  • Tee Time: Oakmont to present...

    By Dennis George

    Each of golf’s majors is unique in its own way.
    The Masters is the only one of the four played at the same venue each year.
    Golfers participating in The Open Championship must be able to maneuver their ball around the nuances of links golf.
    The PGA can boast that it is has the toughest field and they allow the players to make birdies instead of trying to have a winning score over par.
    And, then there is the US Open.

    Campbellsville High School is hoping the previous success of its latest head girls’ basketball coaching hire will rub off on the Lady Eagles’ program.
    Anthony Epps, who played on a boys’ state championship team at Marion County in 1993, on the University of Kentucky national-championship squad of 1996 and was an assistant on Marion County’s undefeated Lady Knight state title team of 2013, was officially hired as CHS’ new girls’ head coach last week.

  • Just do good

    By Gerard Flanagan

    "The time is always ripe to do something right" is a quote I heard once. I can't recall where I heard that quote from, but it's always stuck with me because of its power and truth. It doesn't matter where you are, what you're doing, or who you are. There's never a bad time to do something right and good. After all, is there ever a good time to do something bad?  

  • Woods and Waters: 4-H Camp is...

    I got to spend all of last week at 4-H Camp on Lake Cumberland. To say everyone had a good time would be an understatement. The kids were kids and did a lot of singing, dancing, high and low ropes, dancing, archery, kayaking, dancing, fishing, spelunking, dancing and a bunch of other activities. Did I mention dancing?

  • Pink Out!

    Marion County High School’s softball team hosted a Pink Out Game, and all proceeds from t-shirt sales and concessions were donated to the Marion County Good Samaritans Foundation.

  • Vaught’s Views: Landon Young...

    By Larry Vaught

    His friends Kash Daniel of Paintsville and Drake Jackson of Woodford County were enrolled at Kentucky for spring practice and got a jump start on their collegiate football career by graduating from high school a semester early.
    Yet Lafayette's Landon Young has no second thoughts about opting for a chance to win a state heavyweight wrestling championship (he did) and state titles in the shot put and discus (he won one, finished second in the other).

  • Blazers win Battle of the Bats

    The Blazers baseball team won the Battle Of The Bats Round Robin Tournament in Greensburg on May 28. The team finished with a perfect 4-0 record defeating, the Green River Outlaws 7-5, Monroe County 11-1, KY Hitmen 7-4 and the Russell County Lakers 9-8.

    The Marion County Knights' season came to a heartbreaking end on May 30 with a 3-2 loss to the Central Hardin Bruins in the Fifth Region Tournament. The Knights (18-20) fell behind early as the Bruins (33-6) notched a solo home run by Alex Bibb and drove home another run to go up 2-0. Knights pitcher Luke Thomas would settle down from there and held the Knights without a hit for the remainder of the game. Thomas pitched six innings and recorded five strikeouts.

  • Tee Time: Don’t let your playing...

    By Dennis George

    “A bad day on the golf course is better than a good day at the office.”
    How many times have we uttered those words when taking a day off from work to play in a golf outing?
    Whoever came up with that saying wasn’t walking a mile in my shoes during my three days of competing in the Georgia Senior Invitational Tournament.
    And I use the word competing lightly.
