  • 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.
