  • Cakes given as a sign of appreciation

    On Monday, Sept. 10 at 10 a.m. employees of Cash Express of Lebanon delivered cakes to Lebanon EMS, Lebanon Fire Department, Loretto Fire Department and the Marion County Sheriff’s office as a small gesture to say thanks for all that you do. Small gestures can carry big messages.  They are simply doing what many Americans feel on 9/11, a sense of thanks and respect for first responders. The tragic events of 9/11 remind us that life can be too short, so we must express our gratitude when we can.

  • My point of view

    While writing game reports and stories about the variety of sporting events we cover, I am supposed to remain objective and report on facts alone. At times that can be difficult. When I am at games and I feel that our team or a member of our team has been on the receiving end of anything that I don't think is right, I am upset. At least I am upset on the inside, but on the outside I try my best to keep my emotions to myself.

  • Football Knights fall to Southwestern Warriors

  • Knights golf has good week

    The Marion County High School golf team played two matches last week. One match was against Mercer County and the other match was against Nelson County and Green County.
