  • Notebook: What happened to J.B. Holmes?

    What in the world happened to J.B. Holmes in Northern Ireland?

    The Campbellsville native started off The Open Championship so well, leading after posting a 5-under 66 in Thursday’s first round at Royal Portrush.

    He was the clubhouse leader at one point Friday afternoon, when he sat at 8-under for the tournament. Holmes posted a 2-under 69 Saturday and was still in good shape to contend for the championship as he entered the final round alone in third place.

    But things unraveled — and quickly — on Sunday.

  • Get Fit: Campbellsville/Taylor County Trail Town

    The Campbellsville/Taylor County Trail Town has existed for around five years and is a joint venture between the city and county government entities.

    In those five years, the group has steadily achieved one of its early goals: to develop and plan pedestrian pathways for health and fitness in the community.

    Scott Hess, a Trail Town board member and owner of The Spoke Easy, said the group has accomplished a lot in a short time but that its goals are always evolving.

  • CYB All-Star teams bow out of Ohio Valley Regional tournaments

    The All-Star baseball season came to an end for the Campbellsville Youth Baseball league teams last weekend.

    The 9-, 10- and 12-year-old squads played in the Ohio Valley Regionals, and all lost in the single-elimination portions of those events.

    In the 9-year-old tournament in Mount Sterling, Campbellsville finished 2-1 in pool play with a 6-0 win over South Bend (Indiana) and a 23-5 victory over Mount Sterling.

  • Cardinals hope success continues

    Change abounds for the Taylor County Cardinals.

    From a new coach to a new classification, 2019 will have a slightly different feel at Taylor County.

    Former Cardinal assistant Sam Marple has taken over after Jason Foley left following two seasons as head coach, and the Cardinals have switched from Class 4-A to 3-A and into a five-team district along with Adair County, Casey County, Glasgow and Hart County.

  • Eagles ready to take the 'next step'

    The Campbellsville Eagles are ready to take the next step and play for a state championship.

    They’ve come close the past two seasons, falling to Class 1-A stalwart Beechwood in the state semifinals both times. But Coach Dale Estes thinks his program is primed to take that leap and get to the state title game in 2019.

  • Get Fit: A Different Drummer Dance Academy

    Dance has always been a big part of Shannon Curry’s life and she wanted to share that passion with others.

    One way of doing that was to open her own dance studio, and that’s when the dream of A Different Drummer Dance Academy began to take shape.

    The dance studio has been open since November 2013 and at its current location – 105 South Court Street in downtown Campbellsville – for just over a year.

  • Get Fit: Ann's Dance

    For 30 years, Ann’s Dance has provided professional dance and gymnastics instruction for all ages in Campbellsville.

    The studio has been in operation in the city since 1989 with no plans of slowing down anytime soon.

    “We take great pride in providing a tradition of excellence in training and empowering all students,” said founder/owner Ann Fletcher.

    Ann’s Dance offers classes in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, modern, pointe, creative movement and gymnastics.

  • Tax settlement audit released

    State Auditor Mike Harmon today released the audit of the sheriff’s settlement - 2017 taxes for Taylor County Sheriff Allen Newton. State law requires the auditor to annually audit the accounts of each county sheriff. In compliance with this law, the auditor issues two sheriff’s reports each year: one reporting on the audit of the sheriff’s tax account, and the other reporting on the audit of the fee account used to operate the office.

  • Dream Job: Todd Polston named new boys’ golf coach at Taylor County

    Luke Coyle believes Scott Parks picked the right person to replace him as head coach of the defending state champion Taylor County boys’ golf team.

    Parks recently announced he was stepping down as head coach, mainly so he could more easily watch his twin sons – Cooper and Tanner – start their college careers at the University of Kentucky.

    Parks’ recommendation of Todd Polston was a hit with Cardinal players and Taylor County’s administration, which wholeheartedly supported the change.

  • All-Stars prep for Ohio Valley Regional

    It’s been a busy and hectic summer for players and coaches in the Campbellsville Youth Baseball league.
