  • 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.

  • Knights slay Dragons on the...

    The Marion County Knights had a successful week of play, improving to 6-3.

    Marion County defeated Green County, 9-2, on April 9, then split a double-header with the host Fern Creek Tigers (8-7) on April 12. The Knights took an 8-7 victory and a 9-5 loss against the Tigers.

  • Marion County takes fourth at...

    Last week was a mixed bag of results for the Marion County track team. 

    Through brief bouts of cool wind and cold rain, the team emerged with top marks from the Danville All-Comers Meet on April 8.

    Unfortunately, results were not as upbeat in the Central Hardin Invitational on April 11, though several girls performed very well. 

    Marion County placed 12th in the Central Hardin Invitational, and fourth in the Danville All-Comers. 

  • Marion County softball wins two

    After a stunning win against the Danville Lady Admirals, the Marion County Lady Knights went on to fall in two games in the Jaguar Classic. 

    The defeats dropped the Lady Knights’ record to 5-4 when they lost to the Ryle Lady Raiders, 6-3, and the Madison Southern Lady Eagles, 4-2, on April 12.

  • Still time to get a turkey this...

     Guess I can brag on my grandson a little. Troy’s son, 6-year-old Silas, took a mature bird during Sunday of the youth season.

    He took his mature gobbler at 25 yards and it scored 64.5, 22 pounds, 10-inch beard, 1 1/8-inch spurs.

    Course Miller, Toby’s son who’s 15, took a gobbler and a coyote while hunting Saturday.

    Don’t know who was more excited, my kids or their kids!

  • What a riot!

     I could take this time to complain about a lot of things. I have not had the best few weeks of my life, and it seems like nothing has gone right. My car broke down, for good, I made a few errors last week, I have been broke and just plain crabby. 

    But, my problems are miniscule compared to the real problems going on in the world right now.
