Today's News

  • They are only kids once

    Today is Halloween. My 79-year-old father and my 76-year-old mother drove more than 600 miles from Missouri to take my children trick-or-treating. This is something they have done for many years, and each year we worry this will be the last year they will be able to make the trip.

    I rushed home today after work to help my children get into their costumes, only to find out that they had homework.

    Their summers have been shortened to almost nothing. Now you're taking Halloween away from them, too?

  • Early Days

    TEN YEARS AGO

    Nov. 6, 1997

    Mr. and Mrs. Chester Lawson will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on Sunday, Nov. 16.

    Air Force Airman Daniel Ramsey has graduated from basic training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.

    Dominique Coulter, 14-year-old son of Paul and Sheila Nuckols, is attending a six-week short course session at the Kentucky School for the Blind.

    Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Campbellsville will have its annual Thanksgiving social on Saturday, Nov. 15 from 4 to 7 p.m. in the church hall.

  • Slow start dooms CU in regular-season debut

    Campbellsville University never overcame a slow start and dropped its regular-season opener 86-84 on Saturday to Union University in Jackson, Tenn.

    After an early deadlock at 2-2, the Bulldogs used a 22-5 run to build a 24-7 cushion.

    The Tigers cut the deficit to 10 before Union reeled off another 12-2 run to post its largest lead of 20 points (47-27) with 4:12 remaining in the first half.

    Campbellsville cut the Union lead to seven (49-42) at the half and kept second-half momentum but could never take the lead due mainly to dismal 8-19 shooting from the charity stripe.

  • Residential nominations for National Register

    Plans are being made at this time to pursue a Campbellsville Residential Historic District nomination for historic properties in the Lebanon Avenue, Duffy Street, Jackson Street, High Street, North Central Avenue and Maple Street residential areas.

    The listing in the National Register provides recognition of the importance of a historic property, but it does not place any obligation or legal restriction on the use of the property by the owner.

  • Holmes' two-year PGA earnings near $2.4 million

    John "J.B." Holmes' $119,600 payday on Sunday at the Children's Miracle Network Classic presented by Wal-Mart pushed him to nearly $2.4 million after two seasons on the PGA Tour.

    Holmes, who did not have to finish in the top 125 to regain his card for another season, did do that at 118 with his tie-for-ninth showing at the Magnolia Golf Course, which is the longest of the Disney courses, at Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

    Holmes finished his second season on the Tour with $874,216, which gives him $2,361,819 for his two-year tenure as a professional.
