  • Nice, cold weather, but not...

    It’s been cold, real cold! When it’s this cold the inclination is to hunker down and avoid “being out in it” as much as possible.
    You know who complains the most? Not those who have to be out in it for extended time. It’s those whose exposure is limited to that distance between their vehicle and a building. This is usually around 50 yards and three minutes of “exposure time.”

  • YEAR IN REVIEW: Top Sports...

    The biggest stories don't always have happy endings, and sometimes they transcend the sports pages.
    Marion County had a lot to celebrate in 2014. The Lady Knights claimed more district titles in basketball and volleyball, and the Knights tennis team had a year to remember on the court.
    Individual players reached career milestones and turned in spectacular single-game performances.
    Unfortunately, Marion County lost one of its sideline generals to a difficult disease.
    Here are the biggest sports stories of the past year.

  • Marion County sweeps C'ville

    The New Year started off great for Marion County, with both the Knights and Lady Knights winning over Campbellsville on Jan. 2.
    The Lady Knights (6-5) played the Lady Eagles (5-9) first, and won, 58-24.
    “It was a good district win for our team,” Head Coach Anthony Epps said. “I really liked the effort and energy our team played with. It was our third win in a row. Hopefully, we can keep the momentum going in the New Year.”

  • Teaching, learning about hunting...

    Finally, after scouting for days, heck weeks, I found a field that a small flock of Canada geese were using (feeding in). One field, one flock. That's it!
    Anyway, Tate, my 11-year-old grandson, was coming over from Adair County, and we figured on giving the geese a try. I'd previously tweaked his interest by having him "watch" the geese, so he was hyped at an opportunity to shoot one.

  • Winter sports

    No one is really fond of winter, but one thing to be excited about is the sports that come with it. What I mean by that is, there’s always an athletic event on TV, such as football, basketball, swimming or the Winter X-Games.
