  • Pitchin' and flippin' this weekend

    Well, what was originally forecast to be a miserable weather weekend turned out to be glorious.
    The fact that it was youth weekend for wild turkey, and they were gobbling their heads off, only made it better!
    While some hens have already laid eggs and are setting their nests, doesn't mean the hunting is on a downhill slide. We'll find plenty of gobblers still strutting for our adult season, which starts Saturday!

  • No blacks allowed?

    Desmond Spalding was planning a night out on the town with his wife and some of their friends Thursday, but he got a surprise when he arrived at Susie's Bottoms Up in Raywick.

    After he got out of his car, people started telling him to turn around because Susie's wasn't letting black people in that night. He assumed they were joking until he got to the door.

    "The bouncer said, sorry to tell you this, no black people can come in tonight," Desmond Spalding said.

  • Racism in Raywick

    There's no denying that the City of Raywick has a reputation.

    Historically, it's experienced some rowdy times.

    And, in the past, it wasn't always the most welcoming city toward African-Americans.

    In fact, there was a time when it would have been shocking to even see an African-American inside Raywick's city limits.

    But, times have changed. People have changed.

    Or, have they?

    That's one heavy medal for a soldier to carry on his chest.

    I've served over 37 years in the military and I can count on one hand the number of soldiers I've known that are Bronze Star award winners.

  • Lady Knights hold teams scoreless

    The Marion County Lady Knights varsity softball team played in two games during the Spring Break week, one at home against Casey County and one game on the road against LaRue County, winning both of those to take their overall record to 7-2.
