  • Memorial Day - a day to be grateful to those who serve

    With most schools already out for the year and the sun not setting until well into the evening, it's understandable if many look to the upcoming three-day holiday weekend as the unofficial start of summer.

    Memorial Day is about much more than that, though.

    For nearly 150 years now, it has been a day of remembrance, a day to recall the sacrifice that so many gave for our nation.

  • Balanced Senate postal reform bill is best solution

    By Max Heath

    Now that the U.S. Senate has passed bipartisan S 1789 to reform the ailing U.S. Postal Service, critics are trying to disable the bill on its way to the House. Both postal unions and USPS want more for their side, and some Republicans mistakenly believe the bill burdens taxpayers.
    Unfortunately, Kentucky Senators Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul both bought into that logic and opposed 1789.

  • Taking one for the team

    Lessons in equality are still being learned.

    You may have seen a national news item about Our Lady of Sorrows Academy, which recently decided to forfeit the Arizona Charter Athletic Association state baseball championship game against Mesa Preparatory Academy.

    Had Our Lady of Sorrows suspended players for misbehavior? Did the school discover some kind of cheating scandal?

  • It's time to celebrate being a girl

    If you saw a crowd of people running on treadmills on Main Street in Lebanon Friday, along with a life-size bulldog doing the humpty dance, don't freak out. You weren't seeing things.

    Friday, The Lebanon Enterprise hosted its first annual Main Street Treadmill Challenge.

    The event's goal was two-fold:

    One, to raise money for Girls on the Run;

    And, two, to promote health and wellness in our community.

  • Girls rule

    Girls in Marion County are lucky to have such good support from organizations like Girls on the Run, 4-H, and Girls Scouts. We need to give a big pat on the back to the adult volunteers and parents that help make these programs available to our girls. With these programs, girls learn to believe in themselves and to grow up to be strong and accomplished women.

  • Rich should 'step up'

    "One man with courage is a majority." - Thomas Jefferson

    The spirit of Carnegie needs to be reborn in the multi-, multi-millionaire, billionaire class.

    They have the excess funds to build bridges, dams, roadways, libraries, universities and vocational schools.

    The middle class and families need not, should not, be burdened with these issues.

    The super rich elites need to step up and do what is good for all and the future.
