  • Turkeys stay safe, away from hunter

    O.K. Score: Turkeys = several, me = zero. Oh, I saw birds, plenty of birds. But, they were either very young (small Jakes) or they hung up on me.
    Course the Jakes got to looking better the closer to season’s end it got. They also got wiser and the last week of the season even they started to hang up!

  • Mix it up

    Normally, I think of one topic to write about and have a normal title for my column.  However, this week, I didn’t want to just write about the Kentucky Derby, so I thought of two other ideas to go along with the Run for the Roses.
    First, since I already have the derby on my mind, I will begin there. This past Saturday was not the best of conditions for the event, as it rained pretty much the entire day. Since Karli and I couldn’t go outside and play, I tried to watch as much of the 139th Kentucky Derby coverage as possible.  

  • Lady Knights pick up nine-run win over Casey County

    The Marion County Lady Knights softball team won the only game it played last week, defeating Casey County on April 30. The Lady Knights were scheduled to play Bethlehem on April 29, but that game was cancelled due to wet field conditions.  
    With the win, Marion County’s record stands at 17-7.

  • Knights take two of four

    Last week, Marion County hosted John Hardin on April 29 and Washington County on May 1, before going on the road to play Garrard County Friday and Bryan Station Saturday.  The Knights (16-10) won two of the four contests.

    Bryan Station 14, Marion County 4

    Despite having fewer miscues than host Bryan Station, the Knights gave up 14 hits and five walks, and lost, 14-4, Saturday.
    “We had a beautiful day to play in Lexington but we were simply flat and lacked energy,” Marion County Coach Chad Spalding said.
