  • All for one and done?

    By Will Phillips

    Because I’m the world’s worst sports fan, and also a part time masochist, I often ask myself, “What’s the worst thing about college sports?” 

    Is it the disregard for education in favor of athletics? Is it the commercialization of student athletes? Is it the bureaucratic show that is the BCS Bowl season?

    Tensions were high as the Marion County Knights and Lady Knights opened district play by hosting the Adair County Indians and Lady Indians. Both the Knights (3-1) and Lady Knights (2-0) would taste victory after defeating their opponents 59-49 and 70-63, respectively.

    Both wins were hard earned. 

  • A year later, Taylor County shelter doing 'best we can'

    It's been about a year since magistrates decided to no longer house animals from other counties at Taylor County Animal Shelter.
    And since then, officials say, changes have been made to see the shelter become even better than it used to be.
    Last year, allegations were made claiming the shelter wasn't operating as it should. Protesters stood at the shelter with homemade signs proclaiming that the shelter wasn't clean and animals were not being treated properly.

  • Epps scores eight day after wreck

    Former Lady Knight Makayla Epps was involved in an automobile accident Saturday evening on the Bluegrass Parkway, but that didn’t stop her from scoring eight points and grabbing three rebounds in the Kentucky women’s basketball win over East Tennessee State on Sunday.

    “Somebody ran into me. But, I’m here and that’s the best thing. Nothing terrible happened. I’m here and I got the opportunity to play,” Epps said in postgame comments posted on the UK women’s basketball website.

  • Soccer a net gain for Tom

    Marion County has a tradition of producing great athletes, but as parents and coaches know, once they have shaped their young, it’s time to let them fly. Such is almost always the case when they graduate from high school.

    Sabrina Tom is the daughter of Dr. Todd and Fazilah Tom and a former MCHS soccer player. After she graduated in 2010, she began her college athletic career. 

  • Marion County teams lose two

    Both the Marion County Knights and Lady Knights tasted defeat on the road over the weekend.

    On Dec. 14, the Lady Knights (2-1) were hosted by the Pleasure Ridge Park Lady Panthers (3-0) in the Dixie Highway Shootout. Unfortunately, the Lady Knights were overcome by the Lady Panthers, 60-54.

  • Getting the lead out

    It seems like we’ve reached another level in our downward spiral!

    As of Dec. 5, the Doe Run Company closed its doors, permanently.

    So what’s the big deal about one company closing up operations? Normally I’d say “What’s new,” it seems to be happening all the time.
