  • TENNIS: Knights get one more in before regional meet

    The Marion County Knights were able to get one more match in before the regional meet, which began on Monday at Freeman Lake Park in Elizabethtown, against the Taylor County Cardinals last Wednesday at Miller Park in Campbellsville.
    The match was a make-up match from earlier in the season that was cancelled due to poor weather.
    “They played well,” Marion County coach Noah Swencki said. “Bryce got a good win, Ireland got another good win and our second doubles team for the girls got a good win. Colin got a good win too.”

  • Vaught’s Views: E.J. Montgomery a 'low key, low maintenance type of player'

    By Larry Vaught

    Even though most were speculating that Georgia forward E.J. Montgomery was going to pick Duke over Kentucky and others, Rivals.com writer Dan McDonald (@DMcDonaldsRivals on Twitter) was not surprised when he signed with John Calipari and Kentucky.
    “I had been tipped off by a source close to him a couple weeks ahead of time that Kentucky had the edge over Duke and UNC (North Carolina). I think his experience at the McDonald’s All-American Game finished it off,” McDonald said.

  • Full transparency

    In today’s political climate, government agencies should be going out of their way to be completely transparent.

    Last week, the Marion County Board of Education chose not to when they held a budget work session at noon on a Monday and chose not to record their discussion.

    I specifically asked for the work session to be recorded.

  • Never givin’ up

    Watch enough sports games or follow sports long enough and you’ll eventually see a struggle. When players or sports figures are confronted with a struggle, they can fight back, overcome the obstacle and persevere through the difficulty. Their other option is to shy away from the challenge, ignore the problem and collapse under the pressure.
