  • Celebrate the American worker

    “I learned the value of hard work by working hard.” - Margaret Mead

    Labor Day is Monday.
    The only reason you probably know that is because you get an extra day off work (hopefully), or your kids don’t have school that day.
    For many of us, Labor Day is the symbolic end of summer. (Can someone please pass the Kleenex?)
    However, in terms of a “holiday,” Labor Day probably doesn’t mean much to you.
    But, it should.
    Labor Day is a public holiday held in honor of working people.

  • Get the skills employers want most

    Every job requires a certain mix of skills and knowledge. A welder must read blueprints, retailers must have merchandising knowledge, software developers typically need to know C++ and so on.
    Yet, the skills that many employers value the most apply to nearly every position in every field. These skills, commonly referred to as soft skills, can give you an incredible edge whether you’re looking for your next career opportunity or already on the job.

  • Help is out there
  • Donate life

    Every week when I'm at the Marion County Judicial Center doing my public record chore I regularly and repeatedly hear people say "no" to being an organ donor when renewing their driver's license.
    It infuriates me.
    I just don't get it.

  • Automotive industry becomes regional point of pride

    By Rick Games

    For more than a century, America has had a fascination – a love affair, some say – with automobiles.
    Cars and trucks are more than transportation for us. In fact, few things are so deeply rooted in our culture. After all, most of us can hum the tune of “Little Red Corvette,” or “409” and recognize celebrity cars from Steve McQueen’s Mustang to Herbie the Love Bug.

  • Take time to appreciate others

    "Everyone wants to be appreciated, so if you appreciate someone, don't keep it a secret."
    - Mary Kay Ash

    I have worked at The Lebanon Enterprise for 12 years now, and the people I work with have become a second family to me.
    I’m not just saying that. I mean it.
    I think they would agree with me, too.
    We are a family.
    We’ve experienced lots of ups and downs together.

  • High school was a pleasant surprise

  • Repent, really?

    By Dennis Hagan
    Guest Columnist

    Editor’s note: This column was written in response to a column that appeared in the July 23 edition of the Enterprise.

    When I take a look around our great nation (through my own eyes versus the mass media), I see a nation that continues to bloom with compassion and good will. Where great people work hard every day to extend a helping hand to those less fortunate in economics and education.

  • School is back in session: Drive slow and let them grow

    Years ago J.T. Whitlock would run PSA commercials every year when school started. One of his favorite messages was “Drive slow and let them grow.” I thought these were a little on the corny side, but they were effective. Folks, school is starting this week and everyone is a little excited and out of their summer routine. Traffic will be heavy with all the moms and dads headed to school with their children for that first day. School buses will be out on the roads after a short summer recess. So, slow down, be patient and remember: Drive slow and let them grow.
