  • A little goes a long way

     With Marion County High School’s sports programs in hibernation at the moment, I am left dipping my thoughts and hands into the hidden world of athletic activities in Marion County. While I do like putting a focus on some of the lesser known activities, it means I have to work just a little bit harder. I have to approach these activities from a completely different angle than I did at the high school. 

    It also means the beat of the rhythm I have been dancing to has changed.

  • Kids Fishing Day went well,...

     First off, I’d like to apologize for “making up”, OK, outright lying, so much in my article last week!

    As I said then, “When nothing much has been happening, there’s nothing much to write about.” Given this, the only alternative is to not turn anything in, or make something up to turn in. And if I don’t turn anything in, I don’t get paid! With the way the economy is running, I don’t want to give up that check.
