  • Reminiscing about Sidewalk Sales...

    Our annual Marion County Ham Days Open Bass Tournament, sponsored by the Mid-Kentucky Bass Anglers – was again a huge success. We had 11 boats with 19 anglers participating this year. Weather was perfect, maybe a little windy at times, but good temperatures.
    Bass were scattered and in their fall pattern. (“Fall pattern” – sounded good even if I don’t know what that means!)

    Marion County High School volleyball has some big shoes to fill in the wake of its 2014 district title.
    “After losing 12 seniors from last year’s team, I’m not sure yet how we are going to look,” Coach David Hibbard said.

    Coach Derek Cissell has made some serious changes to the Marion County girls soccer team.
    After a less than impressive season last year, Cissell has looked to the middle schools for players and has nearly tripled his previous roster.
    “We’re really young and inexperienced, but we’re really coming together as a team,” Cissell said.

    Writing is my life. It’s my passion. It’s my future. It’s full of adventure.
    When the publisher of The Lebanon Enterprise sent me an email asking if I was interested in a part-time position, I knew a great adventure was in store.
    Now I have the pleasure of introducing myself as the Enterprise’s newest sports correspondent, and I couldn’t be more excited.

  • Two Lady Knights teams get new...

    Both are familiar faces on the sidelines, and both will be taking on new roles during upcoming seasons.
    Landon Williams has been named the new Marion County High School girls basketball coach, and Jonathan Spalding will be the new Lady Knights softball coach.
    For the past few years, Williams has coached tennis at the high school since 2012, and he’s been the freshmen boys basketball coach for the past two years.
    “He’s won back-to-back district titles at the freshmen level,” Principal Mike Abell said.

  • New shooting season begins in...

    Those of us who’ve just gotta shoot something don’t have much longer to wait!
    Coming up on Aug. 15, we have the opening of our squirrel season, cobwebs in the face, leaves everywhere and hot. But it’s an opportunity to wake up early and get out in the woods.
    Dove isn’t the only season opening on Sept. 1. On that date, you can take advantage of the opening of crow season. While crow isn’t the best tasting meat — and yes, I’ve “eaten crow” — it won’t kill you.

  • Golf: Amateur series available...

    There is the Kentucky PGA Junior Tour and the Mussellman-Dunne tour available for junior golfers to play.
    Then there is the state amateur and the Kentucky Open for those select few golfers who can compete at a high level.
    And the Kentucky Golf Association schedules tournaments during the week for the old geezers, many of whom are retired.
    But what about the hard working amateurs who work during the week and still want to play some competitive golf on some of the best courses in the state?
    Until now, they have been shut out.
