  • Danville eliminates Knights

     

    The young Knights didn't have enough firepower to keep up with powerhouse Danville on Thursday, bowing out 6-1 at Rebel Stadium in Danville during the second round of the district tournament.

    "I knew going in it was a tall order," Head Coach Greg Conley said. "Danville is ranked 12th in state and should be higher I think. They move the ball well and the turf (at Rebel Stadium) exposes our lack of speed."

  • Lady Knights clinch three-peat

     

    The Marion County High School volleyball team made program history Tuesday night of last week by winning an unprecedented third consecutive district championship.

    The Knights knocked off Taylor County 2-0 (25-19, 26-24) for the third straight year. The teams have played in the district championship in the last years, ever since they joined the same district.

  • 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.

    Marksberry, 47, is the Democratic challenger facing incumbent Rep. Brett Guthrie, a Republican, on Nov. 2. Marksberry is running because of the differences he perceives between himself and Guthrie (see related story).

  • Mid-Kentucky Arts opens season with "Music of James Taylor & Friends"

    On Friday, Oct. 29 and Saturday, Oct. 30, the music of James Taylor comes to Central Kentucky. Gary Vidito, a well-known area musician, will lead the concert and bring alive the well loved classics of James Taylor. 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?
