  • Lady Knights suffer third defeat

    The Marion County Lady Knights varsity basketball team traveled to Mercy Academy in Louisville Saturday night to play Withrow, Ohio, in the Raatz Fence Classic.  After struggling shooting the ball all game long, the Lady Knights were handed their third loss of the season. As a team the Lady Knights shot 12 of 59 (20.3 percent) from the field, and lost 42-36 in a low scoring affair.

  • Upward Bound

    The Upward basketball program is back in action in Marion County and is boasting record numbers of participants. This year there are 145 kids participating in the league, the most in the six year history of the program. The teams in the league are made up of kindergarten through second grade. There are six teams in the kindergarten division and six teams that are made up of first and second graders.
    The league was organized by Lebanon Christian Church and is under the direction this year by the church's youth director Mike Phillips.

  • Knights earn victory over Taylor County

    In a hard-fought, physical game, the Marion County Knights basketball team held off the visiting Taylor County Cardinals Friday night for a 59-51 victory. With the win, the Knights remain in contention for the top seed in the district. Marion County must win against the Cardinals when they meet in Campbellsville on Feb. 3 to take the No. 1 district seed outright.
    The Knights found themselves in a 14-9 hole after one quarter. Three Marion County players scored in the opening eight minutes, led by senior Carlos Litsey and sophomore Clay Lanham with four points each.

  • Lady Knights crush Lady Cardinals

    The Marion County Lady Knights varsity basketball team hosted the Taylor County Lady Cardinals at the Roby Dome Friday night. The Lady Knights took control of the game early, going on a 14-0 run to start the game, and cruised to a 72-25 win.
    Marion County's defensive pressure limited Taylor County to just five points in the opening quarter. Junior Makayla Epps led the charge for Marion County with 10 of her game-high 18 points in the opening frame.

  • Weather has been a bit confusing

    Had to check my calendar last week! Just wanted to make sure I hadn't pulled a Rip Van Winkle! Granted, I like to sleep late sometimes, but going to sleep in early January and waking up in the spring would've been quite a stretch!
    What conditions would cause such confusion? Well, thunderstorms and tornados are sort of expected in the spring, not January!

  • Jail all the dogs!

    With deepest apologies to Johnathan Swift, I have a modest proposal for the Marion County Animal Shelter and the Marion County Detention Center.
    Let's put some dogs in jail.
    Before you doubt my sincerity (which some of you might if you read my boss's column in last week's Enterprise accusing me - ME - of being sarcastic), hear me out.
    The Marion County Animal Shelter is overrun with dogs, and it's not something they can control.

  • Corrections and clarifications, Jan. 25

    A boys basketball photo on page B1 of last week's edition should have identified the player as junior Vincent Collins.

  • Redistricting, budget talks part of busy week

  • Don't torture yourself ... that's my job

    By Linda Ireland

    While my husband Bud and I were attempting to find something decent to watch on television the other night - and it's a desert out there, I tell ya - I started thinking that it has been some years since I compiled a list of my favorite movie quotes.
    Although there are more interesting things to write about - I didn't.
    It is sad to say that there are few quotes worth adding since the last time I updated my list. And it's sad that two of my favorite quotes include the word "taters."
    So here goes:
