  • Divine Equine

    Though school is out, it does not mean children can’t learn.
    The Horse Club, taught and led by Joseph Grant, Ruth Mackey and Scott Gardiner, allows children to learn about horses as well as increase their physical abilities as they learn how to bond with the equine species.
    So far, the children in attendance have worked on crafts, learned about saddles and other equipment, as well as how to interact with, ride and groom horses.

  • Hunter education class at Sportsman Lake Aug. 3

    Early deadline again. And again, not much to write about!
    Did find out something interesting you’ll want to remember.
    Last Friday I was stopped at Sportsman Lake and told there would be a hunter education class (orange card class) held there on Aug. 3.
    That’s right, apparently the class has gone from a three-day venue to a one day, eight-hour class.

  • Moooove over Warrior Dash

    By Nick Schrager

    It began in the tune of an air horn. Like a riot, people from all over the state ripped and roared in waves through a single choke point, the starting line. In the group of adrenaline filled runners, there were cries of joy while others said nothing at all. It was all drowned out in the thumps of feet hitting the dirt and mud.

  • Fighting to survive

    What happened? Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet announced June 25 that it would not enter into a new contract with Marion Adjustment Center. Prison officials hope the state will reverse its decision to end the contract.

    Before Marion Adjustment Center opened more than 30 years ago, Marion County was divided over whether it should be allowed to operate here.
    After a surprise decision last week, the private prison in St. Mary is now fighting to survive.
