  • Quilt contest is for kids

    The Marion County Extension Homemakers Association in conjunction with the Kentucky Bluegrass Music kickoff are sponsoring a Creative Kentucky Quilt Block Contest - for kids.
    The quilt block must be created by the youth entering the contest and on flat paper; no 3D designs (use markers, crayons, paint, glue/tape colored papers, etc).
    Make the block no larger than 8.5-inch by 8.5-inch paper (it can be smaller, but must be a square); use the entire paper.

  • Knights win thriller against Nelson County

    The Marion County Knights varsity boys basketball team took on the Nelson County Cardinals at the Roby Dome Tuesday of last week and edged out a comeback win with a final score of 52-47.
    This was the Knights first game since their win in the Fort Harrod Classic on Dec. 23, a full 12 days ago.
    During the first half, the Knights struggled to put points on the board while the Cardinals seemed to be pulling away.

  • Four games scheduled

    Campbellsville is the host team when the Knights hit the road Friday night.  Junior varsity action will begin at 6 p.m. with varsity action to follow.  Previously this season, the Knights defeated Campbellsville when the Eagles visited Marion County on Dec. 17 with a 57-47 victory. This was the first defeat of the Eagles by the Knights since January of 2008 when Marion County edged out a one-point victory.  

  • Excessive celebration?


    First of all, I need to start my column this week with a word of thanks to three people.
    This past Friday morning my sister had a minor run in with Mother Nature. As she was driving to school, her car hit a patch of ice and slid into oncoming traffic.
    Luckily, the oncoming drivers, which included a school bus, were driving slowly enough to avoid a collision and no one was harmed.
    After sliding into the oncoming lane, she headed her car into the nearest parking lot, which happened to be at The Work Connection.
