  • Playoff push is on

    Well, the Lady Knights capped off another undefeated district run this year.  Not surprising, since they haven't lost a district game in 1,843 days counting today. The last loss was to Adair County at home on Jan. 23, 2007 in a 64-59 overtime loss. This also happens to be the only district loss under Head Coach Trent Milby.
    Ok, enough about the Lady Knights and their unprecedented run. Let's talk about the Knights and their success over the past couple of seasons.

  • Don't let your hunting license expire

    Your Kentucky hunting and fishing license will expire in a couple of weeks, on Feb. 29, Benny Kessler's birthday.
    I usually get my new one at the Louisville Boat Show but missed it this year. My preference is for the Sportsman's license. With this deal you'll be able to hunt and fish for everything Kentucky has to offer, except elk.
    Add a federal duck stamp for 2012 and you're ready to go for the year. Deer tags, wild turkey permits (spring and fall), waterfowl, doves and fishing are all included. Sorta like one-stop shopping.

  • Knights defeat Taylor County Cardinals, 67-51

    The Marion County Knights varsity basketball team played the second game of a doubleheader Friday night against Taylor County in a game that would decide the outright winner of the 20th district. After a close game early on, the Knights pulled away and went on to win 67-51.
    After finding themselves in a tie game early in the second half, senior John Southall and sophomore Alex Smith hit three pointers on three straight trips for the Knights to put them on top by nine points. After that point, the Cardinals would never lead again.

  • Lady Knights cruise to victory in Taylor County

  • Education bills and the Turtleman in Frankfort

    The Senate passed several bills last week. Of these bills, three education bills are of particular importance.

  • House looks at human trafficking

    It was a hectic and busy week in Frankfort as we worked through the challenges of the House and Senate redistricting plans. We are hopeful that this will be resolved soon so that we can dedicate our full attention to budget issues and important legislation needed to move Kentucky forward.

  • Local legislators look to trim government waist

    Bipartisanship is practically dead, both in Frankfort and in Washington D.C.
    But from time to time, Democrats and Republicans have found issues that bring them together.
    At the state level, we’ve seen a few examples so far.
    - Secretary of Agriculture James Comer, a Republican, and State Auditor Adam Edelen, a Democrat, are working together on an audit of the former ag secretary Richie Farmer’s books.
    - Politicians on both sides of the aisle have recognized something has to be done to stem the tide of prescription pills flooding the state.
