    If Tuesday morning (March 1) had dawned like Monday morning, then we could say that March was roaring in like a lion, so hopefully it would go out like a lamb. 

    But Tuesday morning was much tamer, so look out on March 31.

  • Life is good for Charlie Sheen, or is it?

    Watching someone you love self-destruct is torture.

    So, last week while most people were laughing at Charlie Sheen, star of “Two And A Half Men,” and his bizarre interviews on television and the radio, I couldn’t help but feel sorry for him.

    Long after a legislative session is in the history books, it is often remembered by just one or two of its most prominent bills. Early last week, the General Assembly gave its overwhelming approval to the one that will almost certainly top this year’s list.

  • Educated Public

    As the Marion County Board of Education goes through the process of hiring a new superintendent for the second time in less than two years, its members must be aware that everyone is watching.

    We’ve said it before and we’ll repeat it here: The selection of a superintendent is the single most important decision the board will make. Other decisions are certainly important, but none are as big as who will be the next leader of our school district.

  • Mission or intermission?

    The mission of the Lebanon Tourist & Convention Commission is to develop, increase and promote tourism in Lebanon and surrounding areas by featuring its history, culture, products and recreation/convention facilities.

    Our goal is to become a choice destination for group travel, conventions and individual leisure/recreation travel. Through these efforts, the commission seeks to increase visitor spending, local revenue and job development, thereby enhancing the area's quality of life.

  • Column: House remembers fallen veterans

    Over the course of the last week, the Kentucky House of Representatives honored fallen military members and their families in a solemn, moving ceremony in the House chamber. This tradition began in 2004 and the service has become one of the most significant experiences of the session.  

  • Column: Senate bills would help small business, honor veterans

    As the 2011 General Assembly Session draws to a close, many committees start to meet more frequently in order to address any unfinished business. Our mornings are occupied with committee meetings, reviewing bills with staff, and meeting with different advocates on the issues.
