  • Waterfowl season has been foul

    Well, as much as I dislike politics, I listened to Obama’s gun control speech. Like some of what I heard, dislike some of what I heard and wish some other stuff had been explained. Oh yeah, the above are my opinions and do not reflect those of The Lebanon Enterprise… or something like that!

  • Leading the way

    It’s always with much anticipation for me when the Kentucky High School Athletic Association releases the first basketball stats for the current season. Recently, that finally happened.
    As you may have guessed, with a 19-0 girls basketball team, we should find some entries for Marion County in or near the top of the respective categories. And that is exactly what we have.

  • Lady Knights crush Indians

    The Marion County High School Lady Knights basketball team hosted the Adair County Lady Indians at the Roby Dome Wednesday. After a bit of a sluggish start, the Lady Knights pulled away and won by a final score of 71-40 to improve to 19-0 on the season.  
    Early on, Adair County stayed in the game and actually led by three points with five minutes to go in the opening frame. The score remained close as the quarter went on until Marion County went on a 9-2 run to end the frame. The spurt allowed the Lady Knights to take a 14-10 lead into the second quarter.

  • Countdown to 3,000: Epps needs 51 points

    After the win over Mercy Saturday in which Makayla Epps had 22 points, she now has 2,949 career points.  
    She needs 51 total points to reach 3,000 career points, joining only 20 other girls’ basketball players in Kentucky since 1975.
    Rebecca Greenwell surpassed 3,000 career points on Jan. 17, which will now make Epps the 20th member of the 3,000-point club.
    She currently is averaging 22.3 points per game.
    She will most likely surpass 3,000 points in the Raatz Fence Classic in Louisville this weekend.
