Marion County Country Ham Days festivities officially began Monday with the annual country ham contest. Jerry Boone of Boone's Butcher Shop in Bardstown is pictured inspecting the hams Monday. Olivia Jones, a student at Marion County High School, won the competition. As the winner, she will receive the market value of the ham. Also on Monday, The Lebanon Enterprise won the window-decorating contest. Eva Jo Nugent, and her husband, Greg, decorated the window to reflect the "Small Town Country" theme.
