  • It's great to be aboard

    Hello, Marion County!

    I can't believe that I am actually here at The Lebanon Enterprise and serving the community. It has been too long since I have started pursuing the education needed for this career path at Lindsey Wilson College and to be honest, I was not sure I would make it this far.

  • 'Hello Dolly' at The Opera House was a good show

    "I've worked hard and I've become rich and friendless and mean. In America, that's about as far as you can go."

    - Horace Vandergelder

    If you love "quick wit," then you should have seen "Hello Dolly," by the youth actors of the Central Kentucky Community Theatre at the Opera House in Springfield.

  • Determination

    De•ter•mi•na•tion (n): firm or fixed intention to achieve a desired end.

     

    The Merriam-Webster Dictionary's definition of "determination" is not a very good one, in my opinion.

    I'd like to write my own definition(s), if I may.

    Determination: A natural instinct to push oneself further, even if it's painful.

  • A reason to wink back

    It's been a few weeks since the most recent drug court graduation was held in the 11th Circuit, which includes Marion County, but for those who completed the program, it was a significant event.

    It was both a recognition and a reminder that they can and have been living their lives drug and alcohol free.

    Bobby Burke Sr. of Lebanon is one of those graduates.

  • How low can we go?

    National media commentators have made a big deal about President Barack Obama's relatively poor showing in the May 22 Kentucky Primary. Considering that he didn't have any opposition, it probably does mean something that more than 42 percent of the Democrats who did vote cast their ballots for uncommitted.

    On the Republican side former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney received 66.8 percent of his party's votes.

  • Getting a higher education online?

    By Erin McCoy

    It's about time there was a backlash against skyrocketing college tuition costs that are dooming countless young people in America to a lifetime of debt.

  • Balanced Senate postal reform bill is best solution

    By Max Heath

    Now that the U.S. Senate has passed bipartisan S 1789 to reform the ailing U.S. Postal Service, critics are trying to disable the bill on its way to the House. Both postal unions and USPS want more for their side, and some Republicans mistakenly believe the bill burdens taxpayers.
    Unfortunately, Kentucky Senators Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul both bought into that logic and opposed 1789.

  • Taking one for the team

    Lessons in equality are still being learned.

    You may have seen a national news item about Our Lady of Sorrows Academy, which recently decided to forfeit the Arizona Charter Athletic Association state baseball championship game against Mesa Preparatory Academy.

    Had Our Lady of Sorrows suspended players for misbehavior? Did the school discover some kind of cheating scandal?

  • It's time to celebrate being a girl

    If you saw a crowd of people running on treadmills on Main Street in Lebanon Friday, along with a life-size bulldog doing the humpty dance, don't freak out. You weren't seeing things.

    Friday, The Lebanon Enterprise hosted its first annual Main Street Treadmill Challenge.

    The event's goal was two-fold:

    One, to raise money for Girls on the Run;

    And, two, to promote health and wellness in our community.
