  • Correction - Athletes of the Year

    In the 2011 Athletes of the Year section, there were some inaccuracies in the girls golf story featuring Amy Brown. It was reported that Brown had become the first Marion County High School female golfer to qualify for state level competition in back-to-back seasons. Actually, several other female golfers from Marion County High School have qualified for the state tournament, in two or more consecutive seasons.

    As a 37-year-old mom of two with a full-time job, Elizabethtown’s Beverly Games doesn’t play as much golf as she’d like.
    When she does play, like she did June 25 in the 50th Lady Bug Invitational at Elizabethtown Country Club, Games likes what she sees.
    Games shot a 69 for a four-stroke win in the 44-player field - one more than competed earlier in the week in the Women’s Kentucky State Amateur in Murray.

  • The Overstreets love the game

    For Troy and Paula Overstreet, Little League is truly a way of life.
    They are involved in the Little League programs at both Graham Memorial Park and in Bradfordsville. They coach, they help with bookkeeping, and they even help prepare fields for play.
    They do it all.

  • New air ambulance service coming to the area

    Air Methods, the nation's largest air medical transport service, is setting up shop in central Kentucky.

    "We are going to be coming to the Lebanon-Springfield Airport in mid-July, and we are looking forward to it," said Leslie McCabe, area business manager for Air Methods.

    This will be Air Methods' 12th base in Kentucky, and they want to get to know their new neighbors. They are hosting an open house from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 23 at the airport.

  • Represent!

    "Is there anyone left in Kentucky?"

    Christine Mattingly heard that question a lot while competing in the 54th Distinguished Young Women National Finals held June 23-25 in Mobile, Ala.

    While it's customary for Mississippi and Alabama to bring a big crowd to the competition, it's rather unusual to have such a large following from The Bluegrass State.

    But, as Buddy Hoskinson, chairman of the Kentucky Junior Miss, said, Marion County "knows how to do it right."
