  • Snakes in the grass, politicians on our TVs

    Last week, we had a letter to the editor asking people not to kill rattlesnakes, while elsewhere in the paper we had two photos of people holding rattlesnakes they had killed.

    The irony was not lost on the newspaper staff, as I'm sure it wasn't lost on you.

    The issue reminded me of a story from my own past, when I was an intern at the Sweetwater Reporter in Sweetwater, Texas. Sweetwater is the home of the world's largest rattlesnake round-up (or so they claim). I wasn't working there at the time of that year's round-up, but I did see a few rattlesnakes that summer.

  • Nuisances

    No one likes nuisances, and most people don't like being a nuisance to others (with the possible exception of siblings).

    Some nuisances you can deal with on your own by either going somewhere else or by making the nuisance go elsewhere. But when the nuisance is a house, what can you do?

  • Gridiron Knights open with powerhouse

    The Marion County High School football team will open the season against one of the state's top teams.

    Last season they tangled with Bell County, the 2008 Class AAAA state champion. The Bobcats lost in the 4A semifinals last season to eventual champion Boyle County.

    This year the Knights play host to the John Hardin High School Bulldogs, last year's Class AAAAA runner-up and this year's number two-ranked team in that class.

    The team's lock horns on Saturday at John J. Boswell Field at 8 p.m. for the Heart of Kentucky Pigskin Classic.

  • Lebanon woman gets six years for burglary, drug charges

    Jamie N. Hunt, 33, of 50 St. Catherine Street in Lebanon was sentenced to six years in prison in Marion Circuit Court last week for second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, second-degree persistent felony offender and third-degree burglary.

    Hunt was ordered to pay $730 restitution ($700 to Hart Mart and $30 for the Kentucky State Police), a clerk's fee of $36.50 and $300 court costs. Hunt received credit for 97 days served.

  • Nuisance properties

    In December of 2009, the Lebanon City Council approved a nuisance property ordinance. The city adopted the International Property Maintenance Code as part of the ordinance. The sections of the code are used by the city's code enforcement officer, John Thompson, when identifying properties in violation of the city ordinance.

    The most frequently cited complaints involved sections 301.3 (vacant structures shall be maintained), 302 (which deals with exterior property areas), 304 (exterior structure) and 305 (interior structure) of the IPMC.

  • Lady Knights prepare for KIT

    The Marion County High School girls' golf team recorded something rare in high school golf last week. They tied with Adair County during a match and due to impending darkness, decided against a playoff.

    The Lady Knights played Adair to a 188-188 tie at Rosewood Golf Course on Tuesday of last week.

    Hayley Abell tied for the low round with a 43. Adair's Ashley Goodin also shot a 43.

    Amy Brown shot a 45 to beat out Adair County's Abby Royse who had a 47.

  • Knights fall to LaRue

    The Marion County High School volleyball team lost to LaRue County on Thursday to move their season record to one win and two losses.

    LaRue (5-0) beat the Knights in two sets (25-18, 25-21) at LaRue.

    "I was very disappointed with our lack of focus tonight," Head Coach David Hibbard said in his match report. "We knew LaRue had a strong corps of servers and that if we could handle their serves we would have a chance to win. Even knowing that up front, we did not come ready to play."
