  • Keeping up the tradition

    Through sheer adrenaline, sweat, determination, and skill, the Marion County Lady Knights took down the Adair County Lady Indians for the third time this season. The victory also marked the eighth consecutive year that the Lady Knights have secured the district title. 

    “It felt great winning the 20th District Tourney this season,” Lady Knights Coach Anthony Epps said in an email after the game. “That was one of our main goals going into this basketball season.”

  • Senate prepares for budget, legislation continues

    March promises many things here in Kentucky; for us in the Senate it is preparing for the most difficult part of the job, the biennial budget. As we await the House to pass its version, legislation continues in our chamber.
    On the Senate floor, I had the privilege of welcoming students from my district who paged for me during sessions. I also had the pleasure of participating in a Q & A session with students from Mercy Academy along with other members of the caucus. It is great to hear the perspectives of our youth.

  • Rough end for Knights

    It came down to one basket, one point, 1.8 seconds, and 23 feet. 

    On Feb 27, the Marion County Knights took on the Adair County Indians for the third time this season – it would be their last. 

    On paper, the Knights looked like the favorites; on the court it looked similar. Previously, the Knights (19-10) had defeated the Indians 70-63 and 70-55.

    But this time, the underdog came out on top.

  • Finding common ground with the Senate

    With March the last full month of this year’s legislative session, the Kentucky House and Senate are nearing the point where they will focus less on their own legislation and more on finding common ground with the other chamber. While the House is still finalizing several of its key bills, my fellow representatives and I have already passed a productive list for the Senate to consider.

  • Turtleman Trek offers live action

    Lebanon has seen more than its fair share of running events over the last few years – and so far, the expansion has shown no sign of slowing down. 

    On March 1, Marion County hosted its newest race, the Turtleman Trek 5K.

    The run took participants westward on Main Street as they passed the now closed Stillhouse. From there, runners visited sites where the Turtleman has appeared on his show, “The Call of the Wildman,” on Animal Planet.

  • These are your stories, photos

     The other evening I was at Roby Dome, no surprise, right? Well, it was Will Phillips’ last night on the job for The Enterprise, so I had the night off for the most part. 

    After doing some light reporting, I took on my role as a civilian to watch the game. 

    During the time between quarters, I went to use the restroom, and you’ll never guess what I found!

  • Be careful about who you take hunting, fishing with you

     It’s been kind of a blah week with very little going on. However, after last week’s article, I did secure two more farms to hunt coyotes on!

    So where are these farms? Well, they’re in Marion County! Ya didn’t actually think I’d put it in print, did ya? Not because I don’t want to share. It’s because I don’t want to burden landowners with having everyone calling them about hunting their property, and OK, I don’t really want to share.
