  • Volleyball: Lady Knights playing...

    By Bailey Foxworth

    The Marion County Lady Knights showed a lot of promise last week when they took on the North Hardin Lady Trojans and the Bardstown Lady Tigers in their first scrimmages of the season.
    “Our scrimmages both went well,” Coach David Hibbard said of his Lady Knights.
    Both scrimmages were timed, rather than played in the typical three-set format, so scoring was different than regular season gameplay.

  • Big weekend for fishing...

    It was about a perfect day Saturday to be fishing. While it might have been a little hot, the wind blew … of course it “always” blows … which made it tolerable.
    There were 25 boats that made the tournament, which was a big disappointment, especially considering the amount paid out! And no, there weren’t enough boats registered to cover the payout!
    But, they paid out what was advertised.

  • How do you raise a hunter?

    It all started three years ago when Tate, my then nine-year-old grandson was asked if he’d like to attend a dove shoot and watch me shoot, maybe even retrieve some doves. Tate was way more excited than I ever figured on. So, I told the guys what I wanted to do and thankfully they said it’d be alright. Besides, a lot of them started out as retrievers, too!
