  • Biding his time

    March 11 will mark the 15-year anniversary of when Aaron Glasscock woke up to Drug Enforcement Administration agents storming into his hotel room in Gainesville, Fla., and arresting him for conspiracy to distribute cocaine.
    At that very moment, Aaron’s life, and the life of his family, was forever changed.
    “When the D.E.A. agents came in that morning everything I thought I knew, and my life in general, was turned upside down, and then shook,” Aaron wrote in a letter.

  • Life’s breath

    Cara Cissell Brahm is waiting – and hoping – that some day soon she'll be breathing a little easier.
    Since this summer, she has been on the list to receive a double lung transplant.
    Cara, 37, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when she was 10 years old. Two of her sisters (both older) were also diagnosed with the condition.
    “It mostly affects the lungs, but it can also affect the digestive system and the pancreas,” she said.
    Mindy died in 1999. Another sister, Lisa, received a transplant two and a half years ago.

    All three candidates sat down with the Enterprise recently to discuss their candidacies. (Transcripts of those interviews can be found online at www.lebanonenterprise.com.)

  • Pages of History

    It may be an understatement to say that Stephen Badin is a seminal figure in Roman Catholic history in the United States.
    In 1793, he became the first Roman Catholic priest ordained in the United States. He later did missionary work in Kentucky, and a farm that he purchased later became the Loretto Motherhouse.
    Badin later donated more than 500 acres of land in South Bend, Indiana, to the Diocese of Vincennes. This land later became the campus of the University of Notre Dame.
