  • Tree to memorialize victims of addiction

    At first glance, the small tree that recently popped up at Miller Park near the volleyball courts doesn’t seem out of the ordinary.

  • Pettigrew, Eagles top Falcons

    Just when the Monroe County Falcons thought they had all the answers, the Campbellsville Eagles changed the questions.

    A Campbellsville player lost the wrist band that contains the plays Eagles coach Dale Estes calls throughout the course of a game, but even that wasn’t enough for the Falcons to come out with a victory.

    Estes simply changed the way he called the plays in to his players, and the Eagles responded just the way the coach hoped as they pulled away for a 55-22 victory Friday night at Dave Fryrear Field.

  • Cards shut out Eagles, 3-0
