  • Three injured in two-vehicle crash on US 68

    Three people were injured Wednesday in a two-vehicle crash on U.S. 68.

    According to a Taylor County Sheriff's Office report, David Sandusky, 41, of 3200 St. Rose Road in Lebanon was traveling east on U.S. 68 at about 7 p.m.

  • Bitter Sweet

    Marion County High School repeated history Friday night, losing in the state semifinal game in Paducah against an offensive powerhouse. It was the first time the Knights had been back to the state semi-finals since 1987, and that squad also lost to a team from Paducah.

  • MCHS Aqua Knights attend first meet

    The Marion County High School swim team competed in the Lakers Fall Preview Meet at the Russell Springs Natatorium on Saturday, Nov. 21.

    "It was a good introduction to competitive swimming for the young team members," said Coach Colleen Ryan. "And, for the more experienced swimmers, it showed that it was time to get serious and identified what areas need work."

  • H1N1 vaccines available for all elementary school students

      • Dec. 3: West Marion Elementary from 8:30 a.m. - 12 p.m.

  • Educate yourself, then decide

    Tuesday, voters in Marion, Mercer, Nelson, Taylor and Washington counties have the opportunity to vote for their next state senator.

    Based on the number of signs I've seen, I get the impression that many people have already made up their minds.

    That said, I hope every eligible voter (regardless of who they are planning to vote for) takes some time in the next week to evaluate the candidates, not just their party affiliation. (I'll avoid a rant about how worthless party affiliation is.)

  • Updated information about H1N1, vaccines

    The following information was provided by the Lincoln Trail District Health Department:

    Approximately 1500 H1N1 influenza vaccinations were given in the schools in the Lincoln Trail District (which includes Marion County) last week.

    "The school clinics have gone well and we've seen a good response to the clinics," stated Linda Sims, director of Lincoln Trail District Health Department. "We will continue holding the school clinics through the end of the year."

    School clinics are scheduled to continue this month.

  • Lady Knights have high expectations

    This season the Marion County Lady Knights come out with targets on their backs. That tends to happen when state and national publications rank you No. 1 in the state and region. Add a tough schedule from top to bottom and Head Coach Trent Milby has the makings for a championship season.

    "You're looking at 16 games against top 20 teams. That means that you just have to be ready to play each and every game," Milby said. "We're already going to take everybody's best shot as it is."

  • Cleaning up

    The Lebanon City Council has only approved the first reading of a proposed property maintenance code ordinance, but building inspector John Thompson believes it is already making a difference.

    "One lady has already torn three houses down," he said. "We may already be experiencing the effects of the ordinance."

    Thompson hopes that is only the beginning. He estimated there are 10 properties in the city that could become the focus of the city's initial enforcement efforts if the council approves a second reading of the ordinance.
