  • Mooners must beware

    A small Illinois town is taking on droopy drawers. Congratulations to the Pine Lawn City Council.

    According to a Nov. 13 Associated Press story, City Council members there recently passed a law against saggy pants. Offenders could face fines of up to $100.

    Illinois business developers, the story said, have suggested that the law would improve the city's image.

  • Eagles heat up late

    Campbellsville High School's Eagles desperately fought back to force overtime and eventually prevailed 38-36 in two extra periods on Friday night at Williamsburg.

    "That first touchdown is what started it off," CHS coach Herb Wiseman reasoned. "Andrew (Anderson) came across the field and made a senior play (when the play wasn't meant for him)."

    After a scoreless first half (much different than the Eagles' 68-36 victory at Dave Fryrear Field during regular-season action), Williamsburg tallied late in the third quarter (4:56) and early in the fourth frame (8:20) to lead 14-0.

  • Deaton resigns as Tiger football boss

    After three seasons, Campbellsville University head football coach Jim Deaton has announced his resignation.

    "After much thought and prayer, I felt a change of leadership was needed to bring about the quickest turnaround of the Campbellsville University football program," Deaton said.

    "I am thankful for the opportunity to have coached at Campbellsville University and I appreciate the support shown by the faculty, staff, students, players and fans during the past three seasons.

  • Lady Tigers now 4-0 after road win at Union

    Campbellsville University's Lady Tigers made it 4-0 with a 96-82 road triumph at Union (Ky.) College on Thursday night in Barbourville.

    Coach Ginger Colvin's club held double-digit leads in both halves before the Lady Dogs fought back within striking distance.

    Jenna Hedges' long three-pointer just before intermission pushed Campbellsville's lead back to four (43-39) and the Lady Tigers put up a 53-point second half.

    Freshman Courtney Danis paced CU with 22 points while junior Juliana Brown and sophomore Kristi Ensminger added 14 apiece and senior Priscila Alves 12.

  • What's gone wrong with Tiger football

    The talk around the water fountain, at local sporting events and in the local eating establishments is what had gone wrong with Campbellsville University Fighting Tiger football?

    What has happened to a program that once competed for Mid-South Conference titles and had Courier-Journal sports columnist Rick Bozich cover a snowy home game with Georgetown?

    How does a program that chalked up eight seven-or-more victory campaigns, only win six games in its last three years?

    Here are some of the facts and speculation and hopefully a solution or two:

  • Named sources are always better

    When Judith Miller was arrested and jailed for not releasing to authorities the name of the person who outed then-undercover CIA agent Valerie Plame, the world of journalism was turned upside down.

    Realizing that it would be a long shot for me to receive Miller treatment in Central Kentucky because I wouldn't release a source to authorities didn't matter. News sources are sacred. But, then, we seldom use unnamed sources anyway.

    That didn't matter either.

    Recently, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed The Free Flow of Information Act.

  • TRH to host lung cancer program

    Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers. In 2007, lung cancer will account for about 15 percent of all cancer diagnoses and 29 percent of all cancer deaths.

    It is the second most diagnosed cancer in men and women (after prostate and breast, respectively), but it is the No. 1 cause of death from cancer each year in both men and women.

    Because lung cancer can take years to develop, it is mostly found in older people. The average age of a person receiving a lung cancer diagnosis is 69 years.

  • Violating probation gets man five years
