  • Boyle bounces Lady Knights

     

    Boyle County was too much for the Marion County High School girls' soccer team to handle Tuesday of last week at Garrard County.

    The Lady Rebels knocked off the Lady Knights 8-0 in the second round of the district tournament.

    The Lady Knights opened the tournament with a 2-0 win over Taylor County on Monday of last week.

    Marion County finishes the season with a 4-13-4 record.

    Lady Knights Head Coach Hart Hagan could not be reached for comment Sunday night via phone or Monday morning via email.

  • Challenger speaks for 'working people'

    Ed Marksberry is a carpenter, a homebuilder and a real estate broker. This fall, he is seeking another job, U.S. Representative for Kentucky's Second District.

    On Friday, Oct. 29 and Saturday, Oct. 30, the music of James Taylor comes to Central Kentucky.

Gary Vidito is known from his contributions to Stephen Foster the Musical, Hoofprints on the Stairs, as a featured soloist with Mid-Kentucky Chorus, and his Music of John Denver concerts. 

    The concert features many of James Taylor's hit songs but also includes favorite songs from that same era.

  • Final district showdown

     

    The district landscape is starting to take shape but the final design won't be complete until this week.

    North Bullitt beat Bullitt East last week 18-6 to put the Chargers in a position for elimination.

    Marion County is now in a position where they are automatically in the playoffs but they can feasibly finish first, third or fourth.

    "We control our destiny," Head Coach Jeff Robbins said. "If we win against North Bullitt we're the No. 1 seed."

  • Submit your Thanksgiving traditions

    Watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on television, feasting on turkey and all the trimmings, fighting over the turkey wishbone and watching football sprawled out on the couch in a food coma... these are just a few of the common traditions celebrated on Thanksgiving Day.

    But, the Enterprise would like to know what unique traditions you celebrate during this special holiday. Do you have a special dish you make every year? Or, do you stray from the norm and celebrate Thanksgiving without a turkey?
