  • Mother Nature

    What's the ideal type of weather for you? Sunny and 75 degrees? Cloudy and a little cool? Snow, with a little more snow? No matter what the weather is, people will almost always wish the weather were different. If it's sunny and 75 degrees, perhaps they wish it weren't so dry. If it's a cloudy and cool, it needs to be warmer. I'm freezing, come on! If it's snowy, well, I'm really freezing!

  • GIRLS SOCCER: Lady Knights...

    The Marion County Lady Knights defeated the Fort Knox Lady Eagles 4-0 on Oct. 3 to record their third win of the season.
    "It was a good confidence boost," Lady Knights Head Coach Daniel Johnson said. "It was good for my players to see they actually improved instead of me telling them in practice how much they have improved."

  • Woods and Waters: Number of...

    One question asked by fish and wildlife agencies is, “Why is the number of young hunters decreasing?”
    That seems to require a very involved answer. No place to hunt, no transportation, no mentor type to take them and, according to some kids, it’s boring - just to name a few reasons.
    I can understand most of them. Unless you own land, are related to someone who’ll let you hunt or have landowning friends who’ll let you hunt, you’re pretty much out of luck.

  • Vaught’s Views: Kentucky coach...

    By Larry Vaught

    Having his son on the team could guarantee that Kentucky coach John Calipari will be at Kentucky the next four or five years. Or at least that is what Calipari recently told ESPN.
    Brad Calipari is a freshman walk-on at UK and is excited about the opportunity to be part of the program he has become so enamored with since his father left Memphis for Lexington in 2009.
    However, he has no idea what this year will be like basketball-wise.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Knights knock...

    Lady Knights Head Coach David Hibbard said his team had been working to perform when the pressure was on. Perhaps that work paid off, as the Lady Knights won two straight close sets to defeat the Thomas Nelson Generals, 25-16, 25-23, 26-24, at the Roby Dome on Oct. 3.
    "This was one of the most consistently solid performances of the season," Hibbard said. "We played at the same level for three straight sets, which is something we have been working very hard to do. Our offense clicked very well with us," Hibbard said.

  • Hardin sisters dominate Bourbon...

    Madison, left, and Morgan Hardin ran in the Bourbon Festival Spirit 5K held in Bardstown, Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016 and won top honors. Madison, 13, an eighth grader at Lebanon Middle School, won first place overall female. Morgan, 10, a fifth grader at Calvary Elementary, won first place female age 18 and under. They are the daughters of Michelle Cash of Lebanon and the late John Hardin. Their grandmother is Wanda Perkins of Lebanon.

  • Father, son duo complete...

    Gary Wilkerson and his 10-year-old son, Cade, ran the Pokey Pig 5K and decided to add the firefighter challenge to the race, which means they ran the race in full turnout out gear. “Lebanon's next recruit in training,” Gary said.

  • Lady Knights win again

    The Marion County Lady Knights have now won more games this season than they did in the previous two seasons combined.
    A 2-1 win against the Breckinridge County Lady Tigers (2-12) gave the Lady Knights (2-11-1) their second win of the season.
    "It was good to get another win," Lady Knights Head Coach Daniel Johnson said. "We did many things well on offense and we were able to put people in different positions and played well."
