  • Crime doesn’t pay

     Aug. 7 started like any other Thursday. I woke up, prayed, made coffee and went to get the trashcans from the side of the road. 

    On my way there, I saw a cigarette with a chewed up filter lying underneath my car on the passenger side. At the time, I hadn’t smoked a cigarette in 537 days. 

    Suspicious, I decided to give my car a once over to make sure no vandals had paid a visit. Thankfully, no one trashed my car, but it was apparent that someone had been in it.

  • Home school, public sports

    Next year, both private and home-schooled children may be able to sink their teeth into public school athletics. That is, if the Kentucky legislature thinks it’s a good idea. 

    Marion County native and State Rep. Stan Lee (R) of Lexington, prefiled the “Tim Tebow” bill on Aug. 5. The bill, named after NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, reads that it would allow children in non-public schools, including home-schooled children, to participate in public school interscholastic extracurricular activities.

  • Staying fresh

    With a swing of the club, the Marion County Knights golf team has teed up and taken its opening drive.

    After losing Mason Gadberry, Logan Medley and Evan Dye to graduation, the group has a handful of returning players and only one senior this year: Trevor Burchell.

    “We have four returners on a team that now has 12,” Knights Coach Chad Spalding said. 

  • Lady Knights soccer team looking...

    After a grueling 6-12-3 season in 2013, the Lady Knights are preparing to go into battle with their new Coach Derek Cissell. 

    With their sights set high, the Lady Knights plan to take the district tournament as one of their goals this year. 

    “Every year that’s our number one goal,” Cissell said. 

    And, according to him, it’s obtainable. 

  • Good lady gone

     For several years now Barb Batcher at the Enterprise has been taking care of me!

    Ya see, I write the old-school way … a legal pad and a No. 2 lead pencil. So, every week, after I finish writing my thousand words (give or take a few), I slide it through the slot at the Enterprise office.

  • New Lady Knights coach is ready...

     On April 18, Lady Knights Coach Devin Johnson resigned to return to playing soccer at Kentucky Christian University while pursuing a degree in sports management.  

    After a long summer without word of who would take his place, the team has found its new leader, and he was there all along. 

    His name is Derek Cissell.

    Before being named coach, he was acting as a temporary coach to get the team together for seasonal play.

  • SCC wrestlers bond with trip to...

     Wrestling is often thought of as an individual sport with a few team aspects interspersed within the sport. However, the St. Catharine Patriots made a leap toward making their new program a total team concept with a team bonding event at Mammoth Cave National Park recently.

     The team took to the road June 20 with 26 of their 43 signees to lodge at the Jellystone Camping Resort in order to prep for two days of team events.
