  • Your local BackPack program needs your support

    Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland’s BackPack Program specifically targets school children who are at-risk of being hungry over the weekend when school meals are unavailable. Each child on the program discreetly receives a bag of 14-17 kid-friendly food items upon leaving school for the weekend.

  • Mattingly family raises $20,000 for Hosparus

    I am pleased to share that two fundraisers put on by my family in support of Hosparus Green River raised a total of $20,000 for local hospice patients and families.
    In 2005, my brother Gerald Mattingly lost his battle with cancer. As a way to honor his memory and his life, my family and I decided to host a charity golf scramble to give back. The 10th annual Gerald Mattingly Golf Scramble was held last month at Lebanon Country Club, and I want to personally thank the 96 golfers who came out to support hospice care on a dreary October day.

  • Say goodbye to Democracy

    Let's hope our fragile democracy can survive the election of Trump. I'm scared to death we will never fully recover from this.
    President-elect Trump is ignorant of even the most basic tenets of our Constitution, nor does he appear to understand how the three branches of government work as checks and balances.

  • Honor guard is thankful for new bus

    The Marion County Veterans Honor Guard has been in operation since it conducted its first military honors at a veteran’s funeral in February 1996. This initial group had no uniforms and used borrowed World War I weapons. Since that time, we have progressed to 44 volunteer members, all wearing the uniform of the service they served in while on active duty. We have two sets of weapons assigned and have traveled in our own bus for many years. However, our bus had gotten old, with defective heater and air conditioning and a leaking roof.

  • A nickel and dime tiny government system

    Remember, “Things are never what they seem.”
    A nickel and dime tiny government system set up within a larger government system can slowly control and bleed you to death. To match funds sounds good. If the matching is not enough then more “matching” comes.

  • Higdon endorses Rand Paul

    I’m writing to endorse Senator Rand Paul for U.S. Senate and ask that you consider voting for him on Nov. 8.
    I’ve grown to know Rand as a friend over the course of the last six years. Whether it’s been his fight against over-reaching federal regulations that harm our farmers and business owners, his defense of our Second Amendment Right to bear arms, or simply wanting to cut government waste and over-spending, on the issues, Rand has been solid.

  • Turn out for Terry

    Editor’s note: The following letter to the editor was emailed and postmarked prior to the Enterprise prior to the Enterprise’s deadline for opinion pieces regarding the election.

  • Don’t let this opportunity slip by

    On Nov. 8, we have a chance to invest in the future of our greatest resource – our children and grandchildren – all youth of Marion County.
    Education pays in so many ways as it prepares our students for job opportunities and prosperity.
    Four good reasons to support the nickel tax are:
    1. It is earmarked only for facility improvement.
    2. It is matched dollar for dollar through the state government.
    3. It replaces the 4 percent tax increase allowed by law, thus reducing the net financial burden of the county’s taxpayers.
