  • Representative Roundtable

    Jobs, the economy, and healthcare were just a few of the topics talked about at a roundtable discussion with U.S. Rep. Brett Guthrie during his visit to Lebanon Tuesday of last week. But, technical education and its need for additional funding dominated the discussion.

    Marion County Economic Development Director Tom Lund voiced his frustrations to Guthrie about the state's priorities and the lack of support technical education receives.

  • Fix Mr. Food's wing sauces on game day

    Remember Mr. Food? He used to have recipes on a local TV station during the noon news. I wrote down two of his recipes for sauces for chicken wings years ago, and they're quite good (and easy.)

    The wings in both recipes are baked, not fried, and can be stored in the refrigerator after baking, then warmed and tossed with the sauce at party time.

    Try one of these on your football fans next game day!

    Buffalo-style Chicken Wings

    10 lbs. chicken wings

    2 sticks real butter

    1 1/2 c. Tabasco or Louisiana hot sauce

  • Church music

    Sr. Alice Eugene Tighe uses a walker, but she was among the first to rise to give a standing ovation to the two musicians who performed at the Loretto Motherhouse Thursday evening.

    "They're both virtuosos simultaneously," she said.

    And Tighe, 96, should know. She has a PhD. in music from the University of Michigan, and she still teaches piano. She has lived at the Motherhouse for around seven months, and she said she has been impressed by all of the musicians who have performed during that time.

  • Former MAC employee charged with disorderly conduct

    Elizabeth Ann Newton, 26, of 807 West Finley Ridge Road in Campbellsville received 24 months of probation for disorderly conduct stemming from sexual contact with an inmate.

    Newton was originally charged with second-degree sexual abuse, but the charge was amended to disorderly conduct. Newton was also ordered to stay away from Marion Adjustment Center.

  • Knights name captains

    After six long weeks, the Marion County High School boys' soccer team named captains for the team.

    "It's been a long six weeks, trying to figure that out," Knights Head Coach Greg Conley said. "It's the longest I've waited in my career I think. We've been waiting for leadership to emerge."

    Conley gave the nod to seniors Dylan Browning and Ethan Drury. Juniors Scott Hunt and John Southall were also given the captain role by Conley.

    The coach said Hunt made a speech in the last two weeks that has really helped the team come together.

  • Knights shock Collins

    Though some games have been bigger in scale and more meaningful, the Marion County High School's win over Collins on Friday might have been the biggest win in the last seven years.

    Marion County kept the Collins off the field long enough to grab a 30-27 win, knocking off the team that some have picked to win the Class AAAA state title.

    "I really truly think that's one of the biggest wins in our program," Knights Head Coach Jeff Robbins said. "We've played in bigger games but this was a huge, huge game."

  • The man we will execute

    Gregory Wilson is scheduled to be executed on Sept. 16, by signed "command" of Kentucky's governor. As Gregory is now a face on front pages and a topic of public discussion, I ask to put a face and character to the person who will be killed in the name of Kentucky's citizens. I bear witness that he is not the same man who committed the crime.

  • Knights win the MCI

    The Marion County High School volleyball team had their best week of the season so far, reeling off ten straight wins to gain a stranglehold on district play and win the Marion County Invitational.

     

    The Knights cruised through their own tournament Saturday at the Roby Dome, losing only two sets out of 12.

     

    The Knights cruised through Bardstown (25-14, 25-15), John Hardin (25-18, 26-24), Allen-County Scottsville (25-9, 25-13), Silver Grove (25-16, 25-13) and Bullitt Central (24-26, 25-14, 25-7).

     

  • Gardner drives away the competition

    Ten years is a long time.

    From 2000 to 2010, the Lebanon Country Club (LCC) has gone over the 50-year mark for having the Lebanon Invitational Tournament (LIT).

    In that same time period, a new 18-hole golf course opened up to the public.

    In those 10 years, LIT champions have come and gone but only one thing has remained the same: Dave Gardner is still the champion of the longest drive.

    Gardner won, again, Friday at LCC. He beat LCC club champion T.J. Raikes by a few yards, he said.

  • Manning claims LIT crown

    Dr. Curt Manning, the No. 2 seed in this year's championship flight of the Lebanon Invitational Tournament, defeated last year's champion Pat "Woody" Clements on the 18th hole Monday afternoon for the 52nd LIT crown.

    Manning is a first time winner of the LIT championship flight. According to Jerry Reynolds, tournament director, Manning has finished second several times.

    Manning defeated Springfield's Mikey Yates in the morning final four match to advance to the finals. Clements, from Louisville, defeated Josh Matney in the final four.
