  • Let's talk lures

    Last week, I lost a good friend and former co-worker. While Chief Joe Bell will be remembered for many things, I have a picture in my mind that sums up how I'll always remember him.

    My image is of a Ford pickup truck... Lord knows it had to be a Ford! Filling the bed of the truck and hanging out every window is a Little League baseball player. His team... someone else's team... didn't matter!

  • Political opponents play ball...

    A political battle played out in a place that you normally wouldn’t expect.
    The Democratic Executive Committee officially challenged the Republicans to a softball game in Bradfordsville on a Sunday no less.
    “This was a way to see politics in a different aspect,” event organizer Theresa Rakes.
    The Democratic Executive Committee held a meeting and the idea to do something for the community came up. Rakes had the idea of playing a softball game and having people bring donations to help The Caring Place of Lebanon.

  • Epps lasts until final cut

    Sophomore standout Makayla Epps was invited to attend the tryout for the under 16 USA national women’s basketball team recently. Those tryouts were held in Colorado Springs, Colo., during the last week of May, and Epps made it through until the final cut.  
    Originally, 120 prospective team members were attempting to make the team. As each day progressed, a portion of those players were cut. Epps’ performance allowed her to remain in the hunt until the final cut in which there were 35 remaining players hoping for a spot on the team.

  • Epps, Goodin-Rogers commit to U...

    Makayla Epps and Kyvin Goodin-Rogers, both Marion County Lady Knights sophomore standout basketball players, verbally committed to the University of Louisville last week. University of Louisville Head Coach Jeff Walz has been recruiting both Epps and Goodin-Rogers heavily for quite a while, and finally has landed the two stars. Both players are considered to be two of the top recruits in the 2013 national class, and have each made the Courier-Journal’s all state team twice, while having played high school basketball for four years.
