  • Airport, Community Center to get facelifts

  • Pilgrimage to the Holy Land

    It was too overwhelming. This was the place in which Jesus rose from the dead. And one day last month, Gabe Gabehart found himself standing in the very same Garden Tomb.

    "There was a beautiful garden there and several of us fell to our knees when we stepped into that empty tomb," Gabehart wrote in an e-mail. "My eyes are tearing just writing this."

    That was just one of many life-changing experiences for 29 "pilgrims," most of them from Campbellsville, who traveled to Israel from March 16 to 25 to witness the Holy Land in person.

  • FOL demolition begins

    A boom echoes across the morning sky. A large chunk of Campbellsville history falls to the ground.

    It has stood for decades, but Monday the walls of Fruit of the Loom began tumbling down. Work is now under way to clear structures once home to "the factory."

    The goal, said Dennis Brinley, one of the three partners of Heartbeat Development, is to market the 27-acre-lot as retail space. Brinley says he envisions restaurants and retail stores, such as Walgreens or Target.
