Today's News

  • News, like food, expires

    If you're a news organization, credibility is everything.

    It's your reputation, your standing in the community, even your bread-and-butter as your advertisers will not want to do business with you if you are not a credible source of information.

    To that end, it's very important to check the facts before sending a story to print, putting it on a web site, or broadcasting it over the airwaves.

    And even then, you're bound to make a mistake. It's not just a matter of IF, it's WHEN, because it will happen. And when it does, it's also important to correct that mistake.

  • Boys golf team tees off

    After looking like a region contender last season, the Marion County High School boys golf team fell victim to tough conditions at the region to finish short of their goal of going to state. This year, they look to rebound.

    Gone are seniors Tommy Carrico and Joseph George, two of the top golfers from last year's squad. Three of the top five from last year remain, however, and look to lead the Knights this season.

    Brian Loper, Joseph Elder and Taylor Brady return to avenge last season.

  • First Day

    Jim Thomas has worked for Marion County EMS for 20 years, and in that time, he's taught many others how to do his job. But this fall, he'll be tackling a new challenge - teaching high school students.

    Although he's used to teaching adults, he has taught children before, albeit small children at St. Augustine Grade School.

    "I've dealt with young age children before teaching CPR. They enjoyed it," Thomas said.

  • Volleyball program looks to make history

    With the addition of transfer middle hitter Katie Dingus to an already talented squad, the Marion County High School volleyball team has all the pieces to make a run at their first regional title.

    "This could be the best team in program history as they try to defend back-to-back district titles and make a push for a regional title," MCHS volleyball Head Coach David Hibbard said.

  • Westboro vs. the Biebster

    The Westboro Baptist Church crazies are at it again, and apparently they do not have Bieber fever.

    Recently, the whackos from Westboro protested outside a Justin Bieber concert at the Sprint Center in Kansas City.

  • Site-based council asks superintendent to appoint interim principal

    The Marion County High School Site-Based Decision Making Council interviewed candidates for the vacant principal's seat last week, but they have not yet selected who will be offered the position.

    The council held a special-called meeting Monday, and it was scheduled to meet again Tuesday evening (after the Enterprise had gone to press) to discuss the seven finalists for the vacant high school principal's seat.

  • Handle with care

    We don't know who did it, and it's possible we never will. Regardless, we hope it doesn't happen again, and neither do local school officials.

    Last week, someone unloaded a pile of old school files into a recycling bin at the City of Lebanon's recycling center on Woodlawn Avenue. Normally, this would be a good thing. Recycling is something more of us should do more often.

  • Lebanon man arrested on attempted murder charge

  • Confidential student documents left in recycling bin

    Someone intent on recycling old documents left several pages including confidential student and school information in a bin at the City of Lebanon's recycling center on Woodlawn Avenue recently.

    A citizen brought a few documents he'd seen at the recycling center to the Enterprise Friday afternoon. A reporter went to the center, where more documents were found. The newspaper contacted Marion County School officials Monday about the documents.
