  • Testing out the public fields (...

     It’s been an outstanding week. First, those of you who aren’t retired got an extra day off work. Well, most of you did!

    But the best part is that it was the opening of dove season. And, in my humble opinion, there seems to be more doves this year!

    Or it could be that the birds aren’t scattered real bad because not that many have been cut?

  • Welcome back to all fall athletes

    Welcome back Knights and Lady Knights!

    After a long summer, I’m ready to get back to covering Marion County High School’s athletic programs, as I’m sure many of you are eager to get back to playing and watching the games.

    Over the last two weeks, I’ve gotten to go to several games and was happy to get back to work - even though the heat is back with a vengeance.

    It was their first home game of the season and the Bulldogs (4-0) led the Knights 2-0 at halftime.

     Dove shooting tip: Shoot where they’ll be, not where they are!

    It was finally here, actually open till 11 a.m. At least, it didn’t open till 11 a.m. the Green River WMA (Wildlife Management Area). While I had an excellent spot for the following weekend … on private land … I was content to find this WMA.
