  • 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.

  • A new team

  • A disturbing problem

    Before I get into explaining my title this week, let me just say that I love all things involved with sports. That is all things, except cheaters.  
    If you have been keeping up with sports news recently, you know that there have been several different stories pop up about professional athletes who have been accused of or caught using performance enhancing drugs.

  • On the sidelines

    Well, the time has finally arrived. Another football season for the Marion County Knights and another year on the sidelines taking pictures for me. I absolutely love this time of year. The weather starts to cool down and the football games on Friday, sometimes Saturday nights are the best place to be. To top it off, I get to be right beside the action, walking back and forth on the Knights sideline trying to find the perfect angle to get the best picture.

  • A busy time of year

    After surviving a hot and record-breaking summer, school has now begun in Marion County. I know that school kids that are reading this are disappointed, but I am relieved that this has happened. I can't say the same for Jessica however, since she teaches fourth grade and had to head back to work. 

  • 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.
