  • Dove, goose season open Sept. 1

    Last week I talked about dove season opening on Sept. 1. What I failed to mention was that you can't start hunting until 11 a.m. That's only on Sept. 1! Why? I have no idea cause the rest of the season you can start a half-hour before sunrise.
    I also didn't mention that squirrel season opens on Aug. 18. While I enjoy squirrel hunting I prefer to wait until it gets cooler. There's just something about keeping one eye on the trees for squirrels and one on the ground for snakes!

  • Soccer teams eye district titles

    The Marion County High School Knights and Lady Knights soccer teams have been practicing heavily over the past several weeks in preparation for the upcoming season.

Nine seniors, including offensive weapons John Southall and Christian Carmona, graduated from the team. Replacing Southall and Carmona "will be a tall order," Head Coach Greg Conley said, but he thinks the team is up to it.
