  • Another pole vault state champ

    Last Saturday, the middle school members of the Marion County track team headed to the University of Louisville to compete in the 2013 KTCCCA Middle School State Championship track meet.  Overall, five athletes from Marion County competed in the meet. Laurel Brahm, Ty Divine, Dalton Riggs, Talena Brown, and Dylan Bradshaw each competed in their respective events.
    Bradshaw was the highlight of the meet for Marion County. Just like his mentor, Brooks Divine, did last week, Bradshaw captured the state title in pole vault.

  • Postseason on the diamond

    Well, as you are reading this column, the 5th Region softball tournament is already underway. The Marion County Lady Knights were scheduled to play on Monday in the tournament, but as I am typing this, due to an early deadline, I do not know their opponent or time of the game yet. However, I do know the tournament will be held in Nelson County.

  • Squirrel, frog seasons are...

    In my last article I mentioned that we were sort of “between” gunning seasons. So, I suggested you try coyote hunting to ease the pain of not shooting!
    Since the article came out I was reminded of a couple of other opportunities to hunt!
    First, we have an early squirrel season we can take advantage of. It runs from May 18 until June 21 with a daily limit of six and possession limit of 12.
