  • Knights prepare for third annual MC Invitational

    With another round of match play in the books, the Marion County High School golf team improved their match play record to 13-5.

    However, the focus this week is on tournament play as the Knights host the Heartland Athletic Conference (HAC) tournament Monday and the third annual Marion County Invitational Saturday at Rosewood Golf Course.

  • In Brief

    Fitness day moved to Oct. 9

  • Pain clinic has closed

    The doors are locked. The lights are off, and the furniture and signs have been removed from inside Lebanon Medical Solutions. From all appearances, the pain clinic in the Lebanon Trade Center appears to be closed. On Labor Day, Sept. 6, the Lebanon Police were contacted at 5 p.m. to investigate because the back door of Lebanon Medical Solutions office was open. "There was nothing inside and no signs of forced entry," Asst. Chief Wally Brady said.

  • Knights start a streak

    The Marion County High School boys' soccer team enters this week riding a two game winning streak, their first of the season. The Knights are also on a four game non-losing streak, tying the two games prior to their winning streak.

    The Knights traveled to Bowling Green Saturday to face Warren East. They left Hilltopper country with a 3-1 win.

    "We were out shooting, out playing, and out possessing them. I thought it could have been more than 3-1," Knights Head Coach Greg Conley said.

  • Marion County falls at HAC

    The Marion County boys' and girls' golf team couldn't seize home course advantage on Monday during the Heartland Athletic Conference tournament at Rosewood Golf Club.

    The boys' team finished runner-up behind Adair County, ending the Knights HAC tournament championship run after two years.

    Adair County finished with a team score of 319 while Marion County had a 333.

    Joseph Elder shot a 79 while Taylor Brady had an 81. Brian Loper finished with an 85 and Korey Hundley had an 88.

  • Various variances approved for Ham Days

    It could get loud Ham Days weekend.

  • Lady Knights' offense stalls

    The Marion County High School girls' soccer team continues to struggle to score, despite numerous close calls at the net.

    With sophomore Makayla Epps out for at least a week, it may not improve immediately.

    Epps went down with a knee injury Thursday against Taylor County and will remain out for a week, according to Lady Knights Head Coach Hart Hagan.

    The Lady Knights offense has picked up production though it hasn't resulted in goals. They have routinely out shot opponents by three or four shots to one.

  • Pure Bliss

    Yassmin Atieh traveled from Egypt to visit Kentucky and Marion County over the weekend. She was clearly impressed by what she saw. "Kentucky is really wonderful," Atieh said. "For me, it's heaven. It's where all the good horses are." Atieh was among the dozens of visitors (including members of the U.S. Equestrian Team, see related story) at the farm of Bob and Nancy Bliss Sunday afternoon.

  • Pain clinic raises questions

    A new pain management clinic is open for business in Lebanon, but no one involved seems to want to talk about it.

    Official documents filed on behalf of the business also appear to contain inaccurate information.

    Norma Thomas, one of the business owners, was hesitant to discuss the business last week. Dr. Najam Azmat, who confirmed that he worked at the clinic, declined to answer questions when contacted, and visitors who drove more than 80 miles to visit the pain clinic did not want to be interviewed.
