    As of Monday, Marion County’s 11-year-old baseball all stars were still trying to complete the 5th District tournament at South Hardin Little League in Elizabethtown.
    Marion County was originally scheduled to play July 3 against Campbellsville in the championship round of the tournament.
    Because of rain earlier in the week, the entire tournament was pushed back a day. And because the rainfall persisted throughout the week, the game had been pushed back until Monday evening.

  • Going wrong

    Every golfer at some point has hit an errant shot off the tee, looked quizzically at his playing partners with arms out, and asked, “What did I do wrong?”
    Where did you learn to play the game?
    Who has influenced you?
    Who do you turn to help you with your problems?
    For most of us growing up in central Kentucky, formal lessons with a professional was not a consideration and we were pretty much self taught or turned to our friends for assistance.

  • Wet week could affect fishing...

    This 4th of July can be summed up in one word, wet!
    Sorta ruined everyone’s long weekend. Course I’m talking about some cookins’, some parties and some lake time.
    What it didn’t ruin was the reason July 4th isn’t just another date on the calendar. If ya don’t know what I’m talkin’ about, shame on you!

    With a solid week of rain we’re likely to see our lake levels on the rise. What does this mean to anglers?

  • Harness racing at the fair
  • High school volleyball tryouts...
