  • Letter: Firefighters did a good job

    We recently had an early morning house fire scare. The house filled with smoke, and we could not find the course so we called 911. The dispatcher notified the Gravel Switch Fire Department. 

    I should add that this was the worst weather night of the season. 

    It was sleeting, freezing rain, and snowing with temperatures in the teens. They arrived promptly, took control and began looking for the source of the smoke. It was hard work because of the type of construction of our house.

    Dog gone
    On Dec. 5, I arrived home to hear a gruesome account of a brutal killing of a beautiful Akita dog. It was blond in color and it had visited my home off and on for three days. It won my heart over in such a short time. He was a big dog but a playful pup at heart.

    Marion County has nothing to be ashamed of
    I found the column entitled “Going down Marion County’s memory lane” published in the Nov. 13 edition of The Lebanon Enterprise to be quite interesting. Especially when I came across the name of my late father, George W. Trotter.

    Maker’s Mark, you let your hometown down
    Last week marked the one-year anniversary of the shooting of a Marion County Sheriff Deputy. It was something that I thought I would never see happen in my hometown and it was something that hadn't happened here in over 100 years. The painful memories for Marion County and Rakes’ sisters and friends have not ceased.

    Remembering our children
    Every year across the United States and around the world, families must deal with the holiday season after the unthinkable has happened — the death of a precious child.

  • The Caring Place needs support

    On Nov. 22, 1992, The Caring Place opened its doors to women and children who were abused by their loved ones. Since that time, 6,000 people from Marion, Taylor, Nelson, Washington, Adair, Jefferson, LaRue and other counties have received services from our shelter. From the beginning, the outpouring of generosity and commitment from this community had exceeded our wildest dreams. We received cards and letters of encouragement and recognition from city and county officials, schools, businesses and churches.

  • Letter: Domestic Terrorism

    The 9/11 terrorist attack on this country was diabolical and expensive. But far, far more costly than the 3,000 American lives and three buildings lost that day was the subsequent cost … 6,735 young American kids that died on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan (so far) and the trillion dollar-plus  that it cost to prosecute that war.
