  • Epic fails, free throws and Coach Ferriell

    “Taters!”

    That’s one of my nicknames, which was coined by my middle school basketball coach and physical education teacher at St. Charles Middle School - the infamous David Ferriell.

    “Girl, you been eatin’ too many taters,” he would say, teasing me during P.E. class.

  • Dear God, It's me again

    By Delena Trent, Guest columnist

    Since our inception in 1993, The Caring Place has written many articles in The Lebanon Enterprise. I have given insight of the feelings and the pain of domestic violence from the point of view from the women who have experienced it. I have explained to you about the struggles of the families who came to us and what they face daily. We have also given the perspectives from staff.

  • DIY Fright Night

    People like being scared.

    Not all the time, but with certain safeguards in place, people enjoy a good startle.

    That's why roller coasters and horror films remain popular. They give us a chance to experience something spooky without any serious risk of real physical harm, assuming the rides are inspected and regularly maintained.

    With Halloween fast approaching, we'll see plenty of ghouls, ghosts and goblins roaming the streets.

  • Living faith better than preaching it

    By Larry Rowell

    The 1st Amendment to the Constitution of the United States states that while Americans have the right to practice a religion of their choice, no government body has the right to establish a religion.

  • Trying to see a bigger picture

    Taking photos of tragic events is not something I enjoy nor is it something I take lightly. 

    At my first full-time newspaper job, one of the first accidents I covered involved a car that ran off the side of the road and flipped over. The parents, who were wearing seat belts, survived. The children, who were not belted, were thrown from the vehicle and killed.

  • Runner’s High

    I made an observation while working traffic control during The Bourbon Chase Friday night and watching thousands of runners jog to and through Marion County Friday and into the wee hours of Saturday morning.

    Well, actually, I made several observations.

  • Still printing

    Despite all the doomsayers out there writing obituaries for the nation’s newspaper industry, 150 million Americans - two out of three adults - read a local newspaper last week.

    Newspaper Association of America research from 2011 by Scarborough USA indicates almost 70 percent of your neighbors read either a printed newspaper or its online counterpart within the past seven days.

    How could that be?

  • Marion County Public Library begins ‘geeking’ out

    “GEEEEEEEK!”

    At my high school alma mater, if you did something like dropped your tray in the cafeteria or tripped and fell, you could expect to hear the student chorus chime in. I have a vague memory of getting “geeked” one time. I was embarrassed at first, then put it behind me.

  • Chesser is alive and, I hope, well

    I hope that Randall Chesser is in a comfy bed, feet propped up, with a warm, fluffy comforter tucked over his slight body.

    I hope that his favorite television show is on in front of him, or his favorite game, or that someone is reading his favorite book to him.

    I hope that he is surrounded by his favorite aunts, uncles, cousins, and relatives.

    I hope that he’s wearing a big grin, one like I’ve seen in the school photos of him.
