  • Dreaming Big

    Martin Luther King could have chosen an easy life. He could have chosen safety and security, but instead he ventured out into the deep waters, to borrow an analogy from William Turner, a professor at Berea College and this year's featured speaker for the Martin Luther King celebration at First Baptist Church.

  • RESOLUTIONS

    While many people made (and have probably already broken) New Year's resolutions, we thought it might be worth recommending some resolutions for the community and the powers that be. So, here it goes.

     

    1.) Get E-911 already!

    The editorial staff of this newspaper (past and present) has been crusading for Enhanced 911 services for more than a decade and, as we start a new year, we will continue our cry for E-911.

  • Celebrate Safely

    "What are you doing for New Year's?"

    There's a good chance you have been asked or will be asked that question some time in the next few days. We hope that you do something you'll enjoy, whether it's dancing the night away, toasting the new year with friends and family or just spending a quiet night at home.

  • Big decision

    No one is perfect.

    We all make mistakes. We don't always use the best judgment and, occasionally, we act before we think.

    We are human, after all.

  • Coordinated effort

    The Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission was born of controversy, and many people have grumbled about it from the beginning.

    We have not agreed with every decision the commissioners have made, and we have not supported every idea tourism officials have presented to the community. Nevertheless, the tourism commission is worth preserving, and it has done good things in and for our community.

  • Ways to support the troops

    There are thousands of troops stationed around the world that can benefit from some support from home. Being away from one's native country can cause feelings of homesickness and potentially loneliness. All it takes is a few encouraging words to let servicemen and women know you are thinking about them and appreciate their efforts.

    So what can you do to show your support? There are many things, actually.
    Here are a few ideas and you can build on them.
