Today's Sports

  • Curling is cool

    Our bodies are miraculous machines. To think, though we are fragile creatures, our complex structures make us capable of so much.
    This year’s Winter Olympics are a prime example of what the human body can or cannot do.
    As I watched the athletes cut through the snow like a blade through white fluff, or glide across the ice like a jet aircraft, I was reminded that while we are capable of some pretty ugly deeds, we are also capable of some beautiful ones too.

  • Still time to sign-up for...

    Experience Turtleman, Ernie Brown Jr. of Animal Planet’s “Call of the Wildman”, in his hometown following the first annual Turtleman Trek 5K. This timed footrace will take you by several of the official Turtleman Trek locations, sites where episodes of “Call of the Wildman” were filmed.  

  • What’s good for the goose hunter

    First, I need to tell you all about the Delta Waterfowl Banquet coming up at 5 p.m. Saturday. in Floral Hall at the Marion County Fairgrounds. The meal will be at 6:30 p.m., which will give you plenty of time to play the games, buy some raffle tickets and bid on some items.
    You’ll also meet some outstanding guys and maybe hear some interesting stories, some of which might be true. Ya don’t think the only tall tales are told by anglers do ya?

  • Basketball games rescheduled for...

    The high school basketball games scheduled for tonight, Feb. 14, between North Hardin and Marion County have been postponed.

    Hardin County schools are not letting their buses out this evening because of the anticipated weather, according to Marion County Athletics Director Robby Peterson.

    However, those games have been rescheduled for Sunday afternoon.

    The girls will play at 3 p.m., and the boys game will start after the girls' game.

    Whether she’s making points, setting up teammates to score, or just making it look easy, Marion County Lady Knight Haeli Howard does it all.

    The 14-year-old, 5-foot-4-inch tall freshman point guard got her start playing with the Lady Knights three years ago when she was in the sixth grade.

    With another win notched in their belt, the Marion County Lady Knights opened their second double-header of the week on Feb. 8. For the second time this season, the Lady Knights defeated their opponent, the Washington County Commanderettes, 54-28.

    Later that night, Marion County’s boys team picked up its fifth consecutive win by defeating the Commanders (2-16) by 37 points.

    The Marion County Lady Knights were in action against the Taylor County Lady Cardinals Friday night in the Roby Dome.

    It was a low-scoring affair from the opening tip. The first score came nearly two minutes into the game on a free throw by Taylor County junior guard Haley Wright. 

  • Almost in Olympic spirits

     Industrialization. Empty shells of buildings. Soot. What am I talking about, you ask? The slums of Cleveland? War-torn Bosnia? 

    No, silly. I’m talking about the Winter Games and their host city, Sochi. 

  • Sore shoulders are just part of...

     After I whined about the recent early deadlines I had over the holidays, I’m now enduring a self-imposed early deadline, turn in Saturday instead of Sunday.

    This one I can live with cause it involves leaving on a snow goose hunting trip. Terry, Billy, Ryan and I are heading to Arkansas to take part in their Light Goose Conservation Order Season.
