  • Record-setting feat just Divine

    This week, I am going to use my column as a shout out to a Marion County High School athlete, one who participates in track and field. This athlete is a junior who has high expectations for himself as he competes in several events at each track meet. This athlete also wants to go to college and become a decathlete at whichever school he decides to attend in track and field. This athlete is Brooks Divine.

  • Outdoor options abound in Marion County

    A while back I told you about a couple of stat, KDFWR, projects in Marion County. This would be the boat ramp currently going in at the St. Joe Bridge and the “rumored” ramp at the bridge on Highway 55, Campbellsville Highway.
    These projects, when completed, will “open up” a large section of the Rolling Fork River. Then, our secret will be out: We have some of the best river fishing KY has to offer!

  • Softball team wins two big district games

    The Marion County Lady Knights softball team was scheduled to play in the Bullitt County Invitational this past weekend. However, due to the rain, the tournament was cancelled and will not be rescheduled. The Lady Knights were also in action on Monday and Tuesday of last week, competing in district games against Campbellsville and Taylor County. Marion County won both of those outings, taking their overall record to 10-3 and their district standings to 3-1.
    According to Head Coach Todd Spalding, when he took this job this is the way he envisioned his team playing.
