Today's News

  • It's time to celebrate being a girl

    If you saw a crowd of people running on treadmills on Main Street in Lebanon Friday, along with a life-size bulldog doing the humpty dance, don't freak out. You weren't seeing things.

    Friday, The Lebanon Enterprise hosted its first annual Main Street Treadmill Challenge.

    The event's goal was two-fold:

    One, to raise money for Girls on the Run;

    And, two, to promote health and wellness in our community.

  • Correction

    The final paragraph of the story in the May 16 Enterprise about the Kentucky State Police being found not negligent in the death of LeBron Gaither should have read as follows:

    The Board of Claims noted in its findings that Detective Tim Simpson testified that the KSP has the highest degree of responsibility to a confidential informant, and Detective Danny Burton testified that he believed he was responsible for Gaither's death.

  • Memorial Day - a day to be grateful to those who serve

    With most schools already out for the year and the sun not setting until well into the evening, it's understandable if many look to the upcoming three-day holiday weekend as the unofficial start of summer.

    Memorial Day is about much more than that, though.

    For nearly 150 years now, it has been a day of remembrance, a day to recall the sacrifice that so many gave for our nation.

  • Graduation Day

    The Class of 2012 celebrated the completion of their Marion County High School careers Saturday morning, May 19, in the Roby Dome.

    Friends and family were present to show their pride and their support for the graduates.

    Look for more from graduation in the May 23 print edition.

  • Treadmill challenge raises over $4,000

    The Lebanon Enterprise's Main Street Treadmill Challenge, held on Friday, raised more than $4,000 for Girls on the Run.

    From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, community volunteers ran or walked for 30 minutes (or longer) to raise money for Girls on the Run. Two participants, Greg and Nisha West, biked 102 miles from Monticello to Lebanon before taking the treadmill.

  • Old phone is smart enough to make calls

    By Linda Ireland

    LCNI News Service

    The first time I saw one of those strange little QR codes in an advertisement, I thought it was a mistake. It looked like a graphic artist had mangled a photo or barcode.

    Quick Response codes have been around since the mid-1990s but their popularity has increased since the introduction of "smartphones."

    They've even been showing up in ads in The LaRue County Herald News.

  • Balanced Senate postal reform bill is best solution

    By Max Heath

    Guest Columnist

    Now that the U.S. Senate has passed bipartisan S 1789 to reform the ailing U.S. Postal Service, critics are trying to disable the bill on its way to the House. Both postal unions and USPS want more for their side, and some Republicans mistakenly believe the bill burdens taxpayers.

    Unfortunately, Kentucky Senators Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul both bought into that logic and opposed 1789.

  • A more civil debate

    I'm a fan of the comic strip The Boondocks, and last week, I couldn't help but be reminded of a strip I read years ago.

    Granddad was talking to his grandsons. He thought they might have some questions in light of news reports about "gay marriage," and he wanted them to know how he felt.

    "First off," he tells the boys, "all marriage is wrong."
