These kids need to get a part time job or participate in some type of sport instead of just wasting gas and polluting the air just driving around and around.
Who said they don't have a part time job. sport is a waste , but who said they don't play sports .

These people shouldn't expect the community to change just to suit their preferences. They chose to live in this town, chose to open a business here, which is commendable, and they chose to live there. And now they want the community to change just for them? I think its rather insulting. You wanted to live here, so live here and take us as we are.

One concern that has been expressed by some is that the downtown businesses are being hurt by the cruising. The only ones open that late are the restaurants, and they could cash in on the cruisers. Happy Days, which is theme based on the 50s and 60s when cruising was the craze everywhere, could sell a basic menu that could be delivered to the car. Example: shakes, burgers, fries, and drinks. Snappy Tomato could have pizza by the slice, and drinks. All sales would be on a cash basis. Now, talk about a marketing extravaganza!

I just believe that this could, and should, be a positive for our community. People will come from far and wide to cruise. Money will come to our community through gas sales and food purchases. Long live cruising!

cruicng will create some of the best memories you will ever have to look back on...anybody who has lived in this town has got a great "back in the day" cruicing tale that just warms your heart with memmories...but the cruising was not "organized" like this is...i dont think cruising will ever be like it once was....it just wouldnt feel right knowing you are cruising because the great genius mind of campbellsville are letting you cruise during certain times and have to stop at a certain time......i am bleassed with some of the best and most fondest memmorries of cruising thru the around 1983 thru 1992.....the memmorries will be there forever!! good luck to the ones trying to bring it back.....

1.Open new bussiness all along main street that are open until close to midnight.
2.Let people young and old come spend money.

Maybe one weekend a month have events like bands,car shows etc.
maybe somebody could even open a drive in some place along main street.

Don't know where people will get money to spend there are no jobs left in this town.

fruit of th loom looks like it got hit by an A-bomb
PK is closed.
IR down to 1 shift.
coxs...almost dead.
airguard...closed.
This town could use a new bunch of leaders.
next they will abandon the schools leave them to run down while they spend millions we don't have on new ones we don't need.
Maybe they could use the old ones for mexican resturants.

i remeber them good days, but have to agree that cruising will not be the same...hell i can picture all the kids cruising and they are all looking at their cell phones or trying to tex...cruising had its time and its passed(sad to say). that was our cell phone way of meeting people and hooking up!! and going to the lake and back to main street...endless fun thats been replaced by cell phones and internet....take them two things away from todays generation and they would be lost. if cruising come back, it should be for like a reunion cruise and everyone play old music from the late 70's and 80's hairband music and ditch all cell phones and electronic ways of communicating...blast the old pioneer stereos and relive our youth one more time the way we remeber it to have been....

Yep, I had the Pioneer Supertuner III cassette deck back in 1984, with the 6x9 pioneer speakers in the rear deck and equalizer under the dash.

I love remembering the old days, but kids today have it better, in a way. How many parties and other hookups did we miss because we didn't know where people were? Not everyone went to Main Street, or if they did, they didn't stay all night. On the other hand, you can't do ANYTHING today without the threat that the photos will be on Facebook before you get home. In that respect, I'm glad the technology didn't exist when I was running around. LOL

I remember my brother and his friends talking about how they use to all cruise mainstreet and just hang out and have a good time. I remember i couldnt wait to cruise main when i was younger. My freshman year of high school up until my junior year we cruised main every weekend with no problem. Campbellsville is so dead at night time on the weekends. We try to hang out at the park but if to many people get gathered together down there the police come through and tell us all to leave its past the park hours. Like really? What city park in any other city do you see have park hours? Let us be young and free. We are not bothering anyone just having fun as we know how to just cutting up and having a good time. Simple minded people have to ruin it for everyone. Im young but i know alot of things. Thats why you see more young peoople getting in trouble now days because they are bored and when we try to have fun certain people who have no business worrying about what we are doing just ruin it. Im a junior in college now always have lived in cville and i believe that if i want to cruise main or chill at the park when i want on the weekends then i should be able to they are public places thats the whole point of why they are called public places. But no i guess you want to see our youth drinking and smoking there lives away at a early age. I know kids younger than me that cant function without having alcohol or some type of drug. The shits crazy. Just let us be us. Let us have that freedom at least hell. You dont see McDonalds kicking us out of there parking lot when a group of 10-25 people are chilling there do you? No because they know we are going to get food or drinks from there. So i dont know why the business owners on main would be so worried about cruising we aint hurting nothing but our own pockets by getting gas to put in our cars to do something that entertains us and has been entertaining the youth and adults for plenty of years now.
