    Lebanon defeated Springfield 21.5 to 8.5.

  • Bad news

    This week's Lebanon Enterprise is depressing.

    Any time we have bad news to report, it's depressing, but it's rare that so much bad news happens all at once.

    During the last eight days, Marion County has experienced a murder/suicide, an attempted murder, the arrest of four firefighters (and reports from the Kentucky State Police that more arrests are possible) and a car accident that forced an emergency Caesarean section. More sadly, the baby, Raelyn Michelle "Skeeter" Gribbins, died the day after the accident.

  • Hide the vegetables in a dessert

    I've had several people call and ask me what to do with an over-abundance of zucchini or yellow squash. This is a common problem for gardeners-it happens every year.

    Even though I've scaled back my zucchini to four plants, I also have more than I can eat fresh.

    If you want to freeze the excess, you can. The easiest way is to shred the zucchini, drain and pack in one-cup portions to use in bread, cookies, etc.

    According to the police, Tabitha K. Hutchison, 26, of Lebanon was driving a 1996 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, and Donna M. "Shelly" Gribbins, 29, of Lebanon was driving a 2007 Toyota Corolla. Janice Gribbins, 58, also of Lebanon, was a passenger in the Toyota.

  • Is the county next?

    The day after the City of Lebanon approved the second reading of an amended alcohol ordinance, a similar request was presented to the Marion County Fiscal Court.

    The city's ordinance allows Sunday alcohol sales by the drink as well as packaged sales, and it extends the sales hours until 1 a.m. (although state laws end packaged sales hours at midnight).
