  • Lady Knights reach final four in...

    In front of a packed gym, the Lady Knights’ season came to a halt when they were knocked out of the 5th Region Tournament on March 8. The Lady Knights lost to the LaRue County Lady Hawks, 65-46, in the semifinals.

    “Even though we came up short of winning the game or the regional championship this season, this was a successful season and those young ladies will always be winners,” Marion County Lady Knights Coach Anthony Epps wrote in an email. “Very, very proud of our team.”

  • Knights wrap up winning season

     An abrupt and unexpected defeat during the 20th District tournament brought an end to the Marion County Knights season last week. They fell to the Adair County Indians on a three-pointer at the horn to end the game 61-60.

  • Karate kids rise and shine

    Saturday, 9 a.m.

    As the sun rises over the knobs, children and their parents walk through the smoky glass doors of John Cox Martial Arts studio. 

    While many of their peers are sleeping in, or watching Saturday morning cartoons, the small group of pint-sized karate kids is getting ready to break a sweat and learn.

    But the lesson plan may surprise you - there’s very little, if any, fighting going on. 

  • Coyote hunting has been a...

     We had an interesting time at the Kiwanis Auction Sunday. Not only did everyone participating have a good time, we raised about $4,700 that’ll go back toward programs for our Marion County kids.

    I’d like to thank everyone who worked, bought stuff and especially those who donated items, cash and goods to make our auction a success.

    It’s merely “put on” by the Kiwanis Club. The money we raise isn’t ours, it’s the kids.

  • Color In Motion returns May 17

     The Color in Motion 5K returns to Lebanon May 17. Runners are encouraged to put on a white shirt and be ready for a good time.

    Runners and walkers will get to be part of the “moving rainbow” as it travels through Lebanon for the second time this spring.

    The first wave of the race will begin at 9 a.m. at Graham Memorial Park.

  • Tell me your stories

     What a long week! Currently, it’s Sunday and I am just about worn thin and cranky!

    But rather than use this time to mope or be angry and write about what bothers me, I think I will use it to be constructive with this week’s column.

  • Keeping up the tradition

    Through sheer adrenaline, sweat, determination, and skill, the Marion County Lady Knights took down the Adair County Lady Indians for the third time this season. The victory also marked the eighth consecutive year that the Lady Knights have secured the district title. 

    “It felt great winning the 20th District Tourney this season,” Lady Knights Coach Anthony Epps said in an email after the game. “That was one of our main goals going into this basketball season.”

  • Rough end for Knights

    It came down to one basket, one point, 1.8 seconds, and 23 feet. 

    On Feb 27, the Marion County Knights took on the Adair County Indians for the third time this season – it would be their last. 

    On paper, the Knights looked like the favorites; on the court it looked similar. Previously, the Knights (19-10) had defeated the Indians 70-63 and 70-55.

    But this time, the underdog came out on top.
