  • Cellular providers pushing for greater 4G access, service

    When smartphones first came out, the number of low-income families and individuals who purchased those devices surprised many people in the cellular industry.
    Eventually, they realized those devices offered a way to access the Internet at a lower cost than buying a computer and paying for in-home service, according to Hood Harris, president of AT&T Kentucky.
    That connectivity also meant more opportunities — more ways for anyone to search for jobs, send emails and learn about the world around them.

  • Broadway star

    Before the 2015 Marion County Distinguished Young Woman was announced, Bethany Spalding turned to Rachel Gootee.

  • Fighting for another chance

    In the 1990s, federal officials decided to show they were getting tough on crime by implementing a “three strikes you’re out” law.
    Darrell Hayden’s third strike occurred in 1999 when he was arrested on federal charges of manufacturing marijuana and conspiracy charges in Michigan. He was convicted in 2001, and because Hayden had two prior convictions (also for growing marijuana), he was sentenced to two life sentences with 10 years of supervised probation.

  • School board: Superintendent is ‘excellent’

    It only took a few minutes Monday evening for Marion County Board of Education Chairman DeLane Pinkston to read a glowing evaluation of Superintendent Taylora Schlosser.

    - Mary Kay Ash

    I have worked at The Lebanon Enterprise for 12 years now, and the people I work with have become a second family to me.

    I think they would agree with me, too.
    We are a family.
    We’ve experienced lots of ups and downs together.

  • Repent, really?

    Editor’s note: This column was written in response to a column that appeared in the July 23 edition of the Enterprise.

    When I take a look around our great nation (through my own eyes versus the mass media), I see a nation that continues to bloom with compassion and good will. Where great people work hard every day to extend a helping hand to those less fortunate in economics and education.
