  • April Fools fishin'

    Our Mid-Kentucky Bass Anglers April Fool's Day Tournament on Green River was interesting.
    At our 8 a.m. launch, the weather was a little cooler than it's been and it was overcast. As the day progressed it got just plain nasty looking.
    A dark wall cloud moved in bringing a steady wind and some small rollers. It actually got to the point that John and I found an open spot at the state dock, pulled in under a roofed slip, tied off and waited to see what was going to happen.

  • Lady Knights win 2, lose 2 on road

    Mercer County 5, Marion County 1

  • Girls take third in middle school meet

    In the middle school meet March 26 at Green County, the girls' team scored 88 points to finish third, while the boys' team was sixth with 38 points.
    "Our girls team did a great job overall," Head Coach Keith Brown said. "We left a few points on the track due to an injury to Chelsey Wright, and a couple of blunders on not checking in on time, but overall we were right where we need to be."  
    Brown said the boys team has room for improvement.

  • Graduation set for 11 a.m., Saturday, May 19

    The Marion County Board of Education unanimously approved the change during its meeting Tuesday evening at Lebanon Middle School.

    High School Principal Stacey Hall said he'd received multiple complaints about graduation being rescheduled from May 12 to May 19, but the change was necessary when the last day of school was moved to May 15.

  • Speaker encourages community to be prepared for changes

    The world is changing, so it probably shouldn't be a surprise that Kentucky and Marion County are changing, too.

    The community and local businesses need to be prepared to deal with those changes. That was the message Ron Crouch delivered in a presentation March 21 at the David R. Hourigan Center. Crouch is the director of research and statistics for the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet. Before accepting his current position, he was the director of the Kentucky State Data Center for 20 years.
