    I hope everyone had a good and safe holiday weekend. The wife and I spent most of the weekend enjoying the festivities in Campbellsville with the Grundys.

  • Wrong side of history

    By Matt Overing

    I’m not Native American. I’m not a fan of any NFL team. But I think Dan Snyder, the owner of the Washington Redskins, is fighting a battle that he should unquestionably lose.

    Snyder made news Wednesday, June 18, because the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office eliminated his team’s trademark on the name “Redskins,” calling the nickname “disparaging,” or derogatory.

  • Soap Box Racers

    Inches from the ground, asphalt grinds like a raging belt sander. The sound of rubber rolling on the pavement lets out a dry roar, and the only thing keeping the driver’s butt from meeting the road at 35 miles per hour are four slim tires, a wood floor, and a thin plastic shell that was prefabricated and assembled in a garage. 

  • Puddle Jumpers are ready

     While I’m thinking about it, a few weeks ago, in response to requests made, we changed our Puddle Jumper rules to allow any boat to be used. The only stipulation is that a gas engine cannot be attached to the boat. Other rules remain as stated.

    So, for those of you who wanted to fish the Puddle Jumpers, where are you?

    Our next Puddle Jumper tournament will be Saturday, July 19, on McDougal Lake in Larue County. Launch time will be at 6 a.m. with a noon weigh-in.

  • Cheerleading camp

     The Marion County High School cheerleaders are working hard this summer to prepare for the upcoming season. They recently participated in a stunt clinic with former UK cheerleader Corey Brown. The cheerleaders are also doing yoga with Jennifer Lawson and cardio with Autria Calhoun each week.

  • Little League, July 2
  • Softball: Playing for Kyle

    On June 27 and 28, the Dereck Hutchins Memorial Tournament was held for the second time in Loretto. 

    Teams did battle in the heat this year in memory of Hutchins, though all of the proceeds went to benefit Kyle Edlin, who lost his leg in a tragic accident earlier this year.
