  • Think before you drink

    Drinking and driving is something I learned about at a very young age. In fact, I remember the very first time I was faced with it. I remember it like it was yesterday.

  • Don’t wait... get hydrated

    By Josey Crew

    The summer is here, and we have already endured some very hot days.
    Hopefully, we are all eating less, exercising more, and staying hydrated by drinking more water.
    Water, the nutrient our body needs the most, also helps prevent dehydration. The effects of dehydration can range from thirst to kidney failure and are usually silent but progressive.
    Therefore, we need to pay attention to the early signs of water loss because before we know it, we can become severely dehydrated.

  • You go, girl!

    Christine Mattingly, Marion County and the state of Kentucky made their mark on Mobile, Ala., last week during the Distinguished Young Women National Finals.

In fact, the state of Kentucky bought more tickets for the competition than any other state.

  • Leading the way to success

    In high school, I remember studying for tests, going to the library to do research, writing papers and giving the occasional class presentation. I didn't come up with a new design for the expansion of a local library. I didn't invent an adjustable rifle sight, and I didn't try to develop a new way to carry my keys.

    But Marion County High School students have done all of those things during the past year.

  • Next Steps

    We were shocked Saturday morning when we heard that Marion County High School boys basketball coach Anthony Epps had been arrested for DUI and reckless driving.

    Just last month, Epps pled guilty to reckless driving, stemming from an incident in October, when he was initially charged with DUI.

    At first we didn't believe it. We didn't want to believe it, but it only took a few phone calls to confirm that it was true.
