  • The other side of sports

    As a fan of sports, I find myself scouring the Internet looking at reports and stories about sports I am not familiar with. While doing this lately, I ran across a story that caught my attention. I am almost embarrassed to admit that I was unaware of this, but I was until I did a little investigating.

    In their second holiday tournament of 2012, the Marion County High School Lady Knights basketball team traveled to Mount Sterling in Montgomery County to take part in the Gateway Holiday Classic at Montgomery County High School. After playing in three games over three days, the Lady Knights came away victorious in each of their contests and brought home the championship trophy from the tournament.

    Recently, the Marion County High School Knights basketball team competed in the Campbellsville University Holiday Classic at Campbellsville High School.

    The teams battled early as neither team led by more than two points for the first five and half minutes of the game. Late in the first period, the Knights put together 6-2 spurt to grab an 18-12 lead as the first quarter closed out.

  • Change of plans

    So, I had my column planned all week long. Josh and I thought it would be fun on Friday night, since there were no basketball games, to take Karli bowling for the first time. My friend from Georgetown had come down to the house to babysit Karli on Friday since her regular sitter was on a trip. She agreed that a bowling trip would be exciting. I love to bowl, so I was looking forward to it and I wanted to see how 3-year-old Karli would feel about the bowling alley.

  • Mother Nature provides some...

    It’s nice to be back on a regular schedule. First, was the early deadline for Christmas, which I missed! Then, there was the early deadline for New Year’s, which I barely made! Now, it’s normal again, at least until Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday!
