    Campbellsville University's men could not avoid the Mid-South Conference cellar and lost 68-61 in overtime at St. Catharine College on Saturday.

    The Tigers used two Hristo Petkov free throws to tie the game in regulation, but were out-pointed 10-3 in the extra five-minute frame.

    Zach Allender led CU with 22 points and 12 rebounds while Petkov and Jordan Benock had 10 points apiece.

    CU visits West Virginia Tech tonight (8:00).

  • After the storm

    Several hundred Taylor County residents are still without power more than a week after a winter storm swept through the area, weighing down trees and power lines with a thick coat of ice.

    On Tuesday morning, power was restored to a number of Kentucky Utility customers in the High Pine area.

    Residents at Air View apartments had been without power for a full week, according to resident Brenda Metcalfe, who sought shelter with a friend.

    The temperature inside Metcalfe's apartment dropped to the 30s during the outage, she said. She lost all of her food.

  • A priceless, tasty faith

    The first thing I asked Sean Gebhard was, "Do people think you're crazy?"

    Sean runs the Upper Room Café in Mount Dora, a cute little town about 40 miles east of where I live in central Florida.

    I had heard about his "Holy Spirit-filled café" upstairs in the historic Renaissance Building, and the last time we were in Mount Dora I stopped in to see it for myself.

  • Food drive to benefit area needy during the current economic climate

    With increasing prices in food coupled with increased joblessness, home foreclosures and the ups and downs on Wall Street, local food banks are feeling the strain.

    Not only do they have to find a way to meet the needs of families in crisis with lower than usual donations, they are also dealing with increasing numbers of non-traditional food pantry clients that consist of more formerly independent senior citizens, more people who own houses and more people who used to call themselves "middle-class" - those who are not used to fretting over the price of milk.

  • It's hitting us where it hurts

    I'm not sure where it started, but I'll be glad to see it end.

    The downturn of the economy has everyone tightening their pocketbooks and pausing before we spend our hard-earned paychecks.

    I have discussed this very issue with several people, who all, like me, seem to have no idea just where the economy went sour. What exactly happened that has trickled down to making people fear they won't have a job much longer?

    Why have property sales slowed? What caused the stock market to plummet?
