  • Winter Weather Cancels Sporting Events

    With the winter weather making an appearance, a couple of MCHS sporting events have been cancelled.  The AquaKnights swim meet and the Lady Knights freshman and junior varsity game at Washington County, both originally scheduled for Thursday night, have been cancelled.  At this time, the swim meet is tentatively rescheduled for next Thursday January 19th at 6:00 P.M. and no make-up date for the basketball game has been set.

  • First-grader recovering from fall

    A West Marion Elementary School student returned to school one day after falling from gym bleachers before classes started Jan. 11.
    West Marion Principal Benji Mattingly said the student, a first-grader, may have been leaning on a rail on the bleachers when he fell from the third or fourth bleacher and hit his head on the floor.
    "I don't know for certain, but the railing may not have been in the loop the correct way. When it fell, he fell," Mattingly said.

  • New year, new political cycle

    The General Assembly has opened its 2012 session, which means state politics are going to be unavoidable for at least a few more months.
    Last Wednesday, State Sen. Jimmy Higdon and State Rep. Terry Mills took part in the Marion County Chamber of Commerce's legislative breakfast. They discussed some topics that have previously been reported in the Enterprise, such as legislation regarding pill mills, school bus advertising and redistricting.

  • Opening the door

    In many ways, the Marion County Industrial Foundation is a mystery. For decades, a collection of local business leaders and public officials have met regularly to help design an economic development strategy for our community.
    Nevertheless, what the foundation does has been unclear to many of us. The foundation provides oversight over the Marion County Economic Development Office, but unlike the Lebanon City Council or the Marion County Fiscal Court, the industrial foundation is not considered a public agency, at least, not in the eyes of the law.

  • The future has finally arrived

    If you're like me, you enjoy watching movies. I love to watch some of my favorites when there's nothing else on TV.
    My wife and I have passed this pleasure on to our son, who at 14 years old enjoys many movies that were made when he was very young, or even before he was born.

  • When patents go too far

    By Erin L. McCoy

    Through the years, the U.S. Patent Office has approved some pretty odd inventions. A mustache guard may have been useful 100 years ago - and its heyday may be coming around again. The toothbrush bracelet and bunny-shaped syringe have a comprehensible, if dubious, logic behind them. Meanwhile, I'm flabbergasted why the robot lunchbox never caught on.

  • Showdown at the Roby Dome

    On Saturday, Marion County High School will host the second annual Autism Awareness Classic. The day will get started with the first of seven games at 11 a.m., and will be capped off by a pair of Marion County Lady Knights and Knights games.
