  • Freshman Knights win district

    Saturday morning the Marion County Knights freshman team competed in the 20th district tournament held at Marion County High School. The Knights headed into the tournament as the No. 1 seed with an unblemished record of 6-0 on the regular season. After dispatching the Campbellsville Eagles in their opening round game by a score of 57-35, Marion County faced a tough opponent in Taylor County. After a close and hard fought game throughout, the freshman Knights were able to come back and defeat the Cardinals with a final score of 48-46 to capture the 2010-11 20th district title.

  • Easy Valentine blooms keep on giving

     

     

    I have a handful of phalaenopsis about the house and three of them have just begun to shoot up a bloom spike that once in bloom (probably still about a month away) will bloom for months if I keep them out of direct sunlight.

    One plant is like 10 fresh cut bouquets and they are so delicately lovely you just can’t beat them as a nice Valentine gesture!

  • Cabin fever can cause weird activities

    Cabin fever has taken a firm hold, so I’ve started to do some fairly weird stuff.
    First I cleaned my casting reels, which certainly is not weird in itself. But, apparently practicing my pitching and flipping off the front porch-in the snow-seemed a little strange. I can only gauge this by the reactions I noticed as some of my neighbors drove by.
    And yes, this act of pure desperation might well be at least strange. But, I’ll bet that most anglers have made a few casts out their door, in their yard or down the hall.
    Be honest, you know you have!

  • Lady Knights fall to Elizabethtown at home

    The Marion County Lady Knights varsity girls basketball team hosted the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers at the Roby Dome Thursday.
    The match-up of two top 10 ranked teams did not disappoint the fans, as the game was close throughout.  Elizabethtown made all nine of their free throw attempts in the fourth quarter, and only missed one free throw throughout the entire game to defeat the Lady Knights by nine points, with a final score of 55-46.
    “When a team shoots 20-21 it’s tough to beat especially if you get behind,” Head Coach Trent Milby said.

  • Use stale bread for breaded pork chops

     

     

     “How do you come up with all those recipes?”

    People ask me this all the time, and there are lots of answers. Here’s one.

    Last week I had some three-day-old bread I needed to do something with. I make bread every week, and if it starts to get stale, I usually make croutons or crumbs or something so as not to waste it.

  • Girls dominate Commanderettes

    Saturday the Marion County Lady Knights varsity girls basketball team traveled to Springfield to take on the Washington County Lady Commanderettes. Nine different Lady Knights scored as Marion County cruised to a 24 point win over Washington County, defeating the Commanderettes by a final score of 66-42.  Junior Bre Elder led the way for the Lady Knights with a game high 18 points.

  • Ewarrants are in effect

    District Judge Amy Anderson was on her way home recently when she received a call requesting her signature on a warrant.

    Anderson pulled off the road, used her cell phone to access LINK (the Law Enforcement Information Network of Kentucky) and signed off on the warrant electronically.

    This process became possible as a result of the implementation of electronic warrants in the 11th Judicial Circuit, which includes Green, Marion, Taylor and Washington counties.

  • Legislative round-table

    Budget cuts, illegal immigration and Medicaid... Oh my.

    Those were just a few of the topics discussed during the Jan. 29th legislative forum hosted by Marion County Farm Bureau.

    U.S. Congressman Brett Guthrie, State Sen. Jimmy Higdon and State Rep. Terry Mills were all in attendance, along with a room full of farmers, local officials and Marion County citizens.
