  • Running down the road

    For Campbellsville native Barry Bertram, what started as a way to stay healthy quickly turned into a way of life. Bertram has run more than 40,000 miles since 1977.
    That is far enough to circle the earth and then run across the United States five times.
    He knows how far he has run because, for the last 33 years, he has recorded how many miles he ran each day.

    Bethel returns favor, beats Lady Tigers in last minute, 66-65
    Ginger Colvin is a former elementary school teacher, so she knows a little something about quizzes when gauging student progress. She also knows you can’t use trick questions.
    Her women’s basketball team had received solid marks following the Lady Tigers’ first two games, winning both by an average margin of 60 points. But Saturday her squad stepped up in class in McKenzie, Tenn., and CU got its first real test against No. 19 Bethel University.
    Bethel 66, Campbellsville 65.

    Despite playing with an injured shoulder from Saturday’s round, Campbellsville’s John “J.B.” Holmes came down to Sunday’s last hole, No. 9, with a chance to finish in the top 30 in money on the 2010 PGA TOUR list.
    However, Holmes, who basically played “one-armed” the last two rounds, finished in a tie with Heath Slocum and placed 31st after the season-ending tournament.

  • Tool maker turns editor, lure...

    From tool and die maker, to fishing guide, to boat upholstery, to lure maker, to computer guru, to fishing magazine editor. That’s Chris Erwin.
    “I came from bass fishing. I started club fishing in 1971 and I didn’t think I’d ever get tired of bass fishing, but if you catch a fish 40 inches long in 6 inches of water and that doesn’t thrill you, then you’re dead,” explained Erwin, as we enjoyed a beautiful fall morning fishing Cave Run Lake.
