• Kentucky Duel Credit Scholarships can provide relief for families, students

    On June 1, I proudly stood with Governor Matt Bevin as he announced additional funding for students participating in dual credit courses with the establishment of the new Kentucky Duel Credit Scholarship. Along with the Workforce Development Secretary Hal Heiner, Governor Bevin announced that $7.5 million will be allocated to school districts across the state for the 2016-17 academic year.
    Dual credit programs allow students to receive both high school and postsecondary academic credit for approved courses, at either a local high school or postsecondary institution.

  • 'I’ve been everywhere, man'

    I always smile when I hear the Johnny Cash song in which he claims to have been “everywhere, man.” Though I will never be able to spout off those famous lyrics like the man in black, I still find myself tapping my foot trying to pick out all the different places he lists where I’ve been. Truth is, it’s quite a few. I’ve even lived in some of them.

    “I’ve been everywhere, man.”

  • Three people and a whole lot of bull

    By Summer Intern McKenna Dosier

    It's no secret that this presidential race has been a hot topic, but one thing that has hardly been mentioned is agriculture.

    Agriculture has been a neglected industry, often being pushed to the back burner by "more important and popular" issues. But I ask, what could be more important than the industry that feeds the world?

  • Saying goodbye to St. Catharine College

    On June 3, I excused myself from a family function, walked into my house alone and wept. Three days of fielding calls from the media and processing what it meant that St. Catharine College was closing caught up with me. I lie in bed for an hour, numb again, until my wife came home and found me. I sobbed, my body shaking.

    None of this is easy. St. Catharine College and its people have my heart. 

  • Got jobs? Kentucky sure does

    Site Selection is not a magazine most of us would keep on our coffee table, but for those in government and business who track economic development, this publication is one not to be missed.

    Fortunately, it has had a lot of good things to say about Kentucky in recent years, and over the past two, it has awarded us its annual Governor’s Cup for having more major job announcements than any other state on a per capita basis.

  • Mid-Kentucky Chorus shall go on

    By G. B. Dixon

    "We are going to continue!"
    Such is the absolute resolution, the unequivocal promise, and the certain future of Mid-Kentucky Chorus as told to me by its spokesperson, Susan Spalding, on Sunday. Without hiccup, glitch, or gap the group will continue its traditional four-concert schedule, delighting us, as they have, in the fall, at Christmas, in winter, and spring with a wide selection of music. That schedule is now getting its finishing touches and should be out soon. Are you on the mailing list?

  • Well, since everyone else is talking about it...

    If you haven't heard about the incident at the Cincinnati Zoo over the holiday weekend, you probably live in the jungle with gorillas because it has been all over the internet.
    In case you haven't heard, I'll recap. A 4-year-old boy was visiting the zoo with his mother, who was also apparently watching several other children on the trip. The mother told the boy to hold on to her back pocket while she turned to take a photo.

  • The unthinkable happens

    By Erica Osborne

    It's a sadness. A death. A funeral. And sometimes you are angry and sometimes you cry. And sometimes you think you are OK, and then you see one of the Dominican Sisters crying and you start crying again.
    But before you can really wallow in the despair that you feel, the phone rings.
    "Miss Osborne, it's Jacob. I just heard the news. Are you sure the college is really going to close? What am I going to do now?"

  • The interim is used to review issues affecting the state

    The General Assembly may be at its busiest during the first several months of the year, when the House and Senate are focused on passing new laws, but the summer and fall months are important as well to the legislative process.

  • Finding new radio stations

    By McKenna Dosier
    Summer intern

    Moving to a new town is always scary. You have to meet new people and find new radio stations. Not to mention pack and unpack all your boxes in and out of your tiny car because, let's face it, everything is a necessity.
    Hello, my name is McKenna Dosier and I'm the new summer intern at The Lebanon Enterprise.
    I'm originally from Kenton County, Kentucky where I live with my father, Randy; mother, Jodi; younger brother, Caden and my dog, Denali.
