  • Economic panel still seeking direction

    Five spectators who attended Tuesday’s meeting of Marion County Community Economic Development Corp. outnumbered board members. When the meeting began, just two board members were present — Merlyn Entz and Hannah Bourbon. They decided to go ahead with the meeting but make no decisions.

  • Cause of death uncertain in accident

    A Moundridge woman found dead at 5:35 p.m. July 18 at an accident scene on K-15 just south of 140th Rd. will be autopsied before determining whether the accident or a medical condition caused her death. According to the highway patrol, Martha Jean Biggs, 73, Moundridge, was northbound when her 2008 Chevrolet HHR drifted across the left lane and went into a ditch, striking a culvert, and overturning before coming to rest on its tires.

  • Legislator opposed tax lid

    The state’s tax lid, championed by former Gov. Sam Brownback and now causing concerns as Marion County prepares its budget, was a bad idea, according to one of Marion County’s state legislators. “The tax lid is supposed to do exactly that, lower property taxes,” said State Rep. Don Schroeder, R-Hesston, who represents Hillsboro, Peabody, and the southern portion of Marion County.

  • Sitting high on the horse

    “You have to live on a farm and own an animal to be in 4-H,” — a common misconception. Because of it, many youths don’t take advantage of the program. Marion’s Happy Hustler 4-H members Abree, 9, and Paige Ensey, 12, aren’t typical horse members. They live in town and, because of city ordinances, are not allowed to keep horses on their property.

  • Who let the dogs out?

    It was a dog day morning Saturday at Marion County Fair in Hillsboro. Eight 4-H members competed in agility, showmanship and obedience trials.

  • Lack of lake warnings puzzles experts

    A welcome mystery is puzzling county, state, and federal officials this summer. As inexplicably as blue-green algae arrived 15 years ago at Marion Reservoir and Marion County Lake, they just as inexplicably have vanished.

  • Moving ahead with running backward

    Winning running medals was not uncommon for Aaron Yoder in high school, but doing it running backward is relatively new. The latest medals were won by him and his family earlier this month at the world championships in retro-running in Bologna, Italy. Yoder attended Peabody-Burns through fifth grade. He transferred to Hillsboro when his father became elementary principal there. He graduated from Hillsboro High School in 2004 after setting records in the regular 1500m, 800m, mile, and cross-country.
