  • Turkeys can be hard to get

    Found everything. Got the coffee fixed and the thermos full. Some snacks in the pack and camo’d up. And, it was only 5:30 a.m.
    A short drive to a friend’s farm, the blind set up and still dead silent in the dark, and it was 6 a.m.
    Then it happened. A gobble! Birds flying down and more gobbles, it’s 7 a.m. After a few calls it sounds like the bird(s) are heading my way. A movement, a red head, my bird on the way!

  • Lady Knights claim No. 1...

    The Marion County Lady Knights softball team played three games last week, winning two and losing one. The Lady Knights have a 5-1 district standing, making them the No. 1 seed in the district. The team's overall record is now 12-4.
    "This was a tremendous milestone for our program," Coach Todd Spalding said. "To replace seven of nine starters from last season and win the first regular season district championship in school history speaks volumes about our players."
    Spalding added that he is proud of how hard his team continues to work.

  • Divine vaults to new school...

    The track teams were scheduled to go to Henry Clay to compete in the Heart of the Bluegrass meet Saturday, April 21. However, with prom scheduled for the same night, the team decided not to go.
    Brooks Divine did attend the meet, and intended on breaking some school and personal records. The previous school pole vault record was 13' 2", and Divine was able to clear an impressive 14' 2" to set a new mark.

  • Record-setting feat just Divine

    This week, I am going to use my column as a shout out to a Marion County High School athlete, one who participates in track and field. This athlete is a junior who has high expectations for himself as he competes in several events at each track meet. This athlete also wants to go to college and become a decathlete at whichever school he decides to attend in track and field. This athlete is Brooks Divine.
