  • 14 more options in the race for President

    Only two candidates have received national attention, but Kentucky voters actually have 16 options on Nov. 6. Five candidates (including Barack Obama and Mitt Romney) will appear on the ballot, but 11 write-in candidates have filed as well.

    If you aren't satisfied with what either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney have to offer, here are your other options.

    The following candidates will appear on the ballot:

  • Obama, Romney vie for Presidency

    On Nov. 6, American voters will have the opportunity to decide who they would like to lead the nation for the next four years.

    The two major candidates are incumbent President Barack Obama, a Democrat, and challenger Mitt Romney, a Republican and the former governor of Massachusetts.

    In the past month, the candidates have debated each other three times, and their running mates, Vice President Joe Biden and Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan, even squared off down the road at Centre College in Danville.

  • More than just numbers at MCHS

    Building relationships with students and maintaining a healthy school culture are a primary focus for Marion County High School, Principal Stacey Hall told school board members during their regular monthly meeting, which was held Oct. 23 at MCHS.

    But, at the end of the day, Hall said he realizes what many people are going to be focused on is test scores.

  • Abandoned animals

    This month marks 30 years since the Marion County Animal Shelter was first opened.

    It's a place I remember well.

  • It isn't about the party, it's about values

    In 1992, only 51 Marion County residents voted in the Republican primary.  

    Today, the Marion County GOP's membership exceeds 2,000 registered voters.  

    A group that once could squeeze into a phone booth now needs a real meeting room to gather.

  • Still more on misleading ads

    If you get mail with "Paid for by Kentucky Family Values" on it, just throw it away.

    Terry Mills wants the ads to stop, too. He wrote in a statement to the Enterprise that he does not support the ads. He has contacted Kentucky Democratic Party leaders to say he does not want the negative ads. They told him they could not stop them.

  • Today is the final day to request mail-in absentee ballot

    Tuesday, Oct. 30, is the last day to request a mail-in absentee ballot for the Nov. 6 election.

    There is an exception for military personnel. Members of the Armed Forces who learn between Oct. 30 and Nov. 5 that they will be confined to a military base will be allowed to request an absentee ballot.

    Today is also the last day for someone who previously requested an absentee ballot to cancel that ballot if they know they will be able to vote in person. These voters will need to return the ballot they had requested by today to the Marion County Clerk's Office.
