  • Saying good-bye

    By Casey Sowers

    Sports correspondent

     

    Well it’s been real, and it’s been fun, and it’s just been real fun working here for The Lebanon Enterprise the past seven months, and I hate to say goodbye.
    As I move this weekend to Tennessee for school and soccer, I have to leave my job (sad face).
    I have had the joy of working here, writing columns, taking pictures, and writing stories as well as traveling to different places for sports events.

  • A clarification

    By Carrie Bridgman

    I'm glad to have started a conversation with my column on marriage equality, as it is a conversation that needs to happen. Given the number of recent editorials discussing my column, I want to clarify several points. Anyone who would like to speak with me further about this issue is welcome to contact me privately.

  • It’s more than just community theatre

    By G.B. Dixon

    The lights are dark once more on the stage of Angelic Hall in Centre Square. "The Sound of Music" has concluded. Gone altogether are the crowds which lent personality to each chair for two weekends. Home are the stagehands, the technicians, costumers, ushers, musicians, and actors that dedicated themselves to summoning the excellence of Broadway to the Bluegrass. Weary are the producer and director.

  • MCHS cheerleaders named 'Champs' at UCA Camp

    The Marion County High School cheerleaders attended the UCA Cheer Camp July 19-22 at the University of Kentucky. The team received several superior ribbons throughout the week as well as a second place trophy for cheer and first place or “Camp Champs” in their Xtreme Routine, where they competed against several teams from across Kentucky. This year’s head coach is Amy Mattingly and the assistant coach is Courtney Murphy.

  • The next big event is almost here

    OK, I’ve talked about it for weeks. It’s been planned for months and months. Now, it’s here!
    What am I talking about? If you gotta ask, then it’s obvious you don’t read my column very often!
    So what’s here? Well, it’s the 2015 Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation banquet/fundraiser coming up Saturday, Aug. 1.
    I bet you thought it was going to be Distinguished Young Women, a.k.a. the Junior Miss program at our high school

  • A variety of discussions and debates continue

    The recent United States Supreme Court ruling on Obergefell vs. Hodges has overturned bans against same-sex marriage for all states in the U.S. This, of course, includes Kentucky, and there have been questions raised by county clerks, religious leaders, legislators, and citizens. An issue such as this is personal for many, and it is not a surprise that the transition has been complicated. As your senator, it is my job to look at how the ruling affects Kentucky statutes and our constitution. We will have work to do on this issue in the next general assembly.

  • Heroin law should go a long way in reducing drug overdoses

    Earlier this year, when the General Assembly approved legislation designed to curb the state’s heroin epidemic, many called the law a national model because of the way it blended additional treatment, smart-on-crime measures and tougher penalties for traffickers.
    On Monday, July 20, we learned that another comprehensive law in this field, this one targeting prescription drug abuse, is making the significant difference that other legislators and I had hoped when we passed it in 2012.
