  • Beat the heat!

    With summer in full force, being outdoors means warm weather, fun and exercise. 

    But getting outside and breaking a sweat also means those dedicated to exercise should be extra cautious in the heat. Not only can warmer temperatures be uncomfortable, they can also be downright dangerous. 

  • Back Tutu School

    Nearly 300 men, women, children and pets stormed Spalding Avenue wearing tutus for the Back Tutu School 2.2-mile Family Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, July 26.

    This was the second year for the event, and it raised $4,000 for Marion County’s Girls on the Run program.

    Unlike last year’s inaugural event, the weather was more than cooperative this year. According to  Stevie Lowery, coordinator of Marion County’s Girls on the Run program, the event went very well.

  • What’s in a name?

     “Don’t kill the camera man!”

    That’s a quote I’m taking from an anonymous volleyball player.

    Last week, I went to one of Marion County High School’s volleyball practices. Going there allowed me to get some photos and a sneak peek of the team. It also allowed me get back into the rhythm of the game.  

  • Knights split soccer scrimmages

     The Marion County Knights soccer team swung back into action over the weekend to scrimmage in the Bluegrass State Games. 

    The Knights played in two games on July 26. After falling 2-0 against the Grant County Braves, the Knights dusted themselves off and went on to defeat the University Heights Blazers, 2-0. 

    Freshman Colby Hood fired in the Knights’ first goal while sophomore Alan Guzman knocked in their second on an assist from senior Ryker Cassidy. 

  • George playing for national...

    Katie George, granddaughter of Dr. Salem and Eva George of Lebanon, played for the USA National Collegiate Volleyball Team that won a silver medal recently at the European Global Challenge Tournament in Pula, Croatia.

    Katie George is a setter for the University of Louisville and she was named to the American Athletic Conference’s First Team last season. She lead the Cardinals with 966 assists (9.20/set) and 30 aces with 30 and was ranked nationally in assists per set.

  • Lady Knights begin practicing
  • Keep yourself busy with a...

     Coming up this Saturday, Aug. 2, we have a regular cornucopia of outdoor stuff to consider.

    First — by time line, not importance — is the Outdoorsman Expo in Adair County. The high school location provides enough space for a “mega” event.

    They’ll have just about everything for the outdoors. You can find mounted deer heads, see how they’re scored, and the last I heard, have your head scored! (That’s your deer’s head, not yours.)
