  • Activating traffic signal on Lebanon bypass

    A traffic signal will be turned on Wednesday, Sept. 8, at the intersection of KY 2154 (the Marion County Veterans Memorial Highway) and KY 49 (Loretto Road).

    A recent traffic study by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet showed that nearly 6,000 vehicles passed through the intersection each day. The conclusion was that the intersection warranted a traffic signal.

    The transportation cabinet encouraged drivers to use extra caution as the community adjusts to the new signal. 

  • More questions than answers remain about pain clinic

    This week, The Enterprise is running a news story about Lebanon Medical Solutions.

    Working on this story has been an unusual experience for me as a reporter. Usually, when I do a story about a new business, the owners want people to know where they are and what services they are offering to the community.

  • BREAKING NEWS: Gravel Switch woman is missing

    The Kentucky State Police are currently looking for Kara Rigdon, 26, of Gravel Switch who has been missing since July 17.

    She was last seen on Beechfork Loop Road in Gravel Switch and last spoke with a family member in the early morning hours of July 18.

  • The Great Outhouse Blowout is Saturday

    Sparta's got NASCAR but Historic Penn's Store, just outside Lebanon has the Outhouse 300, the main event of the Great Outhouse Blowout Saturday, Sept. 11.

    Born from the Outhouse Dedication ceremony on Sept. 8, 1992, this unique event is held annually to celebrate and preserve Kentucky's rural heritage.

  • Representative Roundtable

    Jobs, the economy, and healthcare were just a few of the topics talked about at a roundtable discussion with U.S. Rep. Brett Guthrie during his visit to Lebanon Tuesday of last week. But, technical education and its need for additional funding dominated the discussion.

    Marion County Economic Development Director Tom Lund voiced his frustrations to Guthrie about the state's priorities and the lack of support technical education receives.

  • Fix Mr. Food's wing sauces on game day

    Remember Mr. Food? He used to have recipes on a local TV station during the noon news. I wrote down two of his recipes for sauces for chicken wings years ago, and they're quite good (and easy.)

    The wings in both recipes are baked, not fried, and can be stored in the refrigerator after baking, then warmed and tossed with the sauce at party time.

    Try one of these on your football fans next game day!

    10 lbs. chicken wings

    2 sticks real butter

    1 1/2 c. Tabasco or Louisiana hot sauce

  • Church music

    Sr. Alice Eugene Tighe uses a walker, but she was among the first to rise to give a standing ovation to the two musicians who performed at the Loretto Motherhouse Thursday evening.

    "They're both virtuosos simultaneously," she said.

    And Tighe, 96, should know. She has a PhD. in music from the University of Michigan, and she still teaches piano. She has lived at the Motherhouse for around seven months, and she said she has been impressed by all of the musicians who have performed during that time.

  • Former MAC employee charged with disorderly conduct

    Elizabeth Ann Newton, 26, of 807 West Finley Ridge Road in Campbellsville received 24 months of probation for disorderly conduct stemming from sexual contact with an inmate.

    Newton was originally charged with second-degree sexual abuse, but the charge was amended to disorderly conduct. Newton was also ordered to stay away from Marion Adjustment Center.

  • Knights name captains

    After six long weeks, the Marion County High School boys' soccer team named captains for the team.

    "It's been a long six weeks, trying to figure that out," Knights Head Coach Greg Conley said. "It's the longest I've waited in my career I think. We've been waiting for leadership to emerge."

    Conley gave the nod to seniors Dylan Browning and Ethan Drury. Juniors Scott Hunt and John Southall were also given the captain role by Conley.

    The coach said Hunt made a speech in the last two weeks that has really helped the team come together.

  • Knights shock Collins

    Though some games have been bigger in scale and more meaningful, the Marion County High School's win over Collins on Friday might have been the biggest win in the last seven years.

    Marion County kept the Collins off the field long enough to grab a 30-27 win, knocking off the team that some have picked to win the Class AAAA state title.

    "I really truly think that's one of the biggest wins in our program," Knights Head Coach Jeff Robbins said. "We've played in bigger games but this was a huge, huge game."
