  • Newspaper publishes ‘meaningless’, ‘despicable’ column

    By Alan J. George

    I am struggling to understand why The Lebanon Enterprise chose to publish a guest column that served no purpose other than to allow an individual with an obvious agenda to string together several disjointed ramblings and baseless and unwarranted rants and personal attacks. I am referring, “of course” (to borrow her phrase - see below) to the Nov. 14 guest column from Donna Kapfhammer.

  • Aunt Nonie George was gracious and kind but never subservient

    By Kevin George

    I read the guest column by Donna Kapfhammer, ironically on the anniversary of my
    mother's 93rd birthday. My father, Dr. Eli George, was Hyleme's brother and my
    mother and Aunt Nonie were as close as sisters. I spent many summer days playing all day with my cousin, Hyleme, Jr. so I know a little about which I speak.
    And why is it significant that I refer to my mother. Anyone who knew Gloria George would know that she was never subservient to my father or anyone else for that matter.

  • The Enterprise welcomes opinions - we don’t pick and choose

    Last week, I received a phone call from an angry reader.
    It was my mom.
    If you ask her, she’ll probably tell you she wasn’t angry.
    But, she was.
    She was practically yelling at me. Of course, if you ask her, she was talking in a “normal” tone.
    But, she wasn’t.
    She was ticked.
    Why?
    Well, thankfully, it wasn’t anything I did or said.

  • Kentucky connections to presidential assassinations

    On Friday, our country will mark the 50th anniversary of one of its most tragic events: the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
    Like the attack on Pearl Harbor before it and 9/11 after it, Nov. 22, 1963, is one of a handful of dates in history where those old enough to remember it will never forget where they were and what they were doing.

  • Tornado watch in effect until 10 p.m.

    The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for several central Kentucky counties, including Marion County.

    The tornado watch is in effect until 10 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17.

  • Arthur Mattingly Road home damaged by fire

    Firefighters from Loretto, Lebanon and Raywick responded to house fire late Tuesday night at 340 Arthur Mattingly Road.

    No one was injured in the fire, but Loretto Fire Chief Tommy Hamilton indicated the house may not survive.

    “We’re going to estimate that the house was lost,” he said.

    According to Hamilton, the homeowner, Larry Mattingly, was awake when he noticed he’d lost electricity in his kitchen.

  • Special-called tourism meeting this afternoon

    The Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission is scheduled to have a special-called meeting at 3:30 this afternoon, Nov. 13, at the Centre Square Convention Center, Room 300.

    The commission was scheduled to meet on Monday, Nov 11, but only three commissioners (Carlotta Brussell, Chairman Brad Lanham, David Winebrenner) were present, which meant the commission did not have a quorum, and therefore could not take any action.
