  • Slow down, buckle up

    Many, maybe even most, drivers will get a ticket at some time in their lives.

    Speeding is the most frequent offense, but it's not the only one. Reckless driving, ignoring traffic control devices and not wearing a seat belt can all attract the attention of a law enforcement officer in Kentucky.

    No one likes getting pulled over, but almost every time, if we are being honest, we know what driving violation we have committed before the officer asks for our license and registration.

  • Arson investigation underway in Gravel Switch

    Kentucky State Police Arson Investigator Alex Wesley is investigating a residential fire that occurred at the home of Gravel Switch Volunteer Fire Department Chief Larry Vaughn on the morning of Thanksgiving.

    According to the Kentucky State Police, Lebanon Police Department's dispatch received a call Thursday, Nov. 26, at 9:26 a.m., that there was a fire at 109 East Railroad Street in Gravel Switch. Firefighters responded and prevented a total loss but the home sustained significant damage. No one was at the residence when the fire occurred and there were no injuries.

  • It’s time for pecan pie

    I've been trying a lot of new dishes lately. I don't know why, maybe it has something to do with winter coming, a connection with the squirrelly part of my family.

    And speaking of nuts, this new pecan pie recipe I tried is so good it rivals my mom's favorite pie.

    She wasn't a frequent pie baker, but pecan pie was her favorite and this time of year, when the pecans came in, she'd fix it often.

    This first recipe is from Sunnyland Farms in Albany, Ga., and it is to die for.

  • Knights among Elite Eight

    The last time LaRue County and Marion County played each other, the Knights pulled away in the second half after a nip and tuck first half.

    This time after the dust settled the Knights were up 28-0 with four minutes to go in the half. So much for the rematch.

    Marion County High School was hitting on all cylinders in their 41-14 win over district rival LaRue in the second round of the Class AAAA playoffs Friday at John J. Boswell Field.

  • Mattingly finishes strong

    Matthew Mattingly conquered the hills of the Kentucky Horse Park to place in the top 60 runners in the state in his class.

    Mattingly, a senior, finished 56th out of 232 runners in the KHSAA Class AA state cross-country meet on Saturday in Lexington with a time of 18 minutes and 29 seconds to accomplish his goal of making it to state.

    "I was really wanting to get into the 17's but those hills make you run out of gas," Mattingly said after the race. "Plus with all those people it's kind of like NASCAR."

  • Substantive debates

    A city official stopped in the Enterprise this week. When staff members joked with her about running for a state office, her reply was no, she wasn't interested.

    "That's real politics," she said.

    Based on what we've seen so far from the campaigns to fill the vacant District 14 state senate seat, we're inclined to agree with her. District 14 includes Marion, Mercer, Nelson, Taylor and Washington counties.

  • Knights face athletic Western squad

    The Knights travel to Western High School on Friday night. Kick off is set for 7:30 p.m. in the region championship game. The winner advances to the state semi final at Western Kentucky University to face either Lone Oak (12-0) or Allen County - Scottsville (11-0).

    A caravan will be leaving from the new Kroger at 5:30 p.m. on Friday night. Those wishing to paint car windows should arrive early.

    Western High School (7-5) may have a lower win percentage than Marion County High School (10-2) but they still hold home field advantage on Friday night.
