  • Heat Wave

    As the park activities director for the City of Lebanon, Matthew Mattingly is used to working outdoors. At this time of year, almost everything he and his employees do is outside, and recently, that's meant working in temperatures that regularly exceed 90 degrees and heat indexes that push 100 degrees or higher.

    "It's probably about the worst week or week and a half we've had in the past three or four years," Mattingly said.

  • Holiday office closings

    County offices at the David R. Hourigan Government Center will be closed Saturday July 3, and Monday, July 5, for the Fourth of July holiday.

    The Marion County Sheriff's Office will respond to calls, but they will be routed through the dispatch at the Lebanon Police Department (621-2121 or 911 for emergencies).

    The 11-and-12-year-old All-Stars followed suit, beating Albany 14-4 to begin pool play.

    In their second game of pool play, the 9-and-10-year-olds continued their strong play with a 15-2 drubbing of Washington County. They finished Sunday afternoon with two wins and no losses in pool play.

The event got a big shot in the arm Monday when the Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission voted to give an $8,500 grant toward the event.

  • A Simple Man

    Today (June 17) I had the honor to bid farewell to a wonderful man by the name of Mark Mattingly. He was a big man, with a bold laugh, and was always involved with the City of Loretto. He also worked for Makers Mark in Loretto. I have known Mark for many years, and knew he was very involved with the community, but I in no way realized how much. He did what was expected of him, and did it well. Then he kind of faded into life! He never once expected recognition; just a simple thank you did it for him.
