  • Excessive celebration?


    First of all, I need to start my column this week with a word of thanks to three people.
    This past Friday morning my sister had a minor run in with Mother Nature. As she was driving to school, her car hit a patch of ice and slid into oncoming traffic.
    Luckily, the oncoming drivers, which included a school bus, were driving slowly enough to avoid a collision and no one was harmed.
    After sliding into the oncoming lane, she headed her car into the nearest parking lot, which happened to be at The Work Connection.

  • Knight basketball history

    The Marion County Knights’ basketball program has had its ups and downs over the 41 seasons it has been in existence. To start with, there have been 11 different head coaches, with the longest tenured head coach being Tim Davis who coached the Knights for 12 seasons in the 1980s and 1990s.
    A quick look through history will show some of the reasons for the swings in the program’s history.

  • There’s a first time for everything

    Okay. So I thought that running in 5K races was going to be the only thing I did for the first time this year.
    I completed my first one in Campbellsville in July and my second one, the Pokey Pig, at Ham Days.
    Did I do great?
    No not great, but I finished and I was happy with that.

  • It’s beginning to look/sound like Christmas

    The big day is near! The weather has certainly done its part to set the season’s mood and people, for the most part, have been…well…nicer.
    I’ve heard more people say “excuse me” and “thank you” in the last couple of weeks than since our 2009 Christmas season.
    Guess everyone is making a serious move to get on the “good boy/girl” list.
    Homes and yards have gone from the dull gray shades of winter to the beautiful lights of the season.

  • State title coming?

    With the Lady Knights starting the season 5-0, they appear to be poised for another run to the state tournament.  
    Last season ended in heartbreak and disappointment for the Lady Knights who ran into eventual state champions, Mercy, on March 10, 2010, in the opening round of the state tournament at E.A. Diddle Arena.  This season’s schedule holds a rematch with Mercy on Feb. 15 when Marion County travels to Louisville to face the Jaguars.  

  • A new sports team

    Over the past two years, many of you have read the numerous columns and other sports stories written by Jesse Osborne.
    Jesse has a special way of communicating his thoughts into words on a newspaper page, not to mention his passion to catch just the right photo to accompany them.
    He has taken a full-time position writing in Springfield that will include news and sports. I hope he will be successful and do well in his new position.
