  • The love of it

    A study conducted by Gallup across 140 countries in 2011 and 2012 found that only 13 percent of people are "actively engaged" in their jobs. In contrast, 63 percent of respondents said they were "not engaged" in their jobs. However, the way people describe their views of their work gets worse in the survey. Perhaps most concerning is that 24 percent of those surveyed reported they were "actively disengaged" in their jobs.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    The Lady Knights built a 22-point lead going into halftime against the Central Hardin Lady Bruins on Jan. 16.

    Haeli Howard had 31 points while Elise Carpenter and Katie Mattingly each had 11 as Marion County hung on for their third straight win against the Central Hardin Lady Bruins 67-59, and survived a sluggish third quarter where Marion County was outscored 21-8.

The loss to Adair County knocked the Knights out of contention for the No. 1 seed and the loss Friday night to Taylor County dealt another blow to the Knights' chances for the No. 2 seed.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Commanderettes...

    It's been a rough season for the Washington County Commanderettes.

  • SWIMMING: Adjustments on tap for...

    When the Marion County Aquaknights hit the pool for their final regular season meet at Shelby County on Jan. 28, expect things to be a little different.
    "We will be adjusting some things as far as organization of relays and trying swimmers in other strokes to tinker with before regions in Russell County," Aquaknights Head Coach Katie Johnson said.
    Thus far, the Aquaknights have performed well and have given it their all, according to Johnson.

    By Larry Vaught

    Kentucky signee P.J. Washington will be in western Kentucky to play games Feb. 17-18 as part of The Grind Session at Marshall County High School.
    Findlay Prep (Henderson, Nevada) was not originally scheduled to play in Kentucky this year. However, when the offer to play two games in Kentucky came, Findlay Prep coach Paul Washington knew it was too good an opportunity to decline.

    No Lez Means? No problem for the Knights.

  • Denied

    For 35 years, the Clemson Tigers sought to once more taste it. For 35 years, the Clemson Tigers watched 16 other teams taste it. Last year, the Tiger's quest for it nearly ended at the University of Phoenix Stadium, but the Alabama Crimson Tide denied the Tigers. This year's duel had both teams singing a different tune.

  • Lady Knights come up short

    Forty seconds into the final quarter, Haeli Howard squared up and drained a three to tie the game against the Lincoln County Lady Patriots at 51 on Monday, Jan. 9.
    It's as close as Marion County would get after that, as the Lady Patriots staved off a Lady Knights comeback to win 71-60 at the Roby Dome.
    "I think we played a little timid in the first half of the game," Lady Knights Head Coach Kenny Mills said, "but I thought, coming out in the third quarter, our defense picked up."
