  • Geese galore and more

    Snow geese by the thousands… maybe millions… awaited us in Arkansas. So many snow geese that a special “conservation order” season has been set in an attempt to control their numbers.
    No license required, just a number from the state of Arkansas. No plug in your gun to allow only a certain number of shells. Matter of fact, you can use a “tube extension” to allow the use of not three, but up to 10 total shells.
    And the biggest kicker: No limit on the number of birds you can take!

  • Super TV ad

    First of all, I must make a confession. I only caught bits and pieces of the Super Bowl recently. I did not sit and watch the entire game. That may be a bit of a surprise to some of you, but I was busy working on the next edition of the paper during that time slot. Because of that, I missed nearly all of the Super Bowl commercials.

  • Knights fall to Hawks, Bulldogs

    The Marion County Knights varsity basketball team had their last game of the regular season Friday night at home against LaRue County. It was also senior night. In a game where the Knights stayed within striking distance all night long, LaRue County’s star player, Kelton Ford, poured in a career-high 39 points to lead the Hawks to a 68-60 victory. The Knights finished the regular season with a record of 11-16.

    The Marion County Lady Knights went on the road Feb. 12 to take on Mercy Academy in their last regular season game. After winning their previous 29 games, Marion County had little trouble in capping off an impressive 30-0 undefeated regular season. Patrice Tonge led the way with a career-high 22 points in the 64-46 win.
    “We played a really good game,” Head Coach Trent Milby said. “We were really focused on the game and went to a tough place to win, and won.”

  • Triple Threat

    Three Marion County Lady Knights have received invitations recently to try out for the Kentucky squad in the annual Kentucky/Indiana all-star game sponsored by the Lions Eye Foundation. The tryouts will be held on March 23-24 at Georgetown College.  
    Last season, Marion County’s Bre Elder played in the game. This year, the game will once again be played in Freedom Hall on June 14, and will travel to the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis the following night.

  • Lovin’ it: MCHS’ Epps a McD’s...

    Makayla Epps has made history in Marion County again.
    Epps was recently chosen to play on the most prestigious and highly recognized high school all-star game in the country, the McDonald’s All-American game. No other athlete in Marion County history has ever been chosen as a member of this elite team.
    Epps is currently averaging 23.3 points per game, 4.2 steals per game, and 4.5 assists per game, all while her team has just finished a perfect 30-0 regular season.
