  • Marching Knights reach state semifinals

    The Marion County Marching Knights have advanced to the state semifinals in Class AAAA.

    The band finished third out of 12 bands in the AAAA West regional competition held Oct. 31 at Bowling Green High School. The band scored an 81.44, earning them a distinguished rating.

    The Marching Knights will move on to the KMEA 2009 State Marching Band Competition semi-finals at 1:30 p.m. this Saturday, Nov. 7, at South Oldham High School. The Marching Knights drew the No. 10 spot for Saturday's competition.

  • Knights host Breckinridge to start playoffs

    The Marion County Knights begin their quest for a state championship on Friday night at John J. Boswell Field.

    The Knights (8-2) host Breckinridge County (3-7) on Friday. Breckinridge returns to the playoffs for the first time since 2000, when they went 11-2. After that season, Breckinridge struggled to win at all. They went a combined 10-67 from 2001 to 2008.

    Second year Head Coach Scott Mooney has helped swing the fortunes of Breckinridge, using a healthy dose of the option to break the playoff drought.

  • Hide some nutrition in their favorites

    I came up with a really good corn casserole recipe recently. My family really liked it, even though I had sneaked a can of hominy in it.

    It's similar to the Corn Casserole that's been around for umpteen years, just a little different -- great for a potluck. (And I never thought I'd get my girls to eat hominy!)

  • The turnip tells the tale of a real Hallow's Eve

    Pumpkins have been on sale for weeks, children have obsessed over their costumes and somewhere in the middle of it all is the story of All Hallow's Eve.

    Halloween, as it is known today, has its origins in something a bit more interesting then just pumpkin carving and candy collecting. In fact, the evening's festivities marked the beginning of winter for the ancient Celtic race of the Druids.

  • Knights sweep district

    For the first time since 2007, the Marion County High School football team has escaped district play unbeaten.

    The 2009 Knights completed the sweep Friday night at John J. Boswell Field against a North Bullitt team (2-7) that lost a significant amount of seniors from last season, including their Mr. Everything, Dalton Cissell.

    The Knights (7-2) came out flat and looked sluggish against North Bullitt, despite leading 19-0 at halftime.

  • It's good to have land

    If everything goes as planned, Marion County will be home to a new state forest some time next year.

    For more than two years, officials with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife and the state Division of Forestry have been working to acquire an estimated 1,700 acres of property.

    The Marion County Fiscal Court has agreed to be a partner in what has been estimated to be a $2.4 million project, and the county's contribution toward the project is just $100,000, which will mostly, if not entirely, come through in-kind contributions.
