  • Letter: Financial, political gaps remain on Medicaid

    One week into most narrowly-called special sessions, the General Assembly has completed its work, sent the final legislation to the governor for his signature, and headed home - or at least has a pretty good idea of how long that process might take. Then again, we usually try to have an agreement in place before the special session is called, hoping to save our own time and taxpayers' money. That hasn't been the case for this special session.

  • How to help

    Watching the television news, reading the newspapers and surfing the Internet, images of the disaster in Japan are everywhere.

  • Knights swing into action

    After wrapping up last season with a record of 15-14, Head Coach Chad Spalding looks for this season to be an improvement.

    Head Coach Trent Milby hopes that this year’s squad will win the district crown for the second year in a row, and take their chances in the 5th region tournament once again.

  • Young boys plan to compete

    With a new coach at the helm, the Marion County Knights tennis team has a positive outlook about the upcoming season.

  • Girls look for new seedings
