    The Knights and Eagles had originally been scheduled to meet on Jan. 20, but poor weather forced the game to be postponed for a later date. Bethlehem is 8-13 this season, suffering a heartbreaking 54-52 loss to Green County on Saturday.

  • Reflecting back, looking ahead

    What are some of the greatest memories you’ve ever made? Getting married, having children, starting your own business? We’ve all made memories, had moments of pure elation and joy and have smiled like we’ve never smiled before. It is completely normal for us to have nostalgia over fond memories. It’s good we have made those memories and remember them.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    Four more games remain for the Marion County Lady Knights and roughly a week and a half is left before the 20th District Tournament begins at Campbellsville High School.
    In their final game on the road for the regular season, Marion County will travel to Danville to take on the Boyle County Lady Rebels at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 9.
    The Lady Rebels won’t make it easy on Marion County, holding a 16-6 record before taking on Southwestern last night. Boyle County put the brakes on a three-game skid back on Feb. 2 with a 57-44 win over Danville on Feb. 2.

  • Vaughts’ Views: Olympic...

    By Larry Vaught

    Kelsey LaCroix thought about what it would be like to participate in the Olympics when she was a young gymnast.
    She assumed any chance to participating in the Olympics ended when she made the decision to stick with cheerleading over gymnastics at age 11.
    That decision worked out well, though, as she recently helped Kentucky win a third straight national cheer title. But now she’s going to the Olympics — along with other member of UK’s national cheerleading team.
