  • Letter: Smith deserved better

    I want to commend Tiffany Adams on her article in last week's Enterprise. It hit a nerve in me that I haven't had in many years. It's the hot topic in the African American community. If I may quote you, you said that it's 2011, not 1911. Some people in this community are still stuck in time. You also talked about how some teachers acted out their prejudices when you were a student in school.

  • Letter: Embarrassed by the school board

    I am embarrassed to be a Marion County citizen after watching the recent school board meeting that dealt with Mr. Smith's evaluation. Only Mr. Mullins seemed respectful of dealing with facts and focusing on Mr. Smith's work performance. This meeting appeared to be held with a planned agenda. This meeting seemed directed to run him out of town. Congratulations - this is exactly what was accomplished.

  • Letter: Higdons have blessed the community

    New Beginnings Community Church would like to express our gratitude to Jimmy and Jane Higdon of Higdon's IGA for their service to their community. Jimmy and Jane Higdon donated a huge amount of food to many churches, including our own food ministry, allowing us to continue to help struggling families in our community. We pray God's continued blessing over them, and we wish them well in all their future endeavors. They are both true examples of Christ's hands and feet in our community.

  • Letter: Officials should be just

    How are your elected officials to rule?

    The Bible's II Samuel, chapter 23, verse 3 says, "The God of Israel said, the rock  of Israel spake to me, he that ruleth over men must be just ruling in fear of God."

    Thomas Jefferson said, "There is scarcely a King (or would be king) in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh, get first all the people's money, then all their lands, and then make them and all their children slaves forever."

  • Letter: General donation will help many

    With the economic situation the way it is, it's been a difficult year for everyone. These dark days have given some people the opportunity to rise to the occasion and to shine as wonderful examples to the rest of us, to show us "how it's done." Two of those people in this category would be Jane and Jimmy Higdon.

  • Letter: Learning to cook with Susan's Kitchen

    Susan Spicer, you've taught me how to cook!

    As a young girl growing up in Loretto, my mom tried to teach me but I was more interested in social activities, such as dancing, working, hairstyles, etc. Consequently, I fed my family lots of tuna fish sandwiches, scrambled eggs and cornbread as they grew up.

  • Letter: Small town honesty

    My family was visiting from Texas during Christmas. My grandson went to Walmart and lost his wallet, thinking it was gone for good with all his Christmas money in it. But, because of Lewis Browne and his honesty, my grandson has his wallet back. Lewis made calls until he was able to locate my grandson. Thank goodness there are still caring and honest people.

  • Letter: Superintendent is supportive of evaluation
  • Letter: Stop the negative comments, for our kids' sake

    After seeing so much negative press around our School Superintendent Mr. Donald Smith, and our recently elected, re-elected, members of the school board I feel compelled to pen the following:

  • Letter: Enjoyed the holiday festival

    I just wanted to say kudos to the Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission and its director, Chris Hamilton, for another great year at the Heart of Kentucky Holiday Festival. We liked the new events and the bull riding at XB Arena was just great.

    Mr. Higdon of Higdon’s Foodtown and the state senate welcomed us and came by the Hampton Inn and had coffee with us. We met him last year at Big Jim’s Steakhouse and he remembered us when we went to his grocery!
