    Just as a reminder, you need to get your 2015 hunting and fishing licenses if you haven’t already done so!
    By far, the best deal out there is the Sportsman’s License. This license includes just about everything. About all you’ll need “extra” is your federal duck stamp.

    The Aquaknights competed in the regional swim meet Feb. 13-14 at Woodford County. While no Marion County swimmers qualified for this year’s state meet, Coach Katie Kelien was pleased with her team’s effort.
    “We could have had some faster times being that it was regionals, however I am beyond proud of what they have accomplished this year as a team, especially in a transition season,” Kelien wrote in an email. “We had solid times, and were very competitive against teams in our region.”

  • So-so seasons

    Everyone wants a winning season of course, because who likes losing? No one. However, sports teams get caught in just a "so-so season," where it's not great but it's not terrible.

  • I’m a bad weather wuss

    I know you can ‘burn out’ the barrel of a rifle by shooting a substantial number of hot loads through it. But, I wonder if it’s possible to do the same thing by cleaning it too much.
    The reason I ask is that all I’ve been able to do with my predator rifles for the last couple of weeks is clean them. Not from shooting them a lot, but out of sheer boredom! Right now I’d put my guns up against one just coming off some companies assembly benches!

  • Knights pick up win over Thomas...

    Senior guard Anton Cowherd scored 24 points, 10 rebounds and seven steals to lead the Marion County Knights to a 36-point victory over the Thomas Nelson Generals on Saturday night.

    Anthony Tonge and Jalen Powell added 10 points apiece in the 80-44 Marion County victory. Tonge and Isaac Lanham each grabbed eight rebounds.

    Ten Knights (14-10) scored in the win.

  • Short-handed Lady Knights drop...

    Last week was a rough one for the Marion County Lady Knights. Playing short-handed throughout the week, the Lady Knights lost all three of their games.

    “It is all day to day with our players being out,” Marion County Coach Anthony Epps wrote in an email. “We will not rush anyone back unless we deem them physically ready to play. The players health is more important at this moment.”
