  • Our Fourth is fabulous!

     

    Not being from Campbellsville, I don’t have the memories many of you have growing up here.

    You recall things from 10, 20, 30 or more years ago, and you remember the good old days.

    However, in some cases, the good old days may not have been as good as the days we are experiencing right now. Take the Fourth of July, for example.

  • Barbasol Championship begins this week at Keene Trace

     

    It is not the Ryder Cup.

    It is not the PGA Tour.

    Heck, it is not even the Senior PGA.

    Here’s hoping, though, Kentucky golf fans will show interest and support next week’s Barbasol Championship at Keene Trace.

    History shows they will as they flocked to Lexington when the city was a regular stop on the Senior PGA Tour, first at Griffin Gate Marriott and later Kearney Hills.

  • Parks qualifies for national tournament

     

    Cooper Parks has played a lot of exceptional golf in his young career, but he was about to shoot a personal best in the final round of the Kentucky PGA Junior Tour Trusted Choice Big ‘I’ qualifier at Quail Chase last Friday.

    However, he made bogey on the 16th hole and waylaid that effort.

    “I was trying not to think about what kind of score I could shoot and was wanting to stay in the present,” he said. “The 16th hole is a tight driving hole and I blocked my tee shot to the right and into the trees.”

  • All-Stars struggle in state play

     

    It was a short stay in the Cal Ripken East Kentucky State Tournament for two Campbellsville Youth Baseball All-Star teams over the weekend.

    Neither the 9-year-old squad nor the 12-year-old team made it past pool play at their respective events.

  • We are not "the media"

     

    The journalists at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland, amaze me. In the face of one of the darkest tragedies one can imagine – watching their coworkers mercilessly gunned down by a man filled with hatred toward the newspaper and its reporters – the Capital Gazette staff carried on and published a newspaper the following day. That’s exactly what happened last Thursday when five members of the newspaper’s staff were killed. And still, the next day, the Capital Gazette put out a paper.

  • Storm debris cleanup set for Saturday, Monday and Tuesday

    Campbellsville and Taylor County residents will be allowed to bring debris from Thursday's storm to the old Fruit of the Loom property Saturday, Monday and Tuesday to be disposed of.

  • YOUTH TRACK: Four TCHS athletes qualify for national meet

     

    Four Taylor County High School track athletes have qualified for the AAU Junior Olympic Games later this month.

    Emma Maynard, Ryan Maynard, Dalton Nunn and Natalie Reynolds all earned at least one top-six finishing spot during last weekend’s AAU Region 6 meet at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: All-Stars begin play in state tourneys this week

     

    Two Campbellsville Youth Baseball league All-Star teams began play in the Cal Ripken East Kentucky State Tournament this week.

    The 9-year-old team plays at Lexington’s Veterans Park, while the 12-year-old squad plays at Ward Correll Park in Somerset.
