  • Vote Brandon Reed for state rep

    The other side of the story
    First and foremost, I believe that the people of Lebanon are only hearing one side of the story when it comes to the actions that are currently being discussed in the English department at Marion County High School. I believe it’s time to hear from a student. As a Marion County High School graduate and valedictorian of the 2013 class, I am blown away by the backlash towards the English department by some in our community. Every college student is busy, but I believe it is more important for me to address these concerns.

  • Trump is no business expert

    Trump is a bully
    Say goodbye to everything that makes America great and keeps our democracy working if Trump is elected. I refuse to believe that a majority of Americans could be fooled by a con artist, bully and a fascist. Oh, and Trump is unqualified to be president of anything. He’s filed bankruptcy many times and exploited his employees and committed fraud via Trump “University.” He’s an ugly, hateful American who will destroy what’s left of middle class and democracy.

  • Letter to the editor: Vote Carson on March 5

    Voters across the Bluegrass state will vote in our first Republican caucus on March 5, which will select delegates to go to the National Republican Convention in July. Our votes will now count more than ever since we are casting our votes along with other early states.

    Advocates for animals
    Susan Spicer is one of the bravest people I know. Why? Because she goes to bat for the voiceless — animals that are abused and neglected. When people see this “behavior,” like people starving their animals, or confining them without shelter, or throwing them out a car window, they call her to deal with the people doing the harm. Even hearing about what people do to their pets is hard to listen to, much less to speak to them and get them to stop.

  • Reduce the cost of the health care industry

    The Republicans keep claiming Bernie Sanders can't pay for it ... but he can ... the costs and the premiums must balance each other to avoid deficits ... BUT ... and here is the key that NOBODY is talking about ... you can either balance the scale by increasing the premiums (we DON'T want that) ... OR ... you reduce the cost of the health care industry (we DO want that).

  • God bless law enforcement officers

    I had the opportunity to read the Enterprise’s story on Floyd Cook. Cook was certainly not a monster. He was much worse.
    Cook’s sister stated how much he loved animals and his church going practices because he loved animals and went to church. Does that give him the right to shoot law enforcement officers and try to run over them with his vehicle? Does loving animals and going to church give him the right to go around raping women?

  • Advocating for the pensions we earned

    As members of the General Assembly return to Frankfort for the 2016 Regular Session, they will find themselves facing a multitude of challenges, one of the more critical being pension funding.  Legislative action in the 2013 Regular Session provided the framework for funding the plans managed by the Kentucky Retirement Systems (KRS). Public employee (and teacher) pensions will require tens of millions of new dollars in the budget simply to stem the erosion of funding levels.
