    This may be a really strange column topic, which is perfectly okay, because it’s about food, and who doesn’t love food?

  • No outdoors column this week

    Outdoors columnist Shelton Young was not able to prepare a column for this week’s edition. Young broke his arm and was unable to write a full piece.
    He did want to remind everyone that the Woodlawn Baptist Church Invitational fishing tournament will be May 16. This year’s event will be on Sportsman’s Lake.

  • Dragon Dash 5K is Saturday, May 9

    Calvary Elementary is hosting the Dragon Dash 5K to raise money for the Jump Rope for Heart, which supports the American Heart Association.

  • Off and running

    A working-violinist-band member-sprinter is what you could call her. Junior Meredith Bartley at Marion County High School runs cross country in the fall, track in the spring, and somehow has time to work at Cedars of Lebanon, go to violin practice, and play the vibes in band.
    Bartley has been a runner since the seventh grade when she chose to join the track team.

  • BASEBALL: Knights lose, play for...

    After another week of wet, rainy weather, the skies cleared up Friday and Saturday for the Saving Second Base invitational at Marion County High School.
    The weekend was a tough one on the field for the host team, the Marion County Knights, who fell to 3-13 on the season after suffering three losses in two days.
    Regardless of the outcome on the field, the Knights and the other teams in the invitational were playing for a bigger cause, as evidenced by pink bases and bats as well as pink touches on the team’s uniforms.

    This past week, the weather has been really tough for outdoors sport. Luckily the Marion County Lady Knights softball team (14-4) got a chance to play Friday at Bethlehem.
    Marion County grabbed a win 8-5.
    The Lady Knights held a lead early, but they added six runs in the sixth inning to secure the win.
