  • Lady Knights Win Battle of the...

    The Marion County Lady Knights hosted the DuPont Manual Lady Crimson Saturday during the Autism Awareness Classic - a match-up featuring the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the state.
    The match-up lived up to all the hype. And the Lady Knights defeated the Lady Crimson 63-61.
    "It was a great atmosphere and a game that I'm sure people were excited to watch," Head Coach Trent Milby said. "The game could have ended with either team winning, I'm just glad it was us."

  • Duck, geese, rabbit and squirrel...

    I'll be kinda glad when this season is over! And I'm not talking about the deer, squirrel, rabbit or waterfowl seasons!
    What I mean is the holiday season. This season when my articles sneak up on me, a.k.a. early deadlines. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's and this Monday it's Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
    Anyway, unless you've been cloistered away somewhere you know that "weather wise" it sure doesn't seem like January.
