  • City council discusses flood study, costs

    Three times this year, downtown Lebanon has flooded due to heavy rains. 

    Following Monday’s regular meeting, the Lebanon City Council spent more than an hour in a work session with representatives of O’Brien and Gere Engineers about what steps are needed to address the problem.

    The initial proposal is to complete a study that would include a topographic study, aerial photogrammetric mapping, hydraulic models and technical memorandums. The cost for completing this study is $118,787.

  • More than a game

    Too many people take sports too seriously.

    But sometimes, sports are about more than just a game.

    During the past few weeks, Marion County athletes have proven that more than once.

    Last week, the Knights soccer team defeated Bullitt East, 9-0. The game was never in doubt. Marion County led 5-0 at the half, and they kept up the pressure in the second half.

  • Cardinals grounded

    Junior wide receiver Lincoln Haydon and senior running back Justin Dawson scored two touchdowns each to help lift Marion County a win on Homecoming night.

    Friday night, the Knights toppled the Taylor County Cardinals, 39-22, and picked up a win in their district opener.

    “We had the speed advantage … and that is what allowed us to win the ball game,” Marion County Coach Jeff Robbins said.

  • Eagles, Lady Knights end in a draw

    The Marion County Lady Knights started well on senior night, taking a 3-0 lead over the North Bullitt Lady Eagles on Oct. 2.

    But North Bullitt came back in the second half to earn a tie, 3-3.

    “It doesn’t start much better than that,” Lady Knights Coach Devin Johnson said. “You got to finish though.”

  • Over in a flash

    A little lightning shortened the Marion County Knights’ match Saturday night, but they had enough time to take a 5-0 win over the Fort Knox Eagles.

    The referees spotted lightning as the teams were returning to the field for the second half, which caused a mandatory 30-minute delay. Shortly thereafter, the teams agreed to call the game instead.

  • Two losses for Lady Knights

    Central Hardin visited the Marion County Lady Knights on Oct. 1 and returned home with a win. The Lady Bruins won the match in three sets, 25-17, 25-13, 25-20.

    “We couldn’t pass to save our lives,” Marion County Coach David Hibbard said.

    Nevertheless, Hibbard did see a bright spot for the Lady Knights. During the first half of the third set, Marion County was outplaying the Lady Bruins, even forcing them to take a timeout while trailing 17-12.
