  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Double your investment
  • Higdon endorses James Comer for US Congress

    One of the first representatives I got to know when I was sworn in as a state representative in 2003 was Representative Jamie Comer. Jamie was the youngest member of the General Assembly and had established himself as a leader in the House of Representatives. I have been very thankful over the years that Jamie helped me in those early years of my newly elected position.

  • Representative Tom Burch helps people

    My name is Marsha Van Hook, and I live in Somerset. I have worked closely for many years with Representative Tom Burch of Louisville. Rep. Burch has always been willing to listen and discuss issues related to intellectual, and developmental disabilities, mental illness and substance abuse. I know from experience how the lives of Kentuckians with intellectual or developmental disabilities, or with mental illness and substance abuse have improved with his help.

  • Support Jim Gray

    I’d like to say first this is the most important election in recent times.   
    It is disgusting when only 30 percent voted last year and look who we ended up with as governor. There is going to be a lot of out-of-state money coming in to influence the outcome of this election. The working and middleclass are going to be most affected by this election so GET OUT AND VOTE!
    I’m supporting Mayor Jim Gray for U.S. Senate because he is a proven leader.   

  • Voters can trust Brandon Reed

    We’d like to encourage your readers to get to know the candidates on the ballot before they vote this election. Presidential races sometimes overshadow down ballot races and this year is no exception. Please know there are other very important offices on the ballot including U.S. Senate, Congress, State Senate, all 100 seats of the Kentucky State House and city council races.
