  • Sports can spur us to some serious discussions

    By Matt Overing 

    Rory McIlroy became just the third golfer in history to win three majors at the age of 25, joining Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods. He made it faster than former greats like Gary Player and Steve Ballesteros. 

    So, naturally, the sporting world has dubbed him the “next great golfer.” I’ve heard some proclaiming he is the “heir to Tiger’s throne” at the top of the golf world.

  • Working the puzzle with softball

     Though the rain would cut them short, Kroger hosted a softball tournament to benefit Working the Puzzle for Autism on July 19.

    Kayla Thompson, who organized the event, said that despite the rain, the tournament went well. 

    “We all work at Kroger and we like to do stuff for the community,” Thompson said. “And we thought this would be a good way you know, to get the community together and come out to support a good cause.”

  • On the road to becoming a ‘pro’ fisherman

    Phyllis Ann Spalding Barnett says she is a storyteller, not a writer.
    Her book, "Between the Rows," reads like a story, not like the usual 500-page novel.
    In fact, Barnett’s book is just 180 pages long. It offers a fictional account of growing marijuana in Kentucky and the trouble it brought to a small community.

  • City seeks to condemn Boldrick Avenue house

    The City of Lebanon is seeking to condemn 200 Boldrick Avenue.

    The petition names Rhonda Molden, any unknown spouse of Rhonda Molden, and the occupant (if any) of 200 Boldrick Avenue and Marion County government as defendants.
