  • Honoring Tanner Strong

    On Tuesday, Feb 26, Marion County High School held a memorial for Jeffrey Tanner Strong. Strong, who died in an accident last week, was remembered by his church, family and peers from MCHS. After students read their memories about Strong, they walked a lap around the track and had a balloon release.

  • Jaguars evade Lady Knights

    The Marion County Lady Knights rehashed old history with the Mercy Academy Jaguars on Feb. 19. The Lady Knights lost 56-51 on their own turf and the game marks the end of their regular season.

    “[I’m] very proud of the way we played all year overall,” Epps said. “We had some highs and some lows, but overall it was a good year. We got better at some areas that we struggled with early, but still have a high ceiling in the future.”

  • Knights couldn’t tame Hawks

    The night began with cheers and screams in a packed Roby Dome, but ended with a stunned silence as the Knights fell to the visiting LaRue County Hawks on senior night. 

    After the tip, it was a bad beginning to the game for the Knights, who shot only 11 percent (three for 27) from the three-point line, as they let the Hawks open up a 10 point lead, 14-4. That would be the score going into the second period.

  • Racing keeps evolving in Marion County

    Over the last few years, Marion County has exploded with a slew of runs like Color in Motion 5k, the Warrior Dash, The Bourbon Chase, Back Tutu School 2.2-miler, and the Hills ‘n’ Horns Adventure Race. While they are different types of running events, they all have one thing in common — each race puts a new twist to an old activity.

    Soon, Marion County will be able to add another race to that list, the Turtleman Trek 5k.

  • Coyote hunters and farmers may be able to help one another

     This past week, while getting my coyote hunting stuff organized, I had an epiphany. OK, epiphany is a sudden realization or comprehension. Anyway, I had one!

    There are a lot of calves born right now. Calves are money on the hoof. Nobody likes losing their money.

    Coyotes like to eat newborn calves thus taking a farmer’s money. I, and some friends, like to shoot coyotes. Dead coyotes can’t eat your calves, or deer or quail, songbirds, dogs, cats, etc.
