  • Lack of funding means less food

    The Lebanon Senior Citizens Center may not be able to serve as many hot meals in the coming months but the doors are going to remain open, according to Tom Moorman, the executive director of Community Action.

    The center will be functioning on fewer funds and one less employee, but it will continue to operate, he said.

  • Musical legend

    I was four years old when I was first introduced to Michael Jackson.

    Only, I didn't call him that. I called him "Michael Jackins."

    The letter "S" was just too difficult for me to enunciate back then. I didn't have my two front teeth for quite some time as a young child (I have many embarrassing photos to prove it) and the "S" in Michael Jackson was very difficult for me to enunciate, so I just chose not to.

  • 2009 extraordinary session yields comprehensive legislation

    As my colleagues and I began the second week of the 2009 extraordinary session, we were still uncertain as to if we would be able to accomplish our foremost mission, addressing our almost $1 billion budget shortfall. With the Senate approving one version of the budget and the House approving vastly a different one, many were unsure about the bill's fate.

  • Debris sites will close July 7

    Storm debris collection sites in Loretto and Raywick will be closing Tuesday, July 7, according to Marion County Judge/Executive John G. Mattingly.
