  • Making moves

    The Golden State Warriors won their second title in three years last month. With all the confetti swept and all the celebrations complete, now comes the wildest and most interesting period of time in the NBA outside of the regular and postseason: free agency. Over the next several weeks and months, players will leave behind fan bases that cheered them on so loyally, deals will be made that might just give a team a missing piece needed to make a run at the NBA title and moves made will set the stage for next season, which is roughly only four months away.

  • BASEBALL: Pioneers end Marion...

    The Knights were on the journey of a lifetime. 
    This squad, achieving so much in a season of historical proportions, found themselves on the edge of a state title game berth. One game away from a chance to do it all and achieve the sweetest of them all. 
    Marion County, oh so close to the championship game, couldn't overcome Simon Kenton's three-run sixth inning in a 5-2 loss to the Pioneers in the first semifinal game in the Whitaker Bank/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament on Friday.
