  • Divine Equine

    Though school is out, it does not mean children can’t learn.
    The Horse Club, taught and led by Joseph Grant, Ruth Mackey and Scott Gardiner, allows children to learn about horses as well as increase their physical abilities as they learn how to bond with the equine species.
    So far, the children in attendance have worked on crafts, learned about saddles and other equipment, as well as how to interact with, ride and groom horses.

  • Little League round-up

    Marion County’s 9-10 softball all-stars finished their 2013 campaign as the 5th District runner-up.

    In that game, Jenny Mattingly picked up Marion County’s only hit, while Maggie Overstreet scored the team’s only run.

  • Hunter education class at Sportsman Lake Aug. 3

    Early deadline again. And again, not much to write about!
    Did find out something interesting you’ll want to remember.
    Last Friday I was stopped at Sportsman Lake and told there would be a hunter education class (orange card class) held there on Aug. 3.
    That’s right, apparently the class has gone from a three-day venue to a one day, eight-hour class.
