  • GIRLS SOCCER: Lady Knights...

    The Marion County Lady Knights' season ended on Oct. 12 with a 3-0 loss against the Taylor County Cardinals in the opening round of the district tournament.
    "We weren't able to generate anything offensively. Credit to Taylor County's defense," Lady Knights Head Coach Daniel Johnson said.

  • Woods and Waters: Be ready for...

    I know this is a week early, but you might need the extra time to change your plans. As you know, Oct. 31 is Halloween. And, it’s customary to dress up. Now you can dress up as a pirate, or cowboy, or maybe even an action figure. But, no matter how strong the urge, don’t dress up as a clown! This year, clowns aren’t one of the “in” things to be dressed as. Besides, you could be harmed.

  • 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...

    "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.
