  • Monogram Art

    Campbellsville Middle School students in Angela Brasser's art classes created monogram designs using their initials. They carved their monograms onto "Soft Kut" printing blocks, then inked their block and printed their image onto paper by pressing the paper onto the block. This technique, called relief printing, was completed as a collaborative project with language arts classes as students made stationery with their monogram on the paper. They will use their monogrammed papers for written projects in language arts classes.

  • Police gear up for holiday crime

    Local police are gearing up for what is historically a time when thefts and burglaries are on the rise.

    Most thefts and burglaries occur between December and February, according to Campbellsville Police Chief Dennis Benningfield. And with a few protective measures, residents can do their part to prevent these types of crimes.

    "It is a different day and time," Benningfield said. "It used to be people could leave their home unsecured for days at a time. You can't do that anymore."
