  • Role model

    At three hours or more a day, gymnastics practice is quite the investment.

    So far that investment has paid a handsome sum for Marion County High School junior Taura Miles.

    Miles is a gymnast who trains at Fit Kids in Bardstown with owner Vicki Smith and her staff. Miles has been training since she was seven. She's now 16.

    Smith is no stranger to gymnastics, having owned Fit Kids for 28 years and having extensive experience as a coach. So when Smith speaks about gymnastics, you tend to listen.

  • January woes continue

    Someone needs to check the temperature inside the Roby Dome because it seems much colder than usual.

    The Marion County High School boy's basketball team has gone cold from the field, extending their losing streak to seven games. They are winless in the month of January. In the last two January's, they are 0-13. The Knights have two more chances to claim a win in January (Nelson County, Elizabethtown).

  • Lady Knights knock off CAL

    They're number one. And they've earned it.

  • Lady Knights prepare for Hart...

    Monday night the Lady Knights head into a region battle at the site of this year's Fifth Region tournament, a place they plan to get really acquainted with come March.

    Tip off is set for 5:30 p.m. when the Lady Knights visit Hart County (13-7) on Monday.

    "They'll run up and down," Lady Knights Head Coach Trent Milby said. "They're not as fast as we are but they can shoot the basketball. That's where the region tournament is at and we want to get a good feeling for the gym. We hope to play well, it's always a tough place to play."

  • We got spirit

    Marion County High School's cheerleading squad competed at the Fifth Region KAPOS region competition Sunday at Central Hardin High School.

    The squad finished third in their division.

  • Fish and wildlife department...

    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.
