  • Knights win Heartland

    After a long, tiring week the Knights finished sluggish... 81 holes of golf over the course of a week is likely to do that to a team.

    Despite a break neck schedule, the Marion County High School boys golf team took care of business by winning their second consecutive Heartland Conference tournament and finishing 18-2 in match play.

    The team's ninth place finish in the Marion County Invitational and higher scores later in the week prompted Head Coach Freddie Leathers to cancel Monday's match at Maywood to rest up and spend the week working on individual weaknesses.

  • Ham Days rain plan in effect

     

    Mother Nature must not realize that one of the biggest festivals in central Kentucky is taking place this weekend. Or, she doesn't particularly care for ham.

    Nevertheless, the rain that continues to fall in Lebanon and Marion County has already caused some changes in Ham Days events.

    Friday night's Miller Lite 100.9 MIKE FM Battle Of The Bands, which was originally scheduled to be held at Johnston Field behind Centre Square, will instead be taking place inside the Centre Square Convention Center.

  • I'm a ham, oh yes I am

    "Ham Daze." "Hamtastic." "Hambrella Days." And, my all-time favorite... "Burp!" Those are some of the fun, silly and ridiculous headlines and phrases that have been used in The Lebanon Enterprise over the years to describe this community's most beloved festival - Marion County Country Ham Days. "Burp!" has my father written all over it. It was the headline in the edition following Ham Days in 1981.

  • Ham Days comes to a close

    It may have been wetter than they would have like, but the runners in the 2009 Pokey Pig helped Marion County Country Ham Days get off to a running start. 

    Scores of runners and their supporters endured the wet conditions to complete the 3.1-mile course.

    The overall winners were Matthew Mattingly and Sara Obata. Both are student-athletes at Marion County High School.

    Mattingly was the fastest finisher overall, and Obata was the fastest female finisher. Mattingly runs cross country, and Obata is a member of the Lady Knights girls soccer team.
