  • So close

    In sports, there have been many times where a team was so close to victory that many had already proclaimed dishearteningly or joyfully, "The game is over!" After all, only one yard separated this team from the end zone or a team held a two-point lead with only a second or two left. The odds were stacked in their favor and they were prepared to take the lead. It was all going right and then, well, it all changed in the blink of an eye.

  • GIRLS SOCCER: Lady Knights bounce back after rough season opener

    The Marion County Lady Knights dropped their season opener against the Grayson County Lady Cougars 10-0.
    The Lady Cougars opened scoring at the 33:34 mark with a goal that sailed over goalkeeper Carrington McKay's head. She finished the game with five saves but gave up seven goals before Sophia Kroschke stepped in, recording three saves but giving up three more goals.

  • Woods and Waters: Discussing dove decoys and dove whistles

    Over the past couple of weeks we’ve talked about the upcoming dove season … traditionally Sept. 1.
    We’ve talked about hunting the birds and safety. So now we’ll talk about something that very few people I hunt with use: Decoys and dove whistles.
    To clarify, most dove hunters go out the first couple of hunts in September, then their season is over. And to be honest, decoys and dove whistles (calls) aren’t really necessary when hunting the young, dumb birds looking for something to eat!

  • Vaught’s Views: Kentucky football team is more united this season

    By Larry Vaught

    No one wanted to talk about any internal problems on the Kentucky football team last year. Never mind that the issues seemed obvious to almost everyone.
    During preseason camp this month, a few players have hinted that this year's team is far more united.
    Quarterback Drew Barker, who started the final two games last season, said there was "no doubt" the team was more united and had more purpose. He credits new offensive coordinator Eddie Gran for much of that on the offensive side.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Knights begin season with two losses, bounce back and win Somerset Spiketacular

    The Marion County Lady Knights began their 2016 campaign at the Roby Dome on Aug. 16 against the Woodford County Lady Yellow Jackets but weren’t able to come away with a win, losing 18-25, 25-20, 22-25.
    "We came out totally flat and played like we were afraid to play volleyball," Lady Knights Head Coach David Hibbard said.

  • Something stinks

    Given the chance, our dog, Winnie, will chase any critter. She usually goes after birds because they are the most plentiful, even though they are the hardest to catch. Rabbits taunt her every now and then, and she’s even gotten within inches of one or two. We don’t like it when she chases cats, but they are usually aware of her a solid 50 feet before Winnie is aware of them.

  • Workforce Development Board continues commitment to attracting veteran talent

    By Mo Miller
    Lincoln Trail Workforce Development Board

    There is no doubt that our region has a strong connection to and appreciation for our nation’s military. The men and women who serve our country are part of the fabric of our community due in large part to our proximity to Fort Knox. That’s why in 2012, when veterans faced above average unemployment, the Lincoln Trail Workforce Development Board set out to determine why and how we and our regional partners could work together with leaders at Fort Knox to change that.   

  • Kentucky has come a long way when it comes to special education

    Before the mid-1970s, special education in our country’s public schools was all but non-existent. Many students were either outright denied the opportunity to attend because of their disability, or they received inferior instruction if they were able to enroll.

  • See something, say something

    Too often we hear of terrorist attacks and deadly incidents that in many cases could have been prevented or somehow lessened. Strange and erratic behavior is sometimes the first clue to a potential danger posed to our community. That is why the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security developed the “Eye on Kentucky” program.
