    Proposed U.S. strike on Syria raises major concerns
    Perhaps my age — late 80s — leads me to reflect on the past even while I am gravely concerned about the present, specifically now the proposed U.S. strike on Syria. Memory brings up the key role of Damascus in the history of religion. And as I view the President and the Secretary of State declaiming the rightness of their call to arms, memory brings up their more enlightened years. To them I write:

    Let Memory Be the Light
    For John Kerry and Barack Obama

    More books wanted?
    The Marion County Heritage Center in Lebanon has asked for my book called "St. Francis of Assisi Beginnings" covering the 100th Anniversary of the church at St. Francis, Ky., in 1996. However, right away I sold all of the 1,000 books that I had printed and never reordered. I've had a few people over the years to call and ask for one but I didn't have enough names to reorder.  

  • Letter to the editor: Senators should be commended for resolution

    In the name of Kentuckians all along the route of the proposed Bluegrass Pipeline, I write to commend Senator Jimmy Higdon and the other eight Kentucky senators who co-sponsored a resolution expressing the desire of the Senate to protect our state from abuse of eminent domain and from unscrutinized siting of and absence of regulation for the misguided and frightening project called the Bluegrass Pipeline.

    Pipeline people are singing out of tune
    "Amazing grace, how sweet the sound..." Yet, we were disturbed to read the Enterprise report that at last week's information meeting, Bluegrass pipeline officials, backed up by police, told the good Sisters of Loretto to stop the flow of their pipeline of grace, and stop singing.

    Say no to pipeline
    I have followed, with interest, the developments surrounding the so-called 
    Bluegrass pipeline and still, for the life of me cannot figure out where the long term benefit is for the residents along the proposed route of Kentucky (Marion, LaRue, Nelson, Hardin, Anderson, Woodford, Scott, Franklin, etc). I ask you, is it really worth the offered price to have your land disturbed for construction and to be at the mercy of the pipeline for any projects where ground is broken?

  • Letter to the Editor: I love my two moms

    My name is Tyler Gribbins and I would like to tell you about one thing that matters most to me, and that is about having two moms. For 11 years now I have grown up with two mom, Leigh Ann Fogle and Debbie Gribbins. Most people are against gay women or gay men, but I am 100 percent for being yourself. When people put mean things in the newspaper about gay is a horrible thing. It really upsets me and my two moms. Now I will give you examples.

  • Letters to the editor, July 10

    Impressed with honor guard
    On June 28, 2013, my wife and I were at Lee’s Chicken in Lebanon sitting in the corner booth looking out the window when these gentlemen walked to the corner and were just standing there. They wore uniforms that appeared to be Navy uniforms. Then two other men walked up, and they were also wearing a uniform. Then suddenly, more and more kept walking up, each wearing a different uniform.

  • BIG MAC DECISION

    Last week, I announced that the Kentucky Department of Corrections would not enter into a new contract with Marion Adjustment Center once the current contract expires on June 30.
    It was a difficult decision, and brought an end to a successful partnership between the Commonwealth and MAC. This success is a direct result of MAC's effective programming and dedicated staff, and is in no way a reflection on the well-trained workforce and efficient operation in Marion County.
    The decision was strictly a function of inmate population and institutional capacity.

  • In search of relatives

    Does anyone have a great grandmother or great aunt by the name of Gertrude who married Thedis Coppage Brown from Bradfordsville in the early 1900s? She and Brown had two children. They were living in Marion County in 1910.
