  • Not so lucky

     Superstition. 

    It’s a word that with a definition that some might call degrading.

    Merriam-Webster.com defines superstition as: “a belief or practice resulting from ignorance, fear of the unknown, trust in magic or chance, or a false conception of causation.”

    Wow. 

  • How to be a bass fisherman

     So you want to be a bass angler! Well, first you need a boat. Not just any boat, but a bass boat. Something in the 18-foot, on the short side, to around 21-feet in length. Cost? Around $40,000 to $60,000 or, in the neighborhood of $400 per month for 15 years!

    Of course you won’t pull it very far with the family minivan, so you’ll need a truck, with a big gas guzzling V8 with lots of power and torque. Or maybe a big four-door,one-ton diesel. Of course diesel will cost more but you can’t put a price on cool!

  • Bass fishing team may be in...

    In late November last year, Marion County High School was given the go ahead to create a bass fishing team by the Marion County Board of Education. The 4-1 one vote in favor of the team passed on Nov. 26. 

    But, even with the board’s blessings, the team has gotten off to a slow start.

    And now, the question arises, will there be any fishing team at all?

  • MCHS girls soccer coach resigns

    On April 18, Devin Johnson resigned as the Marion County High School girls soccer coach with an announcement that he will be returning to college.

    He plans to return to school at Kentucky Christian University to get a degree in sports management and to resume playing soccer. 

    Johnson said he will miss being with his teammates because there was always something to do and laugh at during games and at practice, but that coaching doesn’t actually replace playing soccer.
