  • WOODS AND WATERS: Nothin’ goin’ on but Ham Days stuff week

    There I stood, anticipating the 2016 season. I’d gotten some new stuff over the summer and was thinking, “Maybe this would be the season.”
    So there I was, patiently waiting … who am I kidding … I was anxious! You don’t practice all summer gettin’ ready’ and not be excited when the time comes! Course ‘I’ don’t practice very much!

  • Vaught’s Views: Epps is typical, tough Kentucky kid who hates to lose

    By Larry Vaught

    Kentucky football fans have been some of the most loyal fans in the country. Not saying it is easy to be a Kentucky basketball fan, but it is. The basketball team wins and competes for national championships. The football team … well losing seasons are far too common.
    Many fans failed to renew their season tickets this year. Many are already indicating barring a miraculous finish to the season, they will join the non-renew group next year.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Knights grab No. 2 seed

    A new look offense and defense was not enough to counteract the Lady Knights' mistakes in a loss at the LaRue County Lady Hawks in four sets (28-26, 21-25, 17-25, 20-25) on Sept. 20.
    The loss dropped the Lady Knights to 10-10 overall.
    "We felt like we needed to adjust our line-up to get more offense after our tournament so we made a few changes and played much better," Lady Knights Head Coach David Hibbard said.

  • Grand ham slam

    “It’s essential to keep an open mind, and to be willing – better yet, eager – to try new things.” - Michael Abrash

    Trying new things can be challenging, and darn near impossible for some people who dislike change. But, often times, it’s very much worth it.
    Such is the case with this year’s Marion County Country Ham Days Festival.

  • Ham Days at its best

    I wasn’t sure what to expect of my first Ham Days. It was one of the first things I heard about when I was hired in June (we even talked about it in my interview). I remember seeing the signs advertising it the first day I drove into Lebanon. I thought to myself, I wonder what Ham Days is?
    I soon found out that it was a festival (obviously), but I had no idea how much it was ingrained into the very fabric of this county’s culture. To an outsider, I thought, great, a festival about pigs. But I soon realized that it is so much more than that.

  • BOYS SOCCER: Knights tie for third time

    The Knights tied for the third time this season against the Anderson County Bearcats, 3-3, on the road on Sept. 13.
    "We did play very well, but we made a silly mistake that got them on the board halfway into the half," Head Coach Greg Conley said. "We had several good opportunities but failed to capitalize."
    The Knights (7-4-3) then made another defensive mistake, allowing the Bearcats (4-5-1) to make it 2-0 going into the half.

  • FOOTBALL: Eagles fly past Knights

    Mother Nature sent bolt after bolt of lightning, forcing the kickoff of the Marion County-North Bullitt game to be postponed by nearly an hour Friday night, Sept. 16.
    Then, after kickoff, North Bullitt (4-1) sent lightning strikes of their own, racing to a 47-18 win on John J. Boswell Field amidst a flurry of big plays and mistakes committed by the Knights (1-4).
    Knights Head Coach Allen Harmon said his team dug themselves into a hole early.

  • My role model

    Almost every NFL fan has a player (or players) they look up to, admire, or just enjoy watching play. These players span across generations, dates, players, positions, teams and playing styles. These players are made famous for many reasons, whether it is their legendary status as an extremely talented player, their personality, their work and activities off the field, or their overall body of work.
