  • Kentuckians share their memories of Sept. 11

    From Kentucky News Content Service 

     

    In the moments before the first plane hit the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, officials from 18 states had gathered for the annual Southern Governors' Association conference in Lexington. As Governor of Kentucky and chairman of the association, I was hosting the event. 

  • 10 years later: Looking back on 9-11

    Some things remain fresh in our minds no matter how much time has passed since they occurred. For many Americans, 9-11 has become one of those things.

    The Enterprise asked Marion Countians to share their memories of that day. Here is what they wrote.

    Here is what they remember.

     

  • Handle with care

    Adrienne Basham made a trip to the emergency room recently with her 3-month-old son, Bailey. 

    "[The nurse] said, 'Well, what's wrong with him?' And I told her, 'He has a broken leg and he has possible broken ribs.'" said Basham, 23, of Loretto. "She just looked at me. We get the craziest looks."

    Trips to the emergency room have become routine ever since Bailey was born. He has Osteogenesis imperfecta, which is also known as brittle bone disease. 

  • Insurance agent dies

    Bill Hagan was politically savvy, a good businessman and able to relate to anyone.

    "He had a gift," Elmer George said. "He was at ease talking to people, and he enjoyed listening to people."

  • Missing Lebanon native has died

    The search for a missing Marion County man has come to an unfortunate end.

    Larry Lee has died.

    Lee, 32, has been missing since Aug. 4, when he walked away from the Falmouth Care Home, a personal-care facility. He was found Saturday by some hunters near a river in Falmouth.

    For Lee's family and friends, the discovery ends a month of multiple searches and  reports of possible sightings.

  • Prayer for Josh

    By Ken Begley

    Guest columnist

     

    Writer Garrison Keillor once said that "All wars in the U.S. have been controversial from the very beginning."  

    So true.

  • 9-11 still lingers in our memories

    Certain events burn themselves into our memories.

    Depending on your age, you may remember vividly where you were when you learned about the attack on Pearl Harbor, the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., and the space shuttle Challenger explosion.

    I suspect for most people old enough to remember, Sept. 11, 2001, has become one of those enduring memories as well.
