    The past couple of weekends I’ve had the opportunity to attend the state tennis tournament and the state track meet, and other than state basketball, I had never been to a state event. It has been the most interesting experience for me, a good experience.

  • Keeping tabs on deer and...

    With the Memorial Day weekend, I had another early turn-in, so you’ll get another short article this week.
    I got my 2014-15 season’s deer harvest report the other day. It showed that this past season was the second highest harvest — with 138,892 animals taken — since the Department of Fish and Wildlife started keeping records. It was also the third consecutive year when more than 130,000 deer were killed.
    Owen County leads the state with 3,470 deer taken. Statewide, 45.7 percent of the deer checked were does.

    The Marion County Lady Knights softball team were the runner-up in last week's 20th District tournament, which earned them a spot in the 5th Region tournament at North Hardin High School in Elizabethtown.

    Marion County (22-11) was scheduled to play the Central Hardin Lady Bruins (29-7) Monday afternoon to open regional play, but that game has been moved to 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 26.

    Luckily for Marion County the rainy weather held off long enough May 16 for a color-filled 5K. Although it wasn’t a timed race, multicolored Ric Niemi crossed the finish line first in the Color in Motion 5K.
    Many families and friends gathered together to throw around some color and run a three-mile race before the rain hit. Before and after the 5K there was a fun, loud, musical, color throwing party that everyone enjoyed.
