  • Carrico makes history

    Excellence in multiple sports would have left a legacy behind for Tommy Carrico. He just sealed the deal when he inked a golf scholarship with Morehead State University recently.

    Carrico is the first Marion County High School golfer to receive a scholarship from a Division I school directly out of high school, according to boy's golf Head Coach Freddie Leathers. Beverly Brockman received a Division I scholarship but she was one year removed from Marion County when she did so.

  • Jars of hope

    The earthquake that has devastated the capital city of Haiti is an unbelievably cruel disaster for a country that is already one of the poorest and neglected countries in the world. The thousands of lives that have been lost and the devastation that has been left behind are almost too mind-boggling to comprehend.

    But it's real.

    It may be thousands of miles away from us, but there is a simple way we can help the starving people of Haiti who, we might add, have been starving long before this disaster occurred.

  • Remembering Officer David Ford

    Lebanon City Hall was standing room only Tuesday of last week during a memorial service for slain Lebanon Police Officer David Ford.

    Ford was found shot to death in his home in Campbellsville on Feb. 10, 2009. Last week, friends, family and fellow officers took time to remember Ford.

    "I never thought that someone from a small police department like ours could affect so many people," LPD K-9 Officer Byron Richardson said.

    Hope Barrett left Marion Adjustment Center Saturday afternoon with a smile on her face and a new dog by her side.

    The dog, McGyver, is a 4-year-old Great Pyrenees and shepherd mix, who was trained behind the fences of the Columbia unit, the medium security area at Marion County's private prison.

    As Barrett and McGyver were leaving, Thomas Elza, an inmate at MAC, followed close behind, offering tips on how to help McGyver adapt to his new home.

The next, emcee Jeremy Bowman was calling Raymer to take the stage and play his banjo for the estimated 200 people who attended Friday evening's show.

    And a minute after that, three-time national banjo champion Gary "Biscuit" Davis joined Raymer on stage.

    "It was a little bit scary," Raymer said after coming off stage, despite the smile on his face.
