  • Knights lose heartbreaker to Fairdale

    Mistakes piled up for the Knights on Friday, so much that it cost them a chance to advance to the second round of the playoffs.

    Carlos Litsey batted down a Fairdale pass to the end zone on fourth and 22 with 2:19 to go, seemingly ensuring a 17-14 victory for the Knights.

    The Knights just needed to run the clock against Fairdale who had previously used all of their time outs.

    A mishandled hand off led to a Buster Hazelwood fumble with 1:37 to go in the game. Fairdale would recover on the Marion County 36-yard line.

    Corbett was an exceptional kicker for Marion County for at least two seasons before he left for Lindsey Wilson.

    Against new president

    Our dispatches indicate that James A. Garfield has been elected President of the United States.

    This result we cannot help but think this a disgrace to our civilization, a public scandal, a national disaster. No man with such a record as Garfield’s as never before been a candidate for the presidency, and his triumph is well calculated to throw discredit on popular intelligence and to weaken faith in the discriminating justice of the American people.
