  • A look back

    Now that the regular seasons are complete for the Marion County High School Knights and Lady Knights, I thought it would be a good time to look back at how they did throughout the year.
    The Knights started the season off on the right foot, winning their first four games. Two of those four wins came on the road at Nelson County and Washington County. The next game for the Knights took them to Madison Central to take on the currently seventh ranked team in the state. The Knights fell in that contest by 34 points, but had some stiff competition.

  • Kentucky native learns about 'gator hunting

    While in South Carolina I got to spend a few hours at the Myrtle Beach Outdoor Expo. There were a bunch of saltwater themed seminars and product but not much in the way of freshwater anything.
    But, it was "the beach," so I shouldn't have expected anything else. My dad was saved when I heard the sound of duck calls. Once I located that booth I learned of a duck-hunting seminar just getting ready to start. As I waited, I read the seminar schedule and "low country alligator hunting" caught my eye.
