  • Hunters on the prowl to find...

    First off, we moved the December 4-H Fishing Club meeting from the 19 to Dec. 12.
    We’re going to be making an ornament for your tree, so you’ll want to be sure to attend!

    Seems the predator hunting bug bit Terry Davis. Now we’re still going duck hunting, but have accepted one hard fact: There just aren’t that many ducks around here. At least not enough to support a bad duckaholic!
    So what does one do in the absence of ducks? Seems the answer, in addition to rabbits, squirrels, quail, would be predators. Specifically coyotes!

  • Nothing fishy: bass fishing...

    Jerry Smith spoke to the Marion County Board of Education on Nov. 12 to request permission to create a bass fishing team at Marion County High School.
    On Nov. 26, he got his answer when the board voted 4-1 in favor of adding bass fishing to the high school’s activities.
    Board member Mike Cecil cast the dissenting vote. He said he still had a lot of questions about the program, and he wasn’t sure he was ready to vote on it.
    “I hope I’m wrong on this whole issue,” Mike Cecil said.

  • Lady Knights get win in double...

    The Marion County Lady Knights narrowly defeated visiting George Rogers Clark Lady Cardinals, 52-49, in a double overtime game on Monday.
    The Lady Knights (1-0)won thanks to free throws by sophomore guard Samantha Daugherty and freshman point guard Haeli Howard in the second overtime.
    Coach Anthony Epps said that while the team missed a lot of free throws during the evening, it was because of fatigue.
    “I feel great,” Epps said. “One of the things we are emphasizing at practice is to work hard.”

  • Running with faith

    No matter wind, rain, sleet or snow, she’s always on the highway running.
    While jogging in vicious weather may seem crazy to some, tackling the elements seems perfectly natural to her.
    In fact, running in what she calls liquid sunshine, has gotten her farther than going from A to B.
    From being sponsored by Chevrolet and Coca-Cola while carrying an Olympic torch, to running numerous 5Ks, three marathons, and helping chaplain the 1996 Olympics, it is easy to say that Peggy Birmingham has racked up a lot of miles.  

  • Knight Madness

    Showing everything from athletic prowess to school spirit, Marion County High School held its Knight Madness on Nov. 26.  
    The event, which is in its third year running, was sponsored by the basketball boosters. It raised more than $500 for the Knights basketball team. According to Coach Montrelle Irvin (above), the money will go to everything from basic essentials to food and lodging for the Knights.

  • Decoys, duck hunting make for a...

    Thanksgiving was a good day! Started with our traditional breakfast, sausage, egg, cheese sandwiches.
    This has to be the best part of Thanksgiving, but don’t tell the wife! Second only to the food, at least for opening day, is the actual duck hunt, and this year it was good.
    After breakfast we headed to the Quack Shack.
    Jason and C.C., the young guys, set about putting out a small spread of decoys, to include two “swimmers.”
