  • Lady Knights drop first match

    The Marion County High School girls golf team may be 0-1 in match play so far but Head Coach Danny McFall isn't fazed.

    The Lady Knights played well at Rosewood Golf Course on Thursday night but not well enough to beat a state title contender. Marion County fell to Green County 186 to 167.

    McFall said Green County's top four scores were in the high thirties and low forties.

    The Knights remain undefeated in match play and finished fairly well in the tournaments. While the Knights aren't hitting on all cylinders yet, there have been some good surprises so far.

  • Weird news lovers rejoice!

    One of my favorite things to do, if I'm not too busy at work, is to take a break and surf the Internet news sites, including online newspapers, for weird or interesting news stories. Many daily papers have a "weird news" or "offbeat" category that includes many of these types of stories.
