KAKE-TV’s Larry Hatteberg made a trip to Marion this week to do a feature story about Larry “Farmer” and Deana Olsen. The Olsens live west of Marion and are known for their miniature horses. The Olsens’ Tiny Trails operation on their farm allows people to come out lead a horse through a mile of trails. Their other horse operation, Cottonwood Miniatures, allows the Olsens to breed, train, and sell horses.
The Marion swim team ran away with a championship Saturday at Solomon. It was the team’s third victory in four meets this season. Pictured are team members Courtney Herzet, Emily Schafers, and Tori Shults.
Loreen Hett was recognized this week as the outstanding employee of the quarter at St. Luke Hospital and Living Center and Marion County Home Care.
Hillsboro American Legion’s Babe Ruth team will play in Marion at a district tournament that will begin July 11. The Hillsboro team has a bit of a Marion flavor this year with three athletes from the 2008 Marion High School squad on the roster. Wil Case, Brian Fruechting, and Calvin Jeffrey of Marion joined the Hillsboro team this year.
