  • Fishing season is just around...

    Your 2011 Kentucky Hunting/Fishing License expired at midnight on Wednesday, Feb. 29. So, time to renew!
    The Ky. Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources is primarily funded by your hunting/fishing license fees, permits you purchase and some money from taxes you pay on hunting and fishing equipment.
    No general tax money goes to the KDFWR. So, in truth, as outdoorsmen and women, we pay our own way.
    I take a certain amount of pride in that!

  • A look back

    Now that the regular seasons are complete for the Marion County High School Knights and Lady Knights, I thought it would be a good time to look back at how they did throughout the year.
    The Knights started the season off on the right foot, winning their first four games. Two of those four wins came on the road at Nelson County and Washington County. The next game for the Knights took them to Madison Central to take on the currently seventh ranked team in the state. The Knights fell in that contest by 34 points, but had some stiff competition.
