  • Duck Dynasty, coyote hunt and a...

    I thought I wouldn’t be writing again before Christmas but then I got the message, “early deadline.”

    So I turned in one article for Monday, and now I’m writing for a Friday turn in! What happens in four days? Well, to be honest, not much!

    I did see where Phil Robertson, the daddy of Duck Dynasty, was being dropped for his response to a question he was asked.

  • All for one and done?

    By Will Phillips

    Because I’m the world’s worst sports fan, and also a part time masochist, I often ask myself, “What’s the worst thing about college sports?” 

    Is it the disregard for education in favor of athletics? Is it the commercialization of student athletes? Is it the bureaucratic show that is the BCS Bowl season? 

  • Marion County sweeps contests...

    Tensions were high as the Marion County Knights and Lady Knights opened district play by hosting the Adair County Indians and Lady Indians. Both the Knights (3-1) and Lady Knights (2-0) would taste victory after defeating their opponents 59-49 and 70-63, respectively.

    Both wins were hard earned. 

  • Epps scores eight day after wreck

    Former Lady Knight Makayla Epps was involved in an automobile accident Saturday evening on the Bluegrass Parkway, but that didn’t stop her from scoring eight points and grabbing three rebounds in the Kentucky women’s basketball win over East Tennessee State on Sunday.

    “Somebody ran into me. But, I’m here and that’s the best thing. Nothing terrible happened. I’m here and I got the opportunity to play,” Epps said in postgame comments posted on the UK women’s basketball website.

  • Soccer a net gain for Tom

    Marion County has a tradition of producing great athletes, but as parents and coaches know, once they have shaped their young, it’s time to let them fly. Such is almost always the case when they graduate from high school.

    Sabrina Tom is the daughter of Dr. Todd and Fazilah Tom and a former MCHS soccer player. After she graduated in 2010, she began her college athletic career. 

  • Marion County teams lose two

    Both the Marion County Knights and Lady Knights tasted defeat on the road over the weekend.

    On Dec. 14, the Lady Knights (2-1) were hosted by the Pleasure Ridge Park Lady Panthers (3-0) in the Dixie Highway Shootout. Unfortunately, the Lady Knights were overcome by the Lady Panthers, 60-54.

  • Getting the lead out

    It seems like we’ve reached another level in our downward spiral!

    As of Dec. 5, the Doe Run Company closed its doors, permanently.

    So what’s the big deal about one company closing up operations? Normally I’d say “What’s new,” it seems to be happening all the time.
