  • Making the most of a job interview

    By Carter Dyson

    Your careful research, resume, cover letter and application have paid off. You’ve landed an interview for the job you want. But your outlook has shifted from excitement to apprehension as you think about coming face to face with a hiring manager who will judge your skills, your experience, your attire and even your handshake.

  • It’s going to be a busy interim for legislators

    Over a month has passed since the conclusion of the 2017 session of the Kentucky General Assembly, but my work as your senator has not slowed. Between answering your well thought-out letters and phone calls, I have been visiting with constituents in our district and listening to your concerns and preparing to discuss many of those topics during the interim.

  • REAL ID a real solution for Kentuckians

    By State Rep. Brandon Reed

  • You and the Tri-County United Way make our community better

    By Lynne Robey
    Central Kentucky Community Action Council
    Executive director

    The Lebanon Enterprise published the Tri-County United Way allocations for 2017 in last week’s edition. These funds are generated through voluntary payroll deductions from the employees of local businesses.

  • Seeing Seth smile

    Some stories I write for the newspaper really stick with me.
    The story I wrote about Seth Martinez, which was in last week’s edition of the Enterprise, is one of those stories.
    After learning more about Seth and how he was abused, I was disgusted, angered and heartbroken. How someone could abuse a child is something I will never understand. As a parent, I understand that caring for children can be stressful and, at times, maddening. But, it is never okay to abuse a child. Never.

  • Session was a significant one for Kentucky

    By State Rep. Brandon Reed

    The most significant legislative session in modern Kentucky history has officially come to an end. Although it was just a short, 30-day session, the General Assembly has accomplished more in 2017 than in any recent 60-day session.

  • Final week of 2017 session a historical one

    Long nights, intense debate, and media attention from across the globe wrapped up what started as a quiet final week of the 2017 session of the Kentucky General Assembly. Minutes before the Senate gaveled out for good, Governor Matt Bevin called this session the most productive in history. It was truly an honor to work alongside the governor with the new House majority to pass many great initiatives for our commonwealth.

  • Keep Marion County beautiful

    This column is being written and published specifically for the jerks that continue to vandalize the Scott’s Ridge lookout. It’s also for anyone who knows them. I’d like you to relay this message to them because I’m certain the delinquents who are trying to spoil one of the most beautiful views in Marion County don’t read a newspaper.
    Anyone who has attempted to ruin the splendor of the Scott’s Ridge lookout should know – you’re being watched.
    And, when you’re caught, you will be prosecuted.

  • Marion County kids have talent

    Marion County is blessed with so many incredibly talented children.
    Last week, I was fortunate enough to see many of them in action.

  • Crusade for Children is a lifesaver

    Around this time of year when local fire departments begin collecting money for the Crusade for Children, I’m reminded of how blessed I am to be here.
    The Crusade helped save my life when I was born.
    My twin sister and I were born five to six weeks premature, and soon after I was delivered I was having difficulty breathing. The “Baby Buggy” took my twin and me to Norton Children’s Hospital and the medical staff there saved my life.
    So, obviously, donating to the Crusade is a no-brainer for me.
