  • Looking for bass? Then prepare to go deep

    I had an announcement in my last week’s article about the Kid’s Fishing Derby at Sportsman Lake last Saturday.
    Unfortunately the article got cut and never made it to print. Not sure why, but sometimes it happens!
    Anyway, we had a good turnout and the kids all enjoyed themselves. Thanks go out to everyone who helped, especially the Mid-KY Bass Anglers and the Washington County High School Bass Club.
    A special thanks to Jason Spalding for organizing this years’ event.

  • Elvis is coming to Angelic Hall

    Entertainer Eddie Miles is coming home to Marion County and performing the music of America’s most beloved entertainer, Elvis Presley. This uncanny tribute also includes an opening show saluting the legends of country music, featuring the songs of Marty Robbins, Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty and others.
    Miles headlined in Collingwood, Canada in 2001 at the World’s Largest Elvis Festival. He also headlined at the Orpheum Theatre in Memphis in a tribute show commemorating the 25th anniversary of Elvis’s death.

  • Court receives budgets from four special districts

    The Marion County Fiscal Court accepted the 2013-14 budgets from three local special districts and from the Lincoln Trail Area Development District during its June 6 meeting.
    Special districts have received added attention in the past year, in part because of efforts by State Auditor Adam Edelen to raise awareness about those districts. Edelen’s office created a website with information about the districts, and during the 2013 General Assembly, legislation was approved with the intent to further increase the availability of information about those districts.
