  • Lebanon animal ordinance now in Effect

    I was wondering how the sales of the animal tags were going in the City of Lebanon, so I stopped in city hall to check. I was shocked at the answer. "Ninety" was the reply that I received. Although the city ordinance went into effect the first of the year, I was surprised with the number since there has been limited publicity of these new laws. This weekly article, our time slot on Mike FM 100.9 (every Friday at 7:40 a.m.) and the local news coverage from our media friends have been the only ways Lebanon residents have learned of the new laws.

    President should stand up for Bible

    Our new President [Barack] Obama should endorse the Bill of Rights as it is written for all citizens. David fought Goliath!

    He should acknowledge public law 97-280 as good and proper.

    Wisdom comes from God. David was young!

    All of us should read Deuteronomy on the blessings of God and the consequences of not following God's plan. David defeated Goliath!

    The new President as well as citizens should read and stand up for the Bible and fear God.

  • Locals face off with Taylor County

    The Knights and Lady Knights hit the road to take on Taylor County on Friday night. The Lady Knights tip off at 6:30 p.m. and the Knights tip off at 7:30 p.m. according to the KHSAA website.

    The Lady Knights hit a rough patch in their schedule that should test their skills. After facing district foe Adair County on Tuesday night, the ladies take on Taylor (8-7) on Friday night then travel to Louisville the next day to play highly touted Sacred Heart High School (13-2), who is ranked seventh in the state in last week's Louisville Courier-Journal Litkenhous Ratings.
