  • Guest editorial: Campaign signs might look good in a bonfire

    By The Kentucky New Era

    There are so many reasons to be thankful for autumn in Kentucky. The brilliant landscape of yellow, orange and red trees. A merciful end to those humid summer days that feel like steamy soup hanging in the air even after sundown. Chili suppers, school festivals and the anticipation of Thanksgiving.

  • Arts for all

     Kentucky Classic Theater is an asset that we hope continues to grow, attract visitors to our community and improve the quality of life in Marion County.

    In order to do that, it needs more financial support.

    In the past few years, the local theater company has been managed basically by one person, Robin Humphress of Lebanon. Financially, it has been funded through local sponsors and Humphress’s persistence. 

  • Editorial Cartoon: National Newspapers Week
  • High on the Hog

     It’s a tradition for this newspaper to write an editorial the week after Marion County Country Ham Days to praise the Chamber of Commerce and the countless volunteers that make the annual fall festival such a huge success.

    And, each year, it seems the festival continues to grow.

  • Explicit: ‘Gun tourism’ is for adults

    By the Frankfort State Journal editorial staff

    Looking for an exotic vacation spot? Tired of trips to the beach, the mountains or an amusement park? Need a place where the family can go to let off a little steam, maybe some aggression, make some noise, mess up some stuff?

  • Home or away, part 2

    The Enterprise wrote an editorial Feb 23, 2011, arguing that the superintendent of Marion County Public Schools should live in Marion County. Last week’s 3-1 decision by the Marion County Board of Education to grant Superintendent Taylora Schlosser 18 more months to establish residency in Marion County has inspired us to reiterate our position.
    The superintendent should live in the district. It doesn’t matter if that superintendent is Hugh Spalding, Roger Marcum, Donald Smith, Chuck Hamilton or Schlosser.

  • Taking a leap of faith

    By Matt Overing
    Summer intern

    I have always looked up to my brother, but don’t tell him that.
    Four years ago, he was getting hitched. He, at 21, had a full-time job, a fiancé and a dog. He knew what he wanted to do with his life.
    I graduated from Boyle County High School in 2010, and had no idea what I wanted to be or do with myself. I chose the University of Kentucky and selected political science as my major. It felt like an easy option, but I was lost. I didn’t know what I wanted.

  • Ready, steady, go

    The Marion County Public School System has big dreams.
    That was evident during the district’s strategic planning summit last week at Centre Square, where school staff, site-base decision making council members, local officials and community leaders discussed the future of Marion County.

  • Seeing the forest

    When is the last time you got together with thousands of people to do something?
    We don’t mean when were you in a crowd of thousands of people. Maybe you attended a sporting event, ran in a road race or visited a festival, but you — and the rest of the people — weren’t there to work together.
    Well, more than 3,500 people did get together Sunday at TG Kentucky and they did have the same purpose.
    They planted a forest.

  • Fit as a fiddle

    In spite of cold weather and less-than-ideal road conditions, hundreds of people made it to this year's Kentucky Bluegrass Music Kickoff.
    When the festival started, it was held at the Centre Square Convention Center, but it didn't take long for the event to need more space. Since then, it's been held at Marion County High School.
