  • Got jobs? Kentucky sure does

    Site Selection is not a magazine most of us would keep on our coffee table, but for those in government and business who track economic development, this publication is one not to be missed.

    Fortunately, it has had a lot of good things to say about Kentucky in recent years, and over the past two, it has awarded us its annual Governor’s Cup for having more major job announcements than any other state on a per capita basis.

  • Mid-Kentucky Chorus shall go on

    By G. B. Dixon

    "We are going to continue!"
    Such is the absolute resolution, the unequivocal promise, and the certain future of Mid-Kentucky Chorus as told to me by its spokesperson, Susan Spalding, on Sunday. Without hiccup, glitch, or gap the group will continue its traditional four-concert schedule, delighting us, as they have, in the fall, at Christmas, in winter, and spring with a wide selection of music. That schedule is now getting its finishing touches and should be out soon. Are you on the mailing list?

    Integrity matters
    Last week I was in my car when I heard an announcement for a special-called school board meeting that was to begin shortly. Knowing the Marion County School Board’s pattern for special-called meetings at inopportune times, I decided to attend.
    At the meeting I spoke to Marvin and Mark Gardner, and local attorney Ted Lavit. Let me say that I do not mind being associated with these fine gentlemen and I commend their civic involvement, but to set the record straight, I had no knowledge of their interests in being there.

  • Well, since everyone else is talking about it...

    By McKenna Dosier

    If you haven't heard about the incident at the Cincinnati Zoo over the holiday weekend, you probably live in the jungle with gorillas because it has been all over the internet.
    In case you haven't heard, I'll recap. A 4-year-old boy was visiting the zoo with his mother, who was also apparently watching several other children on the trip. The mother told the boy to hold on to her back pocket while she turned to take a photo.

  • The unthinkable happens

    By Erica Osborne

    It's a sadness. A death. A funeral. And sometimes you are angry and sometimes you cry. And sometimes you think you are OK, and then you see one of the Dominican Sisters crying and you start crying again.
    But before you can really wallow in the despair that you feel, the phone rings.
    "Miss Osborne, it's Jacob. I just heard the news. Are you sure the college is really going to close? What am I going to do now?"

  • The interim is used to review issues affecting the state

    The General Assembly may be at its busiest during the first several months of the year, when the House and Senate are focused on passing new laws, but the summer and fall months are important as well to the legislative process.

    Well-reasoned, well-written
    I'm superintendent in Bullitt County and just read your editorial about the petition. I have no skin in that game, except that I believe your community really needs that facility funding, but I think that your editorial is exceptionally well-reasoned and well-written and I wanted you to know it.

  • Finding new radio stations

    By McKenna Dosier
    Summer intern

    Moving to a new town is always scary. You have to meet new people and find new radio stations. Not to mention pack and unpack all your boxes in and out of your tiny car because, let's face it, everything is a necessity.
    Hello, my name is McKenna Dosier and I'm the new summer intern at The Lebanon Enterprise.
    I'm originally from Kenton County, Kentucky where I live with my father, Randy; mother, Jodi; younger brother, Caden and my dog, Denali.
