  • Lady Knights pound Green County by 35

    On Tuesday of last week, the Marion County Lady Knights faced the Green County Lady Dragons at the Roby Dome. The Lady Knights raced ahead from the beginning and were able to keep the Lady Dragons on the ropes. A quick spurt early in the first quarter from the locals gave a glimpse of how the game would play out.  Marion County’s up-tempo offense and smothering defense proved to be too much for Green County in a 77-42 rout.

  • It’s beginning to look/sound like Christmas

    The big day is near! The weather has certainly done its part to set the season’s mood and people, for the most part, have been…well…nicer.
    I’ve heard more people say “excuse me” and “thank you” in the last couple of weeks than since our 2009 Christmas season.
    Guess everyone is making a serious move to get on the “good boy/girl” list.
    Homes and yards have gone from the dull gray shades of winter to the beautiful lights of the season.

  • Enjoy Christmas brunch

    This week’s recipes are great for a Christmas morning brunch. It’s good to have a couple of hot breakfast dishes on Christmas morning.
    The first recipe is one from my friend Mary Jane Shockency. I found it in 1993 in a St. A cookbook, and have used it ever since.
    The second recipe, Overnight Caramel French Toast, is kid-tested and Mother-approved, as they used to say on TV.
