Today's Sports

  • Summer fire

    Cutting through the summer heat, the Marion County Lady Knights took on some extra-curricular games last week when they competed in the Team Competition Camp hosted at the University of Kentucky on June 12 and in a tournament hosted at Lindsey Wilson College on June 14.
    The Lady Knights won four out of five matches at UK, which featured teams from Kentucky and one from West Virginia.
    Following UK, the Lady Knights traveled south to take two wins against Leslie County and Hickman at LWC while falling in two sets to Allen Central.

  • Karate Jade

    Shorin ryu.
    According to Wikipedia, it is one of the oldest forms of karate there is. But while the martial art might be old, it certainly doesn’t mean the young can’t practice it.
    Jade Elder, 10, has been practicing shorin ryu since she was eight-years-old. She got her start when her Papa, Bobby Morgeson, introduced her to the sport.
    “He was probably a green belt or a purple belt when he asked me if I wanted to do karate,” Elder said. “So I said yeah.”

  • Disc golf

    I’m not an athlete. Never have been, never will be.
    In middle school, I lagged behind in all of our runs. In high school, it was the same way. I’ve never played basketball or football in any sort of competitive form. I’ve never played tennis or rode a bike in any competitive form.
    Because of this, it’s hard for me to say that I love playing a particular sport.
    It does not mean, however, that I haven’t enjoyed some athletic activities. Some of these include: paintball, bike riding and disc golf.

  • Getting deep, and deeper, about...

    Last week I wrote about deep dwelling bass and shallow bass. Apparently some people read my article cause I got comments like “That’s a bunch of crap” to “That’s what I thought too.”
    One guy asked a very simple yet complicated question. “How deep do you consider deep?”
    Well, when I fish with John, he considers water to be deep when you can’t touch bottom with your rod tip, from the edge of the boat!

  • Community rallies for injured...

    What can you do in several seconds?

    Tie a shoelace? Type a search query? Dial a phone number?

    In some instances, seconds are all it takes for your life to change forever. 

    And on April 8, that’s exactly what happened to five Marion County teens.

  • Sidewalk Surfers

    Skateboarding conjures up many images: from Tony Hawk completing his famous 900, to the days of Dogtown and the Z-boys. One may think of long hair, rebellion, tattoos, quick wits and punk rock.

    For some, however, skateboarding is just a little bit different. 

    It’s an activity for family and friends. 

  • Look for bass in deep, shallow...

     When I went fishing the other day the lakes water was an average of 82 degrees. None of the several (how many is several?) bass I caught had bloody tails and none were unusually fat.

    What all this told me was that the spawn is over. Oh, there might be some late spawners, but I kinda doubt it!

    Summer is here! If not here, the door is open and a leg is in.
