  • Kiwanis Club awards Thompson with $500 scholarship
  • She’s Country

    “She’s Country.”
    That was the theme for the 2014 Marion County Distinguished Young Woman program, and it describes this year’s winner, Bailey Spalding, to a tee.
    She’s grown up enjoying her “Pepaw’s” farm in Arbuckle, she studied agri-business during the Governor’s Scholars Program this summer and she’s taking several agriculture courses during her senior year at Marion County High School.
    Heck, she’s even preg-checked a cow.
    It doesn’t get any more country than that.

  • Tutu much fun!

    The first Back Tutu School 2.2-mile Family Fun Run/Walk attracted 275 participants. 

    Along the way, runners and walkers from six weeks to 81 years old shared smiles and laughs. 

    Even a few dogs got in on the act.

    The event raised $2,300 for the Marion County Girls on the Run program. The purpose of the program is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident.

    Girls on the Run will be in place at the four Marion County public elementary schools this fall.
