  • Lady Knights go to work

    The Marion County High School girls basketball team locks horns with last year's 12th Region champion Casey County on Saturday during the Bankers Hardwood Classic in Russell County.

    Before that though, they tangled with Adair County on Tuesday to open district play. Results were unknown at press time. Friday they travel to Washington County High School (0-1) to face their border rival in a hostile road environment.

  • In Brief

    One new candidate files for fiscal court

    Phillip Dewayne Shively of Finley has filed to run for the District D magistrate seat.

    Incumbent Larry Caldwell of Lebanon previously filed to seek re-election.

    Tennessee murder trial for Lebanon man near conclusion

    The evidence has been presented and closing arguments have been presented in the trial of George Thomas of Lebanon, according to WBIR in Knoxville. It's now up to the jury to make its decision.

  • Don't be a scrooge

    Bah humbug!

    We said the same thing two years ago when we wrote an editorial encouraging local businesses and industries to become involved in the Christmas in the Park display at Graham Memorial Park. But, apparently, we didn't say it loud enough.

    Or, maybe we didn't say it with just the right amount of Scrooge-like gruffness in our voices.

    Nevertheless, the same problem that existed two years ago exists today - there's not enough local support for a worthwhile local holiday attraction.

    And why not?

  • Make some easy, delicious treats

    I tried three new quick and easy sweet treats recently that I thought I'd pass along.

    The Pretzel Cookies are great for the kids to help with and the Cake Mix cookies are super easy and fast.

    If you don't want to bake them all up at once, freeze the extra cookie dough and bake when needed.

    I've tried lots of hot fudge sauce recipes, but this is the one I use most often. I got it from a l979 Hershey's cocoa cookbook and it's always good.

  • Nothing to waste

    An old maxim says, "Waste not, want not."

    The city of Lebanon is hoping its waste is something that local farmers will want.

    And county officials are supporting the effort.

    "It's ultimate in recycling," said Keith Brock, the Marion County solid waste and environmental coordinator.

    Each month, the Lebanon wastewater treatment plant produces around 200 tons of biosolids, the byproduct of the treatment process, and city officials would like to give it away for free to Marion County farmers.

  • H1N1 death reported

    Twelve cases of H1N1 have been confirmed in Marion County, and now one death has been attributed to this strain of the influenza virus.

    The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family services included the Marion County death on its updated chart, which is available at kyhealthalerts.gov.

    The Marion Countian who died was a man in his 40s who had underlying health conditions, according to Gwenda Bond, an assistant communications director with the cabinet.

    The family of the man has requested that his name not be released.

  • Your (almost) helpful 2009 holiday gift guide

    Despite my best efforts, I have not yet been able to convince my family to forgo the annual Christmas gift giving.

    I still hold out hope that some day we will enjoy the holiday for the time we spend together without the added rigmarole of picking out presents for one another. (I understand that some people still enjoy this part of the season, however.)

    With that in mind, I'm here to help, almost.

  • Raising the bar

    The Marion County Knights football players were understandably down after Friday night's loss to Lone Oak, but we hope with time and distance they will appreciate what they accomplished this year.

    For just the second time in school history, Marion County reached the state football semifinals.

    This year's Knights went 11-3, posting the second-best record in school history. Only the 1987 squad, which finished 12-2 and also reached the semifinals, had a higher winning percentage.
