    It was a day of firsts, including ice fishing in reverse?

    "I've ice-fished taking 'em out, but I've never ice-fished putting 'em in," cracked Raymond Atchison, a veteran Department of Fish and Wildlife employee.

    Atchison and his partner, Josh Mangan, were on their maiden fish-stocking effort of 2010. It was one week ago.

  • Carrico makes history

    Excellence in multiple sports would have left a legacy behind for Tommy Carrico. He just sealed the deal when he inked a golf scholarship with Morehead State University recently.

    Carrico is the first Marion County High School golfer to receive a scholarship from a Division I school directly out of high school, according to boy's golf Head Coach Freddie Leathers. Beverly Brockman received a Division I scholarship but she was one year removed from Marion County when she did so.

  • Inside the Mind of Trent Milby

    Trent Milby is the head coach for the MCHS girls basketball team. His record at Marion County is 90-22.

    Briefly go through your background as a player.

    I played four years at Green County High School. I played the guard spot, mostly at the two and three position. I was primarily a spot up shooter. My senior year (1993) we went 25-7. Too bad we played when Marion County was loaded. The 1993 team has the most wins in school history.
