  • Soap Box racing champions

     Callie Elder, right, won the Stock division, and Lawson Elder won the Super Stock division at the All-American Soap Box Derby Local Race in Owensboro. They will compete in the All-American Soap Box Derby World Championship in Akron, Ohio in July. Thomas and Raley Backhoe and Bell Machine and Fabrication provided support for the Elders. Their parents are Chad and Karen Elder of Loretto. Their grandparents are Larry and Mary Catherine Elder.

  • Be careful with the big bass

     I heard a very disturbing story the other day. When talking to a potential member of our Puddle Jumpers I mentioned we’d be fishing Spurlington Lake.

    The guy asked if there were any big bass left in the lake. I told him I saw an 8 to 10 pounder in the shallows last year, but didn’t catch it! Also told him one of our Puddle Jumper anglers, Michael Veatch, caught a monster out of there last year.

  • Donation for Edlin

    On June 16, the Loretto Youth League gathered together on their last day of games to present a plaque along with $300 raised for Kyle Edlin. Unfortunately, Edlin was unable to attend the meeting, though spirits were still high for him. 

    Shown are the various teams of the youth league who renamed themselves after Edlin. They stopped to pose on the baseball field with Edlin’s plaque and the money they collected.

  • Summer fire

    Cutting through the summer heat, the Marion County Lady Knights took on some extra-curricular games last week when they competed in the Team Competition Camp hosted at the University of Kentucky on June 12 and in a tournament hosted at Lindsey Wilson College on June 14.
    The Lady Knights won four out of five matches at UK, which featured teams from Kentucky and one from West Virginia.
    Following UK, the Lady Knights traveled south to take two wins against Leslie County and Hickman at LWC while falling in two sets to Allen Central.

  • Karate Jade

    Shorin ryu.
    According to Wikipedia, it is one of the oldest forms of karate there is. But while the martial art might be old, it certainly doesn’t mean the young can’t practice it.
    Jade Elder, 10, has been practicing shorin ryu since she was eight-years-old. She got her start when her Papa, Bobby Morgeson, introduced her to the sport.
    “He was probably a green belt or a purple belt when he asked me if I wanted to do karate,” Elder said. “So I said yeah.”

  • Disc golf

    I’m not an athlete. Never have been, never will be.
    In middle school, I lagged behind in all of our runs. In high school, it was the same way. I’ve never played basketball or football in any sort of competitive form. I’ve never played tennis or rode a bike in any competitive form.
    Because of this, it’s hard for me to say that I love playing a particular sport.
    It does not mean, however, that I haven’t enjoyed some athletic activities. Some of these include: paintball, bike riding and disc golf.

  • Getting deep, and deeper, about...

    Last week I wrote about deep dwelling bass and shallow bass. Apparently some people read my article cause I got comments like “That’s a bunch of crap” to “That’s what I thought too.”
    One guy asked a very simple yet complicated question. “How deep do you consider deep?”
    Well, when I fish with John, he considers water to be deep when you can’t touch bottom with your rod tip, from the edge of the boat!
