  • Near death experience

    Well, the big game is over.
    With all the anticipation leading up to the game, I'm almost sad to see it be over. Of course, the game I am referring to was the battle of the Bluegrass between Kentucky and Louisville. As we all know, the Wildcats pulled out the eight-point victory much to the pleasure of most likely the biggest Kentucky fan I know, Bobby Joe Farmer.

  • April Fools fishin'

    Our Mid-Kentucky Bass Anglers April Fool's Day Tournament on Green River was interesting.
    At our 8 a.m. launch, the weather was a little cooler than it's been and it was overcast. As the day progressed it got just plain nasty looking.
    A dark wall cloud moved in bringing a steady wind and some small rollers. It actually got to the point that John and I found an open spot at the state dock, pulled in under a roofed slip, tied off and waited to see what was going to happen.

  • Lady Knights win 2, lose 2 on...

    The Marion County Lady Knights varsity softball team had a busy week, playing four games, all of them on the road. Marion County went 2-2 on the week, beating Bethlehem and Casey County and losing to Mercer County and Danville, taking their overall record to 5-2.

    Mercer County 5, Marion County 1
    The Lady Knights went on the road Friday night to play Mercer County, where they could only put one run on the scoreboard, losing the game 5-1.

  • Girls take third in middle...

    In the middle school meet March 26 at Green County, the girls' team scored 88 points to finish third, while the boys' team was sixth with 38 points.
    "Our girls team did a great job overall," Head Coach Keith Brown said. "We left a few points on the track due to an injury to Chelsey Wright, and a couple of blunders on not checking in on time, but overall we were right where we need to be."  
    Brown said the boys team has room for improvement.
