's event.

  • Lady Tigers fall to Cumberland in MSC finals

    Campbellsville cut a 16-point deficit to four with about five minutes to go in the Mid-South Conference Women's Tournament title game in Frankfort on Sunday, but the Lady Tigers ran out of time, losing to Cumberlands 69-57.

    "Yeah, we cut it to four and had the ball," said Lady Tiger coach Ginger Colvin. "I felt good about it, but we just never could get over the hump."

    Cumberlands placed five players in double figures and hit nearly 80 percent of its free throws in turning back a Campbellsville bid for a title, its first chance since 2004.
