    The Marion County Lady Knights ended their regular season last week when they lost to Bardstown on the road in three sets (0-3). The Lady Knights finished the regular season with a record of 13-19-1. They have not finished with a losing record since 2007.
    The loss came as a surprise to Head Coach David Hibbard.
    “I thought we got rid of this nonsense when we played in the Harrison County tournament, but I guess I was wrong,” Hibbard said.

  • Elk Hunt

    Tyler Curtis recently harvested a 5X5 Kentucky bull elk while hunting with his grandfather Keith Brock. The elk was harvested opening day of modern gun season and weighed 700 pounds. Tyler is the son of Gary and Laurie Curtis.  The elk was harvested in Knott County near Hindman. This was Curtis's first elk hunt.

  • Don't be afraid to learn

    By Gerard Flanagan

    Sports are full of learning. Learning a new scheme when a new coach comes to town. Learning how to read a defense. Learning how to shoot the basketball. Learning what a team wants to do on offense and defense.
    Life is full of learning, too. No matter what you try to do, you'll never be able to avoid learning.

  • John Boyd wins 2015 Mid-KY Bass...

    On Oct. 3-4 the Mid-KY Bass Anglers held their 2015 Classic. The weather on Saturday was anything but pleasant. Wind and rain all day made the fishing and conditions at Willisburg just a notch or so above tolerable. But, the guys braved the weather for the six-hour tournament and the big fish of the day was a 3.98 pounder caught by the team of Danny Marcum and Brad Taylor.

  • How talented are this year’s...

    What do you think of the overall talent on coach John Calipari’s Kentucky roster this year?
    That’s a question I posed recently to several media members who I believe have a good feel not only for UK basketball, but college basketball in general. And remember they have no idea about exactly what Skal Labissiere’s eligibility status is with the NCAA.
    Start with Mike Courcy, columnist for The Sporting News.

  • How do you raise a hunter?

    It all started three years ago when Tate, my then nine-year-old grandson was asked if he’d like to attend a dove shoot and watch me shoot, maybe even retrieve some doves. Tate was way more excited than I ever figured on. So, I told the guys what I wanted to do and thankfully they said it’d be alright. Besides, a lot of them started out as retrievers, too!

  • Vaught’s Views: Jamal Murray is...

    By Larry Vaught

    Others can rave about Jamal Murray all they want — and most college basketball analysts are — but the Kentucky freshman doesn’t pay attention to that or forecasts that he could be a top five pick in the 2016 NBA draft.
    “It is a lot to have that said about you, but I have not earned anything yet. I just try to stay focused and make sure this team goes where it needs to go,” said Murray.

  • Splat Out Cancer at Friday’s...

    The Marion County High School FBLA, BETA, and FCCLA organizations have joined together to Splat Out Cancer in memory of the late Marion County Football Coach Jeff Robbins. Students will be selling paint balloons at Friday’s football game for $1. Balloons may then be thrown at the Splatting Out Cancer board. After fall break, the board will be on display at MCHS.  All proceeds will be donated to cancer research in the memory of Coach Robbins.  

  • The wage gap

    By Bailey Foxworth

    In my house, Sundays are for two things: Jesus and football, and last Sunday was no exception. I went to church, then drove to my dad’s house to watch the Bengals teach the Chargers a lesson in passing completion.
    Now, I’m a huge fan of sports. I play sports; I watch sports; I plan on forcing encouraging my kids to play sports when I have them. However, I have a few grievances with sports, namely the adversity women face.
