  • 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.

    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.

    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.

  • The face of child abuse

    It's been more than 10 years, but I can still see her face.

    Her name was Megan.

  • Learning to live with our divisions

    This year, the United States will mark the sesquicentennial of the Civil War. While we as a nation will commemorate this event, I hesitate to call it a celebration considering more Americans were killed in that conflict than in both World Wars combined.

    I haven’t done my taxes yet.

    It’s April 10 and time is ticking down. But I’m not in panic mode yet. I still have a week and a day — that’s a lifetime. Since April 15 is on a Friday this year, the tax deadline has been extended until April 18. I’m not sure the reason behind the extension but I’ll take it.
