  • Hunting season 'breaks loose' Sept. 1

    Had to run this in early due to being out of town over the weekend, but back by the time you read this!

    Anyway, just to get you caught up on what's in store: Aug. 15 is the opening of our squirrel season. Then, on Sept. 1, it sorta breaks loose. On that date we have several openings. Archery deer season starts and we have the early resident goose season and dove season. Just remember, you can't shoot doves, on opening day only, until 11 a.m. And, if you're hunting geese and doves, don't have any lead shot with you while goose hunting.

  • Obsessed with the Olympics

  • Into the hills of Kentucky

  • Change of pace

    In the last column I wrote, I ended by saying that watching the All-Stars play several nights in district and state competition made me miss playing myself.  Well, last weekend, I was able to play two days of softball, satisfying my craving for a while at least.

  • Little League success

  • On the move

    Yeah, as you can tell by my title, I have been on the move lately. Actually, that is why my husband Josh did two columns in a row and you didn't hear from me last week.  

  • Big Blue Nation

    As I have previously discussed, Jessica and I are members of the Big Blue Nation and watch every Wildcat game that we possibly can. Also, if you remember, Jessica's uncle Bobby Joe Farmer was a subject of a column previously on the same topic. We are proud of our team, and recently the rest of the country found out why we thought this past season's squad was one of the best.

  • Wannabe Warrior

    Saturday, Marion County hosted the first-ever Warrior Dash in the state of Kentucky. Most people locally had no idea what to expect when nearly 6,000 people descended upon a small town like Lebanon. There were a few snags in the events of the day, but when that many people come together in one spot, those things can be expected.

  • A good reason to be a fan

    This year, we will again have the chance to witness a spectacle of human ability and achievement. It is equally a celebration of commitment and talent. The participants only have this opportunity once every four years, which adds to its significance.
    Obviously, I'm not referring to the Presidential election. Instead, in a little over a month, the 2012 Olympic Summer Games will begin in London, England.

  • The week in sports

    As I sit at my computer typing my column this week, I have a heavy heart. It's hard to think of something to write, so I chose to take a look back at last week in the sports world, coming up with two sporting events that I wanted to discuss.
