  • Dollars for dollars

    It's been said that you have to spend money to make money.

  • Lady Knights look tough

    Marion County cruised to a crucial Fifth Region victory over Elizabethtown on Thursday at E'town to demonstrate their dominance over region opponents this season and advance their overall record to 24-1.

    A win over Taylor County on Friday night at Taylor extended their winning streak to 12 games.

    Marion County 65, Taylor County 28

    "We were a little sluggish and figured that would be the case," Lady Knights Head Coach Trent Milby said. "We were still playing pretty good considering. We played really good defense on them."

  • Mercy comes to town

    This week the Lady Knights face a familiar Fifth Region foe, a border rival and then play host to the number two team in the state.

  • Epps featured in '96 Cats documentary

    Remember back to 1996. Remember Anthony Epps, Antoine Walker, Tony Delk, Ron Mercer and the rest of the Untouchables. It's easy to remember because Epps proved he was a winner on the high school and college level.

    Now it's going to be easier to remember that season when the '96 University of Kentucky men's basketball team won the NCAA championship. On Friday, the Derek Anderson Foundation presents the official blue carpet screening of the "Untouchables of Kentucky" documentary at the Hyatt Regency Ballroom in Lexington.

  • Knights battle Fifth Region opponents

  • Accepting RACHEL's CHALLENGE

    Craig Scott issued a challenge to local middle and high school students Monday.

    It's a message Scott has delivered hundreds of times to hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of students around the country. It's a message that was inspired by his own experience as one of the survivors of the Columbine High School shootings that took place April 20, 1999.

    And it was also inspired by his sister, Rachel Joy Scott, who was the first person killed that day.

    "She believed that no great person has ever done anything great on their own," Scott said.
