  • Innocent until proven guilty

    Like half the population of the United States (and at this point, even the world), I took an interest in the Casey Anthony trial, which recently reached a verdict, as most of you already know. I wouldn't say I was obsessed with it on a Nancy Grace scale, but I would tune in every once in a while to watch the trial and home videos that were broadcast on every news channel. 

  • Don't get beat by the heat

    With the way things have been going this summer, maybe we should all take a lesson from the Dallas Mavericks.

    That's right, we need to do what we can to beat the heat.

    Weather forecasters are calling for temperatures in the 90s in several parts of Kentucky this week, with the potential for heat indexes as high as 110 degrees. For our purposes, the heat index would be the opposite of wind chill factor.

  • Don't forget about Kara

    Every day when I arrive to work and when I leave to go home, I see Kara Tingle Rigdon's face.

    For months, a missing person's poster has been taped on the Enterprise's front door that includes Kara's photo and information about her disappearance.

    This Sunday, July 17, will mark the one-year anniversary of when she was last seen.

    My life has been awesome. I know that sounds like bragging, but it's true. I've taken great vacations, made so many great friends, had so many wonderful teachers and professors and had so many great opportunities.

    We all like to think of ourselves as patriotic and good American citizens.

    Are you searching for your roots? The Marion County Public Library is blessed to have a well-stocked genealogy room on its premises. If you've not been in the genealogy room, allow me a moment to tell you about its contents, uses and how you can help out other researchers.

  • It's important to love yourself, inside and out

    Recently, before Father’s Day festivities began, I was attempting to pick out the perfect outfit: something casual, but also comfortable. I finally settled on a good pair of jeans and a nice orange t-shirt and went from there. I automatically assumed that I looked okay until a few hours later, when I went to a mirror to check. 

  • Think before you drink

    Drinking and driving is something I learned about at a very young age. In fact, I remember the very first time I was faced with it. I remember it like it was yesterday.

  • Don’t wait... get hydrated

    By Josey Crew

    The summer is here, and we have already endured some very hot days.
    Hopefully, we are all eating less, exercising more, and staying hydrated by drinking more water.
    Water, the nutrient our body needs the most, also helps prevent dehydration. The effects of dehydration can range from thirst to kidney failure and are usually silent but progressive.
    Therefore, we need to pay attention to the early signs of water loss because before we know it, we can become severely dehydrated.
