  • Hunting seasons we have left

    Every once in a while something happens which points out that not everybody understands what I write. I’m pretty sure that happens when I just take for granted that everyone hunts and/or fishes!
    Case in point: I recently wrote about duck hunting and the use of a blind. Well, I got a call from a lady, who is an accomplished angler, asking what a “blind” was. Kinda caught me flat footed and brought home the notion that I should maybe explain myself a little better when I write.

  • Knights win OT thriller

    The Marion County High School boys travelled to Campbellsville for a 20th district game Friday. In a game in which neither  team ever led by more than seven points, the teams ended regulation deadlocked, 50-50. In overtime, the Knights managed two more points than the Eagles to win 56-54 and improve to 8-8 on the season.
    The opening quarter would set the tone for the entire game. Neither team led by more than two points, and a pair of free throws by Jalen Powell left the score tied 11 to end the quarter.
