  • Veterans deserve more

    “We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.”
    - Cynthia Ozick

    Memorial Day means different things to different people.
    For some, it’s a day off from work.
    For others, it’s the first official day of summer break.
    And, for many of us, it’s just another day at work.
    Far too few of us actually observe the day the way it was meant to be observed, which is to honor and remember all of the people who have died serving our country.

    By Stacey S. Manning

    There are moments in our lives when we will never forget where we were or what we were doing.

  • Executive's decision

    Jack Brammer of The Lexington Herald-Leader’s Bluegrass Politics blog reported last Friday that Gov. Steve Beshear has released the names of Republicans who are his “supporters.” The list of 70 GOP members who are endorsing Beshear’s re-election bid appears at the end of the entry.

    And the first name on the list is Lebanon Mayor Gary Crenshaw. (To read the full blog entry, go here http://tinyurl.com/3epwevf.)

  • Driven to succeed

    Peggy Downs is a special person.

    I learned that quickly as a teenager boarding school bus No. 173 every morning and afternoon. Every single day as I got on the school bus, Peggy always greeted me with a warm smile.

    However, one particular summer morning sticks out in my mind. 

  • Too much news, not enough print

    Putting together a newspaper is often like trying to figure out how to fit round pegs into square holes. Other times, it's like trying to fit octagon-shaped pegs into trapezoid-shaped holes.

    And then there are the rare occasions when it's like trying to fit pentagon-, rhombus- and octagon-shaped pegs into two different triangular-shaped holes.

    This past week was one of those rare occasions.

  • The Right to Know

    By Melissa Knight, Guest columnist

    After reading the article, "Tourism changes in the works," which appeared in The Lebanon Enterprise on Wed., April 27, I feel compelled to respond with concerns I and many others I know have about what is happening politically with the Lebanon Tourist & Convention Commission (tourism).

  • The rookie has arrived

    Webster needs to add a new word to next year's dictionary.

    I've always heard that the arrival of a newborn brings sleep deprivation to a household.

    Folks, sleep deprivation doesn't touch the state of mind I'm in.

    In my farewell column in the Enterprise, I announced that my wife and I would soon be drafting a rookie.

    After nine months of being extra nice to my wife (sorry honey, that was a limited warranty), the rookie has arrived.

  • Teacher has students ‘oink’ at boy

    There was a time in years gone by if a teacher had told students to “oink” at a classmate in hopes of shaming him into cleaning up his messy desk, nothing would have been said about it. It may even have been funny, and may have accomplished what the teacher hoped.
