  • Healthcare CHOICE for all

    There certainly is a lot of debate in Congress as well as small town America about the challenge of reforming healthcare/health insurance in the United States today.

  • 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.

  • Knights golf team fares well

    The Marion County High School boys golf team battled some of the state's best teams this week and came out with only a few scratches.

    Head Coach Freddie Leathers sent his team into the fray this week in two tough tournaments (Danville Invitational, Taylor County Cardinal Classic) and competed in match play against local rivals such as Taylor, Campbellsville and Washington County.

    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.
