  • Little League Life - Baseball is...

    The Mattingly family has a special passion for the game of baseball.

    The countless hours spent at the park, the miles and miles spent behind the wheel, and the endless planning to squeeze in all of those practices and games can be stressful, but they love it anyway.

    John and Martha Ann Mattingly have five children, and four of them have competed in the Little League program in Marion County in some way.

  • Baseball players earn awards

  • Amateur golf tour plays at...

    Thursday the Kentucky Senior Amateur Golf Tour came to the Rosewood Golf Club to hold their tournament. The 19 golfers who participated in the tournament, were divided into four flights based on their handicaps. The top flight contained only one golfer, Jim Rollins from Louisville, who shot a 78. 

  • Passing of a Legend

    I was saddened and shocked at the same time when I learned of the unexpected death of Joe Bell recently. I had gotten to know Bell through numerous past experiences and was proud to consider him a friend. Bell coached me at different levels of baseball throughout my youth, and I always enjoyed those times. I thought that I could pay tribute to Bell through my experiences with him. I'm going to take each letter of Bell's name, and write a short memoir of what he will be remembered for.

    J - Jolly.
