    Chad Spalding is stepping down as the head golf coach at Marion County High School.
    In an email sent to The Lebanon Enterprise, Spalding said he was stepping down in order to allow someone with more of a passion for the game to take over and lead the program.
    "I have coached many sports at MCHS over the last 20 years and I feel it's just time to move on to the next endeavor in life," Spalding said.

  • Woods and Waters: Catching the...

    At our last Mid-Kentucky Bass Anglers Tournament on Lake Cumberland I watched John catch the same five pounder twice.
    The first time it was evident he had a good fish from the excitement in his voice as he yelled, "Get the net!" Course he always yells "Get the net" no matter the size of the bass but this time it was enough to make me actually move a little.
    After we got the bass in the boat and took pictures, we put it in the live well and juiced it up with some "please release me" treatment.

    Linebacker Kash Daniel knew playing football at Kentucky and in the Southeastern Conference would be a big adjustment. What the former Paintsville High School star did not know was just how big it would be.

  • Tee Time: Oakmont to present...

    By Dennis George

    Each of golf’s majors is unique in its own way.
    The Masters is the only one of the four played at the same venue each year.
    Golfers participating in The Open Championship must be able to maneuver their ball around the nuances of links golf.
    The PGA can boast that it is has the toughest field and they allow the players to make birdies instead of trying to have a winning score over par.
    And, then there is the US Open.

    Campbellsville High School is hoping the previous success of its latest head girls’ basketball coaching hire will rub off on the Lady Eagles’ program.
    Anthony Epps, who played on a boys’ state championship team at Marion County in 1993, on the University of Kentucky national-championship squad of 1996 and was an assistant on Marion County’s undefeated Lady Knight state title team of 2013, was officially hired as CHS’ new girls’ head coach last week.

  • Just do good

    By Gerard Flanagan

    "The time is always ripe to do something right" is a quote I heard once. I can't recall where I heard that quote from, but it's always stuck with me because of its power and truth. It doesn't matter where you are, what you're doing, or who you are. There's never a bad time to do something right and good. After all, is there ever a good time to do something bad?  

  • Woods and Waters: 4-H Camp is...

    I got to spend all of last week at 4-H Camp on Lake Cumberland. To say everyone had a good time would be an understatement. The kids were kids and did a lot of singing, dancing, high and low ropes, dancing, archery, kayaking, dancing, fishing, spelunking, dancing and a bunch of other activities. Did I mention dancing?

  • Pink Out!

    Marion County High School’s softball team hosted a Pink Out Game, and all proceeds from t-shirt sales and concessions were donated to the Marion County Good Samaritans Foundation.
