  • BASKETBALL: Lady Knights continue adjustment to new system in scrimmage

    Lady Knights Head Coach Kelly Wood said he used Marion County’s final scrimmage Thursday against Bethlehem as a test gauge, trying to get an idea of what his team could do well at and what they needed work on as Wood brings along a new system.
    After two scrimmages, there’s still work to be done before things can really start coming together.
    “It’s going to be a process to figure out things,” Wood said. “I tried a little bit of everything to see where we were. We did some good things and we made some mistakes.”

  • Rural mental health care must not be overlooked

    By Jordan Rasmussen
    Center for Rural Affairs

    The challenges that try rural communities in nearly all aspects of health care – greater travel distances, fewer providers, heightened health concerns, lower incomes – also stand in the way of the delivery of behavioral and mental health care services. While there is not a greater prevalence of mental illness among rural residents, a significant disparity exists in access to mental health services and care for rural populations.

  • Everyday miracles

    “The sunrise, of course, doesn’t care if we watch it or not. It will keep on being beautiful, even if no one bothers to look at it.” - Gene Amole

    The sunrise – it’s sort of become my thing.
    As my family and friends can attest, I rise WAAAAAAY before the sun does at least six days a week. And one of my favorite things to do is watch the sunrise.
